While the ceramic is being applied teflon is injected into the pores of the aluminum, resulting in the slickest, yet most durable surface in the world. These barrels are quiet, light, and accurate. Available in 12", 14", 16", and 20" for most guns.
The J&J Performance Ceramic Barrels are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.

very small bored paint i found cyclones work well, but does not like medium to large bored paint (i.e. bigball, pmi premiums) no walmart paint
light.........smart porting, so when balls break u dont get the ooz effect
threads are very weak, they seem to crumble, inconvienent bore size, barrel chips
this barrel came as a promotional offer with my speed so i figured what teh hay i will give it a try, i screwed it on and it was alot lighter than my freak and the stock barrel, so i liked that aspect of it. i stepped into the chrono ripped off a few shots, and it was shootin hot because of how tight the (big ball) paint fit to the barrell, so i turned it down and ripped slowly through the rest of the hopper, and about half way through i got a weak thud when i pulled the trigger, so i pulled the trigger agian and splat, the paint blew in my barrel.
so unless u are planing to use small bored paint (i.e. evils, cyclones) than you dont want to use this barrel, escpessially if there is only one kind of feild paint at your local field.
nice and light, but has two many weaknesses to give it anyhting but a 5
I love this barrel, ive tested a bunch of others but this one is the best! Its cheap, it works better then most barrels, and it looks cool. YOUR MARKER HAS TO LOOK COOL PEOPLE! oh bummer not enough words. hmmm what can i fill in the spaces with? STILL not enough words what do these people want? a book? its just a barrel people get over you cant write a book on a barrel
BUY! you wont regret anything. Im only giving it a 9 because only God is perfect.
Diablo,or PMI, The Diablos are cheap and fit through the barrel well
- Very Quiet
-Ball sometimes curves down and to the left
Well... I don't know why people say the barrel is very fragile and feels it will break, because it is sturdy. The barrel is very quiet compared to my stock barrel and I noticed a big difference. The accurate wasn't generally any better than my stock barrel on my A-5. I was a little disappointed that the ball would curve down and wasn't super accurate. Still, it is a good barrel for the money I paid, 50$ plus shipping on County Paintball.
Overall, the barrel is worth the money. It isn't expensive, it is light, very quiet, and durable. And how accurate can they make these things, nothing can be perfect. Great for woods ball and just plain having fun, maybe not professional though.

Don't know yet....
Very light, very very quiet... Not as fragile as others say. I had to send thi one backanywaybecause it was grossly oversized, so I beat it against a concrete wall to se if it would chip and it didn't
The first one I ordered from j&j was very very to big. I measured with a bore micrometer and it was a glass smooth .707 all the way down. I called them and they said it was a manufacturing flaw, so I sent it back (I paid postage :-(
The one I got in return was a snug .684
I shoot nelson anarchy upheaval, and it works great. Only other paint I have tried is pmi superswirl. It was hard as a rock and made a ZING sound going down the barrel! That was kinda cool. Anyway, I am happy, and will continue to buy from J&J.

J&J Apex adater

any .688-689 medium to high grade paintballs works fine
Light, low noise, looks good, very accurate, affordable
None so far
I got this barrel in order to replace the stock barrel of my Spyder MR1. It is very quiet, lots of porting, very light, extremely accurate, and it looks real good. Combine it with the J&J Apex adapter and an Apex tip, and you got yourself a killer setup. I am getting another one for my 98C.
I definitely recommend this barrel. Good bang for your buck

Getting an Invert Mini in a couple weeks (cant wait)
anything that isnt real cheap ass
Easy to shoot out breaks
Scratches very easily
Accuracy curves and drops shots
Ok well i bought this product due to all the reviews on this site, seems good with a good price but the accuracy is a joke even the stock barrel is better. I also have a 98 custom pro and has a thunderpig barrel on it and its sooooo much more accurate than the j&j ceramic. I thought at first it was paint but using the same paint on my 98. I came to the conclusion that its not the paint. good thing is nothing. I wasted my time and money with this barrel. Im not a hardout tourny player or anything. so im not too picky about upgrades but this barrel really does suck!!
You are better off paying for the family to go to dinner and just stick with your stock barrel or get freak kit or if u wanna get a cheap barrel then go CP. Anyone who says they can shoot dinner plate size target at a distance further than 20 feet is just full of it.

It doesn't seem to self clean well every time a ball break occurs.
I picked up one of these a couple weeks ago and have played several games with it since. So far it has been a VERY solid barrel. It has a consistenly accurate shot. I know the barrel is self cleaning but I have had an instance where I had a ball break and it was like the barrel wasn't self cleaning at all. I had to squeegee the barrel to get it to shoot straight.
For $40 you won't find a more accurate barrel. It's not perfect but nothing I have every played with has been. Very solid product especially for the money.

Affordable, Accurate enough, Light (weight)
Scratches Easy, Small Bore Size
I bought this barrel for one reason, and that was to put my Apex tip on the end of it. I did that and it's been working great for a year now. The barrel isn't as accurate as some of the higher end barrels out there, but it gets the job done for the $30 I spent on it. The one problem I have with it, is that it has a small bore size, and my area sells large cal. paint. Marb's are the only way to go for me, but who's complaining at that?
The J&J is overall, a solid, generic barrel for paintball. It's extremely affordable at an average of about $30, and is a must for any beginning player. It'll be worth your while to pick one up.

14" J&J Ceramic
Any except for cheap walmart brands like monster
I just got it today and tested it out in my backyard, i shot from 50 ft away at a wheelbarrow. first ball i shot broke and after two shots it had cleaned itself out, after that i hit it every single time. i also noticed that it is WAY quieter than my pilots stock barrel (which sounds like a cannon). all in all i am very satisfied so far and i cant wait to try it next time i go paintballing.
I would recommend it to anyone because its only like $35, accurate, looks pretty good, and quiet.
Mostly stock barrels...and a few upgrades friends have had

havent found the perfect type yet
Cheap and accurate
Funny bore size
I got this barrel the other day and have used it 2 times now....Its fairly accurate but I had a hard time finding a paint that matched the barrel. Its more accurate than my stock barrel, but because of the bore size it tends not to go as far....but only by about 25'
