It is accurate, but with all barrels the paint you use will affect accuracy. All you need is a paintball that fits well and is round and you will have great accuracy. I have a 16 inch winforce and I love it. It has great accuracy and is very very quiet. My gun was really loud with its stock barrel, but when I got the winforce It quieted down a lot.
gets dinged easy if you drop it
The winforce barrel works just as good as the higher priced barrels. I got mine for $35 and I'm glad I got it. If you cant afford the higher priced barrels, I suggest getting the taso winforce.
i'm a paintball sniper and this barrel is amazing, i have the 14 inch on my sheridan and its soo quiet and accurate its amazing, i'm shooting either zap or diablo paint and havn't had a single ball break in over 4 days of play. not only that but its light
its so beautifull i wouldn't want to scratch it, and the fact that its light makes me think it might dent easily
like i said above its quiet, accurate, light. my friends told me its really hard to hear when they're only 30 ft away........i would not hesitate to buy this barrel again.
- for the price you pay, its completely worth it.
- using my 14" I saw major increase in accuracy and tightness in pattern.
- one of the more quiet barrels.
- broke 1 ball in 2000 shot using my Spyder Compact 2000. My paint was cheap and entirely worthless. Buy standard/high quality paint and you shouldn't have a problem. Very low paint breakage.
- suseptible to nicks.(then again, aren't all high quality metal based barrels?)
- design is not the most flattering. But, the design does do its job so...
- the small rifling ports are small, but carry a good squeegee and you should be fine.
I paid $44.00 for my 14" barrel, and use it on my Spyder Compact 2000. The accuracy and performance of the gun I saw improve was truly commendable, but know that I also upgraded (at the same time) an ACI Sub Zero Expansion. I doubt it would really matter.
I swapped on my friend's Taso Stone Cold II, and found the results to be almost identical. (besides the price) The SCII did carry a tad farther, but only by about 3-5 feet. The Winforce was quieter also.
To any beginner, or budgetted player looking for an upgrade, this barrel will definately not disappoint you. You pay less than 50 bucks for a barrel that performs on-par or even out-does barrels that are twice as much.
WOW! I bought this barrel for my Spyder for only $32. It is the most quiet barrel i have ever seen. The only thing you can here it the ball striking your target. It is also incredibly accurate. I use 32 degrees competition piant and out of 1000 balls none of them broke. No other barrels in the price range ( or any barrel for that matter!) can compete with it. It is also extremely light
Nothing except that it feels so light that it seems like it will dent if you hit it on anything.
BUY THIS BARREL!
It is the best barrell I have seen.
I would recomend this barrell to everyone.
only 35 dollars
12-16 inches available
better than average accuracy
lightweight aluminum construction
An aluminum barrel, so easy to nick and ding.
Porting makes it hard to clean w/squeegee.
I would highly recommend this barrel to anyone, but especially a newbie or someone on a budget. It is super quiet, accurate(with good large bore paint), light, and best of all, dirt cheap! if you have the extra money, it might be better to get a dye or smart parts, but when it comes down to it, you get more out of your dollar with the Winforce than just about any other barrel. This barrel is designed to offer an option to players on a budget, and it does this very well.
This is an EXELLENT barrel for the price. It is especially good if you are short on dough and need a descent barrel. It is light, quiet, and accurate. This, in my opinion, should be your first upgrade for your gun.
The only bad pard about the barrel that i know about is that when a ball breaks(which they rarely do) you need to clean it out very good or your shot will be off.... a lot. Thats the only bad thing, but you get that with most barrels.
Like I said, this is a great barrel for that about of money. The aluminum makes it light, the porting makes it quiet, and the rifling gives the ball a spin for better accurcy.
Nice anodizing AND sprial porting on such a low cost barrel. Accuracy is quite good and for it's price is VERY hard to beat as a stock barrel replacement. My son's 8.5" T98 barrel stunk but the 14" Winforce made a HUGE difference in his accuracy. Barrel is well made and very smooth on the inside. Ball breaks, when they occur, are easily cleaned.
A touch louder than other barrels but for the price absolutely nothing! For rec players noise really isn't an issue with all the yelling about positions :)
All the time you get what you pay for, sometimes you get more. The Taso Winforce line is just such an item where you get more than you pay for. Excellent quality, good looks, and darn good accuracy make this a player on a budget's dream barrel. Spiral porting is a nice touch as well. No muss no fuss barrel, just a great deal at around 36 bucks.....GET YOU SOME!
