16" Smart Parts Linear barrel
Double trigger kit
I found any is fine.
EDIT: Do NOT shoot fast with severe tempest paint. The shell is really brittle and broke many times in the barrel. When I shot slower, the ball didn't seem to break.
Isn't picky with paint. Rarely curves
You need to get used to the length... Sticks out. Brittle shells break inside
I found this barrel quite nice. I'm going to continue to test this barrel and compare with friends' barrels. It's not really picky with paint, and doesn't seem to curve. Great barrel for the price. I got this on sale for $30 (canadian) so shop around for this.
The only problem I've noticed now was that brittle shells break in the barrel (IF shot fast)
Shoot slowly, and you'll have no problems. I found that every 10th shot or so broke in the barrel (when I was shooting fairly fast). Amazingly, after breaking a few balls, the other shots DIDN'T curve. Although, after about 10ish breaks, my shots started to curve.
Got $40 (Canadian)? Get this barrel.

14" Linear barrel
(Soon to have a Flatline barrel and an MP5 Gas thru mag and possibly a stock)
Whitebox/Hotbox (any paint)
-Doesent clean as good as other barrels.
The Smart Parts 14" Linear Barrel is a great buy. Its only 30$ and ir performs very well. When shooting your Marker, it is very accurate with this barrel. This Barrel does not add any distance to the ball just accuracey. Im getting a Flatline instead because of the Range and accuracey. If you have the Money get a Flatine, if you dont got the cash definentaly pick up the 14" Smart Parts Linear Barrel.
Overall this is a great barrel and I reccomend picking it up if you are low on cash and need a Barrel.

I picked up this barrel for woods play and found that it was a jewel for the price. The barrel is very consistent and accurate at long distance. Found that the porting holes were a little difficult to clean but not a problem. Overall a very good barrel for the price. I picked one up for 34.50 and probably wont change it. Has a very good acceptablitly for different ball sizes rather than having to change an insert.
Good barrel for beginner to novice field or woods player
Accurate with 14" and above, almost never breaks balls
A really good barrel if your on a budget. I recommend a 14" or higher barrel. good for speedball, depending on what position you play. Same for woodsball. This barrel is really good and cheap. If you play front man, get a 12" or 14", if you play, middle, or snake, get the 14", and if you play back, get a 16". They are all the same price.
I would reccomend this product to those who need a very good, but cheap barrel.

Not too loud
Easy to find
I was using crappy paint so idk how yall will take my review, but i was shooting between 50-75 ft. and it was pretty accurate. It had a pretty good size grouping. There where only a few balls that decided to go the other way, but like i said i was shooting bad paint.

Won't clean itself
not super quiet - average
I was sick of using my brother's barrels for my viewloader so i went and found this and bought it. It was probably the best investment i made for the gun. The barrel is super accurate at close and long ranges. This is easily the best single piece barrel i have ever used, even though i would like to try the evil driver. Doesn't get much better than this for the money. It isn't super loud or anything, but it definately isn't as quiet as the progressive, but i got it for accuracy cause the viewloader is loud anyways. I was dissapointed though cause when i chopped a ball (stupid gravity feeds) the barrel needs to be swabbed or u can't even guess where the ball is going.
A very good barrel for the money.
If you are the average player looking not to spend a ton of money on an accurate barrel, look to get one of these. I am going to give it a 9 because even though it has the noise and cleaning weaknesses, the price and accuracy makes up for a lot of it. I would definately recommend this barrel.

8 inch c98 stock barrel
11 inch 98pro stock barrel
tippmann 98custom pro ACT, extreme rage 9v hopper, 16 inch smart parts linear barrel, soon a stock.
Diablo heay and Stingers work great.
Not very quite at all
A little wobbly when i screwed it in
I like this barrel for the little amount of money that it is. I am kind of dissapointed that it was just as loud than the 11 inch stock. It may be the co2, not sure. It was a accurate and I liked it. No chops because of the Anti Chop Technology though. More of a sniper barrel. If you mis though, you definetly loose the element of suprise becuase it is loud.
I picked off about 6 guys the whole time and they didn't know I was there so the accuracy makes up for the loudness by making a 3 shot kill. 1 and 2 might miss but 3 nails it.
I recommend this to the people who play woodsball and who are in between offense and mid. May be a little long for speedball so i would recommend the 12 or 14 inch for it. Great barrel.
Stinger paintballs work the best
This barrel not only looks cool, but is very accurate
The barrel looks cool and when it comes down to it, it is very accurate. With my spyder pilot this barrel is the coolest part. It works the best with stinger paintball. I have played about three games eith this barrle and i got three poelpe out at about 50 foot away. the barrel is so cool and very accurate.
I have never had problem with this barrlel i totaly recomend it
