Pcs us 5 with 14 inch linear barrel A5 saw stock and cp drop forward
It doesnt matter to me what pain use use mid grade is good.
Its straight and a cheap barrel
Its hard to clean because its one peice.
When i bought this barrel i was suppose to get a 16 inch freak or about 99 bux so i go to pick up my freak and then the store ordered the wrong threads andi would have to wait 2 weeks so i was checking out and i seen the linear for 40 bucks so i bought it the only difference is its once peice but i find 2 peice has no real difference. I shot a hopper round 200 ball out of it no breaks and all really really straight. its a much better upgrade from my 9 inch.
If you dont want to spend a whole lot of money on a barrel this one is for you!!!

The barrel is durable cheap in comparison to other barrels.
The 16" is hard to clean.
i thought the barrel was very good for it's price. I paid around $40 CAN for it. Works decently after chops and it served me well when paint balling. It was accurate and looked very nice on my gun because of the dust finish. It shot a lot better than the stock barrel and is comparable to the teardrop and progressive.
The linear was very good when your comparing price for quality. if you want to upgrade your gun's stock barrel for less than $50 to a decent working barrel, you should choose the linear. definitely better than the stock barrel and comparable with the progressive.
-Cheap ($30 off ebay w/shipping)
-Makes your gun look nice
-Less accurate than more expensive alternatives
-Doesn't Shoot through chops very well
I recommend this barrel to anyone unhappy with their stock barrel looking for a good aftermarket barrel. It is more accurate and generally superior to the custom 98 stock barrel. I had to choose between a SP Linear and a cp one piece. Among those I selected the linear because I heard that they were fairly similar performance wise, yet I found the linear barrel new for considerably cheaper than the custom products barrel. This barrel is a $30 upgrade that anyone still using an inferior stock barrel should upgrade to.
The linear is not the best barrel. It can't be adapted to different bore sizes like an expensive barrel kit or do anything fancy, but it increases accuracy cheaply which is why I bought it and why I like it.

I shot Diablo's for the first go around with this barrel. Then just to see what its really made of, I shot 2 year old Tactical Performance balls, which some were warped. Not one ball broke through some 2000 balls that day.
I have yet to come across any.
I bought this barrel on an impulse seeing how I originally was eying the Flatline barrel for my 98C. I saw the price of this barrel and went with it instead. Though its no Flatline, it is definitely better then the stock 8" barrel for the 98C. Anyone who uses a stock 98C or has heard one on the fields will tell you it has a significant ping, and is somewhat louder than other markers. I am a woodsball player. This barrel reduced the noise level, and with a purchase of a Rocket Cock bolt cover, noise from the 98C should be greatly reduced.
I'd recommend this barrel to anyone who doesn't have a whole lot of dough and who is looking for a reasonably priced all around accurate one peice barrel.

Well, im not sure. Ive heard it doesnt clean well but never chopped
Alright, I got this barrel cheap and new. I used it for like 2 weeks and it was amazing. it was perfectly straight and didnt cause me to get hit when they heard my gun go BLAM! because of the barrel I had. I used to use the stock barrel from my PMI(read my review) But i decided i needed to switch when it took a hopper load to hit one guy AND THAT ONE DIDNT BREAK! anyways this is a great barrel i paid 35 bucks for it and i love it.

Be careful when shooting......doesn't shoot through breaks very good
I have seen alot of people using this barrel and it looked pretty good so I went to a local paintball store and pick me up one. About two weeks later I had my first playing experience with the barrel, I have it on my Imagine and my revolution hopper was currently out of commission so i broke a ball, i shot one right after it and it went way left so I shot a few more and it somewhat corrected itself but still did not shoot to its full potential until after the game when I squeegeed it out.
EDIT:After about 6 months I to this day am still happy with my Linear 14 incher it has never let me down in the field. Just make sure that yu have a squegee with you.
All in all it is a nice barrel. I would suggest it to people with mechanical guns or people with a working electro hopper so you wont have to shoot through breaks.

Ths barrel is very accurate and is a nice medium sized bore. However the barrelis not good at self cleaning t all so you should probably bring a squegee on to the field. Seriously your balls willcurve like no other if you don't clean the barrel. The porting can also get hard to clean out.

I love this barrel it was my 3rd overall barrel and i love it it is very accurate with i hit the target 1/10 times this barrel i hit it 9/10 times so it is alot more accurate it is made of ceramic so it is a little heavy but not as heavy as the all american and it is vented well so it is very quiet

inside of barrel is very slick
I just got this a while back for only $30, so as you can imagine I was very excited about the price. It looks awesome on my custom pro e. I haven't chopped one ball yet out of about 900 rounds. It quieted my gun down a bit, so that's always a plus. I was shooting at a 4x4 fencepost and a couple of cows and it seems like the paint always ends up right around the same place. I also noticed that the inside of the barrel is very slippery, so that probably helps with speed. At first it was a little awkward having such a long a barrel on such a long gun, but i got used to it and it feels really balanced now. Great upgrade for tippys.
I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a good, solid performing barrel at a good, solid price.
