Size sometimes gets in the way of moving through the brush
i first bought my tippmann 98 c for $75 off a guy at my work, no knowing that the ball latch was missing, once i got the latch i noticed the lack of accuracy with the stock barrel, so i went down to my local pro shop and saw the larger than life barrel on the wall. at first the guy in the store reccomended the 14" barrel but said if i perfer sniping to go with the 20", so i picked it up for an equal $75 [Canadian Dollars], and since i have sniped every poor sucker in my way
i would reccomend this for woodsball, scenerio play, or anyone who just loves the look on the other players faces when you show up with a barrel bigger than a honda civic.
and did i mention the ACCURACY FACTOR!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?1?
15" Proto Barrell- much better porting and bore makes much better barell
Tippman Custom Pro- with proto barell, empire auto feed hopper, Tapco folding stock
I play with field paint and chronic as well as nightmare and evil.
I got this barrell because it looked nasty, i thought i was gonna rape everybody because i had been buying accesories to mod my gun to format a sniper style.
First off when i would run around with my gun and try to kneel or crouch i was always plugging my barell into the ground, second when i had to run through brush or low branches i would get snagged. and third if you break a ball there is no squeege on earth that can clean it. i bought a 20 gauge cun rod and cleaning head as a squeege.
One night while playing a night game at the local corn maze i broke a ball and i didint realize it so i kept shooting and my barrells coated in busted paint. I couldnt find anything to clean the frozen paint nobody could find a squeege to clean it, so i stuck it in my cars tailpipe to loosen the frozen paint then took it down to the icy river to rinse it.
i know youre probably thinking that you can bend the laws of the universe and physics to make this barell work for you but you cant. This barell takes more gas to push a ball out of the gun, it bore is too big so theres no real gripping the paintball its bouncing around in the barell. in retrospect it was my fault for buying the barell just because it looked cool i should have known better.
Looks cool but im sure you can find a better barell.

Does not help performance at ALL!!! Bends.... Way too long.... Wastes gas
This barrel does not do a thing in performance in any way at all. I'm not sure on the bore size, but I am for certain that when you put a .68 paintball in the barrel it rolls out with plenty of room to spare. The porting also keeps the barrel from saving any air at all to help in the range aspects. I thought it would be interesting to see if a 20" barrel could out range a 8" barrel. Nothing could be further from the truth. The 20" may have shot a foot or so further but that can't even for certain. On top of all this, the barrel is very easy to flex so I can't imagine that that could help in accuracy....... Save your money and buy a nice barrel...... This thing is garbage!!!
Do not buy! Huge waste of money, I guarantee you will be disapointed if you purchase.
All american barrel
Pure energy 48ci 3000 psi
anything over 40$ is usally good
I would not get this barrel because of the lenghth is way to long and they only have one size.the accuracy and distance are good but it is realy hard to play with.if you are playing woodsball i use to hit trees bushes all the time and it got realy hard to keep the barrel in the bunker thats why i gave this product a 6

My friend has this barrel on his A-5 and I have to say its pretty impressive. Accuracy is great and so is noise. However because its so long it uses lots o gas. My friend is conservative and he still runs out of air before the trigger happy people. As far as i'm concerned you should just save for a little bit longer and buy the opsgear 18in fluted sniper barrel. Its the best barrel for accuracy and its only 80 dollars.
Save up and get the fluted barrel. But if you have a smarts parts fetish then go ahead.
