nothing can compare but ive used an AA, new style teardrop, J&J ceramic, dye excel and a titainium boomstik the next time i go out
spyder compact java edition with a reversed lapco drop forward (tank in the opposite direction of a normal bottom line 32* sniper barrel
tippmann m98 with lapco barrel adapter and a spyder threaded 32* sniper barrel
pmi super swirl or 32* team colors when super swirl is not avalable
the swirl works best i have used over 20,000 rounds of it and none have busted (seriously i am not exaderating)
this barrel is extreamly accurate i have sniped so many people using this barrel most from 40+ yards away
very quite while snipin you can shoot someone and they not know where you are
very good with paint the only thing it ever busted was an egg shaped vl ball
the range is amazing my friends and i have built a gigantic field with a house in the middle and we play an hour long attack and defend game and you can see the people 70 yards away and nail them before five mins are up
the only thing i have ever noticed that would be a problem is the shinyness on the silver and some on the black
but you can fix that by putting camoflauge duct tape on it
this barrel is amazing
i would recomend it to everyone no matter what position they play
this is a $70 barrel
GET THIS BARREL
10 out of 10

- length (M98 with collapsible stock fully extended, my gun is 36.5 inches long)
If you notice all the bad reviews, there were not M98's, apparently this barrel was made for that gun. It's a rec-ball barrel (what goods a sniper in a 30-second tourney game?). Everywhere I play people always check out the barrel.
I would love to see a side-by-side comparison with the Lapco BigShot, non-SS. All pro barrel comparisons agree that 12 to 16 inches perform the about the same. Like I said my gun is a little to long already so I may switch to the Big Shot.
You HAVE to match good paint. I always use PMI Premium. I was also recommended Diablo. If I break a ball during play, it's because of trying to fire to fast.
Check www.m98center.com gallery for "nanoc's 98" for a picture.
Hey its me TinTin! Now that Ive used the barrel it really does its purpose and with flying colors! Please ignore that review earlier by me. This barrel is very good for snipers queits the gun a lot and is fricken accurate for the p[rice. The only barrel I like better is the windforce which in my oppinion is awesome but still this barrel is tight!
Chops paint with the first few times u use it. Reccomendation: Dont quit on it keep shootin it literally polishes itself! It gets better and better with every shot I shot one guy 6 times in 1 game from like 250ft away!!! I am a sniper for my team and this barrel is either the best or one of the best out there! Im not a huge fan of 32degrees but this barrel is awesome!
If your thinking of getting this barrel get it if you are into sniping! Quiet, Range, Accuracy, Overal great barrel! I was thinking of getting this or the flatline and decided to get both this is a bit better than the flatline and easy to clean and theirs no backspin so no tricky shots with this papa! Get this barrel if ur a sniper! 99.9%% backing on this bad boy!
more ball breaks than my stock barrel on my 98 custom. its more accurate, i havent really noticed a range diffenece. i also have an x chamber on my gun. i think the ball breaks were just cause of these crap paint my friend ended up giving away cause he didnt like it lol. at first i thought it was perfect, when i tested it out it was great more accurate everything i wanted. but after some use it curves alot and i take really good care of it,
overall its good, but like it curves and i have to keep changing my velocity to fix it, it the only thing that seems to work. i would have rather bought a better barrel, it doesnt work well with 32 degrees paint even tho its a 32 degrees barrel, that crap makes no sense......well its at least better than my stock barrel
-doesn't do anything that I thought it would
There was one review where the guy said he feels sorry for the sucker that buys this barrel. Everyone else gave it a 10, and went on and on how great it was. I'm with that guy. This barrel sucks! Don't waste your time, spend your money on something else. You'll be happy you did. Trust Me!
