Review: This barrel suprised me. I didn't think the straight rifled grooves would perform as well as they did. I had some friends using the same barrel and 1 it didn't work well for. He said he wasn't getting any accuracy, but for the rest it performed well.
Conclusion: I think it's a great barrel. If you want a barrel to put the paintball where you want it, this is it. Worked wonders for me.

Armson Stealth - harder to clean. Is much more picky about paint.
Dye Boomstick - Very simular. Easier to clean. Heavier.

Paintballs:
Marbs, The new Premium was okay That is all I have put through it.
Strengths: Very accurate, almost as accurate as the Stealth. It has different rifling than the Stealth. It's two piece so you can change your length if you want to. Easier to clean than the stealth.
Weaknesses: It is hard to get paint out of the porting. Still pretty picky with paint. If you use Big Ball, or Brass Eagle you will have problems....but I think that the problems are more the paint than this barrel. The few times I have gotten paint in my barrel it was the paint.( The marbs that I used were rather deformed...I think it was a humidity problem where they had them stored. Every other time that I used Marbs I had not problems.)
Conclusion: All arount a great barrel. It has taken up a fairly permanent home on my Bushmaster. In my opinion it mixes the advantages of the Stealth with the advantages of the Boomstick. I have had good luck with it thus far. I'm going to give it a nine, because the cleaning problems.

Products Used:
I have used Armson Stealth 10", 13", 16", DYE Boomstick, Flatline Barrel, and My Tippmann Stock Barrel (Yuck!)
Marker Setup: I have a Tippmann 98 Custom with a CAR-15 Stock, Low-Pressure Kit, 86ci Nitrogen Tank, at 4500psi, A Russian Military Scope made in Kazan, 15x, and an expansion chamber\remote.

Paintballs:
I recommend RP Scherer Premium, or, if you have enough lemons, Marbellizer.
Strengths: Hella accurate, shoots almost as far as the Flatline, VERY cool looking, and, if you take the front part off and shoot, it makes a really loud noise and the newbies think it is a 50 caliber or something going off. I painted mine in camo colors, and it looks GREAT!
Weaknesses: Hard to clean, but I have a tip: Take your sqeegee, run it through a few times, and then do this: Take a normal metal rod, much smaller than barrel diameter, but large enough to not bend in barrel. Next, tie an old rag to the ndo of the stick, and you can use it as a squeegee. This thing can clean the annoying little ports and grooves.
Conclusion: This is a kick-ass barrel, but you need to get used to it as you would get used to a real rifle. It acts in its own way, and you must "be friends" with the barrel before playing. Get t know how it works.

i used a smart parts big daddy barrel, and freak barrel system. those were the only two that came close to beating it. actually the freak is better but it is a consederably more money too.
Marker Setup: the gun i use it with is my bob long. i use the big daddy with my bush and the freak with my cocker.
Recommended
Paintballs:
i use marbs. but any premium paint will probly work
Strengths: it looks sweet, its light, it gives the ball topspin, it is easy to clean because its a two peice.
Weaknesses: once i bought brass eagle balls to try it out and it chopped all of them. it also chops midnight, but not nearly as bad. other than using premium paint, thats all.
Conclusion: its a really good barrel i'd give it a 8/10
