Review: this damn barrel shoots better than my 16 inch terminator barrel, more accurate, better range, i didnt have any breaks at all through about 1000 balls, they were cheap $40/case balls too and it looks really nice on my gun, the only drawback is that it's loud as hell.

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS BARREL!!!

Conclusion: buy this barrel wether you play woodsball or speedball, you might look at it and say it's too short it wont be accurate etc, but all the myths and stuff are all wrong when it comes to this barrel

Paintballs:
any larger bore
Strengths: short size, nice machining. Good customer support.
Weaknesses: range is far too short.
Review: this barrel is an interresting novelty. It is too loud and too expensive. The range (as you might expect from a 5 inch barrel) is lousy, however all the reviews i read made it sound like it would shoot from here to the moon, accurately. It is accurate out to about 25 feet. We play a 20-foot rule so that is moot. I was very dissapointed, however, the customer support is great and they had no probs taking it back.
Conclusion: don't buy it unless all you do is bunker people!

Products Used:
None this good.
Marker Setup: 1. Tippmann 98 Custom, w/ x-Short Barrel
Recommended
Paintballs:
32 Degrees Team Colors but any paint will work
Strengths: Low Profile, accurate, almost as much range as a Flatline, cheap
Weaknesses: Takes alot of adjusting to get the velocity up. So check it with a chrono.
Review: I've gone through over 6000 rounds with this barrel and have not popped one yet. Not even while playing in 13 degree weather in the snow. This barrel is very accurate, short and has good range. One trait that can either be good or bad is that it is extremely loud. But it does have a bit of intimidation and can buy you a couple of seconds. The grouping at 100' is very tight. It has no problem with rapid fire that I have noticed. Not the barrel for you though if you want to stay silent. great for speedball do to the shortness. But it is hard to get the velocity up. Over all though it is a great barrel and is well worth the money.
Conclusion: It is a great barrel you can get for 35$

Products Used:

Marker Setup: Mokal Fokus, Mokal Drop Forward, Mokal Expansion Chamber, 20oz. CO2, X-Short Barrel, 16in. CP One Piece, BP-USA Combat Folding Stock
Strengths: It's short, accurate, not loud at all, and no loss in range. Deffinately a "sleeper" barrel
Weaknesses: Not many color choices, but who cared about that?
Conclusion: This past saturday I particapated in my high schools paintball tournament, and I played using my X-Short barrel. When people first saw it they laughed, but once they went up against it they were stupified, and I was grinning ear to ear at their faces when each of them found out who eliminated them. After I played the questions started flying, "Where did you get that?", "How much did you pay for it?", "Are you selling it?", "Can I test it out?". If you are looking for a tool for embarassment i would deffinately suggest getting this barrel. I was lucky enough to get this barrel for $25.50 on Ebay, and that price is with shipping.

Paintballs:
I found that RPS paintballs work very well with this marker. I would play a couple days before a break!
Strengths: You wouldn't believe the sharp shooting you can do with such a small barrel! I would of never predicted in all of my life that at the end of the game i would be the only one not hit by a paintball because I was the one spraying the furry at my fellow enemies and hitting them. Great for turning corner sharply, light and low profile. Packs a big punch for such a small barrel. ( Don't let the size fool you)
Weaknesses: I would say the only bad thing is that they are a little hard to find.
Conclusion: Awesome barrel for your money. Buy it you'll be Happy. Incredible range, very low ball breakage, and will keep you in the game hunting longer becuase you will be shooting at you enemies at such a low profile! You will be amazed at what you see in this barrel!!
