tippmann custom 98
proteam collaspable stock
14" chrome system x one piece barrel
i've only used draxxus so i'd go with those
1. VERY VERY ACCURATE
2. really nice looking
3. very quiet
i havn't found anything wrong yet
I don't know what's wrong with redinline. i can hit a 1" fence post from about 50 feet away. My gun might be more accurate because of my stock also. I havn't broken any balls yet and i've gone though 1/2 a case of paintballs. The only problem is that it sometimes screws loose. For a barrel of its price its very dependable and worth more than the $40 that it costs.
this is a highly recommended gun on my part. its a cheap and reliable barrel
I have used stock barrels in my previous experience.
Kingman Spyder Agressor XT (Forest green)
Xtreme Enterprises 12" Barrel (Black)
Java 200 Round Loader (Black)
32 Degrees Spring Set
PMI Bigball works great - I fired almost 1,000 rounds of it through this barrel today, without a single chop or bust.
VALUE. Got it for about $25, and it's far better than my stock barrel.
Finish seems to scratch easily.
I have been back in paintball since March 2003, after being out of the game for over seven years. To get my feet wet, I bought a Spyder Agressor XT online as part of a kit. With 12oz tank, hopper, basic mask and shipping, the whole deal was around $110. The stock barrel that came with my Agressor was mediocre - but I knew that a barrel upgrade would really increase my effectiveness in the game.
I read reviews, shopped around, looked at my budget (very slim!), and selected the Xtreme Enterprises 12" one-piece barrel. At $25 including shipping, the barrel was very inexpensive. I went to the field today, apprehensive about my new barrel - was the price too good to be true? Would I be chopping balls left and right?
My fears were allayed. I shot about 900 rounds of PMI Bigball today, and did not have a single chop or bust! My accuracy is incrementally better than it was with the stock barrel, and the black actually looks kinda nice with the anodized forest-green finish of my Spyder. In tune-ups, shooting at a 6-inch target at sixty feet, I went from putting 5-6 shots out of 10 onto the target, to putting 8-9 out of 10 onto the target. All in all, I am very pleased with the purchase.
A full day of play left a single small scratch on the barrel, which concerns me a bit - but the interior of the barrel is still pristine, and that's what counts.
Let's face it - Nobody is going to put this barrel on an high-dollar marker. Why would they? If you can afford to sink $500+ into a paintball gun, you can afford to get a better barrel than the Xtreme Enterprises 12" one-piece.
But for those of you who have an entry-level marker, or one just a step or two up from entry-level, this barrel will be a nice improvement over your stock gear, at a VERY low price.
I would reccomend this barrel for price-conscious players, expecially Front Players. Front Players don't need to snipe from a great distance, but they need accuracy at short and intermediate ranges.
This barrel does the job, and your wife won't kill you for buying it!

I have used a lot of barrels, stock barrels, dye boomstick, ultralight, lapco big shot, system x 1 piece (this one) , cp 1 piece
Tippman 98 stock, Spyder Imagine with system x 1 piece and empire reloader
UM ERM maybe evil i used premium and they did terrible
It works okay when it is clean
Inacurate, bad when dirty, curve a lot
Okay. Listen carefully. I bought this barrel because it got an pretty good review in facefull. My friend whos been playing for a while told me not to and that system x's are bad. I didn't listen to him. I wish I had, this barrel is not worth 40$. It worked alright initially, and my first game I played in a tourney it was working well. However, It broke paint more than usual. I had PMI Premium and I'm not saying it's the best paint, but it's deffinatley alright paint, and the barrel shouldn't have trouble with it. Anyways... the second game i played i was playing back just like i did my first game. The only problem was instead of shooting clear across the field the barrel was making the ballz curve down. I shot out 2 of my teamates who were next to each other. At this point I almost broke the barrel right there. As the day went on the barrel only got worse. I would rather use a Tippman stock barrel than this piece. It is not terrible, but there are so many better products on the market. This barrel is maybe as good as a stock one.
This barrel is not worth 40$. This barrel would only be good if you got it for 5 or 10 $. Even in that case i might use a stock barrel.
System X 2002 Vengeance Base
System X 1 peice barrel
System X X10 Drop Forward
System X delrin Bolt quick pull
System X High Flow 2 peice regulator
Palmer Micro Rock Regulator
Palmer Quick Switch 3-way
Pure Energy 88/4500 HPA
Marbs, PMI premium's
Pretty accurate from my testing Ball breaks clean themselves out in 3 shots
Finish scratches easily, finding the right paint might be a pain.
A great barrel for the money, i got mine for 35.00 at the local paintball store. Once i found what paint worked best with it, i was knocking people off left and right with its accuracy. Im personally thinking of going with something shorter since im more of a tight tuck front player, but for the average player, its a good bang for the buck.
cheers to x-enterprises
if you going cheap, get it, you wont be dissatisfied
Spyder Compact Java 2-in-1:
-4*20 scope (just for looks)
-1 peice system x barrel (14 inches)
i just go cheap
not 2 piece
could be more quiet
Well i don't chrono in (cause i play in the woods with friends) so i don't know the fps difference to much betweeen the 12 and the 14... This is a lot better than stock though (other than that, a barrel is just a barrel to me)....I've tried boomsticks and there isn't a real big difference (to me) between them...
This things a lot better than stock...Its cheap, mine for 40 bucks, i know it is cheaper but i live in honolulu and shipping is tremendous....
If nothing else...get this thing for the looks

Are you kidding? If your so broke that this is your only barrell then who cares? You will shoot the cheapest paint you can, no matter what I write.
I have this barrell on my back up/loaner gun. My buddy just got a 98 so even though I was not using my 98, he borrowed my barrell. He loved it. Since he is broke as a joke he is probably getting this barrell, and he should. The only barrell in the same price range that I would reccomend would be the J & J Ceramic.
Are you a newb?
Do you have a loaner gun that needs a barrell?
Are you broke but dont like your stock barrell?
Well do I have a barrell for you...

-iv only used stock barrol
-iv worked with a lot of guns and i must say this barrol has got to be the quitest
-pmi piranha with full custom desighn
ne thing works
-im useing simple little zap tournament grade balls ( 30 bux gets u a box of 800) and i havent broke one ball yet
-well worth the money
-remarkable cheap for the performace u get
-very very reliable
-slows the ball down a bit
( i used the exact same barrol only a 12 inch and there was nearly a 42 fps diffrence when i put the 14 inch on the balls seemed to slow down )
-just have to tork up the velocity thats all
great barrol but, i recomend if u have money to go better. I am on a tight buget and didint wana blow to much so i bought this bad boy, im only disapointed with the fact that is slows the ball down more then i want it to ( but hey , i havent had a single ball break yet and u have to admit thats a good thing) ne way, in all
12"system X barrel (soon to be a BigShot)
Java bottom line kit
Dop 8 stage x-core
12 oz aluminum tank
It its really nice with the milling. Very prone to scratching. Really quiet. cleans itself out with 2-3 shots. Takes a while to get the right velocity , for real good accuracy. Makes your gun look really nice.
When you chop its a pain in the rump. I just squeege it out and rinse out with water. Having the right velocity is hard to find.
This is the best barrel you can get under 30. better then a progressive. I got mine for 32.50 on ebay. Once you get the right velocitys let the kil box fill.
Black Dragun Basic Blue Color
Check it: Aluminum Trigger
Soon to get Palmer Stablizer Chrome
System X barrel (obvisouly)
ACI 6 stage x-chamber which is not on..(Usless do not get one..pay more and get a regulator....)
Anything Medium Bore size.... Barrel is .689 size i think...
Its Very Very cheap... around $30 without shipping
Barrel looks nice and has a cool logo on it....
Not that many people have the barrel so it kinda cool to have
I thought it was really accurate....not as good as the AA or other ones but u have to look at the price differnce.....
Range is pretty good.. not able to cross a whole field in woods or anything but still good.... besides if u were to shoot far away most likely hit a twic or a branch in the way...
Nice and shiny... may be bad if spotted but youll be lookin cool....
Havent found anything wrong with the barrel.... nice to be a 2 piece but then it wouldnt be 30 bucks....
An awesome product for 30 bucks....
Great Accury and pretty good range...
Buy it if your short on cash or dont wanna spend lots of money on the AA or the dye...
Spyder TL Plus, 20 oz C02 Tank, PMI 200 round hopper, System X Barrel (BLACK)
PMI or Marblizers
-It is very cheap. It is under 40 bucks!!
-It is very accurate because I can hit a plastic bottle from 40 yards away!
-It is cool-looking.
-Not many people have it.
-It kicks butt in paintball games!!!
There is nothing bad about this barrel!
You must buy this awesome barrel because it is so accurate and it is kinda quiet. You will play well with this barrel is you buy it! I am glad that I bought it because it is a sweet barrel! GO and buy it alreadly to find out more cool things it can do to you!!
