Outkast Cocker (about to be an A-5!), 3000psi nitro tank, Eggy 3
i use dusk, any higher end paint
Very Accurate!!, Quiet
I've been using this barrel for a while now, and i love it! This thing really quieted down my old silver bullet, it also made it a hell of a lot more accurate! I mainly use dusk with it, but scorch and stryker work great with it, too.This product is awesome.
I reccomend this product to anyone....its accurate, quiet, and cheap...
I just used the stock Tippmann barrel...and it doesn't even come close.
I use a 14" Smart Parts Tear Drop on my Tippmann model 98. I just recently added a custom made drop forward.
Just about any paint...I use Zap.
Shoots so accurately.
Only real weakness is playing in the rain.
I've had no complaints with this barrel...I recommend this barrel to anyone who uses a stock barrel...or wants a low maintenance barrel that is cheap in price...I got mine for $30 on Ebay and that was with shipping. I've used the Tear Drop for long enough to know it rocks.
Buy it if you want an awesome accurate barrel...especially if you're using something stock.

Well i ordered this barrel a few weeks ago and i just had a chance to test it.
This barrel was EXTREMELY accurate. It may be my gun but out of a hopper i had one chop. On Firstcall and Order Paintball.com both had this barrel for $14. This barrel is also extremely light. In my experience with this barrel i had no problems.
Stock barrel, 2 piece aci barrel, warpigs 16inch and teardrop is much better.

haven't found the best yet. maybe x-ball.
Very accurate and very cheap
Kinda hard to clean.
Well i bought this barrel for like 25 dollars and it is prolly the best investment i've made on my gun. it is very accurate and a little quiter. good looks and good brand. smart parts. thats all i can say...............................so buy it for sure. good good good good good good good.
Buy it if you like paintball and aren't into it enough for a kit.
i would put this on any gun and it would shoot right on the dot from over 50 ft away. Also its pretty easy to clean out when chopped paint. i got it for 40 dollars i think it was a huge bargin compared to anything. over all its a great barrel.
Tippmann 98 custom
Egg 2 with camo cover
2 finger trigger
Smart parts teardrop 14 inch barrel
Nelsons are the best with this barrel

Similar Products Used:
16" J&J Full Tilt Ceramic-much better
Tippman 98' custom
Expensive, and breaks balls consistantly
I bought a 12" for my 98' because I thought that it would help in accuracy. I was wrong, I played with it for a few months then switched back to the stock 8.5" barrel because it was just as accurate but without breaks. This is the last barrel by this brand that I will buy because it was a waste of money and not worth the caust.
The only time this barrel helped was when I could shoot around bushes due to balls breaking in it constantly.
If you want a new barrel go for it but don't buy this one. It will put a new "twist" on you game. Save your money or buy something better

Looks: The barrel looks nice. It's a glossy black or silver with this cool flare at the end. The spiral porting is ok looking too.
Porting: In essence, the Teardrop is a progressive barrel with diagonally drilled porting. It works quite well to quiet the marker, but impossible to clean.
Self-cleaning: If you chop a ball, it's all over. The diagonal porting is almost impossible to clean out. I used this barrel on my spyder, and when I chopped, the barrel looked like a wasp because of all the yellow paint in the porting. The only way I got it all cleaned out is by spraying it with the hose on my sink.
Accuracy: The accuracy isn't bad, but the rifling and spiral porting don't actually help. Those are more for advertisement.
It's a good barrel for begginers, but you would be better off with a J&J or CP 1-piece if you are new.

32 degrees gravity hopper
20 ounce co2
cannot shoot cheap paint
Not accurate if shot one at a time.
i used this barrel at a riends house for a day because he had this extra. the weight of this barrel is perfect not heavy, but not too light. the price of this barrel is also perfect at $35.00. This barrel wasnt that accurate when shot one at a time but when shot while walking the trigger i was very surprised its almost pin straight. I was hitting people in the back bunker without a second thought.
Because of the price and how accurate this is when being walked its worth every cent you bought it for. If your looking for a barrel then definitely go for it!
Indian Creek B2K 14" freak, cp reg, clamping feed neck
Piranah GTI E-Force 14" teardrop
Anything thats decent quality
Cheap, Realitivly quiet
Can be inaccurate at times
This barrel is a very nice barrel for a beginner paintballer who doesnt have alot of money. My first upgrade to my first gun was a teardrop barrel. You know this barrel is a quality barrel coming out of one of the best manufactuers in paintball. This improves the accuracy of your gun dramatically. I suggest this barrel to anyone who is using a gun that is cheaper than $200 dollars.
Of course this barrel is not a 10 but it is a very good product for the price, If you do not want to buy a barrel that is more expensive then your gun then i highly recomend this or the progressive.
