first of all i have to agree to review below mine in every respect. Ok now, the barrel is great, it's quieter, it's very accurate, and it's durable and easy cleaning. It also looks sweet.
Unfortunately this barrel does reject cheaper paint. The only paint i've found so far that does not break one of of ten(at the least)is rps allstar. But it's way too expensive. So unless you have lots of money, buy a different barrel, but for tournament level with high quality small bore paint, this barrel is excellent.
i bought the 13 inch barrel and used it with a spyder shutter. Only works with small bore paint. It's worth the cost if you get the right kind of paint. So i would not recommend this to the average player, but for tournament level, i give it a 9.
Hella-accurate, looks cool, sound is super quiet,and the rifling is a novel idea.
Good god the bore size is miniscule. 85%% of all paint will not fit this barrel and that could be a problem at field only events.
If you can find a very small paint to shoot through this barrell, and a field that will let you use the paint, this barrell is definately a great choice. If you cant use small paint, welcome to hell. Last game I played I was breaking paint maybe every fifth shot. It got to the point where squeegeeing (that's spelt wrong, I know I know) was pointless because you'd just break another in a few seconds. Bottom line, if you find small paint, it's an incredible barrell. If you cant, then DO NOT buy this barrell
This is a pretty good barrel. It's VERY VERY VERY VERY silent. It's rifled and all, and it's pretty nice. I got it at $80, and I think it was an okay buy.
Oh god, this is bad. First of all, the accuracy sucks big willys. I use a tippmann 98 and team colors paint. the accuracy is good at about up to 20 yards for me. yes, it's better than the stock barrel, but to me there are better buys. Also, the bore size is very small. Those of you that shoot diablo hellfire or team colors, this is not the barrel for you. the range sucks. If you want to snipe someone out from close range, this is the barrel for you. but how many people do that?
It's an okay barrel, the quietist one I've heard. I'm not too impressed with the range, the accuracy is about average. If I were you, I would buy a smartparts all american or dye aluminum. but hey, if you've got your heart set on it....CHANGE YOUR MIND!!! Just kidding, it's not that great, but it's not that bad.
Its is a very quiet and accurate barrel. The opposing team doesn't know what hit them. Ball breakage isn't a problem in this barrel. It adds atleast 25 ft. to my shot. You can't go wrong with a rifled bore.
In the time i have had this barrel it has been problem free.
I use a tippman pro/carbine gun with the armson stealth barrel. I use pro-ball paint. Works great. Overall these are a great combination for me so far.
Doesnt do miracles but no barrel will. Farely quite. Didn't have problems with ball breaks and one is easy enough to fix by flipping the puppy upside down, holding your hand over end of barrel and shooting. This will blow out a good deal of the paint out of the porting..not back to 100%% but works well.
Also I had read that the rifling helps preven spin.. not add top spin. The idea being a ball that doesnt spin shoots straight.
nothing realy bad other then the price tag.
A decent barrel,a little pricey for any barrel realy but I like to try out a lot of differant stuff.
Everything, the accuracy, range, ball breakage, and
cleaning. The accuracy isn't much better than my stock
barrel. The company is full of crap w/ their internally
rifled bs. If anything, the rifling hurts accuracy. The
range isn't too great, and could be a lot better.The
company says the barrel puts top sping on the ball( this
doesn't make any sense, it would make the ball shoot
shorter cuz flatlines put backspin to increase range) This
is a small bore barrel, and i used marbalizer paint. I
broke several balls (u will too). This barrel doesn't self
clean too well either. So u have to get out the old
squeegie everytime u break one. Cleaning is a pain.
I have a spyder w/ an expansion chamber and 32 degrees
venturi bolt. I got the 14 inch model.I severly regret
paying 80 dollars at the zap am open for this barrel. I
should of just thrown it away! I would rather play w/ my
stock barrel than this piece of crap! I would much rather
buy a J&J ceramic, dye, or smart parts barrel. Don't be
fooled by the companies hype about interannally rifled
barrels, my friend has a tipp 98 and a 16 stealth. He feels
the same way about his. He hates it! Please don't screw
yourself w/ this barrel
