Spyder TL Plus (Black)
Air America Vigaline reg (Black)
The barrel is very accurate
I've only broken a few balls in the barrel and even then after only a couple shots the barrel had cleaned itself
Durable (hasn't scrathed yet)
The chrome compliments the other silver areas on my gun
Balances out my 20 oz CO2 Tank
Th shine gives you a way in the woods but I wnt to the Army-Navy store and bought some green netting. After wrapping the barel in the net it concels it very nicely.
The weight of the barrel makes te gun front heavy if use one of my smaller tanks
Is a little expensive ($110 after shipping) but I got it as a Christmas present so it didn't hurt me at all.
Tis barrel is top of the line and it performs that way. It shots clean through breaks and more importantly does what it's ment to do. Get your paint on the badguy with the first shot.
Black Model 98 Custom (polished internals and silenced bolt)
20 ounce Atomic Energy CO2 bottle with anti-syphon (and APP Butt plate)
DYE 12" Stainless Steel Barrel
Adco Sure Shot Red Dot Sight
6 stage X-chamber
LAPCO rear velocity adjuster
empire reloader agitated hopper
Any good quality paint sized .689
lifetime warranty, accurate, quiet, and looks nice. It also balances 20 ounce tanks out.
It's heavier than most barrels and the finish can give you away in woods
great barrel assuming a good paint match (see above) DYE is top of the line, and this barrel proves it. The silver finish could give you away in rec play; however its durabilty makes it a good barrel for this.
Unfortunately they have been discontinued, so your only hope is to hunt around for any that are still left.
Expensive, but truly marvel of a barrel. DYE precision allied to the indestructibility of stainless steel. Works out nicely on my 98 custom (long marker setup, so I don't worry if I knock it during speedball.)
10 out of 10

Spyder TL+ , Dye 14 inch Stainless Steel Barrel, 12 volt Revy with Xboard, 20 oz CO2 tank.

This barrel ROCKS!!!! Its extremely accurate and quiet too!!!! Most people are intimadated by it looks. Since its stainless steel, it holds up better to changing tempratures and is very durable. Its also easy to clean.
Its stainless steel so you can be seen from a distance. Don't let this deter you, because it more than makes up in its accuracy.
Seems like many people are buying Boomsticks and other next generation barrels. I believe this barrel is just as good if not better. Also, you can't beat the price.
IF you dont use the right paint the barrel is crap. In my opinoin, the paint which work the best are Rp's and Diablo Hellfires.
If you have a piece pf crap gun but if you put this barrel on it, you can hang with the big boys. I have been playing paintball for over 4 years and in my expierence all you need is accuracy and speed. If you have those two things, then you are all set. The barrel is very accurate if you set the psi to a good speed. If you set it too low , you might as well put a non ported spyder 10' barrel on it, if its set 2 high, the paintballs will throw more of a curve then Randy Johnson.
The only thing bad about the barrel is that it is too heavy. Even though it IS aluminum, it still acts like a great barrel. It is very accurate if the psi is set correctly. Also if you break a ball then it is HELL trying to clean it all out. Its nearly impossible to clean on the field, so i reccomend bringing a extra if you got it.
Overall, the barrel is reliable with its accuracy. It is one of the most heaviest and most accurate barrel i have ever used. I recomend this to an extra step from aftermarket, this barrel is the boomsticks little brother.
If you are using the right paint for the barrel, it works like a dream. This barrel is solid, and durable. It is easy to clean, and is fairly quiet.
If you are using the wrong paint for the barrel it breaks paint left and right. This barrel seems to be very picky about paint. Once you break a ball in this barrel you had better find a squeege or you might as well call it quits. Even after using a squeege your accuracy and distance are down at least 40%%.
A decent barrel for the price. If the paint is right, It is my 1st pick over my boomstick. My reccomendation: Get this barrel, but Keep another one on hand in case you need to switch out.
weight balances gun
well....I hear a lot of people bltching about the weight of this thing, but i dont know what the problem is. Unless ur some dumb guys that puts his tank up like a foot, it really helps balancing the weight of the tank. It is also accurate, as most after-market barrels are. It looks cool too if u like the chrome look. I would definitely recomend this barrel, but am giving it a 9 because nothing is perfect.
