The Boomstick is the flagship of the Dye barrel line. This is the most widely desired barrel in the paintball industry. The Boomstick is built from gun drilled surgical grade 303 stainless steel and an aircraft grade 6061 T6 aluminum. All DYE barrels are honed to a 6 micron surface finish, giving you the smoothest and straightest barrel surface on the market. The precision fit of the aluminum front combined with the stainless steel back provides one of the best shooting barrels in the world. The Boomstick is the most common barrel used by professional players worldwide.
The Dye Boomstick Barrels are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
-the silver (i prefer all black)
-EXPENSIVE (98 bucks on Paintball wizard!)
The barrel its self is badass, its a bit pricey but what the hell! Its very accurate and very quiet (sweeet sound) its got some good distance too. its got some decent amount of porting... its a two-piece so its fairly easy to clean... really nice finish through-out the barrel... i am glad i got the barrel, but i expected a little more from it considering the price and all... i read lots of reviews b 4 i got it, there were some horrible reviews and there were some great reviews.... well here is another great review!
Well just get the barrel if you are willing to spend the money. Is it worth the money?>No not really but if your not to cheap, just get it. i was pretty happy with it but i was expecting it to be INSANE for the money they wanted... The polished finish inside the barrel is blinding (REALLY SMOOTH) this makes it pretty DAM accurate!

Accuracy is pretty good and if not for the action of the autococker you wouldnt hear it at all. So go with the 12" or greater and you are getting a built in silencer for the cocker. I got mine in an auction lot so it was about 70 bucks. Thats a pretty fair price for a consistent and quiet barrel.
Usually you get what you pay for and this is true with the boomstick. Just continue to lobby with dye to drop the price a little. I really recommend the aluminum which is lower in price and more accurate with marbs.
I got the 16" Dye Boomstick.... I should of got the 14. Makes it to hard to move from side to side of the bunker.... It makes my gun a lot more accurate. Overall it is a good buy and you won't regret your purchase of this amazing barrel!
Trust me get it... You WILL NOT REGRET you decison! Get it in 14 inch though!

Read the review below.
Many people complain about the price of a dye barrel but as the old saying goes you get what you pay for.
This is (IMHO) the best barrel that money can buy. The accuracy is unrivalled by any other barrel or barrel system. THIS IS THE MOST ACCURATE BARREL ON THE MARKET TODAY AND THIS IS ALL THAT MATTERS. With its high polished stainless back and aluminum front you really do get the best of both worlds. The inside of the stainless back can be polished until it has a mirror finish and with a bit of Rain-X there is absolutely no problem with cleaning a break, just invert your gun and fire. Dye's are the only barrels that I've found this to work on. Some people say that the stainless backs are to heavy and they recommend a Titanium Boomstick. Remember though that the Ti is almost double the cost of a standard Boomer. So if you're concerned about weight and price try an Ultralight. These are almost as accurate as the Boomstick and half the weight. I say almost becuase I feel that the anodized aluminum back just can't hold a polish job like the stainless.
So in conclussion. If you really want your moneys worth out of a barrel and accuracey is a concern I recommend a Dye Boomstick.
Personally I won't shoot anything else.
5000psi 88ci pure energy nitro
18" dye boomstick
230 rnd hopper
medium grade and up
no cheap 30$ for 2000 paint
acurate, relativley quiet, 2 piece, black tip
chrome back, expensive
This barrel is the best. A barrel kit might be better but i dont like those. The chrome back may look cool but its too easily seen. I got an 18" and it rocks, just gets in the way sometimes. Im not sure if this is good for speed ball cuz im a hardcore woods baller where it matters how accurate you are and the size of the gun doesnt matter.
If you have the money, buy it. If you dont, borrow some and buy it.
98 custom, 16 in dye boomstick, double trig, 20 oz co2, 200 round hopper
RPS Premium or Marbs
-great for tournament or woods play
-chops cheap paintballs
-have to use the best paint
The best barrel i have ever used besides a flatline. More accurate than the dye ultralite. Its a heavy barrel but it is very quiet. If you buy cheap paintballs, you are going to need a good squegee. During the first 10 seconds of the second game i played with this gun, i shot a kit in the stomach from 75 feet away. During the first minute of the game, i shot another kid in the mask from 60 feet away. The most accurate barrel that dye has made next to the stainless steel boomstick.
I recomend this to anyone who is looking for an ausome barrel. Works great on the 98 custom and looks ausome

Accurate, looks awesome, quiet, no break
the ss back is a lil heavy but not bad
This barrel is awesome. After shooting 5-10 balls in a row it looks more like a huge splat than a grouping. I have c98 and it is really loud with a stock barrel. I put this thing on and all you could hear was the action in the gun moving. It looks so awesome on any gun too. Its expensive but well worth the 100 dollars. Dont shoot cheap paint through it either. Spend the money and get some decent paint like evils. I put 2 cases and broke 2 balls through it.
Go out and get this barrel even though it is a lil expensive. It will improve your accuracy a ton, This barrel is amazing!
this barrel is amazingly accurate, I usually come within an inch of my target if i didn't hit it, it is quiet and a tough barrel, it is a bit pricey but if you are die hard and want something worth your money get this becuase it is a Beast of a Barrel, it is a little heavy but if you have a 20OZ. of CO2 it will be balanced, great with the E-99, By if you are willing to get the best out there
Buy this barrel if you are willing to spend the money becuase it is by far the best.

This is a nice barrel. IMHO its the best non-system barrel on the market. Its very expensive, but its worth it. Lots of pros use these barrels on their guns. Its glued together so that it is always perfectly aligned, so you have the best accuracy 24/7. It has a stainless-steel back which is very heavy. But it balances out if you have a small steel tank.
Its a great barrel. See review. 10/10 for non system barrels.
