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.
WOW! If you're thinking of getting a 60, or 70 dollar barrel, stop being a cheap ass and save the extra 30-40 dollars necessary for a boomstick. Its nice, consistent, tough, and just a damn nice barrel!

this is a great barrel but if you want to get a barrel of this quality but pay less then get a J&J two piece, just as good. but if you have a lot of money to burn then spend a little more and get a freak
Small and Medium I use Adrenalin paint. It is by far the best and a totally perfect fit for this barrel.
Accurate!! This barrel even in the 12" version that I use is so perfect. If you buy this barrel and use good paint then you can only blame yourself for missing. I have a target (trap style) that I shoot at a few times a week. In the center of it I have a 1/2" dowel I can hit it almost every time from any angle and resonable distance. When I miss I know it my fault.
Cost this barrel is by no means cheap. If you want the best you pay for the best. Face it If you spent a grand on your marker then whats an extra $105 bucks for a little insurance that you will have the best shot on the field. I use it on my tippmann. I might be considered crazy by any one that ownes a high end gun but with the setup I can shoot as accuratlly as any one else just not as fast. But it only takes one hit to win and I dont miss.
All other barrels that I have tried dont come close to this one. Finish and fit are perfect. It's like putting a muffler on your gun and makes a good shooter great. If you have the coin go and get one. Dont waste you time and money like I did buying and trying.
Lapco Autospirit, DYE Stainless, Smart Parts All American
Friend's '99 'cocker, stock w/aftermarket bolt
Small-medium, premium grade (read as: marballizer or the PMI stuff or better)
Shot well enough but, I think my Lapco out shot it. It could have just been difference in care and setup of the two markers too, dunno.
It's a status symbol. If you shoot an Angle or decked out, shiny 'cocker, you will pop a chub for this barrel I'm sure. I'd like to point out that all the guys who are gushing about this, will, in the next breath, state things like...
"the poor suck"
"get a job"
If you live at home or have a high five digit/year job, and are into the coolest things because that's what some pro team (who's sponsored I might add, so they kinda HAVE to use the products) uses, then this one is for you.
If you just want something that shoots darts. It can also be found in a few other barrels, for about, oh HALF the cost. Some even outshoot this.
I've always believed in the saying "thinking about something hard enough, makes it happen" I think it's the same with barrel accuracy "I payed so much for this thing, it's GOT to be GOOD"
ya, ok homey, you go bonzi with the chrome and me and my black 'cocker will gog you at about 60 yards while your still charging the tape.
did I mention I didn't like the poor bashing? ; ) *adjusts chip on shoulder*
02 Vertical Feed Autococker with Shocktech dropfoward, on off bottle adapter, twelve inch Dye Boomstick, Eclipse blade trigger frame
This barrel is the best and there are none that are better cept for the freak system. Best accuracy ive ever seen, best distance ive ever seen.
NOTHING! dont listen to those guys that give them bad ratings. the reason y the dye boomstick only got a 9.3 rating is because stupid people rate this barrel on PRICE. you are suppose to rate the barrel on its PERFORMANCE not price. Performance is great!
Get this barrel now and believe me, dont read anybodies that has a bad rating for it because they dont knoe what they are talkin about. Pricey? poor people suck
