The DYE Ultralite barrel is a popular favorite of the top pros today. The Ultralite is chosen for its all aluminum light weight advantage. It is also a very popular custom barrel because its aluminum construction offers the ability to be anodized to match any gun color. It is made with the same precision quality that you can expect from DYE as the leader in barrel manufacturing.
The Dye Ultralite 2-Piece is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

I use the Evil paint...It works really good and is usually accurate. If not Evil, find medium bore paint
Really accurate,quiet,light,and good looking
The ultralite is a good barrel. It is very light, accurate and quiet. It also looks good on a black gun (like my b2k). IT IS A GOOD BARREL. It is also cheaper than the boomstik but they shoot just about the same. It is good for all types of players.
Try it out if you got da money. Its REALLY accurate and quiet. Go buy it

This barrel is on par with a freak. I bought this for my Spyder to replace my Progressive and it works very well for me, a mid-back player. The accuracy is superb, even at the range I shoot. The barrel is also freaking QUIET! I'm shooting a loud Spyder with this, and it sounds almost llike a cocker.
Semi-expensive, aluminum barrel can scratch pretty easily
I bought my 98 Custom after a month into the sport of paintball; I had been doing ok with a friend's pump-Tigershark II but I needed something that I could really work with. Tippmann was the right choice, but after a while I realized that most of my friends had more range and accuracy...and I wanted that range and accuracy.
So I shopped around on the Internet and read reviews all night, and soon made my decision. My friend had pushed me to buy the Dye Boomstick, but I had read it was pretty heavy for a barrel, so I chose the Ultralight over it.
And its name heald true. The Ultralight is ultralight. I picked up my friend's Spyder the other day and could definately feel the difference in weight between the two markers. And the accuracy of the Ultralight is awesome. I can pick people off with ease with some range at that.
I would definately reccomend this product if you have a 98 Custom. I don't know what it is like with other markers, but I am fully and completely satisfied with it.

Looks great on a cocker :)
Not as strong as many other barrels, obviously. Just be careful.
I've tried several barrels and found the DYE ultralite to perform outstandingly. I tested this barrel and the others from a 50 foot distance, shooting at a 20 gallon bucket. The ultralite tended to put the balls more in a clustered, specific area, and it did well in not producing stray balls. I got more "balls ontop of balls" with this barrel than any other, usually in bursts of 4 balls. The DYE stainless did not shoot well for me as compared to the ultralite, which doesn't make much sense because it's the same bore/honing/length. This is a great barrel and DYE did a great job in designing it.
Very good product. If you can try to get it at a local paint store used, then go for it. It is a little pricey, but even if you do buy it new, it is a great deal. In all honesty, you should shoot every barrel before you purchase it, some people tend to get different results with different guns/paint. I say guns because of how good the gun consistency is. That will affect your accuracy/precision. Overall, this barrel performs with the best.

Too small of a bore
Only Higher priced works
I really did like this Barrel, back when i was always buying Premium, but my local Paintball store raised the price for a case, so i started buying cheaper paint. Ever since i haven't had a very good game where i don't break a ball. Don't get me wrong, it's a very good barrel, but the bore size is too small, so i bought a teardrop and have had a much better experience.
I give it a 7 cuz it's only good for RPS paint and other consistantly round and sized paintballs.

Lots of Ports to Clean. Thats it
I feel that this is one of the best barrels i have ever used. It is perfect for the me and i would suggest everybody go and buy one. An ther fact it looks really cool on an all black gun. for the price the ultra lite is sweet. i use a 12 inch and it is perfect fot the games i play in.
If you need a better barrel, i would suggest buying this. No really, go and buy one now.
This barrel is extremely light, and has great accuracy
This barrel is much better than any other barrel. It is just as accurate as the Dye Boomstick, but at one third of the weight. The only other barrel that can compare to it would have to be the Smart Parts All-American. I would discourage the purchase of the Freak barrel kit and stick to the basics, this barrel is just as accurate with half the troubles of the Freak
This is a great barrel, I highly reccomend it to any and all players
THIS IS THE BEST BARREL EVER. I originally had a flatline but decided I needed a different barrel. After much deliberation I decided on the Ultralight. It was way more accurate than the stock barrel or the flatline. It gets good distance for a normal barrel and it is very quiet. This barrel is the best buy.
Anyone who needs a new barrel for any gun should look at DYE. They make the best barrels for any gun. They are a little expensive but its worth it
This barrel is VERY accurate! Great improvement over the stock barrel (obviously). Never broke a paintball in the barrel. VERY high quality and craftmanship. Looks awesome too! I used to own a 14" ONE-piece Ultralite on my 98 custom, and as far as accuracy they are the same...the TWO-piece design does not affect performance at all. The two pieces are perfectly matched...again, top notch quality!
I highly recommend this barrel. Best barrel in the price range!
~Aluminium can be annodized.
~DYE will be selling a Boomy Kit Soon.
~Two Piece Design + 'Cocker = Headache.
Over all, this barrel rocks. It seems to be almost exactly like the regular DYE boomsticks, only a lot lighter.
~Weight. All aluminium construction = light weight.
~All Aluminium construction can be annodized.
~DYE will be selling a UL Boomy Kit Soon.
~Price. As I said with the regular DYE Boomstick, it is expensive. This is even more so for the UL ... considering its made of a cheaper material. (Aluminium)
~Two Piece Design + 'Cocker = Headache. Because of a 'Cockers front block, it can be a pain to take the back section of this barrel off.
This barrel carrys on the tradition of kick arse DYE barrels. In fact, the only reason I got rid of mine was because the chrome back of the regular boomy matched my cocker better. :oP
