Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
While the ceramic is being applied teflon is injected into the pores of the aluminum, resulting in the slickest, yet most durable surface in the world. These barrels are quiet, light, and accurate. Available in 12", 14", 16", and 20" for most guns.
Product Availability 
The J&J Performance Ceramic Barrels are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.

Strengths: Lightweight, good price, shoots fairly clean, does not have excessive porting, can be ordered in custom sizes from the manufacturer, accuracy is good to very good.
Weaknesses: I've noticed the finish on the inside of the barrel seems tacky, kinda sticky like. The color will match nothing, and it only comes in one color, anodizing will not work as the ceramic in the metal will throw off the pigment and make it darker than required.
Conclusion: Used a 14" .693 on a Defiant, a .688, .689, & a .693 on an Angel LCD, a 14" .688 on a Tippmann 98, and a 12" .689 on a Defiant, while matching varying paints to them depending on bore size. It is worth the asking price, and a set of custom bores can be purchased from the manufacturer for a moderate savings. It compares well to others in its' class. I still cannot figure out why the interior finish seems to have some resistance, rather than feeling slick and smooth to the touch. I would not reccommend them over a Lapco, but for other bore sizes I might. I really was not impressed with the J&J Ceramic barrels, and would not purchase them again.

Strengths: The color is cool, works well,inexpensive, no need to squegee, just shoot the barrel clean. .It's ceramic coated!
Weaknesses: The color is not for everyone.
Conclusion: Works just as well as any other ceramic barrel on the market. Go ahead and add it to your collection if you don't already have a ceramic barrel. I have the 12" model...I think that might be the only length they come in...i could be wrong :)

Strengths: First off, I use a spyder elite and the j+j barrel I own is
the 14 incher. The barrel is very inexpensive, I got mine
for 42 dollars. It is extremely quiet against my stock
spyder barrel, and its accuracy is great.
Weaknesses: Well, I did not hate the color but it may be an issue for
people that are picky. The barrel gets scratched quite
easily, and the barrel is not the solid gold color so when
it gets scratched its leaves like a gray color. Its really
not that bad at all.
Conclusion: I liked the barrel a lot, I was very, very pleased. Again,
I used it on a spyder elite with the fourteen incher.

Strengths: The J&J Ceramic barrel is unbelievably light and quite accurate. With a good paint-to-bore fit, the barrel gave me very good accuracy -- I never found myself needing tighter groupings. The barrel venting also quiets the gun quite a bit compared to non-vented stock barrels, but of course isn't up at the same level as the extensively ported barrels. Though they are medium-bore barrels, they seem to be slightly tighter than most medium-bores (it's just a little tighter than my Bigshot, for example). This is not necessarily a bad thing -- whatever is too small for the Bigshot generally fits nicely in the J&J. (My fields are FPO, so I don't get to choose what paint to use.)
Weaknesses: Only available in one colour, so it's take-it-or-leave-it on that count. I have also read in a few places that the internal ceramic coating isn't very durable and the barrel smoothness degrades after extensive use. I have not used the barrel enough to verify or refute those reports.
Conclusion: J&J Ceramics aren't very expensive, as far as barrel prices go, and seem to be quite good. If you don't mind the colour, and don't require a whisper-quiet barrel, then I see no reason why the J&J Ceramic should not be considered.
