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.
The J&J Performance Ceramic Barrels are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.
You can get this barrel for 35 bucks and it is totally worth it.
THis is a quiet and extremely light barrel and can reduce the sound of your gun. The barrel is really slick and inside. I have been using draxxus midnight and, midevil and i havent broke a ball yet.this Barrel can shoot well with any balls. If a ball does break the nect ball cleans the broken ball right out of the barrel
Quiets the gun down
Self-Cleaning (It works!!!)
This barrel is a great barrel for the money and for beginner to intermediate players. It is two steps up over my stock barrel. I tested 500 PMI Premiums from 80 feet and all of them are within a 8 inch spread. I also noticed that the barrel quiets my extremely loud Tippmannn down quite a bit.
I recommend this barrel because it is available for a good price and is accurate.
12 oz/ 20 ox co2
check it feed neck
32 degrees exp chamber
sadly i have found it to be a rather paint sensitive barrel
I prefer using Draxxus Midnights(grey shell with pinkfill)-looks tight when it hits people
Feels delicate but its rather tough
I got this barrel because it reviewed very well and my money was burning a hole in my pockets. I am not a dumb buyer so I did my research and this barrel impressed me. Now that I am used to it I am very glad that i bought it. Its accuracy is great as long as theres no wind but wind screws up everything anyway. I hit my cousin twice at around 75 YARDS away in the woods. And this was in about 6 shots. This is a great barrel for those who dont want to be left behind in technology but still want to go to college. All in all it is the best barrel for its price and I highly recomend it.
This is a piece of equiptment that you will never ask yourself why you bought it.

I really love this barrel. Get it any day. Mine looks different then the one in the picture(Better). This barrel has most things you would want(see strengths). With my tippman I can get some one with just their hopper or their head showing. It is also nice that it shoots consistently. You can shoot twice without moving the gun and hit the same place twice. Also If it breaks a ball(rare) then you can just flip you gun upside-down and fire a few shots to clear out the breakage.
This is a really good mid budget barrel. Get it it if you cant afford a freak or boomstick.
Tippmann 98 Custom, J&J Ceramic, and more upgrades comin'
I dont know, i used some 6 month old paint, workrd perfect.
Very light, cleans out easy, looks good, lots of accuracy
none so far
This is a great barrel for your 98c. It was my first upgrade on my gun, and oh it was a good one. The first time i used it, i was using 6 month old paint. I was sitting 50 feet away from a 2 inch thick pole. My first shot, i hit. The second shot i hit. I hit 10 times in arrow. I would have never been able to hit it with my stock barrel. I was so happy. It was worth th 40 bucks a paid for at a local dealer.
I recommend this barrel to anybody that owns a tippmann. It shoots strait for a very low price. I cant wauit to get it out on the feild.

flatline ( good range, decent accuracy,
SP progressive (close comparison, J&J a lil better)
ultralite ( good with a cocker, havnt used it with a 98)
GTA 14 in Sniper ( terrible barrel gets pretty good range but accuracy sucks
Tippmann 98 custom
12 volt revvy
psyco balistics drop
low pressure kit
hpa 47 3000
nothing breaks even when velocity is high
Accuracy, good but there are better barrels
range is pretty good
shoots throuhg breaks but not as accuratly
great barrel, especially for price.
dont get the flatline or the GTA sniper barrel
the SP progressive barrel is pretty good although i think the ceramic is a lil better
shoots fairly far
only curvs if u dont have low pressure and ur velocity is hella high
when i broke the 1 ball on purpose it still shot but not as accurate
Good barrel, some ppl say its not strong and will break. its not that true the barrel is strong enough it just feels like its gonna break because its so light . ill give it a 9 overall compared to boomsticks, ultralites, and freaks

There is no barrel similar to the ceramic. no other barrel like this one!
tippmann 98 custom
here is all the paint i used with this. all worked great, no barrel breaks.
bigball, sunflare, and bluestreak.
quietness, look, smoothness, accuracy, self cleaning, and light
What! there is no weakness for this barrel.
This barrel is best for people without much money, but is looking for a barrel almost as good as a boomstick or teardrop. this barrel is very very smooth and can clean itself.
i have the 14 inch. i reccomend 12-14 inch barrel. 10 and 16" is just too small and too big. This is one of the most commonly used barrel in the world.
BUY this if you are low on money but need a barrel just as good as a boomstick. i rated it 10 it was soo accurate. i shot a kid in the back like twice when i was far away. he cussed me out cause he was surprised.
tippman 98 custom
14" J&J ceramic
pure energy 20 OZ (CO2)
draxxus midnight or draxxus sun flare
shoots with awsome accuracy and cleans the paint out of itself (the ceramic)
can scratch easy and came with a chip in it but thats all
Ive used a few other barrels on my tippy before but this is the best. the tephlon on the inside makes the ball size not matter and cleans itself when you break a ball. The body is nice and slcik and easy to clean. If you want a cheap awsome barrel get this
buy it for your marker. Its cheap and its as good as a boomstick
vL maxis E/G with a 12" JJ ceramic and an Evo II e hopper
any medium bore size paint
tough to clean porting
no retaining o ring
This barrel is awesome. Buying a ceramic barrel I was worried about durability but the barrel shows zero wear after 2 cases of paint and one drop on an asphalt parking lot. Its accuracy is up there with most exspensive barrels with very few drops and curves. Its self cleaning is the swankest thing ever. After breaking paint in the barrel 1 or 2 shots later its shoots just as straight as if nothing happened. The inside finish is excellent shiny and smooth. The barrel seems to favor medium size paint .687 or .689. The extensive porting makes it very quiet with out affecting range very much but is tough to field clean. It also would leave me to believe this barrel would not shoot in the rain very well.
For 40 dollars you can't beat this barrel especially in speed ball where broken paint can spell doom for other barrels. I recommend this barre to all players serious and recreational. 9 out of 10
