Made from high polished aluminum and then nickel plated, this air rifled, two piece quality barrel performs as great as it looks. Available in 12 and 14 inch lengths, there is an ICE COLD barrel for the Model 98, the Spyder and for Tippmann models.
The 32 Degrees Ice Cold Barrel is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Smooth and stylish- this barrel looks good, shoots straight, and is relatively quiet. It has a highly polished bore which makes for great performance no matter what paint I use. So far I ahve had Zero (0) ball breaks. Very affordable too!
The thing shows every little fingerprint. It's not too hard to polish though.
For the money, this barrel is equal in performance to my Custom products 2 piece. It is approximately .689 borwe which is perfect for most paint. I have used Marbalizer, Slam balls, I&I House blend, and 32 degrees paint. Not a single break.
-Buy it- it's inexpensive and performs on par with other higher price barrels.
This barrel is one of the best barrel I have ever owned and thats coming from someown who has owned a all american tear drop and boom stick, the only difference is the price the ice cold was only $45. very accurate quiet and very very few ball breaks I have put around 3000 rounds of paint through it and not a single break.
Its polished aluminum it gets dirty kinda easy.
I can not urge to buy enough, this barrel was made for the spyder and prarana owners who want to get better shots in all around.
The 32 degrees ice cold is a very sharp looking barrel, and it performs as great as it looks. Its very quiet, and very accurate. Everywhere i go play p-ball, people come up to me and ask me how i like the barrel. Most of them told me that their first upgrade was an ice cold.
Some of the bad points of this barrel is that its made out of aluminum. This may not seem like a bad thing, but its a very hard barrel to clean. My fingerprints are all over the barrel. I also have stains inside the barrel where i couldnt clean it all the way.
Overall, this is a very good upgrade barrel for a new paintball player. I used a 14 inch ice cold on a Spyder TL Plus. Tip : dont use the old brass eagle paint. Use Diablo, Marbalizer, or basicall anything else. The Ice Cold cost me $48. This is a very good barrel compared to the micro-polished muzzle brake barrel that comes with the Spyder TL Plus. I reccomend this barrel to anyone who is looking for their first upgrade or their first barrel.

Good Accuracy, and not very expensive, first upgrade that should be made.
shoots great, probably not as accurate as a boomstick, but u could buy 3 of these for the price of 1 boomstick.
overall a very good barrel, and probably one of the top barrels in the $50-70 price range. Works extremelly well on my spyder, and 32 degrees team colors work very good with barrel. The last 2 times i used it I ran 500 paintballs through it each time and only had 1 break. 1 break/1000 shots.
Shoots marbs very well along with proball
Too Bright.(so I taped the barrel with camo tape)
I'm not going to try to tell you this is the best barrel out there but I think price vs. performance it ranks up there with the best. I also feel every person should try many barrels to see witch one soots for them. I took this barrel up against a J&J and a armson stealth in 25 degree weather and it performed just as well if not better than both. Everyone was shooting marbs and I had only one ball break all day compared to at least 10 apiece from the other barrels. Also we were all running the same gun. So all in all if your looking for a cheap barrel that performs look no farther but performance in paintball sits very much in the eye of the beholder. Peace :)
Note:i gave it a 10 because of price vs. Solid performance. Solid

This barrel is very good for the price.I paid 45.00 shipped and play with it on my shutter.
The barrel is a little bright when the sun is out.The barrel is a little loud compared to my PMI
On my shutter,the 14 inch barreldoes very well with marbs and pmi paint.This is a very good improvement over the factory and for the price is not bad($45.00)I would reccommend this barrel to anyone who has a shutter and is wanting to upgrade without spending $100.00 or so.I have yet found a reason of why the dye is better.I have used my freinds dye and have not seen a difference
