Spyder Victor IV, Proto 16 inch 1 Piece Barrel, Trinity Locking feed neck
Any paint but RPS works the best
Length Weight bore
This is a good barrel for any person who has a spyder or spyder clone because of the bore and the style of the barrel you also get a dye barrel for more than half the price and it has a consisteint bore of .689 so bigger paintballs are recomended this barrel will shoot goo like a mofo if you chop a ball
The only barrel you will ever need
10 out of 10

-Price Is A Definate
-None That I Know Of
I picked one of these up for my Spyder about a year back. I have to say I am very pleased with this barrel, for it's price it is very accurate and highly efficient. It is availible in many assorted colors and threads. The design isn't anything special, but that has nothing to do with its performance. I'd say go get it.
This is a great barrel to get if you are running on a tight budget. I have never used it with any other gun besides the pm5 but it comes stock on the pm5. My brother has a dm4 with a ultralight barrel, i tested it out on my gun and there really was no difference in accuracy, its a tad bit lighter but thats all. I say save $70 and get this thing over the fancier two-pieces that tend to be a bit pricey.
Definitely the best in its price range so if its in ur range consider it greatly.
Tippmann 98 Custom Pro
Proto 1 PC Barrel(black)
Anything, I use $30 per 2,000 paintballs and they seem to work fine.
Accurate, and moderately quiet barrel. Works well especially at close range.
Not many, but it isn't the greatest for long range(100+ft).
I purchased this barrel and have played with it twice, both of the times being very impressed for the performance coming out of such a cheap barrel. I purchased this barrel for $30 and can't complain. I will admit I was expecting better performance at long range, but that could have something to do with the slight wind I have experienced the last few times I have played. Don't expect to be sniping people from 150 feet because it wont happen.
All in all, if you are just a casual player looking for a good cheap barrel then this is the one for you.

Anything the matches good
Other than can scratch kinda easily none.
When i first got the barrel in the mail it looked very sexy. So i pop that thing on me gun and it looks great. I put a pod in the hopper and head out to test it. First i was impressed that it was very light. Also i thought that since theres so much porting on it that it would decrease velocity. I shot the first ball and it was much quieter than the stock ion piece of crap they give you. After about 500 balls i still have no chops!! And its still going well.
Overall i would recommend this barrel to anyone looking to upgrade their stock barrel and wants to get a bang for a buck as they say.

Light but all barrels are lol
1pc So no change in bore size.
Well i got this barrel cause i thought the stock 9'' sonix one kinda sucked so i went to my local shop and told them i needed a 12" barrel and told them i was on a budget so they recomended me this barrel.
at first i thought well this must be crap beacose it was the cheapest there but no sir, this barrel is tha bomb, with allstars, this thing has ball on ball accuracy!
I would recomend this to any player who is on a budjet and wants an upgrade from the stock barrel. but like I said its a 1 pc and no bore size selection:(

Doesn't really matter, I played today and used whitebox paint as well as Zap Spank and Cryptic and Monster Balls a friend had. They all worked fine.
Cleans Itself Fairly Well
Not any that come to mind actually..
The Key Strengths pretty much speak for themselves. They're listed in the order of greatest importance as far as I'm concerned.
The price was the main reason I got this barrel. I was actually looking for an A-5 Progressive barrel, but they were sold out so I got this instead as it was the same price. Generally it performs much like my Progressive on my 98 Custom does.
The accuracy is middle-of-the-road. It's pretty good, but not the best. This might be due to the fact that my bore size isn't matched up perfectly, but I really don't care. It still isn't too bad.
The barrel does a decent job of suppressing some sound, again, middle-of-the-road. It's certainly better than the stock barrel, but it isn't whisper quiet or anything.
I tripped and got some dirt and pine needles in the end of the barrel. Two shots and it was all cleared out and I didn't brake a ball doing it. Pretty good, doubt it has much to do with the barrel but I thought I'd add this on.
Although I always buy black because I play woodsball and a shiny red wouldn't really work for me, there is a good selection of colours to choose from. Also the barrel looks sleek.
I recommend that you try this barrel out. It basically performs the same as my Progressive did on my 98 Custom, but that's not a bad thing. It's a good quality product for an affordable price. Give it a try. From what I hear the 1 Piece is a lot better than the 2 Piece. The 1 Piece works great for me anyway, so why fumble around trying to get a perfect size. Give this a shot.

I really like this barrel it is accurate and inexpensive. The only real weakness it doesnt clean that well unless u use a sqeegee. I havn't had this problem more than twice though. The barrel is only $40 and comes in one or two piece form( i recommend one piece). This barrel comes in different colors to suite your needs. i really like this barrel
I recommend this to any person with a smart parts marker

look at profile
this has a medium sized bore. Id say .689-.691
Very light, is like a feather.
Upgrade from stock barrel.
Not very high quality barrel
Pn/Oil/gunkish build up(see Review)
First my little bro has this not me. I just tested and checked it. also, he doesn't take care of his things so the barrel wont be in good condition.
This is a Good Barrel but i have seen better. This is a very lightweight barrel. It feels like the weight of a small standard cheep pen( no joke i held the 2 and they felt like they weighed the same). This is also an upgrade from stock barrels(Tippmann, Spyder). This is also pretty quiet. The only problems i found were it scratches easily( I saw many scratches and some paint chipped off). While i was cleaning his barrel for him, after i squeegeed it a couple of time there was a gunkish build up and little specks of stuff in it. I tried to clean it again it was all still there... so maybe its just me or this barrel has cleaning issues.
This is a good barrel but i would not recommend it. id say get J&J they are better quality.
