This is a great barrel, especially for the price. It IS a stock barrel...but for a high-end marker. This barrel is super accurate, quiet, and looks pretty good. The only problem i had is i didn't match my paint, stuck a pod in and went at it....chop city. The barrel does have a tendency that once you do chop a ball..it becomes a shotgun....spray and chopping every ball in the barrel after that.
Some people say that it chops bad.....well...lets just say...barrel to paint means so much in the world of paintball....also...paint will expand in humid areas or on humid days. ACCOUNT FOR THIS, bring smaller paint because paint that fits good at home, will expand and be too big on extremely humid days. The barrel won't be doing all the chopping either if the marker isn't configured correctly.
This barrel is top notch, you just have to make sure you're doing things correctly.
Keep it clean, keep the match between barrel and paint good, keep it on the opponent and you won't have a problem. I can't give it a 10 because it doesn't flex and mold the paintball, and tell me the velocity, acceleration, displacement, curve details, and laser dot where the paintball will land....so its not perfect haha, but it IS worthy of a 9 if not slightly more for what your paying.

It has a .690 bore, so most will fit. Chronic(a little small), Inferno(excellent), and Rec Sport(excellent) all work great.
Self cleans well
I wanted a new barrel for my Ion, after using my stock one for 6 months. I like Proto gear, i use all Proto gear (except gun), so I decided to go with this barrel. It is super nice and has a great finish. The bore is as smooth and shiny as you could ask for. I went to SC Village the next day to try it out. It has some great long range accuracy for a 14" barrel, which is probably because the porting is designed the way it is. In speedball, it does great. Ball on ball great. All the paint i have used in it has worked good. Proto paint is supposed to be the best, but that is probably because it is a Proto barrel. I mainly use Draxxus Rec Sport paint through it. I recently used Draxxus Inferno and that was even better. Chronic is a little small, but whatever is up with this barrel, makes it shoot just as accurately.
I love this barrel. It looks great on my gun, and shoots just as well. Great buy in my opinion.
$35 Shrapnel is all i got to try so far. (they worked great)
I don't know what to do with the extra money I saved.
I dunno if it was just good paint to barrel match, but this is the most accurate barrel i have ever used, no joke. I was using $35 paint, and i was amazed at how well it did. This barrel cost as much as the box of paint i was using, wow. Didn't get a single break all day! It's nice and quiet (soooo quiet compared to my old pipe). Accuracy was about a 2 in radius from about 50 ft. The people at Dye/Proto picked a great bore size too, it fits allmost all paint. (unless it's oversized crap)
Have an questions, just ask.
Stop reading this review and go buy this!

I got this barrel with the cocker and this is so flippin accurate. i love this barrel. i grabbed some paint aired the gun up and started rippin. i hit a cone hanging about 65 feet away with no problems at all. if i could have i would have liked to have a 2 piece but i dont mind that much since i had a good paint/bore match anyway
proto 1 piece 14" barrel
Kingman JAVA Metal Elbow
Cool look. accuracy is very very very good! Cheap.
This barrel is really good on my spyder TL-X I can be all the way on the other side of the field and still hit someone. so there was a break out and I was standing on the left the ref said go I stood there and shot like 4 balls then went to a can I hit a guy in the face and I was barely even aiming and I still nailed this guy. For six months I have been using this barrel and I have never had a ball break in it.!!!!! Its cheap.
This is a very good barrel a say this barrel should be used by all kinds of play and on levels from bad to good and some best and it is cheap.

To lazy to type anything else
Xball for sure
Cannot shoot through a break worth anything, always carry a squeegee
Overall this barrel is worth everypenny and thats not very many. Its a great barrel for its price and would buy a new one anyday. The only real problem i found with it is that if you have a ball break, u might as well take the balls of of your hopper and start throwing them because i got some pretty wild curves one game. A squeegee will save you.

Stock barrels on my spyder victor and fenix.This barrel is a good barrel compared to these because it is light and very accurate.
I use the spyder fenix acs and the accessories i have for it is a 14inch proto barrel, and an electric hopper.
Light weight, accurate, price, looks.
It sticks out far so people can see you laugh out loud.
I love this barrel thanks to a friend of mine who is awsome at paintball who helped me find this barrel. This barrel has everything You are looking for in a barrel because this barrel is accurate, and it will help you get out of sticky situations. This barrel is coll because you can hit so many people off the break as long as you aim so i suggest to get this barrel.
Get this barrel because you will not be let down because this barrel will go the extra step with you to get you out of any problems.

Cheap. Price is great
Holes at end can chop paint (see review)
This barrel is probably the best barrel you can get for your gun. for right now its the only barrel i will put on my ion until i can afford the freak kit. Its lightweight and is perfect with badlandz paint. the only problem i saw with it was that my holes werent polished out enough, so i chopper paint right at first use. proto customer service actuall paid me the shipping cost to send the barrel to them and they sent my a new one. when screwing in this barrel make sure your thread r clean or your barrel will start to get scratched up. the scratched part is fine theres nothign wrogn with it. for $30 this barrel is great. for you kids with ions i tell u now. get this barrel.
Great barrel. If you have $30 buy oneespecially for people with guns like ions. deserves the 9.
This is a good barrel for a beginner its cheap,acuurate and cool looking.It doesnt work very well on humid days. Ichopped about 3 balls out of 1000 using this barrel.I would not recomend this barrel to some one who really want reliability in there barrel.Thats why im ordering a evil pipe barrel kit.
