The NXe BC1 Barrel Cover was designed for ultimate protection off the field and after games. The NX-BC1 was made to form fit the barrel for a sleek look, while providing the maximum protection for those extra light triggers that happen to go off when they are not supposed to. The NX-BC1 is made out of durable 1680D Ballistic Nylon for a long, rough life.
The NXe Barrel Condom is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
I work at a field and we use these for our rental guns... so far they have lasted at LEAST 3 times as long as any other condom we've tried. the elastic never tore out of the sides... great product and great design. The only thing is that they're ugly! orange ftl.

Does its job
None, it does whats its suppose to do.
Well, theres not much to say about this...its looks good and works how its suppose to fo. It stops balls and looks sharp at the same time. Its made out of some tough material so nothing is gonna get through it, and the elastic string thing on it isnt gonna rip so i would trust its "safeness."
Well, its a nice barrel condom. It works well, and i recommend it.

Built very well
These barrel socks are very durable they hold up well.and look great, for a science fair product my lab partner and i tested if a NXe barrel sock could with stand multiple shots
and by multiple i mean we unloaded a whole hopper in the sock. we found that the NXe were very good top of the line we never had one paintball escape the sock although it was a very very messy ordeal we tested two others the results are as follows Spyder barrel PLUG withstood 2 paintballs wow sucks! next Dye barrel sock after 30 shots the elastic gave way and popped of the marker. well for a normal misfire its ok
all in all the NXe is top of the line quality. i feel every one should be safety conscientious use barrel socks that work not plugs and the NXe are the one to get!
Safety first barrel socks are like $ 4.00 cheaper than an eye which is irreplaceable im giving it a 9 cause they stopped all paintballs but almost never cleans well

Strong "tip" and sides
Weak area around opening, opposite of the elastic
I received a black NXe barrel sock with the "starter kit" I bought with my first marker several months ago.
Now, I'm no dummy - I know you can't shoot paint into these repeatedly and expect them to survive. Over the course of several months, I've put less than a dozen paintballs into the sock - probably more like 3 or 4. I wash it carefully in warm water and dry it out when done.
The centre section running from tip to nearly the opening has a thick piece of nylon webbing to keep paint from shooting through. That's the good part.
The bad part is the seam opposite the elastic strap at the opening: it's unreinforced. The reinforced section made of nylon webbing that does the work of absorbing the impact of a shot stops about an inch short of the top. The stress concentrates there and rips the sock after a while. See the photo I posted.
The embroidery is flawless and the sewn in tag features the NXe logo so I'm inclined to think these are the Real McCoy.
This design flaw isn't a problem if you put the sock on properly - it will continue to stop paint.
The danger is when you slide the sock on, if the rip is facing away from you, you won't notice you've just put the barrel through the rip and it's OUTSIDE the sock. I've been careful not to do this but I've seen other people make that mistake - fortunately it's been caught.
For that reason along, I have to deduct points from what would otherwise be a perfect product.
It has the potential to be downright dangerous, though if used correctly and you "avoid the rip", the sock will continue to stop paint because of the reinforced centre. It has to get a "below average" rating because of this.
NXe: I love your products and have many but PLEASE work on improving this! (I have two of these socks that have done the same thing.)
Get one but be careful and watch for that rip or reinforce it yourself with some extra webbing.
EDIT: see the uploaded photo of the sock with a barrel "inserted" outside the sock, through the rip. If flipped over, barrel down, you don't notice this and merrily walk around without any barrel protection. DANGER WIL ROBINSON!

My other condom had....ripped...So I grabbed the first condom I saw at my local proshop. Man was I glad I went for this one! It is a much higher quality piece than my old condom, and it cleans your muzzle when you insert it. The cord is high quality, and wont rip. I decided to test this with Reballs...couldn't damage it at all.

This barrel condom is a really great value for the money. Its very easy to adjust and has a really nice elastic that is really stretchy. It has a nice soft fabric on the inside that prevents it from scratching the barrel. The outside material is condura and is very strong.
A great simple product for a reasonabel price. How can you go wrong?

Okay well I wanted to get a barrel cover for my Spyder... because it only came with a barrel plug.. which really isn't all that safe and I can't imagine it's very good for the barrel either. So I went to a local paintball store and looked at the ones they had. And I bought this one, because it had a good price and was made out of a very durable materiel! The first day I used it I was so glad I had bought it because it's so much easier to put on and take off than a barrel plug! And it's much safer.. so if your looking for a good, durable, cheap barrel cover this is a good choice.
Well.. it's a barrel cover and it's well made and cheap.. what else could you want?
