08 spyder pilot with trinity t lock(needs ion threads), invert reloader 2, j&j s2 14inch barrel and a 48ci 4500psi guerrilla air HPA tank.
I use the cheapest stuff i can and it works fine.
doesnt chop often
and sorta cleans itself out.
Cleaning itself isnt as good as advertised.
This barrel is accurate, durable, doesnt chop very often and basiccly cleans itself out. It was $35 dollars where i got it and i have only used it in battle once. Yet when i did the enemys were dropping fast, unlike with my stock spyder barrel. It is 14in which is perfect for bunkering and such.
Buy cheap effective accurate seems durable enough yo me.
i have not really used anything but a tippman 98 stock and a spyder sonix stock
2005 Spyder sonix, J&J S2 14",12oz Co2
2005 pilot acs J&J S2 14",12oz Co2 dye stickys warrior rolling trigger and warrior clamping feedneck
Great barrel i dont reccomend any certain paint but some are better than others
Light and Pretty affordable for such great quality
Made of ceramic so could chip, NOT SELF CLEANING
I haven't use it all that much and i have been having problems with my gun but this barrel does a fine job. i was able to easily hit a 3 foot by 3 foot board at about 75 yards. I really like the barrel but it is not self cleaning lik some say but wht can you expect. Nothing is self cleaning.
it has now been just under 3 years since i got this barrel. still in almost perfect condition. but i have continued using it even though i got a new gun. it works even better on this gun because of the speed the gun has. it puts speed and accuracy together making every shot i take a deadly one. being able to put 13 bps down the field with great accuracy has helped me dramaticly. i actually hit a guy from about 60 yards away in the woods in the center of his mask which was a great accomplishment for me seeing as how poor my stock barrel was
Great barrel for the price i love it. I wish it wasnt ceramic it limts your roughness on it
i say buy it if you have the chance because i don't have a great gun and mine is very accurate with the barrel so you should try it on you higher end marker.

Red's Pepper Sticks - better (.689 back)
Lapco Big Shot - similar
Sites Stiffi - better
Dye Boomstick/Ultralite - much better
Warped Sportz Dark Cocker with E2
AGD custom black Mini Mag
ICD Laysoya Promaster
ICD Bushmaster with PDS and 1 Bushmaster blind
Autococker SF Tactical
And a few other older guns from Tippmann & Spyder
Any medium/standard bore which is about 85% of most paintballs
Very,very,easily cleaned, it does it itself :)
Um... nothing I would call a real weakness
I'll make this short since this barrel has been fairly well reviewed
i'll just put my 2 cents in.
This a nice barrel,I was quite impressed with the self cleaning. I
believed it did a better job of that than my Stiffi though a bit louder and
doesn't have quite the same range.
It has good accuracy at 60 feet and i've tried different paints with this but
it really doesn't compare to the above mentioned barrels except
the Big Shot with longer range and accuracy.
It's also much louder than the above mentioned barrels (if you care about that) except once again the the Big Shot.. Not even close to the
Dye Boomstick/Ultralite barrels with their muffled sound. It's not incredibly loud, nothing to complain about.
And it comes in a nice dust black finish,I believe that the only one that it comes in.
It's a very good barrel and can be found on many sites at a inexpensive price,I got mine on E-Bay for $20 I couldn't go wrong with that.
The bore size I believe this is .688 or .689 standard so you shouldn't have too much of a problem with a paint match.
Not much need for squeegee (I have no idea if I spelled that right)
it self cleans better than any barrel i've used even with very thick paint.
shockteck superfly bolt
4500psi Nitro Tank
Paint chips easily
small bore size
Overall i think that this is a very good upgrade for your gun. ive been using it for a while and only had a few breaks, but my fps was a lil high so maybe that was why. I think that it looks cool and it performs very well, if your not careful you could chip the nice looking finish that it has. It also looks kinda brittle, but unless you use this barrel for a tire on your car you'll be fine.
I think that if you dont want to get a flatline that this is the perfect barrel for youe gun.
Worr Domination, Diablo Inferno, and Xball Silver.
Cleans out nicely
Puts the paint where I need it.
It doesnt shoot laserbeams.
I got this barrel after reading the reviews here. This was back when I hadn't gotten my vs3 yet.
I have only used stock and this thing is a monster compaired to stock barrels. Cleans out after 2-3 shots, oly rarely have I had to use a squeegee. My vs3 shoots so fast that the balls cleaning the breaks get smashed themselves by other paintballs, so thats why im selling it, im gonna buy a kit with a bigger boresize.
This thing shoots good paint amazingly well. It has an absolutely awesome fit with Worr Domination paint.
Self cleaning, just dont shoot too fast while cleaning, I keep forgetting.
With a good barrel match, shoots darts.
Pure Energy 20oz. CO2
Pro Caps Coiled remote with slide check
Tapco MP folding Stock
Vforce Profiler goggle
J&J S2 Ceramic 14"
JCS 3/8 offset 3" long
Haven't really tested though it is medium bore.
Only used Recon camo paintballs(cheapo)
Very quiet compared to stock
pretty accurate for me
Outside finish can looked scratched
I got this from an eBay seller and have not been let down. Drastically decreased my sound level over the stock barrel. I can hit a 2' by 4' target at 30 yards with lower to average paint and CO2. I can actually hear my bolt and other internals moving and the paintball makes more noise hitting than my gun(really). Any one that wants a great barrel for $36 bucks on eBay should get this. I got the 14" on personal preference because I heard from many places that 14" is the best length for accuracy and air usage.
Get this barrel as soon as possible once you get an A-5. You won't be disappointed. I never give a 10

bone stock 98 custom with a J&J S2 ceramic barrel.
Any high quality paintballs would be fine. The days when testing I mixed brands and qualities to test out the performance. Though the next time out I used some RPS premium and the gun functioned perfectly.
The Strengths of this barrel are its accuracy and ease of cleaning.
The barrel would loosen. See review
So I ordered this barrel after my brother bought a flatline and his friend bought an allstar. So I hit up this website to read some reviews on the next barrel I wanted, and this one semmed to be an upgrade from the ceramic. Since I did not have much money I ordered this barrel based on its strengths, and did'nt worry abouts weakness. The day after I received this barrel I could'nt figure out how to get tho O-Ring on, since it was late soI didn't worry about it. So when I started playing I noticed when something would brush against my barrel I would unscrew. When this would happen the accuracy would decrease some. So at the end of the day, I decided to put the o ring on. After that I test fired the gun with the left over mixed up paintballs, And the patter became smaller.
I would reccomend this product for its cheapness, accuracy, and it is easy to clean.
tippmann 98, 12" j&j s2, 200 round hopper, 9 oz. tank
pmi premium or diablo heat
quiet, ACCURATE!!!, light, adds a little distance, looks sweet!
The finish stratches on Lemongrass! Not too quiet
i ordered the j&j s2 off actionvillage but I had to wait 4 months to use it!!! i went to play one and i could hit a lamp post from 55-65 ft. its really quiet but my brothers peppers stickz is a lot quieter! its really light, but the finish got scratched while walking through lemon grass!
Overall this is a great product from J&J, but nothing is perfect. I recommend this to anybody who isn't a hardcore paintballer, and its definetly a step up from the crappy tippy stock barrel.
1995 Spyder custom (back when I was airsmithing).
Spyder pilot ACS, smart parts all american 16" and Taso 14"(both barrels or more than 6 years old at this time), shockteck superfly bolt and New dezins HP valve.
WGP trilogy tactical, J&J s2 12" barrel, CP Flame drop foward, Shocktech superfly bolt, WGP wraped grips and Triumph 200 hopper.
Jt tactical, Nelson, and RPS
Light, Looks, and Accuracy
I have used this barrel only a few times around my property, its very accurate and pretty quiet. The first time I used it, it was throwing balls left and hard but I just went from a 14" to a 12" so what did I expect, after turning my cocker down the barrel was dead-on the money every time. I did chop one ball I then cleaned the barrel and continued (I've played paintball for 12 years now, No barrel is self cleaning and J&J does not say it is self cleaning, it may happen to get better but that's just the ceramic lining). But great barrel for the money I love the looks and the accuracy is great, the range hasn't gotten any better or worse but then again I'm shooting a closed bolt gun so range and accuracy is what that's all about.
Great barrel worth every penny you spend.
Is not self cleaning I don't no how that got started.
Quiets down the loud A-5 a little
The finish might scratch, but it doesn't affect performance
For the price, you can't get much better than this. This thing is as accurate as you can ask for, and it looks awesome doing it. Takes the loud A-5 from an all out bellowing report to a completely tolerable bark. The only time I wasn't able to shoot it clean in 2-3 shots was when my Cyclone made soup out of some cheap field paint. Not that I've had more than two or three breaks in the barrel in a couple thousand rounds anyway. When I first got it, I actually cut a ball, and poured the paint down the barrel to see how long it took to clear it out.
If you're looking for a great barrel for as little cash as you can spare, this is the one for you. Performs with the best for half the price.
