Tippmann A-5 , egrip, 2 barrels : flatline and dye titanium boomstick with barrel extension, custom products drop forward. replacement front grip.
Durability, Weight, Looks pretty good Accuracy., average distance
Price(175$!) Very loud
I had my TI boomstick for a while until i heard about the flatline, I loved the thing., But now i go to a field with field paint only, and PMI screws up with flaltine(break every few balls) So im going back to TI boomstick. ITs a great barrel, But i made the mistake of getting titanium instead of buying the 80 dollar cheaper regular boomstick. The only difference between the 2 is weight. Its good if your willing to spend the money.
its good for speedball, but just decent for woods. Flatlines work much better in woods.
Incredible barrel, I would give it 10 but the price really limits it. I would reccomend you buy the regular boomstick and save your money.
Its worth the money, but the regular boomstick is more bang for its buck
I like it anyways, good for speedball
-2 peice not glued
-the logo Dye isn't veiwable enough
I can't stress enough how pleased i am with this barrel. I mean anything that uses the space age material titanium must be good, and it is. With this barrel you can lay down a stream of paint and it will follow a very constant path. No more of those balls that zing sideways left and right. This is a true barrel for even hardcore paintball fans. What I don't like is the two peice. I can't figure out why they made it two but as long as it keeps that amazing accuaracy I guess I don't have a problem with it. As far as I am concerned this barrel is up in the top of the top range if not the* top. Like I said earlier this can just lay down a hose of paint where you want it so if your a sniper you can pick off hoppers and feet sticking out; if your someone with a responce trigger or e-trig this will keep accurate even at fast rate of fire.
Look arround on the internet for sales because I woulnd't pay the full $150+ for it.
I highly recomend this if you are really into paintball and you want your paint to always go where you want it. This is the real deal none of that fake stuff. GO OUT BUY IT! It may cost more than all the others but there is a reason...ITS SUPERIOR TO ALL THE OTHERS. It is spendy but that isn't enough to bring it down to a 9.
10 out of 10

Tippman 98 - stock, Senerio series 14"
Autococker - stock
Red 03' autococker
16" Ti boomstick
Halo TSA loader
RPS - most of the RPS work real good in this barrel, just dont put Big Ball through it - the accuracy really lacks with big ball
-doesn't shoot threw breaks too well
I got this barrel for only $94 at my local shop after finding it in the used barrel rack. I was very surprised at how good of shape it was in. But any way, this barrel is so amazing! This accuracy is really good. I shot 10 shots of RPS premium paint from 60' away and got a 6"by 7" grouping. It is not only accurate but it really quiets the gun down a lot. I don't really think this barrel is worth $200. I would get a freak system or something eles instead, but for how much i paid this barrel was worth every penny.
The barrel is really good, it quites the gun, improves acc. considerably, and is really light.
But this barrel is defiantly not worth $200
I give it a 9 because of the price
Black Magic LE cocker, w/ dye boomstick Ti, Egg2, 68CI 3000 Carbon Fibre tank, w/ dye rhino tank cover
small to medium bore paint, something thick shelled
-one bore size
-porting hard to clean
While I was waiting for my new boomstick to come in, i was firing some premiums through my stock barrel, and numerous times the paint would roll out of the barrel, much to my surprise when i got the boomstick the paint broke in the barrel twice every 200 rounds or so.
I changed to a smaller paint, with a thicker shell and I have yet to have a break.
The paint flies so incredibly straight that i can now snipe tips of hoppers, feet sticking out just a little too far, or that shoulder that i can see through the little crack in the wood. Its by far the most accurate barrel i have ever used.
Just by looking into the barrel, and feeling its weight you can tell its pure quality, and i imagine you could drag sand through the barrel without scratching the micro-honed surface, but i'm not willing to try.
When i first bought this beauty, the store owner simply asked "why?" i said "why not", he said "its 200+ dollars for a barrel" (thats canadian btw), and its very true, you have to be on the richer side of things, or very hardcore into paintball to bother wasting cash on this, but in my opinion its worth it.
The porting is so small, and even if you block the barrel and fire, you will not get all the paint out of the little holes, not even a q-tip would work, i ended up using a toothpick, and there is A LOT of porting to clean.
All in all it was worth the cash, however i expect a freak system, edge system, or evil pipe kit will work just as well, and you would have the freedom to choose bore sizes.
all americans, freaks, freak jrs., tear drops, other boomys, CPs, 32* carbon fibers, and stock barrels on pirahna's cocker's mag's and tribals..
I have a vertibrate cocker with some stuff on it and another cocker with some stuff on it.
medium sized paint .687, you have to use really nice paint cuz this barrel is picky..
OK accuracy with good paint
un-accurate with wrong paint.
This barrel is much to expensive and much too over-rated. it truly is. for 150+ i would rather just use that to get a hammerhead system or WGP kaner. Unless u have the right paint, still havent really found it yet... it wont shoot that great for how much you pay. sure its really accurate but for cheaper, you can get 90% as good barrels for 1/2 the price! i would ditch this and use it for a freak or mayb multiple bore CP barrels. Try the CP out, they are really nice. it is pretty accurate and looks real sharp too. its heavy and loud but for me,(front player in tourneys) i dont really care about it being loud. like i said, its heavy and it sort of offbalances my gun , at least for me because i like the back being heavier. i would really suggest a CP barrel or All american but its your money!...
i sold mine actually to a frind and bought a kaner system. bad thing is kaners only come for cockers right now...
i would have to give this a 7 because of its weight, its price, and its just not as good as everyone says it is. its not a bad barrel but its much to expensive to be worth it.

Best barrel i have ever had extremely light and durable
the only thing i hated was the price but with this price don't matter
GET GET GET IT IT IT
shoots with in less than one inch on middle shot or less
Just wasting space got to write more
have fun don't be an annoying loser in p-ball
SWEET BARREL, get this not a kit
Everything sux caompared to this
Flash LCD, TL+, AMG all with my own little mods to try and make them shoot as well as the Angel Speed I have on order. If any one out there is wondering, if you are going to play competitively then it is better to spend more money on a great marker then dump a bunch of money into affordable markers that will never be up to par. Trust me I have obviously tried.
Any good paint will do. I like PMI Evils or the original JT Maxims.
This barrel is so light, durable and accurate.
Price, ot match paint you will need more than one of these.
I had the original boomstick and absolutely loved it. When I found out that there was a Titanium one that was going to be lighter and more durable I had to get it. I have shot well over 20 cases of paint through this barrel and have less than 10 balls break in my marker and I think that all of the breaks were caused by my high pressure markers. If I had been shooting an angel or some other LP marker I probably would never have broken one. And these things are so accurate. If you can afford it get this barrel. I plan on having three of these for my Angel so that I can always match my paint and make this barrel even more whoop &$$.
I wrote to much in the review so just read that. I am giving this product a ten even though it's is so expensive because it is just plain the best.
Matrix with trinity reg , and PBC bolt kit and volumizer.
The good ones...marbalizer, anarchy.
It is light weight accurite.
None visible to the human eye or with the use of a microscope
This Barrel is very good. It is better than every other barrel ever created by mankind. The only barrels that comes close are lapcos and the Freak. None compare but those. It is very light. Infact half the weight of the old boomstick. It is also very accurate. So accurate that it is awesome. Sorry I need more words but ive said all i need.
It is exelent. There is no other barrel which compares aside from the ones mentioned above.
2002 Sto cocker with pure energy 68/4500 macdev gladiator shocktech pnuematics dye frame/internals+roller sear lightning bolt
Evil paint , anarchy
accuracy and weight
the price is high but it is half titanium and its well worth it
only buy this barrel if you have the money. with that outta the way, this is a fantastic barrel. my friend got one on his sfl and let me shoot it. DAMN! i was hooked this thing was so accurate and lightweight. so i bought one for myself and i noticed an incredible increase in accuracy. as far as the weight goes its subtle but its nice to get
Buy this if you got the cash this is quite very light and very accurate. kudos to dye
