Review: We recently picked up a dealership with Predator games, hoping to stock their products. In Michigan we have a problem with practicing speedball in the winter due to the snow. Our team was looking at these, so I decided to purchase one and test it to see if it would suit our needs. Last week I opened the box which was well padded, and inside contained my 'manual', the receiver, and the barrel. The receiver and barrel already come with batteries.

I ordered my barrel in Spyder threads because you can purchase adaptors to fit nearly any marker. I threw on my Angel adaptor eager to start using it. It only requires a source of air. It's just like dry firing your marker. The barrel uses the vibrations from the gun to shoot the IR beam. You can use CO2, N2, or Air on your marker, it doesn't matter.

I set the receiver up, about 20 feet from me on top of the couch. When you shoot this thing is pretty darn accurate. You can usually get within 2 or 3 inches of the receiver and it will hit, this is pretty good at that distance. This barrel works great for improving your snap shooting skills. I recommend it to any tournament player who wants to hone their skills, or anyone who just wants to play a 'high tech laser tag'.

I talked to my team about it, and I think we will all end up ordering them, then setting up bunkers indoors and run practices with them. The great part about it is no mess. No paint is being used, this cuts down on practice costs.

Although the IR beam does not convey the actual trajectory of a paintball (the curve and velocity loss at certain distances) it works great for just practicing.
Conclusion: I recommend this barrel to anyone who can afford it. If you have the extra amount of money and want to run off season pracitce, go for it. It is a great investment and will in the end help you develop your skills as a better player.
