Experience:

Marker Setup: Tippmann98 Custom, 20" smartpart tactical barrel, remote line
Strengths: Looks, lot more quite than stock, accurate
Weaknesses: Getting used to length
Review: When i first saw this barrel i fell in love with it . I ordered and it came in took it home and tested it. Worked wonderful. And when we went out and played on sunday I compared it to my cousins stock 98 custom. The difference was amazing on how loud it was, and how the accurateness was a big plus. It did take me awhile to get used to it but i had no problems really the first game. Had no problem running with it and shooting as fast as possible. Never had a ball break in it which i thank ful for seeing how it could be a pain to clean. But should have to worry about that for awhile.
Conclusion: Overall i love this barrel would recommend it to any woods-ball player to get an upper hand on quietness and accuracy

Marker Setup: A-5, starfire bolt, E grip, expansion chamber, double trigger, compressed air 3000 psi

Paintballs:
pro ball is good but the best is (especially in the woods) is combat 68
Strengths: Very accurrate, shoots far, looks great, very quiet.
Weaknesses: May need o adjust velocity due to long length.
Review: I love this barrel.
It is the best part ive out on my gun so far.
My kills have gone up three hundred percent.
Alot of my friends think im basically cheating because of its length.
Now i take all my kills from about fifty plus feet.
This is the ideal barrel for a sniper due to its accuracy and stealthyness.
Smart parts has done it again, same with the linear barrel which is the same but looks more for speedball.
Conclusion: Nike....just do it.

Review: Ordering this barrel I wasn't sure I was doing right. Nobody of my friends has tested that before. Only reason that I bought it was its look. The price was not bad so I took the risk.
After all it was worth, barrel seems to be a really great deal.
It isn't expensive.
It's really accurate and does not need a expensive paintballs.
SP already made good barrels but the TACTICAL become my favorite one!!!
GOOD JOB!!!
Conclusion: If anybody wants a military looking barrel which is also accurate SP TACTICAL is the one. In addition it ain't cost a lot of money ;)

Medium Bore, but small still works.
From what I have observed; any kind will work
I have used the worst (wild streak) and great (tork) paint in it. Both work fine, tork is a bit more accurate but not by much.
Strengths: *ACCURATE!
*Medium loudness
*Looks
*Did i mention accurate?
*INTIMIDATION
Weaknesses: *Maybe a bit too long
nothing else so far
Review: ******Keep in mind I actually OWN this barrel, I can't say so for the other reviews about it




**Story time**: So I am cruising the net's paintball sites, and I run into this awesome looking barrel. So i look into it. No reviews about it on pbreview.com yet, so i was a little doubtful. So I thought why not go out on a limb and try something, it was made by Smart Parts so it couldn't be bad. I got it 5 days later. I raced home from school and I took it out into the abnormally cold, canadian day. I shoot 15 shots, very impressed. Until, a ball broke, after that it was all downhill. Be warned if one ball breaks you cannot, i repeat cannot, shoot it clean. They will 80% all break afterwards and all accuracy is gone. So i was a little disappointed. The next day (below freezing also) I went to my local field to play with some buddies. Second game a ball broke and I was screwed, so i came off cleaned it and played again, same story, ball breaks i go off. I then was a little pissed so I put on my stock barrel and it kept breaking balls. It turns out everyone there on CO2 was breaking balls so it is NOT the barrels fault.

The reason I didn't write this a week ago was becuase i didn't want to give my opinion when i was angry about it. So I went out today in comfortable temperatures and used it again.

A song comes to mind at this point " I can see clearly now the rain is gone".

The barrel blew me away it was amazingly accurate!!
I was able to hit a 2 foot wide board 100% from 35 meters away.
That was also with the cheapest paint money can buy. I once regretted my purchase but realized it was my CO2 the whole time, I love this barrel. (details below)




---***Accuracy***---
This barrel is very very accurate, I am not saying it is as accurate as a real gun, but as close as it gets for paintball anyways. It is a HUGE improvement over the stock one. I highly recommend it.

---***Workmanship***---
This barrel is extremely well built, the inside finish is litterally mirror like, the porting lines up when you screw in the barrel, and it has a nice solid feel to it. It also has a perfect woodsball paint finish, exact same as the A-5.

---***Maneuverabilty***---
This barrel however is quite long. It took a while for me to get used to it. All personal preference however.

---***Weight***---
This barrel isn't too much of a weight diffrence from the stock one, not meaning to brag or anything but I'd say im above average strength so it doesn't bother me at all, I'm sure it won't for you either unless your a 12 year old girl.

---***Made For***---
This barrel is 98% woodsball, it is the exact opposite of a desired speedball barrel. I use it in both though, so it can be both if needed. But its soul is woodsball, if you are a speedsball player do not buy this.

---***Pickiness***---
This barrel is not picky at all on paint, just a tiny bit on velocity however.


Conclusion: This is the perfect barrel for woodsballers, amateurs and pros alike. It is extremely accurate, but with that comes the akward length. Anyways I conclude by saying this: If you are a woodsballer, buy this barrel. I would give it a 9.8 so that rounds up to 10.
