Paintballs:
Small Bore. The barrel is labelled as .90 but it has a weird slope/ lip sort of thing on the inside that I think tightens things up a bit.
Strengths: Cheap. Unusual. Accurate. Looks kinda cool.
Weaknesses: Breaks Paint at high rates of fire.
Review: I saw a 10 inch, 2 peice TL 11 Tiller barrel for sale on ebay for $15. Bought it in a second because I was lacking a nice 10 inch barrel. Unfortunately, I still am.

For the money, Tiller has made a great product. Unfortunately, you kind of get what you pay for with this barrel - Here's why:

With new barrels, I always like to put my finger in the end of the barrel that screws in to the paintball gun, just to see how smooth the contact point is. Immediately I noticed that the bore in this barrel slowly slopes inward within the first inch. I played with it on Semi with my Tippmann for a while and it was great. Accurate over long distance for a $15 10 inch barrel for sure. I decided to start walking my double trigger on auto response and started to get ball breaks. Before you all start yelling at your computers that my cyclone was breaking the balls, I can assure you it was not. There was no paint in my A5, the problem went away when I switched to my 16 inch JJ AND - and this is the kicker- when I looked in the Tiller barrel, the paint had always broken DIRECTLY after the sloping lip on the first inch of the bottom of the barrel.

Here is what was happening: When you fire a paintball at a slow rate of fire, it begins to bobble later in the firing process - somewhere at the end of the barrel. BUT, when you start firing at high ROF, the ball becomes unstable almost from the point it enters the chamber and bobbles - just a bit- the whole way down the barrel. This was causing some of the balls to impact that sloping lip and break.

Keeping the barrel clean helped reduce the breakages. Once you have a break though, it just gets worse. It's not unplayable but you definitely want to pump the paint out just to make sure it gets on target.
Conclusion: Please read the review for my explanation. If you have a semi auto gun, this should work fine. If you have an electro (maybe even a response) and want a cheap barrel, give it a shot but don't expect perfection.

-EDIT- Thought twice about rating this barrel a 6. I am re-rating as 5. Barrels shouldn't break paint even at high rates of fire.

P.S. I will be buying a better 10 inch barrel, and once I do, I doubt I will use my Tiller again.

cryptic, thats all i shot
Strengths: Price
Durability
Accuracy
Consistency
Weaknesses: Heavy for a barrel
Loud
Review: Bought this on ebay for 20 bucks total from Taiwan, didnt know how it would be.

Took a full hopper and my spyder victor in my backyard and it shot great, not a single break, i use cryptic paint its 25 for 2000 at my local dunhams.

Shot pretty straight, was kinda loud even though the front has a 1000 holes in it.

(The one at top doesnt look like mine at all).
Conclusion: Very good barrel for 20 $ reccomend using small bore paint as this barrel is tunes retty small, if you can find a good paint to fit it i bet it will shoot very well and have a tight spread

Paintballs:
what ever will fit the barrel
Strengths: I can throw it on any of my spyders and it performs the same
Weaknesses: Breaks balls and very inaccurate if you dont keep the porting clean
Review: This barrel will perform IF you match bore or under bore, otherwise its more like spraypainting. This can also happen on barrels way more exspensive.

Its not a super performer but it will walk a stock barrel all day long, especially with a good paint match,and for the price I paid ($18.00) its hard to beat.

You do have to keep the porting clean,which can be a pain. I use it on all my " loaner " guns and everyone seems to like the barrel.
Conclusion: its good for the price, it is a very simple and cheap upgade. I would buy more if I needed another cheap barrel. Id say its a 7.5 because you can find better barrels for just a few $$ more.

Paintballs:
Maybe some expensive ones cause anything from $30-$45 for a box of 2000 seems to be a waste of time...
Strengths: It is a long accurate barrel...
Weaknesses: It breaks balls on a consistent basis. Almost midway through every game.
Review: I've used one for awhile now and hate it. I break balls constantly with it and stopped using it. Someone told me it's not the barrel its the paint and I think to an extent thats true. But I switched to the stock barrel and never break a ball. Seems weird but is what happened so Im looking to find a better barrel in the near future.
Conclusion: I would find something else because this barrel does not seem worth it. Yes they are cheap but it will cause you too much hassle.
