View Full Version : barrel upgrade

are there any very accurate/quieter (then stock) barrels out there that won't cost THAT much?

01-30-2006, 01:37 PM
j&j ceramic are good...:D, and cheap

01-30-2006, 01:51 PM
hows the boom stick?

01-30-2006, 02:18 PM
boom stick would be the way to go if u got the money. ultra lites are the best IMO

01-30-2006, 05:57 PM
deffinetely ... they're expensive as heck .. not in my pricerange at all, unless i saved for a while ... if it isn't and you want a barrel right away .. a good choice could be between j&j ceramic, cp 1 piece, and a smartparts .. whether it's a teardrop, freak, or all american

01-30-2006, 06:01 PM
yea dont go witht he progressive cause fr the same amount of money u can get something a lot better

01-30-2006, 06:16 PM
i love my teardrop :)

just hate when i have a barrel break or a chop :(

01-31-2006, 02:52 AM
haha thats partly why i didn't name that barrel :p

02-01-2006, 10:37 AM
what do you thind of this one its kind of pricy and i cant find a lenght on it.

whats the difference between this boom stick and the one with the tip?
This one has tip

02-01-2006, 02:10 PM
the one with the tip is liek the full barrel, the other one is just the back

02-01-2006, 04:48 PM
wow so thats way expensive then...
what makes it so much better than other barrels??

02-02-2006, 01:51 PM
... well if you have the right paint ... the dye boomstick shoots farther, because there's less restriction .. and it is more accurate ... but paintballs curve cuz of weather as it is ... so really ... i'd just say get a cheap one

02-03-2006, 02:20 PM
ok so if you had up to around $50 to spend on a barrel maybe a bit more what would you get??

02-03-2006, 08:33 PM
a cp 1 piece classic barrel .. or a smart parts freak barrel, i would say :)

02-04-2006, 09:23 AM
do they have cp's or freak on pbnation? cant find either one
I have a gift certificate there

02-04-2006, 01:36 PM
... in the BST section they should ... look harder :p

02-07-2006, 05:17 AM
will a gift card work there? what do u guys think of tear drop?

02-07-2006, 03:18 PM
teardrops are great. umm the giftcard ... not sure about that ... but if you buy one from someone your gonna most likely gonna have to use paypal or MO(moneyorder)

02-07-2006, 03:26 PM
i love my teardrop :)

just hate when i have a barrel break or a chop :(

thats why I ask so i think im gona go with that unless any one has any more suggestions

02-07-2006, 06:17 PM
yep .. it's actually a pretty good decision

02-10-2006, 05:23 PM
look on the net for a DYE ultralite. I have a 16inch one peice and it is nice. My friend has the same setup as me and i out shot the boomstick with my barrel. so it is worth the price. I had and evil driver and it stunk compared to the ultralite. and i really don't think tear drops would be the way to go on an electra. get a good barrel not a cheap one unless you only play every now and agian.

02-11-2006, 08:13 AM
Yeah thats another one i was thinking about geting

Does this one come with a tip?? How long is it?

02-11-2006, 08:18 AM
that is only for the back. the tip is not included

02-11-2006, 01:13 PM
you can get a one peice or a two peice. i went for a one peice. Yuo can get them in 12,14,16 inch i think. But it is worth the money.

02-11-2006, 03:54 PM
dang thats expensive

02-11-2006, 04:25 PM
Expensive, yes. Worth it, hell yes. That barrel gives you better accuracy than almost any other I have seen.

02-11-2006, 04:52 PM
i love it. the only reason i did not get the two peice is that the place i bought it from was not in stock. It probualy shoot just as good. Anyway if you don't want to spend that much you can always get an all american or a quiet riot there not as much but still shoot well.

02-11-2006, 05:47 PM
well i think yall have me talked in to an ultralite. so do I need to get an ultralight tip and base or does the tip mater? im sort of confused:confused: :confused:

One word..."search" (...and I'm a link...click me) (http://www.ottersccustoms.com/faq.html#upgrade)

i just purchased a boomstick ($115) and was shocked when i saw it shot alot better then my friends ultralite (this may just be my expierience) but i like the boomstick ALOT better. but if money is an option id get a fulltilt J&J ceramic. it cleans itself and is VERY accurate. :D
