His balls curve consistently in one direction? He has a scratch on that side of the barrel on the inside caused either by dirty balls or a dirty squeegee. Best way to fix that is to buy another barrel, or learn how to cope with it, really. If it isn't consistent, wash out the barrel with a mixture of water (lots of it), rubbing alcohol, and dish soap. Run a clean squeegee through after that, and wipe down the outside of the barrel with a soft towel.

As far as barrel breaks, use better paint and make sure the barrel is screwed in all the way.

Is he even using good paint?
maybe the paint is way to small, or old and has dimples.

besides that I think Bigred covered it all

The only other thing I would add is to make sure that the paint your using isnt to large for the boar of your barrel.

That doesnt mean that the boar size is right. Try I smaller diameter paint, i use draxxus rec sport it always works good for me. to see if the paint may be to larg for the boar of your barrel grab a handful of out of the bag and take your barrel off drop the paint into the barrel if it gets stuck in there chances are your paint is just a little to large for the barrel. Try it and let us know

If you're using premium paint... what velocity is he shooting at? It might just be a hot gun.

Let's see... check his paint bore size and his barrel bore size using the charts on www.ottersccustoms.com.

Yup, his Basics section (link (http://www.ottersccustoms.com/basics.html)) is something even I refer to once in a while.
