hey guys thanks for all your paint help before, i went paintballing and had a ton of fun. i think im definitely going to buy another barrell. i'm thinking a jj ceramic either 14 or 16 inch. can anyone tell me which theyd recomend and why? or if it even really matters all that much?

I'd go with the 14 inch length doesn't really matter

The functional length of the barrel is about the first 8 inches or so. After that you only need a bit more for accuracy.

If you are going to play tight then a 12" would be great. If you are going to use the barrel to push aside bunkers/trees and brush then a 16" barrel is nice. For 90% of the play most of us do a 14" is just right.

Im with bamf it really only matters how exactly you play. 14 and 16 are both good so I would sugest taking his advice and choosing based on your game style, not what we say is "best"

J&J ceramic 16", the one you can shoot the paint out of its a good barrel but not as good as the aero twis I got, the aero twist is way more accurate

you will get better accuracy with paint to bore matching. no aero twisty apex rubber bumper bunny things help. J&Js seem to be pretty good barrels. I like mine. Consistency will also help with ball on ball placement. Tune you marker as well as possible. Polish internals.... bla bla... hpa vs co2... bla
