are there J&J barrels with that spinning barrel the electra has?

I'm currently running a CO2, should i upgrade to a 16'' barrel?

Anothe question, as for spring kits, there are couple of grades for it. light to heavy. Which grade is the stock electra spring?

I can't really understand what your asking for the first question. Are you playing woodsball or speedball? I wouldn't get anything over 14". Anything longer makes it harder to tuck into a bunker and peep around the corner. And it uses more air.

inside the electra barrel, there are threads inside it that curves. i suppose these threads inside make the ball spin?

stock springs are usually heavy....

but yes beavers right, id suggest a 14 inch barrel tops, 16 is kinda long...

no, threads on the barrel? what do you mean?

Riflings??? Maybe that's what it is? If it's rifllings, then it will make the ball spin

if stock springs are usually heavy, why would i need a spring kit?

i just want to increase the fire power

but you know, i went to PB this weekend, when i shoot long distance, the ball curls to the right...how do i fix this

I haven't heard much about the Dye excel barrel, but I have heard ALOT of good things about the J & J. I would go with the J & J. Or even better, get a barrel kit

freak barrel kit ftw....

paint bore to barrel bore match gets the balls more accurate

Smart Parts?? You posted a link of a Dye excel?? Do you mean a freak kit?? I would go with the freak kit over the j & j.

I'm not sure about that one. I would say J & J. Have you looked on www.pbreview.com? They have reviews of everything you'll need

Of the Smart Parts barrels (depending on which one you meant) vs J&J, I would choose the All American over the J&J barrel (had both, liked the All American MUCH more - not a fan of the J&J myself.) Now, if you're talking other barrels by Smart Parts, not sure I'd make the same decision.

Kit-wise: I'd choose the Freak/Freak Jr. over the J&J Edge kit (I have both, and while both are VERY good, the Freak, in my opinion wins out.)

Just my .02...

this thread should be in the electra section.. but yeah i had the sp progressive barrel on my electra and it was ok , if i was you i would save some money and get a SP freak jr kit. I have a freak kit now and it is awesome , i havent gotten ANY barrel breaks since ive started using it.

Ehhh Inserts FTL..... IMO barrel kit is your best bet.... But when you buy one you dont have to buy new...

You could shop around PBN and find a used full pipe kit for like 60 bucks...
