many people will say the J&J Ceramic, but I use the Night Stick and I really like it.

I've got the Proto 1 piece and the J&J Ceramic S2. I really like both of them. If I had to choose and go with only one barrel, I'd go with the J&J. They are both really decent barrels and extremely easy to clean. As far as accuracy, well, it depends on the paint-to-barrel match.

Well, I've used/owned all of those at one time, and I have to say that most are pretty decent barrels for spyders (I'm assuming this is for a spyder?)
The J&J is not a favorite of mine, though on this forum, it is with most everyone else. It's light, nice looking, and quiets your gun down quite a bit.
The Proto 1 piece was AWESOME. It shot straight, and was the only barrel to totally, and I mean TOTALLY, clean itself with one shot after a break. My friend used it on his cocker and it was amazing. Other than ugly, it was a great barrel. (This was the one I had to vote for, though it was close with the Night Stick!)
The Night Stick was the first aftermarket barrel I ever bought. To this day, I think it was underrated because it was a great barrel. It shot straight, silenced my spyder quite a bit, and looked good on it.
I'm not a fan of the Whisper - to me it's ugly, isn't any quieter than the Night Stick, seemed heavier than all those barrels and I just didn't care for it.

id just say save up for a better barrel, you wont be mad later.
if you can, get a freak barrel kit
i saw one here go for like 55 used, which isnt much higher than your price range.
but if you dont want to spend any more money, id go with the J&J, alot of people here seem like they like them

I love my J&J Ceramic. I wish they had a barrel kit for the ceramics. I would buy it. The inside is so slick and nothing sticks to it... its so wonderful for those without eyes and whom chop alot. One shot with another paintball and the barrel is cleaned.

they do have a kit...
J&J Edge kit.

Bamf is right.
But you get more problems than just paint in the barrel when you chop. Paint in the breach and the feedneck can suck....
You could save up for the base of a barrel kit. Like buy the .693 unitec, and a spyder back, and add extra bores as you need/can afford them.

I have the J&J Edge kit - didn't know they actually made one for the ceramic. The kit is pretty decent, they just have weird sized backs - where you would normally have a .681, it's a .682 or something. Been awhile since I looked at it since I don't use the spyder threads anymore...

more opinions please

i had a JJ and i liked a lot. i know ppl who have the proto one piece and its a nice barrel. but if anythinng id just save up and get something nice like a ultralite kit or a freak kit. the advantage to the freak kit is a lot of ppl have htem so u can borrow inserts and not used fronts off ppl. but ultralite is the way to go if your not dependent on ppl.
