View Full Version : need help deciding

I need about a $30 barrel for my sonix. I'm not including a J&J because it would not match my marker and I'm not getting a really expensive barrel because I don't play that much.

Progressive or Tear Drop

Progressive and Linear are basically the same thing.

the 32* whisper is very quiet but that's it. it'll shoot better than stock but not as good as other barrels that are out there for the same price. i would recommend the Custom Products 1 piece which shoots alot better then the whisper.

I used to own a Progressive and loved it and have shot a Teardrop both were great.

I have owned a CP one peice. It shot ropes, wasn't load and was easily cleaned on the rare barrel break. And i think the look BA

Id say CP one piece or progressive. Ive used both with great results, but its up to you on what style matches your marker. Both had rare barrel breaks and shot ropes for me, but its whichever you like better IMO.

progressive/linear (pro looks better but is 5$ more) shoots ropes

I dunno if its true or not, but I would have expected the progressive to do better than the linear just because of the porting. If you do get a progressive, make sure that its the 06-07 model. Its supposedly teflon impregnated- like the J&J ceramic. That was the main issue I had with my Teardrop, while breaks were rare, you couldn't ever hope to shoot through them, hopefully they fixed that with the new progressive.

if progressive and linear are the same why is the progressive more expensive?
