I was planing on buying a new barrel for my Electra and I was wondering what a good one would be...

I want one that is 14 inches or so...

J&J, smartparts barrels, and a stiffi...

Id suggest searching, there are alot more in depth threads about this.

i am personally going with proto. i played with a 12" this past weekend and it was pretty accurate. i would assume that a 14 would be the same. what is your price range?

smart part linears are great. $35 for any size. they are very accurate and quiet. My brother, friend and i all use them.

Well I've used various barrels. Boomsticks, UL's,AA, Progressives etc. I've liked them all. Infact, I really dont care what barrel as long as its not passed 14".

If you want cheap, but good barrels, check out J+J's. ;)

id go with a j&j, they're cheap, accurate, and they pretty much clean themselves out if u get a barrel break

I rock. Going with the J+J was a good idea. ;)

hows the dye ultra light has anyone tried it?

The UL is great as well as the Stiffi. Though i do think those barrels are overkill. I'd rather just suggest the better cheaper barrel that has a good bang for your buck.

Those would probably be the SmartParts Progressive/Teardrop, J&J Ceramics, or the CP one piece.

Idealy anything more than 12" will just need more air to push the ball. I do prefer the 14" though.

i use the CP 1 piece 14" and love it

I agree with bullet, the 1piece 14" CP barrels are pretty nice.
The paintball shop I frequent also talks highly of the J&J. So I'd say either a J&J or CP, just depends which one you like the looks of more.
