Hey guys just wondering which paint you guys use with the stock Pilot ACS barrel? I know spyder's are usually a middle sized barrel, and balls like the strykers just fall strait through. I used another ball the other day that my buddy had laying around that was a 2 color shell, and it demolished 4-5 balls in the barrel, after I checked the size they were friggin huge in my barrel and wouldn't even slide through without shoving it down with something lol.

Anyways, which paint is the best match for the stock spyder barrels? Also should I be looking at a certain kinda ball because of Auto? Thanx guys

i always use draxxus whitebox (works), and dbx (chops). ive used the stcok pilot barrel b4. dont use dbx, monster balls or any rainbow. they all chop. whitbox paint is fine.


auto doesnt matter.

Ok I guess instead of auto I meant like higher speed firing usually calls for a thicker ball, so wondered if any of the guys who fire the crap outta their guns use a certain ball. I'm reading that Draxxus Inferno is made for faster guns and is a thicker shelled ball. My buddy's use the Midnight and love them.

How about size? anyone Match up with the stock barrels and see what fits best?

srry, dont have stock pilot barrel anymore. i do have an electra '05 acs barrel, an old xtra barrel, a spyder victor barrel, and an sp linear barrel. if i were you i would compare to the electra barrel. it did the test with: stryker, draxxus whitebox (blue and yellow), recon, procaps x-ball bronze, silver dbx and purple dbx.
key: 1= falls through barrel- bad. 2= goes through barrel easily- good. 3= too big- gets stuck or doesnt go through easily- bad.
results:

electra acs:
whitebox- 1
stryker- 1
purple dbx- 1
silver dbx- 1
x-ball- 1
recon- 2
blue whitebox- 2

sp linear:
x- ball- 1
stryker- 1
recon- 2
silver dbx- 1
purple dbx- 1
yellow whitebox- 1
blue whitebox- 2

xtra:
recon- 2
purple dbx- 3
blue whitebox- 2
others- 1

victor:

blue whitebox- 2
recon- 3
procaps- 1
stryker- 1
purple dbx- 1
silver dbx- 1
yellow whitebox- 1
