Default Re: New Barrel

I wondered about that for the longest time. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE, was talking how great the barrel was. I even thought I might have gotten a fluke, but everyone told me it wasn't.

Xball is REALLY small though. I think heat is about the same, maybe a little bigger.

I was tempted to get a NS once... Is it really that good?

The Night Stick is a very good barrel. If you're planning on sticking with a Spyder the All A is an awesome barrel, but costly if you aren't planning on using it long term. If you switch guns you only have to buy a new back as opposed to an entirely new barrel. I've seen the J&J in action, and I've never been that impressed. That could be because I'm partial to my Freak and the All American that I had before that.

Just out of curiousity, what's the configuration of your Sonix? A new barrel may not quiet it down much.

I have it stock with a 12oz CO2 tank and VL200 hopper. This is the first upgrade and an electro trigger will probably be next.

And will a 14" barrel really help with the accuracy, or will it just waste air?

14 inches it the perfect length to get... simply becasue its not to the point of were you are wasting air due to too much resistance but it is also good becasue of the lenght which is good to lean into the bunkers with.

I think vike missed the Whisper barrel... I would actuly recomend it to you.. becasue i like my whisper over my NS and only this week did i retired it after purchasing a Empire kit....

No, I never really liked the whisper barrel. I didn't think it was as quiet as my Night Stick, and I also didn't like the way it looked in comparison. But, again, that's just me!

My bro has a whisper, its pretty good, although his bolt hasn't got an angled inlet, it looks rather like a turbulence fillable spot, but it still shoots decently accurate with heat, which was too small for it.
