Default New barrel for my 05' spyder pilot

Hey all. Im new to paintballing and really love it(and aint half bad!). So more to the point. I have the spyder pilot acs 05' with normal c02 and the 12 volt revy. I was playing on saturday and realized it could shoot straight for its life! I need a new barrel for 30$(im a cheap skate). Does anybody have any suggestions for a new barrel? Please include link to site. Thanks!

I was thinking about a j&j ceriamic or a smart parts tear drop 12 to 14 inches. I heard that the j&j breaks alot of paint due to the small bore size(says it cleans it self), is this true?

Here is the link

And for the Teardrop

Are there better barrels(30 bucks or under LOL)?

smart parts progressive and teardrop = about the same thing and are equally good for the price

Personally I love my J&J. It shoots great on my 05ACS. If I use crappy paint, the least expensive from the field, I break, but honestly it seems to break more in the gun than in the barrel. If I ever get some paint in the barrel, 1-2 shots of air cleans it up beautifully, i rarely squeegie in the game. Once or twice I've gone back after the game to my table and ran a pull through to find a buncha paint, but I couldnt' remember being upset at the accuracy. My favorite economy paint to use so far is Diablo Heat. I can get it for $43 a case or $38 if i buy 5 AT the field! According to PBnation, that's about .688-.689 and a J&J .688-.691.

And the best part is you can get it for $30 at AV.

Lots of bore sizes of paint and a few barrels at PBnation

i'd probably get the teardrop because of it's bigger bore. It would let more paint be able to go through with no problem

J&J's are good...had 3 in my lifetime. You need to use .687-.685 bored paint though. Scorch runs decent through it but not marbs or um...forget the name of the blue ball...

If you look at Otter's site the J&J Ceramic is .688-.691 and the Teardrop is .688. My son has the SP Teardrop and I have the J&J. I like the J&J much better. I haven't found a paint that it can't shoot well. Even cheapo' Brass Eagle. The Teardrop seams finicky about paint size. In the looks department, Smartparts Teardrop all the way. Accuracy, J&J all the way.
