A J&J is a very good barrel manufacture, and the Ceramic is no exception. Especially for the price! Cons are simply that it isn't quite as good as the extremely high-end barrels like DYE Ultralites and Freaks.

Of course, if you have different bore sizes. Proper paint to bore match is better for accuracy than you'd believe. Personally, I don't care that much for accuracy, and a single bore (one pieces work fine, I have a 2 piece Ultralite, with only a large bore) works fine for me. If you do choose for only one bore, make sure it's large so you can use it for every type of ball.

Freaks FTW, but they're pretty expensive
