Lapco's are great barrels too (pricey for kits).
Deadly Wind carbon fibers with the use of Freak inserts work very well too. (I use one on my ION and sometimes toss that barrel on my TAC ONE)
A Stiffi will be lighter weight. With a single Stiffi barrel you're stuck with one bore size, but I seldom need different bore sizes. That may not be a concern of yours (roll outs). The Stiffi will be quieter a bit over the Palmer. Stiffi's are accurate...I've never been amazed by them.
Palmer brass with a smooth, polished bore are very accurate. You can pay a bit more for double venting which will make it a quieter barrel. Brass weighs more than carbon fiber (duh!) lol. Palmers great barrel, but comes with a price if you want it customized to your wants/needs. Widgets are great for close bolt markers.
to me both real good barrels, but over rated a bit.
I've shot a DYE Ultralight for the last 5 years or more. Before that Smart Parts & Lapco barrels for the most part.
I've owned most of the barrels out there on the market too.

You will find that the marker might be loud but only because you are the one shooting it.
At 5 yards out I've seen guys look around wondering where my shot came from. When the business end is pointed at you, the cockers can be hard to pick up with a bunch of loud markers going off all over the place.
As for accuarcy, anything NOT from the factory will generally shoot better. The kit gets the added bonus of juuusst a lil more accuracy and the nicety of no roll outs.
Having fired blowbacks and closed bolts (Autocockers) there is something about the marker NOT being a blowback (like a tippmann) that makes it accurate with just about any aftermarket barrel you put on it.
By the way, the shot from 5 yards back. No ghillie. I even jumped up and moved behind a tree real fast. His buddy behind him was the only one who spotted me. I then set up a killbox with a friend of mine and ended his game.
Not bad for no ghillie I think
