For someone that says he plays for one of the best teams in KY and that you've been playing for 6 years you don't sound like you know what you're talking about. I think you need to learn how to aim or buy better paint and stop blaming your barrel.

i know 4 people with bt barrels and they are some of the most accurate barrels ive ever seen, i have a jj ceramic and its the poo. i think either your gun needs some upgrade or you are a horrible shot. or maybe you just feel like bashin good barrels.

I use a J&J barrel that came with my Tac-One. It's pretty good, you know.

I think you need to learn to aim.

the barrel makes no difference in accuracy i have a 30 dollar proto barrel and i can be accurate all you need is to get a good barrel to paint match and practice snapshooting and accuracy drills in order to get accurate with it
this poast weekend a buddy of mine let me try out his ego i was able to figure out where the shots went and take it from there its all abou being comfy with your equipment

- TIPPMANN 16'' BARRELL
- COCKER BARRELLS

- walmart 14'' orion barrell j/k - NOT

i meant to say -BARRELLS TO CONSIDER-


Sorry man, but I can't take this post seriously. First of all, the spelling and formatting you used, but I won't go into that. Second, it's ok to state your opinion on something (EX: I do not l ike the J&J Ceramic barrel because....), but it's not ok to post that something sucks or post that something is not good without giving proper reasoning.

Barrels are meant to increase accuracy (with good paint to match) and noise for the most part, so if you are going to post your opinion on a barrel, be specific and explain the problems you had with them instead of listing them off and adding a different synonym of "sucked" each time.

Not to mention that J&J's are very popular and respected barrels. For $30, they are awesome barrels and many people love theirs. Also, what is a Cocker barrel? Please don't tell me you meant threading because almost every barrel on the market comes with the option for Cocker threading.

Dye ultralites are great barrels but in no way are they under rated...

My Teardrop is awesome!! I really think you gave these barrels bad names because you just used bad paint or a blender for a marker!!!
Either that or you can't aim!! :)

This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is mine.
PM Me if you want to know why my signature is legal...Its actually the most reported thing on the forum these days -Tenacious

BT Barrels are not bad at all, in fact, in my experience they're quite good. I use a Hybrid J&J Ceramic 18" with an Apex Tip now, but I've used most of those barrels in the past. Here's how to really review them.


The BT Apex is real nice, it has incredible functions, but its stock barrel is a very poor Paint to Bore match, so the best thing you can do is switch it onto a better barrel. The added range is real fun, Its much fun to run out on the field shouting, "You can't hit me, but I can hit you!" and gogging them as they run up.

Twister Barrel, used it for a month, it was one of the quieter barrels I've used, it had very good accuracy, I borrowed it so I didn't know the price, can't believe its only about 60 bucks, I expected it to be a 120+ dollar barrel. Its too shiny for my tastes, being a mil-simmer, but it was a nice loaner.

Flatline for the 98 Custom, I used it for about half a year, veeerrryyyy good barrel system, kinda annoying to set up, it has the hardest installation of any barrel system on the market, and if you screw it up it'll mess your shots up, but it performs quite well when done right. Nice for mil-simmers, its kinda bulky, but no more so than my X36 shroud so I guess I don't mind.

Flatline for the X7, once again, I borrowed it for about 2 months, just checking it out. I'm not a big fan of how it looks, although its not as long and strange as the other flatline series, its still kinda strange. I can't say I noticed much of a difference, although it might have been just me, but it sounded much louder than the 98 custom or A5. Roughly the same range and pattern of shots.

Do you have something against Awesomeness? The J&J is quite possibly the best series of barrels available to those of us not willing to fork over 200 Clams for a high end barrel system. The edge kit is a gift from the gods, forged by Thor's hammer in Vahalla, shined and polished by Osiris, who can't play much lately as he's missing one of his arms again, tested by Zeus, Who is a Tippmann fan by the way, and then sent to the earth to be copied and sent all over for us mortals to enjoy ourselves with. Thats right, its so cool it penetrated into three ancient religions, and earned the approval of each of their major deities. Its self cleaning, had good range, good pattern of shots, and you can get them for anywhere between 25 - 60 bucks depending on if its used or not.


Thanks for reading.

I would have to disagree regarding the j&j barrels. I have owned many and really thought highly of them. The best thing about them for me is the fact that, if you bust in the barrel, just a few additional shots will clean it right out with no problem. I think they are great barrels.
