I bought the hammerhead bangstixx with the screw on reverse ported muzzle and 3 fins.

first off, quality is very apparent as alot of time and money went into making these barrels.

Now how it fires. when testing this barrel I used three types of paint, cheap rps and some marballizers I also had a bag of some really old stuff. I started out shooting the old stuff really wanting to see how it would handle it. from 20 yards it wasn't bad at all, i would say about 7/10 hit the mark (a milk jug) and the ones that didn't weren't very far away. then I wanted to see how it would react to broken paint. so I broke a ball in the barrel, coated all sides with crap and continued to fire, but amazingly it was fairly similar to the last test and only the first ball shot deviated alot. I then backed it up to about 50 yards and found that the spiraling effect becomes more apparent and it seemed to go really straight. this helped alot with first shots as I was able to intuitively aim the gun. most shots landed on or near the target. next was rps not good paint but hammerhead took it and shot it just fine, at full auto it looked like a long piece of rope extending to the target, very accurate! then marballizers same thing. I even tried to change to a wrong fin size and it shot them fairly well.

Verdict: 9

Now it was game time! this thing on the field is killer. in a woodsball setup i was making shots I never dreamed of making! if people were hanging there feet out for too long it was pretty much a guarantee that I was going to hit them from 20 to even 100 yards. In fact it started getting down right ridiculous, and instead of bunkering people for my kills I found myself right at home picking people off from long distances.

Verdict:10

This has allowed me to become a threat almost anywhere on the field and isn't that the point? i can't wait to play again with this thing.
