When I first got this barrel I was dissappointed because my shots were all over the place, but then I found out that the paint I was using was small bore. Now that I have switched to some larger bore paint, I am thrilled with the preformance of this barrel. It will not improve your range like a flatline, but it is quieter than a stock barrel and (most importantly) is very accurate at mid-long ranges.

Sidenote: my teardrop is 14", but my friend uses a 12" and it is just as accurate as mine, so save yourself a couple of inches if you are a dagger/frontman.

edit: Ugh, this post used to be ugly. Just cleaning up my old, "newbish" posts.

my friend got this 14 inch a lil while back, and I was skeptical a t first cuz I'm mad biased for my twister. but then we went and were playing in some fields/woods and i made a break for a small tree and he started firing, I luvkily made it to the tree but he kept firing and I could hear the air just being moved but the ball as it was coming towards me. no more skepticism.
Fighting was the only thing I was ever good at, But at least I always fought for what I believed in.

with the teardrop i have noticed if you take 1 shot at a time slowly it wont be all that accurate. But now if you shoot rapidly say at least 5 hsot sin a row they willl start being dead on. i think it may deal with how it is ported or its shape but i hope that helps.

it's true that the barrel will be very accurate while firing rapidly, but the "one at a time" accuracy is pretty good as well (for me at least).
Bottomline: great barrel, maybe the best in the price range.

As far the the OSOK accuracy, i got a guy at about 130ft OSOK during a night game. Sneaky son of a gun was gonna go up the creek and into my normal spot. Silly wabbit. Now my spotter is buying it because i got a flattie XD.

nice shot. i'm telling you guys don't go out and spend $100+ on a barrel, this one is just as good in my opinion.

J&J Ceramic is a better barrel for the price IMHO. I had a teardrop on a spyder and was not impressed with it at all. I also tryed one on my A5 and not impressed. The J&J and the Lapco were both more accurate. And both cost around the same. Only advantage the teardrop has over the Lapco is it is quieter. Other than that I would go Lapco again.

I was tied when I bought my teardrop between it and the JJ Ceramic, but in the end I (obviously) went with the teardrop. I havn't used the ceramic since then, but if it is better than my teardrop, that is impressive. Damn, now you are making me regret my purchase!!!

Hey if your teardrop is working for you then congrats. You must of got the luck of the draw. I have tried them on 3 different guns and was not impressed with them. Kind of a shame since when SP first started up they made a really good barrel. I just think their overall Quality Control has slipped over the years. Some people get a good one,, some don't. Just so happens I rarely see a teardrop that shoots as well as my Ceramics.

My wife has a Teardrop for her A5. I used to have one and now have a J&J Ceramic. After seeing the J&J in operation, she now has a J&J on order. We figure the Teardrops will make fine backups.

the first barrel i ever used on my a-5 was a teardrop. i didn't like its performance. every bore size ball i would use would still go screwy.

Hey, I know this is a late reply, but Zap Rec is basicaly the only thing I shoot through my Teardrop and it works just fine.

I just bought a teardrop out of recomendation from my friend. I am decently happy with it but i was expecting more. I've only shot draxxus blaze through it so far. My question is what paint makes the barrel get the best performance?

I bought a 14" Teardrop a few months ago and IMHO it's a great barrel. I shoot Zap Rec usually and every ball I shoot is on target or maybe a few inches off. However, in the 3 months I've been playing with this barrel, I've chopped ONLY one ball.
