Introducing the all new Carbon Fiber Boomstick™. Players have always desired a barrel with stainless steel precision, but strive to keep their equipment as lightweight as possible. The new Carbon Fiber Boomstick™ now gives players the best of both worlds. Featuring a unique and proprietary stainless steel insert with a carbon fiber outer sleeve, the Carbon Fiber Boomstick™ brings barrel technology to a new level. The special blend of materials allows us to micro hone our barrels to a mirror finish while providing you with a lightweight barrel, lighter than our popular Ultralite Boomstick™.

Dye Precision Carbon Fiber Boomstick Performs like it should. Looks sleek and weighs almost nothing. I like the interchangeable tips, and that was a huge selling point for me to not buy other carbon fiber kits out right now.

Dye Precision Carbon Fiber Boomstick If I had the money, I would put one of these on every gun I own. They're great little barrels, but they're just so expensive!

Pros: Lightweight, looks cool

Overall the barrel is extremely durable and reliable. I found if for some reason a ball chopped that the paint was easily cleaned out of the barrel by shooting a few more rounds. I never really had to squeegee the barrel out after a break. The price seems expensive for what you are getting, but "cool" looks come at a price I suppose. Another solid product by Dye.

Cons: Expensive
As others have mentioned previously these barrels do as advertised, they fire paint and they do so amazingly; while looking great to boot.

My only gripe is that they're not available as single backs, paying $149 at retail for a back and front is a tad much. Luckily I picked mine up nib for $50 less.

Dye Precision Carbon Fiber Boomstick We have had two of these at our field break when diving. Last I checked we have the only two to ever break. But as long as you don't mess up your dive, you should be fine.

In my opinion Dye has always made the best barrels. They are always one of the most expensive but you pay for quality. I've been using dye barrels since 2003 and won't ever use anything else. The Carbon Fiber Dye barrel matches their quality of the Ultralites ive used for years.

Pros: Very Light, Accurate, Self Cleans Well
Cons: Price
I've had my CF Boomstick about a month now, and have shot a couple of case of paint through it, on my '08 Etek 2. I opted for the 15" .688 barrel. The barrel performs flawlessly. It is very accurate, comparing it to a St!ffi (14" .691), Planet Eclipse Shaft 2 (14" .693) and a '06 Smart Parts Freak w/ AA front (14" using .689 insert), on the same marker with the same paint. The control bore is very long on this barrel. It's a full 7 inches compared to 6 inches or less on most other barrels.
As for weight, it is noticably lighter than both the Freak and the Shaft 2. It is only a bit heavier than the St!ffi, though.
I wanted to test for self cleaning so I delibratly cracked a ball and loaded it in. I had already shot 1 3/4 cases of paint with no breaks. As expected the ball broke in the barrel, after 3 shots the marker was shooting accurately again.
Appearance is something very subjective. I think it looks great where others may not. That's up to you. Bottom line, performance is amazing, and I have a hard time faulting this barrel outside of price. I would strongly recommend this barrel to anyone who can afford it.
