Pros: adds great range to youre gun, silencer look.
Cons: sometimes chops
I have the AC 18 inch apex on my reflex rail. This is a great barrel for anyone on anymarker! It adds great range to youre gun and the balls dont bounce they still break at long distance. Also the curve shots around bunkers do work.

CON!!!: because of the black finish on the arrel if you rub the barrel on cement the paint wears easily my freind had one and while installing a shroud he scratched his. So you can still role in the mud but done hit it on sharp objects.

I had an Apex 2 on my X7 Phenom and was simply amazed at the difference, it was night and day! It allows you to extend the range of your shots, curve or dip your shots. Just make sure you run quality paint through it or you will have some issues.

Combine the Apex 2 with a Lapco BigShot barrel and you have a deadly combo.

This barrel does what it claims and added the ability to bend your shots. This is quiet fun if your not playing to seriously but the price in accuracy is great. For woods ball i would greatly recommend this barrel but it has no place on the airball field.

Pros: Shot paint really far
Cons: Vey Inaccurate
I got this to improve my game, but it didn't really help. The bore was so big that when you turned off the apex, you couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. With the Apex on, you had to keep your FPS lower to make sure that the paint doesn't break. So but when you hit someone in a soft place the ball bounced. All in all, it's better than the flatline but it wasn't anything special.

Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Heavy
I bought this barrel for my tm-7 and it looks really nice almost like a scilencer. It doesn't change the sound from the gun compared to my stock barrel. Sometimes when I'm using it it will feel really heavy on the front of the gun. Also a big problem when I push the tab all the way to curve the shot when I would try to bring it back it would push in witch would make it impossible to bring it back also it takes a while to get good at trying to hit targets a lot of practice would be needed to actually hit someone behind a bunker. I wouldn't go into the woods without it.

Empire Battle Tested Apex 2 Barrel I had the first apex and wasnt impressed. This one was a little bit better and if you give the bal the backspin they sort of almost float or glide but its alright if you are shooting streams
