picked up a dye boomstick (with tip) for $25. you cant beat this price.

its a great barrel to have in your bag. shoots nice. on the heavy side compared to carbon fiber or the regular ultralites, but still a nice barrel.
with everything going lighter, a boomstick helps balance out a marker, especially if you have either a steel tank, or just a huge tank on the back.

look around. you can find people just about giving these things away.

I got hooked up back when these first came out for $80 from Unique sports in Anaheim. My stock barrel had no porting and was rather loud with a lot of kick. The Boomstick is quiet, and greatly reduced kick. The accuracy with Marballizers is ball on ball, and I can get kills through the smallest openings because of this. First shot can make or break an ambush, and this bad boy can get the job done with ease. I have used it for almost a decade now, and it's as accurate as the day I bought it. Now it's on an electric cocker taking it to new levels. I actually bought my new marker based on fitting this barrel on it. Butter.........

I got this barrel back in the day when i had to pay 120 to get one, i was excited to throw it on my pm6 and mow. I loved this barrel back then although now it seems pointless, all of the new uls shoot better than the tit. and are much lighter...
Very accurate for the type of accuracy performance it was matched with when release but very outdated now.
This think was like a rock when i used it, never had scratches really and nothing ever effected my shot group to much.
Overall i do not reccomend this totournament players nowadays but it was quite the contender in its time.

I've owned 2-3 of these barrels by trade or purchase. They're good and usually perfect for my setups, but(and this is nitpicky) I'm still not sold on the style. I've shot them mainly on my Quests and they didn't work well enough with the flow of the gun in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, that and "the non-freak insert" thing are my only issues, its a great barrel for the money... Just not for me.

Pros: Durable, very smooth bore
Cons: Heavy by todays standards
This barrel came with my 2k2 Autococker when I bought it way back in 2003/2004. The barrel is one piece, with a stainless steel back and aluminum front (or tip). The smoothness of the bore is excellent (seeing as mine was like new on the inside) and the performance when shooting through breaks is very good.

With that being said, there are a few things that need to be looked at:
  • By today's standards, the barrel is a bit on the heavy side. However, the performance of the barrel in terms of shooting and durability is so good that I overlook the weight issue completely
  • Dye does not make the "Boomstick" anymore. The closest that they make and sell now are Dye UL's which are all aluminum, and are 2 piece now IIRC.

Overall, this barrel is the one I will reach for first. It's been reliable, consistant, and to me it feels sturdy and beefy enough to earn it's title as "Boomstick". I use it on my Autococker and Invert Mini, with no complaints.

Even after all these years, this is the barrel I compare others to.

Dye Precision Boomstick Shot great, looked great, just dont drop it on anything soft. Get used to barrel tip wear if you plan on diving.
