I am not a fan of Furious barrels so I would definitely say Ultralite. If you are open to suggestions I recommend the Disruptive Deathtouch.

Personally, I say Ultralight just because of the slightly longer control bore.

Disruptive Deathtouch imo.

It weighs in at 100 grams for the 15" and 95 grams for the 13" plus it has an 8" control bore. Nice step porting, etc. Great barrel.

I've been sticking to ultralites and boomsticks for years, I have so far not seen a single barrel that have outperformed them..

Anything with a control bore longer than 7 inches will work great. After that, the only thing to consider is the amount of porting, since this will affect sound signature.

why are boomsticks more expensive than UL?

The inside of the barrel back on a CF boom is lined with stainless steel, which is slipperier than aluminium, so it allows easier acceleration of the paint.... at least that's what Dye says.

I have both I am not a fan of the furious at all control bore just doesnt seem long enough. Even if I bore my paint correctly with the furious my .688 UL just seems to shoot better no matter the paint size

I am a big fan of the Furious barrel, it's the most efficient barrel i have and it shoots straight as an arrow. I dont understand those haters. UL is good barrels too, but if i had to choose i would go Furious, no doubt.

Let me add that i have had several UL's and i have several Furious now.
