Talking 14" for me.

I have three barrels for my LCD. None of them are made by Dye. After having a boomstick on my RT, I couldn't justify paying that much again.

14" Jacko Infinity
14" J&J Ceramic
12" CP .689

Yup they are all really close in bore size. The Jacko is just slightly larger than the Ceramic which is a bit bigger than the CP. There couldn't be .0015 between the the Jacko and CP. Its enough to cover the paint I shoot.

The Infinity is an amazing barrel. Its a virtually perfect barrel. Plenty of non-ported initial bore. Well ported end with a larger bore. Accurate and quiet.

I like to shoot a 12" Freak. So far it has shot great. I would recommend it highly. Best bang for the buck!

I used to prefer short barrels (and still do for looks) but recently I have found that I aim better with 14 inch and longer barrels.

I prefer 10 or 12" because with longer barrels I am constantly banging the end of my barrel up against my bunker. And I also like short barrels because it lets me fit in tighter to my bunker while snap shooting.

Aahhhhh..... sorta makes sense; more barrel gives the eyes more to align with quickly or something of that nature, eh?

Personally, I have a thing for 10" barrels for both looks and for the sake of practicality behind the bunker... I'm one of those who picked up the habit of having the gun pretty much "pre pointed" at my target before popping out; the smaller the barrel, the tighter I can get, and 4" can make a lot of difference when it comes to how much of my upper body is potentially exposed.

And yeah, the 10" boomstick on my 'Cocker with all the chrome pneumatics up front does look BADASS! :o)

I agree, the 10 inch boomers look the business. I just aim better for some reason with longer sticks.

I hate how they hang off the front of the gun, but what can ya do? I'm more accurate with a longer barrel.

Well, I like the 14" for outdoor woods games and stuff, so I use my Jacko Infinity. But I have a 12" ano'ed Freak tip, which is what I will use MOST of the time. But since I have a 12"tip now, I am getting a 10" tip when I get my Total Freak system, cuz I like the compactness, and already have all the other lengths
