largest one there is for the ul. i think its .692, not too sure. better too big and lose a little accuracy than too smally and break every ball

.692 would probably be perfect. I use a .693 cp barrel and it shoots really well

.689 is a little big more some paint. But then again I have a barrel kit, so...
Sometimes its better to go with a kit even though they are more expensive. But i think a .689 back is the best all around.

i would go between .690 and .693
fits all paint and the etek just tends to keep accuracy up no matter what the bore size.

Save up some extra cash and get a barrel kit.

The basics= Gun, air, loader, Barrel KIT.

The stock barrel for the ETek is a .693. I'd say get .688 UL (since they come in that instead of .689) or maybe a .690 if they make em in that. That way you'd have a barrel for small paint and the stock barrel for everything else. The stock barrel works great. I had a barrel kit till I found out all I would mostly need is 2 barrels. Now I have the stock barrel and a 1 piece Proto barrel (they all come in a .690 size). They shoot just like a UL and are cheaper as well.
And then the Canadiens said, "Lets just ask them nicely to leave. If they don't, well beat em with our hockey sticks."
