Damn why so long? Ive actually seen some sick mini's with 12" and 14" shrouds.

but to answer your question, a 18" shroud is used for a 18" barrel.

At that length it will start to slow the ball down as it leaves the barrel. I wouldn't go over 14 but 16 would be ok.

It's preference though, to a point. If you want to aim higher to compensate then that's your own choice.

In a perfect world, an 18" will only shoot 4 inches farther than a 14". The length of a barrel does NOT determine accuracy or distance, please get that out of your head. A 12" will shoot just as accurate as an 18". It is recommended to choose something between 12" - 16". It just depends on preference and style of play. 14" is the most common.

14" is more than enough.

There is a reason every manufacturers stock barrel is 14"

Well... the least of them do, most of them are 10" or 12" but that could be because it would cost more. Either way you look at it, anything over 16" may start having negative effects,

The only reason that it seems like an 18" barrel shoots further is that the tip of it is 4 inches closer to the target.
