Best longrange barrel for the 2011 Rail?

I recently got a new rail, and was wondering what barrel would be best for long range shots? I play primarily woodsball. I know some may think i shouldnt have got a rail to play woodsball but i did. (i was told not to put a rocking trigger and a 20" j&j on a spyder rodeo for woodsball too) but i owned them with that setup so im gunna go out on a limb with this one too.

Im focused primarily on shot quality, but i would still like it to be somewhat appealing on my all black rail.

Thanks.

Any quality 14 inch or 16 inch barrel will do great. CustomProducts one piece barrels are the best cost to performance ratio out there. They are only around 35 dollars and they are high end quality.

any barrel over 10 inches does not add to your accuracy or distance, get a nice low bore barrel and you should a good consistent shot, but the distance you paintball going to travel at set FPS is going to be the same, barrel will not affect your range

I know a little about bore size but im not sure i understand. My j&j 20" shoots way more accurate than my stock spyder 12". Youre saying that the j&j probably has a smaller bore size and the legnth has nothing to do with the accuracy?

I was looking into the newer rifled barrels, and the apex2 system, would the rifling help like in a standard firearm? And the apex seems to have great reviews so im assuming it would have about the same performance on a PR as it does on a tippman or a spyder?

Any smooth, straight and clean barrel at any length will be just as accurate and get the same range so long as they are all shooting 300 fps.

COugh APEX Cough. IT will add range due to back spin.
