Perhaps it's just me, but these instantly reminded me of Deathstix.

EDIT: Yep, just search online for Deathstix. They look nearly identical to me, and the bore sizes are the same as well.

Well since Deathstix are no more, it's probably the same guys trying to get back in. Or it could be the mfr trying to get in. Who knows.

Yes, very much so. Even in the humidity 110% our paint still isn't normally over a .684, .686

With a tiny bit of research, it looks like this group (Dead Serious USA) somehow got a hold of the Deathstix design.

I hope they do better than Paintball Assassins did with it.

Edit: holy crap, the 1-piece has a .700" bore.

LOL, you guys do know that most paintball two piece barrels have tips that are .700. That's what it is advertising.

Dye, Pepper Sticks, Emipire, Freak to name a few have .700 tips

I do agree that the bigger Bore Sizes are a probably not going to be used as much, they should offer smaller bore sizes (.680, .683 following their sizing) as a separate kit or replace the .695.

I actually got some paint a few weeks ago was a perfect fit for a .695. Luckily I had a random barrel from 2005 rolling around in my bag that was the correct size.

The origional Death Stix owner probably had to rebrand because no one would buy their garbage after they tried trademarking the MacDev name after MacDev had been selling pb stuff for years...

hey, stupid is as stupid does.

I have a feeling this barrel system will get driven into the ground.

Those bores are as uselessly short as a CCM's.

Deathstix: ****ty Chinese copy of Sly if memory servers. Also run by a company of idiots (they also came out with blood red paint that they called something stupid like "187 balls" or "killer balls" if my memory is still holding up)

This: ****ty Chinese copy of Sly still with useless bore sizes.

PASS.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
