!!!!barrel question!!!!

I'm in the market for a new Barrel, cause i don't seem to be getting everything i am looking for out of the Barrel kit's i use. I currently own a geo2 with a FULL shaft4 boost Barrel kit, but i mainly use my Dynasty championship edition FULL CP Barrel kit, which i really like, but isn't performing as great as i want it to, but it perform's better than my shaft4 kit! But im in the market for a new Barrel or Barrel kit, so was wondering what other people's opinion's were? I hear ALOT about the Dye CF Barrel, or was thinking of just ordering a FULL Dye ultralight kit, or also heard sly barrel's were GREAT barrel's (like the infamous or rockstar barrel's with the extra back's), or the deadlywind CF front's for the shaft4 Barrel back's, or the deadlywind CF Barrel with the freak inserts(but never heard great thing's about freak inserts, actually heard that they weren't good and actually have broke ball's with the aluminum back's) or now there are the GOG stainless steel freak kit, or a regular freak kit (but don't kno what's better, the ALL American, or freak front), and ALL other barrel's!! So basically if i could get some input on barrel's, and other people's opinion's on what they think is the best Barrel out there or what Barrel they use, also if people are having better results with single or two piece barrel's, i would greatly appreciate it, espically before i drop another $170-$250 on a Barrel kit that would have been a bad buy,lol!!
Thank's Alot!!

I really like my Sly classic kit (short control bore) and I imagine the Sly diesel kit (long control bore) would be great also.

Just got a Shift kit as well and I am very pleased with it.

I've tried em all. this is what i have, similar to you. i have the cp dynasty kit with 4backs, i have the one that came with my csl, and i have my Dw fibur with a freak. THEY ALL WORK THE SAME> all my guns, dynasty print geo 2.1, CSL, and my NT11 all shoot ropes no matter what barrel i use on em. i have tried sly and techt and find that a longer boar seems to work great.

What are you wanting that your current barrels aren't doing for you? If its accuracy then that has a lot more to do with the quality of the paint.

I just want to see what other people are shooting and what they think of their barrel's. I really LOVE my barrel's, espically my Dynasty CP barrel's, i just hear soooo much about either deadlywind carbon fibur shaft4 Barrel tips, or the Dye CF barrel's, even the ultralight Barrel kit, also does CF barrel's actually make a difference? Cause so many people talk about the difference a CF Barrel make's so basically is it true? Also the normal Barrel front is .70 so are CF front's that much different, so would the deadlywind CF Barrel front's really make a difference? So my question really is, is there a better Barrel out there than what i already have? I have had freak kit's which i NEVER liked, evil pipe kits, i found the ultralight to be almost as accurate as my Dynasty CP kit if not the same, and VERY true on what paint you shoot, and my barrel's HATE imperial, lol, but we get it insanely cheap (even though i like RPS better!!), so i really didn't explain myself better, basically is there a Barrel or Barrel kit that is good w/ ALL paint (cause i kno my shaft4 kit would chew up DXS gold Hellfire, and my CP and shaft4 kit hates imperial, depends on the weather w/ 4 star but 1&2 star just is horrible paint and for some reason marb's??, i found Gi 3 star, DXS silver, and RPS premium, ALL-STAR and evil/ultra-evil (but evil has to be FRESH, and i HATE valken, their NEW redemption suck's plus it's PURPLE, u can't EVEN see wen your laning off the break, NEVER mind seeing them coming at you!!) So really want to kno if there is a better Barrel on paint, better self-cleaning, and is CF really that much better than a non CF barrel (basically is a Dye CF Barrel that cost's $160 for 1 Barrel, actually better than my shaft4 kit that cost $150 for two back's and 16inch front. And better than my DYNASTY CP Barrel kit that was $170?) Just cause they do say u get wat u pay for, which if that's the case the Dye CF Barrel should be the BEST out there, sorry so long, just haven't EVER USED a CF Barrel, so have no clue wat the big difference is.

Carbon fiber is more of a lightweight and looks thing. Really doesn't do anything performance wise. IMO the Dye CF barrel is a waste of money. For the same price you can get a Deadlywind Fibur barrel with the full freak insert set. If I were to be looking for a barrel kit then that is what I would go for but my 09's shaft 3 kit and my CSL's shaft 4 kit work perfectly fine.

TOTALLY different than the CP barrel's, the bore is longer, the front of the Barrel is straight (not like the original where it is ribbed), also MUCH MORE porting than the regular CP barrel's, so they are WAY MORE quiet than the regular CP barrel's, also the Dynasty championship edition only come in a two piece Barrel/Barrel kit. And it is the BEST Barrel i HAVE EVER used, the ultralight is the only Barrel that is, IMO just as good, i was just wondering about CF barrel's b/c i never used one, so didn't kno the difference, but the DYNASTY CP Barrel is totally different than the regular CP Barrel's!!

Thank's, and i'd personally go with the DYNASTY CP kit, cause one, they are INCREDIBLE barrel's, two, they have a small kit with 3 back's and 14in tip for like $150 i think at ansgear.com (the cheapest place you'll find them, even cheaper than CP'S website, which last i knew was down, then the FULL kit is 5 back's and two front's, a 14 & 16 inch for only like $170 from ansgear.com, that's the one i got, and i own a Dynasty geo2 and it matches the marker perfect!!) Cause they are annodized the same way they annodize planeteclipse marker's, so if u own a PE marker the Barrel matches perfectly!! The ONLY downfall is it dosen't come with a case, cause they were $20 BRAND NEW, And CP couldn't find ANYONE to make the cases for that price, so either go on eBay or here and you'll find one easy!!!! Cause i started a thread on here (PbNation), and i had many people with offers, but what's good is they are only $20 BRAND new, and they made many different styles but i wanted the foam inserts and not much longer i came across a bnib foam style case and only paid $15 s/h included!! Also even if you order it from anywhere else than CP and on a back or front the color is off, just send cp a pic of the barrel's and they'll send u whatever the part was that was off color (front, back, etc.) For FREE, and you don't have to send the other part back (so what i did was sell the messed up color piece's to a friend for cheap) plus u don't have to pay s/h or anything!!!! They have AWESOME customer service!! So i'd go with the DYNASTY CP kit, or even the shaft4 Barrel kit!! Cause it's autococker threading and their INCREDIBLE barrel's, plus deadlywind make's CF front's for them (only $90 for a 16 & 14 inch front, or like $55 apiece) and Paintballgateway.com has them the cheapest!! Also my friend has just the shaft4 Barrel kit with only 2 backs an a 14 inch front (they are the cheapest at ansgear.com, they just don't sell deadlywind barrel's which suck's!) But he uses them on his axe and swears by the barrel's, so look into those also!! GL MAN!!

CF barrels are always louder.

I just picked up a Lurker Eigenbarrel, I guess I will see how awesome it is this weekend.

I usually use a Kaner 2 piece, or if I needed smaller than .684 my J&J kit has a .682 back.


Honestly, for the price of the Lurker Eigenbarrel, I'd grab both their sizes and ditch barrel kits completely if I was in the market.

Actually Lurker Paintball is the name of the barrel and eigen is their product lines (guess he thinks it sounds cool):

http://www.lurkerpb.com/barrels/the-eigenbarrel/

These barrels are all I shoot (until paint swells too much), I much preferred them over my furious and they are extremely cheap.

Buy lurker stuff straight from Lurker.

You really aren't going to notice any difference changing barrels based on what I read from your posts.. Just buy more paint/practice, or buy better paint.

I've heard some people claim the CP barrels self clean better then others.. But personally I don't really believe any of that nonsense. I use a deadlywinds barrel, and sometimes when I want a shorter barrel I bust out my OG glued Dye Ultralight.

Also I don't understand why you made a thread saying you weren't satisfied with the performance of your current barrels.. and then went off on a long winded post saying how awesome they are and how other people should buy them?

TL;DR, stop wasting time swapping barrels and play paintball. They'll all shoot basically the exact same. Why do you think pro's don't bother ****ing around with barrels? They just use whatever sponsors give them.
