Which bore is better

Have my ego 11's both with .689 shaft barrels. I have 2 different paints I shoot. Valken fate and valken redemption. The fate fits inside bore of barrel and I can blow it out briskly and it goes about 20-25 feet. The redemption just rolls out the barrel no problem. Will the redemption be ok to shoot or should I try and find a smaller barrel back for it.

anything is ok to shoot with, it wont hurt anything, might be a tad less efficient or accurate though, depends who you ask, some people like to over bore, some like to under bore, and some like to try and match the paint to the barrel.

The .689 will shoot fine, but I am concerned that you have multiple 11's and have a simple question like this. I started with a tippmann but I guess ego's work pretty well.

I started with a tippman 7-8 years ago. Then upgraded to an auto cocker then to smart parts nerve. I then quit for 5-6 years and now I'm back and yes I have 2 ego 11's and I love them both. I paid for them myself and I'm not a spoiled rotten kid. I'm a spoiled rotten adult with a wife that makes bank.

I'm gonna keep shooting the .689 cause that's what I've got. Lol but I was just curious if the loose valken redemption would create a problem with accuracy. Thanks for the replies.

Sounds like the redemption may be a better paint for me then. The fate fits good and I can blow it out of the barrel pretty easily. If I can do that would that be considered matching, or a good match. The redemption is clearly under bore.

Redemption is a great paint, all our team shoots at tournament's, we all use .689 backs with great success, Honestly no reason to change it.

I've spent $1600.00 in 3 weeks in guns alone. I'm not buying anything else for a few days. Lol I bought 3 more cases of the redemption today. I'm gonna blow as much as I can of it tomorrow and just see how it shoots. I know how the fate which sits in the barrel nicely shoots. Now I'm gonna see how the over bore works out.

Im not saying unboring (within reason) causes breaks, but you not remembering when the last time you had a break is completely different than never having a break (ie all day every day).

I dont mean to be argumentative but one would think this would be the most inconsistent behavior. No paint is so consistent that every ball is the same size, some will be made exactly to spec, some will be bigger and some will be smaller. If you match to your bore, what will your results be?

If you underbore, the majority of your shots will all be underbored, no matter if the paint is big or small... and the same goes with overboring... but to me, matching would provide the worst results, as you never know if THAT ball will be under or over. Again, thats just me and Ive never been accused of being brilliant.

I'm just having a hard time finding the logic that over bore is more accurate. I completely understand losing some efficiency but it just seems to me that over bore would kinda make the ball skip off the walls of the barrel as it exits and throw your ball all over the place and leave a lot of inconsistency. I'm not saying people are wrong by any means by saying its more accurate I just have a hard time seeing the big picture..... We shall find out soon enough though.
