Eigenbarrel vs CP Back

Hey Everyone,

I recently started playing again and have found my .693 CP 2 piece and my .689 AA 2 piece are both a bit large in comparison to today's paint. I'm looking into either a new barrel or new back and am torn between what to get.

My two choices would be:
1. A secondary CP back in either .685 or .682 (thinking .682?)
or
2. A 1-piece Eigenbarrel in .684 (I'm a little weary of the .678)

Both are around $30, although the CP has $11 shipping ()

Any opinions are greatly appreciated!

I love my .678 Eigenbarrel and my freak kit but I mostly play pump...

That's 2 votes for Eigenbarrel so far...I have a feeling that I'm leaning that way..Any other inputs?

I have both, prefer my cp 2 piece. No reason other than personal preference and when I snapped my cp tip years ago they replaced it free of charge. Both shoot well. Strictly a pump player.

Another vote for Eigenbarrel, one of the best barrels I have ever used.

Awesome thanks guys, going to give it a little more thought, but will likely be going for the Eigenbarrel

Hmm, when I've looked before and simulated a purchase, it always just came up as $29.99 (when it would go to paypal too).

Dr gonzo had some pimp 1 piece barrels, as well. They shoot darts. If u are in the San Diego area I have about 1 of everything, if you want to try them.

I'm shooting a shocker, also why I'm narrowing it down to the barrels I have. Harder to find SFT threads then say autococker.

.682 is still too big for some of the paint around here.

What type of paint are you shooting? I'm usually shooting Heat (I'm on a budget) which seems to be around .687 or so (don't have a way to test it but just by looks through a .689 back). I have noticed higher grade paint (Evil, Premium, etc) is definitely smaller..
