I to was present for a hammer head test. My friends team was thinking of buying them so they wanted to test one against a lot of different barrels and I brought my freak along for the ride. I don't remember the exact numbers but the hammer head blasted them all away.

Yeah, I'm repeating what I've heard somewhere else

Its called a PHYSICS TEXT BOOK. You know, Newton? Laws of thermodynamics? I'm not "worked-up" about the Hammerhead, I'm worked up about IGNORANCE. Its more of the hype-laden crap that has ruined this industry.

No it hasn't. Who gives a crap if rifiling doesn't do anything. A barrel's sole purpose is to get the next shot as close as possible to the previous shot. This barrel excels greatly at doing that. Who gives a damn how?

Ddinwdc the fact still remains that you preach about ignorance yet you have never shot the barrel before. Ruzhyo666 and I arent arguing about the rifling but the fact that the hammerheads shoot better than the other barrel kits we tested.

You have your opinion and we have ours, I'm done with this. Thanks for the backup Ruzhyo666. Peace!

jesus man... you need to chill the **** out. all i ever see you do is rip on hammerhead and yet you've never used one of their barrels. you have absolutely nothing to say about them unless you've used one. your "i've studied physics" crap is retarded.

if you're all "worked-up" about "ignorant" ppl, you're going to be in big trouble when you get into the real world. you might as well kill yourself now. get your panties outta a bunch and move on, or how about ignoring the thread?

I'm a skeptic about the rifling myself. What if these performance increases were due to the simple fact that the hammerheads are just that well made and not the rifiling? Now wouldn't that be odd?

Any chance I could convince you Purdue guys to do that same test on video? Not trying to flame or bash or anything, just curious. The Hammerhead is very unique, so it just goes with the skepticism at least on my part.

Thermo has to do with everything. Albeit not much with barrels... not as much as other factors at least.

well, I finally got my gun running perfect again. S I will post my impression of my hammerhead kit. It's nice, I'm impressed with it. The field I played at had a limit of 260 fps, so I haven't tried it at 300 yet, but at 260 I didn't see any corkscrew effect on the way it flies. The barrel is quite accurate, but I'm not sure it is worth the $250 price tag new, I like it, I'm not gonna get rid of it like my freak kit. If you get a good deal, take it. 250 for a barrel kit with only 3 backs is a little to expensive for me.

its been proven time and time again, with both barrels clean, same bore sizes, and same gun/wind ....basically same conditions overall, the hammerhead will out shoot a freak or ultralight.

i agree, that's why I sold my freak and am not going to sell my hammerhead, it works perfectly. I was simply saying that the price is too high (in my opinion) for only 3 backs and 1 tip. I think that is why there aren't more hammerheads around right now. People always ask about them and hardly get answers from people that aren't sponsored by hammerhead, and it's common sense that if they sponsor you, you are probably going to say that it is the best, etc. If they were cheaper, people would probably be more likely to give it a shot

I cant find any video on a hammer head barrel....can someone link me to one please?

As well im sceptacle on just how much rifling can do since (as stated before) you're trying to spin a round object with a liquid fill. Im also curious as to how the paintball can actually gain enough spin from only getting shot out at ~280 fps. Real bullets work much differently than paintballs but w/e...i havent even used the kit yet.

Just to add to the mix, my experience with barrel is that is SUCKS! If you are shooting at a range of closer than 30', it is very accurate. Go farther than that, is sends balls all over the place. I purchased a 3-pc fin kit, 12". I shot it with ultra evil, chronic 420, hellfire, big ball, cyclone. ball were breaking left and right. i adjusted my lpr, my dwell to no avail. Put on the progressive (stock) and it shoots great. no breaks, flies straight. put the HH back on, swerve, break, clean, break. I called them and they swapped it out for another new one. Same results. They refunded my money(great customer service though) and sent me a free fin and front to shoot and keep for my troubles...not as many breaks but basicly the same. My friend bought one at the same time for his 98c (1-pc) and while his didnt break balls, it didn't shoot any more accurate than his AA. this is an average barrel at best...

Where has it been proven?

Click here if you want to know why rifling doesn't work on paintballs.

I'm not saying this is a bad barrel, I'm saying it's not worth $250.

Their site is finally up and i watched the video...which makes it look pretty damn amazing. I for one though still have yet to see proof of them being able to shoot through breaks in 5 or less shots as people seems to claim...how can they possibly do that with rifling?

Another thing i cant seem to comprehend is how the results from people vary so much...I mean, okay, i can understand maybe hearing the majority of reviews being mostly good or mostly bad but reviews for the hammerhead seem to be 50% so either hammerheads are a hit or miss or there are just a lot of ignorant jerks out there who say its crap without ever trying it.

I'd also like to know how the rifling (if it even works) affects a paintball...though asking here is futile as i've read from that huge 9 page post about hammerheads...maybe ill call up hammerhead and ask them, i dunno.
