The JT's shoot great IMO.. they're a bit inefficent, but other then that great barrels.

They clean easily, and put up a very tight pattern with good paint.

I saw those yesterday, my local shop got some in, but the bore sizes were different. I decided not to get that.

I can get either a CP set with 3 backs (685, 689, 693) and 10 and 14 inch tips for $170. OR i could get a Freak with all inserts, S.S. back, and 14 inch AA tip for $170.

Since my Javelin is a .687, the CP set is sounding good to me.

I am going to order one of them tomorow, right now im leaning towards the CP.

I ordered a Aradus from psychoballistics. It allows you to change the bore sizes by twisting a the end of the barrel. This eliminates the need for inserts, multiple barrels, etc.. However it only comes in 13" length (for cockers). Here's the URL with more info on it: http://www.psychoballistics.com/AradusInfo.htm

if you go with a freak the work great, aslong as you get the AA tip. or if your looking for a good cheap one piece try a taso pro series, dirt cheap if you can find them & i've never shot a more accurate & efficient barrel on my excal.

Tips can make a difference in accuracy, and efficiency.

The venting pattern on the tip, dictates how the ball is stabilized during it's path from the breach, through the barrel, and then onto it's intended target.

Say you have 2 Freak tips, equal lengths, one is an AA and the other the Tear Drop tip. The Tear Drop tip wil not be as efficient as the AA, because it has more porting on it.

To take it even a step farther, we can go into step boring a barrel, when the barrell progressively get's larger in diameter, the farther from the breech it is.

Powerlyte barrels are stepped bored, the back piece of the barrel is usually a .688 then steps up into .691 at the tip part of the barrel. This allows the paintball match to be good in the beginning of the barrel, then as it acclerates less drag on the paintball as it flies out of the barrell. The porting on the tip of the poerlyte further stabilizes the turbulent ball even more.

IMO Powerlyte barrels are well thought out, and should be seriously considered. They come in 2 common sizes, .684 and 688, this should cover most of the paintballs out there.

actually, the AA tips have more porting. the tear drop and AA port pattern are exactly the same except for the AA is the full lenth of the tip & the tear drop has the flared ports.

last tourney i used a 14" aa tip. I swear it shot better than my teardrop.....
we were also shooting some excellent paint so thats probably where most of the percieved accuracy increase came from.
