This video is to help players make better choices in selecting paintball barrels and bore sizes.
Anything less than 14″ is too short
Anything over 16″ is too long
14″ or 16″ work the best
For bore size, all paintballs typically start out around .689. But as heat, moisture and humidity starts to affect the ball throughout the day, the paintballs will rapidly expand.
You want the paintball to ROLL OUT of the barrel at the start of the day. I personally prefer 14″ Barrels, and here are my personal recommendations-
.691 Bob Long Marq 1 Piece
.692 Dye Ultralite 2 Piece
.693 CP 14″ 1 Piece Classic Barrel **
.694 Bob Long Marq 2 Piece
If you insist on using a 16″ barrel, here are my recommendations-
.691 16″ CP 2 Piece Pro Barrel
.692 16″ Dye Ultralite
.693 16″ CP 2 Piece Pro Barrel
.694 16″ Bob Long Marq 2 Piece Barrel
14″ in my opinion is the BEST length for a paintball barrel. The sooner you can get the ball out of the barrel, the better chance you have of it not breaking in the barrel. 14″ is the universal length I recommend, and the .693 14″ CP Barrel is the most universal barrel I recommend.
