I would get the egrip, it would help your gun in the long run rather the boomstick, plus if I were you I wouldnt spend all my money on a boomstick when a AA,JJceramic, or bigshot will work fine, good luck

yup id go with e- grip does more for your gun aand there are cheeper barrels out there that work just as well just rember when you buy a barrel find the best paint for it and dont go by wut other people tell you find out for your self if you dont know how to check the paint to barrel match pm me
just cus you got ownd by a flat liner doent mean that it sucks just means you suck cus you dont have one

thee-grip is a great fire power upgrade on turbo you run semi untill you realy get in a pinch then if you pull the trigger more than 4 times a sec it will fire on the pull and the release you can basicly fire full auto

If youi thinking about getting the egrip you should think about gettin an expansion chamber so it dosent freeze up your gun.

to me it depends on the cores that you play do you need cover fire or long range needs. Better yet get both the e-grip then a barrel.

a long barrel does not mean that you get more range.

Between the two, i would get the e-grip.  However, a distinction that no one else has made clear is that i wouldn't get that barrel because it is like $50 for barrel and $40 for the Dye name imo.  Before the e-grip, i would get a better barrel than the stock one.  Seriously, I think that you will benefit from a barrel more that the grip.  And if you get a barrel, dont go over 14".  I would have gotten a 12", but no one seemed to sell them on ebay when i bought my ceramic.

good luck

Setup: A-5, response trigger, j&j ceramic 14", Male palmer stabilizer, 32 degree gauge, Macroline Kit, Maddman Spring Kit, Shocktech A-5 drop, ProSeal Powertube/Frontbolt, gas: Anti-siphoned CO2

You should probably get a more decent barrel than the stock, I suggest a Lapco BigShot, cheap around $60, and has great accuracy.  Go for a barrel other than boomstick so then you got better accuracy and then go for the speed, 'cause if you have an inaccurate shot, what difference does it make whether your shooting 3bps or 15bps?

Out of the two votes, mine is the e-grip, since the boomstick is way over-priced, like ted.c0bbles said, it's just that expensive because of the dye name.  There are plenty of cheaper barrels that are just as good, if not better.

Barrel is usually the first upgrade for a Tippy.
Personally tho, I don't like the Dye barrel for the
price...
