I'm a new Tippmann A-5 owner and have made a LAPCO BighShot my first barrel of choice. However I'm dissapointed at the range. My teammate Kev always blows me away with his flatline's extended range in our sparing matches.

As I'm considering a new barrel, I've read alot of positive things about the two piece barrels ie: SnapShot & Dye Ultralight.

What two piece barrel will out preform my existing bigshot's range and maintain a good level of accuracy?

Thanks alot for your help!

Well, the Apex or Flat Line is the only thing that is going to out range any other barrel. A two piece barrel means you can change the bore size. And that will increase accuracy, but it isnt go do anything for distance.

Your friend is outshooting you because of the flatline. It and the apex are the only ones that add range. Getting a new barrel would do nothing to make the ball go farther. Want more range? Point the barrel up.

^^Exactly. No barrel except for the Flatline and Apex will add range. So if you want more range you're going to have to get 1 of the 2. Or like Rossy said, practice lobbing balls for extended range.
