No, 16 is okay. It's as long as it ever should be, and given that you are a back it's ok.

16 is long, but for a back marker it's ok.  especially for air ball becuase you can push into the bunker more...

Stiffi is good but some of they're selling points are complete bull$%!#

1.They're barrels ar'nt more accuracte that has to do with paint to bore match, not the materials and manufacturer.

2. Carbon Fiber barrels are'nt "stiffer" and even if they where, its not like that ultra heavy paintball is gunna bend metal...

I will give them that they're barrels generaly are quieter but you honestly dont need to be to quiet in speedball, its kind of a noisy game anyways.

honestly, if it's cheap as hell (like $50) then go for it.  Otherwise, i wouldn't bother.

Yeah, if your going to spend "alot" of money on it then dont bother. But a long barrel is better for playing back:it's more accurate(Since your shooting greater distances') and you can push it into the bunker, creating a much smaller targer.

As everyone else has stated, 16" is a great length for back players, main reason being it can work around bunkers better.

Stiffi's are awesome barrels, especially when you can pick them up for cheap.
