Honestly whatever you do don't get a 16" or higher! they may look cool and stuff but when you'll be out in the field you'll regret it... i played with 16" Trinity Tactical barrel and i always smacked it on things... not only that but in close quarter fights it'll make you slow because you don't want to hit it on things.  

if you're going to be a "sniper" you'll still have to be able to move efficiently because the best range for being accurate, no matter what the barrel, will be 70 ft. to 150 ft. that's not too far and people will still be able to tag you as well. so... I think the JJ ceramic 14" is your best bet....  accurate and affordable...

im new to all this i recently bought a 98 second hand with a smart parts 14" teardrop barrel. I noticed no improvement over the stock one. In fact it seemed the balls weren't  breaking on the target. It was then I realized the muzzle velocity is the same so all the longer barrel is doing is slowing down the ball. IMHO!

Whoops if the velocity is the same there's no slowing. what I meant was it seemed with velocity at a constant the longer barrel did'nt seem to be an improvement on distance, accuracy or breaking on target.

After watching the reaper's first vid on the thread, i would have to conclude that the Apex, while surpassing the other barrels tested, just doesn't show enough performance past the smart parts barrel. Granted, anything is better than stock, but at 170, it was simply 2 shots better than the rest. A small enough margin to be shooter luck or error. I would also conclude that I love being a Trails of Doom subscriber and that he has a lot of talent and knowledge. And his equipment works splendidly for him. But theres just enough room after testing for any decent barrel to pass the finish line first. Smile

I have a flatline on my 98 custom I really like it, it is accurate and really does add some extra range, the only downside, is that you can really adjust the curve of the ball like an apex 2, but its still a great barrel and i would highly recommend it, just make sure you screw it in all the way because i didn't and add some big ball explosions. :)
