You know those barrels that make the ball spin so they go straighter (I think that's it). :huh: Are they any good? :unsure:

We have not seen any data that shows rifled barrels change the accuracy of paintballs in a positive manner.

Do not purchase a rifled barrel. Get an underbore for better air efficiency or an Apex barrel for more distance.

apex barrel does what you described. and it works

I split my vote, half for etekgirl's body, half for her mind, because I respect a woman's mind just as much as her cans.

As andrew said there is no positive evidence that this does what its supposed to but i would think that rifling would cause drag thus slowing down the paintball thus your marker would have to run at a higher psi to compensate for the slOw paintball and reduce efficiency.

Twister, any good? NO, they are crap!

Hard to clean, stay dirty and very inefficient and noisy - no upside in accuracy or anything else.

There are many good barrel upgrades, the twister is NOT one of them.

Good Luck!
