I want to get a nice new paintball barrel but I don't have the experience with any of the expensive barrels. I'm looking into getting a dye ultralite or a dye boomstick for down the road. But if any of you have any recommendations and or tips please do tell. Also I would like to know a good overall bore size. Thank you!

There isn't really any specific good bore size, because it all depends on the typical size of paint you shoot.

these companies all make good barrels

proto 

dye

empire

deadlywinds

gog

CP

pathogen

 The first thing you should do is the next time you go to the field see if anyone at the field will that you borrow a paint sizer, or ask the field owner if they now what the paint is bored at , then you can get a full barrel kit, like a empire super freak, a gog freak kit, or a pathogen meteor kit

the other option is to buy just one back in the size that the paint is, so if it was bored at .685 then you could get a deadlywinds fibur x barrel and one freak insert in size .685, or if you want good performance for a very cheap cost you could get a cp one piece in .685($30) or a cp 2 piece with a .685 back.($60)

The dye boomsticks and ultralights are amazing barrels but for the price you are paying($159 for a boomstick and $110-$130 for an ultralight depending on the tip length and color) you could get an entire barrel kit, the proto two piece barrels are basically the same as the ultralight but with proto stamped on the side($60), 

Pathogen makes great barrels, you can get their meteor kit which comes with like 7 backs and 3 fronts for just $149.99, or you can just design your own on  HustlePaintballs website and they only cost like $64 to choose a back and a front(from pathogen), which is a good midrange option

BUT FIRST....... go to the field and size your paint

"It costs me more than $3,000 to play paintball every year, therefore I'd get a used highend for around $300- $600 and use the rest towards paint, gas, food, hotel costs, alcohol, and cheap hookers." SOUP on March 31, 2014

Why do you want a new barrel in the first place? What is wrong with the stock one?

From the different barrels I've shot, Dye UL, Shaft 4, Freak Barrel, and Now Bob Long G6R barrel, The disruptive barrels are the lightest and quietest barrels I've shot. But they don't have the ability to switch out bore sizes easy. I personally rather not buy 3 different backs and what I am currently doing is having my Bob Long barrel for my G6R freak bored. The bob long barrel is actually pretty nice and it matches my G6R so with it having the ability to take freak inserts I think that's the best way to go. If you have a decent stock barrel just go get it freak bored and pick up some freak inserts. That's just what I would do if I were you though, it's all about personal preference!
