Teardrop or Progressive

i need a new barrel for my E99. and ive been looking around on ebay, and noticed that the teardrop, and the progressive, are identical. is there a difference between the two? which one is better?

i also found a 16inch progressive, and a 14inch progressive for the same price at 30 dollars. which one is more worth it?

They are the exact same barrel, except, the Teardrop's porting has a little different look to it. If you are getting one of them, get the Progressive. Easier to clean the porting, and I don't really like the look of the Teardrop's.

I'd get 14in. Best all-around barrel length for anything really. Longer barrels are good for speedball so you can press into the bunkers easier and play tighter.

I'd look into the Custom Products 1-Piece Barrel. They are very cheap too, but very nice.

Check in the Spyder forum if there is a thread/sticky where you can get a banner and #.
