CMI Thunderpig vs S.P. Progressive

I have a choice between these two 14" barrels for my Tippy 98 Custom...the CMI Thunderpig 14" Rifled "sniper" as they call it, or the Smart Parts Progressive 14" smooth bore, sort of like the teardrop. I would really like a Lapco Bigshot or any other of the same quality and price range, but these two are available for about $20.
Price is an issue for me right now. Or should i stay with the stock one...NOT!

SP Progressive, The rifiling in the thunderpig does nothing, and it has no porting, which makes it very loud.

Thunderpig is not a good barrel.. as stated before, the rifling does nothing for a paintball, and because they are not ported, they are very loud.

My money is on the teardrop, progressive, or a J&J Ceramic.

Progressive is a fantastic barrel in its price range, and $20 is quite a steal. Go for it
