Question Need help choosing between 3 barrels

Im going to be getting an Ion (WOOOOT) and I've been looking around and i hear that the stock barrel is crap so I went looking for barrels. I looked around and i found 3 barrels that I liked considerign the prices and performance:
1. Evil Driver
2. Custom Products 2 piece
3. Dye ultralight (kinda pricey)
Somone whos seen all there barrels in action help me out with this one!!

in that price range the cp is the best performing. unfortunatly, probably the worst looking of the 3 barrels.

if your willing to fork up the extra cash for an ultra light, you wont be sorry.

go with .689 on a UL. shoots darts, but Cp's are decent too, just don't get an evil barrel.

ultralites dont come with a 689 back, get a 688 unless you regularly shoot very large paint in which case get a 692. Either get a 14 or 16" front. If you have the money, fork it over and get an UL. If not get a teardrop, progressive, or J&J Ceramic.

imo 16 are way too long. i prefer 12s. .689 bores are standard. and drivers are up to par with cp one pieces, and look way better imo, and come in .689. but still the ul owns em all.

16" is too long normally, but considering his name is "iplayfrontguy", i'm guessing he plays front, which means you, iplayfrontguy, willl want a 12", 14" tops but preferably a 12"

If he plays airball 16" is great for staying tight in bunkers cuz you can press your barrel into the bunker and keep more of your body behind the bunker. With a 12" you'll just be shooting your own bunker.
