What length barrel? 14" or 16"

Ordering a Deadly wind carbon barrel, which length is better?

I just shoot rec ball for fun with buddies, nothing serious but would like an accurate barrel. Its for an Ion

Thanks-

What ever will tickle your pickle. They will both shoot the same, so pick the length you want

Im thinking the 16" i like the longer barrel idea, but since i have never shot a good gun until my ion, i wasnt sure. Oh i have the Freak Jr. barrel kit on there right now, it came with it. but i want Carbon Fiber...

if you like playing in tight spaces, a longer barrel is not for you. I tried to play up front with mine and it got int he way of everything.

I usually play with a 12", but thats just because I play up front and I like the feel of shorter barrels. Snap shooting is a bit easier for me with a shorter barrel.

I dont really know where i play just yet...usually the whistle blows and i run like hell firing as many shots as i can at the guys coming at me..lol

deadly wind or a sly barrel? which do you think is better? i can use my freak insert with the deadly wind but i dont feel like ordering a barrel, i would rather buy one in the store so i can see it with my own eyes. Am i crazy?

Also, it's nice that in a store, you can ask actual people about their actual opinions, so you won't have to trus us random internet people all the time

Really? Maybe in Texas people are just really honest :P

All my stores tell me what is really worth it or not and why, so it's cool

Anyways, @ CripKnievel, you can problably find more varieties of barrels online and possibly get a better deal too, unless chivalry is in your blood to support your local pb shop
