Best barrel for an SP-1

I was wondering what would be the overall absolute best barrel I could get for accuracy for on an SP-1. Right now I got a 16 inch progressive barrel with the spiral porting, but I don't really think the porting makes a realistic difference. It's pretty accurate, but I want to see if I can do better. I've researched a few random things like the Flatline but heard it's inaccurate even though it can shoot flatter than any other barrel. I've also researched the Hammerhead rifled barrels with reverse porting. People say "rifling can't work on paint balls" but if they haven't tried it in person with a side by side comparison then I cant really go by that. I've looked into it and it seems like it could be the best one, but I want some other opinions before I drop some money. The physics of it are all there but I'd still like to hear what others have to say. Spinning the ball would get rid of that annoying ball curve when the ball catches one side of the barrel and rotates it. I attached a couple videos I saw, one is just a promo video so of course I know it isn't smart to make a decision based on what the company says.

Any help would be appreciated.

Any well established barrel kit will be just the same as any other barrel kit.

boobies are good, but i don't like pepperoni nipples.
Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.

I have been wondering the same thing. For woodball/scenario play I am looking for a highly accurate and very quiet barrel on an SP-1.

J&J Ceramic or a Dye Ultralite or something else if you wish to suggest.

Dye UL barrels are very nice but I prefer a Dual vented PPS barrel they are heavy and expensive but do a good job shooting most paint.
