What is the best barrel upgrade for the X7?

I just bought an X7 and I love it. I'm thinking that the best way to improve it is to get a longer barrel, but which one? I read somewhere that anything over 16" starts to put spin on it the wrong way, and it has less range. A cop in my town has an Apex on his, but is that necessary? I'm hoping for something around $50, and shippable to Canada. Any ideas?

anything over 16 inches causes unnecessary drag on the ball, reducing speed.

If you need a new barrel, check out a J$J ceramics, they're around $30, and shoot out barrelbreaks so you don't have to stuff a fuzzy stick down the barrel during a game.

That looks sweet but on eBay there is only 14 and 20 inche ones. could you get away with a 20 because it is so slick?

Nothing, I guess. But I found a 16 on amazon for cheaper. Will it still fit in the stock shroud?
