Lightbulb Which Barrel Would be best for my Tippmann x7 phenom?

Out of these options:
Pathfinder
Hammerhead (sharktooth, battlestikxx, bangstikxx)
Straightline
Hurricane (Rap4)

What length would be the best?
And if there are any other barrels that would be better (preferably under 100) then please suggest.

J&J ceramics. Get one and never look back. They're cheap(around $30) and is the best value i've found unless you get a bore size kit.

Seconded. No need to throw more money at a barrel than necessary. J&J is as good as any barrel ever made, better than most, and is cheap.

Barrels have been discussed before and a lot of it simply boils down to a good ball-to-barrel match.
Get something to measure the diameter of your paint and choose an appropriate sized barrel. TechT offers a fairly reasonable kit.
I know a lot of folks here like the J&J Ceramic. Personally, I love my Hammerhead barrel kit and would opt for nothing else, but I also got my barrel at Tournament Sponsor price. Outside of that it's a matter of preference and avoiding gimmicks.

Flasc makes a really nice barrel system too. They have a milsim kind of theme going on and everything from the backs to the tips to the barrel lengths are all customizable and interchangeable and it's a very affordable system too.
