thats the only difference really, the tear drop is like 15-20$ more i think, depending on where you shop...people say the Tear Drop is hard to clean, actually it is really easy, just get a damp cloth and rub the porting clean, takes like 15 secs...if you have the money get the Tear drop

yeah, anything is easy to clean if you aren't in a game. but no one has 15 seconds to clean a ball break in a game. and i doubt anyone carries a damp cloth.

Get which ever is cheaper, because the only difference is the porting.

when else would ease of cleaning matter? you think cockers are the easiest guns to clean? no, but it happens AFTER the game, so length of time isn't important.

If i am rigth there is a sypder barrel that somehow uses progressive and teardrop tech. I saw it somewhere 8-8-8-p-a-i-n-t-b-a-l-l-.-c-o-m- (trying to outsmart the sever) i think, yea i think so. But trust me you ain't gonna be cleanign in a game, you just blow out what you can and keep going, unless you are in leik a slow stalemate, which if there is i woudl be running foward, i woudln't waste my time cleaning. So get whichever you want, or some reason i think that my xcel and hyperstar is cool cause it is straight and powerful, remember that turnign motion is going to take more energy ver having lil to no spin and since it is round it wouldn't matter to much. just remember that tippys are logn, it says you have a pc, and that my 14 inch makes my gun 26 inches long so just remember it is a big difference on the lenght, but if you are playin where it doesn't matter lenght+more accuracy.

14"s is where accuracy and velocity cap off, but with a 12" you wont notice a difference, and for woods, get the 12" anyways, the longer it is, the more tree's youl bump it into.
