barrel length??also, 10-round or 15-round feed?

i'm in another dilemna...once again. i can get for no extra cost at wwa an 11" barrel or an 8" barrel. with the 8" i would also get the short pump. and also should i get a 10-round feed or 15-round you think? i would probably get the 10-round with 8" and 15 with 11".

I like the look of the 11" on phantoms. With the 15 round tube you will have to do more rock and cock compared to the to the 10 round.

The 11" - the first shot is more important when playing pump then Semi since the Pump action sort of disrupts your aim slightly (really bad when You're a Pump-rookie). Therfore the 11" will help you put that first ball on target.
EDIT
Just realized that I might have to explain myself. I dont mean that it is a more accurate barrel just that the normal:
Look - put marker roughly on target - aim - fire
is done by having the end of the barrel partly in the sightfield and to some extent by having it superimposed (hmmm) in target. Therefor the 8" is good when you need the extra space U save behind the bunker and you can walk the secon ball in when seeing the first. I have only seen that beeing done once in a pump game and that was a team mate of mine using his 10bps to take out a charging team when they came over the hill... (Yes in a the Swedish Leuage )

i suggest the 11" and the 10 round... rock'n'cock is a lot easier with the 10. i used to always use the 15 cuz i thought it looked better and thought i needed the extra paint, but nah, having 10 balls is fine and since its shorter the balls have less distance to roll until they meet the reciever, so thats why rockn' cock is better.

with my traccer i only go through about 25 in a game of speeball. i'm pretty sure i'm getting 11" unless i buy a used one, but the thing about 10-round stick feeds is that you can't reload until you are totally of of pb's in the feed. with 15-round feed you can reload when there are still 3-4 pb's left.

make sure you leave from for the barbs to be able to allow a ball in then room to be able to pop back in place.
