I told my friend he doesn't need an 18" barrel for his Rodeo but he insists on it so if anyone could help me out and tell me a good 18" barrel that would be great.

Thanks

14" is gonna perfrom better than an 18". 18 is just gonna need more air to push it out and he is gonna use more air. Just tell him its paint to barrel match that does the real accuracey

1) 18 inches is huge..you can't tell me your'e gonna be a small profile with that sticking off your marker
2) it takes more air to push the ball through 18 inches or barrel as opposed to 14 or 16 inches. (some here would say that 16 is even too long)

I would stay away from 3A. They have no customer support so if he gets a bad barrel(prob will) he is stuck with it. 3A sell crap products and you get what u pay for. tell him if he wants a 16inch barrel to get a 16inch J&J Ceramic.

here's how to prove it to him.
1) find someone who has one of those adapters so you can screw a 12gram co2 cartrege into the asa. (my friend got one with his B.E. Stingray along time ago and i used this to prove this to my little brother.)
2) Empty the cartrage with paint in the gun useing both an 18 in barrel and a 14 inch.
3) results should be pretty obvious. btw, they have very little difference in accuracy if they are different lengths of the same barrel.
