no dont get an 18
too long of a barrel just causes the ball 2 slow down
stick with a 12-14-16

16 inch is pretty much the longest that still has a point. Yes 18 inch barrels will be accurate...but not any better than 16 inch barrels.

Like said before, don't worry about getting sponsored for a while. Nobody (at least around here) would sponsor anybody that hasn't played in a couple tournaments and done well. Just practice and play a lot, enter tournaments next year, and then you might get some sponsorships. I started playing this time last year, just played a lot before winter and some during the winter, this summer played in 3 tournaments with 2 different teams, did well and got 2 sponsorships...nothin too big though, just a pro-shop and a restraunt (sp?).

longer than 16 in will just reduce efficiency and the balls won't shoot as fast....and u would stab your opponent from the other side of the field with it.....as for sponsorships, get on a team and play some tournys and try to get local shops to sponsor you
