I have noticed my marker doesn't shot as straight as I would like it. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what type of barrel I should get.
Should under bore or over? I want more accuracy and reliability.

J$J ceramics or CP barrels are a solid barrel that are fairly affordable. Don't worry too much about bore size for a spyder. Because of how they operate, you're not going to get a whole lot of consistency.

How long of a barrel, I currently have an 11. Would a 12 do anything for me or would I have to got with the 14"?

Neither would do anything other than extend the length of your marker, and depending on when the porting started, possibly make it a little quieter and a little less efficient. Barrel length has nothing to do with accuracy or range in paintball.

between 12-16" there is no real noticeable performance difference. Its just personal preference. 12s will be able to move around a little easier and snap shoot a little easier, 16s will be able to poke through bushes a little more or push bunkers down a little more. 14s are a nice middle ground that can do a little of both

dont worry about over bore/underbore. You are getting a single barrel so it is going to depend on the paint you are shooting and if you get a certain size that will underbore, if you ever shoot different paint you will then be overboring if its smaller . J&Js and CPs if I remember right are both a 689 so you will be overboring on just about any paint out there. Nothing wrong with that

Aright I have decided to go with CP 1 piece 14" inch barrel with the bore size .685. Now I know it's a stupid question but. What color should I get? I have the black version of the fenix.
