I just moved to Michigan and have been playin for about 2 years now and am going to litteraly improve everything. Im deffinetly a player on a budget so im prolly gonna get a promaster, 68/3000, and an egg. But when it comes to the barrel im undecided. Will a one piece work good or does a kit make a large difference? I want to buy good stuff now and not upgrade to much in the future.

It's all about bore size. If u always use the same type of paint and u know it's bore size then u want to find a barrel w/ the same size and buy it. Good brands are everywhere. Double check w/ use first before u go off and get some horrible barrel like a 32* nightstick.

Yes you should or you could buy like a freak or aa and just buy whatever inserts you will need. There are some bores in kits you wont need that are a bit of a waste of money.

AA is the All American 2 piece smartparts makes. Does not use inserts. The freak uses different barrel inserts to match your paint bore size. For example, if you're using .689 paint, you will "insert" the .689 barrel insert.

I would just go with a 1 piece for now. I was going to buy a barrel kit but I realized that I only use one type of paint usually and it fits my barrel fine. But I don't play in tournaments or anything like that yet though.

I think im going with a 14 inch CP. They're relatively similar to the Stiffi and UL right?
