I own both a 12"Dye Xcel barrel and a 14"J&J ceramic barrel. I was wondering besides length is there any real difference(beside looks of course too). They both seem just about the same when I'm using em'. The reason I ask is because I don't need both and both are practically brand new and I want to sell one of them. Personally I want to sell the J&J, but my brother says that they are WAY better than my Xcel? Why? Personally I think my bro is just saying that because he uses my J&J all the time.
