    best one for your money is the j & j ceramic one.. it comes in 12 and 14" for the tippmann 98 cust.. i got it.. i did alot of research and read some reviews before i even decided which i wanted to go after. www.pbreview.com i believe is where people give their opinions on barrels.. i've never had a ball break in this barrel, even using really bad paint.. and it has great accuracy and precision.

    on my a-5 i had the flatline and i loved it. I used to pick people off across field in woods ball all day. I had the carbon fiber stiffi barrel also and it shot nice close range too.

    I had a flatline and could shoot 50% farther and straighter than anyone else I played paintball with. I had a red dot sight with it, the thing was real accurate. It didn't break that many balls, but when it did the shots were completely wild if you didn't clean out the barrel. My secondary barrel was a J&J ceramic.

    i need something with great accuracy and range. i was reading about the j&j and ilike what i see. i tried the flatline and i hated it. after a few feet the ball went up then leveled back off. by thetime it shot far enoughthe balls wouldnt bust b/c there wasnt enough pressure behind it... so are the j&j's great with long distance shots and accuacy?

    I don't think anything can compare with the flatline for long distance accuracy. That said, the J&J is a pretty good barrel and I'm sure would suit your needs.
