If you can try before you buy, then do. I have not used any of those barrels so can't say.
I have use'd the JnJ Ceramic barrell on a Tippmann 98 I used to own and I though that it was a fantastic barrel on the 98.
Hi guys first post, great site. My head is fried trying to upgradge my barrel for my tippmann 98 should i get the hammerhead 14'', hammerhead bang stikxx or the hammerhead straightline? or if anyone can suggest something different fire away, thanks.
thanks man that JnJ Ceramic barrell is alot cheaper than the hammerhead should i consider that being a lesser barrel then?
Smart parts tear drop barrell i found the best for the 98, alot of poeple swear by the j & j's though.
Those barrells your looking at are great but very expensive for what they are
ok so the JnJ Ceramic barrellseems to be the one everyone is suggesting on other site too is there a particular model i should go for?
14'' should be enough
Just be mindful of "Tippmann Syndrome" Most of us Woodsballers have had it. For the cost of a barrel upgrade, you'd almost pick up a better marker. The 98 is great, don't get me wrong, but in getting on of those barrels, you'd almost be spending what the marker is worth. If your anyway interested in an upgrade, I have an A5 for sale with two different barrels.
Is the A5 a big difference from the 98 man? might take you up on your offer ill get back to you.
Have a go of my tippman 98 tear drop barrell if you want and see what you think ? Where are you based
Bin the lot and get yourself a nice little mini...hmmmm
hey dude, you should pm Charlie on the forum. He runs irish paintball supply and I'm sure he'll be able to find your the best barrel for your gun and for your wallet!

I'd reccommend the A5, they're a great marker. The A5 was my first marker and still serves as my backup.
Stay clear of the Straightline, unless you use a good quality paint and have zero breaks it will be a pain, the minute you have a dirty barrel it will throw the accuracy well off. J&J are good barrels to use, the Flatline, once mastered is a good one, but as Ironclaw said, once you start messing with a Tippmann, the costs climb and by the time you are finished you could have bought something that does all for a fraction of the price.
Shop around, read reviews, see what there is before you make any decision, best way forward.
