Carbon Fiber Barrel Advantages

Carbon Fiber Barrel Advantages -

Carbon Fiber barrels main advantage over aluminum or stainless steel barrels is going to be the weight. Carbon Fiber barrels can weigh half as much as aluminum barrels! As everyone knows in paintball, being light and agile is very important. Not only is it important for the player to be light overall so that they can dive into bunkers and get as far as possible off the break but it also helps with the balance of the gun. The last thing you want for your paintball gun is a big heavy barrel weighing down the front of your gun and making it a work out just to bring it up to aim and shoot. Snap shooting would get tiring real quick if this were the case.

Another carbon fiber barrel advantage is that even with such a big loss on weight, it does not sacrifice accuracy in any way. As a matter of fact, carbon fiber barrels are going to be as accurate as the best aluminum barrels out there.

The last advantage carbon fiber barrels have over an aluminum barrel is styling. Let's face it, Carbon Fiber is just sweet looking and to rock that on your paintball gun makes it that much better.
