Does having a longer tbb increase range? Or is it just from compression?
A longer barrel doesn't do much for you until you get into high FPS builds. At normal ~400ish FPS levels, as long as you're hitting carbine length, you're not going to see a lot of change. So rule that out.
A tighter bore can increase your FPS, but it's a marginal increase. You're likely to see an extra 5-10 FPS, which will give you an extra couple of feet of range. It's there, but insignificant, so rule that out.
The big performance increase you get is from barrel quality and consistency. A well made barrel will keep your groupings tighter regardless of bore size, which will give you a dramatic increase in effective range (the range at which you can accurately hit a target). This is where installing a good tightbore really benefits you. While it won't put your bbs out any farther, you'll be shooting lasers right out to your terminal range, which gives you a decided leg up on your target.
I LOL'd hard at the lazer part
The thing is, that's not even a bad analogy. Last gun I put a KM TN tightbore in, I one shotted a 1" gap in a pallet at about 150 feet for a kill. Groupings on that gun were absurd, and it was only 285mm barrel.
and a link to this amazing barrel hasnt been posted why?
Because they're old news. Back when I started playing, KM and SystemA were the only two companies that made TBBs. SystemA were cheaper, KM were better. I don't know if KM still even makes barrels, they're all out of stock on WGC.
The exact barrel:

lol ok then. Prometheus be the next best in your opinion?
UnCompany still has them in stock, it turns out.
Otherwise, yeah, I like prommy barrels.
So what exactly makes for better range exactly? Inst it the compression in your gun and having a good air seal .
I play at a supper long range field so I really want the most ridiculous range ever.
In search for increasing your range what things can you do?
I have seen that video of the * reaps*, but my reason for thinking its bs is its made by the manufacture. Any thoughts???
Also feel free to throw out your opinion on upgrade in terms of range.
REAPS is retarded, regular hop can shoot just as far.
