Oh, I guess I forgot to mention that I also have a lapco bigshot twist on my old powerfeed Classic and that thing shoots darts (when it isn't chopping.....old ANS Phase II bolt). So, I guess I can say that I actually like all three equally and have shot paint through all three types with great results.

For me the twist lock is just a matter of nostalgia

On most twist lock barrels, the twist lock part is stainless steel.
Thus the big and clunky comment on my 1st post.
So far all I have seen is that. Opinion.
They dis sizing barrels to paint but I have found the smaller bore barrels ie .686 or .687 to have much better accuracy than the standard .690 or .691 .
And I have found barrel length has no effect on accuracy with smaller bores.
8" or 14" same difference . I prefer 8" or 10" and once in a while 12".
So PPS has an opinion like everyone else but no scientific data to prove they are right.
1) You cant anodize brass
2) It stands out shiny and bright like a sore thumb in woodsball
3) Its much heavier than anodized aluminum
4) It must be maintained or it will tarnish and most certainly effect shots like a dirty aluminum barrel
Opinions are like feet. Most people have them, and most of them stink.
But thats my opinion.

Joking aside, I think the twist lock thing is preference. I prefer the heavy feel of locking in a twist lock, and I find the nostalgia gives it some more charm.
