In my experience, you can safely squeeze most paint through a 0.685. If your paint is so large that it gives you problems, please send me some!

I too am back from a hiatus, and have found that all of the decent paint in my neck of the woods is around .682 (probably shooting the same paint as surf2live, same area anyway). Go for a freak bore, grab a .682 and a .679, and you'll be golden. Check with SSC, he might be able to freak bore your CP barrel for ya. Or, if you want a seriously small 1-piece, you can't go wrong with the Lurker Eigenbarrel, boring out at .678. My personal favorite

As far as paint breaking, unless you're talking REALLY brittle, you can underbore ~.007 (IIRC) before barrel breaks really become an issue. I haven't shot any paint that will roll out of my .687 bore, so you don't have anything to worry about with the .685 that you have.

I haven't played yet this season, but if paint is like last year .685 would be large bore. I went to 3 big events last year at Sherwood, Hells Survivors, and CPX ( I do think they were all sponsored by Draxxus) and we consistently had rollouts using Eigenbarrels.

This. You will never see a ball over .685 these days unless you live in a swamp and pick paint off the ground.

Times have changed. Smaller is better. I can finally say that with confidence.

I shot some ultra evil this weekend and had a couple of role outs in my .679 freak.

Tried to clock a pgp I was selling the other day. No local pball shop so I picked up some Wally world crap. What really doesn't help is that it's uber small ...AND not round.

I'm having pretty good luck with the Marb's around me. Very tight fit in a .684, and I get no rollouts out of my sheridans. Three of which have no widgets, and I have NO clue what the bore size would be.
