you want to be about .003 to about .005 under the blow test. so that depends on your local paint.

We can't tell you that with absolute certainty. It depends on the paint in your area. Personally, I'm shooting between .678-.682 paint here. Some people generally get paint even smaller, the lucky ones get paint thats still .684 or better. I would say that around .680 is a good starting point, but there's no way to tell you "this will work for you, guaranteed"

If I remember correctly, the current school of thought on underboring says that you can underbore from .003-.006 without adverse effects...

What state are you located? Or field you play at? That would give us an idea of bore size to suggest to you. I use python, freak, check it bore kits. Mostly for me is 682 to 684 in northeast ohio

one thing i just recently noticed with my new pump is that if you underbore by too much it tends to cause a little resistance in the final chambering of the ball. Granted the paint i was using (DXS bronze) was varying by alot but just something to think of when trying to underbore

Personally, I've got two kits. I've got a full Hammerhead 5 fin kit for my MoFo barrel. (Don't forget about muzzles if that's an option.) It works well and I have no complaints.

However, I do like the TechT iFit 9 piece barrel boring kit. I have three backs for various markers and that really provides a lot of versatility when sizing.

Personally, I don't underbore too much but I'm thinking of testing it out a bit more.

I use a .680 or .676 lapco sizer on my ultralite (.688) or even on my .682 freak. I rarely see paint around here that doesn't roll out of my .682 and sometimes have rollouts in the .680.

Looks like Eigenbarrels are finally back in stock after almost half a year.
Get them while you can.
