The new FX TwistX barrel is alleged to group at 100m what their smooth twist does at 50m, this is showcased in their new airgun FX Crown.comes with adjustable twist rate for $99 - how is it!

It's not adjustable twist rates
It's interchangeable barrel internals with different twist rates. Also can change calibers same way

Why different barrels with different twist rates. Wouldn't one single barrel with a twist rate that shoots best groups at 100 yards be able to do that at 50 yards. :?: :?

Barrel change is for different calibres, not different ranges. Yes, if a rifle is good at 100 yards, it will be good for 50 yards also, and over 100 yards too if pellet and power are good enough.

I thought different twist rates are being offered in the same caliber as barrel liners.

Twist rates have something to do with different pellets Brand/Shapes. Pellets like H&N Sniper Magnum, JSB Monster... Cylindrical shaped pellets might benefit from a higher twist rate barrel (IMHO)
