Products Used:
Stock Cocker barrel - well everyone knows the stock barrel is horrible, so naturally any barrel is much much better.

dye boomstick - i personally like the empire barrel better, its lighter and balances out the gun much better. I didn't notice any difference in accuraccy though.

evil pipe - even though it has more thread sizes, the empire barrel kit was a lot more accurate than the pipe. it also was much better at handeling breaks/chops when there is paint in the barrel. i like my empire kit much better.
Marker Setup: 2k2 WGP Autococker
-Orracle hinge frame
-Orracle 3-way
-STO ram
-CP flame drop
-Empire 4 peice barrel kit :)
Strengths: ~Light weight
~good recovery with chopping
~good price
~BARREL CASE
Weaknesses: ~Scratches easy
~kinda boring looking
Review: Aight, i suppose i should back up my statements...

light weight - mine is, because mine is completely aluminum (without that shiney back like in the picture.) I have used a boomstick, as well as those other barrels i listed on my cocker, but i think the empire barrel is much better balanced and lightweight.

good recovery with breaks/chops - this is another thing i noticed with my kit, as compaired to other barrels i have used, this is the best one (so far) when it comes to recovering from a chop.

accurate - like i said before, i didn't really notice much difference from other barrels when it comes to accuracy, but i have had no problems with this.

good price - well for this 4 peice barrel kit, i payed about 80 bucks, i would say thats a pretty dang good deal for such an awsome barrel.

---------------

scratches easy - the one problem i have had with my kit, that the tip and sides of the barrel get scratched really easy. (i know this happens naturally, just basic wear and tear of pb gear, but it doesn't take much to add a scratch.) of course this might not be the same with everyone.

looks - its all about opinion, i like the way it looks but some people might think it looks boring... :/
Conclusion: I absolutely love this barrel kit.
so far it is the best barrel i have ever used.
i would definetly recomend it to anyone, simply because i have had such a good expierience with it, and for those reasons in the strengths way outbalance the weaknesses.
