Paintballs:
i dont really recommend low end paint during cold weather because they seem to get chopped up inside the barrel. Anything else seems to work though.
Strengths: Reasonably accurate, cost efficient in the long run.
Weaknesses: Initially, very expensive, and you only need like 3 or 4 inserts.
Review: Well, i got a used ss freak when i got my angel 6 months ago. I sort of have mixed feelings about this system. First off, to address why i said i liked my phat system more. I had a phat system for my old spider and it worked great. It was only three backs a front and cost about $130. It was very accurte and very pretty. The smooth bore really helped with shooting diffferent paint in different weather. The only thing about it was that buying a new gun required buying a new kit, which blows. That is where the freak comes in strong. Because it uses inserts i can use it on both my ion and angel just by simply changing backs. Another funny thing is that it seems to work better with my impulse and ion than it does with my angel, but i might just be crazy. Accuracy is okay. I wasn't that impressed by it. I think that the stainless steel finish isn't as smooth as your ceramic and aluminum barrels, but barrels can only be so accurate anyway. Just look at russian legion, their probably one of the, if not the best teams out there and they use the stock barrels on their timmies. Now, the negative aspects of this system...This kit costs way too much. Especialy since you only need like 3 or 4 of the inserts. The other issue is that it doesn't handle very well in cold weather. I think that steal tends to shrink when it gets cold so that might explain some of it. I've just noticed that when i use the kit in cold weather with medium to low grade paint, i get a lot of barrel breaks. When i used the stock barrel during the winter, I didn'thave that problem.
Conclusion: I don't recommend the full kit, just find a used freak back and front off ebay or wherever and then get a couple of inserts where you can find them. I mostly stick with 691 and occasionaly ill use my 693. I think those are the only inserts i have ever used in that system.

Dispute:
The more inserts you have the more accurate you will be able to shoot. You will also have minor problems, if any, with shooting different types of paintballs.
