1 year
Products Used:
Marker Setup: Angel Speed '05
PMI 68/4500
Halo B w/Victory Board and Shoctech Rip Drive
SM-1 Barrel
Evil, Chronic, Inferno, Premium
Strengths: Strong body
Strong inserts
good accuracy
farily good self cleaning
Weaknesses: Fairly heavy
Reverse threading doesn't stay tight when attaching to marker
No carrying case
Review: Pros: VERY STRONG barrel front and inserts (I've never used one of them so after accidentally droping one on gravel with no damage I tested it on cement then again on cement with the first time dropping it and the second time throwing it...STILL NO DAMAGE!), the inserts are around 5 to 6 inches long (better accuracy and efficiency), good accuracy with mid-paint but very good accuracy with quality paint (still not ball on ball but still within a 1 foot circle at around 50 feet which isn't bad for the price), $150 so its not expensive, has 4 inserts (.679, .683, .686, .689), self-cleans fairly well if you do manage to break (I've never broken with the paint I recomended for it though).

Cons: Its a bit heavy but that balances alot of tanks out (kindof), the reverse threading comes loose when you attach it to your marker and is hard to get tight enough so you don't have to tighten it later in the day, I've never used the .679, not the quitest barrelout there but it beat out the Pipe for noise and the self-cleaning, and....oh yeah did I mention its a bit heavy.
Conclusion: This is a good barrel kit for a fair price if your looking for something that is accurate with good paint, is a fair self cleaner when you break, are not worried about barrel weight or reversed threading, want something that is fairly quiet, but most of all somthing that you can rely on even after tons of abuse and hard play to be just as good (if maybe not a little smudged on the gloss finish) as the day you got it as long as you take decent care of it in the meantime.
