Marker Setup: ICD ProMaster, J&J Edge Elite barrel kit, Halo B, Redz ASA (torpedo style), soon to come-custom bolt
Recommended
Paintballs:
Stinger, Polar Ice, and Evil----only paint I have used so far and it works great
Strengths: *3 fronts in your choice of 8", 10", 12", 14", and 16" barrel lenght
*Build
Weaknesses: *The sound the barrels make against each other (makes you shiver like foam on foam)
Review: Build--------
Strong tips and backs. They do not dent easily nor scratch and scuff. Some aluminum barrels dent easily and are thin. The J&J kits is built very well ad is very light. The threads on the gun are also nicely made. Some threads are made loose, where the barrel shakes off the gun and the tip and back come loose. Without the included o-rings, they did not loosen and where snug. The tip and back are easy to separate, so WGP owners, the fron will come off with the back attached, will not have to fight to get the back off.I have held a Evil Pipe kit before, it felt flimsy, thin, and weak. The Evil Pipe kit i looked at was used and it had some scuff marks and chips on the tip and scratches on the back.

Looks--------
They are not as shiny as the freak, nor as colorful as the pipe kit----but they have a sleek and stealthy black design. I like the black dust finish, but some people like the polish shine. They come in only one color (black) but that is nothing to me, black goes with anything.

Performance--------
DEAD ON ACCURATE. I was shooting some Walmart paint (Scorch and Monster Ball)40 yards from the tree we were shooting and it was shooting in a circle grouping of about 1 foot in diameter with the .682 back and a barrel length of 10". My gun was set for a 400 psi output tank and we had a 850 psi output tank on the gun, I am thinking it was shooting a little over the 280 i last chronoed it at. Now if I wold have had some Evil paint to shoot, that pocket would be smaller.

Value--------
For $77, you cannot beat this kit. This kit comes with your choice of three tips to make a total barrel length of 8", 10", 12", 14", and 16" -- and 5 backs. The basic Freak Jr. Kit has only one front, one back, and three inserts for $79. Now the Freak does have the Smart Parts name on it, but it is not built as well as the J&J barrel kit or the WGP kit. With the J&J kit you are getting the same thing as some of the more expensive kits with that fad brand name.
Conclusion: This is a great kit. Very accurate, light, strong, sleek, and not so hard on the pocket.

Solution to the times when you had a shot on the guy down the field but that dang stock or overrated barrel would not give you the accuracy but give you that 5 foot pocket of fire.
