Anything works fine, it's an ego with a barrel kit, you do the math.
Strengths: *Light
*Good looks
*Nice, simple case
*quite accurate
Weaknesses: Price? Cheaper than evil pipe though, and worth it.
Review: When I first bought my ego I didn't expect that I would need a kit, but after seeing some of the jumps from using such a large bore on smaller paint, I decided it was time. And being the sucker for carbon fibre that I am, I went with the stiffi.

Even though I had never tried a carbon fibre barrel before, I knew that all those who had bought one and raved about it couldn't be wrong. So after I dropped the 240 bucks, I threw it on and was surprised at how good it looked on my blue marker, kind of expected an "out of place look".

My first day playing and I was very impressed, I was shooting extremely straight, and the barrel was relatively quiet (others had said the stiffi was quite loud). Immediately I noticed that my marker was lighter, which is nothing major, but it's nice to brag about. I also noticed that I was getting more consistent chrono readings compared to my stock barrel.

A lot of people complained about the fact that you can't use a swab, this was never a major issue for me, simply because I'm not a fan of swabs.
Conclusion: All in all I am more than pleased with my purchase, and wil recommend the stiffi to anyone who's in the market for a new barrel kit for their marker.
