Review: Ok this barrel is very good. And a simple and practical ideal. I love how there is no back to screw into a front that can get stuck together and/or stuck on your gun. I also love how i already had a freak kit and all I had to do was buy the deadly wind barrel and use my existing inserts. The accuracy of the deadly wind barrel compared to my stiffi switch is noticeable especially when it comes to using cheaper paint. Also since the bores of the deadlywind barrel are longer I have less barrel roll out of balls slipping out of barrel because small bore size. (autococker detents are useless because bolt is past detent when ball is in breech ready for fire. however the autococker detents prevent halo from double feeding). The stiffi has a stepped bore meaing that the barrel bore you put on lets say a 689 for example would be screwed on then that part connects to the carbon fiber part whch is 691 for about 4 inches then turns to a larger no friction part to guide the ball. so stiffi switch does have a longer control bore than the little 1 inch sizers may show. Ok accuracy. They are near equal but like I said the deadly wind will shoot the less consistently shaped paint almost dead accurate that other barrels cant shoot as accurately. I dont even compare any other barrels to the deadly wind or stiffi because they dont give me the accuracy. DYE boomsticks are way overrated my WGP kaner kit equaled the dye boomsticks accuracy and neather handle breaks nearly as well as carbon fiber.
Conclusion: ok you can spend
100 for deadly wind buy 4 freak inserts 8.50 a peice
totalling 135$
or you can buy a stiffi switch kit
150$ if you find one cheap.
they both kick ass. and light as hell. they both have a different look going
(stiffi being more flashy)
(deadly wind being more stealth)
they both shoot through breaks good and are super quiet. so decide on personal preference. I however If I bought the deadlywind barrel before my stiffi switch I probly would have never bought a stiffi switch. I have had problems with the stifif switch inserts getting stuck onto the barrel which was annoying and one time the breech sizer got stuck on my karnivor (beyond annoying) and it was almost impossible to remove with pneumatics in the way. So if you got a AUTOCOCKER deadly WIND definately is the way to go.

I would give this product an 11 if I could
so it will settle for a 10.
10 out of 10
