Review: I picked up the kit for a pretty good price. More than the aluminum freak kit but less than the ss kit and the boomstick. The sleeves are pretty durable. The two piece barrel is very nice but only comes in polished black (I'll probably anodize the tip later). I took it to the field the next day and tested it on the practice range. The grouping was insane. I was sending ropes and the paint was landing within an inch from each other. Those Powerlyte guys really know how to design a barrel. Next was the field test. I tagged 2 guys on the break in the first match and thought I just got lucky. For the rest of the day I would tag at least 1 guy on the break in almost every match. I'm at best a descent player and don't have the kind of experience that the guys I play with have but I sure felt like I did by the end of the day.
I have been useing my boomstick since my newbie days and haven't found a barrel equal to it until now. It's as accurate and it's lighter. And, for about the same price, if not a little less as a boomstick which comes with only 1 tip and 1 back, you get 5 sleeves and a cool carrying case.
Conclusion: I recommend this kit all hardcore ballers. I don't think I'll be shopping for another barrel again. It's as accurate if not more accurate than my boomstick and it's a lot lighter.
