Review: I purchased the Freak kit two years ago when I was still shooting my Impulse. Before that I had always used and purchased Dye barrels. Dye barrels are great but the fact that now I am down here in Northern Virginia and have been playing at two fields and use several different brands of paint buying several Dye barrels was out of the question. Playing at my home field Pev's, which is a BYOP field I always use Evil paint; when I go down to Splatbrothers in Richmond to play with my brother in law we are always ending up with a different brand of paint which is really where I start using the different inserts. Since there is a wide range of insert sizes you are always going to have an insert size that will be close to the size of the paint you are using, this is by far the key feature of the Freak kit. One of the other great features is the color coding of the inserts to assist in the identification of the different bore sizes. The fit of the various pieces of the barrel kit is flawless and the finish is flawless as well. Of the main gripes I have one would be the aluminum inserts aren't exactly tough as I did a number on my original .685 insert (this was my fault) but as long as you take care of them this shouldn't be an issue. The kit itself isn't exactly cheap (but better than buying several Dye barrels) and they do have the Freak Jr. of which you can add on to. They also have the Stainless inserts as another option to the aluminum.
Conclusion: Have yet to find a paintball brand that doesn't work with any of the inserts in my kit. Very versatile and user friendly this is a great barrel kit for those players that are always using a different brand of paint.
