Paintballs:
I have used X-Ball Bronze, Proto, PMI Premium, and random White Box paints.
Strengths: Easy to use, quality built, good fit and finish,.
Weaknesses: None really, aluminum inserts might be, not everyone takes care of their gear so well.
Review: I received this as an early birthday present and have been waiting to write a review until I was sure about how I felt concerning the product.

From the first use to the most recent I have thoroughly enjoyed this product. It has increased my accuracy; decreased broken balls due to improper barrel size and just all around in general made the game more enjoyable for me.

First thing I noticed when I took the Freak Kit out of the delivery packaging was the very nice carrying case it came in. A solid rubbery plastic, with a clear window and precut super dense foam to contain the inserts and the barrel pieces.

All of the inserts are a different color allowing quick identification for those who are colored orientated and pick up on that easily. Otherwise all of the inserts were clearly marked with the size on them.

You can change backs for different markers, and change barrel lengths. This makes it possible to use it on multiple markers without having to buy a whole new kit. Awesome adaptibility.

There is a tight fit with the inserts that will take some getting used to for some, I found sliding it in from the back worked best and slipping my finger in the top of the insert and pushing it out was easiest to remove insert without using tools and damaging it. The inserts are something some see as a weakness with them being aluminum. Take care of them, take your time putting them away, donít set boxes of paint, your gear bag, and your marker on top of them, and donít step on them. Basically treat them well and they will last a long time. It is that easy.

The only issues I have is with the anodizing on the product and with the size markings, if you are playing in sandy conditions and when taking out the insert you have to be careful not to scratch the outside of the insert and take off both the coloring and possibly any important marking information.

Otherwise an excellent product, which I would recommend to anyone looking for a quality two piece barrel kit.
Conclusion: A quality product, excellent for any marker out there that the product is avaliable for. Take care of it and you are set with a product that will last a long time. Switch backs, bam your kit fits your new marker, switch barrel lengths for Rec, Scenario, and Speedball. Buy one today!
