Review: I got my tippman 98 from Badlands, and the first thing i did was take off the barrel, having read horror stories about the tippy barrels, mine was just as bad. So aftermarket barrel here we come.
When i first got the Freak jr., i actually wanted to get a progressive, becuase they were less expensive, but the guy at badlands showed me what the freak jr. could do, and i was sold. i took it out, and did a few test shots with it and was instanly glad i had purchased the barrel

The Jr. is very quiet, with the 16 inch stock tip, and there have been times when the people i have shot out havent known where i was.
The barrel comes with a .693 insert, allowing pretty much any paint to be shot out of it wihtout buying a new insert. strangley, i found even with the large bore, and a small paintball (monster) (about .687) the barrel still maintains its accuracy.
thus far with using the barrel, i havent had any problems with it, other than the paint chipping off the back, and i have found that with the adapter for the spyder threads to 98 custom can become extremely stuck together, and unable to take apart.

The barrel can be picky with breaks, as will any barrel, and with the spiral porting can be a pain to clean. however, a barrel swab fixes this.
Conclusion: a Great upgrade for your gun if you want accuracy, overall i would sugest this barrel, however the price and the price for parts (inserts, tips) makes me have to drop it down to a 9
9 out of 10
