Paintballs:
Anything, I was shooting seconds paint through it with no problems!
Strengths: Accurate
Light
Locking inserts
Weaknesses: Inserts seem fragile because they are so light.
Review: Well I had been shooting for a few months with my redz pepperstick (single bore not the kit) and the accuracy was pretty good, however I was having problems getting the right sized paint at some fields. I decided to purchase a scepter barrel kit from powerlyte, they shipped it priority mail for free (needless to say I was happy with that).

After using the redz I was thinking the accuracy would be about the same with the scepter system, but I as soon as I started ripping with the scepter I noticed it was actually quite a bit more accurate than the redz. It blew me away how accurate it was, practically ball on ball even when shooting across the field! It definitely gets a 10 out of 10 for accuracy because i've never seen such a accurate barrel.

As far as self cleaning goes I was also impressed, I was able to shoot right through breaks and after 3-5 shots it would be shooting almost perfectly again, definitely a plus when i'm forced to use budget paint.

The inserts are also nice, they weight practically nothing and easily slide into the barrel, changing inserts couldn't be easier, and they really do get locked down in there making sure your inserts don't move around while you play. Only thing I noticed was I was afraid of breaking the inserts because they were so light, this is probably more of a mental thing however as i'm sure they are strong, just don't step on them or anything stupid like that. It comes with a great hard plastic case with dense foam padding and a spot for all the barrel inserts, backs and tips, so I figure keep the inserts in the gun or the case and you will be fine.

Nohting is perfect however I am hard pressed to find a weakness to this barrel system, I will keep updating as I use it more.
Conclusion: I am very impressed with this barrel, it shoots darts, self cleans, accommodates any size paint, the case is great. Overall a very solid product, if you are looking at a freak kit i'de highly recommend trying this out first, the locking inserts make a huge difference in easy of use, and possibly performance.
