Review: Where do I begin?
Firtsly, let me say that I have been playing paintball for nearly 20 years (yes, really 20 years)!!! I feel qualified to say that this is the single most disappointing product I have EVER purchased.
After much hype (and review reading on this site) I decided to import one of these kits (can't buy them new in the UK).
From the moment I opened the case I was disappointed. The 14" tip was full of flaws (porting holes not drilled correctly, excess anodising coming through the holes and into the bore of the barrel).
I work for a metalwork/anodising firm and have a lot of experience with such items, and I can tell you now that this is one of the worst examples of anodising/polishing that I have ever seen.
I had our Quality Control section test them with a Bore Micrometer and three of the back sections had variances - eg, the .687 section varied in diameter from .686 to .688.
I wonder if the manufacturer even bothered to polish and hone them?
Some of the back sections didn't align properly with all three tips - some would line up perfectly, others not - so no consistency there.
All five back sections were almost impossible to remove from the marker, even when lubed.
And worst of all, one back section had parts of a pull-thru stuck in it!!! The set was still factory sealed, so this must havbe happened during production.
Generally, the product felt cheap, looked cheap, but was anything but cheap ($200). Call me old fashioned, but I expect a lot more for that sort of money.

After returning the item for an exchange the new one was just as poor, so this was not just a one off. The guy in the store seemed to think it was a bad batch, ok fair enough, but does Worr have quality control procedures or not??? They certainly don't seem to have any kind of effective Customer Service - many e-mails ignored and promises of help not fulfilled.

It is worth noting that this was the updated version of the Kaner Kit, not the original version - so maybe that has something to do with it?

All in all, VERY disappointed - I have been a big WGP fan for many years but this will seriously affect my judgement the next time I come to buy one of their products.
Conclusion: Rubbish - buy the Freak Kit.
Much better quality, bigger choice of bore sections and great product backup from the manufacturer - WGP take note!

Thats very strange, my Kaner kit is absolutely perfect. All the porting and anodizing looks amazing, and all the pieces line up perfect. Sorry you had a bad experience with yours, its too bad you didn't get to try it at its full potential.
