Products Used:
Hmmm......Bigshot??? And I had a Flatline.
Marker Setup: Right now? It changes a lot. Vert. Kit with PB X-Core, custom paint, and the Freak Jr.
I've only used Diablo's so Far, would still like Marbz, but Im not picky.
Strengths: I wrote a big review for countypaintball, so see it in the conclusion.
Weaknesses: Look Down.

No.....not there!!!! Sicko, I mean look at the Conclusion!
Conclusion: I traded in my Flatline towards on of these versatile little (long)thing. So far, it's great.

Consider this a Four piece barrel. The back of this barrel is actually a barrel adapter. It has Model 98 Threads that accept spyder threads. This can be good (you can use spyder barrels or this barrel in a Spyder), but it makes the barrel even longer.

The base isn't EXACTLY like the regular one, although it takes the same inserts. This base doesn't have the large milled out "Smart Parts" (or is it FREAK) letters, instead it has two pretty green "The Freak" bubble and two oval shaped ports that you can see the insert size "693" for example. After seeing it, I actually prefer it (I think).

As far as the front goes, I would have wrather taken off a few inches and made the total length 12" (13" with adapter). Also, it doesn't have that nice Teardrop spiral porting or anything of a muzzle break. It's pretty and smooth enough, but it's too long and doesn't do what the Teardrop or AA would do.

Also, I would have preferred a different insert (and I could have gotten one, but I wasn't sure) A slightly smaller one would be great. But Eventually you will want to get more inserts anyway.

Overall, with a few adjustments, (that can easily be made due to the nature of this versatile barrel), this is probably the best barrel out there. I've traden in barrel after barrel (ok, just two) but with this, I can just change the front, or the inserts. This is definately the most versatille barrel ever.
8 out of 10
