Products Used:
Dye, Smart Parts, J&J, Custom Products, Titanium Paintball barrels
Marker Setup: Custom Anodized Purple/Black Matrix w/bolt kit and trinity
CenterFlag Dynaflow 68ci 4500
12" PowerLyte Scepter System w/SS back and all 5 inserts
Smoke HALO B with Aardvark HALO ultra Low-rise

Whatever you like
Strengths: I purchased the stainless steel back with all 5 inserts. It's lighter than a boomstick, but heavier that my Aluminum Freak. It's got a very unique report, unlike any barrel I've ever used. Quieter than the freak, but not as quiet as the Custom Products kit. I just played with it yesterday with PMI premium paintballs and I didn't have one break out of an entire case. The balls went right where I wanted them with the .690 insert (the paint was rather large). I thought it was more accurate than the Freak, but seemed to have the same trajectory and distance as with the custom products kit. Overall I was quite pleased with my latest paintball purchase.
Weaknesses: Powerlyte only offers 5 bore inserts, where the freak offers 8. I travel to different fields often, and find that one must have many barrels to choose from in order to get the perfect fit for whatever paint is available. I'm not holding that against PowerLyte however, since most of the aftermarket barrel kits only offer 5 bores to choose from.
Conclusion: I recommend this product to anyone needing to be able to shoot different bore size paint. More accurate than any stock barrel, and looks fantastic attached to any marker.
10 out of 10
