JT Elite's worked fine
Strengths: Light, relatively inexpensive, nice looking, accurate
Weaknesses: Aluminum backs instead of stainless steel
Review: The Edge kits now come with 4 black backs as standard. You can choose the length and color of the tip. I'm not sure that the nickel plated backs are an option any longer. Also, you can order through your dealer (or direct from J & J), new tips in various lengths (8-14") and colors (black, blue, red, green, chrome). They're only about $21 (+ $5 for chrome), direct from J & J. You can even order a ceramic tip for the kit if you so desire.

I was impressed with the overall look and quality of the kit. It only cost me $115. I got a 12" black tip to match the color of my 2K3 BKO. The anodizing and lettering is pretty good, though it seems to chip a little too easy at the edges. The kit includes a nice, albeit cheap, plastic padded case. It also includes o-rings for all of the backs and the tip.

The barrel seemed to quiet my BKO a little more than normal (It's pretty quiet already). Accuracy and range was definitely improved upon comparision to my stock barrel. I have suffered no barrel breaks in the 400-500 shots I've put through it so far. Perfomance wise, I have no complaints and I am very happy with my purchase.

I would prefer stainless backs over aluminum for durability's sake. But, other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.


Conclusion: For the price, you can't beat this kit. It's way cheaper than the Freak, Phat, or Powerlyte barrel systems. It probably has 90-100% of the performance they offer, too. Plus, you don't have to mess with fragile inserts. If you are on a budget and want a multi-bore barrel kit, this one is for you.

^People with little diks whom concentrate on BS are annoying arent they :P

Anyway, why stainless?

Aluminum weighs absolutely nothing, especially compared to stainless steel barrel tip which brings the barrels weight up to what feels like a pound.
