Wgp kaner barrrel system, Freak
2003 Cocker all oracle parts.
any shoots all of them well
Quiet,air efficient. And very accurate
only comes with three backs would like to see a fourth.
I have recently aquired this barrel system,I was sceptical at first. Especially since it is a rifled barrel system.So i put it up aginst a Wgp Kaner barrel system,a Freak barrel system. I shot all the same size inserts to keep the comparison fair,and I chroned after each barrel change. The first thing i noticed was that the Hammerhead system was more air efficient. about 10 more balls per 100. I shot this barrel at different ranges. I was shooting 32 degrees team colors that I had left over from a scenario game back in feb. It was out of round and dimpled. The reason i chose this paint is, I figured if this new barrel could shoot crappy paint good it should be able to shoot good paint even better. well anyways I shot at three distances, 35yds,50yds,and 85yds. All the barrels were accurate at 35 even though i got a few more hits on the target with the hamerhead. then I shot the 50yd target I shot 10 balls a piece at the same target from each barrel if your wondering. Anyway at 50yds.the freak was 7 out of 10 the kaner was 7 out of 10 and the hammerhead was 9-10. yes this was a fixed position on the gun.
anyway I took a box and sat it on a fence post about 85yds away and begin the process all over and to my surprise the kaner had 2-10 hits and the freak 3-10 hits and the hamerhead tended to regenerate the balls for a lack of a better word it tokk the curve out of the ball and i did not have that hovering up and down side to side look and it flew straight with no arch like a bullet , any way i managed 7-10 hits and remember i was shooting really crappy paint . The other thing I noticed was the hammerhead barrlel was loud but i later figured out going down range and listening to all three barrels being shot that it was the quieter one of the three because the majority of the sound was projected back at the shooter so that made me happy being a scenario player. Well any way thats my take on the barrel system.
The only thing I would like to see in the barrel system is four backs instead of three. But other than that i give it a 10 out of 10 rating. U gotta try out. Here is a link.
I would recomend this barrel to any of my friends, even though the Fin kit by Hammerhead is $240.00 I do beleive it is well worth its weight in gold.
he even used the word "regenerate" like the web site- what do you mean for lack of better word- NO ONE uses that word in conjunction with paintball flight- another hype review by someone affiliated with the company no doubt- sad
ok, i have this barrel, i am not affiliated or paid by hammerhead, i love it. i have a Angel G7 and DM6. Both shoot better than the Dye Ultralite I use to have. Anyone got a problem with that? Do not bash this barrel if you have never tried it. This thing actually works as well as they describe. I realy dont understand why people like to trash good idea's. I think the ION was bashed, trashed and thrown in the garbage and it turned out to be in my opinion one of the best all purpose markers out there! I think people just enjoy feeding off of other peoples negativity! So say what you like, you are all wrong about this barrel, maybe this guy is a rep, but it dosen't change the fact that this barrel works!
No, he's a company rep because he can hit targets at 85 yrds........ which is a blatant lie. Those are not realistic paintball ranges. That's like 255 ft. BALLS DO NOT BREAK AT THAT RANGE. YOU WOULD HAVE TO MORTAR THOSE SHOTS ALL THE WAY IN THE AIR AND HAVE THEM FALL AND REACH TERMINAL VELOCITY AND FALL HARMLESSY TO THE GROUND. THERE IS NO WAY HE'D HIT THAT TARGET. I've shot core premiums (these ones were hella brittle) out of a closed bolt pump (the most accurate guns made) running prolly at 350fps and had the majority of them not break on a cardboard box at 45 yards. I'd like to see these bs tests. Even if you were able to hit that box there is no way you could tell, there'd be no break! Unless you have physic paintball breaking abilities we don't know about..... which i doubt. Stop lieing noob. At least learn to lie better, most people just like to talk about all the hand, knee, and headshots they get at 150 ft.
I hate to admit it but this review really sounds fishy. I mean come on, 85 yards; no arc; regenerate? Jeez, dude. 85 yards with no arc.. You must've been shooting really hot because otherwise you'd drop at 35.
