Review: 1st Impressions
I liked the case it came with, and the fact I had a barrel system for only $99.

1st Usage
Had quite a few barrel breaks, even with the correct bore. I even went to a bigger bore sometimes to avoid such problems, still occured. The threading seemed to scrape every time I put into the marker. I learned you get what you pay for.

Continued Use
Only used twice, I was displeased with my balls curving or the occasional barrel break and traded for a Freak System.
Conclusion: Save your money and buy something else. Either the 4-Piece Empire or go big and get the new all Stainless Steel Freak.
Rating:
6 out of 10

i own this set and have had no trouble. maybe you should try to screw it together tighter. by the way when i first screw anything together i put oil on the threads to ensure that they arent damaged. maybe you should try this before you buy sp garbage.

ya sp sucks butt crack. dont say a barrel is the cause of chopping or curving. knowing that you use sp, you problly were running some 3 year old be paint threw it and blaming the barrel

Dispute:
Should clarify testing of the barrel (ie. paint type, weather conditions) because the review seems totally out of place compared to other reviews.

Considering the fact that you said the barrel ground on the gun each time you put it on, it seems pretty likely that you didn't have an o-ring on the back, thus the paint breakage. You might want to actually figure out what you may have done wrong before you bash the product. I'm guessing that this is the reason for all the other bad reviews as well.
