doesnt the fact that its a kit eliminate the need for specific paint?
easy to change backs
the case is a pain to open
doesnt come with o-rings
first time i ever used this kit was at my cousins house; i had went over to help him install some stuff on his cocker. he showed me his new edge kit and i noticed that it looked beautiful. of course, it wanted to see what it looked like on my omen, so i did. he has a pond in his back yard with a metal shed on the other side, so i shot a couple rounds at it. i was amazed how straight it shot. i shot about half a hopper, all flying straight enough for me to hit whatever i wanted to. im not gonna make up a grouping form such and such feet, your just going to have to trust me.
later, i went and ordered my own (with a red tip) from paintballdiscounters.com for $114.00 (which is a wondeful price)
when i got it, it preformed just as well as it did before, even with old PMI big ball. it comes in a nifty case too, but its a pain to open sometimes. it also only comes wiith one o-ring, which isn really that big of a problem.
i give it a nine because there are better kits out there, but nothing comes close when you factor in price.

the back gets is hard to get off on a cocker
I think it is the best barrel I have ever tried. The kit comes in a nice foam lined plastic case. I got the barrel with the 12 inch tip and it is black. The accuacy is superb with this barrel. I have never broke a ball yet in it with over 4000 rounds put through. Except for the one time i tried to shoot four balls at once.
It is a great barrel, very accurate, versitle, and you impress the newbies when you roll up with a black case for your barrel.
4 very nice looking backs and different length Tips. Ball sizing is priceless
Nothing with barrels.
I have used many different barrels, always looking for just the right one. I came across the Edge series on accident. You can't beat this barrel for accuracy and usability. The 4 backs I got with the 12" (total) tip is perfect. I use it on my 98C and bought it with the money from the almost worthless Flatline. If you want a HIGH QUALITY barrel at a great price, (I got mine for 115.00 w/ free shipping) THIS is the set for you. As you can see I have used most mid-upper end barrels and this one is the one for me. The box is hard to open and close, but I didn't buy a case, I bought barrels, and they rock!
I highly recomend this barrel set. I sold my Flatline and bought these and I am extremely happy that I did. Buy it! Just don't pay 150.00

ive shot some no-name paint from a local store, shot well, also draxxus midnight
affordable, interchangeable and very flexible
none that i can see as of yet
Just a very good buy, in my opinion--100 at first call paintball, you get four backs and a front, and any additional fronts are 22 from J+J. people say the freak is better because you only need to buy one back per marker, where for this kit you would need all new backs. Personally, I dont intend on shooting anything but this for a long time, so i was fine with the decision to get it. Besides, EVERYONE i know of or asked, that shoots a freak kit, only uses like 3 or 4 inserts anyways. and on top of that, most of my play is and will be at places where i get to bring my own paint. so if i get a bad barrel/paint match, its on me, not the barrell.
well worth buying, 4 barrels for 100 from a trusted name, cant be beat.

Modular bore-any paint you want.
I mainly use chronic
Multiple bore sizes, durable (no inserts to break)
Only four bore sizes (minor), case is hard to open and close
On my angel I used to just use a CP One-Piece .693 barrel. It worked well enough for me. That is until I tried my friends Edge barrel. This is an amazing barrel. With the different bore sizes, I don't have to worry about what type of paint I use. I shoot chronic, draxxus and rps paint. Even if I do manage to get a break in the barrel, I can actually shoot through the break, and it'll be relatively clean after that. Unlike the freak I had on my cocker before i got the angel. One break, and the whole thing'd have to be cleaned. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to hit crap. I also like the look of the Edge. The control bore milling is pretty industrial looking and kinda nifty. I also like the lightning bolts milled into the tip. The system is really cheap as well.
The only thing that I would say isn't the greatest about the barrel is that it only comes with four bore sizes. And they're kinda funky ones too. I'm used to .686 and .689. Not .685 and .688. But thats not a big issue either. The case is a pain to open and close, but that has nothing to do with the barrel.
Great barrel, good looks, great price. What more could you want? Awesome product overall. I recommend this barrel to anyone and everyone.

It's a kit...anything should work.
Great performance increase over stock.
I bought this kit at a field store. I brought it home and tested it on year old DBX paint. It performed ok...I had no breaks at least. I used it at the field the next day with this paint called V1. I had never heard of it, but it was the most expensive paint the field was selling that day. I had the .685 back, and I grabbed 15 balls and 12 of them blew through easily and the rest were just a touch tougher.
The barrel was pretty accurate until I started getting breaks like crazy. The barrel cleans itself decently, but it takes quite a few shots. I bumped up the size to .691 and I had no more breaks. Ive never seen the accuracy of a top of the line kit like the freak or pepper sticks or something like that, so I cant honestly say much about its performance.
The spread seemed ok to me. WAY better than stock at least.
From my first impressions this kit worked good. Pretty accurate. I think alot of the problem was the paint choice. I'll give it another shot with different paint.
I cant see myself sticking with this kit. I wanted a Powerlyte Sceptor.
I'll update this review next weekend when I play again.

Accuracy and smoothness of the barrel (inside)
I liked the case it came with, and the fact I had a barrel system for only $99.
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.
Only used twice, I was displeased with my balls curving or the occasional barrel break and traded for a Freak System.
Save your money and buy something else. Either the 4-Piece Empire or go big and get the new all Stainless Steel Freak.

Get This barrel. They are the best in their price range by far, $65 at firstcall paintball. These are the quietes barrels I have ever put a paintball through. I noticed a huge difference in noise from my stock barrell. The accuracy was pretty good, especially with the 12 inch tip.
I would defenitely buy this over any other barrel under $120.
