Full Freak Stainless Steel Barrel Kit
Any, Personally I Like PMI's or RPS
No Bends, Accurate, 8 Inserts, Perfect Ball To Barrel Matching
I got this kit for my Strange Impy, I've shot all kinds of paint through it. So far i havent had any problems. I've put all kinds of paint through it, no breaks. From an $80 case to a $40 case just match the insert correctly and your good to go.
A must have if you're wanting to improve your game. Would deffinately recommend to anyone with the money. A great investment. Awesome Kit
all my guns have a 14" stainless freak kit /w the stainless steel back and an all american front
Anything! even field paint
Accurate /w all american front
Never have bore problems again
FIRST, LET'S GET ONE THING STRAIGHT: THE BARREL DOESN'T MATTER AS MUCH AS THE PAINT-BARREL MATCH. THIS IS WHY THE FREAK OWNS EVERYTHING OUT THERE! When i first got my 03 shocker, it came with an all american barrel, which was ungodly accurate, except that soon my field purchased paint with a large bore size and my barrel would constantly break paint. It was then that i decided to buy a freak. I looked at what was available and i decided that nothing but the best was going on my gun. That's why i bought the total stainless steel kit with a stainless steel back. The freak is a three piece barrel, which mean its three parts are a back (what screws into the gun), a front (what screws into the back), and inserts (little tubes with different bore sizes). If your paint is very big, simply pop in a larger insert. If it is smaller, pop in a small insert. Never break paint again. I have never broken a ball since i put the freak on my gun. ALTHOUGH IT'S EXPENSIVE, REMEMBER ONE THING: THIS IS THE LAST BARREL YOU'LL EVER HAVE TO BUY... OR EVEN WANT TO. Also, it is incredibly sick how accurate this barrel is with an all american front.
Any should work as long as you match the paint to an insert
Interchangable Barrel Lengths
Does't Change Bore Size with temperature
Well i woke up this morning and guess what i found on my front steps... a new SS freak kit hooray!! As i proceeded to happily air up and then went on to empty 2 hoppers on my neighbors fence. My backyard isnt that big so for longer shots i had to back into my house and through the patio door. The paint i was using was all deformed and well just looked like crap after a day in the trunk. It was diablo formula 13. All the balls came together in a tight grouping that i would guesstimate to be around a 3" diameter. Save for the few balls that flew wildly(mustve been those egg shaped ones). I havent had time to try out the different inserts as just about every field up here uses the same paint(Diablo Formula 13).
So far im satisfied with the SS Freak Kit. I would recommend it if you have the money to spare or live in canada where the temperatures can change quickly and vary quite a bit.
When the temperatures change the aluminum inserts expand or contract changing bore sizes, but this doesnt happen to the SS inserts.

Any except really cheap, only had problems with Zap rec series paintballs.
Stainless steel, amazing accuracy (best I've tried so far), great selection of bore sizes.
Price, extra weight if using the stainless steel back.
I've experienced some amazing feats of accuracy with this system in tournament play managing to hit players with a small burst (the entire string of balls hit) from almost clear across the field with only the top part of their hopper showing. I was amazed at this and also got a warning from a ref for overshooting. Though I think it must have been obvious it wasn't on purpose considering the how far away I was. Interestingly enough the opponent I eliminated wasn't impressed by the accuracy of my shots.
Considering the problems I've heard other people have with smart parts barrels in general I can only say I either have the only well made production model they have ever made or only those people with problems mention anything about this system. I can easily shoot through a barrel break (I have three different threaded backs for my kit) and have only broke a ball twice in this barrel on my Angel but my sensi was shut off both times as well and the paint wasn't all that great.
I'm sure this isn't the greatest system out there, they all have their strengths and weaknesses and I'm not sure if you really need the stainless steel back unless you put your marker through hell on the field! This barrel system as great as it is won't stop me from trying others to compare them.
All in all I am impressed with this system and would recommend it without any problems with one exception. I would suggest the AA tip not the Freak tip unless they have fixed the problems I have experienced with it. Specifically the Tear Drop porting tore up my squeege and rips off parts of my swab making it hard to clean.

Anything. With the bore master kit you can use the best from the worst. I use Draxxus.
Bore Size Abilities, Accuracy, Style
I have had a freak for all of my paintball guns and am curently using one on my Shocker. It is the only Barrel I would buy. It is by far the most interchangable and accurate system out there. I can use any type of paint and have it match perfectly.
Balls can get stuck in insert,bore sizes are small
You really need good paint with this, if they have dimples they have problems. The inserts loike to have perfectly round balls, if the balls are to big I have them get stuck in the insert and the they will either break or have three shoot out about 2 feet. The look pretty sweet and are really accurate. Every shot looks the same so it is easy to get used to. they dont go to far (for me at least) and are expensive. Its almost worth it. I like the ultralight myself but these arn't bad. I have them for the angel and autococker threads.
I like it, I like the ultralight's better in my opinion, try it out before you buy it.

Any, its a barrel kit. Expensive is alaways better tho.
I use the SS inserts inside my DW Fibur barrel and they are soooo nice. THey won't break if you drop them, are actually sized correctly, and have really good honing so are more accurate than the Al freaks. Defenitly get these over the Al ones. You won't regret it.

Any because the system allows you to match ball to bore
Wide variety of inserts, adapters and end pieces to adjust to play conditions.
I have tried and failed to find barrels to meet all paint diameters.
I had (5) barrels from different manufacturers with me while playing.
I could, most often size the balls and use one of the barrels.
Some time older paint was available and was larger than what I had for bore size.
This means keeping a huge stock of barrels in different diameters and lengths to meet available paint diameters and play conditions (winter, summer, etc...).
I play at fields that require the paint be purchased onsite. They often get different paint weekly which means also varied paint diameters.
I played at my field and purchased Marbalizers. I sized the balls and found them to run very small in diameter (.684) My normal barrels are .691.
The Freak system allowed me to find the best insert and match the paint.
The resultant match was perfect. Long distance accuracy due to ball bore match.
My teammate used the same balls with standard barrel and his shots were all over the place.
I can range from (.682 to .697) in size and still maintain effective ball bore matching by simply swapping out inserts. I can also change from my Tippman 98 to my Schrager Brothers Shadow (Spider thread adapter) by changing base components. Back into the game in minutes.
The Freak System allows you to match ball diameter to bore.
You can't get much more accuracy from a round paintball.
Using this and an High pressure air tank instead of CO2 will also improve overall results.
Adjust to any paint, get a new gun sell your back buy a new one
Takes at least 15 minutes to figure out what insert to use
I here the inserts bend if you sit on them or step on them.I dont do this, they work perfect when you put them in the barrel and shoot. some people say they dont shoot through breaks, I havnt had this problem. I used to use a an aluminum freak kit then I left paintball for a while and now there are so many kits out there and everyone bash's the smart parts kit, why??? Cuz it was the first one out so all else is compared to it. You probably will never use 3 of the inserts, who cares Id rather have them instead of not. the fact that you can buy different lenghts is awsome, and when you buy a new gun just buy a new back, with the dye or any others your screwed. If you use a decent paint its easy to match to an insert, if you use crappy paint you shouldnt be looking to buy an expensive barrel kit, save your money and shoot better paint!!! I know all paint isnt perfect but it should atleast be round!!
Maybe Im old school, but playing on and off for 17yrs now I have always found smartparts to be either the best or on par with the best and I still feel this is true. There are a ton of dye loyalists and evil lovers but alot of these people never owned anything else, my advice is if you get the chance to borrow a kit from someone do it and youll find this kit on par with the best. after all smartparts set the standard yrs ago when making the freak kit. nothing is 100% perfect but this is close as far as barrels go, i only wish a stainless back was available for my g7 fly.

STAINLESS STEAL people listen DO NOT GET ALUMINUM FREAK INSERTS. ss will last so much longer, are less likly to bend or come out of shape. If u ever drop an aluminum insert it WILL come out of shape, these things are designed to be incredible accuarte in bore size. if u drop it it will lose its exact shape. ss will not, much more durable. ALSO ss provides better flow for the paintballs. it is smoother causeing less friction and all accruecy. the alonly thing i was bummed about was that they were all silver. if ur a matching FREAK (ha) then get 1 aluminum insert to match ur gun. the ss is all preformence and is one of the best. Freak is a symbol of u got a lot of money and ur gun will own.
i recommend to find out what size paint u will use at the feild so u will not have to bring all of ur inserts. just incase sumone wants to steal ur shinnner ss inserts which would suck!
spend the extra 25 dollars and get the ss IT IS WORTH IT
