New kits are kinda hard to screw together little oil helps.
If you are looking around at kits but not sure what to get. The Freak kit has been around for a long time and alot of people use them. Anyone that has one that is good knows that they are nice to have. You can shoot any size of paintball no more paintballs rolling out of the end of the barrel. Especially when a field you attend uses Diablo paintballs which any of them are small bore. Stainless Steel inserts are nice cause they dont bend or chip when you drop them. SP had a lot of Aluminium inserts bending, chipping when you would drop them on the ground. The only thing I didnt like about the kit was the new box that the freak came in. Its really wide so if you have a small gear bag it takes a good amount of space up. Shooting paintballs since you can sinch up the space in the barrel your FPS goes up. And the Shooting accuracy goes way up. 60 ft you can shoot the size of a small saucer. One on top of the other if your shooting from way in the back possition. Great barrel. I recomend it.
Its a great barrel. Tired of paintballs rolling out of the barrel or not fitting. Get a Freak kit it solves all your unaccurate problems. Well it wont help you with your looks or how to find a date. But it will definately improve your paintballs getting on the target.

More durable than aluminum inserts
Heavier than the aluminum insert kit
Just bought this setup last weekend. Very impressed with its accuracy. Grouping stays Within 3 inches at 60ft with cheap recreation paint (making proper boring nearly impossible) and 90ft and an incredible 6" spread in the grouping at 115ft with tournament grade paint. Anyone that thinks thats not accurate should measure the speedball field they play on. Their Heavier than the older aluminum system, but these inserts wont slowly wear down like the aluminum inserts do. after 12,000 paintballs (it goes by faster than you think) my old aluminum .689 insert became a .691 due to wear and tear. I only feel the weight difference when im holding the two different inserts alone in my hands. I see lots of people complaining about the price, but most high-end barrel systems cost around the same, and those that dont simply cant compare to the FREAK.
The stainless FREAK system definitely deserves a 10. Its incredible accuracy will never let you down. If your serious about paintball, consider the stainless FREAK system when you decide to upgrade barrels. Itll be the last barrel upgrade you ever make
I've used or tested pretty much every barrel and kit out on the market today.
1. Angel 01 LCD with predator 5.0 coding twisted paintball front lpr 32degrees flame drop with empire on/off
2.tippmann A-5 with superfly bolt, response trigger, double trigger with lightened spring
freak stainless for both with 3 different fronts.
anything, thats why it has inserts.
You won't break paint, your inserts won't bend, superb accuracy, and cool looks.
I guess expensive for a beginner,
you can't blame your barrel anymore...
when I got this I knew that I had a winner. Love the case but it could be a little more solid considering the clear plastic is sort of thin for such an expensive barrel kit. The inserts are wonderful and clean out easy. I have yet to have a problem with denting or bending/scratching an insert. And thats definitely something I admire after a year-and-a-half of hard abuse. Paint to barrel matching is extremely easy and once you have that you've got a monster in your hands. I love my barrel kit and will continue to use it for as long as it lasts. This is a great barrel kit even after I have tried others.. but I must admit that I have a personal preference to this kit.
If you have the money and plan on putting a barrel through serious use.. Buy it. Otherwise, its probably too expensive. I give this a 9.9 since I've tried so many barrels..and because nothing is perfect.

Price(still not a weakness).
Before i picked this kit up, i was running a 16" boomstick, which is one of the best barrels one the market. The problem i was having was only having one size guage. Some balls would shoot better than others. Some fit perfect and some didn't. With the freak kit, i havn't had that problem. I can now run cheap or expensive paint with no problems. Plus, this is more accurate than the boomstick just for the fact that by guaging the balls right, you get more air behind the ball which increases your velocity. The rifled porting picks up the ball and gives great accuracy shot after shot. I do have to admit that it is pretty heavy, but with the weight of the, the weight of my gun is evenly distributed. When i got my kit, i only paid $160 for it. Talk about luck. This has been one of the upgrades i've ever got for my gun.
This is a definite must for anyone who owns a paintball gun. one of the best upgrades you will ever buy.

not much diff from stock barrel
This barrel is no doubt a good barrel to have. performance wise and quietness were the same of the stock barrel. A great thing that i like with this barrel kit are the inserts. i do not break paint at all anymore because i can perfectly match the size of the paint to the barrel which prevents the paint from rolling half way out and the 2nd half in. because it causes breaks in the chamber...the worst
This is a great product, but only if u have troubles sizing paint to your barrel

Any paint, just match up the size and your ready to go. But I like anything Draxxus.
When I first got this barrel I thought that it would be the perfect barrel. And it was. The first time I used it was at a local tourny. This barrel is very accurate, it shoots right where I aim. Now I can get the paintballs flying right past the bunker maybe 2-3 inches away, so that if the person tries to come out even the stightest bit I can take'em out. After a few games I chopped due to Loader problems(Evo II), so I had to run my pull through squeagy through it and it cleaned it perfectly the firt time. So after usingthis barrel compareed to my stock barrel it is alot more accurate and easy to clean. And the SS inserts are very strong. My brother has the aluminum inserts and they feal like they are very brittle, but the SS ones feal very strong kinda like you could step on one and it wouldn't bend or dent. The only reason I put weight for a weakness is because one insert weights about as much as the aluminum back and 12" AA front together. It isn't really a weakness but for people that want their guns to be as lightweight as possible, as in they will buy one part over the other cause it's 3 grams less, buy the aluminum ones.
All in all, this is a great barrel kit. So if your looking for a barrel that will get you shooting right up next to the bunkers, buy this barrel.

Can match any paint
Nothing i can find
Well i got this barrel so i can have no problem upgrading later. I found that even though my gun isn't all that great, it is still very, very accurate. My old barrels were nice, but they don't compare. The ability to match any paint to the barrel is amazing.
I recommend The Freak Kit to anyone and everyone. If you want unparalleled accuracy, with any gun, then get this kit. You will be thankful!!

You can change bore size
To me i think this is the best barrel i have used especially on my fenix...this barrel has awsome accuracy and looks great...some people say that it is too heavy but if you have a blow-back marker like me, this barrel will actually take away some kick back. I love that no matter what size paint you get you will have the right size barrel...I used to have to make sure i got paintballs that were .689 bore but now it doesnt matter what size. Also on the field it is a huge confidence builder. This barrel turns heads more than most other barrels too...people always ask me how well it performs, the price, and if it works as good as it looks...In my opinion i love this barrel and its the only barrel i will use now
now onto the weaknesses:
Pretty much the only weakness i have come accross so far is the price. I am sure that after a lot of use an instert will wear out and need to be replaced and insterts are pretty expensive too. With really really crappy paint this barrel doesnt have awesome accuracy like it does with nice paint...my cousin used Blue Streaks in it one time and they werent goin as straight as when we were usin GAP.
I would reccomend this barrel to anyone that is willing to fork out $220 bucks for a barrel (it is well worth it)...this barrel looks great, feels great, sounds great, and performs extremely well (unless you are using wal-mart paint). The Stainless Steal inserts are much more durable than the aluminum insterts and last a lot longer. This barrel kit is very easy to take care of and comes with a nice hard plastic case.
AWSOME BARREL KIT! price a lil too much for some people other than that it looks, feels, sounds, and performs GREAT!!!!!BUY IT NOW IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH MONEY!!!!

Ans gx-4 with oracle bolt, kapp back block, free flow qev, boomstick, freak kit, 68/45.
Any paintball. Has all the inserts
Doesnt dent easily
This barrel is sick!!!!!! Sooooo light. Lighter then the boomstick that I have currently on my Gx-4. Though boomy maybe accurate it is mad heavy and freak is more accurate because the inserts let you use any size paint. Stainless is also stronger then the aluminum. So it doesnt dent.

All guns run the stainless steel Freak barrel system with 12 or 10" All-American front
and my Ricochet Apache and Java 88/4500 hpa system.
I haven't had a problem with any so far.
Perfect ball to barrel matching
Higher tolerance than the aluminum inserts, more accurate
This kit is very nice, i shoot a variety of balls and have not found a paint I couldn't match.
Accuracy is improved drastically over stock barrels and the versatility is pricelss.
I have 12" and 10" fronts and it is really nice to be able to switch them depending on what I need at that moment.
If you want to spend the extra money to never have to buy another barrel then this is perfect for you. stainless inserts are much togher and are made with a much higher tolerance. Buy this kit and you will have no worries abount paint matching.
