The Freak Barrel is designed to fit any paint. There are eight different full length inserts for the back of the barrel to accommodate virtually any bore size paint. You can purchase the whole kit (Freak Deluxe Barrel Kit), or you can purchase the inserts individually. You can also choose from 4 different lengths, and assorted colored fronts. Splash colors will be available in Winter 2000. The barrel comes with one insert. Standard bore sizes are listed below:
Other kits, or two piece barrels
68/4500 PE Tank
Any good ones, well any, since it's a changeable bore
Price(but if bought used, it's great)
The main strength about a freak barrel, or kit, is it's bore changing, which causes the paintball to barrel match to be better, which increases accuracy, concluding the dynamo status.
The accuracy is just liek anyother good high-end barrel, this being a dynamo.
Fronts are changeable, which makes it great, if you play back or front, back having a 14" or fron 10" or 12" is good.
The two weaknesses that i found are the weight and price. The weight is not much of a factor if you have a shocker or an alias, but if you have an impulse like me, then you know. and the price, my reccomandation is, DO NOT BUY NEW, why pay 300(canadian, like 230 american) for a new one, while a used one costing 150-200(like 110-140 american) is much cheaper, and is basically the exact same thing, jsut that it's used, and liek 2 or 3 scratches is nuthin, like who cares, who's gunna see anyway.
This it the kit to go with because it's so 'upgradable' i guess, and is great in accuracy, but always BUY USED...

pain to get off my gun but all 2-piece barrels are on cockers
The freak kit is the best kit out there. It's light, accurate, and it looks real nice. It is much better that a pipe kit which is good, but very disappointing. It's not as accurate as the freak and it is not as interchangeable. Although you need to fork over $180 for the freak kit, it's well worth it. It basically garuntees accuracy without any balls popping in your barrel.
This is the best barrel kit availible. It's better than the pipe, kaner, the dye barrels and although I haven't used a scepter, I'll just assume its better. haha
-dye boomstick- pretty hot
-Jt 2 piece- pretty good, but a bit shy of the boomstick

any high end paint with a consistent bore size, I prefer Hellfires
none, maybe the price tag
This thing is awesome, it is definately worth the $$, it is accurate down to about 8 inches, even with broken balls, it still flies straight and true, but u gotta use high end paint, or else it wont work because of the changing bore sizes. THis looks really cool, and I love the options of an aluminum bakc, and any color all american front, that makes it match your gun, and the inserts are colored, which is pretty cool. Plus, if you have a cocker, its kinda hard to get the back half of a 2 piece barrel off with the pneumatics there, and the freak has "FREAK" engraved all the way through it, so you can just put an allen key through and turn it. this thing rocks
Buy it if you can afford it, definately worth the $$$, if you cant get enough dough, then go with the dye ultralite

anything you can get your hands on
You can match any paint with it, which means accuarcy. Need i say more
Insert are week, now make a stainless steel version, but of course costs more
I would recommend this barrel to anyone. It you can get the imperial paintball undertow bolt, it works amazing with the the freak. The system is the best barrel system i have shot and i have seen almost every barrel because i work at a shop. I have never heard anyone dis the freak system and i don't understand why people are giving it bad reviews because it rocks
IT IS SWEET, save up for one, and remember to check bore sizes when you use a new case of paint so you don't run into problems

anything since interchangable sleeves
any ball size works, pretty quite, finds right sleeve shots like bullets
gotta take out the sleeves and kinda make signs of use on the sleeve
first time i used it did know how to bore size paint so it was alittle off. but then i figured it out and i was shooting bullets i love this system can do any kind of paint and sends them straight. Its is also pretty quite with paint in it can send paint right to the spot i want it plus with an angel i can put alot of paint in the exact same spots
Great Barrel system recommend it to any one. has everything that you would want in a barrel system. shoots very straight with the right insert

A lot of people say the price, but its not that bad.
When i first tryed the barrel, it was on some pro's Angel, I instantly new i had to have it!
I was able to peg even can sized objects in one or two shots from 100+ feet. I wanted one so bad, but all the guns that could fit the Freak were $700+ dollars. I purchased the A-5 in February as soon as it came out, and foolishly bought the boomstick. I liked its acuracy, but when i got my ghilie suit, the loudness of the BOOM ruined my chances of being a sniper. The day smart parts decided to make an A-5 Freak thread, i was already harrasing them. When i got it, i put it to the test, It was early spring, and the squirrels were out getting nuts. Well one was running along the top of my neighbors fence, and i pegged it in one shot. This barrel is the most accurate barrel i have ever fired, EVER. It is also quit as hell. You can shoot a dog, and it won't even know where its being shot at from. I learned that drill from www.pbsniper.com, best place for sniper to go.
Best barrel on the Market. Going to test the All-American barrels my cousins got. No wonder even Angels use freak barrels!!!

any well except be but if u wanted to any
u can shoot any paint and it iz really nice and great for tourneys
ok i found nothing wrong with this barrel and people that damage the inserts are probaly clumsy or are doing somthing wrong,but if u drop then on a hard rock or a really hard surface it will dent but i have not had this problem cause i take good care of my stuff but it is hard to dent them at that this barrel iz the best ok u will b very happy with it i promise u i think it is probably the best barrel out there but that iz my opinion.OK well it iz really nice because u can use any paint and it will shoot nice and no balls rolling out of the barrel,it iz really nice for the tournments that i go to and just tournements because u usally dont get to pick your paint therefore where ever u go u will always b fine it is almost like having 8 barrels but not it is really nice
i think this iz a great barrel and iz a good investment it will pay for itself saving your but wen you ned it best trust me u won't regret it i didn't

Even Wal-Mart paint shoots ok in the Freak (but I wouldn't reccomend trying it)
Any size paint
If for some reason you do break paint, you have to run water thru it.
This is one amazing barrel, I've shoot quite a few barrels in my time, and nothing compares to the Freak system. I've shot it on an Impulse, Matrix, 2k2 E-Cocker, Pirahna, and Rebel. It works great on ANY gun. One of the great things about it is, for multiple gun owners like me, is that if you get a new back, you've got a totally new barrel for a differnt gun, Ive got an Impulse, Cocker, and Tippmann back. Compare that to buying boomsticks for each. In the rare occasion that you DO break a ball, it can be a pain to clean sometimes, with mine, im out of the game. Thank god I only break about once every 2 or 3 cases of paint.
I give it 9 out of 10 because of the paint cleaning annoyance.
This is a GREAT barrel for the money. I would reccomend this to anyone, especially multiple gun owners

LOL, ummmmmmm u can use any.....
Overall its a great barrel system.
None. Some say the inserts bend........ not with me.
Ok, What can i really say about this system besides its only the best one out there. I LOVE THE FREAK!!!! I will never use any other barrel. 8 inserts that are color coded for size. Some people say that they bend easy but i havent bent any and the 5 other people that have it on my team havent bent any eather. I wouldnt be able to live with out a freak. If you have a cocker it can be a pain sometimes because when u turn it the front will come off without the back but i got used to taking it off.
This is an awesome system im never going with anything else. Unless ............. naw this is the best ever.
Currently a Custom 98 with revy,X-chamber,double trigger,and Carbon Fiber 14" barrel.I'm in the process of making a custom mag--Now have the mag complete with freak,8 hole valve.
Any that are consistently round.Thats the whole point.
Able to use all size paints and it is very versital.
Expensive,not the most sturdy,just be careful with it.
I just got my Freak a few days ago and have not had a chance to play a game with it yet but my brother and I were out messing around with it and found it to be very accurate,quiet,and just plain cool.Right now I have a 12 inch but I have a 16 on the way so that should make my mag all the more quiet.What more could you want,quiet-accurate-looks good-able to shoot any paint.This is the last barrel I'll ever get most likely,unless they start to make them in stainlee steel,then they would be perfect.
Awsome barrel,save your money and get one.It may seem like a lot at first but I've seen kids spend alot more on barrels and not have as much variety or look as good on there gun.
