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:
Use any size paint
Get to choose the type of front.
Aluminum is a bit weak must be careful.
Price is a little much
well this barrel is a huge upgrade from my progressive. The inserts are my best friend : ) i cant believe how accurate it was when i matched it up right. Also this barrel is verry accurate about 2" to 4" seperation from 65 feet. Also you get to choose the front you want! i picked the AA front. The looks is also very cool and distinctive. Everyone knows the barrel right when they see it. The only bad thing is that the aluminum is very fragile. You should take real care of it. The price is a little too much but you get wat u pay for.
this is obviously one of the top barrel systems out there. This is a must for any tourney player. get it. Its so accurate its " FREAKY " hahah how corny.

2002 wgp autococker with blade triggerframe, black magic reggy, orracle 3 way, superfly bolt, freak system
whats weird now since u bout the nice barrel u need really nice paint
shoots any paint ok
extremly hard to clean fast
well really bang for the buck. still hard to clean get the 14 inch barrel and ull love it and people will look up to u. well its telling me to put more words in so i am sooo umm hope u have fun with this barrel go bunker someone
one and final saying buy the best barrel then buy some of the nicest paint
SP tear drop. BOMB (still a good barrel), CP, Dye, you name it.
My current is an orracle cocker with freak, PE tank, and an EVO II
Whatever you want, fits anything.
Great fitting systems, options, accuracy.
Inserts can be damaged.
Bought mine when they came out initialy for an 2k1 rf cocker. It worked great with any paint. Since then it has been on 3 other guns including my favorite, the orracle. You just can't beat the barrel. It is quiest, accuracy fits well, ubelievable well made for what you pay now (170 online for a full kit, all aluminum) and I've never had an issue with it. All problems I thought I had with the barrel, later turned out to be the paint or the gun, or my inability to size paint correcltly.
If you want the maximum ability to size and aren't so clumsy as to drop the insert and then step on it (some people I know) then get this barrel. YOU SIMPLY CAN'T GO WRONG.
Wonderfull piece of equipment, a must for me when I play. I JUST CAN'T PLAY AS WELL WITHOUT MY FREAK.
CP Barrel Kit, Long Shots, Big Shots, Armsens, and most Dye barrels
-2k2 Red/Black Fade Custom Milled GZ Timmy w/ WAS Board and everything
-Impulse w/ unfortuently about every imaginable upgrade on it (not much you can to to improve them anymore than they are outta the box, but they are nice guns)
-Ends up cheaper than buying nice extra barrels for guns if you own more than one.
-Allows you to use almost whatever paint you want (as long as its in descent condition it'll work)
-Much more consistancy over the chrono
-Accuracy is a bit better than other barrels ive used
-Effiecincy is better
-Looks great, and can match your marker
-Can be changed to an appropriate length/color/insert/gun backing in almost no time
-Im sure theres more im forgetting
nothing you wouldnt have with any other barrel, price seems a bit high at first but there are reasons, and the price is fairly cheap as you'll read below.
Buy it, the price seems a bit high, but when u use it you'll see why they've sold so many. And if you have several guns the price actually ends up cheaper than buying new barrels for each gun seperate. The people that rank this a 1 or 2 either have never used one and are jealous in some way, didnt take care of it in the least, or had a 1 in 10000 chance of getting maybe a faulty one, but i bet thats not the reason:)
Total freak kit is a great barrel kit w/ everything you need.
I'm selling my Total freak kit for the A5. Send me an email if you are intrested. I used it only once and it is in perfect condition...It doesn't even have a scratch on it. The lowest price I have seen it sold for is 179.99 on the internet. I will sell the kit for 140.00. I have the receipt that I purchased it less than a month ago.
-sticker placement, other than that, i have not found ANY
This barrel has been amazing for me so far. I find the accuracy unbelievable (although, i have never tried any bore changing barrels before) and i have shot almost 8 cases through it already and i have yet to break a ball. It greatly decreases the volume of my shots (compared to other barrels, you must also keep in mind that impulses are low-pressure, so they would naturally be quieter than any other high-pressure based marker). I love the ability to change the length by switching out the fronts. I have a 14 inch for normal play and i have a 12 inch for front play during tournaments. The only thing that REALLY annoys me about the Freak is that it has stickers on it, and i dont know if their supposed to be this way or not, but the stickers are slightly rotated to the right and it REALLY REALLY bugs me that they are not perfectly aligned. They do not make any difference whatsoever for performance (obviously) but some of us like our equipment to perform good, and look good too. I have not read a great deal into the Jr. Freak simply because i needed the full set, but if you are just a rec player and you REALLY REALLY want a freak, i suggest the Jr. Freak. The price difference is pretty big and from what i know now, the Jr. Freak is pretty much the same thing as the full kit just missing a few things. For tournament players - this is the barrel kit for you. I strongly reccomend it. Just be sure to keep the inserts in the case, because i have heard of them being on the floor and having someone step on them, causing them to bend or dent.
REC PLAYERS - LOOK INTO THE JR. FREAK
TOURNY PLAYERS - THIS IS YOUR BARREL
If you dont know why i am saying this, you obviously havent read my review yet...

The quality of the Freak is pretty good. I've heard stories that the inserts were easy to bend and break but they aren't. It came in a nice little Freak Case and has inserts in the foam for the inserts and barrel. The foam isn't really cut all too well but I can get over that. The barrel is really sleek looking too.
The accuracy is really good. I was using a Walmart brand paint and I was able to keep it withing a 1 ft target using a VS3 and shooting 13 bps, so thats pretty good if you aske me. The inserts help the accuracy a lot because they keep the ball straight which, in turn, creates a extremely accurate gun.
This thing made my VS3 a lot quieter with all the porting, I got the 14 in one and the whole barrel front is porting. Which is like 6,7, or 8 in of porting. It has 4 rows of porting with slits inbetween those rows.
The inserts are sturdy, and really accurate. The insert sizes are: .695, .693, .691, .689, .687, . 684, .682, .679. All of the inserts are a different color which makes the barrel look a whole lot better. I am freezing paint now and will post how it does with that later.
nothing with inserts, flatline, boomstick, Custon products...
Tippmann A-5 W/ rt
20 oz Co2
BSA Red Dot Scope
14in Freak Barrel
anything... isnt that what the inserts are for?
if ya really want one... draxuss
Inserts can be damaged -they do have staineless option
cant shoot ducks in the air?
The Freak Barrel is very good i tested my friends 18in Barrel on my A-5 and i figured it was great on accuracy. he paid 109 for his and only got 1 insert. this barrel was way too long and made my gun look pretty funny. im gonna laugh when we play woods ball when he hits this on a tree. i was impressed with the acurracy and how quiet it was. i got one for myself with the 14in AA front... this is even quieter. for the barrel it is great for all players and you can different backs if you have multiple guns or diffrent length fronts if you want. it may just become better than the boomstick.
great barrel and has many pluses over other barrels. if ya have a little extra cash i would recomend it to anyone who is looking for a better barrel

Spyder Victor, Freak barrel with SS back, Shocktech lpc, revy(midnight blue and black dust), 20oz co2.
RPS and Diablos
VERY accurate, customizable, differant bores.
This is the best barrel Ive ever used. But IMO its a lil overpriced. Just do what I did, I bought a back, front and one insert. This barrel is SO accurate. Plus, it looks awesome, if you get the Stainless Steel back like me. It is also customizable, you can change fronts, backs, and bores.
Great barrel! I would recomend it to anyone, if they feel like paying for it.

Ok i got this because my friend has a boom stick(witch is way better) the only reason i got this is because i wanted a new barrel and the shop i went to they had these so i got it now when i brought this home it went into the gun good and i went into my back yard and shot a couple of rounds and they were right on the target mabye like 1 or half a inch spred from about 2 to 25 feet away, now my friends boom stick can do all this from about 40 feet, now i have had it for about 3 months and some of the paint has scracthed off but thats ok, but my other friend ian has 1 and the first month he took a huge dive and it dented so if ur nto doing dives try not to hit this onto the ground, meow the price of this barrel is horible like really bad like u can get a boom stick for $50 cheeper so i recomend getting it but if this is all u can get then get it.
Its ok but not good get a boom stick cause dye is the obly way to go
