The Scepter is simply the most revolutionary barrel design ever created and the last barrel you will ever need. The patented features of the Scepter solve every major problem ever associated with a paintball gun barrel.
Features like a front load, compression lock sleeve which eliminates any chance of the sleeve turning or shifting while firing, a self-align system which precisely aligns the bore of the sleeve with the bore of the muzzle, providing a perfectly straight flight line for the ball to travel, color coded inserts to match any size paint, and mirror honed bores for consistency, accuracy and range.
Choose below which bore size, tip length and color option you would like.
Avilable bore Sizes: .680" .684", .686", .688", .690" and .692" and .696"
The Powerlyte Scepter Barrel System 2007 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Any choice of paint
I was going to buy an ultralite, but wanted bore sizeing capibilities, I was going to buy a stiffi, but wanted to be able to through it around, so i did my researching, and decided that the powerlyte scpeter was the best for the money. I got the full seven insert barrel in all gloss black, to match my vice, It has the cleanest looks of any barrel, other than the ultralite. It is just as quiet and just as accurate as them too, and because of the perfect gloss finish and the perfect bore matching, you can clear any breaks with in 5 shots, so like .5 seconds. All for the leasurely price of $109.99
I would reccomend this barrel to any player who wants gane the accuracy advantage, and wants all the avantages of all other barrels/kits on the market.
Freak with All-American front - Good, but Scepter is better for price
2006 Smart Parts Progressive - I loved this barrel, but it's a single piece so it can't use all paint

Any, it's a kit
Haven't found any so far
This barrel is awesome. I got it $108 shipped on Ebay. For that price you get seven inserts, a carrying case, and the barrel, what a steal. It's nice because it's one of the higher end barrel kits and one of the cheaper ones as well. People have been saying that the Freak isn't that great, but I have never had any problems with it when I tested it. Nonetheless, I found this barrel kit when matched with the inserts and paint to be just as accurate.
From what I've seen so far I love this barrel. There is no barrel kit out there better for the price you pay. If you are looking for a new barrel kit look into the Powerlyte Scepter or the Empire Revolver, the same thing. The only differences is the Empire Revolver is just more expensive, comes with 2 less bores, but a neat carrying case)

Before I heard about the Scepter, I was using a freak because I believed that the insert system was the most cost efficient way to go, allowing many bores with a single barrel.
When I first received my freak however, I was dissapointed that the inserts were held in place using 2 O rings. When looking down the front of the barrel, I found that it was near impossible to perfectly line up the Barrel front with the insert in the barrel back.
It was a far cry from the perfection that was my Lapco Snapshot.
Then I heard about the Scepter kit, and how they used the front to screw into the back and lock the inserts into place. I did some research, and found that MANN from pbnation also did a huge test on many barrels and found the scepter to be superb.
With all the great reviews, and tests done, I decided to purchase a kit. To my surprise, I was able to find a 7 insert kit on Ebay for 100 dollars brand new.
The kit has yet to let me down, and I feel like the standard of quality over at Powerlyte is above many barrels I've used before.
Accuracy was top notch, barrel seemed pretty quiet on my Ego, and the anno is high quality and flawless.
I reccomend this barrel kit if you can afford it. It is handsdown the best insert based kit available.
ego 07 with crossfire 70/45 tank and powerlight septor o7 kit
This is the best kit i have found out there. the kit comes in a nice compact case that will hold 7 incerts 4 fronts and 2 backs. the incerts load into the backs from the front and when you screw the front on it locks the incert in place. the workmanship is great. i have had little problems shooting thrugh any breaks. it is a little louder then a freak but not that bad. the accuracy is ball on ball with a good match.
For the money it is a 10 and stands above the rest, for over all it is comparebal to the freak, so if you have a freak stay with it, if you are looking for a kit or to upgrade to a better onethis is the best bang for the $

I heard great things about the older version of the Scepter so I held out and waited months and months for this kit to be released. Boy am I glad I did. This thing shoots ball on ball. It also clears breaks in 2 or 3 balls as well. Its quieter than my J&J was and the finish is great.

The Scepter barrel is without a doubt one of the best barrel systems out there. If you don't believe me, check the ultimate barrel test on pbnation.com
At about 20-30 yards, I was getting dead on accuracy shot after shot on my Promaster. It looks great and it cleans itself if you chop (which i did accidentally because too many paintballs on barrel after taking out bolt in between games>.<) after about 3-4 shots its clean and back to perfect accuracy
As for sound, I can't really tell cuz my gun is louder than most other guns but it did soften the sound quite a bit compared to stock barrel(DM'S, Timmys, egos)
Great Barrel if you can afford it. Its better than the Freak and any other barrel kit out there. Customer service is great to. I had a defect on one of the bores and they sent one out no questions asked

ACCURATE, QUITE, Well Built, looks good
Diffrent bore size tip (typical of barrel kits) causes cleaning problems with squeegees.
This is the first barrel kit i have used it suprised me at just how accurate the barrel could actually shoot. (30 yards had a grouping of just under 6 inches with sight). After about 100 balls i broke one do to the cheapness of paint (walmart BIG BALLS~dont buy them no matter what~) shot about 5 times and pretty much cleared its self out but had a problem with breaks from then on for about 200 balls.
I got some paint from one of my friends (Nelson ?cant remember what called?) and shoot a perfect 500 with out a break with the barrel clean.
If you dont have a kit and would like one buy this it locks in all bore sizers and just looks cool on all guns.
Anything works...as long as you use the correct bore size.
None...maybe just the current available backs but that is only my personal preference.
I did a lot of research before I chose this barrel kit and I was also looking for something that was under $150 and looked good on my E*Tek. I ordered this barrel kit on a Monday morning and it arrived by Thursday night. When I got the package I opened it and it came with a nice case that had fittings for the 7 backs, 2 extra barrel fronts and the back. I was really impressed because the finish (dust black) matched my E*Tek and the insides of the entire barrel system had a very nice mirror finish.
So Friday was the big day to use the kit for the first time and I was using premium paint first and then toxic paint. I tried matching the bore with the paint and the first game I played I had barrel breaks and the paintballs would curve maybe 15-20 feet in front of me. Even though I had some barrel breaks the barrel is self cleaning and I was still able to shoot through the breaks! It was a lil embarrassing at first but then I realized I was using the wrong back. So I switched it out and the whole night I was shooting wonders. Ever since then I still have a great time using this barrel.
The accuracy of the barrel is very good. I purchased a 12" front first and next is going to be a 14" front. As you know the longer the barrel the longer the paintball is guided to it's target. The set up and break down of the barrel system is very fast and easy; select the correct bore size and drop it in the back, twist the front and the back together and your set.
The most satisfying thing that I noticed was the price. Very good and reasonable for a kit and for someone who is on a budget. I bought the 5 piece kit and it totalled out to under $150. I lied to my g.f. about buying the kit for less than $100 but hopefully she doesn't read this or else. I'm definitely going to buy the rest of the backs and another front in the future...great job powerlyte!
I recommend this kit to anyone and everyone who is looking for a barrel kit. The Powerlyte barrel system is by far a great investment for you and your marker. A good looking barrel kit and the entire 7 piece kit totallying out to under $150 w/ free shipping is a steal. Thank you Powerlyte!!!
Okay, I bought this barrel kit after reading dozens of good reviews on it. However when I got it in the mail I was appalled. First off, all of the inserts had rough burrs and a lot of streaking inside. Second, the inserts did not sit all the way into the back, they stopped short of the back at about 3/8 of an inch. Third, the back did not screw into my gun flush, when the back was screwed into my gun I could fit a penny in the crack between barrel and marker. Fourth the tips have an O-Ring on them that is meant to seal the two halves, the back was machined so poorly that the O-Ring made no contact with the back at all. I was like, okay, I got a factory defect. I sent the whole kit back to Powerlyte thinking it was a factory defect, they call me about 4 days later and tell me this is how they make them, that the offsets are there for a reason, so I get my money back and buy a Freak kit.
I do not recommend this product to anyone, if you want something that is the same concept but better quality get the Empire Revolver, also though I hate to say it, the Freak kit is not half bad.
If you want a barrel that wont screw into your gun all the way with terrible blow by and inserts the could break paint then by all means get this!
I give this barrel a 2 because it sucks but it comes with a nice case.
