Strengths: i bought the complete kit, aluminum 12 inch for angel,anodized blue,its very light,shoots amazingly straight and fairly quiet,as of yet its the best shooting barrel ive seen.
Weaknesses: $230 at paintballgear anodized blue (complete kit) and the sleeves (inserts) are cheap looking/feeling probably easy to dent so be careful.
Conclusion: for the most part its a nice kit,looks cool and shoots great,if youve got the extra cash,buy it.

Strengths: Price:Eight barrels for around $220. What else needs to be said?. Most tourney players have at least three barrels that total in cost over $220. Once you buy it you will never have to worry about buying anouther barrel, even if you switch guns. Just buy a new back portion and your set.
Accuracy: With good paint and the right insert it shoot a very thight shot group. I couldn't believe the improvement over my stock barrel.
Looks: I think mine looks Sexy Baby. The engraving on the inserts shows through the window on the back part wich is cool, and there is also a little smart parts cross thing beside that. The engraving is very light on the inserts, so much so that I thought it was painted on. Since its engraved you don't have to worry about it coming off later after a lot of use.
Noise: Very quite. It reduced the noise of my angel to a whisper.
Weight: Its very light compared to a boomstick.
Ball breakage: Iv'e only had ball breaks with some very krappy paint in cold weather. Even with poor paint you just go to a larger size insert and this usually stops the breaks.
Weaknesses: Some will say the price is too high and that's true if you own a $100 paintgun or only play rec once every four months. My inserts are a little difficult to get out and almost ipossible if a ball breaks "wich is rare", but other owners ive asked don't seem to have this problem with theirs.
Conclusion: I use my 12" freak on an angel lcd and have had no problem with mine except for the inserts being difficult to get out. Any paint will work with it and thats the best part of owning it. I never have to worry about paint to barrel match. Just $220 and no more barrel problems. I would put my freak up againsed any other barrel out there. I give it a very high recommendation. Before you go spending $90 to $120 on a single high end barrel save a little more and get the freak. you will not be disapointed.

Strengths: This barrel is the best to hit the market ever.Or should i say barrels.If you want to spend the money like i did you can get different colors,lenghts,bore sizes,you can buy different back parts of the barrel to accomadate different guns,and you can even get an all american front and a tear drop front.It is like 15-20 barrels in one.The accurcy was fantastic,and the barrel was very quiet.I experinced very little barrel breaks only about two and that was out of about six thousand rounds.
Weaknesses: The price is very expensive,if you want all these barrels in one.I suggest getting another job.
Conclusion: Awsome if you can afford it.Many options,great accurcy,quiet,and little barrel breaks.What more can you ask for in a barrel.Nothing so that is why i recomend it to anyone who can afford it.And if you can't they make a starter kit with just the barrel and one bore size.Any way you buy it it is defentinally worth it.

Strengths: This sucker shoots anything. With all the different inserts, find the right match is no problem. With the tear drop end it's dead quite, all you hear is the "click, click" of my cocker. As long as the barrel is clean this thing shoots straight as an arrow.
Weaknesses: I could do without the looks, I don't particularly like the tear drop look. And I've actually had a batch of El Tigre's that wouldn't even fit down the largest insert, probably the ball not the barrel. Once you get a break, its all over, the porting is almost impossible to clean without a hose. It also costs a small fortune, but this is the only barrel you'll ever need.
Conclusion: I wouldn't hesistate to reccommend this to anyone, I've only broken 2 balls in the barrel and they were because of double feeds, stupidity on my part. I'm gonna go get myself a shorter front piece in red to match my cocker. If you like shooting an assortment of paint definitely get this barrel, much cheaper than getting 3 or 4 boomsticks.

3 out of 4 people found this review helpful.
Strengths: Shot pretty much every paint through the paint. Whether it be smelly paintball, soggy paintballs, big paintballs, fat paintballs, skinny paintballs, grande taco bell paintballs, week old paintball, two week old paintballs, pmi paintballs, team color paintballs, marballizer paintballs, and all other crap paintballs and haven't broke a paint yet. The freak I must say has been the best barrel set I have ever purchased. With 8 different sizes to choose from to match your paint, you can't go wrong. Get one now and you won't be disappointed. If you do, then just come back and flame away. For everyone I have known who has them, they have enjoyed and recommended it! Come try it for yourself! Get one now! As far as looks go, it has sweet tear drop look! Two piece (front and back) that will also comes in color if you choose to but standard is black. The inserts on the other hand are colored coordinated with the bore size but it's no big deal because it "inserts" into the standard black or colored backend.

Oh yeah, they also have different barrel sizes for them.

Other than that, this should help.
Weaknesses: Well...price.
Conclusion: Have any questions, email me. It's the most direct way of getting an answer.
