The barrel itself is a two piece, two step screw together masterpiece. The first 5 inches is what we call the control bore. (this is the distance that most experts agree is the most critical in a barrel) The second screw-in piece is called the universal tip. This tip is honed to a 0.700 bore diameter, thus allowing the blast of air to completely surround the ball, reshaping the ball spherical again.
The Custom Products Pro-Barrel System is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Well i bought this for my 2k4 cocker and it looks and works amazing. I could shoot someone across the field maybe 75 feet and it hit em right were i pointed it. Its also very quiet but i have an autococker and they normaly shoot quiet. It feels a little brittle but its ok if you dont bump into alot of things and you will be fine.
anyting that has smooth seams and HASN'T been sitting in your garage for months
i tested with DraXXus SFX Inferno and Zap Tork
Light, very very accurate
-Lack of porting
PROS:) CP makes great stuff and this barrel isn't any different. it can handle high(12bps) rates of fire keeping old zap torks inside a 2ft spread at 20yds. slowing my rate of fire i could hit a license plate every 2/3 shots or so. using my 03 VF hitting the target was cake.
CONS:( one of the old zaps broke in the barrel, no surprise. i kept shooting but the accuracy refused to get better after 10 shots. i know your not gonna have perfect aim with paint in your barrel but this was atrocious. the E-Pipe deffinatly handles broken paint better.
making a 5piece cp kit will cost u arond $155 which is just a tad expensive.

Very quiet, very very accurate, and a clean look
It's not in my mouth
I got a Full 5-Piece Kit from a friend for around $35 bucks. It works wonders. I was playing last Sunday, played with some old paint from Cup, and it still shot like the paint was fresh. There is simply no barrel kit to match this one. It cleans itself out within 4 or 5 shots, so you never lose game time. And the barrel backs come in good sizes for me. Being from Texas all I need is a .689 and a .691 and the others only when I go out of the state. I have used many a barrel before this one, but none of them have treated me this good.
I will probably never ever ever get rid of this kit, I may add an Ultralite tip to it for looks but other than that it is the best barrel system I have used in a while. They should change the name to the CP Wonder Kit
Imagine a Dye Ultralite. Then imagine you have 4 backs. Yeah buddddddy!!!
This is the best barrel system that I've owned, and used. I have a Freak kit, and it doesn't compare to this in looks, quality, weight, or accuracy. I have a 14" in dust silver, and it's a beauty. The back is Chrome in the newer version which is different from the picture shown. It's a much much better looking back than the previous version. I have the 05 year model.
If you wanted all the backs to fit all sorts of paint, you would be spending about 3 times as much as a Freak. So for your normal sized balls, getting a .689 and a .685 size back was perfect for me. I spent $90 on the 3 pieces, when I could have got the entire Freak for around that price.
It's a great barrel if you have the extra cash to spend. The quality of CP is definitely there, and the customer support couldn't be better.
anything works great. this barrel can handle anything from the 20$ paint from the local sporting goods store to the 60$ cases at the PSP events
Can use ANY type of paint.
The field wont get as much money from paint because i hit my targets easily
I recieved the barrel system with my intimidator that i bought of a guy that worked at CP.
(if you look at my setup then that will become obvious) When i first recieved the gun i set it up, adjusted everything to make it to my preferances, and then shot at my target.
OMG! It was amazing. I was shooting from across my yard(around 175 feet) and was creating a 6 inch diameter circle. remember thats from 175 feet. another huge plus is that its just plain sekc.
BUY it for sure. amazing accuracy for the tournament player, can shoot any level of paintballs for the recballer, and is low priced for any type of player.

Light, it comes in red, it shoots darts.
So after I got an unlucky powdercoated barrel on my Ion and had a horrible day with barrel breaks I decided too get a new barrel, so I did some searching around and settled on a CP two piece. Well when I first got it I noticed the package it cam in was very nice yay, well I've shot it many times since then and have to say it shoots darts, almost one ball on top of another. Much better than my stock Ion barrel, no breaks either.
I say this is my favorite barrel so far and if you are looking for a new one get it.
I have used a freak barrel kit on my ion and this compares greatly with it and performs just as well if not better.
I use a Smart Parts Ion
Freak Barrel Kit
New Designs Trigger
It is very accurate and effective, quite light also.
None, i broke a ball and it shot through it amazingly not losing any accuracy.
This is a great product that is very effective and should be used with an ion. I loved it and was impressed because I haven't been particularly impressed with CP products lately. I thought it was amazing and recommend. GREAT DEAL!!! Amazing Accuracy and weightlessness. I am a veteran player and I think that you should look in to this barrel to improve both your skills and your markers.

Doesn't matter what you choose with this system, even the cheap stuff will work good. However I always recommend buying the best you can afford.
Inserts too short for a cocker, hard to get off
After using a freak system for several months (very good setup), I had the opportunity one Saturday to test the CP barrel kit. I liked my freak, but the durability was always in question. After blowing 10 balls through several of the inserts, I found my match. It didn't take long to figure out this was one accurate system. My first target was 75 feet away and a rope of balls landed right on top of each other. Moving further back another 25 feet or so, more than 90% of what I shot again hit the exact same spot. This was right before game play started, and all I heard was a group of guys complaining I was just intimidating everyone. Ha! If they only knew it was just a test! Anyway, I borrowed the barrel for a few games and became hooked. If I could see it, I could almost be assured of hitting it! Feet, hands, top of heads, butts, whatever I could see, people were raising their hands and walking off the field. I now own two complete sets (different colors) and couldn't be happier. With a 10" 12" 14" and 16" inch front, no matter how you play there will be a perfect match for your marker.
For the price, strength, accuracy, and choices, this is a no brainer. Try one at your local field, you won't be unhappy with this system. I'm only giving the rating a 9 because no barrel is perfect yet........

Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy, and it can shoot through breaks pretty well too.
i got this barrel used online, since my brother got a cp one piece and said it was great and for 5 bores and 2 fronts it was a great deal. when i shot it i couldn't believe how accurate it was, especially since i had been using a freak for several months. the interchangeable backs are much sturdier than the inserts (on the other hand with inserts you only have to buy another back if you switch guns instead of a whole new kit). the backs have o-rings at the tops of the threads to stop them from unscrewing, which works, and yet despite the fact that i've got an autococker, which makes unscrewing barrels tough sometimes because of the front block, it's never gotten stuck on my gun. this thing is the most accurate barrel i've tried, better than the J&J Edge that came with my gun and better than my freak. also, with the freak if you get paint in it no amount of firing will clear the barrel out at all, the cp shoots clean much more easily. you've still got to squeegie it out, but it won't destroy your chances in the middle of a game.
This gets a 10 out of 10. Best accuracy i've ever seen, shoots clean fairly easily, and even though i got this used after trying it i would buy it at retail price, it's definitely worth it.
