This Barrel is so nice, accurate as all get out, it blows all other barrels I have used out of the water. I just put this on my gun, shot whole bunch balls thru it. man it's crazy. I was sceptical at first being it was only 8" long... I was dead wrong this barrel is the best barrel I have ever used. Plus it's so short you can stick it right around a bunker and fire away, it's not like you have a telephone pole, sticking out to where you are reaching out and playing tag with it. Don't be afraid to buy this barrel you won't be dissapointed...
Look at everyone eles they are saying it's better then their boomies and freaks $150.00 to $200.00 for those barrels I have never used those barrels but that is what they'r saying. So just go get one like me you won't be dissopionted

proteam sleeper with power feed,orracle bolt,black magic in line reg.,outkast lpr ,sto ram,bomb 3 way,
anything thing you want
flexibility- can use any paint
I'm amazed by how accurate this little barrel is.It shoot as well as my 12 inch CP.Accuracy at short and medium range was great.But is suffered at longer ranges.But it 's only 8 inches so I can't fault barrel.The inserts are made of steel ,coated Teflon and are very smooth and slick.The inserts fit into the barrel very precisely with not slack or wobble.
It's a great barrel system selling at a good price.Just make sure that they have in stock when you order
excellent distance, inserts are better than freak. much better durability than freak
not one thing, the barrel is great
i would recommend this to anyone. much easier than freak system, much easier,phenomenal usage on field. i didnt break a single ball in that barrel. the inserts are not aluminum like the freak. the inserts are impossible to break unless u do something major to them unlike the freak.
this barrel is a 10 and nothing can be better than this because these inserts are impossible to break and its much easier to use instead of trying to get an oring for the freak front to fit the back, its on piece
Sleeves are spartan...strong, solid, no-nonsence. They won't bend on you.
The Equation Biserk
What a stinker, I wanted to avoid getting a freak, figured I'd find a diamond in the rough with the Biserk. Wow, I hated it. I was so Willey Coyote trying to hit the road runner out there. My Biserk, for whatever reason (probably the lack of a rubber seal) came unscrewed twice every game leading to mad chopping. It's 8 inches long, good size for some things, not for paintball barrels. If you chop a ball in this thing, open your hopper, take out your balls and start throwing them at people. I hope some people have a good experience with this barrel. I can only speak of mine. It seems to be love it or hate it with this thing. I'm sending mine back to Acme now that I've gone Freak (meep meep!)
I hate to be a hater, but do more research before committing to this barrel. Some persons comment that any dummy should know to put a rubber o-ring on their barrel to correct the problem of it unscewing itself during play. That's fine. Pay 100 dollars for a barrel that lacks the quailty to do something so simple for you. Figure that logic out.

Freak, Lap co, CP
I thought these barrels where great at one time...LMAO!!
Dye - AutoCocker,
Not many upgrades and I really dont like typing them all in.!
Any paintballs well work, since you can change bore sizes
I love this barrel, its so small and accurate its amazing. I play mid and front and diving around with it is so much easier than having an 14+ barrel. The distance I get from it is unbelievable for as short the barrel is, its unreal.
It's a great all around barrel. Highly recommended for anyone that plays speedball. Shipping was fast and on time. They must be getting cought up with all there orders cause them people below me arent to happy-=(
let's just say this isn't the first barrel i've used.
8th gen silver bushy w/ red/blue splash and sonic asa and detent, palmer stabilizer, equation bizerk, tko d/f
shoots incredibly well for an 8" barrel. Shoots 90%% after chopping after firing about 10 shots- no squeegee needed. inserts aren't aluminum like other "ehem" expensive barrel systems. But this ISN'T expensive-less than $85 w/ three inserts of your choosing. Some other review(s) said the silver/clear looks horrible, BUT mine looks great. I had a couple of people asking about it and where to get one.
I haven't seen anything to complain about it right now, except it suffers at long distances. What do you expect with an 8" though? A 10" is available now. Yes, it took a month to get mine, but it wasn't Equation's fault, it was the company i ordered it through.
So far, I love it. No real problems. Fits all paints. Under $85. best barrel overall i've shot. nuf said. might wanna order it real soon if you want to have it before mid august!
Any, you can match any balls to this thing as long as you have the right insert for it
First thing, its very short, i was surprised when i saw the thing because i thought it was an insert. You can match the barrel to any paint like the freak except the inserts aren't cheap alluminum and won't break. The shortness of this thing makes it easily maneuverable so you can get into the smallest of bunkers. You might think that the shortness of this barrel would cause your fps to drop but it doesn't.
+Dead on accurate
+Inserts for paint matching
Ok, this company needs to pull it together. This thing took like 2 months to get after I ordered the freakin thing. They kept saying "we'll ship it out tomorrow" like 5 times. I was a little upset when i saw the barrel was black instead of clear, which is what i ordered, but the black looks cool so its okay. What really made me mad was the third insert, .689 was missing and there were huge drill scratches in the part of the barrel where the insert goes. When you put the insert in, it covers the scratches but still, that aint cool.
If you want a rating on just the barrel itself, I'm giving it a 10. If your talking about the customer service and quality of equations business I'm gonna go with a 4. Equation is lucky im only rating the barrel on this review....Order this barrel if your a front player and you've got 2 months to sit on your butt and wait for it to get to you.
ok i went to the warehouse where the people make this product and they are all nice people. I live in Phoenix, Arizona and their warehouse is like 3 miles away so i had no wait time and i could check out the product. These people were like so help ful. They only had one insert in stock so they let me have it, the insert had a blemish in it but he said that i could use the insert and when i pick up the others i can get a new one. HOW SWEET IS THAT !!! This barrel is really accurate and makes my gun quiet. Also the red finish on my barrel looks good on my red impulse.
Nothing yes i just tested it. Kind of sucks that they were all outta inserts but its all good. I spoke to the guy that runs the place and they are actually going to make a larger place to manufacture the barrels and inserts so they should be getting things in stock faster.
This is the best barrel on the market. Also probably the cheapest. If i were you i would buy this barrel right now. The only reason im giving it a 9 is because they were out of a lot of the inserts but that is ok since i live right down the street from them :)
all american(old)-great accuracy stock progressive-also great
old impulse #2985 All American package with turbo board and a new smoke revy with vortex impeller
i used PMI Premiums
At first i liked the 8 inch size which is actually seven when you screw it in because i could easily fit into bunkers no problem. The inserts help with paint fit and velocity problems. Black ano looks good. inserts have small o-rings to stop slipage.
I have quite a list: First like most people it took along time to ship to my house but most people's Biserks shipped in at least one month but mine took more than two months. When i finally got it i was hoping it wouldn't have scratches like the other reviews said but sure enough it was real nasty on the inside, honing was bumpy and scratched! On top of that i was missing my .689 insert because they didn't have them in stock. When i went to test it with the right insert and brand new PMI paint they were curving like mad. Also when i played games with it let me down every time i had a perfect shot
The Biserk Pro system was a major let down for me, Equation had a great idea but they but they couldn't back it up with quality. I hated it so much that i traded it to a friend for his stock Progressive and two bags of paint, in my opinion he got screwed over. I don't recommend the Biserk barrel to anyone, use your money for a quality barrel

Doesn't matter since you have the inserts
Inserts = perfect paint match. Any cheap field-only paint will work.
Revised inserts fit perfectly.
Sturdy construction. No bent inserts like the freak system.
Short on length for tight front play.
Fairly accurate at distance.
Great price considering other competitor's prices for the same type or product.
Since the barrel is so short it is hard to sight down the barrel. (You get used to it). Shipping takes a while. I finally picked it up at the trade show during the Pan Am at SC Village. NOTE: There is a trade show in June in Pomona. Pick it up then.
It is a great product for a really great price. I got mine for $79. I shot old paint through it all day and not one single break in the barrel. It was very accurate considering its size. I like to play mid or front so this is perfect for staying tight to the bunker and snapping off a few quick rounds. They are a relatively new company so I can understand why their product is always on backorder.
GO TO THE TRADE SHOW IN POMONA TO BUY IT.
Buy this product if you were thinking about buying a barrel system. You get a quality product (no alum. inserts) for half the price of the Freak system.
