- Titanium Boomsticks (not as good because of un-upgrade ability and price)
- J&J Ceramic ( Decent barrel especially for the money)
- Armson Stealth ( great Inginuity with spiraled rifling, makes it very accurate)
*PI- E Black Dragun
*Freak Jr. System

P.M.I Premium if Not able to get or unwilling to spend the extra dough on Marballizers
--Accurate-- beyond belief. Just played a Tourny and whooped two Bushmasters and a Em-1. Not as much as a total Freak Kit but as close as it gets
--Silent --The silentness (not sure if thats a word) of your marker is improved slightly if not significantly (depends on your marker)
--Name-- Scares people. This is a definate advantage if you play in tournaments with people that know what they are doing. Namebrands will scare some people. They know its a sweet barrel. You will too if you be smart and buy it
--Nothing i had seen in its use so far. Ive used about 3,000 plus rounds and have had 2 ball breaks (one was because a friend snuck a BE paintball into my hopper just to be a meanie-head) so its very unlikely you'll break paint if you buy the right balls.
All around great barrel. If you find another barrel thats better than you are very very stoned. I would suggest toking up AFTER you look on the internet for barrels. Buy this if you like winning and im sure you do......
I am usin a Tippmann 98C with a 14" DYE xcel /16" Freak JR. barrel, Dye Sticky grips, a 3 stage GTA Expansion chamber, 12v Revy, Tasco Red Dot Sight, a Shocktech drop foward chrome, and a double trigger.
i recommend Marblelizer, Midnights, PMI Super swirls, and point blanks dont work too bad.
This barrel is amazing. Very customizable, it has amazing accuracy, for example while i was playing at a field i nailed 3 guys from about 100 feet and i didnt even have to tilt the gun back and my FPS was at 250. its very consistent when it comes to accuracy even when ur nitro/CO2 is low. its rather quiet, and the barrel is very light..
nothing other than too some people it might be a little pricey, but i thought it was worth every dollar.
Its an amazing product, very customizable and it looks great too!
Right now? It changes a lot. Vert. Kit with PB X-Core, custom paint, and the Freak Jr.
I've only used Diablo's so Far, would still like Marbz, but Im not picky.
I wrote a big review for countypaintball, so see it in the conclusion.
No.....not there!!!! Sicko, I mean look at the Conclusion!
I traded in my Flatline towards on of these versatile little (long)thing. So far, it's great.
Consider this a Four piece barrel. The back of this barrel is actually a barrel adapter. It has Model 98 Threads that accept spyder threads. This can be good (you can use spyder barrels or this barrel in a Spyder), but it makes the barrel even longer.
The base isn't EXACTLY like the regular one, although it takes the same inserts. This base doesn't have the large milled out "Smart Parts" (or is it FREAK) letters, instead it has two pretty green "The Freak" bubble and two oval shaped ports that you can see the insert size "693" for example. After seeing it, I actually prefer it (I think).
As far as the front goes, I would have wrather taken off a few inches and made the total length 12" (13" with adapter). Also, it doesn't have that nice Teardrop spiral porting or anything of a muzzle break. It's pretty and smooth enough, but it's too long and doesn't do what the Teardrop or AA would do.
Also, I would have preferred a different insert (and I could have gotten one, but I wasn't sure) A slightly smaller one would be great. But Eventually you will want to get more inserts anyway.
Overall, with a few adjustments, (that can easily be made due to the nature of this versatile barrel), this is probably the best barrel out there. I've traden in barrel after barrel (ok, just two) but with this, I can just change the front, or the inserts. This is definately the most versatille barrel ever.
