This kit is a good barrel. I love that you have the choice between the aluminium and carbon fiber tips. The Apex 2 tip is cool if you want to mess around and bend the ball. All that being said I don't think I would pay full price for it.

The only negative things about the Super Freak kit are the case (its cool but it doesn't seem to protect it as well as the freak hard case does) and the bore sizes that come with it. I think there needs to be a wider variety, something in the .682 .684 .687 exc. range. The bores that it comes with (.675, .680, .685, .690, .695) don't cut it sometimes.

I've been using a Smart Parts Freak kit for over a decade. Whenever this product was released I had to try it to see how it compared to the original. I'm very disappointed. As a tournament player, it leaves much to be desired after spending $200 for a barrel kit. I have no use for the Apex tip. I'm afraid to use the carbon fiber tip for fear of breaking it while sliding into a bunker. The inserts are weird sizes and they are too far apart in terms of how the sizes run (675, 680, 685, 690, 695). The most disappointing feature of this barrel kit though is the "case" as they call it. It's so soft that it doesn't really protect the inserts from getting bent.

Do yourself a favor. Don't buy this barrel kit, save yourself $50 and go buy the original Freak kit from GoG Paintball. You'll get a better barrel, more inserts, a better case, and you'll save money. Nothing beats an original.

Cons: none to date
The barrel is a continued version of the best barrel the freak kit. The super freak looks a lot more appealing then the old one with more tip/front peice options. I'm sure they will add more. This barrel matches every caliber paintball to date. And comes in verious color options its basically a one stop shop barrel system. A must have barrel.

Let me start by saying, I am breaking a ton of paint with this barrel kit.

Paintballs: G.I., Valken, Dark Sports.
Marker: Empire Axe Boss V2 bolt, dwell 4, 160 PSI op, rotor.
Temp outside: 55 F

I do not understand why I am getting all these barrel breaks with CF, and aluminum tip. I would switch between .680, and .675. Blow test the paint to barrel match, and just break paint all day long. Tried shooting different brands of paint with the same results. The paint was extremely rough to clear out with my exalt squeegue, which is normally is a stellar field perfomer.

I am really not impressed with this purchase, and would love to get my money back.

Empire Super Freak Gave it a 3 for reliability because this barrel is very hard to clean without swabbing it. And by that I mean in a game situation when you're shooting, and it isn't clearing.

Really an awesome product. The graphite barrel shoots the field paint las if it were tourney paint. It has been so accurate have not tried an of the others yet. Truly a tinkerer's dream barrel set. ENuff said, Had to turn the gas down on my AXE so much I thought something was wrong compared tot he stock barrel. I will eventually compare it to my Dye Ultralite Boomstick, but at the moment I do not want to change a thing, just let that sucker shoot the ropes, will eventually get curious and compare.
