Smart Parts Freak Barrel Kit I never had one problem with any Freak Barrel I used. They provided great accuracy, and were very light. Also very affordable and a very dependable Barrel Kit when needed.

I bought the full kit & I'm using both the "All American" & "Freak" Tips, didnt feel much difference between the two tips except that that "All American" was a little more quiet. I have tried the Deathstix barrels & the Shadow barrels, the only upside the CF barrels had over the Freak Barrel Kit was the weight.
Overall the Freak barrel kit is worth the money.

Smart Parts Freak Barrel Kit I love the option of matching paint to bore. It really seems to help accuracy. I bent one of my inserts, so get the stainless steel inserts if possible.

Cons: overpriced for the performance, inserts damaged
well, the freak is one of the most sought after barrel kits in the industry now. they are a classic kit that does what i needs to do, time after time.

i started my kit with a purchase of a SP epiphany, and then later bought a freak front and 4 extra inserts. performance wise, it's very accurate. you can underbore, overbore, or simply match the bore to the paint to your pleasing. that's the biggest perk to this kit.

for the money, you can to a lot better.
$150 for the entire kit can buy you a lot more now a days in the paintball industry... so i think that the value for this kit deserves 3 stars

overall, i would rate it 4 stars

good job SP though!

I've owned many Freak barrels and insert kits over the last 10 years. I think it would be impossible for anyone to play that long and never at least try out a Freak barrel kit. Smart Parts died but they couldn't kill the Freak. Its design has been copied many times and will be copied many more times.

My only problem is the look. I'm not a fan of either the AA or Freak tips and the backs only came in dense black and SS unless you bought a brand new Impulse. The one I currently keep in my gearbag is one of the originals with each letter of the word "Freak" drilled into the side - it's hideous but has earned its commendations proudly through the course of my career. /Salute
