Hands down the best barrel ever made. I've been using a Freak barrel for nearly 10 years now. A bunch of insert sizes ranging from .675 clear up to .695. Will work with any size paint you have. You can change out the barrel tips in no time. Lightweight, accurate, high quality. I couldn't ask for more in a barrel.

I have used the Freak kit since its creation - I prefer the Scepter for reliability and overall quality, but the FREAK looks nicer and is a much better price when you own a few dozen markers.

Freak back = 100% accurate paint/bore match

AA front = Efficient, quiet

Only bones to pick; inserts are THIN and easily damaged, control bore is SHORT compared to high end 2-piece kits, and lazer engraved "sizes" are inaccurate to the point of uselessness - they look like hell too.

A great all around barrel system that you can use to paint match almost all paint. They have all colors to match most annos on guns. The only down side is the smallish size of the control bore and the inserts can be bent pretty easily.

Cons: a little heavy for a barrel, expensive
This is a very nice barrel system. I have it on my upped ion and have used it on a few other guns and I would recommend it to anyone. It gives a very consistent shot, especially when combined with a nice regulator. Definetely beats alot of systems out there.
However it is expensive, so unless you can pick one up used or at a good price, or have plenty of cash, Id look for a non-insert barrel that is well rated.
