The freak barrel kit did wonders to aid in consistency/accuracy and noise level of my ETEK 3.

I like the choice of inserts out on the market to match the paint to the bore and the control bore is longer that some out there.

It is a bit on the heavier side compared to some of the competitors.

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.

I have been using freak kits since they first came out. They shoot great. I love how easy it is to size paint and shoot anything through them. You only have to buy a new back piece if you get a different gun. They hold up quite well. Playing front, the anodizing does tend to wear after a while. I do recommend this barrel to anyone playing tournament or woods ball.

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 own the Smart Parts Freak Jr. 14 inch and it has never shot me astray and is very reliable. If you dont mind spending a couple of extra bucks the freak insert system is very convenient in that it takes up less space than separate barrel backs.

I've this barrel since it came out for the impulse. Overall this barrel is amazing and the bore sizes came in the perfect sizes for most paint. Not really any problems with the freak kit except for on the darker colored ones fading occurred a little bit on the tips.
