A very good idea by Smart Parts tarnished by their famous lack of quality. The barrel is a good idea, and should've worked well. But the inserts are usually inconsistent in their bore, and prone to bending/warping. They also don't usually sit right in the back tube. It does come with a lot of different bore sizes... which is good.

Its fairly accurate, but I'd prefer a solid bore kit over this. There are better barrel kits out for the money.

Smart Parts Freak Barrel Kit Best barrel kit for the buck. Comes in every size imaginable. If you want a longer barrel just get a longer tip. Only barrel I shoot.

I first bought a freak kit when i owned a epiphany, it worked great and i bought additional fronts. I moved on to Dye/Matrix guns and just had to buy a cocker threaded back and i was all set. the only thing that i do not like about this product is that the only gun it really looks great on is a shocker, everything else it is just, meh

I have had three freak kits and used a freak on every marker i have owned. The performance is as well as expected, and i would purchase again. I have used a dye UL, macdev matchstik, evil pipe, wgp kaner, and many other barrels, and can honestly say the freaks that i have had are just as good if not better. there are many who claim the inserts bend easily, but i havent had an issue on any of mine. if you step on them, i can see them being damaged, but i have yet to see one damaged by dropping or normal use. i do however recomend only a small assortment of inserts, as i use 3-4 mainly and can get by with my .693 and be happy...

I'll state it right now...I am not a huge fan of barrel kits, especially ones that use inserts. Yes, this barrel works and it work fairly well too but I don't think it is worth the cost. I obtained the kit through a trade which is pretty much the only reason I own it.

The barrel is by no means bulky but isn't the best looking in my opinion either. The whole idea of inserts and paying all this extra money so you can get a good fit on any paintball you shoot just doesn't seem worth it. I am a bigger fan of just over boreing the paint but we will leave that for another time.

So the Freak Barrel kit is a very good barrel and if you have the money and are dead set on a kit then I would say the Freak is a very good option. It shoots straight and can deal with breaks fairly well in my own experience. The inserts, unless stainless steel, are a bit fragile although they still need quite a bit of a beating to cause any real damage. I just haven't noticed, in my experiences, any advantage in owning the Freak kit and I truly believe there are barrels out there that perform better.
