Just a bit expensive, but works great. i am not a huge fan of the freak system, but it works well with the dw barrel.

I use it on my vice and love it. It shoots as good as any barrel i have ever used, and that is saying a lot.

DeadlyWind Carbon Fiber Barrel Kit
Initially I wanted a freak barrel. I found this though and was immediately attracted to the light-weight and extremely durable nature of carbon fiber. I am familiar with metals, materials, and machining and I knew from the description that this barrel was probably going to be close to razor accurate (as far as Paintball goes ) so I went ahead an bought the barrel!
Appearance:
Cool looking packaging, actual barrel comes in a plastic tube case, the bore master kit from Freak comes with its own black hard case, there IS a space to put the 14" barrel in the Freak Case! The actual barrel is quite simple looking from a geometric perspective; it's just a Carbon Fiber Tube that has been molded to a black aluminum back piece that has the threading and two DeadlyWind "D" gems glued on either side. The actual texture of the barrel almost feels like plastic (trust me, it's extremely durable), the barrel is noticeably lighter than any other Aluminum barrel. The actual design, if I can say that, is a carbon fiber wrap that cascades down the barrel in a downward circular pattern. At the same time it almost looks like little checkered squares going down the side. It is a very cool looking barrel artistically, but quite simple in terms of milling; that's because it is Carbon fiber, you don't get much playing room with a good carbon fiber barrel!

TL;DR Sleek, Sexy, Light, Durable, Simple, Carrying Case is nice.

Performance:
Do you overbore? or Underbore? The real question is; Does it matter? Nope! because you have every bore size you can imagine. The freak inserts give this barrel multiple purposes and makes it extremely versatile and useful. I could match paint easily and as the day went on, I could change inserts to make sure the paint was going splat exactly where I wanted it. The actual bore size doesn't affect accuracy that much, if not at all, so the actual barrel is very accurate and was made very well. This particular barrel used to be called "Whisper" which, obviously, implicated that this changed the sound signature of your marker making it quieter. In all honesty I did not see that big a difference, this barrel DID change the sound signature and make it a little quieter with my stock G4, but actual sound change comes from operating pressure and the bolt system. The barrel made my gun noticeably efficient, and I could shoot more on a tank fill than before, which is always nice for longer games.

TL;DR Accurate, Efficient, Changed sound signature a litte, allows user to match paint perfectly all through the day

Durability:
I made a separate section for this because, and I don't know how it happened, some people think that a carbon fiber barrel is weak in some respects. I have no idea how that idea came about, But I am going to clear everything up about carbon fiber and carbon fiber barrels. Carbon Fiber is several times lighter than Aluminum and several times stronger than steel in one direction. Which means that the fiber will have all those attributes if strained or pulled on in that one particular direction, otherwise it takes on the strength of some weaker aluminum. Which, imo, is still impressive. The way the barrel is designed is that they weave fibers in different directions around the mold of the barrel (which is the inside and usually a different metal) that way everything is reinforcing itself give the barrel the attributes of material lighter than aluminum and stronger than steel all the way through. You can drive your car over the barrel and still shoot it. It's all held together with incredibly strong epoxy resin. This stuff is used on formula one race cars and airplanes. If you think you can abuse and put those materials under more stress on an airball field than on an airplane or formula one race car...you belong in a record book.

Pros:
-Light
-Very Strong
-Versatile
-Accurate
-Efficient
-Carrying Case is a +1 because you can store you stuff safely
-I like the simple look

Cons:
-Pricey! it was $143 for the whole kit! Holy Crap!
-Inserts are a little tight fitting, some of the anno on the insert got scratched
-Kit comes with Aluminum inserts, SS ones are sold separately

The Deadly Winds Fibur barrel is a must have for any serious pump player..

It is very light, does not fall apart or unravel like previous carbon fiber barrels and it allows you to match your paint to bore size using Freak inserts.

Do not think twice about picking one of these up.

Pros: Light, quiet, swab-able, one-piece, Freak inserts
Cons: Needs an O-ring to keep it from backing out
I have purchased and own a lot of barrels and barrel kits, including the STIFFI MF, CP 8 Piece Barrel Kit, Invert Whisper Barrel, Critical 100G Kit, Deadlywind Null and of course the Deadlywind Fibur.

Since I got the Deadlywind Fibur, I have not used another barrel. As soon as I put it on, I could feel the balance of my AXE change, it is so light, it also looks great. Then I took my first shot, it is noticeably quieter. Cleaning it easy as any metal barrel, as the smooth bore finish lets me use any swab I like. The one-piece design is so simple, so strong and so clean, I can not understand why FREAK barrels are two pieces?

I have shot about 20 cases though it, usually using the .679 Freak insert, though I have used a .685, .682 and .677 a few times. So far not a single problem and no signs of any wear to the barrel, though the .678 insert is showing some...My point is for 12 bucks, I can shoot a brand new bore, as this one gets scored...though I may try stainless Freak inserts going forward.

Some advise; First, put an O-ring on the collar so the barrel does not get loose though the day. Second, put a dab of lube on the outside of the inserts before inserting them in the barrel. Third, I purchased the entire FREAK insert kit, it is a waste as I only use the underbore inserts, so if I were doing it again, I would only purchase the 4 inserts in the sizes I use.

Of all the other barrels I have owned and tried, this one is my favorite, the only one that comes close is the Critical...

I Have used several other barrels including, dye UL's, Stiffi, Freak, powerlyte, Evil, and a few misc. others.

I bought a USED 14in cocker threaded barrel. I use it on my Invert MINI, and a slew of Mecanical and E-cockers.

Appearance:
Pros: It is a great looking barrel, Clean and sleek. The exterior CF weaving is smooth unlike the the Stiffi barrel. It doesn't have the Obnoxious (IMO) logos, and graphics all over the barrel like Sly.
Cons: Mine was used so take this with a grain of salt. There were a few minor chips on the exterior of the barrel that can oly be seen if you looked close.

Performance:
Pros: I use the SS freak Inserts with the barrel. A problem I had with EVERY Freak barrel I ever used/owned, was that if you looked down the tip of the barrel you will see a circle where the insert meets inside. It should be minimal and be equal all the way around. The freak barrel systems wern't (weather it be bad design, or bad machining/tolerences) . The DW barrel has a very minimal ring and is equal all the way around . This is important because the transition from isnsert to barrel needs to be smooth and seamless as possible

The DW barrel is just a accurate as any other barrel out there with a good Paint to bore match. Unlike any of the other Carbon Fiber barrel, you can use a swab on tha barrel, without fear of unraveling it.

Cons:On the rare occasion I chop paint. It doesn't clean out as well as some have stated. It Cleans out batter than an aluminum barrel, but not good enough to get 20yrd ball on ball shot that I am used to.

Value: THis is a GREAT value is you already have freak inserts. Even if you don't you really only need 3 inserts and I piced up the SS ones new for $15 ea. at my local shop. IMO this is a better barrel than the other Carbon Fiber barrels available (Stiffi, Sly). I would also make a recomondadtion to use the SS inserts as they do not fluxuate with temperature and are stronger. The Aluminum ones are Garbage IMO.

Recently purchased the 14" autococker threaded version from deadlywind directly. Extremely fast shipping and an excellent product, shoots very quiet and accurately with an appropriate freak insert. The inside of the barrel's tip appears dirty, but this is just due to the carbon fiber showing through the clear resin coating and does nothing negative for performance.

Overall my favorite barrel of all time.

Cons: orings wear out with a lot of use
Overall Ive been extremley happy with my DW Fibur. Its the best barrell Ive owned. Only gripe is the oring inside the barrel that holds the inserts in. I have had them wear out prematurley in my opinion. When they wear out your insert is allowed to slide in the barrel. I ran into this problem with my phenom. The worn out oring let my insert come loose and the bolt became lodged in the insert. (Game ender) The fibur also has a problem with the phenom. (Deadlywinds has a fix now) The insert slides in too far allowing the paintball to strike the first portion of the barrell resulting in a lot of breaks. Deadlywinds has addressed this problem with a small insert to take up the spacing thus eliminating the problem.
