I loved my DW fibur barrel so much that i bought 3 and also got 4 friends to buy them. You cant find a more versitle light weight barrel. Infact ever since owning the DW i cant put an aluminum barrel on any gun i shoot they are simply too heavy.

Only issue with the DW was that afew a few months it stopped clearing barrel breaks dunno why.

I'm stretching on the cons, if you're looking for a good all-around barrel... this is it.

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

I love this barrel, the inserts combined with the weight make it amazing! So light, so smooth, looks great, cleans easy, chicks love it, always the right bore, just cant say enough. Only downside(and Ive never experienced it) is I know a few guys who have snapped them relatively easily off a bad dive or whatnot. Overall great barrel, dont hesitate to buy.

Pros: see write up
Cons: see write up
pros: very accurate, very light, very sick look.

cons: 1 semi con is that it doesnt come with a barrel bag/cover/protector. it comes in a plastic wrap which you will tear open and is useless for keeping it protected in your bag. i would suggest you buy a barrel bag, i use an old pool stick case to keep both my barrels safe, yes its big but i dont worry about them getting scratched or messed up.

buy directly from deadlywind, 1. this supports the company's growth, etc. 2. collin is a super cool guy to talk to about the product, he will answer any question you have about any of his products.

i bought 2 of these barrels and 3 of the inserts, i put one on my wife's mini (14" version) and one on my epiphany (16" version) and they both shoot excellent. my only regret is going with the 16" for my epiphany, its really a lot longer than i thought it would be, i should have went with a 14", but oh well.

I bought this barrel because it was light, looked good and took freak inserts. That was all I needed, and I liked it. After using it for a little while, I realized that it made my guns sounds much louder than other barrels, and I was very careful not to scratch the tip so that the fibur didn't unravel. I was overall very pleased with it, I just wish it had a more durable tip (like a stiffi model) and had better porting to make it quieter (like the UL).
