I dont wanna spend $200 for a kit i just need one barrel. I wish they would just sell a separate 2 piece where you could pick a bore size instead of having to buy this.

Honest question; What is the purpose of having both an Alu and CF fronts in a kit?

Isn't that like selling a brand new car with a carbon fibre hood but also including the standard alloy one, and then charging extra for the hood you won't use?

Going out on a limb here and saying that including an aluminum tip was of marginal\small cost to Empire, and it's just another thing to add to the list of features and justify the price.

Also, where is this magic $200-$300 number coming from? Speculation?

With the name "Super Freak" I wonder if it will be interchangeable with SP/GOG freak barrel system.

Edit:
Never mind guess it is stated in ANS website but not sure if I can trust it

Bawahahahhaha!

Yeah... I don't fully understand adding all of this extra stuff that people more then likely don't want/need included with a kit if it meant spending 20-50 less on it.

Can't wait to see the Empire'd version of the freak kit though, I'm sure it's nice. Hopefully it's all interchangeable with the old one.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
