Exclamation Kits with inserts

Are kits with inserts worth the price if my field constantly changes paint?

Ok but I don't understand this...

You select the correct bore size for the balls within the first 4 inches of the barrel. What happens with the last lengths of the barrel if te ball is too small? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of matching bore sizes?

not unless you are violently shaking your gun while you are firing. I don't know the exact science behind it but yes...it helps.

I think the spacer sets the ball on its trajectory while the extra space in the second half with the higher bore allows the air to slow down and stay behind the ball. If it was a tight bore all the way down it may slow the ball down to the point of not coming out the barrel. It's all about finding that happy point in between.

Is It worth it to get one instead of my vice barrel?

Are you okay with periodically adjusting bore to get that little extra bit of efficiency/consistency? If so, then yes. Vices are AC threaded so it will still be useful if you decide to get another gun.

Are deadlywond fibur barrels any good? I'm looking for quiet and low price. Something I can throw inserts in compared to backs. I find inserts easier.
Or should I stick with buying a freak barrel with inserts?
