Shaft 4 or DW w/Freak

So I just picked up a Geo 2.1 (thanks Jim), and I'm considering barrel options. I have a Freak kit for my previous marker, and I got a new AC back to use it with my Geo. now I'm thinking of selling all of the Freak stuff and buying a couple Shaft 4 backs. Up side is the increased control bore length. Down side is smaller and smaller paint with only a .689 .685 and, if I'm lucky, a .681. IF I decide not to go with the Shaft 4, I would still sell my Freak backs and tips so I could pick up a Deadly Winds barrel. What would you do?

I'm wrestling with the same question, but I am leaning towards the DW+Freak due to the flexibility of the bore choices of the Freak Kit.

Wouldn't I technically have a barrel with 3 different bores? The Freak, the remaining Shaft 4 control bore, and then the tip bore.

I'm having a hard time deciding, so I bought the .681, .685, and .689 Shaft 4 backs and I'm going to hold on to the .679 & .687 Freak inserts to use with a DW sometime in the future when the price is right.

I'll still be able to sell my AC and SP backs, 2 tips, and 6 inserts. Best of both worlds!
