Freak Vs. Shift

I have two questions
1. Which front for the freak is better? The all american or the normal freak front? My teammate just got the freak front and it is awesome lots of porting so it is quiet! but is the all american better?

2. How can the freak kit compare to the Shift kit from macdev. I know the shift lacks as many inserts but, which barrel is better, more accurate? sound signature?

Neither barrel will be more accurate, the Freak will have longer control bores, and the Freak will have better porting. From what I've seen, there's just more porting on the AA barrel than the standard freak barrel.

Since you know the bore lengths of both what are they?

Freak inserts are 6" and shift inserts are 5.25". Not going to make much of a difference. I prefer Shift because it has better build quality in my opinion.

I have both. I used to use my shift all the time and loved it. Lately i've been using my freak set a lot. Last weekend I used my shift for the first time in a while and it didn't seem to be shooting as good as I remember, but I was overboring so that might be why....
They are both great barrels but I like the freak for its versatility if you have multiple guns with different barrel threads
