If you like your current barrel besides the fact that it doesnt take freak inserts, then get it bored for inserts. IF you are going to go buy a freak or deadlywinds, I would choose deadlywinds. It is lighter, quieter, and shoots better through barrel breaks.

I would say original Freak. Why buy something that works like a Freak, when you can pick up a used one for the same price as all of the ones you mentioned ?

The DW is lighter, but throws off the balance of your total set-up. Not to mention, if the inside gets scratched, it's done. But it is the quietest of the bunch.

The boring of a stock barrel is ok, but personally, I like the option of looking at the side of my Freak to tell which Insert I have in if my balls start shooting all over the place. With a stock barrel, you have to pull the barrel and yank the insert, not always a good option, but the cheapest of the 3 mentioned.

I have used the 12-14" Freak All American for the last 15 years of my paintball life and other then changing backs (for different guns) or replacing inserts (worn out) I have never considered anything else as they have served me well.

I just bought a small bore CP 1 piece and when I arrive I screw it in and don't give it another thought all day.

I almost always use one of my lurker eigenbarrels. My favorite design.

Of the ones listed though I'd go with a DW fiber or get a 2-piece boomstick bored.

I have been using a freak kit for years and love it, but I love the stock look on my Ego 11. I am sending my shaft 4 off to be bored out. Best of both worlds. I considered the DW but I don't want to spend $90 just because its lighter when I have a freak already or can spend $35 to get my shaft 4 bored.

I have an ego 11 as well and use freak inserts on my Luxe & deadly wind barrels. I would like to bore out my ego 11 barrel but am concerned about weakening it, or taking a risk that it isn't done right; off center etc. Anyone ever have problems with having a barrel bored out? If no problems, where can I send it to be bored?
