yes there are better barrels out there, but you wont find them for that price, if thats your price range then get the driver you wont find much better in that price range

Personally I would get a J&J Edge kit for $30 instead.

I have an evil driver and it's pretty nice, the only other barrel you can get for a better price is a cp barrel which are pretty good.

Evil Driver barrels are about the best barrels in their price range that you can buy. I am also a big fan of the Evil Pipe Kits. But, don't forget that any barrel can be accurate if you have good paint and the right velocity setting.

the driver i have kinda sucks it breaks paint at the tip alot and the pipe sucks just the same my friend had one it also broke paint in the tip (even if it was a prefict match on both) also the pipe backs are so short they dont do what they are supost to to do my friends didnt make it past the pneumatis of his cocker and that was a B***h to get off

go with an edge kit or just buck up and get a freak kit best barrel i have ever seen and it is almost universial (with a new back costing only 35 new) it fit any ball prefictly with 8 insert sizes andthey are easy to change if you change paint type half way through the day

well, i have tested both a driver and a sp progressive on a spyder. They did basicly the same, the driver was a 14inch and the progressive a 16 inch, and they did pretty much the same, i think the progressive had a tad bit more range, but they did basicly the same. I think the driver is an awesome looking barrel, better looking than most, but there are others for less $$ that perform the same.

Good paint to barrel match means nothing if your paint is crappy, or velocity is too high. I have never heard of this happening to someone. Also, what kit has a longer back than the pipe? Their backs are great, and it has been proven that even compression sleeves help, so obviously the longer pipe backs are long enough. So what if they don't make it past his pneumatics? His barrel also starts like 3 inches before that of most guns, as the chamber ends earlier in cockers. The kaner was designed for cockers, so it's a bit longer, but also a bit more expensive.

The driver and CP shoot about the same, but I would have to say the CP edges it out a tad (in my opinion- there are others that would say the driver is a little better.)

Also: In my experience, the freak let me, and numerous of my friends down. If your looking high-end all the barrels perform about the same.. the only high end barrel i've ever had problems with IS the freak. But I will go out on a limb here and say that I was extremely impressed with the Lapco Snapshot. Very nice, but come with a hefty price tag and are pretty difficult to find in full kits.

sdomen- the barrel with the longest back would be the Redz Pepperstik- but I personally havn't shot one to know if it makes a diff. (they claim it does)

Lapco Snapshot's are very nice, but pretty difficult to find in full kits.
