I would have to say the Freak also. I also like boomstick, if you don't have money for whole freak buy the barrel and then the common inserts like 687, 689,

Technically there is no best barrel, in fact there are several equals, most of it will depend on your opinion, (ie. even thoughthey are both fine i like SP over Dye barrels), most important, think about what bore size of paint u usually run, (small bore tend to b more towards competitve paint.)

You must take into account what your length should be, if you want it shiny and flashy, and how much porting you want.
(keep in mind while porting can make a barrel look really cool, it can make it a pain to clean. And while a billion porting holes may make it quiet, it might cause a loss in air efficiency; Im not totally sure exactly how porting will effect your efficiency though.)

And of course there is the biggest-est, most deciding part of your barrel:
Can you hit the broad side of a barn with your old barrel

So, in conclusion just shop around for the best prices and what ever your looking for, may it be inserts by the dozen or a simple one piece barrel, there is always a "perfect" barrel out there for you.

where do these proffessor types come from.

however, id have to agree.
also rember, aluminum and titatium are really light, and steel is really heavy(my old boa weights like 1.6 pounds), and brass has really little friction but you gotta be caful with it.(

I must agree with I_like_welts, but for me my favorite is the Lapco Bigshot. That is as long as I have paint that matches it. If not I shoot whatever barrel that matches my paint.

I've been using the combo of Lapco autospirit and bigshot to cover all sizes of paint and honestly i almost never use the autospirit unless i want to splurge and get some hellfire. For $100 for both barrels and their excellent accuracy this combo is tough to beat. Not as quiet as a boomstick or all-american but they are just as if not more accurate and for half the price. If you want to spend more money you might want to check out the new powerlyte barrels at www.powerlyte.com
