boomstick or freak

What barrels do you guys use on your angels? I bought a freak back instead of a dye boomstick for my angels and i have to say I feel like the stock barrel is better than the freak. ( dark LED, Cobra LCD) Im considering selling it and getting some boomsticks any advice? I am also sure that i was using the correct insert, and I used two different fronts.

Insert barrel systems are a poor solution to the barrel question. Solid bores will generally be better overall. Sometimes there's no other alternative, but whenever possible, solid backs over inserts.

As much as I'm a HUGE fan of the Inception Stella, legacy barrel threads aren't happening anytime soon. That leaves us with choices like the Boomstick (DYE has always made good tubes), CP, Warped Lucky 15, Redz Pepper Sticks, etc. Plenty of good options out there.

I only use boomsticks and stiffi/deadlywind barrels, the freak only comes out with super small bore paint. Either way, pump is spot on...

On top of the functional issues, I'm of the opinion that a Freak barrel just doesn't look good on an Angel. Dye barrels look almost like they were made for them, aesthetically speaking. The price is a killer though.

I like my freak on my A1 Fly Gothic but my freak is the newer production gloss back with the empire gloss black front. Goes well with the dust red and gloss black on the Gothic of mine.

I do agree though that the older style freaks didn't go well with angels. I liked them on cockers more.

I like the boomsticks better too. I'm actually looking for one of the earlier ones for a custom cocker build and a custom mag build.

I really wish Inception Designs would make more thread options too. I have one for my cocker (.680 back and .683 front) and is really really quit. If it wasn't for the sound of the ball hitting the wood at the chrono station I would have thought it was shooting.

Put a Deadlywinds tip and Apex2 on the Freak.

Love it.

Performance matters more than looks.

I love me some DYE and CP barrels.

I was considering finding a 14" UL and having it bored for inserts...

freak barrels are better in my opinion just cause you can change the bore size whenever you want.
