Disruptive Customs barrel FTW.
Better than the Furious and Freak.
Freak barrels are garbage quality.. the Luxe freak just looks nice.

Really? LOL......do you know anything of what you are talking about?

The only thing the paintball is going through/touching is the insert itself, after that the paintball will project through the rest of the barrel without touching (this is with all two piece and insert barrels on the market today), so the barrel in itself doesnt make a difference, its the insert that does.

Unless you are buying a full one piece kit of lets say 7 different barrel sizes then everything is the same inrelation to two piece and insert barrels(except of the materials it is comprised of, ex metal, carbon fiber). Plus the freak inserts are the longest ones on the market.

I use the freak because the barrel matches the gun. I also like the fact that I can get .679 inserts for smaller bore paint. Inserts are cheap so if you screw one up picking up another is easy. Try buying 8 different UL backs.

No Need to get your panties in a bunch.

And Yeah, I actually DO know what I am talking about.
It's not my fault you are an ignorant and indolent ****.

The tolerances on the freaks SUCK and they are not worth the money.

And you're wrong. The porting, honing, and bore size among other things in the tip affect the paintball during flight.

I've spent over $600 finding "The Best" barrel I could find.
Furious is second, DP is first. Prior to those, I was shooting a CP kit sicne my freak kit was so ****ty. And Yeah, I mic'd them out for size as well as bought two regular kits and 3 SS kits.

TL;DR:
XxHeadShotzxX is a fanboy.
I've tried many barrels, and the freak system is not up to par with everything else available.

I have used all the top level barrels. Plus I am not a fan boy. I was sponsored by Eclipse and have utilized the deadly winds and several other barrels like Sly and Dye over the course of my time. I have also always owned bob long guns and I just recently got a Luxe in a trade that I havent even shot yet!!!! But your idea inrelation to barrels is WRONG.

I just don't think you have looked in the technical research about how it DOES not direct the flight of the ball due to the fact that it isnt touching.

Yes certain materials create more friction but that is when you are utilizing one piece sizes (ex: flatline tipmann barrels). And obviously the insert BORE is what makes the difference not the tip, the larger tip decreases the overall weight and muffle the guns sound output depending apon the bore size and what material is used, those are the two reason dye utilizes the different tips.

Also portings main role is to reduce overall noise levels by venting excess air pressure behind a paintball before the paintball leaves the barrel.Also accuracy is created by Paint to barrel match (insert or back to a two piece, NOT a tip), paint consistency, shot per shot velocity consistency, and the stability of the shooting platform.

And if you spent 600 dollars to find the best barrel then you are completely mistaken because you are shooting a ball filled with paint, not a bullet. Paintballs can only be so accurate and normally depends apon the paint you are shooting and NOT the barrel.

my personal favorite is the deadlywind barrel it worked great and it used inserts, the only reason i dont use it anymore is because it was cocker threaded and it wouldent fit on my luxe. i prefer inserts over barrel backs anyway because they are relativley inexpensive and you get more options. they are quite useful also when it comes to reballs, using a standard barrel causes them to curve wildly at any sort of distance but if you use a reball insert there is no problems. i think the freak barrel is an exelent idea and i have never had any problems with it. just my opinion.

That's why shooting my cp kit, furious kit, and dp kit with the same paint and bore size shows which is "better".

Maybe you should have a talk with Ryan @ DP.. He actually designed the barrel.

The way the porting is designed can also affect how fast the air vents, where it vents, and if it changes the flight trajectory.

Fanboy can refer to something other than a marker LOL.

BTW, the DP shoots better than the UL kit I got with an ego off of here too.. so Uhm.. Yeah?

Anyway, @ the OP: Freak barrel looks nice on the luxe, but It is NOT the best barrel out there for such a high quality marker.

i just use the luxe barrel bc it matches the gun plus its a freak. its nice to ahve the option of what bore size you want too. i love the dye barrels, but not enough to go out and spend 100$ to get one with the right threads. but dye is agood and freaks are not bad by any means

Freak barrels are great barrels. Just as accurate as any other barrel out there. Yea the control bore is not 8 inches but they still work great. If your looking for something different I would go with a deadly winds barrel that uses the inserts or get a disruptive barrel kit.

but about the barrels, i honestly cannot tell a difference between two barrels with the same paint and same bore size. accuracy is much more effected by the paint and by your chrono consistency. ive taken the stock ego SL kit and put on a DYE ul, followed by a CP, followed by a BL stock barrel and cannot tell a difference. the only thing i notice is difference sound signatures.

so to the guy above me who said he has spent over 600 dollars looking for the best barrel, i LOLOL at you.

imo a barrel is a barrel is a barrel

im not worried bout the price, paintball is the onlything that keeps me out of trouble, so if it cost an arm and a leg so b it, cause its cheaper than prison, trust me i know..................... that stiffi looks as wrong as 2 left feet................. barrel convo is so touchy, i do know that barela make a difference in ho a marker shoots, my shocker shoots better with a freak than same bore ul. I have heard uls are tested on/for dye gun, smartpartsfor smart parts makes sence......... as far as the luxe freak being the sexiest thing since the thong, imo my impulse freal looks way better..........since im married now, i can only screw my wife and ppl on the paintball field, so i spend a lot of time and money doing so, i dont even get my luxe til tomorrow, and have several barrels for my nxt, and 09 impulse, ill try them all this weekend and let yall know what i think
