The freak is a cheaper option as far as kits go since the inserts are relatively cheap. The Shaft 4 with the longer control bore will be the more air efficient barrel but the backs cost more and there are not nearly as many bore sizes available. Both are great barrels.

I wouldn't really roll with either.

Lurker Eigenbarrels are essentially better Shaft 4 barrels and are cheap
Disruptive Deathtouches are simply amazing
A notable entry are the Furious lotus, where some people prefer them.
And if you really need Carbon, a Deadlywind.

Outside of that, I wouldn't really waste my cash.

longer control bore doesn't make Shaft4 way better than others
I've made comparison beetween Dye UL and Shaft4
I was shooting 20 balls with each of them (conditions: proto paint, Bob Long G6R 2012, -10deegree celcius)

Dye Ultralite was much consistent barrel.. but average result was the same.

I freak bored the shaft 4 for my ego 11. Like using inserts but love the stock look. For my 3.1 I just bought a .685 shaft back. 6 of one half a dozen of another in my opinion. The shaft 4 does seem a little quieter than my freak though.

How did the freak bored out shaft barrel work for you? Did you have any issues?

I have it done as well from Nerve2030 on here. It was a good investment.

none at all. I like it a lot. As said above Nerve3030 on here does great work. Also a lot cheaper than buying a freak barrel. $35 or $40 including shipping.

Is there any requirements to freak bore a barrel? As in, would I be able to freak bore my lurker eigenbarrel?

Not trying to start anything, but I found it funny that you said the Eigen barrel is a better Shaft4 and then recommended the Disruptive DT. You do realize that the Deathtouches are essentially a Shaft4 and even the fronts and backs are compatible right? I do miss my Furious barrel already, it was an amazing barrel and probably has the smallest bore size for a front other than the new Stella barrels. Honestly though barrels are just personal preference.

My suggestion is that if you already have a Shaft4 I would just get the boost kit for it. If not you may look in to the new 1 piece linear barrel that accepts freak inserts for a cheaper all in one barrel. From my experience I really like the Shaft4, Critical 100G, Lucky15 and Furious. I'm excited to use my new to me BL barrels I just got for my Dragon Timmy and Darq Marq.
