Stainless Freak Inserts are back from GOG

Just saw this on my local shop's Facebook page. Looks like GoG is bringing back the stainless steel Freak inserts in all of the current sizes (.675 clear up to .695). Awesome job GoG!

technically I think they would've need to actually go somewhere to be back
since all SP did was to fire all their employees, declare bankruptcy and then
just turn around and open a "different" company - with the same products,
mind you - I don't think this classifies as a "comeback"

I think fishballer is referring to them not being produced for a while, and now they are being produced again. But you already knew that pimpin'.

SS inserts haven't been made for some time now, only been the aluminum ones.

Heard a month or two ago GoG was supposedly getting ready to make the SS's again. Good to see they followed through.

Any word on price?

The Luxe stock barrel takes freak inserts, so yes many people still use freak inserts. Along with deadlywind barrels, Bored phantom barrels(or any larger barrel bored for inserts).

It's good to see SS inserts back. A tad pricey, but I can see the nitch. I'll be picking up a kit when prices settle again.

It's amazing how many people aren't sponsored and can shoot whatever barrel they choose. I've got a Freak that I use all the time because I like the modularity.

Glad to see the stainless inserts again. At that price point, I might pick up the .677 and .675 in SS to round out the rest of my set.

i could see using it in the dealywind barrels. through trade i have an old freak with a 16" tip. i bet it weighs twice as much as my UL, maybe more. If it weren't for that i would use it, with a 14" on it.

Spoke to Trevor over at Hustle paintball about these the other day. He does not have any in stock himself, so he got ahold of GoG for an ETA and.........they don't have one.

I liked my freak when I had it on my Nerve

SS is better than Al. as well since its size fluctuates less with temperature changes

Some of us don't follow the hype and buy "the next best thing" when the old stuff works just as well. IMO the Freak is still the best kit out there.

I'm so clumsy I'd drop one of them and dent it, rendering it useless. Especially at $30 a piece

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
