Talking Carbon Fiber Barrels! Sly vs. Deathstix vs. Deadlywind

Which company has produced the BEST carbon fiber barrel? Which barrel has been proven quieter? Most durable? Looking to pick up a barrel sometime soon. Just trying to gather some information. Thanks guys.

I cannot really give you all the information you are looking for as I have only really used the Sly in this list but I will say that other than my Shift kit that I use on my Clone, the Sly is the best barrel I have ever used. I swap it out almost every other weekend with my Shift kit and it has never given me a problem. Very smooth, accurate, quiet, and durable. I think you would be happy with it.

I purchased a dirt cheap deathstix kit if I don't like it I will shoot for something different.

I've got the Deathstix, and for the price, they're pretty useless. I could have bought a 1 piece stiffi that's just as light and just as nice looking, with just as many usable bores. Even the SMALLEST bore on the Deathstix is larger than any paint I've used in the last year and a half.

I've had my Deadlywinds kit for a while. I have 8 different freak inserts to choose from so I have no reason not to match bores and jump into the next game. I really enjoy the kit, it's a popular choice, and it's weight is.. Well.. It's carbon fiber. It's almost nothing.

The resell value of a Deadlywinds kit remains the same since I purchased mine about 5 months ago.

Id go with the deadly wind very light quiet and accurate and you can definitely get a good paint to bore match since it uses the freak inserts

Deadly wind is the only way to go. There is a reason Freak Inserts have been pretty much the standard for ages.

I use my freak inserts in my Phantom, Luxe, Rev-i, and G3. I would _never_ consider another barrel or platform over the freak inserts.

Seems to be my best option since I have a full freak set.

I tend to prefer DW's and Stiffi's for my CF barrels. The big plus with the DW's is the option to use freak inserts.
