Bang for your buck

What is your best bang for your buck for a barrel kit?

Used Freak kit. They are all over the BST forum. If you want to get fancy, get the Deadly Winds Fibur and a Freak kit.

Either that or one of the best. Depends on personal preferences.

I think he's referring to the concept of coupling a single underbore with a stock barrel. Which I agree is the best bang for the buck.

Although there has been a couple 1 piece barrel kits. I know Odyssey made one, and I know at least one other company made one years ago also.

Sorry, not quite getting this. Mind extending the explanation or giving a link? Looks like I might've been too hasty with a reply, and I'd like to know the point I missed...

If you only ever use 1 paint and the size never changes, a new 1pc would be a good value. My field has 4-5 different balls and they are all different sizes. Without a freak kit, I'd be very frustrated.

Basically, getting a single good underbore barrel is all most players need. If the paint is extremely large, then you can use the stock bore.
