Freak kit barrel syle, just about looks?

Thinking about getting a kit soon. I assume the style All-American or Freak is just about looks but wanted to make sure.

Also I assume it doesnt matter if its the smart parts or GOG kit.

Gog bought out smartparts when they went under. The all american barrel front is a style of barrel. I have a pic in my thread of all american front and freak back

Yeah I knew that I was looking to getting an SP1 about a month ago.

I was just wondering about the performance. I will probably go with the AA.

AA has more porting, the porting is equally distributed, and runs from the threads to the tip.

The freak front has less porting and it is over a shorter distance.

The freak jr front has a few lines of porting for most of the front with a couple more lines added a couple inches from the tip.

The only difference you'll find beyond style MIGHT be a slight difference in sound signature (more porting=more quiet) and efficiency (porting too early in the barrel releases the air before it has finished accelerating the ball). Any difference would be negligible, so get what looks good.

Also, check out the deadlywinds Fibur. takes freak inserts, made of carbon fiber, super awesome.
