They work amazingly, just keep in mind that you have to over-bore at times, depending on weather or how fragile your paint is.

Whenever people ask I always recommend this or the HammerHead barrel.

The two don't really compare, because the iFit is a bore sizing kit and the HammerHead is a fixed .688 spiral rifled bore. So I will give you the breakdown on both (with normal paint).

The HammerHead: Shoots straight without having an absolutely perfect paint/bore match, but anything under.682 will still be a little sloppy. Over any extended distance it will put a slight left curve on your shots.

iFit kit: Straight shots no matter what size your paint is. Shoot anything from .667 to .692 with the 9 piece kit. Helps your efficiency by achieving a perfect paint/bore match.

The conclusion: Both are amazing choices. So at that point your 2 deciding factors should be these:
1) What's the average paint size in your area? It's .685 at my home field, so for me the hammerhead works perfectly there. Although traveling I found some paint to be .675, so it didn't work too much better than your average barrel.
2) How much are you willing to spend on either option?

Hope that helps!
