Yeah, I'm going to agree. I'm friends with quite a few players on Boom and I haven't heard of a single issue, I've also got quite a few friends who own Super Freak kits from varying batches that haven't had any issues with the CF tip (which is pretty much all they use).

This is what I initially thought but when I stumbled upon this thread I was like holy X-mas... I'm not the only one. It doesn't effect performance at all, but you don't want to be that guy with the defective batch.

Honestly, if you email Empire and say "Hey, I'm having issues" they'll get you taken care of. When I get my Azodin barrel I'll repeatedly thrust my Exalt swab through it and see what happens.

I've used the same rubber squeegee going on 7 years now. Probably why I'm only now hearing about this carbon fiber chipping. I've had the Deadly Winds Freak barrel since its inception and haven't had any issues.

Rubber > Cloth

Keeping on topic though, these barrels look outstanding, and if you ever happen to make one in white, I have cash in hand...

I know that these barrels are well worth it. The weight alone makes them desirable. Mix one of these with a 48/4500 and you are good to go, makes for very easy snap shooting.

I run the two piece on my CF Axe and I notice a difference in overall weight (every little bit helps) and a reduced sound signature while maintaining equal performance.

The control bore length on the Azodin two piece is (5" 2/32)
The control bore length on the Freak inserts are (5" 4/32)
The honing on the Azodin CF barrels are a little bit more polished than the Freak inserts. So when using paint like I do at Cousins Paintball Long Island the Azodin CF barrel and the .687 bore size is actually a great choice.

sorry that other areas use much smaller paint, none of you know what you are missing out on.

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.
