Skip the freak man... get a Multiple Switch Pro System! They're supposed to be better in accuracy, the inserts are made out of steel rather than aluminum and the things look MUCH better... Not to mention it's like $50 less for the full set.

I'm personally picking up the Bizerk Pro... comes with 3 inserts for only $79 shipped

Bah, I may be new to paintball but it doesn't change physics. Pay the extra 50 bucks and get the freak system.

Steel inserts is not the way to go, the reason alot of paintball barrels are aluminum is not just the weight, but because they absorb and give off heat much faster than alot of metals available for a reasonable price. This is the same reason your car engine block is made out of aluminum, to dissipate the heat quickly.

Faster your barrel warms up between shots, the less it contracts, ohh, did I also mention Aluminum has a comparitively small change in diameter with fluctuating temperatures?

Now with the steel inserts you're gonna have some cold stuff on your hands, I'd say around -30 after 50 shots, give or take a dozen. Add the slightest bit of condensation on a ball and you've got an instant break when it tries to pass through that steel insert, which shrunk considerably more than an aluminum insert and just ruined your perfect paint to barrel ratio. Doesn't sound right? We all knew a kid who stuck their tongue to a cold flagpoke when we were young, and it definitely wasn't -30 outside every time.

Mull it over a while, it's pretty easy to understand.

Yeesh... NITRO! It's not an upgrade, it's a necessity! lol! Don't flame me like that man, I'm just trying to suggest a low cost alternative I'm sorry if it looked like I was downing the freak system... Although I have to say the freak looks like @$$...

The type of barrel for speedball that would be best for you,
really depends on what you are comfortable with
personaly.

Many other factors can be taken into account:

1. Some players prefer a longer barrel (14" or 16" inch),
because it allows them to "point" or aim the marker more
accuratly in their opinion.

2. Another consideration is what type of bunkers make up the
majority of the field. Some like a longer barrel for Sup-Air, so
they can attempt to "push" in the bunker, hence a smaller
profile. Some also prefer longer barrel for stick type bunkers
(piles of deadfall or brush) as you can stick you barrel through
the brush if need be.

3. Some beleive and feel most comfortable staying tight with
a smaller barrel. (whatever you feel secure with)

play with all the barrels you can and make an informed decision.

Have a nice day.

What kind of field do you play on? I play back, and I use a 16" Freak... it lets me push into the bunker and expose less of myself...

No worries kreno, didn't mean to snap but it was late and I just found that product to be a joke. I just can't imagine what would possess someone to use steel inserts other than to save money at the cost of performance, and that's not exactly something that'll help sales.

I own a J&J ceramic. Diablo Inferno fits it perfectly, 90 yards of accuracy out of a little rebel deluxe with the strongest spring I could find.

Not every J&J ceramic is the same bore size though, for some reason it varies from barrel to barrel... some are medium, some are large... That could be why it's hard to match paint to it...

Dunno if you guys have ever heard of Hogans alley but we are gonna be playing there. plus we plan on doing tourneys all over so safe bet ill be playing on both hyper and sup air fields.

Im going to be playing back so far I have

88cu 4500psi preset pure energy tank
2002 red vertical feed autococker
CP flame drop foward
ANS on off rail adaptor
and a clear 12v revy with x board

This is where i want to make my decision I have had a freak on my mag and loved it it was 14inchs but i played in the woods all the time. The regulars there seemed to all be using 10 inches and they all play speed ball So the question that popped into my head was why are they all using such short barrels.

When I bought my ceramic it had a sticker on the bag (talk about awesome packaging.) saying the bore size. I chose .689 over .691, .685 and .682

...but that doesn't mean that everytime n2 will be more consistent. I have used guns on co2 that are more consistent then one on n2. It was a hot day so there was no liquid. You have to think of all situations.

Sure, the bulk of the time n2 will be more consistent, but not all the time.
