If you're getting a freak xl kit, it really doesn't matter what you use as the holster for it.

The control bore is all you care about (the 8" xl pieces).

The end tip controls a little bit of sound signature. I own the GoG CF one piece and the Deadly Wind Fibur-x8. I also own the Carbon IC barrel.

Literally the same, just a slight difference in weight and sound. The bore controls your "accuracy" and efficiency.

I use the Carbon IC barrel because i love the way it looks. My wife uses the deadly wind fibur-x8 because of the same. Not a huge fan of the gloss look on the GoG CF Freak barrel.

Pick your favorite like he said above pretty much.

The Deadlywind might be slightly quieter and slightly higher quality.

I’ll say that CF Barrel tips will sound louder than all aluminum Barrels or aluminum tips...

I have the gog freak xl barrel and the build quality leaves a little bit to be desired. There is a notacible lip between the end of the insert and the rest of the barrel.

That being said, it does not appear to impact performance. It definitely is better that my UL-s.

No way a Freak Barrel could ever be as good (much less better than) as a Dye Barrel lol...

In which way is it “better”?
