I used one of these at Cup and a few times afterwards. Definitely a sweet barrel! I really like how the freak is not removable without removing the barrel front from the back

I admit, I really like the look. It's striking up close but subtle from a distance. It's lightweight, it isn't trying to do too much or be too different. I dig it.

I just purchased one about a week ago, and after seeing it in person for the first time a couple days ago, I really liked it. It is very light weight and sleek looking in person. I love all my carbon products so its nothing new for them to come out with another killer item.

How much is he paying you for this? You got my attention now. At $247 it seems a little pricey though.

Hi everybody, it seems to be a good barrel but I have to say that I'm more interested in the Acculock Barrel

A friend of mine has one of the Phi barrels (acquired through trades and probably some hand "jobs") and while it is certainly nice it's not worth that coin. If the control bore is accurately sized and the internal finish is smooth as a baby's bottom there's not much more you're going to get out of a barrel really.

As for the Carbon barrel, I'm not a fan of the aesthetics but since that's subjective oh well. It takes the XL inserts (nice) and is light if that's your thing. If functional I rate 1 out of 1 for being a product and functioning.

The cutouts in the tip look like crumple zones, like it will bend easily.

I mean, all these barrels use freak inserts. That's an 8 inch control bore. So basically no matter the cost everyone is shooting the same first 57% of barrel.

Black carbon infused plastic. Interesting. Although, to get strength and a deep black color, carbon must be used.

What I want to know is, will the front and back align perfectly so that the insert is perfectly centered? Will it be a mirror finish internally? So far I have only found two barrels that do this.
-High end dye barrels like the fiber ones, or the new UL+S.
-Luxe ICE stock barrel, they seem to be manufactured to higher tolerances than typical freaks.

Every other barrel I have some, you look down the tip and the insert, or smaller back bore is not -perfectly- aligned. It's shocking how misaligned the front and back on some barrels are.

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.
