Empire Super Freak vs. DYE Ultra Light vs. GoG Freak vs. CP Barrel Kit

So, I've been browsing around on the internet for a while, looking to get a new barrel for one of my Quests, and I'm having a difficult time deciding which one I would like to get.

Here's the scoop;

Empire Super Freak: ($199)
Empire Super Freak Barrel Kit
It's around $200, but comes with three tips (although I would NEVER use the Apex tip), and 5 inserts. The barrels look ok, and I'm sure that the inserts would probably fit in with my Luxe barrel.

DYE Ultralite/Boomstick: ($135-160)
Dye Ultralite Barrel complete (Regular Ultralite)
Dye Carbon Fiber Boomstick Barrel (Carbon fiber back)
I've heard really good things about these barrels. I don't really have a big use for all the different bores, as I live in San Diego and there is very little to no humidity change, but I can't seem to wrap my head around $135-$160 for one barrel...

GoG/SP Freak: ($149-155)
Freak Barrel Kits
While I am not a huge fan of what SP has done/made in the last few years, (with the exception of the Luxe) this barrel system has been proven. I have part of a kit, but unfortunately, it's Ion threaded. I like the ability to change the inserts like the Super Freak too.

CP Full Bore Barrel Kit: ($205)
Custom Products CP Paintball Barrel Kit
This looks similar to the $30 single piece barrel that I already use, just has a back that you can use for bore matching. While I am a big fan of CP in general, I don't really see the point of spending another $175 for bore matching...

I'll take the J&J Elite over all the above.

In fact, I have several UL bores, I had a CP full kit, and I have a Freak w/ Stiffi CF tip, and none of them IMO compare to my J&J.

You said you have some/most of the old Freak kit, right?


Smart Parts Freak Back 2006 Aluminum Version - Cocker - Dust Black


Umm...why not spend $45-50 and get a cocker threaded back? I can confirm that the tip threading hasn't changed in 10 years...

I like the Sceptre better than the freak, definitely. If only I could get a Sceptre back in A1 threads so I could use it on my Angel too.
