The AA is the best barrel on there. I don't like insert kits.

Freak is a kit. The rest are normal. The freak is overpriced, but it's still better.

Not much of a difference between the AA and freak fronts. The freak front just has the flare thing with extra milling, while the AA is just normal porting. The only difference is looks.

But seriously...why even put the Freak with the rest? A kit is better than a two or one piece any day of the week.

how can you say it's only opinion? with a kit you can shoot any size of paint. with your single piece you are limited to only using a few sizes and still be accurate.

either get a progreassive or dont get one at all.
progressives are cheap and good. but the higher end ones use inserts which dent easily and are more expensive then a supperior barrel system(edge if your getting a freak JR, empire 7-piece or evil pipe if your getting a freak)

I could see getting something over the Freak Jr...however, an Empire 7-piece or Pipe kit have one problem; they only work with one thread type. If you ever switch guns and your new one doesn't have identical threads as your last, you'll have to buy a whole new kit. With the Freak you only have to buy a new $40 back and now your kit works with both guns.

Plus I see no clear advantage over the Freak with either of the other two; the freak has 8 diameters vs. 5 on the other two, and the Pipe's claims of accuracy down to fifty-thousandths of an inch are pointless since 1)paintballs aren't measured down to ten-thousandths, and 2)with an accurace enough micrometer you'd probably find a difference of several ten-thousandths between paintballs from the same bag.

As far as denting/crushing the inserts...well if you're that clumsy then I guess you should just get a two-piece kit. I've had my kit for a year, and I know several other people who've had theirs for years without breaking an insert. They give you a carrying case for a reason, and there's no point in changing inserts on the field. You just have to be careful.

umm...the emire 7-piece is just that. 7 pieces. meaning its got 6 backs.
i just really dont see the point of inserts...i mean why have more pieces then neccesary.
and as far as the threads go, you should have a decent gun before you buy a kit and since allmost all high/mid level guns use cocker threads there is no point.
as far as evil's claim that theyre barrels' measurments are accurate that is good since it means that the entire barrel is the same bore size and it doesnt change as much.
