I believe the junior has only 3 backs. Don't get a freak, though. They're bad barrels, the backs aren't sized well and you're supporting a company with really bad ethics.

The point is it has less backs than the full kit.

i could be wrong but i thought the freak jr has 4 backs while the freak has 8, i just got a dw fibur barrel with a freak kit, love it
Jrs. come with 3 backs, i thought the freak jr. was just a crapper version of the freak, is it really necciserry to have 8 inserts though? are the other 5 worth buyin?

and the freak Jr's tip/back suck balls and you can only get them in one color to my knowledge.

yes it's worth it to have those 8 inserts that way you can find the perfect fit, not all balls are made the same, mine just happen to bigger than others

I though the freaks tip/back were the same, you can get them in the kit in ether black or aliminum, you can buy seperate tips like red.

You can buy separate but it will cost you way more money in the long run. and unless they have changed it up the Jr's back is different s well as the front.

well...back in the day when i played paintball, the freak jr had a progressive barrel type front like the all american, while the freak had a tear drop barrel front. Both essentially the same

progressive
teardrop
Freak
all american

edit- after doing another image search, came up with this
freak jr tip is different from the rest

Unfortunately for the consumer, not all the backs are made the same. Its not uncommon for a back labeled .689 to actually be larger than the next one up (a .692 I believe). This has been a problem since the freak came out.

would it be worth it to get the regular freak tip or the all-american tip? will this help my accuratcy at all?

There is so much more involved with accuracy. The tips will help out a little(better porting on some causing the extra air to be vented better which equals better accuracy) but I'd just stay with the stock tip, or just buy a DW fibur barrel and not worry about tips.
