Hey guys so im looking to buy a barel kit or barrel for my evil pimp.. i like the idea of a two piece barrel but dont really know what to look for, i looked at the jr. freak set but also want to represent so am also considering the evil barrel set, any advice at all would help..

the evil pipe is good, have never heard any complaints about it, really there isnt a huge purpose in a 2-piece barrel beyond its easier to pack away and you can change the tip. i love my freak kit, lots of options for just the right fit. if you want to go high end look into the DW fibur (yes thats how its spelled) arguably the best on the market (around $160 for the barrel and full freak kit) the freak itself is still good just heavier than the fibur, although you can change the tips (iv heard some mixed results about this) id stay away from the stiffi kit. what else.....J&J edge, i havnt heard anything back on this but J&J stuff is gennerally good quality

dont buy a evil kit just for the name though

Yes, inserts just slide into the back of the DW barrel.

Other kits that may or may not be avaible in the threads you want:

Titanium Longbow
Macdev Matchstick (older Macdev kit)
Macdev Shift
Paintball Assassin Deathstix
Sly
Stiffi Switch
Angel barrel kit (yes, it's avaialble in other than Angel threads...I was surprised when I learned that)
J&J Edge
Custom Products

But in reality, almost every barrel kit with a quality paint that matches fairly well will shoot essentially identical. Deosn't matter if you spend $80 on a J&J Edge kit or $180 for a DW Fibur or $200+ for a Titanium Longbow. In the end, as far as ACCURACY is concerned, they're all at the mercy of the paint quality. I've owned most kits, I currently still HAVE Switch, Sly, Deathstick, MAtchstick, Kaner, Odyssey, G3, Angel, Un1tech, and several other kits, so I do have a bit of experience when it comes to comparing barrel kits.

ya all sp threads are the same except for the older shockers, idk who started saying ion/impulse threads but it throws people off and makes them think every other sp marker has different threads

o! one very important piece of advise!, dont get anything above 14" on the dw or else it will not fit in the freak case, i got 14" and was very glad i did because it fits perfectly in the case
