I want to get a new barrell for my PM6.

I have most of the inserts for a freak, so I just need a back and a tip to have an almost complete kit.

For an UL I need to just get one tip and have different backs.

So basically i'm asking what's your preference?
Should I get a UL or a Freak?

Money is no limit for me, I have enough for like:
2 UL backs and 1 tip
or
Get a back and a front for a Freak, and have enough for a few ups for my PM6.

So what's your .02 cents? UL or Freak?

Freak it. And get some ups for the PM, or more inserts.

Freak, because your ability to size is so much greater. Besides, you can get different backs for your other markers (not with the UL though).

I just picked up the freak back for my A1 and another AA tip, ran it today and was glad I went with that over the Angel expanded barrel kit. And like Hob said one back for each marker is cheaper than 3 or 4 for each (I've got one for all my markers now). Actionvillage has a sweet deal on AA tips right now...$31 for gloss black, take your pick of length (12,14 or 16). I love the freak although alot of folks prefer 2 piece barrels over 3 piece.

Get a deadlywind whipser barrel

Carbon fiber that uses freak inserts.

It by far the best barrel i have ever used, I wouldn't use anything else.

^^^ My thoughts exactly. I've actually been considering one but can't see spending the dollar amount for a barrel.

Well, that or a Proto two-piece, which I hear is pretty much the same thing as the UL, but much cheaper.

Excellent call, I had forgotten about the Whisper, or whatever is it that they're calling it now.

Hmm, I think I might go with that.
How accurate is it?

Anyone see any BST threads with the Whisper barrell in it?

most accurate I have seen, if you have a full insert kit to match to the paint and have a nice consistent gun you should be shooting ball on ball.

Don't have a full kit.
Bought a Back, Front, and 5 inserts for $50 a couple months ago for my shocker.

When I traded the shocker I included the freak barrell, no inserts.

So I think I'll try and find a Whisper and go with that.

I found one, but it was already sold.

Or since money is no object get all 3 ;)

then sell me the UL, please get it in dust silver :)

No really, all three are good barrels and you will not go wrong with any of them. if you always shoot the same kind of paint the different inserts are not needed anyway.

I hate scammers.

Just bought a LNIB Vlocity for $80 and now I read recent feedback of someone leaving negative feed on him for not recieving a Vlocityw/Gangster.
So now I have to buy a Halo, cause well I had a budget of about $200 for:

New hopper
New Tank
New barrell

Well I got the tank, but now I need to get a cheap hopper if I want some cash for a freak.
