The Deadly Wind Fibur barrel isn't really new news but I just wanted to share this for anyone that's thinking about picking up a new barrel.
Well I finally got my Deadly Wind Fibur barrel. There was a mix up w/the order and it took 4 weeks but I can say for sure that it was worth the wait. Lite doesn't even come close to describing this baby. I used my A1 barrel as a comparison (because I don't have my Stiffi anymore and the CP 2-piece is a tank compared to the others). So without further delay, pic's are worth a thousand words...

Of course as soon as i got these pic's done I had to see how it shot. I grabbed a bag of some old Stinger that had been stored in what could be only called the worst possible enviroment to store paint in and ran a couple of hoppers. First thing you'll notice is the noise reduction. My Ripper was pretty quiet before, now it's nothing short of inspiring, and accuracy was a HUGE improvement over the CP that I used, some part do to being able to use the freak inserts to better match paint to bore, but a lot has to be the silky smooth internal of the Fibur. In short this barrel is worth every penny and a great purchase for anybody that already has freak inserts.

Standard price is $90, but you can get longer or shorter length barrels for just a few bucks more.

I love my Deadlywind.

Funny you mention that, because the timmy does have kind of a "pfft" sound to it with this barrel.
I got it for $89 shipped, if your interested PM me and I'll let you know where I got it from.

I've just been informed I may be receiving a PM7 as a wedding gift...

Is it bad taste to add a 'cocker threaded CF barrel to the gift registry..??? ;)

Short barrels used to be a real big thing before airball fields became popular. They're actually fairly useful for playing front on hyperball fields where all of the bunkers are solid. Also, in regards to your statement:


That's what she said. :p

Nice review. It is definitely helpful because I'm thinking about buying one and couldn't find any trustworthy reviews. BTW, which freak insert did you get, or did you buy all 3 with the barrel? And, which bore size do you find most useful?

I bought one and got the 2 largest freak sizes. My porting is in a straight line down the barrel instead of spiral though. Great barrel for the price.

Your gonna love it...to answer your other questions I use .684 for reballs and .687 or .689 depending on the temp of the day. Unlike many I believe in a tight bore match and it usually pays off.

Just a quick update:
I had polished up the inside of mine with a shotgun swab and automotive wax. There was little difference. After reading on-line that a lot of people have used Rain-X on their barrels with good results I then applied some to mine. I was shooting wildly curving balls in all directions. (much like when velocity is too high) I tried a few different brands of paintballs before I realized it was the Rain-X and I washed it off. Problem solved. Evidentally you can have too slippery of a barrel surface; the balls need some friction to achieve a good trajectory. I just thought I'd pass along that info.
