And idk what to get... I've heard various things about the invert nightstick, I hear its good for the price but isnt as good as stiffi or sly barrels. But the nightstick has a pretty nice pricetag... im so confused!:confused:

On one hand, CF barrels can look very cool and are very lightweight. On the other, they truly add no performance value to the marker, and, depending on the weave of the fiber, you might not be able to swab it in the case of barrel breaks. Also, the barrel is .692, which, to me, seems huge compared to how small paint is getting. I think you could probably spend less and get a better deal looking elsewhere, unless your heart is set on a CF barrel.
*side note - I love my Deadlywind Fibur barrel! Light, swabable, and uses Freak inserts!

I'm a Deadlywind owner also. The best bang for your buck!

I was at the warehouse just last week picking up a few items and saw the new Nightstick. Looked well made and frankly I couldn't tell the difference between that barrel and Stiffi besides the nice price. The barrel has a .690 bore not a .692. ;)

I'd go for a DW Fibur Null, but that's just me.

i didnt think they were releasing the fibur null.

The Null used to be on their website, but it is not currently. For the money, I'd go with the Fibur anyway, just for the use of the inserts, which the Null doesn't allow for.

I have owned/used just about CF barrel there is (owned CCM, Stiffi (both kit and single bore), deadlywind.....used cousins Sly kit)......only one I would buy again would be deadlywind. Single bore Stiffi suck, owned 3 all couldn't hit crap. The CCM, Stiffi and sly kits use very short control bores so it basicly does no good.
If you want CF get deadlywind.
