Hey I just thought I would post what ive experiance with the deadly wind CF barrel (http://www.deadlywind.com/store/wisper/index.html)

Pros:
Takes freak inserts
Light weight
Quiet
Shoot though breaks
Comes in 12", 14" and soon 16"

Cons:
Price ($75)
AC threading only
Can't swap lengths(like with freak tips)

After playing with this barrel on my Mag I love it, im glad I chose this over a freak barrel front and back. The look of the carbon fiber is awesome and the absence of weight is nice. Shooting thought breaks was a breese... I've got the ULE trigger pull and I ripped a hole hopper of paint out to test it in 35deg weather... I was getting breaks but it was VERY old premium with lots of dimples but the paint just oosed out the porting and cleaned out after acouple shots; loss of accuracy was minimal and im my opinion it's well worth the $75. Just picked up the freak kit for another $75 at actionvillage.com and you've got a very nice barrel combo and all the inserts you need for $150.

AC threading only
Unless you're thinking of getting a Stage 5 or something...

I still think that Deadly Wind sounds like what happens after somebody eats too many beans....

Sounds like a nice barrel, I wish I had the money to shell out.

You could in theory switch sizes out. Just, it would be a lot more costly. Buy two barrels, a 12, and a 14. Simple, lol. Someone should do a comparison of SLY, Stiffi, and Deadly wind CF Barrels. I'd read it.

yeah, have only been in about 20hrs in the last 2 weeks.. sorry for the delay. About the only thing I can to do is try to keep on top of emails while im gone.

No 14" right now. They are being worked on, and will proably be a little over 1 month before they are done, assembled, and ready.

we will be getting in 14" and 16" at the time.

Cool?
Thanks-
Colin

No I know, it's not that. I was just saying, it's possible. It says it on their website. But there would really be no reason to switch from a 12 to a 14... If anything you'd want to go from a 14, or 12 to a 10, but they don't have 10's and don't plan on it. Which is one reason why I would go with a SLY barrel.

This isnt a barrel system you should use if your looking for multiple lengths...it just isnt cost effective. I think a regular freak would be a better solution.

I've been wanting one for the past few months but still out of 14's...grr

Some other guy asked him about a 10" version he told him he could do it, he would just cut 2" off the 12" one because the porting on the 12" is as far back as it can go already...
