Empire 14" Barrel Kit (http://www.actionvillage.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=5Yt-UWjg_y9-uyyqthm--WIp7aa7mLGqrcM=?ProductID=14WsFAY77_0AAAD7ICIwXFDu )
or should I just go with something like the J&J 14" ceramic barrel?

do you play at alot of different fields or do you stick with one type o paint? another though anyone who has the equipment to machine a barrel within thousanths of an inch means they have the expertise to make a good product. i'd say get the empire!

The J&J Edge kit is an excellent barrel kit for a low price. I would actually recommend it above the Freak kit. I have both, and kind of like the J&J a bit more than the freak.

On a side note, I had a teammate who had an Empire Kit but he sold it because it wasn't that great....

yeah, i have one and its not that good. the finish isnt very smooth at all. i like my stock matrix barrel better (supposedly unmilled ultralite).
