Default Re: Barrel Kit

lets see.

Freak-Doesn't self clean well

Deadlywind and 1 insert-self cleans great,quiet

Hammerhead with 1 fin-doesn't self clean until you put rainX in it. After that shoots through breaks great. DEADLY accurate

J&J edge kit-Shoots through breaks well, decent accuracy.

Sceptor-Amazing accuracy, shoots through breaks.

I would reccomend a used 2000 sceptor. Might be hard to find though.

or you could just take sparkys (swoosh) advise on upgrading a spyder

I personally would go with a 14" J&J Ceramic barrel because they self clean and they're accurate and cheap ive seen some for like 30$

i'd go with the edge. supposedly its about the same accuracy as a freak, but for half the price, as long as you want it in black. j&j has different colored/length fronts on their site, but NO ONLINE STORE SELLS THEM!! i'd double check on that freak kit for $85, because its probably just the front, back, and 1 insert. the complete kit usually runs around $150.
