I don't know anyone who has one so I dont have anyone to ask if its any good. You guys think a Sly carbon fibre barrel kit with the multiple backs is worth $115 or should I just save up and buy a stiffy switch?

Thats a very interesting link for accuracy tests and everything. They both basically look the same. Is this barrel system worth $115 though?

meh, just get a deadlywind if you insist on CF. If not, get an older Scepter kit.

Thanks 63VDub. I'd never even seen the deadlyind. Didn't even know anyone else was using the freak inserts. Thats pretty cool. I ordered one today.

Glad to hear it, Colin is a top notch guy who really researches the products he builds.

Good to hear. I look forward to trying it out. I like the idea of being able to use the freak inserts rather than having to buy a whole new kit. That way it only adds one barrel to the already full bag I lug around.

I'm not a big fan of CF barrels. I had a CCM and it just didn't do it for me.

I don't have a lot of experience with insert barrels, I have shot a few and was not impressed or unimpressed.

I like my lucky un1tec kit, and i have shot my friends ultralights a few time and liked them.

If I were to get more barrels I would probable get something like a few CP 1 piece barrels. I like the 1 piece bore over the 2 piece, tho i would have to give a CP 2 piece a try as well.

I have a friend with a septor and he likes it a lot, but I have never shot it, I guess i have a mental block about the insert kits espeshilly with the poor quality control of a certain company that make one...

^ hence the reason I shoot a Scepter. I don't have the link handy, but take a look at the PBN barrel test. it's the 2k scepter, not the 2k7. Best barrel kit out there.

I also dont like insert kits. I have a macdev matchstick kit that i got for 55$, cant beat it with any other barrels i have used. I do like the Dye UL's but they are pricey for a small kit
