I've only had one carbon barrel, it was a 10" Deadlywind when I first got my first Phenom. As we all know now, and I found out the hard way, Phenoms and Freak style barrels don't play well with each other.
You wont have a problem swabbing a DW or a newer style Stiffi (such as a Metal Free) but the first gen Stiffi's and some of the later models did not like to swabbed; they would pull the carbon apart because the cotton would get stuck and tear as it was being swabbed.
My Feedback (still growing!!)
