Any advise on small freak tips

Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with short freak fronts like these (link)

I'm not concerned with noise (I kinda like my gun loud) but more with function. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Also if anyone has any they would like to get rid of - let me know

I had a short one (I believe the same company made them). It was a clone of a DYE boomstick except very short and it fit on a freak back.

I noticed a loss in accuracy and sold it.

Just make sure you check his feedback and I hear it's better to order from his eBay site looks like he has a couple of freak tips on his eBay store right now.
I prefer non ported this way if you break paint all will come out with squeegee don't have to hassle with ported holes

I've been making stubby Freak tips for at least seven years now. (Link.)

Since the tip, like any standard Freak tip, doesn't touch the ball, there's no measurable change in accuracy.

Been using an old AAA Paintball 1" tip for years. I also have WWA's tips (only order from him on Ebay, never buy from his website). Going to PM Doc now to see what he's got for me
As mentioned earlier, there is no affect on accuracy. The shots are a little louder. Once you go short, you don't go back!

couple of Quick questions for Doc ... I'm interested in the M4 flashpoint ... any idea when you will have those in stock again? Do you have any that are black? Do you ship to Canada? If so, how much would it cost to ship one of the fronts? Thanks ...

I guess I could have PM'd you these questions - feel free to PM me back if you would prefer to discuss that manner ...

One thing to note that no one else mentioned, you don't loose accuracy, but your velocity will be a bit lower when you switch from a longer tip to a shorter one.

In a longer tip, even if the ball is not touching the sides it is still being accelerated by the gas until it is past the first porting. Depending on what tip you had before you may loose from 10 to 30 FPS so be aware and re chrono when you are changing tips back and forth.

-They're in stock now. The store software was supposed to send me a notification, but apparently it didn't.

None in black at the moment, sorry. I do anno runs when I can, but they're hard to keep in stock. Planning at least a black run shortly, but I can't give a solid ETA.

Yes, I ship to Canada. Unless you're in a hurry I send those First Class, as it costs about half as much as Priority. For a single tip, should run just under $11 USD.

Doc.
