Main reason I like the Deadlywind barrel is that it has minimal OD and is a straight pipe. This makes it easier for me to aim. Cant get that on other barrels that take inserts/bore sizers.

If you use brass inserts on a DW fibur, you pretty much get the best of both worlds.
He posts videos of himself on Youtube never leaving the furthest back bunker.
Even when playing against rental noobs, he is immobilized.
Logic and reason are anathema to him; but this does not deter him from prattling on.
He is the most interesting player in the world.

For me the DW are cheaper than the freak barrels, or more expensive by $5. Not only that, in the long run new DW fibre x would be cheaper than buying multiple used backs fore a freak system. Buying backs for cocker, a5, and ion threads get expensive fast

I've seen nicks and chips out of the resin on some carbon barrels over the years, sure, but I've seen the same or more damage on metal barrels. I've never seen nor heard of a carbon barrel snapping from a core sample, and though I'm not closed the to possibility, I'd be hard pressed to think an aluminum barrel would have fared any better (kind of hard to straighten an aluminum tube once it's bent).

That said, the benefits of carbon really lie in the weight savings and the sound signature, IMO. While it might not matter on an airball field, in a scenario game a quiet shot has helped me escape notice of nearby players several times. I remember picking off a whole group of players at an NJ NAM game from around 20 feet away laying in underbrush and every single one of them came out saying "damn your gun is quiet, I didn't realize you were that close!". Carbon doesn't resonate like metal does, so it doesn't add the "ring" to a shot like aluminum or titanium will. It's actually quite similar to brass barrels in that regard.

Whether it's worth the cost to you or not is a personal decision, and I don't tell people they NEED a carbon barrel. But for me and my style of play, I prefer them, and have been shooting them for years now. Started with Stiffi's and eventually moved on to Deadlywind and I with the exception of Alpha's Inception back, and the Lurker Eigenbarrel, don't really ever use anything else.
