smoothest 2 piece barrel

I'm looking into picking up a 2 piece barrel kit with a number of backs, autococker threading. I'm not trying to make a "what is the best barrel" thread because that's always subjective, but what brands/kits tend to have the smoothest bore, best tolerances and good porting?

Stainless steel is going to always have the smoothest bore...dye boomsticks or the freak system would suite you best.

I have used J&J ceramic barrels for years and they are super smooth. I think Stiffis or other CF barrels are slick too

He asked for smoothest bore. Cf anything isn't verry smooth I have both dw and stiffi. I haven't checked the ceramic ones but aren't they single bore?
I still stand by stainless steel for smoothest or titanium

The J&J edge kit comes with ceramic backs..
They are as a bore kit, True to the size labeled and a consistent accurate system.
The above cannot be said about the freak system.

Might also add that they are made here in the USA and you can call and make custom orders.

A Freak back with with an All American front shoots well and has a nice sound signature too I think. I also really like Deadly Wind barrels but those use Freak inserts as well so I don't know if you were looking for that. Just about any decent barrel system out there is going to have better tolerances than the variations in the paint you are shooting.

I don't think the ifit is very smooth at all, I have one and use it but it could have been made nicer. SS will be the smoothest, for aluminum the furious barrels are amazing.

Ifit is very consistent. But not smooth you can see the tooling marks.
JJ are smooth and consistent. No frills just great product.
Lapco IMO is by far the smoothest. But you pay for it.
I run JJ kits and have lapcos as well.
JJ is best for money. Lapcos are money is no object.
