The extra-large inserts to serve a purpose. Throw one in a barrel when you're wanting to sell it. That way someone buying their first freak-bored barrel in the BST at least has an overbore to start with, before acquiring their own full insert collection.

The Stainless inserts are nice, but the new GOG inserts don't have the finish that the old SP ones did. I have three of the new small bore stainless inserts and had to polish them before I was happy. Polishing really seemed to make a difference. As far as sound, I have always felt the teardrop was the quietest of all the tips.

I just pieced my freak kit together for what i typically shoot. Went with .677, .679, .682 and .684. Cost $50 all together for the 4 and its works great on Valken paint which about the only brand i shoot...unless forced to use draxxus. I tend to slightly underbore by a size or two. Havn't had a need for a large bore size anywhere in the NW.

The dimensions of the Freak inserts can be not so accurate - it is bassicaly only trade marking - .001" = 0,025mm. In the common industry you can not manufacture things so accurately... commonly you are fine when you have accuracy +/- 0,05mm = +/- .002". Even common measuring instruments are not able measure so accurately. You need really good reason for better accuracy and paintballs are not such like reason.
JJ Ceramic is great barrel, very quiet, at least comparable SP AA which is commonly a lot expensive. But JJ is medium bore (17,5mm) and the AA is small bore (17,4mm). Small bore is better to today common paint I think. But it is question if is that problem for you. Commonly is such like difference not problem for common player- the barrel has accuracy is the same, he has only little smaller efficiency, what is "problem" maybe only for Stock Class markers on 12g.
...but I have find that the number of holes in JJ Ceramic is still unsufficient for optimal silencing - there is still small muzzle blast even on decently tunned pumps (not on excessively tunned Stock Class markers). But you can double the number of holes on JJ very easily on common drill press - use the existing holes (they are here in three lines - 60°) like guiding case / bushing and drill new holes trough, from inside. When you drill from outside, you do not need clear the splinters whitch came when the drill goes out.
I have modifiet my 16" JJ Ceramic in this way and he is now comparable with sillencer - on 25 meters no one will hear the shot and the impact of the ball is louder be even on closer range, so for the opponent is really hard to find from which place came the shoot.
