Nice. That's a pretty big kit that covers pretty much every base.

I wish they would allow you to customize stuff.

I.e. I rather trade the apex tips for more sizes and a better case.

Interesting that they went so large with the bore sizes.

Maybe they are being optimistic about the future paint sizes. My .679 insert is pretty effective, but is still letting a few roll out over a day. I wouldn't be too upset if the paint size went back towards the center range of this kit.

I am hoping to be able to get a .675 in the future. I need 2 though so I can cut one down to fit in my Ace of Spades kit.

How'd they get around the patent or is there some sort of agreement in place?

I like the look. Wonder if the tips are compatible with existing freak backs?

Empire owns the parents. They bought it from the bank when Smart Parts went up for sale. If anything they should sue GOG paintball and stop them from making Freak stuff.
