8 inch Control Bore – What it is, and why you want it!
What is a control bore?
The control bore is the part of the barrel that is reduced or increased in size by the user to fit or “bore match” the paintball barrel to the paintballs being used. Because these bores can be quickly swapped and easily stored, the Freak XL offers one of the easiest to use, and most complete interchangeable bore system on the market.
Why would you want a longer control bore?
The original five inch insert Freak system has won countless tournaments, and is one of the most popular barrels in the history of paintball. Paintball players love the original Freak System – but always pushed us to produce a version with an eight inch control bore. So after some careful research and engineering the Freak XL was born.
The longer control bore keeps the air behind the ball for a longer period of time – and as a result can transfer more of its energy to the paintball before being dispersed. This means that you get more out of every PSI you send down the barrel which results in greater efficiency, reduced sound signature, and lower operating pressure required by the marker – just by switching to the Freak XL barrel.
What Is Borematching? How do you bore-match?
What is bore-matching?
Bore-matching is the practice of matching the outer diameter of your paintballs to the inner diameter of your paintball barrel bore. The diameter of a paintball can change from batch to batch, day to day, or even hour by hour depending on environmental conditions, so it is important to have a barrel that can change quickly and easily with your paint. No other barrel system is as quick and easy to bore match as the Full Freak System.
How to bore-match:
Using the paint you plan to play with for the day, insert one of your paintballs into the base of the insert.
If you have to blow very hard to push the ball through the barrel, you need a larger insert.
If the ball rolls out without blowing at all or too easily, you need to use a smaller insert.
You should be able to easily blow the ball through the barrel with minimal effort, like a blow gun.
Repeat this process with several paintballs to find an average size that works for your paint. Depending on weather conditions, you will want to repeat this process one or twice per day to insure optimum performance.
Bore-matching for Accuracy
The Freak offers a comprehensive selection of bores, each honed to a incredibly smooth finish. By bore-matching your paintballs have a more linear path down your barrel which leads to more accuracy and less ball breakage.
When a barrel is over-bored the ball moves around as it travels down the barrel. As the ball collides with the sides of the barrel, unneeded spin and unnecessary friction impacts the ball reducing accuracy and weakening or even breaking the shell.
When a barrel is properly bored, the ball fits snugly fits inside the bore. Since the paintball fits the bore of the barrel, the ball is propelled straight out of the barrel with maximum accuracy and minimal friction.
Accuracy is the most important feature of a paintball barrel, and the bore matching of The Freak System is the most accurate barrel available.
