does the deadlywind barrel use exchangeable backs or does it only fit on one thread type.

Only one thread type. The Fibur they sell uses Freak inserts and the Null is a simple one-piece. If you want a Carbon Fibre with multiple backs, you could look into Stiff Tips and Stiffi kits, or Sly barrels.

ugh why go with sly when the deadly wind is so much better?

with a sly kit you are still limiting yourself since the different backs will have different bore sizes

gun A will have sizes .68-.685 gun B .686-.691

you get my point

there is also the matter of swabability
put a swab in a sly and what happens? the resin comes with it and your barrel starts to unravel from the inside out
put a swab in a Deadly Wind and what happens? you get a clean barrel

the sly wins on looks... but whats looks if you can't hit anything?

what I would recomend is to invest in the lapco barrel adaptors and then go the route of Deadly Wind

and yes I am very biased, I have a DW fibur barrel and wouldn't use any other

Have you shot the Sly, Galihad? Ever heard "Don't knock it 'til you've tried it..."?

Galihad, they are both carbon fiber, and if you go by that theory that the residue will unravle it then they both would fall in that category. They both are good, but I will swear by my sly. I mean I don't see too many people with dw, but Infamous(pro team) shoots them and a few other pro teams do to, but that is besides the point. Sly is amazing and would recommend it.

quoted from the Deadly Wind website
"then a super slick "Silkfiber" inside that can be safely swabbed"

Deadly Wind is the only carbon fiber barrel that advertises, and recommends the use of swabs on their barrels
Sly barrels can't say that
