The carbon wrapped barrels by ABS are ok. They are relatively light in weight as compared to a similar all steel barrel of similar contour/length.
I had a 16" mid-gas 1-8 twist rock creek barrel chambered and wrapped by ABS. I did wait nearly a year for it and when I finally got it I wasn't that impressed with it on paper. I sold it and bought a Kreiger contoured/chambered by CLE, and that is that.
The carbon ABS barrel was light though. (about 1lb 6oz IIRC)
That was the group buy from hell, but the price was right. Mine is really, really accurate, thankfully.
