He makes several models. A hybrid which is just as described in regards to the barrel to wood connection. He also makes an enclosed track gun that is unique in construction. Somewhat like pictured here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/71782262@N08/7605469172/

The tube portion of the hybrid, were originally titanium, then later aluminum. The tube runs nearly the full length of the gun. These are very similar to Daryls early models. I have had a 50 in Yokoogi hybrid for years with no issues. They were avail from Hanapaa in the past , but don't see them listed on their site any longer.
Bill McIntyre wrote:But I wonder why he went from titanium to aluminum? That seems like a step backwards. When I bought my first Wong, Daryl offered a choice of aluminum or titanium, but he dropped aluminum shortly after that. Now all he offers is carbon fiber.

Apparently, the switch was a cost saving measure and not related to functionality. I did a search on the other site and saw a couple of remarks that indicated that cost was the reason for the change. Seems like something that should be worked out rather than side-stepped for a "premium product."
