What is the difference from the 'X barrel' to a traditional barrel like the LW traditionally rifled barrel then (since both are grooved the full length)?  I thought the whole advantage of FX was the smooth twist system, so why are they now going back to a fully rifled barrel?  Sorry, that is a bit confusing to me…

Hey the normal smooth twist is smoothbore the majority of the way with the end of the barrel cut out and rifling pressed in at the end. Whereas smooth twist x has rifling pressed in the outside on soft liner throughout the barrel. 

If my wording is off check out this video for better understanding as I may not be 100% accurate.

I think this guy shows in depth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUm6Xpvv6yo&t=725s

Also Matt talks about it somewhere in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ0pbRs6NqI&t=52s&index=2&list=FLvBPiNy5rXN8Prvm-Bgm7sA
