I think they should drop the price a little

I never used the flatline barrel before I heard good reports on it don't get trigger happy

go to www.pbreview.com and in the search ,on the top right, type flatline barrel.

$120.00 is the current price fer the 98c Flatline, I got mine a few months ago fer the same price....so the price on it will not go down unless Tippmann decides to create another type of long range barrel system.

i don't think its worth the money why spend your money on a toy that just makes your balls go further.(My balls are filled with paint.) The frigen thing is $120, its worth more than my spyder don't do it.(Oh by the way spyders are the besssssssssssssssssssssssssssst ya man!!)When you can use the money to buy food for your family when you live on the street. So over all i think it is an awsome deal so do it man. It is totally worth the money.(piranha can blow spyder out of the water)

why people say the flatline stinks is cuz they cant install it properly or have trouble installing it

i had noooo problem at all just read the instructions and buy draxxus paint (can be any type)(i use the practice stuff and it works great and its really cheap) you would need to fanangle with your velocity and turn the tip of the barrel a little till its strait, cuz it will add side spin to the ball.

any other problems or questions bout it pm me and i will respond

Ive only voted "yes" once....Im not like those other haters that cant install a simple piece of hardware (the Flatline).

And on that note...SPtippmann98 isnt the only one who knows bout the 98c Flatline.

well i had one it will make your shot go further like it sez but i dont like how it shoots so i just use a 16 in sniper barrel and it does fine and its deffinitely worth the money. matter of fact mine for sell on ebay right now and someone bided one it im geting 80.00 for it so far and im happy with that.

its like a boat your happy with it for two-days  

the day you get it and the day you get rid of it.

^^^^^^i agree!! the flatline isnt worth it. it isnt very accurate at close range and you have to buy expensive paintballs to work in the flatline.

shoot to kill!!

get the flatline then shoot menace out of it. ive shot over 6 cases worth of menace and i have not had a single break in my a-5. Also bye a barrel condom because the flatline barrel plug is extremly fragile. Mine and my friends plugs both broke on the first day out. But thats my only complaint
