The A5 Flatline is basically a 98c Flatline barrel, but an inch shorter, as fer performance, accuracy and the paintballs to use to get the best results, theyre both the same and the only difference between the two is the shroud and the installation process.

i would say if you want to get rid of that plastic shroud, get this:

this is just a metal shroud. it would be all metal so there you go. i havent owned either flatline. i hear its good and have some friends who have them. they say they're really good. i would just get the metal shroud for your 98 flatline.

the 98 flatline is much more effective then the A-5 flatline. it is 14 inches which is the most effective length for a barrel.

so if u want range. stay with 98

what? the A-5 flatline shoots the same exact length as the 98 custom one. The extra length doesn't make it shoot any farther, thats been proven with every other barrrel also.

And have you even shot both?

yes i have and ive had PLENTY of oppinions from others that say the exact same thing.

its probably not the length, but the 98 is a better flatline then the    A-5

The 98c FL doesnt perform better than the A5 FL, cus theyre both the same type of barrel, one is jus longer than the other and vice versa....
