    Posted: 07 February 2005 at 3:42pm

Hey I have had my A-5  for close too two years now, and I just got a flatline barrel for it, and it's killing all the cockers and timmy's in range and accuracy. But, as i'm drawing lines on people, the paint is not busting , so we end up doing about 20 paintchecks a game. I just need some  help selecting a paint type that matched the flatline bore, but brittle enough to burst on contact. I have tried to turn up the velocity and it only screws up the accuracy.

Any help would be great........

I like pie.

Welcome to the Forum....I jus answered the same question on a another thread concerning what balls are best used with the Flatline, if you search for it, you will find the answer there.

I like to use PMI Marballizer's or PMI Premium's the best. The have a very consistant bore size which it the most critical thing on a Flatline. I have great luck with those two.

Try Nelson Special Forces paint. Our team is starting to use it exclusively. $80 for about 1800 rds but worth it.

For God's sake, the guy is new. Would it hurt you to type in your answer again?

http://www.ottersccustoms.com/paintc.html

that is a ball bore size chart, that site also has a barrel bore chart, very informative, but just remember that the flatline is a large bore barrel that uses small bore paint

have to agree with ihaveanitch, i've had my flatline for about a year, and i dominate woodsball like some can't imagine with it. draxxus paint is like a dream in a flatline, nice straight shot, consistent shot-to-shot and long long range, and it breaks on those long shots too.however, standard flatline warining, hold it perfectly level, don't tilt the gun to the right or left or the curve of the barrel will cause your shots to go out of control. i've done it.
