I had a Flatline for a bit, and one day I tried my friend's gun with a Twister on it, and decided that the Flatline's extra distance (seriously, only about 20 ft) wasn't worth twice as much money, so the kid I bought it from took it back, thank god, and I bought my Twister.

I just tried out a flatline that a got for free from a friend.  Im not sure what i think.  The added distance is nice.  The accuracy at 150ft was very poor.  I was shooting Diablo Heat and PMI/RPS Superswirl.  I did have many breaks.  I was maybe able to his the target ~3/10x.  Even making minor adjustments did not seem to make a difference.  balls would curve left, then right, then right again, then left, then up, then right, then down, etc.  So I could not really determine how to make the adjustment to the bbl.  I also have a 14in. J&J Ceramic barrel which I also found to be about equally as inaccurate, but at a shorter range.  I think the best barrel as far as accuracy goes that I have would probably be the stock barrel or the 32 degrees precision bare,l

Years ago I had a Flatline on my 98... the balls went everywhere but on target even with good boresize paint match. I thought about getting one for my A-5 because I hear it is better, but I don't have much need for the extra distance and expensive small bore paint. I am happy with a good quality conventional barrel that groups tight until the end of it's range. I don't like being in the rear of the game either.
Think and give them all you have from the beginning, and never weaken!

I have a Flatline on my 98. I loooooove it. I try to use that more often, but it depends how it does with the paint Im using. The range is amazing, and the accuracy usualy great.

I loved my flatline, i found it to shoot through breaks, shoot well-enough to win at the 125-150 mark if you know how to shoot. But I had to sell it to use my new shroud from Opsgear. Now im looking at a ceramic 20", bigshot 14", or a werks 16".
