Hello Flatline owners.  Since you've had your Flatline for a while, do you still have any use for any other barrel?  Is the Flatline the say all end all barrel?  Or do you still keep _____ barrel around and never/somtimes/always use it instead?

Why?

I rarely use my flatline b/c i am more conserned about fire power not distance. I have a evil pipe kit. if you deside to ditch the flatline, go for a barrel kit that has inserts so you then will rarely break paint. Empire, Freek, A-3, Ronnin, and evil all are good kits.

I have a Freak kit, which hardly gets any use (on the A-5, anyway) since I got the Flatline.

When I use my A5 (almost always) I usually use the flatline so that I have the extra range when needed. If I'm playing a tournament or on small fields I usually put my bigshot on instead though. It's slightly more accurate, it's less visible from the front, can be cleaned easily during a game, and it isn't very picky on paint. In a woodsball game on a big field or a scenario there's no doubt that I'd choose the flatline though, the extra range is incredibly useful there.

No barrel but a Flatline has been on mt 98/RT and A-5 since I got them.

The E-Bolt came with a Boomstick, but soon as I get an Ion, it will become my woods gun and get the Flatty treatment.

I hate my flatline, sold it and bought a Lapco bigshot.
Cant go wrong with the bigshot

I think the a-5 flatline is decent though, especially because its very compact.

Sig is WAY too big.

I love my Flatline except for the added profile and weight.  Very accurate and good quality.  I sometimes use the stock barrel though in close range or airball tourneys where I just sling free paint at people.  Yes the gun in my sig can sling paint, 13bps to be exact.  That is okay in tourneys.

I usually use the flatline. I have a pistol with 8" barrel that I still use once in a while.

I use my 98 Flatline whenever I feel like bringin out the 98, but I rarely if
ever still use the Flatline I got for my A-5. I use my J&J Ceramic instead.

Did you talk to tippmann about it? They probably would fix it for free if all you did was shoot paint through it (don't bother if you did something stupid like shooting marbles). Send them an e-mail or call them and see what they say.

I'm the opposite, I never use my flatty on my 98, and use it exclusively on my A5, I find the A5 flatty to be a superior product, fits better, easy to align/change, shorter and not as fugly as the 98.

A flatline is the kind of barrel that either you love or hate, black and white, light side and dark side, there's no in-between.
