i hear that the a-5 flatline sucks becuz when it chops u have to take the whole thing apart and clean the barrel and reassamable it. the when i read review its great. So i wanted to know ur opinions. Also if u have a LPK-Palmer-Flatline-Egrip setup let me know.

Na flatline isnt as bad as everyone makes out it doesent chop balls often if you use right balls which arent realy hard to find

PS. you cant have a Low pressure kit when you have a palmers stableiser because they go in the same place on a gun.

just use paint with a thick shell and you'll be fine.

You have to use a secondary reg. The Male Palmer's Stabalizer is a great choice if you use co2.

I have a A-5, Flatline, E-Grip, Palmers setup. I love it. The A-5 Flatline doesn't break balls and is super easy to take off and clean.

EDIT: Good job being a noob, Sgt. Tippy.

Chopping paint has nothing to do with the barrel. At that, the Flatline rarly breaks paint unless you bought it at Walmart. And its very easy to clean.

The only way you are going to chop balls is if your shooting to fast and I dont think that is going to be a problem.

Scenario:  Team game ending up being a one on one.

If you usually end up in a close quarters situation where you both are charging each other the flatline will do you in unless you think to make up the downspin difference. 

Expirence:  I've ended up going one on one in a corner of a woodsball field many times and the people never adjust their aiming, so their balls usually go over my head while I pop 'em 4 out of 5 times.  Whenever I'm playing with a flatline in the group they always break balls.  That'll ruin the game usually.

But, you know that's just me.

Your not going to chop with an A-5....

Iv never had more than average breaking with my Flatline unless I was using really bad paint, the velocity was too high, it was installed wrong, or it was really cold out and the shell was brittle.

Just you.
Whenever you upgrade you have to become familiar with the new feature you have just added. The only way you can do that is to continue playing with it. I have 2 A-5s. One I use solely with the Flatline. It is very easy to maintain and install. It works great for me.
You will get to know what brands of paint you can trust the most. If you go cheap you will get cheap.
