If you're looking for added range and the abiltiy to curve shots, then the Apex is for you. Only you can decide if you get it or not.

Personally, I'd go with the flatline over the apex.

I agree.  The APEX is a weird barrel... forget about conventional straight shooting.

The Apex can shoot just like a regular barrel if you want it to.

Are you speedball or woodsball? If speedball, I'd definetly say NO. If you're woodsball, eh, it's really up to you. If they (flatline and Apex) are roughly the same price, I'd say go for the APEX. It has 8 different settings and it's not as picky with paint.

no, i hate apex. it kills the point of strategic placement of your team. basically all cover is null and void, and you look like a cheater. obviously, i hate the apex. get flatline.

You have gotten a number of suggestions from people who obviously haven't even read the available literature on the barrel. First of all, it can be instantly adjusted to curve the ball right, left, up or down. You can easily adjust, literally on the run, the AMOUNT of curve the barrel delivers. Adjustments range from Flatline trajectory to sharply upward curving flight paths. The left, right and down paths can be adjusted from slight to extreme. AND, run the adjustments back to "0" and the thing shoots like any straight smooth bore. Looks like the best of all worlds to me. I just bought one off Ebay for $89 and am eagerly awaiting its arrival!

At one time many people said the Flatline was cheating. The Apex is just another innovation like the semi-auto marker or the electric hopper, all of which were called cheats when first introduced.

Please provide a detailed review when you have a chance - some actual first-hand information would be great.

Thanks.

flatline + apex....both crap

dont waste the money...well the flatline has potential if you freaking baby the thing...if you want a solid performer that never lets you down, get a lapco bigshot.
Sig is WAY too big.

If you are looking for accuracy, no but if you want to cheat, yes

 

I say get Freak Barrel System

Tippmann Model 98= $140
Adco Sure Shot Sight= $33
32* Whisper barrel= $43
Shooting someone in the mask= Priceless

i would go with the apex it seems better than the flatline but you can get accuracy without money by just getting a longer barel if thats what your looking for.
