Don't even mention what I said earlier:

The diameters of paintball barrels vary within 1/100th of an
inch. My Rufus Dawg sizer covers paint between .684 and .694, and
I've never found a paint outside that range. Further, even my old
barrels (made when Big Bore was a popular marketing term for
compatbility with swollen paintballs common in california) don't fall
outside this range. That being said, you need to use a tape
(adhesive backed) that has a thickness measured in thousandths of an
inch. Teflon tape (I can't find my roll) may be thin enough but,
then you gotta use an adhesive which would add to the overall
thickness. Let's not even get into the string/fiber-reinforced
tapes.
With all that being said, you're more likely to overcompress the
ball and cause a break that way. I mean just try shooting .692-.694
paint in a .684 barrel and see what happens.

No. It doesn't work. The paint to bore match would have to be perfect in order for it to work, meaning that you would only be able to shoot one type of paint through it.

Aahhhh, I think I see what you're trying to achieve.

 

Essentially you're trying to make the paintball into a "wing"?

Resistance on top = top spins slower, bottom faster = less resistance on bottom, more on top = higher pressure on bottom, lower pressure on top = the way a wing works.

Very novel idea man, turn the thing into an airplane. Great thought!

why dont you get out there and test it out and post pics and vids.

still shouldnt take that long. unless hes five years old.
i could take pics, but i the only video camera i have is literally from the mid 80's. also, i got air in hopes of going to my relatives house this thanksgiving, but that backfired. they are coming over here. so im sadly still waiting. i would have gone last weekend, but i went on a Scout mountain bike campout. if it aint one thing its another. i promise ill get the specs when i can. oh, btw, im 16...
