Looks like it might work but to have the whole top part of the barrel covered with latex or rubber might cause way too much backspin. Too much backspin will make too much lift. I think from the physics of it you have a good plan. Good luck I can't remember right now but I'll post when I remember where I found the article on the physics and test data of how much backspin (speed of backspin) effects flight. If you get it to work it would be nice to try out.

How hard wuld it be to make a barrel like this in a metal shop, just wondering because that is a way to keep from putting on tape three times a day. I'm going to try out the tape thing w/ my stock barrel and see what happens. I'd rather take five minutes to put on some tape than pay $100 bucks. Why would you squeegie it so much anyway, the idea is to use a crappy barrel you don't care about anyway, just put the tape on once, and if a ball busts, squeegie it out and keep shooting without tape the rest of the day.
20% of people understand percents and 94% don't, so keep them out of sigs

Heyy i did this the day after i got my flatline for my 98c last year and i still have the dye excel barrel i tried this on haha. Ok what u do is put 3 inches of TEFLON TAPE at the beginning of any barrel MAKE SURE AFTER U SCREW IN UR BARREL THE TAPE IS STILL ON TOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Put some kind of glur(rubber cement or super glue...   if you feel lucky) on the back of the tape. BECAUSE the ball has another 10-13 inches of barrel to go it will stable and shoot in a 1.8 foot RADIUS gathering at 75 feet(roughly) and will have a flatter trajectory and shoot 40-80 feet further then a regular barrel. Also since TEFLON TAPE is soft(or i think thats the reason...) I didnt brake any balls. Have a nice experiment MY BARREL WAS 16 INCHES LONG!

mr.syrus guy,  I don't think the person  who thought up that flatline went through years of design and hard work.
He probably worked on it for about a month.

Syrus: apology accepted. just please: dont be a jerk. you make people want to be jerks back. not cool. oh, i shot about a hopper full before my air ran out and the tape stuck fine. just get good tape.

Hello again, it's not the idea that matters, it is how feesable the idea is. Asking an opponent to hold on while i change "tapes" is not on! But i sincerely apologise DeTrevni and next time i promise to be more constructive guys. Your "idea" is okay and i hope you come right with it, personally i'll stick with my flatline.

not to burst your bubble but or anything.....But this has been done before lmao about three years ago I think it was posted on m98c.com (I think that was the name it had that pimpen cartoon girl with the m98c in her hand) and on another one they make an attachment out of radiator hosing to your barrel that is curved and also gives you the flatline effect if done right.

Then buy a Flatline??
He is just trying to find an affordable alternative for people that don't want to dish out 100 bucks for a barrel.
But if you are too lazy to reapply 2 cents worth of tape 3 times a day, then stop being cheap and get a Flatline. He doesn't have all of the answers...

Why did you bother?
It's an idea. Atleast its original, and noone else has ever posted about it. And I don't see you coming up with any ideas. Atleast this one is feasible.
And this is FAR from the "worst idea of the year".
Now go get back on your ship and sail back to Africa.

Hey numbnuts, he already tried it and it wasn't breaking balls or anything. He just hasn't had a chace to get more scientific results, like exact ranges or groupings. Just ebcause a flatline is expensive, doesn't mean there's an affordable alternative. If it works, it works.

Rather than slamming a guy for actually coming up with an idea, trying it, finding that it works, then trying to make it even better, how about you either add something constructive or go find another forum to troll?

its a starting point and i havent worked out all the glitches. i still havent been to my grandma's house, or any large amounts of land, but when i do, im gonna test it with different tape, different lengths and different widths. when i find the perfect combo, im going to post some pics and steps. plus, if you squeegee it out, just put some more tape in. duh.

hah... to the people suggesting a patent... i don't think it's going to work very well if all you have for a patent is "putting tap in a paintball barrel."

anyway... it might work... but probably not very well... but good luck anyway
