wow... I am soooo trying that tape idea on my stock a5 barrel...

run tests and stuff...

I will try:
Masking
Duct
Electrical <-this or masking will probably work
and Scotch

I have a general idea it would really work if done correctly...

Take a metal file and rifle the inside of your stock barrel.
I did it to mine and now it's more accurate then a flatline.
WAYYY more.
You shoot it up into the air and you see some crazy spinning on that ball.
I did it to my 98c stock barrel and it's FARRR better then my 14" PMI  and my Flatline system. 

Before I rifled it all the way I just made the top of the barrel really rough with the file and it made the ball jump up about a foot.  It made it shoot an extra 50 feet though.

About that straight flatline...
I would put the tape in the BACK.  If you put it in the front it's gonna put some crazy back spin on that ball and send it straight up.
if you have it towards the back (not in the way of the bolt)
then you'll get the backspin you need  and keep it from floating up,  see what I'm saying?

i will NEVER rifle a barrel. paintballs are not perfectly symetrical. even if they were, they have that liquid fill that is always going to be moving. if the paintball were to spin in flight, it would become off-balanced and fly off course. if it worked for you, nifty, but i would NEVER do it.

Well it was only a standard 8 inch barrel for a 98c,  I never used it so  I thought I might experiment a little.

i dont really want to spend 50ish bucks on a J&J only to risk jacking it up. when i get a new barrel, im gonna test the idea out on my crappy werks.

it costs 30 dollers.

and it has a teflon coating sot he bottem would be smoother while the top would be not as smooth.

its not gona work eitherway, im just saying if you wanted to try use a j&j because there cheap and the teflon thing..

why do you want a straight flatline anyways? I see nothing wrong with the "Old" one.  And with your idea your going to slow the ball right down to a "lob" speed posibly. And you will defintly have many ball breaks unless you use thick shell paintballs.

straight flatline=cheaper and easier to make.

it also is easier to clean, can be self cleaning and can be made at home for FREE!

also, the velocity would be the same, not slown down. paintball velocity is always gonna be about 280fps for me.

ill work around ball breaks somehow...

But with the top of the ball clreating fraction it is gonna break balls and slow it down. But thats my opinion. If you want to make it, knock yourself out. with thin shell paintballs they will defintly break at the level of friction at like 280FPS. Have fun though

would you use thin shelled paint in a regular flatline? use marballizers or some strong stuff. small caliber too.

Xball bronze and silver work REALLY well in my flatline.   Silver doesn't like to break long distance though.

In theory this should work but a lot of fine tuning would be required to make it any good. It is very unlikely you will get it right first time so you would have to buy more than one barrel making it more expensive than buying a flatline.

So, has anyone tried it yet?

I was also thinking about (along with the rough top), putting a straight line of porting on the top as well.

Thats an easy way to test if it works.

the problem is it might break paintballs and even it that doesnt break em when paintballs do break for whatever reason or u just needed to clean ur barrel the squeegy would pull the tape out
