Maybe cause it took a genius years of research and money to come up with a great product. He must have not thought of STICKY TAPE and i $ 2 dollar barrel!!! But hey whatever rocks your boat! Next we can try using a balloon as a HPA tank, it just might work, what do ya think guys!!

 

 

hello, all i want to add is "biggest n00b of the year." Has anyone wondered why your mom hasnt killed you yet? Maybe you need to really try to stop making people hate you. you must not have thought. at all. but hey, whatever rocks your boat! Next, we can try to pee on an electric fence! it just might work, what do ya think guys!!

 

god that was fun!

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.

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.

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.

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.
In a world where everyone has gone mad, only the lunatic is truly sane.

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!

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

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.

I'm waiting for anyone to post a vid of this working.  I got one issue with why I think it wouldn't work:
  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.
