actually, i was going to, but i live in kind of a "condensed" neighborhood, so i couldnt get accurate readings of range. also, i ran out of air.

anyway, my grandparents have 16 acres of land, and we go there like every weekend, so when we make our next visit, i promise more accurate results, including stats for the J&J compared to the "straightline barrel." just be patient.

No kidding. If it works as well as you suggested, get a patent or copyright or sumthing.

It takes years to patent something.

And if its that easy for someone to do it, why would they buy it.

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

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.

Hello, all i want to add to your conversation on the "worst idea of the year" is that has anyone ever wondered way you pay so much for a Flatline? 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!!

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?

..
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.

now im just speaken from personal opinion, but i dont really wanna sit around sticken tape in my barrel when i could be playing paintball, i personaly squeegy after every game, i know most people dont do it that much, but they do it several times in the day, and i wouldnt wanna re-apply it 3 times in 1 day

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...
