Distance and accuracy is what everyone wants out of there barrel.  Getting both is just asking to much.  All barrels will give you the same amount of distance no matter how long, with the exception of the Flatline and Apex.  This both put backspin on the ball causing it to "sail" farther.  The downside is you sacrifice accuracy.  Because these barrels put backspin on the ball, when it begins to lose velocity the spin becomes unstable and causes them to veer towards the end of their flight path. 

If youa ask me, I'd take accuracy over distance any day.

My experience is that one is not sacrificing accuracy for distance, but then I spend a LOT of time getting everything perfect on my marker.

But, the day you take that shot that is half again as far as any you would attempt with your ordinary barrel...with the guy so far away that he is not even ducking behind a bunker 'cause he KNOWS no one can reach him...and "pop" there is a great big splat on his goggles...

Then, as his curses waft across the battle field (who the heck shot me?) you'll think, "Man, I want to do that again," and you're hooked on that backspinning "inaccurate" barrel.

would anyone reccomend the lpk with an egrip/ape rage?

i like 3 round burst and i have the flatline. i want more accuracy so i am looking into other products that may help my a-5. some have said not to go lpk with e-triggers.

i am new to low pressure kits. their main purpose is to maintain a certain level of psi, right?

Listen dude throw that flatline garbage out. I and my whole team had one for woodsball and the accuracy was so bad we all bought JJ ceramics and swear by them. The flatline is poorly made and the barrel inside the shroud often comes loose after play. Distance is no advantage when u cant hit a person 20yrds in front of you accurately. Get a JJ ceramic and you will be so much happier.
