Accuracy at long distance, consistant when used properly, looks awsome
Price, and needs higher quality paint
After owning a 98 custom for about 5 months with out doing any modifications whatsoever I decided to buy the best barrel for my needs.
Buying this barrel 2 hours before a match was too much time for instalation from the many rants of how much work they are, setup was a breeze everything just seemed to fit right into place, took me about 10 minuets for a complete correct install
Showing up to the feild with a shiney new flatline was an awsome feeling. Before the match some people there wanted to see if the flatline did what it was supposed to do, Firing some paint all the way across the feild left some in awe and others in jealousy.
Other test included accuracy, rate of fire w/o breaking paint. Accuracy was awsome with proper aim I could make a 12 inch group of 7 shots at about 90' (normal distance between teams in a match). Rate of fire the flatline if not installed correctly can suffer in this area but with my carefull attention to instalation to make sure it was tightly secured made this barrel shoot just as fast w/o breaking balls as any other barrel on a 98c at the feild, I was able to shoot as fast as my fingers could pull which was counted to be about at an average 5-6 balls per sec.
All in all, This barrel is THE choice for any woodsballer out there in dier need of greater accuracy and distance. With a little patience and 100's of balls later I have made the perfect match for the flatlines capability.
