Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
Tippman flatline barrel system and tippmann 8" stock barrel
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98C with 14" werks custom barrel and electronic hopper
Recommended
Paintballs:
Jt-Usa Elites or Pmi- Premiums
Strengths: Breaks down sound, looks great, and very light and maneuverable
Weaknesses: Gives off glare but that doesn't matter down in the woods
Review: This barrel is one that i totally recomend. I bought mine for 60$ about 2-3months ago and have only broken about 10balls per 10000 that i shoot. I recomend the Pmi Premiums because i have only broken maybe 2 of them and have shot over 1000. This barrel is better than the flatline barrel because with this barrel you can shoot faster more effectively with out breaking a ball. Also if you do break a ball it is very easy to clean your barrel out/
Conclusion: If you arew debating between this and a flatline i recomend this for trigger happy people and a flatline for people who are interested in sniping
Rating:
10 out of 10

Not really a tippmann master if you have to ask those questions, but that takes time I suppose.

Yes, this barrel will work with a 98 custom. The only difference between the 98 and the 98 C is that inside the recievers of a 98 C the space for the response trigger is already bored out. That's it, unless you have one of the newer 98 C's with the slightly different threading.

I have not put a flatline on my gun because I normally play on smaller fields and have not problem getting up close to make the tag. But the reviews for it are pretty good if I remember right, so if that's what you want go for it.

1st off why would glare not matter in woodsball? and flatline barrels don't break paint any more then any other barrel, you probably screw the bolts to tight in where the barrel goes in.

your right on the glare thing, but the flatline barrels tend to break more paint because the inside of the barrel is courser to make the ball spin more. so, if you have thin shelled paint then they will break.
