Only tested it with two kinds of paint, and I was amazed with both. Just don't get really really bad paint, or really really old paint.

Review: Ok, my neighbor got this just today,(hence the "only tested" selection) First off, hes a tippmann guy, and i'm a spyder guy, so, theres that natural "my gun is better, yours blows" thing going on all the time. But, he's not very mechanically inclined, so I offered to install it for him. Now, I'm fairly mechanically inclined, I can completely disasemble (I mean, completely, valve body and everything) and it took me nearly an hour to put the thing on.

I don't know if this happens with all flatlines, but the adapter on this one was slightly defective, so I had to take the gun apart four times, to finally figure out that the threads were a little messed up. So I fixed that, put the ting on, and continued, that probably sapped about 20 minutes of time. (seeing as how tippmanns are a pain in the butt to dissasemble) The rest was fairly easy. I had wondered at first how the heck a barrel can be curved, and not break every ball that shoots through it, and I still don't know, but now I know it doesn't break them. Just read the instructions, and your set basically.


Now for the review part.

We then just about ran to my backyard (all 1.6 acres of it) and shot some trees and cacti and stuff. I noticed it was shooting a bit to the left, so I turned the barrel ever so slightly to the right, I got it in two adjustments, in total I probably turned it at the most, a millimeter. And at 100 yards, that was moving the ball had moved about 20 feet, so be very very subtle in your adjustments.

We then shot it at some stones (about 2'X2') from maybe 100 yards, and to my amazment, they were hitting it, and it was windy. Without wind, I'm sure that at a hundred yards (thats 300 feet people) and the balls would hit in a very tight group.

One ball broke out of about a hundred, but the paint we were using was atleast two months old, most likely four, knowing him. So that is understandable. Once it broke though, accuracy was down the drain, it would not shoot straight farther than 20 feet.

This is easily fixed by using the included squegee, five seconds later, you have a good-as-new barrel.

The really weird thing is, when you shoot it and (try) to watch the ball, it looks like its flying up, its going dead flat, but still, when you shoot a paintball gun and trace the ball, you always expect it to go down. And it flew flat for atleast 150 yards, even then, it only dropped slightly. I would say, as far as accuracy, its the closest you are going to get to a real gun. This barrel truely makes a 98C a sniper gun, add a stock, and maybe a red dot sight, and you'll be the only guy that never gets shot.



ok, to the meat.

---PROS---
Insane distance
Insane accuracy
Insanely cool looking (looks like an AR-15, even more so with the stock)
Insanely black

---CONS---
Insanely expensive
Insanely inaccurate after a ball breaks
Plastic shroud seems a little cheap
Makes the gun a tad long, not so great for speed ball or when your in tiny bunkers. But hey, our military does it with guns that are even bigger and heavy-er (more heavy?), totally not a deal breaker though.
Conclusion: Buy it, you will not be displeased. Infact, I even want a tippmann now. Maybe they'll make a flatline for the C3 (hopefully when they make the C3 semi-auto)
