ronald_a89 Wednesday, December 6th, 2006
Period of
Product Use:
3 months
1 year
Products Used:
Tippmann stock barrel
J&J Ceramic 14"
Empire Twister 14"
Marker Setup: Just like the picture above+tank
Expensive and big bore balls
Strengths: Range if you don't break ball
Weaknesses: Loud !!!
Paint picky !!!
Breake balls easily
Very Hard to clean
Internal scratchs easily
Review: This gun will give you all that Tippmann advertised if you:

1) Use good, "expensive", and big size balls
2) Use highly consistent and "expensive" tank and regulator, to comply with Tippmann own recommendation speed, 270-280 FPS.

If you are a new player who want to have a better accuracy and a descent range, try to get other inexpensive barrels such as J&J 14" ceramic or 14" Empire twister barrel. If you concern more about money, get Tippmann sniper barrel. It is cheaper than J&J or Empire by about $10.

Another downside of this barrel is that it is hard to clean. If you break a paint in this barrel during a combat, you won't be able to clean it fast. If you can't clean it, the next ball come out of this barrel wil no longer have a descent accuracy; since this barrel relies heavily on its "engineered surface and shape" of its internal.
Conclusion: This barrel is a pain in the @$$. Save $50 and get a better accuracy with other barrels. Stock barrel somewhat is more accurate that this Flatline barrel
7 out of 10
