Review: I was a sucker when I bought this barrel, I ended up paying 100$Cnd for a barrel that is anything but high standard. Thing is with this barrel (if your considering buying one) is the barrel itself is curved (straight, curved up then strainght again) which in turn makes it look ugly, but is supposed to add range and accuracy (100 feet). To keep the barrel from showing it's inner grotesque design they put a simple shroud over that probably makes it go from 80 to 100$'s but is still not worth it regardless. At first the barrel worked fine, unfortunately that changed over time, it gradually became less and less accurate (this is not on the account of bad aim because I use a red dot sight and can see the balls curving off frequently.) until the point where my friend and I played civil war 1 on 1 dual style. Basically we stood 100 feet apart (appox) and took turns firing at each other and each round we took a step forward. I was using good quality procaps, while he was using crappy thin shell dimple paint (not sure what brand) and his gun was just as accurate as mine. Throughout the game I saw my paint not frequently but consistently curving and missing, I swear to god I fired from 50ft (approx) and saw my shot curve off and miss 10ft in front. I maintened my barrel as the manufacturers recommended but I checked the interior only to find minor scratches and smooth interior (interior is supposed to be rough). I contacted Tippmann and they told me I would need to get resurfaced and that they do it for free, however you must pay for S + H and I'd probably not get it back for 3 weeks (at least). This was all in a 3 month period (I think), The curve design on this barrel is unreliable, and there are many better barrels out there, such as the the apex or Lapco, which do not require resurfacing, specific paint and specific velocity (275 fts), for the most part what good is range if not accurate? Feel free to critique my critique if you've achieved optimal performance with the F-line but there are still better barrels for lower prices out there.
Conclusion: Don't get it, Picky, unreliable way too pricy for lack of quality.
