Barrels:
Not a flatline!! Short barrels are ok, for short range guns.
Strengths: Paint's cheap. $40 for 2000. The fill is great (pink is, anyway). Very bright, thick, solid and nasty. Shell is right thickness; you can drop oine from a decent hight and not break it, but it pops on target.
Weaknesses: These paintballs aren't really balls. They're strange, oblong/oval/egg/tumors. The seam between the two halfs on the shells is really poorly shaped. You can see a huge dip all the way around, as opposed to Marbs which has very smooth seams. The balls curve like a mother. Terrible paint for a Flatline. You get tons of breaks, and the amount of curve you get will actually make you laugh. I got about a 15 foot curve at 30 feet. Goes two feet out, one foot right. No bueno.
Conclusion: You get what you pay for. I figured an internet deal would be nice, but I guess if you have a picky barrel, like a Flatline, you've just gotta suck it up and fork out the cash for Marbs or RPS Premiums. Go ahead and shoot it out of a Talon or little stock gun, but any decent gun deserves decent paint.

These balls usually are accurate, but I have found that my friends who own Tippmans with stock barrels have a lot of curve using any balls unless you have a good clean barrel, and your velocity set right....so if your gun curves on all paint please do not write a bad review...
