numerous barrels from Freak's to the Stock barrel
nice and Smooth
looks very nice (imo)
Cleans it's self
no o-ring so it comes loose a lot
This barrel is every thing the budget concise rec baller could want. It's extremely light weight and very smooth thanks to a Teflon coating which means that it will clean its self more times than not. Unfortunately it's only one piece which itsn't too bad considering its a very nice one-pice. the biggest problem I have with it is it always seems to be coming loose epically when I go up in BPS and it's not good to have to reach up to tighten your barrel during a game. I know some one who has the J&J 2 piece and he has the exact same problem so it may just be inherent in all J&J barrels.
Great barrel on a budget but it's still almost nothing compared to some of the nicer, higher end barrels out there so it gets a 7
7 out of 10

I was thinking about getting a flatline for my tippman 98 custom. I havent used either on any gun before so I was wondering...should I save my money and buy the ceramic or get the flatline. I was earlier thinking about getting a flatline but have heard some things about it that make me think I don't want it. What do u think?
I think that there are much better barrels to spend your money on. in my experience flat-lines are useless. Sure you get a little longer distance but the accuracy get thrown off way too much for it to make a difference. There is a reason why when they tried to sell the flat-lines on tournament level guns it bombed. your much better off with a ceramic or a boomstick.
Yeah, infact the only time you should want a 2 peice is if it is a kit with a back and about 4 different bored fronts. Other than that, one pieces in my opinion are actually better. For example, everyone recommends the custom products one peice over the two piece.

Your experience must involve laziness and ignorance. The flatline is not useless. It just involves a little more work and knowledge to operate properly. If you like things easy, I'm sure the ceramic will do just fine. If you don't mind working with your barrel, the flatline will do even better.
