Product Use:
Only tested3 of 14 people found this review helpful.

3 years
Products Used:
Tippman Custom 98 Flatline
Tippman A-5 Flatline
Core Sharc
Marker Setup: I currently use the A-5 Flatline; no accessories.
I bought the Cocker Flatline as an additional gun.
A regulator which lets you adjust the speed; otherwise you have take the back of the gun apart to adjust the speed.
Strengths: Easy to clean, fast rate of fire, looks cool
Weaknesses: Breaks balls in the barrell too easily.
Review: I own an A-5 which I like a lot, so I figured this gun would be a big step up; its not. It is very sensitive to speed and type of paint used. It needs expensive paint just to get by. I went and bought about 8 kinds of paint, and had some limited improvement with RPS and Evil. You have to shoot slow; if you shoot fast, you get a ball break, and after that, until you clean it, all the balls go out curved. It does clean very easily; you just pull a pin out, pull the bolt out, and the pull the squeegee through, and you are back in business in about 20 seconds.

I think the A-5 Flatline is a better gun, because it is not as persnickety, and its cheaper to boot.

I may update this review after I try this gun out in combat.
Conclusion: I think the A-5 has made the Cocker Flatline obsolete.
WGP should pull this gun from the market because it is a ball breaker, unless you turn the pressure down so far that a gun without a flatline barrell can shoot just as well.

You dont have to take the back of the gun apart, all you gotta do is to take out the cocking rod.

you don't need to shoot fast, just aim

I cannot see how this made the A-5 obsolete, if anything it does the vise versa.

rodregan you are a hypocrite. Why does it say under the review that you only tested this gun but further down you said you bought this gun. And who would ajust their velocity with a regulator rather than the velocity adjustor. The regulator is to have the proper opperating pressure going into yor gun yes it will affect your fps slightly however you dont chrone on your regulator.
