DO NOT use cheap paint with this barrel. It isn't that the barrel will break the cheaper paint (Although the risk is higher), it is just the cheaper paint will not take true advantage of the barrels capability.
Strengths: Distance and Accuracy all in one
Weaknesses: None!!!
Review: A couple of months ago I went out and bought a Tippmann A-5. The awesome thing about the A-5 and all the other Tippmann products, is the stock barrel wasn't all that bad. Unlike some of the cheaper marker brands that are around. After a couple of months I was in search for something that would help with accuracy and distance. Well I didn't look too far, I took one look at the Flatline and was almost sold on it. I drove down to the paintball warehouse and started talking to the guy behind the desk (who also was a huge Tippmann fan). Well, all I heard from him was praises about this barrel. I took it home that day, installed it within 2 min. and started shooting with it. It surprised me so much, this barrel was such a strait-shooting barrel! One of the cool things about this barrel is that you can install it upside down. I know that you are thinking, "why in the world would I do that?". Well if you are playing on a course that has a lot of trenches, you can aim and shoot at the people that are laying down in the trenches. With it upside down, you can arc the shot so hard. Nothing is more demoralizing then getting shot in the head when you think that no shots can hit you.
Conclusion: This barrel is so adaptable no matter what playing style you are...Speedball, Sniper, or a Front-line Grunt. If you are looking into getting a after market barrel, buy this one!
