Play it safe and protect your barrel with the good-looking Special Ops Flatline Barrel Condom. It may not be ribbed for pleasure but it's made of super tough nylon with a reinforced end and an adjustable strap so you can fit it on just about any gun with a flatline barrel. The Special Ops Logo is displayed on both sides. (Makes any gun look good!)
Made specifically to fit the Tippmann Flatline barrels.
The Special Ops Paintball Flatline Barrel Condom is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Easy to slide over barrel - cuz it's so BIG
No cord-clip --> just make a knot
I got mine in SAFETY ORANGE to keep the idiots from shooting at me while walking back the field after getting shot. I figured, if they can't figure out that someone leisurely strolling through the woods with gun and/or hand in the air is out, then a bright barrel bag on my marker might give them another hint.
This thing is HUGE. More like a barrel DIAPER than condom. I'm gonna have someone sow another line of stitching on it to make it smaller.
So on the one hand it looks kinda weird on the marker, on the other hand it's very fast to attach and take off where the original tippmann cover took some finesse to slip onto a flatline.
It doesn't have a cord clip, but I'm using the one from my Tippmann cover or you can just make a knot.
It's alright... Price is ok... as good as others but you get nicer patterns to pick from...

The heavy nylon piece on the inside does not cover the whole end
I got this condom in the orange, which is very visible. I don't really know why anyone would want a camo pattern, it's normally in your pocket, and if you drop it, it's really hard to find in camo, but orange is a different story.
The heavy black nylon at the bottom of the condom does not cover the whole bottom, if you have a normal size barrel, it has a tendency to sit in the corners, which are not protected by the heavy fabric. I worry that you could shoot through this part, which is only the light outer fabric. To correct this problem, I turned it inside out and sewed a line that channeled the barrel to the heavy fabric, then turned it back out. I don't have a flatline, but for my normal barrels, it works great.
I got a barrel condom from SO in their Xmas stocking, it was different. Shorter, had a cool splat pattern dyed into it, and had the heavy fabric all along the inside. It also came with a nice slider that could clip open, then tighten when you squeezed two tabs. This one fit over my T-8 perfectly, I liked it more than this, but it is not for sale on it's own.
Not the best, but if you have a flatline/apex, it's one of your only choices.

-Needs a cordlock
I'm not sure about other fields, but my home field in Florida now requires a barrel condom, plugs are no longer accepted. Something about the plug can turn into a projectile. Anyway, I got this condom because I have a flatline, plain and simple. It works, its great; there is nothing better than a piece of equipment that does what it is supposed to do.
Of all the barrel condoms, this one is huge so its easy to slide on any barrel.

a-5, opsgear operator 16" barrel, opsgear g36 stock, special ops a5a2 forgrip, simmons red dot sight, double trigger, and a tac cap.
Fits perfectly, camo pattern.
If you loose it in the woods, you probubly won't find it.
I got this even though I don't have a flatline. Who cares. Anyway, It is a good barrel condom. I really like the camo pattern. It makes it look awsome. It has a strechy nylon cable that you can wrap around ethier your hopper(which I prefer), or your handlegrip, or anything else that you can think of.
