hmm sniper paint. Like paint that gets more distance than other paint? :dodgy:

I don't know what balls work best in flatline but if your stuck shooting walmart, shoot visable impact.

If you are using monster balls, that is probably why you are having problems. If you are in need of cheap paint, get visible impact from wally world. It's the best paint at walmart, I'd try to stay away from the monster balls and the jt tactical piant, they are misshapen, have a huge seam, hardly ever break, and jam you gun up real easy.

Marbs would be the best if you could afford them, but since you can't I'd go with what everyone else here is saying to do.

Visible Impact or Spyder Black Label. Switch out the Flatline for the Apex. It's much easier on the paint.

Ive used JT Tactical Camo Paintballs several times with my 98 Flatline and Ive never experienced any problems with them and they do Break on Impact, I also have used them when using the Apex and I get the same results as well.

i do not buy my paint from wall mart, i buy it from Joe's (formally GI Joe's) i have only had 2 ball break in my barrel out of like 5 cases. i am looking for quality , stuff that will not break in my flatline and I can not get a new barrel for awhile. does nelson nelsplat break in a flatline? if you have a flatline please take the time to tell me what you use. and average pricing would be nice too.
so a bush shot you?...

I used to purchase Afterburner paint from WalMart. I loved that stuff, it shot great and had a nice fill. However, I don't think they carry it anymore, its a shame too. Trust me, I have used my fair share of paint brands over the years, and I have always gone back to WalMart for the Afterburners.

You are suppose to use a smaller bore paint with the flatline. So, anything smaller should shoot decent without barrel breaks. Most of the RPS stuff is pretty small. You could try that if it's available to you.

If your price range is $45, Action Village has Marbs for not much more than that. Plus, if you're on a budget think of total investment. If you use Monster Balls now, you probably use three times as many balls as if you were using Marbs due to accuracy problems. Marbs may cost more per ball, but if you use less it all equals out in the end.

Cheapest paint I could find.

--The Polar Ice at the bottom isnt cheap but it is perfect for flatlines because of it's thick shell.

the paint that i've shot recently in your price range that i really like is Severe Atmosphere, Empire Bullets, and Origin Classic. of those the Severe paint is the best in my opinion. it is very similar to marbilizers in the feel of the shell and even the print on the shell(you can get like a dark gree color with black tiger sripes). they all run about 35 dollars a case online
