Lately Iv'e been having a couple of problems with my Flatline for my 98. I love the Flatline when it comes to a tourney game, but I feel it is useless in the woods with a bunch of my friends. As soon as I chop one ball I am screwed the rest of the game. I was wondering if I should get a jj ceramic to play with my friends, and save the flatline for scenario tourneys. Any Thoughts?

i love my flatline

sometimes it helps to have an extra barrel

but when it comes to cleaning it i got a free foldable straight shot from VL
i love it and it fits down the flatline too(even with the curve)

I use a squeegie and carry one every time I get on a field, but still after that first break the flatline keeps messin up. And sometimes I feel it is too loud aswell. How can I be a sniper if evryone knows where I'm at?

sound doesnt always give away ur position..if ur in the middle of the woods they wont no which way its coming from..sound can sometimes be an advangate...and just use a good squeege theres no use to spend 60 bucks for a j and j ceramics

I know sound can be an advantage, but most of the time I play in small woods with a small number of guys. As soon as I shoot they know where I am, and if I don't have support I'm screwed. Also, I can get a j and j for 35 bucks. So the question still arrives, what's better, a 35 dollar j&j or 110 dollar flatline?

Get the ceramic. It will be worth it. I have used both, and prefer the ceramic.

I typically use scorch in my ceramic just because of availability and as long as it is fresh, it works well. Pretty much anything medium bore will work good.

I love my flatline and use it ALMOST exclusively, but I also have a J&J and in my Opinion, it performs as well or better than barrels in the $60 - $75 dollar range. It's def a solid performer.

J&J is a great barrel, but watch your bore size on your paint, especially if you're playing in the wintertime...I like to use crap paint when we're just playing outback, and the J&J doesn't like it.

i have a 14'' custom thunderpig and its great i payed 10bucks for it (got it from a friend who made a big mistake selling it) and it shoots as far/acurate as my friends flatline...its perfect only broke a ball once...and it was because i was playiin in the rain and my paint got wet and melted on to another ball so when i shot it one was in the barrell and the other was in the feedneck so they both broke :D

I have shot both. I gave away my Flatline ( to my brother ) and Switched to a J&J ceramic. I like to shoot Marbs the best but have had no problem with any RPS paint. I don't have any luck with Blaze tho. That stuff breaks all the time. I have recently upgraded to a J&J ceramic Edge kit. Used it in one game ( Oklahoma D-Day ) and it worked as well as my original J&J.


Peace
