I just got the flatline for a 98c.

I got it on with no trouble, I hardly read the instructions, I did not even have to adjust it once.
I went out and shot some crappy brass eagle tourny stuff I got at a garage sale. Hit a telephone pole 35 yards away 8 out of 10 shots, not bad.
The ball knuckled around a little but the balls had large seam and a few dents.. it was BE.
I did not have a single break out of 200.

I was pleased with it...duh

Forgot to say I shot as fast as my stock gun can, and it did just fine.

YAY! B) Someone who isn't complaining about their flatline! It seems like everyone writes about how terrible their flatline was, even though they didn't worry about putting it on straight, or forgot to take the paint quality into account. I'm glad you were satisfied, it was refreshing. :)

Love mine .... after cleaning my gun the other day I took it out and shot off a hopper worth of paint. Paint had been in the heat and humidity so I didn't get the accuracy I had the other time I shot it a few weeks ago. But I know it was the paint and it was still accurate enough for me.

Yea I'm sick of ppl bashing Flatlines because they are still shooting S***ty paint out of it. I used to shoot factory seconds no problem with my Bigshot, but I guess I'll have to upgrade to suit the flatline. PMI makes a "premium" paint called Super Swirl (not too expensive, either at $45) I know it's a step down from marbys, but is it good enough to shoot with a flatline?

I shoot mostly super-swirlz through my A-5 flatline, and my 98 Flatline. My 98 has had a few break, but then again I have used my 98 Ftln in a questionable manner before.

How can you make fun of a flatline I mean considering I got mine from ebay BRAND NEW for 15 dollars doesn't mean it's a bad barrel

Great post in my opinion. Ive had mine some months now and i love it to death. My brand new t98c with flat at 260fps shoots farther then my upped backup 98c with a stiffi @ 300. The ball drops earlier with the stiffi as well. Big up to all us flatline lovers :P . I do find that the A5 with flat does not get the same reach that mine does.

Super swirls are fine to shoot out of it. If im playin rec ball i use scorch from walmart and they work great. Basically any ball that is small in bore size, non oily, and small seam will work great

If you play sniper only, utilize a 12- 14 inch. If your into playing multiple roles, utilize the 8.5inch flatline for A-5, just choose your paint carefully, some brands of paint a a brittle shell. out of 1500 rounds ive had one ball break, but i think it was due to me holding onto the response trigger unloading a whole hopper at once. all i had to do to clean the barrel was loosen off , yes loosen off 2 hex boltsthe barrel pulls off quicker than a tight threaded barrel run the squeggee through and screw back on tighten 2 hex it was done. At long range the 8.5 inch flatline usually hooks to the right a bit but the ball floats its ther than its in your face. most barrels cant shoot as long and far as a flatline. 100 yards for an average 12-14 inch. flatline 8.5inch 150yards. its not highly accurate at that range but other barrels cant even think of shoting that far. the other thing with a 8.5 inch flatline is use air, and make slight adjustments to the barrel either turning it slightly left or right before you tighten it down. that way you can use the slight hook it has developed over 100yards. Have fun i do own a 14 inch dye excel its an accurate barrel and i love it, but it sucks when your trying to do snap shots or crawl through the bush it catches everything and if somone sneaks up on you you cant turn around very fast cause the barrel cathes every twig ther is. so if your a 100% dedicated sniper go for the long barrel to poke through the under brush and carry a side arm, if you like to mix it up a bit and utilize the A-5 8.5 inch flatline its more accurate as hell compared to other barrels under 12 inchs, and it looks sweet.
