just wondering what knowledge any of my fellow paintballers have on paint that is good for the flatline. reviews have left me with more information, but little usable knowdledge. they seem to varried and do nto help at all. if you had particularly good experience with any one paint, please post it here. id like to try and avoid the big guess and test period. im hoping to onyl have to try 3-5 paint brands before selecting the best. suggestions would help

I am curious to know this too as my friend has an A-5 with a flatline and has tried paint that costs more than $50 and had massive breaks all day long. I'm sure that you need a paint with a thicker shell than most have. He tried All Star from RPG and it shredded in his barrel until he went back to the stock barrel.

It has more to do with the shell than the price. Because of the manner in which the Flatline puts the backspin on the ball, it needs to have a slightly thick shell. A lot of higher priced paintballs, so called "tourney paint" are designed to break easily (as to promote hits) and thus are bad for the Flatline shooter. A good thing to do is always read the box and look for anything that says thicker shell, but not quite a winter shell. Experiment with a bag at a time until you find something you like, that gives you that balance of range, accuraccy, and non-breakage.

I tend to like RecBall.

Well... so far, I've had good luck with Impacts and Recons... both by Gameface... found at Wally World (Wal-mart...)... both average about $20.00 per 1,000 balls...

Only had one break in the barrel a few weeks ago... tho' that could be attributed to it being a tad cold outside yet... but still... so far I've thrown about 2,000 rounds through the barrel with only the one break... not bad if you ask me...

PMI Marbalizer, Karnage Tear and Rip have all work extremely well for me. I very rarely have a break in the barrel, but always have the paintballs break on my targets.

I would say use the thickest shell you can get away with. Monster ball flies great out of Flatlines but the shell is so thick it hardly breaks on a human target like it should. Try mid-grade paint. It usually has a thicker shell than tourney grade but will break better on target than the cheap stuff.

Has anyone tried Hemorrhage from Nelson? I like it in my 'Mags but I don't know if my friend tried it in his Flatline.

I've had horrible experience with BE Monster Balls. I bought a case and 2/3 of the paint was severely out of shape, with terrible performance. I prefer Gameface paint, and Impacts have worked very well in my friend's flatline. The thick but not too thick shell didn't break in the barrel, but didn't bounce downrange and the thick fill helped control the backspin. The only paint I've truly been happy with so far. Delta 9 out.

The Tippmann people themselves said marbalizer and draxxus blaze is the best and i tend to prefer NEL-splat by Nelson its pretty good and rather cheap.

Impact Paintballs made by Game Face (Walmart Balls) work well as StickJock said, but if your looking for mid grade paint check out Diablo Heat and Crush, I have had minimal breaks with these Balls. Diablo paintballs are almost always thicker than other brands that i have tried.
