if you dont mind the money, and you play mixed positions i would buy the flatline. On the other hand, if your a sniper DEFINETLY get the 14"
The sig limit is set at 160 px. Your image was 180 px.

I Wouldn't Suggest A Flatline For A Sniper Position, It Tends Not To Be As Accurate As Others. Your Best Bet Is A Standard Barrel. Don't Get Me Wrong I Love The Flatline I Just Haven't Made The Time To Get One And Tinker With It To Get It Right.

um, it would be nice if you picked a callsign not already taken...by about 15 years.

Thanks! I know how cool the name is...but, in the interests of not confusing anyone...

It is up to you.

Take care!

I currently have a Tippmann 98 Pro E with a flatline and it is almost as accurate as my naughty dog timmy with barrel/paint matching.

For the A5, if you want to be a sniper, the armson stealth in 14" is a well respected choice, the boomstick or hammerheads in 14" are excellent as well. I recently sold my a5 and bought the 98...I never quite got along with the cyclone on the a5.

take care,

The flatline is a good barrel system, but is a little pricey. I have a 14" dye xcel barrel and hasn't failed yet on my model 98. I still get good accuracy and all for a straight barrel.
