I'm thinking of replacing my flatline with an apex barrel but I don't know if I should or not? Thanks for any suggestions.

I can say that after owning both barrels the Apex is alot better than the Flatline. IMO. It isn't as paint picky, it's easier to take off, and it shoots in 4 different "modes".

Love my Flatty but the Apex out performs it. I've used my Apex all season and haven't seen the need to switch to any other kit.

Apex barrel users are the same as wipers in my book of cheaters. Lobbing shots behind bunkers ruins the game.

Wow we're gonna need a fire truck too put out all the flames that this will start but honestly man if lobbing a shot is cheating then a grenade is cheating because basically all you are doing is "lobbing" a bigg shot.

Would this be a bad time to mention how I load my RPG with 100 paintballs & fire it from my ambush spot?

So you enjoy getting hit behind a bunker by a curveball? What is the point of having bunkers at all with apex barrels on the field? Grenades exist in reality hence is a part of the game. Most people consider this a "war game" but choose to use different terms than that. What gun in reality can shoot curve ball around a wall? A grenade can be thrown but that is a whole different ballgame guys. Bottom line is the more apex barrels on the field we might as well just play civil war style from now on.

No that doesn't bother me at all. Intentionally shooting curveballs from your cheater barrel does bother me.

So you've never used an Apex have you?
The paintball isn't going to make a 90 degree turn as soon as it passes your bunker.
The flight path of the ball is a gradual curve.

Personally, I can't stand the way the standard Apex looks. Then comes the AK and M-16 ones. Now I'm having trouble not getting it.

My only question, can I attach rails to the M-16 shroud on the "Apex-16"?
I love my rails :panzer:

I want to make sure I'm getting this straight, so because the ball curves, its cheating? What if I longball you with extreme arc on a standard barrel and hit the top of your head while you're behind a bunker? How would that be any different than me using an apex? What about the flatline guys who know how to turn their gun sideways and shoot it so that it curves just like an apex? Or should we ban barrel breaks too since they can make a ball curve? You're talking about paintball man, whether is up and down, or sideways, the flight path is curved, Apex or no Apex. Get tighter to your bunker and frickin deal with it... The Apex doesn't magically make a ball home in on you, and its first shot accuracy in extreme curveball mode is anything but dead-on, so frankly, if you get hit behind a bunker its because you sat there way too loose behind it while some guy took his time to walk his shots in and get you. 90% of people who own an apex never even turn the tip sideways, which is the only way to curve the shot sideways, so I really don't understand what you're FEMALE DOGing about... I guess we should cancel all paintball play on days with heavy winds because it might make a ball curve :blink:
