  • The Tippmann flatline barrel has to be about the best barrel system made for paintball
  • This is amazing because it will greatly increase your skill during the game, you'll be hitting people left and right when they aren't even able to get their paint to your feet
  • If you're annoyed by the very small range in paintball due to the size and power of a paintball gun and the paintball ammunition, then the flatline barrel is definitely something you could look into
  • I love this because the ball will go around 2 to 3 times as far as with your typical stock or even length-upgraded paintball

      The Tippmann flatline barrel has to be about the best barrel system made for paintball. This barrel will greatly increase the performance of the Tippmann 98 Custom paintball marker, or the A-5 paintball marker. Both are excellent guns, and are made even further better by the addition of this gravity-breaking barrel.

      RANGE Range is very important when it comes to paintball. You can easily move around based on the range of your opponents. If you are outside the range of your opponents, it’s extremely easy to move and gain a position over them. If you have a flatline, you have a great range advantage over their whole team, because you will have a much greater range-you can shoot at a much further distance than they can. This is great because you can stay in the back or outskirts of an indoor or outdoor, speedball or woods ball course; and just dominate. You will actually get hits from one end of a small to medium sized course all the way to the other! This is amazing because it will greatly increase your skill during the game,


      you’ll be hitting people left and right when they aren’t even able to get their paint to your feet. If you’re annoyed by the very small range in paintball due to the size and power of a paintball gun and the paintball ammunition, then the flatline barrel is definitely something you could look into; it’ll make paintball much closer to being similar to shooting a real, live gun. This is because of the fact that each and every paintball travels in a straight line.

      PATENTED TECHNOLOGY This means that you won’t ever be able to find another barrel that performs similar to this one! Tippmann is the only manufacturer of a barrel that will increase the range in such a way that the flatline barrel does. The barrel is actually nowhere near straight. The barrel itself, not including the plastic piece that holds the barrel to the marker and straight, is extremely curved. The barrel appears to be bent, actually. The engineers of this product have eliminated the need to account for an arch in your paintballs now, by putting an arch in the ...


      • barrel. The lining of the flatline barrel is also sand blasted. The entire inside of the Tippmann flatline barrel feels like a very fine grain sand paper. This is what cause more friction to be put on the ball, which gives the ball an odd backwards spin. This is what makes the ball cut through the air at a much more efficient and accurate level. I love this because the ball will go around 2 to 3 times as far as with your typical stock or even length-upgraded paintball.

        WEIGHT Some people complain that the weight of the barrel is much greater than the weight of the stock barrel, because of its bigger and more bulky look. Truth is, the barrel hardly weighs anything more than the stock barrel. The plastic parts which attach the barrel itself to the gun and align it properly weight nearly nothing, and the barrel itself is just about as light as the stock barrel; even when you take into account the fact that the barrel inside the plastic piece is longer than the stock barrel is in most

        cases. Don’t worry about weighing your gun down with the addition of this barrel, you’ll hardly notice a difference! Most of the weight of the gun comes from the hopper (assuming it’s full of paint) and the air supply (smaller or larger based on personal preference).

        APPEARANCE The gun really looks awesome with the flatline barrel upgrade. A lot of people are greatly interested in making their gun look much more real, and look more like an actual fire arm as if someone in the military would use. I personally love the way the flatline barrel makes the gun look. It doesn’t prevent the user of the gun from being to upgrade to a different type of gun, either, because it already looks like most of the current real gun upgrades. It makes it look quite similar to an ak47 rifle, even quite similar to the m4a1 or the mp5. They’re all great guns, and are very realistic and modern warfare guns. You can always remove the barrel at anytime, quite easily, if you’re more interested in role playing and the barrel somehow gets in the way of this game play style.

    Only the salesperson can help you in this case. There isn’t any guarantee that flatline barrel will fit on your PCS. It depends on various factors, including availability of right size barrel. Consult Tippmann salesperson for help.
