Why are A5 flatline barrels difficult to find?

Hey guys, i've been a longtime speedball player and want to get into the woodsball side of the game as well.

I was looking to outfit an a5 with a flatline barrel but im seeing they are getting pretty hard to find. is there a reason for this? is there something better out?

Thanks!

Na, for woodsball they're amazing. I use one of those for woodsball, but then switch to my J&J Ceramic for speedball.

And Idk why they're hard to find, I guess end of production maybe?

But you can still find them on eBay or on here. Here's one for a GREAT price.

Try around eBay, ANSGear, Hustle...

Or get an APEX. Same thing really except you can change your trajectory.

Personally, I prefer just a regular 16" JJ. Keeps things simple.

It's because they are paint picky pieces of ****. Get an apex or apex 2...you will be much happier.

Tonycon is right. The flatline was an extremely picky barrel to match with paint; the Apex outclassed the flatline in every aspect especially interns of paint compatibility.

I have all of the backspin barrels, they all work great if you use them right (most people run their flatline with too fast of an fps, you want it to be 270fps max on the flatlines, and buy gloss shelled paint)

The flatline with an apex on it is rather fun!... I have video on my channel doing that, crazy dive bombs at 60 feet!

Here is a video I just put on my channels, with a j&j barrel and I tape modded an Apex 2 to the end... (set the apex 2 at 4 clicks) and run 280fps.

Check it out, FIRST shot nailed the guy!

They have them at my local shop but go with the apex like everyone else said. i amaze many people with how level and accurate my shots get. and you can curve your shots for fun.

Apex2 is by far the better choice. I have the deadlywind carbon fiber sleeve on mine. Looks sweet !

The most fun barrel is the Monsterspin, which is a flatline with a Apex 2 tape modded on the end... You can dive bomb and shoot around bunkers at 60 feet. It is insane! Here is some video of it in action.

Here is what you can do with it shooting "flat".

http://blip.tv/trailsofdoom/monsters...atline-6344614

VERY fun and it blows peoples mind when you tag them BEHIND a bunker!
