I have a 16 inch twister barrel and it working great. Depends on the type of look you are going for.

14" barrel will be perfect for you.

With the Flatline barrel, once it goes a certain distance, the ball slows down to the point where the ball won't bust. So it's pointless...

16" barrels are too big for woodsball...the only reason some tournament players have them is to move the bunker out of the way when they are snap shooting.

Good point so far I have not had a problem using my 16" for woodsball.

Not problematic...just hefty. At least when I played woodsball with my tippmann and 16 incher, it got annoying with it being so long.

I have the Apex on my MR2 and have seen flatlines in action on several tippmans, i personally like the extra STRAIGHT distance that the apex or flatlines provide, but it depends if you play woodsball or not. Also, there is NO difference between the accuracy of a 14" or a 16" barrel (minus of course barrel brand). i had a 14" Lapco and a 16" barrel before and i like Apex best, THEN a 14", but i would not use a 16, its gets in the way whether you think it will or not.

14" J&J Ceramic ftw.

Flatlines are garbage and the apex is just a glorified flatline. Get the J&J and with the money you save get an expansion chamber and you will notice a BIG difference.

defenitally go with the J&J 14", flatlines are way overpriced and are more trouble than they are worth
