Apex barrell

Has anyone seen the apex barrell in action or have one? does it really curve around corners? Just saw it today in a magazine and it looked kinda interesting.

from what i've heard, it does work like that, but you definitely wont make a heck of a lot of friends using a barrel like that... a lot of people dont like them because they just add to the fact that people are using less skill to play the game, and relying more on expensive equipment...

Its basically a flatline barrel that can shoot off to the side.

I think that by the time you dile(sp) it in to hit the person around the bunker that they would notice that the balls are curving towards them, and that they sawe u pre-game with the apex so they would move. Wouldnt get one.

Yes this gun really works. I like to use the dive bomb setting a lot. Set the barrel to like 6 or 7 for the best shots. The only problem is that it takes a few shots to get the desired shot you want.

doesnt work too well in the real world
takes too long to "dial in"
and for that price you can get a barrel kit anyway

The apex works pretty good but like people said it isnt reallly practical to use the dial in fast paced games... The apex does however give you a better range. you can shoot much further with an apex

Why don't people like APEX Barrels and do Apex barrels make your marker shoot slower?

no flatline has the same range
the ball might go farther but it wont break
so they both have the same effective range

^^^^ Not true. I have a flatline and it works awesome. Yes sometimes if you shoot someone from a distance it wont break but that doesnt seem to happen to much. What people have to remember is if your shooting 275fps your shooting 275. There is no barrell that actually slows down your speed. now if you get a flatline or something like a 16-18" Barrell you are shooting further but your ball will slow down the further it goes. So it wont hit someone at 275.

it slows down after it passes a normal barrels effective range
theres backspin on the ball so it tends to float at the end

dude... ever hear of wind resistance? it doesnt matter if the ball leaves your barrel at 275 fps... wind resistance will slow the paintball down regardless of whether it's spinning or not... meaning your effective range will ultimately be very similar as compared to a normal barrel.. which means yes, the backspin might add a little distance, but the farther that ball travels, and the more wind resistance is applied to the ball, the less of a chance that ball has of breaking due to the reduced speed...

axually, it'd be kinda nice, as you dial it in lane and have the ball bunker them lol my friend uses a flatty and i don't care what people say, it increases the range. He's a newer player and i haven't been hit by him so idk how far u can be away and have it pop.

you obviosly do not know anything
having a longer barrel does not increase your range
it tightens the shot grouping
dont say anything if you dont know what you are talking about

the flatline barrel WILL increase your range by a bit...a 16 or 18 inch barrel will just suck up more air/co2. you really don't need anything more than a 12' butt the flatline is a 14'...

One I am not talking about wind resistance and all of the other circumstances that can slow a paintball down, because obviously there are lots of them. I am talking about the barrell period. The question was do some barrells make your marker shoot slower. 2) I do believe that if you get a longer aftermarket barrell they are marketed to shoot more accurate and further. http://www.pntball.com/storefrontpro...369&i=35098386

Not entirly true... The flatline barrel gains extra distance by putting backspin on the ball durring this back spin the paintball loses some of its velocity but it will still fly farther than a paintball traveling at a speed of 15-30 fps faster. The apex barrel system works on the same pricipal (putting back-spin or front-spin on the ball).

you used a 16" barrel as your example... 16" isnt in the "too long" range yet... too long would be in the range of 18-24" in which case yes, the barrel will slow your ball down meaning you'll have to up the velocity, meaning you'll use WAY more co2 than you have to, to shoot paint out of an ineffective barrel due to the fact that it'll shoot the same as any other barrel, you just look dumber because your barrel is as tall as you...
