Paint For Flatline

ok I've been trying a few paints for a Flatline Barrel and I've had very limited success finding reliable paint. The best stuff so far has Been Anarchy Balls.

anyone have any recomendations for paintballs for the flatline system. I've herd Marbleizers are good but i would like to do some more reserch before i blow 60 bucks on a case

Always liked Blaze for flatline use.

Everyone has their own brand or story about what's good. Best advice I can give is to find something that works, but that you also don't mind paying for.

I'd say if you buy nice paint, the flatline shouldn't have a problem. As far as for what people say works, it really varies. Some had a good batch of a certain brand and continue to buy it while others got a bad batch and say it dosn't work.

I've found just about any paint over $45-$50 works great. Anything cheaper is problematic.

What I had found work the best are small bore paint. This smaller paint allows it to roll along the top of the barrel, like it is supposed too, and give it that nice solid backspin.

Take a look at some charts of average paint sizes and grab some cheap, small bore stuff.

that will work is some casses but the piant is supose to fit the barrel perfectly so you should put some paint in ur barrel and blow it out if it gts stuck ur barrels to big... comes out to fast its to small... its the barell that needs to be a perfict fit for the paint... for best accuracy and performence... if you just put smaller paint in a random barrell most likely it will be very un acurate and fly everywere

Have you ever owned a flatline?

What you said is true, but its true for normal barrels. There has been much debate on this forum in the past about things like this, and what I have said is true. Do a search. Small bore paint is more effective in the flatline. Period.
