The patented Tippmann Flatline barrel system puts unique backspin on the paintball, which allows for up to 100 feet of increased distance. The Flatline barrel system still maintains paintball breaks on impact. Flatline Technology produces a level and accurate shot which carries 50% farther than traditional paintball barrels. By minimizing the upward trajectory of the paintball and increasing accuracy, the paintball player will effectively increase the amount of possible targets, many of which would normally be out of range. And now with the 98 Flatline barrels being threaded, no more wasting time trying to install it. Let me just make this even more clear - all you have to do now is screw on the barrel! In the past, to install a Flatline barrel was about a 10-minute production! In addition, the new tactical Weaver rails allow you to beef up your gun even more, not that this bad boy isn't already enough. Add a red dot sight, projection beam laser, tactical flashlight, or even night vision! Any tactical accessories that you'd like to add can be mounted right on to your new Flatline.

Hustle Paintball Note - For optimal performance and backspin, use a slightly loose paintball to bore match to allow the paintball to correctly travel down the barrel of your Flatline system.
Love this barrel. The range alone adds a tactical benefit to any game you play. Although accuracy is slightly reduced at long distances, the intimidation factor is superb. It allows you to make the opponent keep their heads while you or your team move up and gain the advantage. Highly recommend you use higher grade paint, because the backspin will occasionally bust balls that are too brittle. An excellent choice for any Tippmann marker.
I am not a fan of this barrel for this particular gun. While it did shoot far every time, the accuracy was terrible and it broke a ton of balls in the barrel. I tried all shorts of different brands of paint in all price ranges and the result was pretty consistently bad. I tried dialing my gun down hoping that would help, but to no avail. It is easy to install for sure, but was so wildly inaccurate at even 50 feet that I sold mine and went with a traditional straight barrel. The Flatline may work better on other guns, but on the 98, save your money for other upgrades.
Is this barrel come with the Extra Picatinny rail for non Platinum Series 98 guns???
As a long time player, I realize that a barrel is one of the first upgrades that we usually buy. I got this to help my son out and I have to say that this is well worth it. I love the way that this is pretty much one piece construction. When the first 98 Flatline barrel came out it was more difficult to work with. This is just a drop in part and is so easy to use especially for beginners.
