Default Re: Barrel Info for Potential Buyers

it doesnt say it doesnt affect ball flight, but rather accuracy.

Flatline creates backspin which fights the effect of gravity (like tennis, if you apply heavy topspin, the ball radically drops after some distance, but if you apply backspin it looks like it floats and it does create a flatter trajectory). as it says, if there is dirt on the side, itll spin to the side.

so what backspin tries to do is spin upwards like dirt makes it spin to the side), but gravity pulls it down at the same speed it tries to go up, therefore keeping a flatter trajectory for longer, until it loses spin and gravity takes over.

Hammerhead for example is supposed to create rotational spin.

Do you mean like a real gun barrel? with spiral ridges?

I dont know thats why i said "supposed to".

But if it does, then as stated in the first post, the shell will spin and not the fill, (like spinning a glass full with water and ice).

A spyder with enough work involved with it can shoot amazinging. ICD, lol why would you even compare them with the guns next to them. FTL


I really dont see why someone had to sign up for this information when really you could search and find it all out, at the most.

But this thread does have some good points.

that is called rifling (sp?). it creates spin on the bullet to make it fly farther with less dropoff in the begining. i believe hammerhead barrrels have this. flatline barrels create spin (somehow) and make it fly farther. idk if they fly straighter or not. i know that the apex barrel (aka cheater barrel) can make them fly accurate if you have it set right. hope this helps

My rifled barel has no spiral ridges, they are straight, they dont create spin in fact it supresses it. I dont know how it can shoot trough dirt yet..

flatlines force the ball up a slope causing backspin, the apex induces drag on a certain side.

the apex barrel can also make the paint fly accurate if you dont have it set to curve it. a guy at my home field showed me
