tippmann flatline fps

Does anyone know if/how much the fps changes when you go from normal barrel to flatline?
(Without changing anything else)

I assume it will change, is it like 5-10fps or more extreme like 20+?

yes more like 20-30 fps.....more noticeable when you go the other way of course, ie have it set for flat line then go to a normal barrel

No. It goes down 10-20 fps with a flatline on my 98.

yes it goes down, so having it set for say 280 with a FL then half way through a game you swap it out for a normal barrel, and then get pulled for a hot gun as it now shooting 300-310.

it was one of the ways guys tried to "cheat" in the early days of flatlines, the best way to tune them seemed to be run the marker as slow as it would run then just start firing a steady rate of fire (i dont know maybe a 1 a second) and slowly adjust the fps up, suddenly the balls will start back spinning and you are good, seemed to be around the 230fps (with a flatline) the issue was you needed to do this for every time you played as it was really dependent on paint size.
