Not trying to start an argument or anything but the plotline definitely does what it does because the barrel is curved. The paintball riding along that curve gives it its backspin

JSR in the previously linked to thread about backspin wrote:I mean fair enough, it flattens the trajectory and reduces the effect of gravity - in the vertical plane. As it's slowing down the projectile however, it's making it even more susceptible to the effects of wind in the horizontal plane.

It would be much better to have no spin and just practice enough so you can quickly judge and compensate for different distances on the field.

I stand by that opinion.
