Very light. Increased my consistency from +or-5fps to +or-3fps.
Just the price.
After switching from the hammer that comes from the tippmann low pressure kit to the titanium hammer I noticed an instant increase in consistency. Had a smoother and reduced recoil. Other than that no flaws in design. This is used only for low pressure systems using compressed air. You gotta be crazy to use this with co2.
People should only use this for low pressure systems. The only reason people get light hammers is for low pressure. The other reviews obviously used them on co2.
you must be rich. with just the A5 , the flatline,the Egrip and a low pressure system thats around 650 bucks.and i dont think that having your consistancy get better by 2fps is worth 60 bucks. you should have saved your money
umm i think that what ever gun can shoot 28bps is loaded up with delicate electrical crap and if you droped it from arms height you could break it. the a-5 is a woods ball gun. not what ever ur into lol
yeah, i think all that extra scenario stuff that you put on your gun is a complete waste of money. and 28 bps on a TIPPMANN??? thats bs. 28 bps is what you get when you turn your angel or nerve on full auto, not when you try to pull your tippmanns trigger really fast

You are correct it is the WAS board but it only (i say only) does 22bps. In the A-5 section of this site, there is now the Rampage board that does 25bps. Still not 28, but I don't think the human eye or ear can tell the difference between 25 or 28. Either way, shaasta is WRONG!!! If video proof is needed go to www.qloader.com and click Media then Movies. There is a video with a Qloader mounted A-5 with a WAS board.
You shouldn't knock what type of PB people play, especially playing with a 98 which is considered more of a woodsball/scenario marker anyway. It's why they call it MIL-SIM or Military Simulation if you can't figure that one out...to which the added scopes/lasers/flashlights are used by the military. If they use it to get the advantage in real armed combat, then it would do the same in SIMULATED combat. Aside from which, why are you talking about an overpriced plastic angel when you supposedly own a 98 according to your reviews. Either way, bps whores are all spray and pray anyway. You can't beat accuracy over fire rate. Fire rate may help, but is pointless if you don't have distance or accuracy. Of course a nice combination of fire rate and accuracy is best. If the hammer gives more accuracy when INSTALLED AND USED PROPERLY, then whether it's 2% or 10% increase in accuracy it's an improvement. When it comes to paintball, which is very inaccurate anyway without MAJOR modification, any little bit to get that ball where you want it helps.
To OSinOgre: no, it will not work. If you look at the LPK on Tippmann.com, the kit in which this hammer SHOULD BE USED WITH, comes with an updated valve assembly with a lighter spring and hammer (hence lighter spring has less resistance for a lighter hammer) for the A-5 which has a lighter spring to allow the valve to open adequately for enough air to move through, and a lighter hammer to push open the valve (instead of hammering it open with a heavier hammer and increasing the volume of air). You can still use it with a normal regulator at 325, just not without the LPK, or a lighter at least a lighter spring in the valve assembly in your marker if you go with this hammer, but you'll still need a low pressure chamber since LPK uses more air volume and less pressure than it does air pressure with less air volume.

i say just get the rampage board with the powershot solenoid. longer battery life, no skipped shots, adjustability is awesome, LED mode indicater with push button, water resistant coating, and who really needs more than 25bps (just get the vortex mod to shoot that fast). just thought you might want to know the WAS board is programable from 8-30 bps so don't write a report about what you dont know.
