Review: The Tippmann was my second marker and was bought because I loved the look and could buy it direct from the USA for over £100 cheaper than I could in the UK. The original barrel was ok, but not as good as the Excel barrel i had on my old Spyder 2000. I looked at getting a Flatline but thought that far too much (in UK terms) and found the Stealth at a very good price in the UK.

Its a lot more accurate than standard, but maybe I havn't got the skill or the technique to say its as good as some people say. Works well when drapped in camo with the rest of the marker as it becomes almost invisible. I've used PMI Advantage (ok), Mid Evil (better) and Evil (best) with this barrel with the A5 and never had a ball break in the barrel and in the after game clean I have never had any problems getting the barrel back to clean with just a battle swab.

The A5 is now used as my spare marker, but is leant out to friends instead of them using site equipment and no one has ever had a bed word to say oon the set up.

Not as good as the Flatlines I have seen used on the same field, but at about a 1/3 of the price its good value.
Conclusion: If you want something better than standard and dont want to spend a fortune then this is a great buy
