Marker Setup: -Tippmann A-5, Shocktech Drop Forward, Low pressure system, Pmi 72 4500, J&J edge Kit, Response Trigger (OH YEAH), Double Trigger, and Cool stickers
-Response is a must, as is a double trigger, and a barrel(anything is better than the stock)

-Looks awesome(thats what won me over)
-Easy clean
Weaknesses: -Cyclone is a pain to clean
Review: I have played alot of paintball, from rec to scenario, and i have used alot of guns, even played with the timmies and Angels, but Tippmann's durability, precision, price and performance won me over and stopped me from buying something that costed a thousand bucks.
Lets go over why the A-5 is such a good buy
-Basically has a built in hopper, so you don't have to spend that extra money for a evo or halo and batteries
-It is true that the A-5 is a gas hog compared to some guns, but i use a 72 4500 and you should get around 1500 shots, well at 850 psi i was getting 1100 shots and to me thats is not a huge differance, i mean what is 400 shots
-The stock barrel is not the most accurate barrel, hence why i got the J&J edge (which is the coolest barrel), but what stock barrel is perfect, there are some good barrels out there so spending an extra 50 bucks is not that much or even 70 if you want the J&J edge
-The respnse is probably the most clever system ever invented for a paintball gun, i love it, When you hit that sweet spot on the respnse it is the best feeling on a paintball marker, I do play alot of rec ball and i shoot just as fast as it seems as all of the cockers and timmies
-As i have said i play alot of rec ball and scenario and i have to honestly say this is the funest paintball marker i have ever played with
Conclusion: I have spent alot of money on my A-5, but when you play as much paintball as i do and spend 75 to 100 bucks a week for paintball then I would get this gun and do what i did to get the highest perfoming, best looking paintball marker you will ever encounter, and remember that paintball is a sport so have fun with it and kick a**
