3 years
Products Used:
tippmann 98
dark angel
angel speed
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5 Stealth
Response trigger
better bolt most likely a delrin
expansion chamber
Strengths: Long shot range.
Fast rate of fire due to cyclone feed.
Weaknesses: Accuracy
Gas efficiancy
Review: Its a good reliable marker. Has a very long range due to its flatline barrel. with a response trigger it can shoot as fast as you want. But it is very heavy, even with the removal of the tank. The shot spread is very wide. Because of the gas going through the bolt and the hopper and even possibly through the response trigger it uses a lot of gas. i usually only get around 700-900 shots out of it.

The first thing that you will want to get for this gun is a high pressure tank or a low pressure kit and a low pressure tank. The gun shoots CO2 terribly.
Conclusion: Its a descent begginer's gun. i made the mistake of buying it. Don't buy it unless you are into senario games.
6 out of 10

co2 works fine. thats why the gun is good, it works with hpa and co2 tanks.

I fyou dont like the accuracy, get an expansion chamber. The Flatline is an excellent barrel for both the 98 and A-5.

tippmanns have this thing that called a cyclone feed system wchich prevents chopping, and you probably installed the flatline wrong

ok i have alot of stuff today first of all The flatline uses small bore paintballs so use smaller sized paint maybe thats why wyou were chopping and thats why your shots were inaccurate i heard big ball marbilizers and pmi premiums work good, and actually an A-5 isnt that heavy, if you have a probelm with it being heavy then go tot he weight room, and the a-5 stealth uses a remote so if you think a gun is heavy without a tank then you better go tot he weight room.

Your gun must of had a problem with it because my tippmann A-5 can go through 1500 balls before it starts to run out of air. And another thing, it is not a beginners gun because I have seen guys who use it who have been playing fr 7 years and say it is the best gun that they have ever owned. And I also find that the A-5 stealth shoots c02 great. I have been using the Tippmann stealth for a year and a half and it has only broken about 10 balls in that time. It also seems moderately heavy I'll give you that but not heavy enough to complain about.

alot of people use this gun, begginers and pros, ever herd of the tippinators? the a-5 can be a bit of a gas hog, but its not that heavy, suck it princess, its a great gun.

Taking it into the consideration you are a speedball player, of course you shouldn't have bought it, and I use it with CO2 everytime and it actually performs pretty good, but yes I'll have to agree with the accurarcy thing, Flatline its not an accurate barrel, gives awesome distance, but its not a one shot, you want a one shot get an ultralite or a Stiffi, and just aim higher.

If you get this gun then the cyclone feed should keep up with you fine, I don't think you can out shoot the cyclone, but if you want bigger then im pretty sure you can get a bigger hopper for it but im not totally sure so don't start quoting me here
