Products Used:
tippmann stock board for a5
angels ir3, a4 fly, force 4 fly, g7, g7 fly
Marker Setup: Force 4 Fly - 70 CU in 4500 fiber tank, dye ultralite barrels, Halo B with RIP and INTELLIFEED
Tippman A5 Stealth with Flatline, E-grip with APE rampage board
Strengths: Low Cost Multi Mode Hi-rate of fire Board
Weaknesses: No eyes
Review: I have a Tippman A5 for when I play in the woods, and I only had the respose trigger that it came with on there. I was disappointed in my rates of fire i could I achieve since I normally use an angel. My teamates have been trying to talk me into a E-GRIP for the A5, But at 13 bps, with not that many options I wasn't excited. That was UNTIL the APE Rampage board came out. I fired my teamates and had to buy it. I asked my parents for an E-GRIP for christmas and I got one, The board was like $50 from It has 7 modes of fire Including RAMPING! LOL This thing is great, my favorite mode is response where it fires on pull and also upon release, If you can pull 8 times a sec (most anyone can) your shooting 16 bps, with no bouncing. Oh yeah btw this thing has full adjustability for debounce and Max Rate of Fire can be set (mine is on 16 bps, but you can set it up to 25 bps INSANE). My friend has a WAS board for his A5 and has all types of problems, runaway triggers, quickly dishargin batteries, you name it, he used my board and just bought one. I almost forgot to mention this board uses a recesse push putton for programming, NO SCREWDRIVERS YEA!
Conclusion: This is a great board for how cheap it is, for less than a cost of a case of paint Buy it, check their website with a video of these guys shooting it. I love this board it is SO MUCH FUN. It doesn't have eyes, but I never chopped yet, and for the price I am giving it a 10!!!

I don't belive your going to have EYES on an a-5. I'm not sure where they'd go since the bolt is so far up, and I imagine it would be hard to install. Anyway, thats what the Cyclone feed is for, no need to worry about ball jams and feed jams. Though with increased rate of fire, I imagine it might happen once in a while.

A-5 don't get eyes. They don't use them. They can't use them. That is what a cyclone feed is for, and since it is a pnuematic force feeder, it is entirely incompatible with the function that eyes would perform.

I doubt you even own an a-5, or you would have known that.

You also would have probably known that the egrip is 15 BPS stock, and that its turbo mode is effectively a ramping mode.

Not disputing the rest of your comment, Tippmann does state that the stock E-Grip is capped at 15 bps, but that has been proven to be incorrect. The true max of the stock E-Grip is 13 bps.

I have been using the rampage board for about 2 weekends now. Its awesome..With the QEV mode i can get a constant 17-18 bps. This is plenty for woodsball and/or speedball. QEV cost me 19.95 from 7 firing modes. Plus push button, its awesome. X-mode on 4th pull full auto.

Can you get an adapter for the a5 to put the Halo on I need it!

i have a Piranha GTI with this board in it, mine has eyes, so it just depends what marker you have, i've never heard of an A-5 with eyes before
