Products Used:
I have never used or thought to use an elbow or offset until I discovered this one.
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5
Response trigger
14" stiffi
car stock
spec ops offset w/ 330 round loader
Strengths: Very strong made of lightweight metal
Weaknesses: Not precise fitting some force needed to insert hopper.
Review: I ordered this product after realizing that the hopper on the A-5 is somewhat in the way from regular view. Also I ordered this with the bigger hopper upgrade, so I knew a 330 round hopper would obstruct my view even more than the factory loader. This offset is well made and adds even more paintballs to your hopper (approx. 18 more)

No I dont use a sight on my gun...I think their useless although I have never tried one. This offset opens up your view considerably and when in a fierce battle you need all you can get. It doesnt tilt so much that the gravity fed hopper wont work ...but just enough for a perfect balance.

The only problem I see with this product is that I had to literally force my hopper into it....It took a little presuasion for it to go...but after the first time ...I have had no problems since...
This upgrade is not essential to the A-5 by any means...but it looks cool and has some major advantages.

1. Sight is increased....especially if using a stock.
2. Ball count in hopper is increased by 18...not much but you never know when that might save you.
3. A must have if your looking to buy a larger capacity hopper...I recommend the 330 loader.
4. Lastly ...it just looks cool.
Conclusion: What do you have to lose....Its pretty cheap...I got mine for under $20 w/shipping....
Ill give it a 10/10 just because it works great.
