Review: I have been playing paintball for over 5 years now. I mostly play woodsball but have tried speedball a few times. I have owned my A-5 since it was released. I have never had a bit of trouble with it, so I din't see the use of owning a second gun. I had a friend who purchased an Alpha/Black and I fell in love with it as soon as I held it. We took it to my house and I was suprised on how well it could shoot and how accurate it was. So the next day, I picked one up and figured it would be a good back up for me. Once I purchased it I learned that it was just like a Tippmann 98. I also learned that your regular 98 barrels would fit it. So I quickly purchased a "14" carbon fiber barrel. Its just a back up so I went cheap and purchased the Stryker barrel ($30). I also grabbed an air remote to lessen the weight. So now I go out for a day of woodsball. About an hour in my cyclone gears take a crap on my A-5. I was mad but then remembered my Alpha/Black. I hit the field with it and was really impressed. I was able to shoot accurate (getting about 5 head shot kills while looking down the stock sights within two balls) and the gun just feels good. I actually think my A-5 weighs more. I did have to shake the hopper a few times to get balls flying but its a cheap hopper. Going to use an electric hopper I have next time. I also fired about a thousand rounds and still had air left and no ball breaks.
Conclusion: I would recommend this gun to anyone at any level. Its a Tippmann so it should be of sound quality and be reliable. Here is a list of some things I would purchase to make it even better.
(1) Air remote (tank to me is in the way if you don't and adds weight)
(2) Stock barrel is good (little heavy) but longer is better. Cheap carbon fiber works great and is light. New 98 Platinum Flatline will fit also (Called Tippmann and asked).
*UPDATE* Friend got the Flatline in... fits great and shoot awesome. We were hitting a box at 88 yards. Balls were even sailing past that.

88 yards thats like... 264 feet. if you did that I would praise you and make you a god because i have never head of anyone shotting something at 264 feet with a paintball gun. Even with a flatline barrel that is AMAZING. And you said quote balls were even sailing past that. I don't think so bud. If you could do that you should be on T.V. and you should have a statue. But you cant do that even if you were long balling. So i think this review is inacurate. I am sorry but its the truth i mean come on 264 feet I'm pretty sure thats impossible. Seriously you might need to rethink your distences. I'm sorry bud but 264 feet not going to happen

ya man agreed! i think people get a little to excited over very good test results, then have a tendencey to over exagerate
