I'm just starting to practice paintball. And I have started with this winter paintball.
And after firing more than 6000 paintballs, I am a bit disappointed.
I see two main problems :
With my new A5, with no upgrades (powertube, paddles, ....) and with a velocity between 280 and 300 fps, I have broken many balls inside the barrels.
So I decide to upgrade my marker. (see all the upgrades in my Marker Setup) and I have reduced my velocity between 260 and 280 fps. And now, no more broken balls.
I have so added an E-grip, and it's ok, still no problem.
OK, then I have checked the precision of my firing, and then..... It's amazing. :-(
Even with a Red Dot, with my marker blocked against a tree (to avoid any movement), it's really not accurate. Many balls hits around the target (above, below, on the left, on the right). I'm really desapointed
With this ball, you can't have a brand new marker with a velocity close to the limit if you want to avoid any broken balls.
And if you solve this problem, you will have problem of accuracy.
Dispute: A5s are well known for chopping paint, especially the cyclone. I've used frostbite a fair bit, in a 'Cocker, Milsig, T8 and Shocker, and played with individuals using it in Vices, Egos, DMs and several other types. The only people I know of to have issues were those using X7s and A5s. The paint works just fine, it may just be your marker that is hard on paint.
