Review: I will say that I have not had a problem with my stock paddles but have heard many horror stories of the cyclones creating a blender with the paint; especially people with e-grips and high rates of fire. When I upgraded my gun to an e-grip, I left nothing to chance and got the squishy paddles. I got one of the original versions and due to a mistake on my part, I ruined them and replaced them with the newer versions. Now, they are colored, come with a nylon washer, and have an interlocking design. The color is just for looks and not a big deal. The nylon washer helps keep the paddles spinning freely and rubbing against the cyclone housing. The interlocking feature is great. Any chance of the paddles slipping and coming out of alignment are gone now. Unlike the stock paddles, which are hard and have sharp edges, the Squishy Paddles have rounded edges and are flexible. With high rates of fire and sharp edges, it doesn't make a good combination with fragile paint. I have not heard of a single person complain or regret buying these. Everyone I know loves them.

If you're sticking with a regular trigger, these might not be worth the buy, though.
Conclusion: One of the best purchases you can make for your cyclone.
