Weaknesses: - Chops balls when firing past 13 bps

Review: This product is actually worth about 130-150 bucks in the end with all the upgrades it needs to actually work properly. my internal stock parts haven't broke yet (whew) but i've seen a lot of people go into a nearby pro-shop replacing their internal parts. so far i've only gotten the squishy pads for the feeder because the stock pads kept chopping my balls when i fire past 13 bps - the squishy pads solved that problem, yay.
Conclusion: If you want to fire past 13-15 bps, get the upgrades such as the vortex mod and squishy pads for your cyclone feed. You don't really have to waste your money on the lightning rod and QEPH.

if not, dun consider getting a response trigger or trigger or they'll chew up your cyclone feed.

I give it a 6 for the horrible stock parts. would be a 9-10 if tippmann included the upgrades with the cyclone feed.

6 out of 10

good review but the QEPH is definately worth it. i installed the entire TechT system and i now get 22bps easy. Also, if the stock hopper is too bulky, get the X7 hopper. it is much lower in profile and holds the same amount of paint.
