shootnrun07 Monday, February 22nd, 2010
Period of
Product Use:
3 months
1 year
Products Used:
I haven't used any other similar products, what does it matter? These work like a charm, why would I test anything after having this success?
Marker Setup: Tippmann A5 with E-Grip, 14 inch J & J Ceramic Barrel, Squishy Paddles
Strengths: Softer than the plastic paddles that come with stock cyclone feeder.
Weaknesses: None.
Review: The problem I had before installing the squishy paddles :
I had problems with chopping paint when I first used my A5 with E-Trigger. I wasn't even able to use the full auto setting because I would only get a couple of paintballs to actually shoot out. I have a 14 inch J&J barrel that cleans itself if you chop a ball inside of it so I knew it wasn't the barrel. I can't describe how dissapointing it is to get shot only because your gun does nothing but spray paint when you shoot it.

Buying experience and results:
I ordered my TechT Squishy paddles for about $20, I was still new to paintball and found it ridiculous that these little things were $20. (I soon realized that anything that has to do with paintball is expensive and overly priced) After using them I would have been willing to spend $40 for them because I do not chop paint anymore.You will EASILY save up what you spend on these because you can EASILY chop $20 worth of paint with the stock paddles. THESE PADDLES SAVE YOU MONEY!! I will say it again, THESE PADDLES SAVE YOU MONEY! Even if you're not using the fully auto E-Trigger, you will manage to chop paint if you pull the trigger too fast. ( there shouldn't be such a thing as pulling the trigger too fast) When I say fast I'm not even talking all THAT fast, cyclones chop paint all the time without the squishy paddles. The squishy paddles allow for me to perform as well as I do. Don't let your marker hold you back. If you're not getting any hits on people because your marker is chopping paint or due to poor marker accuracy, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! With as much as you spend on paintball crap, $20 is NOTHING for what it does.

The installation of the squishy paddles is very simple. Even if you can't figure it out just go on YouTube and find a video that shows how to install them. (video won't even be 2 minutes long I wouldn't think)

Game play:
I have been taking down both speedball players and mil-sim players now. Head shots have been plentiful, NO CHOPPED PAINT, and I have been able to win in games where I had three people against me. I've noticed that I have better accuracy because I don't have any broken paint in my barrel anymore. I am able to use full auto to intimidate my opponents now and make them hide while I advance up the field without them seeing me while they hide in fear.
Conclusion: The cost is cheap for what it does(paintball items are expensive to begin with, so get over it), it's easy and almost fool proof to install, and my game play experience has been greatly enhanced.
I now find the squishy paddles to be essential. If you're debating on getting them, just get them already! You really do NEED these! This upgrade shouldn't even be considered an upgrade, it should be a STANDARD. Before you upgrade anything else on your marker get the squishy paddles. If you don't get the squishy paddles then you might as well not even get a marker that has a cyclone feeder, because they really are THAT essential. I give it a 10, 5 Stars, A+, 4.0 GPA, and any other possible amazing rating that is possible.
10 out of 10
