Okay, so before I bought this, I'd only played 4 times, so go easy on me for getting paintball terms wrong. Anyway, the 4 times I had used a rental A-5 with stock barrel, gravity feed, and c02. It stunk. The balls would fly out of the barrel and 15 feet later would do a curveball. I mean, it would just go straight down. Also, I did pretty well in speedball against other rentals, but one guy came in with a pilot and lit me up. I needed a gun. I wanted a gun that was durable, upgradeable, accurate (for when I wanted to snipe) and fast enough that I could play speedball competitivelly. This gun is a dream come true. For $200, I got it with an E-trigger already installed, and after buying an air tank, a faster hopper, and a dye ultralite barrel, I was ready to play. I went, and it was immediately apparant that this was a hell of a lot more accurate than the rentals. We played a few games of speedball 2 on 2, which I completely dominated with PSP. Then, one of my friend's who was there wanted to play me. He had a PMR that he spent $400 on, a $200 pinokio hopper, and some proto barrel. He was known for speedball, has been sponsored before, and is one of the best players I know. Everybody was muttering how I was going to get raped. Well, to make a long story short, I won 2 out of 3. Then, we played a woodsball 30 person game of center flag. I went all the way around and sniped 4 of them before they even knew I was there. Basically, I did WAAAY better than usual, and I owe it all to this gun. Thank you tippmann.
If you want a cheap gun that is accurate, fast, durable, and very, very upgradeable, buy this. Hopefully, I can get a flatline, scope, and ghillie suit soon for woodsball, then I will be virtually unbeatable. BUY THIS GUN with an e-trigger, air, a faster hopper, and a new barrel. You will not be dissapointed.
