wat 20 bps!! ur crazy the A5 can only cycle at 15cps and da 98 is 13cps, so 20 bps is impossible, yet with polished internals u might get 1 more bps

i got a rt and i love it!

e bolt has all those extra things you dont need and with the money u use to buy that u could just buy a whole new gun.

 i installed my rt myself in less than 30 mins because it only has 2 or 3 parts. and just looking at the e bolt makes me confused!

 also u need to replace it with batteries all the time and it still might cut out in the middle of a game and thats gonna suck! if it were me i wouldnt want to be messing with the fire rate or operation or whatever while ur trying to play.

 a rt is sooooo simple! u either tap the trigger or hold it. and i heard that in a test it shot up to 20 bps! i dont think many people need to shoot much faster than that.

dang im so lost right now on which to get. "your mama" says r/t is more reliable and then LordJovian says e-grip is more reliable. and if the r/t is using excess gas like "your mama" said, why would i be wasting gas?

Baaahhhh!
The e-grip has a small problem with not tripping the sear when the battery is somewhat used- but oiling the sear tripper will fix that. The E-grip can be used just like an R/T in certain modes. The E-grip isn't just for high rate of fire, it's much easier to use than the R/T. My n00b friend rented an A-5 with the R/T and he had loads of trouble getting it to do what he wanted on the field when balls were flying over his head. The E-grip is much easier- plus if you don't want to just paint the field three round burst is nice for a very controlled full-auto effect. The E-grip by far is easier to amntain than the R/T- an R/T problem is mechanical, meaning you might have to buy new parts, replace hoses, etc. The E-grip you either oil it, change a battery, or tell Tippmann it's screwed up (rarely happens) and they'll send you a new one. That's about the extent of it. The E-grip is not complicated.

r/t because its cheaper shoots alittle faster u can sweetspot it for 3 round 2 round or what ever else round burst u can think of under 15-17 bps the other thing is u said u play woodsball so who the heck cares if it cant be used in most foelds or tournies just find a freind with a acre or two and play there the r/t is more reliable because if u have problems its easy to fix because its all mechanicle so unless u have gone to school to learn how to fix computer chips and all that crap i guess the response trigger is better. the r/t is way better and way more reliable for most people in my mind. it douse use excess gas just like the cyclone feed.

allright lets say it this way: i dont plan on gettin in any tournaments i just play casually. and people with e-grips always annoyed me because most of them hide behind a tree and hold the trigger down like a sissy-girl (hope that doesnt offend anyone). i'm not lookin for the one with the higher bps. so i need the truth, how much gas would i be "wasting" with an r/t?

r/t is more reliable, the e grip has a bad habbit of dbounce. but if you ever want to play a tourny get the e grip. but if not i would say the r/t. cheaper and the only reason he wants the e grip is for  full auto. what ever you think you want to do in the future.

Hey I was also wondering which is better the response or the e-grip...the thing is i used to have a spyder imagine (now i have the A-5 but u figured that out) and the electronics always screwed up and the same thing happened to many other imagines i've seen so has anyone with an e-grip ever had any serious problems with the electronics of it???

wow, take some time and read up on da A5, all da expansion chameber will do is make it a less chance to freeze up, HPA is still da best, note HPA will work w/o a reg (high pressure)

rt is cheaper and works very good for the price, but egrip is better, if u have the money.  I guess for the a-5 its only like 30 dollars more, so go that route if u can.  My brother uses turbo and shoots faster than full auto, and he even said that turbo mode is trny legal, but I dont know.
