I don't know if it matters or not, but I like woodsball. Anyway I'm looking for the more reliable of the two, and whatever performs better. Please give reasons for your choices, thanks.

e-grip : tourney legal, differnet fire modes, 15bps

RT : not tourney legal, takes some time to get used to "sweatspotting" it, its a gas-hog, 14-15bps

dang...now i dont know what to do. i was planning on getting the r/t. is it really a gas hog? i thought it was just like the cyclone, using excess gas. also, i wanted the more mechanical one rather than the electronic one...

i'm getting an expansion chamber also. would that eliminate the problem of using too much gas? (if that really is true)

thanks

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.

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)

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???
Sssssssssniped!!!

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.

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 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.

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.
