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?

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.

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

get an e-grip its so much easier to maintain im like u i casually play and when i do its usually woods ball and i've found that if u get pinned down its much easier to just turn a switch to get the fire mode u want instead of trying to find a sweet spot trust me the e-grip is deff worth the extra $$ and i've yet to have a problem with mine

I have an R/T in my A-5, but I much prefer the E-Grip.
When in the heat of a game, you don't have time to
concentrate on sweet spotting as well as when your
just laying cover fire...   I always seem to have a
problem sweet spotting at the wrong times, like
when doing a run through. Its VERY hard to sweet
spot while running...   on the other hand, and E-Grip
w/ double trigger is easily walkable, at least for me,
even on a run. The E-Grip is much easier to shoot.

If I were you, I would go down to a shop or
something and see if they would let you try out an
R/T and then an E-Grip, so you can see how they feel
for yourself.

Dude an rt is good but it is as others said

1.gas hog

2. not turney legal

3.if you don't have an electronic feed hopper ur balls will split

so an e grip might be better although;

1. in woods if they get wet or banged up real bad you'll have lots of problems

2. not allways relable if ur battery dies and stuff.

but besides that their great i would recomend either one its your preference but if you doo have an expansion chamber and a atomatic feed you'll be fine in the woods or in speed just cant play in tourneys!

Ok- someone said it took 30minutes to install the R/T- well, the E-grip took me five while I was eating dinner. Yes, they're both really reliable slimjim23- they're made by Tippmann. You're getting down to rare freaky occasions where something broke- like I said, an E-grip is just easier to repair if something horrible did happen. Plus, the E-grip (please note it's the E-grip, not the E-bolt) is only 30 bucks more. That's it- only 30 more for easier, legal shooting. It's your call, but I'd mow a few more lawns for the E-grip.

They don't get wet that easily- the board is pretty well contained in the grip. Carry an extra battery in your pocket- it's not hard, not in the way, and you can change it real quick on the field (disconnect air supply first!!!!)


I think I'd prefer having to change a battery on the field than run tubing.

I seriously recomend the e-grip

1. it is tourny legal

2. it is simple to maintain

3. doesnt use any gas at all

4. easy to put in the gun

5. has multiple fireing modes, cool for lighting people up with paint!

I LIKE BIKES!

dude the r/t doesn't use more air than your gun shoots. it takes the extra air that your gun doesn't use. the r/t is the way to go. don't listen to them because they thin that it takes more air to use well go look for your self on the tippmann site in systems or accessories

It does use more air. Do you have one?   I don't see
R/T in your sig.   Take it from ppl who use it, it DOES
use more air....    not alot more, but just enough to
notice.

Exactly. I don't know why everyone thinks that the r/t is a gas hog. It uses excess gas from blowback.
