yea but why spend the money to buy a cyclone, when you could have just bought a regular hopper. i hate the cyclone system, it just sucks. its really wide, its not that fast, its very rough with brittle paint, and is really heavy.

i congradulate you on your craftsmenship, but i still find it a waste

The Cyclone is heavy???  It is significantly lighter than any other hopper other than a VL200.  No batteries, remember?  Try lugging a HALO around...

Granted, the side mount can be an annoyance for speedball, but I love the low profile for woodsball...

lol yeah, halos are rather heavy...

to the man who ate paint chips or just got some bad acid....lol 15 bps is rather fast if you ask me, its plenty fast. and the real funny part is, your getting flamed like crazy.

I have things called muscles, and I use them to hold my gun, as said before, man up.  boohoo, my guns too heavy (weeping...) That is a sweet gun and an Awsome milsim.  I would use that gun any day.  Very Nice Job.  I congratulate you.  ironic that A-5 Bunkering doesnt like the A-5...

Looks too bulky, I would hate lugging that around...but over all good job (that is if you did it), good paint job, looks very heavy though

Hahahahaha

One, the cyclone is NOT the fastest.
Two, the rough with brittle paint comment was talking about paintballs, not the hopper.

I guess I haven't weighed them on a little scale, but holding my 12V Revvy and my Cyclone in my hands, the Revvy is noticably heavier (w/2 9V batteries).  And, of course, the Cyclone outfeeds the Revvy by quite a bit. 

I recognize there is some taste involved here, but to me the Cyclone is one of the best features of the A-5.

You don't know heavy until you've held an original AGD RT 'Mag with a WarpFeed and a Flatline tank. All stainless steel baby (cept for the warp).
And anyways, ever think he did it so he would have a decent-speed hopper that doesn't need batteries? That's a big reason why I bought my Qloader. Running out of battery power mid game sucks. Sure he could've gotten the Q instead, but hey he did something custom. He shouldn't be flamed for that. Again, have you people no imagination? God talk about close-minded, uptight hard@sses...
