I think I have the problem narrowed down, but I am in search of a sollution. During rapid fire my CO2 tank ices up and the cyclone feeder stops moving. We all know what happens next; I start chopping balls without warning . I have a A5 with RT and a GTA expansion chamber. Is there anyway to fix this problem or lease catch it before it starts happening?

are you playing in cold weather?

An anti-syphon tube might be your solution.

ya it  sounds like your c02 is freezing and clogging w/e works the piston on the cyclone, try the anti syphon thing, also you may need an expansion chamber, or i spose you could try something to keep the c02 tank at the temp it should be at

I don't think liquid CO2 is getting into the marker. I think it is just loosing pressure. I have a GTA expansion chamber.

Hmmmm... replace the GTA x-chamber with a different one. It sounds like it doesn't do its job well. Making an anti-sIphon yourself can be dangerous- find a proshop that will do it or buy one already made off the 'net at a good on-line store (try http://www.countypaintball.com )

A nitro tank will immediately solve your problem.

Otherwise, a better x-chamber, a remote, anti-syphon - all the things suggested above.

You could also shoot slower, but that is really boring.

this is normal the manufacturer's rating of the cyclone feed is 13 bps although people have gotten it higher than that.

I put an imitation r/t into my friends a5 and it did the same thing.

ya the cyclone capping it 13 is why i prefer the 98c over the a5, that also means there is alot more hopper options
