I have the e-grip and if I could go back to when I bought my gun I would have gotten the r/t.

Once you find the sweet spot on your r/t, you will love it.  After buying a DOP Blade Trig, I was amazed on how well my r/t worked. ( for a-5)

You never specified 98c or A-5, so I can't be as much help as I'd like to be. If you can't sweet-spot your RT, try this: Screw the adjustment screw all the way in until the gun won't shoot, back it off 1/4 turn at a time, test fireing between adjustments. Squeeze with consistant pressure, you should be able to get it to crank right along at this low setting. It won't be fast, but it'll be easy. Keep backing off until you get the right balance between speed and ease of keeping it going. It's up to you what you want.

Generally speaking you'll be lucky to get a 10 shot burst with an RT. However, with a HPA tank with the ROF set relativly low so it's easy to sweet spot, I've been able to empty a hopper plus in one burst on a stock A-5RT. Just pouring fire into a group of about 30 suckers who had no way to go but through us to escape, and directly through my fire lane to get there. I totally respect the RT. It's great for people like me who dislike electronics.

The E-grip is however, much more versitle.



My E-grip is pre-was. Totally forgot about the was board.

I have both.

Response Trigger:

Pros:
-Faster than E-grip
-Can switch between full and semi auto on the go, its all about how you pull the trigger

-runs off excess air

Cons:
-Installation is hard for the average player
-Not tournament legal
-Some fields dont allow it
-Have to tune it


Egrip:

Pros:
-Able to walk
-Easy installation on A-5 (switching grips)
-Tournament Legal
-Field legal
-Different modes of fire
-Adjustable rate of fire

Cons:
Harder to install on the 98c.

Uses batteries
need little screwdriver to switch modes of fire


I'd take the E-grip over the response trigger anyday

I tell ya, the R/T is a pain to get right, but worth it. I've fought with mine for about 2 months and just got it working right last week. It was worth the fight in my opinion.

Well hopefully it's the new style 98c, otherwise you'll need the E-Bolt.  One con with the E-Grip is that it is a sear tripper.  It's not a huge deal, but still.  Otherwise I love the E-Grip on my Custom Pro E.  Good modes.  Fast enough for now.  Overall pretty good.

Okay, currently, I have the R/t installed. Blah blah, yea better then semi-auto. But it's not satisfying me. Just for the fact that I can never seem to find that certain "sweet spot" to rattle the trigger. So, I am deciding on just ridding myself of my frustrations, and a few hundred dollars  To just have the E-grip installed. Jesus I wish I would have shopped around before just throwing sht into my gun that I didn't know anything about. But, if someone could help me in this decision by helping me find the pros and cons of each, it would be great!
