Will a cyclone feed with QEV keep up with

the Super RT and the Dark Horizons Titanium Rear Hammer(which is 60% lighter than the stock hammer and when its by itself makes the 98c go faster than a gun with the regular RT) and the Maddmann Spring Kit?

All these things speed up my gun to about 22bps or more so will my cyclone feed with QEV keep up with that speed and not break or should I get the Vortex mod?

So you are saying buy the vortex?  Or will the QEV that I'm going to install on the cyclone keep up with 22bps?

That's what people with slow guns say.

 

I don't know why I like to shoot fast. I don't when I play, so it shouldn't matter, but it still bugs me if I know I can't (shoot fast.)

My NME could easily do upwards of 23bps, but it doesn't.  I capped it at 16bps. 

Why?  Because if I can't hit someone w/ 16bps I'm probably not going to hit them with 23bps either.  No need to waste the paint.  Humans cannot run through a stream of paint @ 15bps fast enough to avoid getting hit at least once, why shoot faster? 

I deceided that I don't need to be firing more than 18bps, ever.  I save paint, play more games, hurt less people, and overall have a better time.

I know what Im doing and might do in the future.  I'm not going to get the Super rt, the QEV and the Vortex just yet cause it would run me up $120 without customs or duties. 

So for now I'll just get tippmann to send me my T fitting and run my response trigger with the cyclone feed and the $60 Dark Horizons Titanium Bolt and also my new Maddman Spring kit which are both coming in the mail soon.

I'll probably get about 15 -17 bps and I'm sure it will be fast enough for me, if not I'll upgrade later. I just hope my hopper can keep up cause I wont have qev or vortex and the DH Hammer makes the gun pretty fast and with rt even faster.  Oh well I can turn speed down if needed on the rt.

Alright guys thanks for your input though.
