So I just got a new a-5.  I was playing around with the electronics...And the only thing I adjusted was the bps rate.  I took it up to 17 just to see how it shot.  Went out back let er' rip...boy was I dissapointed.  It broke about every other ball that was shot out. Took FOREVER to clean out the cyclone feed.

The whole reason I got a tippmann a-5 was because I heard they were incredibly fast for the money, and I'm always seeing them at scenarios.  Did I get a bad apple?  Right out of the box I had problems.  Is there anything I can do to the cycolne feed to make it keep up with the gun?  I haven't adjusted any of the other settings on the gun.  I know nothing about dwell or any of that. 

If someone has any suggestions of what I can do or what the problem is please reply.  It's probably some small thing I've looked over.

Three things:

Vortex Mod

Lightning Rod

QEV

those will let your cyclone keep up with the egrip. you broke a ton of balls because the stock a5 cyclone will only feed up to 13bps, you were shooting 17.

turn down your bps, and you'll get much better results...

besides, who needs to shoot 17bps, i shoot 6 to 8 with my RT and i have usually have firepower dominance on the speedball fields where i play.
98CP ACT
R/T

I mean I usually don't shoot that much paint with ANY gun, but I just wanted to see what it felt like to shoot 17.  I will def. look into those upgrades.  Thanks man.

how fast can it shoot after those upgrades?

I am wondering Because I am upgrading to an e grip and would like to know which of those are the most necessary, and which will make it shoot upwards of 25bps or whatever, because I don't care about shooting that fast.
