It's just going to break after what..... 5 cases of paint now... ooo,

I believe they replace the broken ratchets with metal ones.

Yes, we did.

This is why I said that we had a problem and fixed it.



Umm.. if A-5's are metal Ratchet's now...  then why are new X-7's plastic??


On a side not thou. for all those complaining about plastic ratchets...  its a mechanical device!! 

Nothing lasts forever....  Something ALWAYS has to wear down and break. The ratchet is a cheap easy to replace part...

By replacing it with a metal one, you now have transferred the wear piece or the "DESIGNED POINT OF FAILURE" to something else that will more likely cost more and harder to replace..

I have never had a problem w/ my plastic ratchet (firing it 3-4 years now at least 2-3 times a month and 2000 rounds or so per day of play)  I guess I have just been lucky but should i call tippmann and get the replacement one now so it doesnt happen on the field?
Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...

idk wth is wrong just get another plastic one my a-5 is e-griped flatlined and it has a plastic rachet it has NEVER failed me i've been to a summer paintball camp and atleast 1 paintball weekend every month for the last year its worked just fine... i even hate to say it its worked better then my X-7 but i have read some stuff and i've found that the cyclone "fins" were a little sharp fixed it myself and that the ball dents on the x-7's are a little hard so i chopped it a little sometimes it takes a little "breaking in"
