I'm a woodsball player and Im looking to get a second gun that's capable of going full auto.  I'm partial to the a5 but I can't make up my mind when it comes to the trigger. 
What do you guys recommend?
Also  what kind of batteries does the egrip use?
98 Custom Pro Platinum
Response Trigger
DOP Rocket Cock 2
Lapco Bigshot 12" w/Apex Tip
Tippmann Triumph Hopper
HPA 90/4500

I would go with the egrip.
 
The A-5 RT never really worked like the 98 or X7 ones do.
The egrip takes a regular 9 volt battery.

for the price of an a5 with HE, I can simply upgrade my 98 to go full auto and have roughly $130 to spare.  should i just do that instead?

idk the a-5 is a good gun but i wouldn't spend the extra money to make the a-5 full auto if you could do the same thing to the 98 and save money. Plus you could buy alot of paint for $130

I bought an A-5 Response, and it's terrible. Never goes past 10 bps, and is very hard to sweetspot, only stays sweetspotted for a second. So it's not actually full-auto at all.  I sent it in to Tippmann twice to get it 'fixed,' but it worked better before hand. It's a waste of money. So if I were you, I'd go with an e-grip. And i don't see how a few tiny pieces of rubber and metal can cost $70 either...there's really not much to it.

I just sold my A5 R/T and some other stuff for store credit to get an e-trigger for my Alpha Black... and I am very happy! Didn't like the A5 R/T one bit...

I would just upgrade your 98 to a egrip because then you have $130 and a full auto gun.  With the egrip you can change the firing mades.

Since you are playing woodsball, the response trigger will be more durable

E-grips are actually quite durable. Short of dropping them in water, there is little to worry about with them. I had as many problems with my RT'd 98 as I did with my E-gripped A5's.  If you want durable, stick with a stock semi-auto and you will be trouble free 99.9% of the time.
 
IMO, anytime you "upgrade" a marker, you decrease the reliability/durability.
