The CFS weighs nothing. A response trigger with make your gun Semi / AUTO / Full Auto all in the pull of a trigger, so when you need Full Auto when they have you pind down you will have them ducking all over the place.
The CFS just works better with the Trigger. It lowers the risk of you chopping a ball at the hammer. The CFS makes sure you have a steady feed of ball from the hopper going in the gun all the time, but the cool thing about the CFS is it only runs when you pull the trigger unlike the electronic hopper witch you hear a mile away and have to shut off with the button.

I would go with the Flat line Barrel only because my friend has one and his gun can shoot about 100 yard away accuratly, but your gun is what you want.
You have a A-5 with Response trigger, and a CFS system on it and a Flat line Barrel, YAH people will be bucking for sure when you let go , now if you want to go pro or something like that you will need to upgrade to a different gun, as far as i can see thought the ball you play your going to kicking ass man with the combo of stuff on a gun.

Can I use a hopper that runs on co2 with response trigger and it work just fine? like will it feed balls fast enough? What about Stock hopper?

If I get a flatline barrel, cfs (maybe?), and response trigger... then should I also get a...
Expansion chamber?
Double trigger?
Red dot scope?(I only want this to help make my a5 look like a sniper)
Use Co2 OR nitrogen???
E-grip?

To clarify a few things:
 
1. Only Tippmann makes the Flatline barrel.
2. The A5 already comes with the Cyclone.
3. Expansion chambers do help if you run CO2. Not necessary for HPA
4. HPA will help reduce freeze up with higher rates of fire (ROF) and provide more consistency
5. You can only have either an E-Grip OR a Response Trigger, not both.
6. Electronic hoppers are not necessarily capable of being "heard a mile away". Moot point, since standard electronic hoppers cannot be used on the A5 anyways without some sort of adapter.
7. Flatline barrels will increase range, but at the expense of accuracy. Anyone that says they can consistently hit a person with one shot/one kill accuracy from 100 yards with a Flatline is full of crap.
8. New players that have no clue what they are talking about really should refrain from giving advise to even newer players.
9. Seriously, read the stickies in the New Players forum as well as the Upgrades and Customizing forum. Every question you have asked has been answered repeatedly.

Ok. Thanks. And sorry. Wait, the a5 comes with the cyclone feed system??
Should I get response trigger or egrip?
Does double trigger work with both rt and egrip?

Thanks!
