apex or flatline barrel, eventually i will do a camo paint job myself, maybe a response trigger to keep up with the hopper, double trigger (already have just havent installed), and squishy paddles for the cyclone.  :)

Will be nice xD I suggest getting a buttstock? I'd rather get the Apex2 over the flatline. I have one and it's awesome! xD

I had the Apex for my a5 and it did not work all that well... i ended up switching back to the m16 barrel. The Apex2 looks interesting. You could also go with a CP barrel. They are slightly over-bored and i noticed when i play with cheap paint, a lot more of it goes where i want it to instead of veering off everywhere. All paint balls typically start out (size) around .689.
My weapon of choice has been a 
CP 14" 1 Piece Classic Barrel. I bored to .693. It works GREAT!

The trick shot stuff is BS to me. I don't like that at all.

If someone blasted you in the five hole with a trick shot would you become a believer?

In my experience the Apex 2 was very rough on cheap paint. as I am to cheap to buy non cheap paint, I returned it and switched back to my J&J ceramic barrel. Nothing fancy, but it works well.
