Hi - new user, new owner of an A-5. I recently went to our local park and used some paintballs that I had purchased from a sports store and they turned out to not be able to handle the paddles inside of the cyclone feeder very well. 

Are there any paintballs that can be considered to be more "friendly" towards the cyclone feeders? A quick google search seems to indicate RPS Stingers, but I wanted to check on this forum to see what the consensus has been with people who actually use and own them.

Thanks!

@Far_side,

Sup man. I am new to paintballing too. However, my brother owns an A-5 and we used RPS Ultra Evil couple of days ago. There were no breakage for his stock A-5 w/ Flatline barrel. I on the other hand have a X7 Phenom and did not get ball breakage in the cyclone feed. I'm out here in California which has the best weather in the U.S. so the weather isn't too harsh on the paintballs making it more brittle than it already is. I think I've also read some where in these forums that Tippmann tests all their guns with the Marbalizers. Its like 75 dollars for a case. You can probably find it for like 45-55 if you shop around. Hopefully, there will be a Veteran at paintball that can further help you out.
Newbie w/ Tippmann X7 Phenom Mechanical, Flatline Barrel, 45ci/4500psi ninja, dye i4,.. currently shopping for a remote line/harness, all the little extras come later.

I recommend Winter Fill paintballs for the winter. I know here regular paintballs can get too brittle in freezing temperatures.

In warmer weather I use mid grade paintballs. Good breaking shell not as delicate as high end tourney paint.

Thanks Evil - Are the RPS "Stingers" considered a mid grade ball? Or better yet, what is considered a mid grade ball?

infinity, xball scenario, empire munitions, and draxxus field are all great paints considered "mid range". 
They tremble at my name...
