You'll never worry about chopping a ball with an A-5...no matter how fast you try and shoot it.
Edit: Also, depending on where you will be using the marker is key. If you support and play Mil-Sim games or like larger woodsball/scenario games, then the A-5 is the best marker for you. A virtually unlimited amount of marker configurations along with mods/add-ons/upgrades to choose from, including an E-trigger frame, double trigger and low-pressure system so you can run off of low pressure air(which is an awesome thing to have so your marker never freezes and almost everywhere you go to play fills compressed air/nitro).
I had an A-5, and still do actually. I have a Response Trigger, Expansion chamber, and a new barrel and it shoots ropes allllllllllll day long without a hiccup or ball break. Dunked under water for the fun of it, and it still works. After 3 years of once being under water, unlubricated, and tortured for hours on the field, it still works like it did when I first took it out of the box to shoot it in my back yard.
Tippmann makes an amazing product...the choice is yours.
