All depends on the barrel. Flatline doesn't make your shots more accurate, it just makes the paint fly further. I don't think it's any more consistent than other barrels.

Un-interested until they show proper photos.

What does the cyclone side look like?
What kind of permanent modding has been done to the A5/X7's? (if any)

I could spend $130 to upgrade my A-5 with the mag kit and a flexi-air system. Or I can sell my A-5 for around $170. Then send $130 plus the $170 to buy a T68 special edition basic with the same features.

I wasn't aware they went that cheap.

With the A5 you do get to keep the hopper functionality, you wont get a T68 splitfire for $300.

Hmm... will this work with the Phenom mechanical? I don't see why not, but better safe than sorry...

Based on some of the stories I'm hearing from rap4 users, eyes would be a great idea on magfeds.

concerns...

Where is the CO2 connection for the salvo upgrade? It should be at the bottom of the grip but I don't see it in the pics.

Anyone know if you'll be able to use first strike paintballs with these mags?

you can see a ball fly out of a flateline barrel 50 yards away. to easy to escape them. besides, a typical tippmann dont come stock with a flateline. so, therefore. stock for stock, the t68 beats it hands down.

here's the problem with that last statement. you know the whole thing about the cyclone right? not every ball is going to make it to the breach...not with that pop corn affect at least. so you can still have 2 balls that are not in the breach but still in the cyclone. the marker does not shoot because it's out of balls? that is how pointless the eyes would be for the tippmann...unless you are using something else other than the cyclone. that, i can see it happening.
with the whole mag thing, i can see working eyes, but then you will be relying to heavly on electronics. which means, no more mech trigs, only e-trigs. this is why we have options of either mech or e-trig.
with tourny markers, you dont get a choice. the only choice you get is what board to use in your e-trig and trigger.

I've always wanted to make a mil sim gun so I guess this is a perfect time to start.

That video was great. The X7 looks sweet with that magazine kit . I’m interested to see the performance of the magazine feed with an electronic trigger in both 3 round burst and full auto. I know that I have problems with chopping in my TPX when I shoot rapid fire (more then 3 BPS) and can imagine that an A-5 or X7 may have the same problems. Hoping this modification has positive feed back. I’m really looking forward to seeing future test results.

Jamming feeds due to the odd big ball or whatever have long been a problem that I've been hearing about with magfeeds. To me it seems that an electro magfeed with eyes wouldn't be such a bad idea.

I'd like to see them make one of these kits for a TM15 or even a speedball marker, but I can see how it would be much more complex to design and then to do the conversion. Certainly not impossible though.

Why are there zero pictures of the other side of the gun with this kit? Even in the video the guy doesn't show the right side at all.
