Apex or flatline. once you get used to using it, then get a remote coil and put your air on your back. Which will give you more ability to move around without having that big tank on your A-5.


Check your cyclone to see if the ratchet is white, they have a new black one now, (contact Tippmann and they will probably send it to you for free). The white one breaks in cold weather...

I use a stock A-5, you can check out my videos to see tons of testing I have done over the years with it.


Oh and polish your internals if they haven't been done yet.

Get a J&J Performance Ceramic barrel in either 14" or 16". Then you have an awesome barrel that can be upgraded to APEX with their little adapter that they make. Stock APEX barrels are crap so start off with a JJ. You can usually get them for around $35 on eBay.

Get a low profile hopper for your Cyclone.

Remote as FreeEnterprise said. Tippmann makes one called the Connex which allows you to disconnect from your gun under pressure, Guerilla Air makes one called the Cobra Coil. Basically they are ProConnect 3 fittings which are awesome. http://www.ansgear.com/Tippmann_Conn...remoteline.htm

Dont mess with internal upgrades. No power tubes, not bolts. THe only internal upgrade I would recommend is the Engler Light Rear Bolt. http://www.englercpb.com/zencart/ind...ducts _id=945

i will not recommend any barrel longer then 14"
apex and flatline barrel dont shot accurate but give you distance.
best barrel i use is any hammerhead barrel. just not the straigtline only good for phenom.
another good barrel if you go carbon fiber is stiffi or deadly wind null they shot more accurate and quieter.

apex and flatline are the worst barrel i ever use.
if you want to shoot straight dont go apex or flatline.

The APEX takes a while to learn to use and the Flatline is picky. If you can tune your APEX to your field then it operates perfectly.
