RT vs E-Grip...thoughts?

Looking to increase my RoF with with RT or the E-Grip. Does any one have any experience with either? Price isn't an issue, I'd rather get whichever helps to level the playing field when going against speedball guns.

For speedball guns im gonna say an egrip, but for the money you are better off buying a new marker, an e grip is gonna be a little more of a pain but you will have a higher bps

What marker may I ask tippmann 98 or a5? I like the feel of the rt on the a5 but not on the 98 so much.

I have both and much prefer the R/T trigger to the E-trigger.

* No batteries to mess with.
* With a shim in the piston (The Outh's RT mod on A5OG) there is no "sweet spot" you just hold the trigger down and it is full auto.
* The harder you squeeze the trigger, the higher the ROF.
* With a pin in the sear (Q-Tip mod) it will fire up to 24+ bps (blender mode).
* It is adjustable on the fly with a fingernail. My field's limit is 12.5 bps.
* No batteries to mess with.

I can easily keep up with "real guns" on the speedball field so you are down to weight and maneuverability as the downsides to the A5 or 98 at that point.

I run a Project Salvo, not looking to get another marker for a bit since I like the Salvo just looking to increase RoF.

Is the Cyclone able to keep pace with 24 bps?

Not really. I have one with a QEPH and full TechT upgrade and another one with the 2011+ stock internals and they both start chopping paint over 20 or so bps. I have tested it with an XRadar, but it is kind of a moot point since I can't play with it that way anyhow. 15 bps is plenty of paint for what I need and is perfectly reliable with the R/T trigger. I mostly prefer it because they are totally mechanical so no screwdrivers, batteries or worries about rain and weather.

There's no real point in shooting that much paint. It's outlawed on fields, its expensive, and you'll definitely hurt someone if they fall in your lane for 1 second (24 bruises) lol.

The cyclone will hold 15bps just fine.

I'll find you a link, they are easy. The "UlTra R/T" consists of a 1/8" R/T kit with a nylon washer shim in the piston to keep the adjustment right at the sear trip point, a lighter trigger spring, and a metal pin in the sear slot to eliminate the delay caused by the rotation of the sear pivot.
