Re: A former SP Impy guy, has some Questions ....
Sorry to hear the reason for you getting a new gun, people who steal paintball stuff really suck.
Anyway, I'll try to help with the Qs.
1.What is the big difference between an 04 and 05 speed?
The 05 has an eye system on it stock, a 9v in the grip instead of a rechargeable tube battery and it has a magnetic trigger system with external adjustment wheels. It alsho has a twistlock low-rise.
2.What kind of ups might I want, or look for?
An aftermarket board with eyes, a new barrel (I'd get a fairly big bore DYE UL), a low-rise if it doesn't have one already. Maybe an aftermarket inline reg, liek the CP reg, but you don't really need it.
3.Should I get the halo B or is the egg ok? (Iíve heard rumors about Halos double feed)
Eggo is ok, but you can use a HALO on the gun. It's just a matter of taking the detent springs out and pulling them out a bit so they get stronger. Also when you use a HALO you have to make sure the ram adjustment is perfect or you'll get rollback.
4.The 04 has a sensi in it, could I get an eye for it? (He said that heís only chopped a couple balls with it.)
Yes, there are several custom shops that install eye systems on Speeds. Theangelguy (TAG),Warpedsportz LA, Impact paintball to mention a few.
5. How many shoots could I get off a 68/4500 tank?
Depens some on how you set up the gun, how good paint to barrel match you use and that kind of thing.
More than on an average IMP but less than the most efficient cockers.
