My dad has that gun. Its like the eradicator or something like that. And the barrel looks kinda like cardboard with something around it.

I'm serious. It was awesome. I took 2 old barrels, glued them together at a 90 degree angle, and stuck that on the front of the gun. The verticle one acted as a hopper, and the water would shoot the ball out the horizonal one.
Later on, I just filled the thing up with water and food colouring and shot that at people. A good time was had by all.

To be honest the worst I've used is probably a 98 custom. I bought one for a family member as a gift just a few months before Tippmann stopped production of their Pro/Carbines. 98 Customs aren't absolutely terrible markers, but at the time they cost the exact same price as a Pro/Carbine and the materials and build quality were incredibly worse on so many levels. I owned Pro/Carbine at the time and thought I would get them something just a little bit different than what I owned, but it was unbelievable how much less you get with a model 98 when you pay the same price for a Pro Carbine.
From that perspective A-5s were an even worse of a deal. They cost even more but cyclone aside they were exactly the same but with a bulkier shell.

"Marketing hype in paintball?! The nerve of some people. After all, we paintballers would never throw our hard earned cash into the magic box of marketing hype."

agreed. My a5 was the biggest piece of crap i ever bought. I spent more on that marker than any of my current ones. And it failed on me more than all my other markers i have owned total (20+) combined. Worthless piece of trash. That cyclone is a piece of garbage. Broke every game i played. Everyone would tell me how reliable and great tippmanns were, how they were bomb proof. Well mine wasn't even air proof. Cause just being out in the air would break it.
