A5's are nice but SP-1's are better. The SP-1 is much better in so many different ways.
1.) SP-1 is quiet
2.) Electric (?)
Those are just a few things that the SP-1 has over the A-5. Yes, when the A-5 came out, it was the alpha male of woodsball guns, sadly, this isn't true anymore.
Sell ur Tippy and move on up like the Jeffersons!
I just got my SP1 and its a great marker but i don't know if i could ever part with my A5. I love her so.
