Some where it said that the proteam warp feed is not as good or as reliable as the AGD warp feed, is this true?

I might be getting a warp feed for my PPS Blazer so which warp should I get, or is the AGD one only for AGD markers?

Since I have an autococking paintball marker, it is possible to short stroke every once in a while and have it chop. If I brake a ball in the chamber is it possible to clean the gun since I just take the bolt out and put a sqeegee through. I question if I can clean it like that because if I take the bolt out won't all the paintballs fly out?

Would you guys even recomend buying a warp feed?

What hopper would you guys recomend to go with the warp feed because my halo isn't working properly.
Would a regular gravity feed do nicely? Possibly a ricochet apache like that sweet setup Tyger has?

Don't bother with the Ricochet. I'm only using one 'till I can afford something that won't fall apart after a month's worth of use. I've destroyed 5-6 rico shells by just playing paintball with them. The one I've got now is cracked so badly I know it's going to disintegrate on me if it takes a good hit.

I used a warp on my Stroker (PPS gun) for a while, and it's fun. It's kind of a pain sometimes, because you can't shoot switch. You just roll the gun over and shoot normally, which is how it was designed. Plus the hose is the weak point. You get a hit to the hose, and you're gonna spend hours cleaning paint from inside there. Plus it off-balances the gun to one side. How you route the hose is also a problem, if the bend is too radical paint won't flow consistently.

All that being said, it opens doors on the field of play that normally aren't open. Come over the top of a bunker, and your hopper isn't hanging out. I've played speedball and laid down on the ground, laying the gun flat, and shot a string at a guy's foot to take him out. You can play building corners like you wouldn't believe, and it's TONS of fun to shoot at those "weird" angles you sometimes find your body contorted into. And it makes the speedball guys stop and say "Woah! Where'd you get THAT?!?!?" It's kinda fun intimidating people with the Warp on my Longbow setup. Makes them wonder.

Warps are extreme guns. You love it, or you hate it. It's a huge leap of faith to get one if you're in the latter category. I'm in the former. It's why my "Shortbow" is a warped gun, as I could never figure out the Q-loader.

I tried a Warp on my old Typhoon, I wasn't too impressed. It just didn't fit me. I could see how it could be useful, but its a very subjective thing.

I have a Warp, but I don't particularly like it. And Tyger's right about the Ricochet. I'm considering shelling out for a Fasta just so I can have a Ricochet-style hopper that won't break. Tyger basically summed up my opinions on the Warp and the Ricochet.

to prevent bad things happening with hose shots you can go to the hardware store and find a heavy duty hose that fits into your warp feed and adapter (if not quite a little electrical tape does the trick) and it should prevent hose breaks but if you get the clear smooth sided stuff all you need to do is take the hose off run a swab through it and shove it back on, problem solved

AGD also sells an upgrade hose that has wire inside the coils. This should aid in the battle against hose-breaks due to an impact.
