Probably the RT trigger. The Firestorm is geared more to the double trouble I believe. You could always upgrade to an E-grip

I would say out of the two, the RT. You can get the same ROF fire, and it's not as clumsy as the Firestorm Crank. I've used both on a single marker and the RT is by far the winner.

I would more likely go with the E-Grip over the Response Trigger though. That way you don't have to mess with fine tuning and sweet spotting.

You meant the F/S, right?

Yes, I would say that the R/T is better than the F/S when properly tuned and the E-Grip is superior to both. If you can afford both the R/T and F/S then why not just buy the E-Grip? Unless you play in the pouring rain a lot or can't stand buying/replacing batteries every couple cases of paint then just get an E-grip.

There is not need to buy both. They do the same thing (fire a marker fast) but use different techniques. Using both is pointless as the F/C would defeat the purpose of the R/T and vise versa, besides it wouldn't give you any more firepower the either by themselves.

No. Having one negates the other's effect. For the RT to work, the trigger needs to be held at a sweet spot. That negates the constantly moving nature of the Firestorm.

You definitely don't want to do both. You might think you could get higher rates of fire with the crank having the RT installed, but what happens is, you end up making the crank harder to turn and it really hurts your rate of fire. They just don't go well together. Now the crank and E-Grip...that's a different story.

Hmmm...Well the Firestorm is just so much cheaper, and I then maybe later down the road I'll buy an E-grip.

Is this for an A5? If it is, then go for the E-grip. Either way, you are going to need to upgrade the cyclone feed's internals to keep up with the rate of fire and not turn the cyclone into a blender
