My tip: if you're running an R/T with a Cyclone Feed, you NEED a Vortex Ratchet. When using both together, you're operating very close to the bare minimum needed for the Cyclone to work properly. When the pressure starts to drop, you will quickly run into a sticky mess. The Vortex ratchet halves the operating pressure and will keep you running just fine.

nice post.

As for changing out the tubing as suggested by Tom, i have heard this will also increase your max bps when sweet spoted, fact or myth dont know but thats just what i heard.

and yes, i love my r/t, while in the sweet spot i am able to empty an entire hopper in one long burst, so yeah the r/t does come in handy. And yes you will need a good hopper to keep up with your r/t, personally i use my halo and everything is fine and dandy.

So a vortex ratchet will cut the amount of air used in half? What does it look like and do you think my paintball store would sell it for my A-5?

Tuning your R/T:

Now you want to shoot ropes? Sure thing. All you have to do is slowly pull the trigger whilst turning the screw.


Hate to sound like the total n00b, but u talking about the velocity adjustment?

"First lets make sure your RT is in proper working condition. Gas up your gun. Turn the RT adjustment all the way counter-clockwise until it stops. Fire your gun one or two times. This should make your trigger VERY hard to pull, this insures you that your RT is working correctly with no leaks."

you have to turn it all the way clockwise to check that its working properly with no leaks. not counter clockwise.
