i play broadsword/battleaxe
and
i play left handed
does it affect the sight or the feel/balance/ etc.. of the gun :)
and if it does
what can i do to help change it?

not a totaly newbie
jsut never played with a A5 or any other tippman

ummm if you have to shoot left handed a tippmann might not be a good choice for ya with the cyclone on the right side it will be covering most of your field of view so I'd recommend either firing right handed or using a different marker and yea I am left handed to just right eye dominant

You could get a JT Tac 5. It has an adjustable feed port. You can have it be verticle or angled to the left or right. I am not sure if you can get one e-gripped though.

Also if you are good at machining or know someone good enough you might be able to put the cyclone on the left side. Just a thought.

Here are a few mod shops to inquire at.

not a problem man and using your buddies A5 would be a good way to see how it might work for you.

I'm a lefty - get the A5 - no problem - lefties get less hopper hits.(in theory)

You'll get use to it quick enough.

Oh it happens alright. The hopper blinds you. You just end up holding the marker a bit farther out and in the center of your body. You really do get used to it pretty quick.
