02 February 2008 - 07:40 PMLooks nice! I just bought a T9 Elite myself, although I ditched most of the add ons and am using it as a pistol more often than not.
I find the T9 to be more accurate than my (stock) A5 or X7. With my Freak and Apex, my Tippys win hands down. But comparing stock markers, the T9 is one of the better one's you can buy.
Personally, I think the set up in your pic looks ok. I agree with getting rid of the red/green scope and upgrading to a larger one instead.
14 November 2007 - 03:23 PMAgain, thanks, DVLCHLD. I appreciate the advice. I've looked at the Pathfinder on pbreviews and it got half decent reviews. In your opinion, is it a keeper once modded with the Apex? I could buy a Freak kit and an All American, but that's about 200 dollars here and I just dropped 2k on paintball gear over the past 4 months, so the wife will kill me if I buy something else without good reason.
31 October 2007 - 04:30 PMFor Milsim, I've seen RAM (http://www.apsram-usa.com) pistols that look so real I honestly can't tell the difference between a marker and the real thing at anything over more than a couple of feet. Beautiful looking pistols, but I've never fired one, so I can't comment on the quality. They are expensive too, being between 200 and 300 USD a piece.
If anyone knows of how well they work, let me know. I'm interested in purchasing some for my brigade.
31 October 2007 - 09:52 AMI have an A5 and have had a ton of trouble with it. I know that the A5 is an awesome marker, but I had problems with keeping velocity up (turns out it was an issue with my stock), as well as getting my flatline tuned. I know you can argue that these issues are all with add ons, but I only use Tippmann mods which are designed for the A5 exclusively and still had problems. My friends with A5s have had no problems whatsoever.
This leads me to my question of the week. In a moment of weakness, I bought a X7 with an Egrip. I can't really afford both markers, and although I really wanted a long gun as well as a CQB set up, I am wondering if I should get rid of one or not. I love the X7, as I love the Milsim aspect and I find that X7 mods blend more seamlessly into the marker than do A5 ones. Also, being able to change firing modes on the fly is an awesome feature--going from semi to full auto with a flick of the switch is very cool. But, my problems with my A5 aside, I trust the A5 as a solid marker. My question is this? Which of the two should I keep? Ultimately, I know I'm making that decision myself, but I would appreciate any insight into that decision.
Hopefully, I'll be able to keep both markers. But, I suspect I've spent about 2k on paintballs, gear and mods in the past few months, and am tapped out.
22 October 2007 - 06:38 PMThanks, lads, the ideas worked! I took off all the mods save the flatline and the BT stock. Still had velocity issues, with a max velocity of 200 fps. I took the stock off and chrono'd again--even with the flatline I was firing over 300! I dropped it back to about 270 and for the first time since I bought my flatline I never had a ball break. I really appreciate the help. I suspect I'll be returning the stock and getting a CAR stock instead. I may pick up an Apex kit just to try it out, but I'm happy with the flatline now.
