25 April 2009 - 11:42 PMI would definitely NOT suggest any sort of actual scope. If you put anything on there, go for a red-dot sight. A red-dot combined with a decent barrel and a consistent air source (compressed air, and NOT CO2) is a surefire recipe for putting your first shot where you want it. I have had a red-dot on my A-5 for a while now, and regret all of the time that I played WITHOUT a red-dot sight. Instead of guessing or thinking where your first shot might land, you will KNOW where it is going to land, which is one of the biggest advantages you can have.
25 April 2009 - 11:38 PMIt seems like the general consensus is that 14" is the average maximum length most people prefer. For the first few years that I played paintball I used a 16" barrel on a Tippmann A-5. While it was fairly accurate, I got very tired of constantly hitting my barrel on tree's, limbs, and the ground while sprinting through the woods. Since then, I have switched to a 14" Invert Nightstick (Carbon Fiber) on my A-5 and absolutely it. It's actually more accurate, consistent, and air efficient than my 16" had ever been. Not only that, but the biggest thing is that I don't have issues hitting every object I run by with my barrel. So I guess with all of that said, you know that I am definitely for anything 14" or under.
25 April 2009 - 11:31 PMI have a V-Force Grill and love it. However, I've only used the clear and the smoke lenses. I've pretty much used the clear the entire time, and have nothing but good to say about it. I'm sure that the amber and yellow shades are great for enhancing your ability to pick up movement and pick out shapes better, HOWEVER... It's just my personal preference to use a clear lens. I like being able to see every shape, color, and object for how it really is. Would you be happy with an amber or yellow lens? I'm sure you would. It really all comes down to you and what you want. I'm just giving you my input so that you can make an educated decision on what lens you think will best fit your playing style.
