I took my cyclone feeder off my A5 last Saturday, replaced it with the force products elbow and stuck my rotor on it. Holy crap what an awsome difference when I was at the field that day. I've never had so much fun with it in the 8 yrs I've had it. The elbow slimed it down considerably, I could shoot some fairly brittle paint out if it (as opposed to the blender that was on it prior). Don't get me wrong I love to use my Geo but having the useable sight to line up a few shots when I was hidden in the woods was great and no bulky hopper to stick out of bunkers. I know there's a lot of die hard cyclone fans but I must say even with squishy paddles and other upgrades to my cyclone feeder this was by far the best experience I've had with using a Tippmann marker. The only issue I had was when the rotor jammed and stopped feeding causing the bolt to slice a ball in the breech, but what do you expect with no eyes. In short for anyone looking for something different to try with their A5 I defiantly think its worth the $35 so long as you have some sort of force feed hopper. For anyone about to say I essentially turned it into a 98 that's not entirely true. The 98's elbow sticks out farther than this and I think the over all feel of the A5 is much nicer in the hands than the 98. Also, I hate the sight on the 98; I know they are similar but I just hate it for some reason.

I did the same thing a while back. I love it. Works great with a primo too. My main reason for it was I LOVE my carbine and wanted a similar feel and bolt out back maintenance with the ability to run a Flatline. A5 is now exactly the way I want it and its even lost some weight too when running a primo loader. Such am effective woods tool now I love this thing. I also have a Lapco 8" apex barrel for it I use sometimes but the Flatline seems to have a bit more reach and is soo much easier to aim and put balls on target, and that flat out trajectory is soooooooo nice in low ceiling enviros.
