sorry this post was made by a friend but still feel free to suggest...we think we ordered a flatline, stock, and remote, and response trigger, but would a e-grip make any difference for him?

do you want to shoot faster?

yes.
would it make a big enough difference to my friends A-5 with an auto response trigger to buy it?

I'm guessing that it'll be used for woods, hence the remote and stock.

Flatlines are kinda iffy, IMO. They can be very picky about paint, and if you get a break in the barrel then they're a pain in the ass to clean. I'd personally get a 14" J&J or Lapco Bigshot over the Flatline. Sure, the flatline gets you a lot more range, but you're sacrificing accuracy for it, and from what I've heard they can be kinda inconsistent in their groupings.

As for R/T vs E-grip:
An R/T will give you an auto-like effect, with the marker still saying as a "one-pull-one-shot" marker. However, some fields don't allow R/Ts, so in those you'd have to disable the R/T. An R/T won't let you walk or pull the trigger any faster, but you'll be able to fire in bursts.
An E-Grip, being an electronic trigger, will allow you to walk a fair bit faster than a stock trigger or R/T will. It also comes with a number of other fire modes, such as burst, auto, turbo and responce (or is it rebound?). Most fields don't allow auto and the like, so IMO, they aren't much use. Also, the downside of an E-Grip is that they rely on batteries to work, which is the one thing that's turned me off them. I'd personally rather have something that's fully mechanical (even if it's a bit slower) over something that uses batteries (one less thing that you have to worry about running out of, and one less expence).

So an R/T lets you have an auto-like burst, but not all fields allow it, while an E-Grip allows you to walk a lot faster than stock, but needs batteries.

Scrap the flatline, just get a nice 14 inch. The RT has worked fine for me in woodsball but if you want speed your going to have to go for something else.
