Just wanted to add that if you upgrade with the whole TechT cyclone kit it will help alot. Mine is set around 25bps and it holds tourny paint pretty well. Just don't put to big of a pin under the sear if you buy the hair pin kit. It will cause the hammer not to lock sometimes and then you have created a high priced version of a spray can! Good luck to ya.The squishy paddles will help cut down on the breaks in the Cyclone. Unfortunately the A5 itself is very rough on paint so even with the softer paddles you aren't going to be able to shoot the really brittle tournament stuff.
