there has bin a hand full of players that bring up the (performance) of the markers that they rate i find it funny in so many way,

performance
The way in which someone or something functions: The pilot rated the airplane's performance in high winds.

so in what world can some one rate a paintball marker on performance when every marker in the world
shots the same speed and distance the only thing that could be rated for performance is the grip frames and the air system you use on your marker but that the only thing that makes a different on a paintball marker

a stock a5 is no different then a high end marker
the only differents is price

so for all them guys that think that one marker will out perform another marker
is crazy

Weight, kick, cyclic speed, "gentleness" on paint, and efficiency all also factor into performance.

The A5 will not shoot as brittle a paint as say a DM10 without breaking some of the paint in the breach.
The A5 will not be able to shoot as fast as a DM10 without an eframe.
The A5 has WAY more kick than a DM10.
The A5 weighs more than a DM10
The A5 is slightly less efficient than a DM10.

Therefore, yes, the DM10 is in almost every way a higher performance marker.

That's like saying that because the speed limit is 55, the performance between a Lamborghini Murcielago and a Kia Rondo are the same when driven legally. Sure, they both are able to do 55, and turn, so they're the same performance. There's more to performance than just accuracy and velocity.

my a5 has never choped a ball in it life, so iam not sure what to say about that
my a5 might not be able to shot faster the dm10 with a good grip frame,but i really only need 3 good shot to get some one out.
my a5 i guess has kick but its more like a tickle ,so..............
my a5 weight is way more for sure then a dm10,i hang drywall all day for a living i could carry 3 of my a5s and it wouldnt effect me (my a5 isnt a cinder brick is a a5).
my a5 is sightly less efficient then a dm10 but no less better.

You have apparently only shot think rec paint.

Though you only need one shot to get someone out, a higher rate of fire increases your chances. To my knowledge Tippy e-grips are unadjustable in terms of fps and they don't have an OLED screen.

Maybe because you've strapped 4lbs. of useless plastic and metal onto it. If you shot a high end, you would realize your marker has a lot of kick.

Try sprinting 40yds with all your gear, then try it with a tournemant setup. You'll be faster every time with the tournemant setup.

Slightly? A DM10 can get about 1300 shots off a 68/45. An Ego 10 can get about 1700 shots off a 68/45. After break in and a good tuning some poppits can get over a case off a 68/45. Your A5 can get about 1000 shots off a 68/45 before the cyclone stops feeding.
