i just bought a new tippmann A-5, and I ordered an e-grip, and a flatline. When I started shooting 3 ball bursts, the balls started to break one after another. Is it because I use cheap paint?

Flatlines generally don't care for out of round, weak, or sometimes cheap, paint. Try a normal barrel, or try a different brand.

That said, some people have had great results with paint that most of us would call cheap.

Try different paint like torch suggested. Also, check to make sure that there isnt a nasty peice of dirt inside the barrel. What FPS are you shooting at?

Also, where in your gun are the balls breaking? Check to see if they are breaking in the breach or in the barrel itself.

I don't think there are any electro hoppers for the A-5....

propbably cheap paint. A-5's have cyclone feeds which will feed as fast as you shoot.
