Exclamation What should I do?

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?

Feet per second. You use a chronograph to check it, any field will have one set up.

Check your hopper thing and make sure it is working. Make sure you are using somewhat good paint such as premiums.

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

Try turning your veloicity down a bit. Also try a different paint like Draxxus.

Also you didnt mention what kind of hopper you are using. If its a gravity hopper most likely you are chopping.

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