New to paintballing info needed for A-5

I'm going to end up getting the Kingman Spyder Sonix Value Pack (wal-mart) I figure its good for a starter kit?

Later I'll buy a better gun. I'll be mostly playing woodsball and I want a milsim gun, I was going for the T68 but I hear their not very good so my next choice is a tippmans A-5, is it a good gun and will it hold its own at woodsball?

While I'm on subject if I get this gun what upgrades should I consider getting or not? I know I don't need the 3 round burst, fully auto but I want to get it just for the fun of it, long as it doesn't cause degrade in performance.

The A-5 is the definition of a woods ball gun. If it can't hold its own in the woods, then no gun can.

Yes, the A-5 is a good woodsball gun.The SP-8 is even better, but you need nitrogen for it.

You should search this site. You'll be amazed at what you can find out here with a little effort. As for the A-5 and speedball...NOT!

The A-5 will rape almost any gun in the woods, that is a definite good buy. I may be getting one myself pretty soon.

Its funny how when you ask for info on an A-5, people will still try to push other guns on you.

Its an immaculate woodsball gun. It will do a whole lot more than hold its own

Very good to know, I have nothing but woods around my house and at the nearest field theirs 2 speed ball fields and 12 woodsball so it works out perfect it even looks sweet not to mention the kits you can get for it.

I have a A5 for cheap if your looking at getting one sometime soon. Pm me if you want more info. Also I used mine for both woods and speedball and it worked awesome. But I think it is deffinatley the king of the woods.

mr-1s are alright but what i would have done is just get a custom pro and forget about the a-5 or the spyder
