Rap4 Tippmann cyclone feed complete upgrade kit worth it?

I got 2 questions...

I am new to paintball and I just bouight the tippmann A5 gun, and I was wondering 2 things, the most important one for now: What tank should I buy, Co2/ compressed or nitro? and which one would it be the best for my gun... and second: is the Rap4 feeder upgrade kit worth it??

I already have the double trigger and the new e-grip in my gun...

Use CO2, and don't put anything more into your cyclone.
If it's stock, leave it as is.

Not AZN level price, there's not too many electro markers priced at the same level as the Talon.

If you already have a cyclone, the only thing that I would get MIGHT be the soft paddles from TechT...
but that's it...

I would not upgrade any part on the cyclone feed till any of the stock part break.

The biggest thing that you get out of using Compressed Air or CO2 is consistency fro shot to shot and you can play when it colder with out having the problem that happen with CO2.

Also If you desired to get a new gun, alot of the Higher end guns will only work with the Compressed air tanks.

The Rap4 upgrade kit looks like a straight rip off of the TechT Cyclone upgrades. Upgrading your Cyclone will get you better performance and let you take advantage of the higher rates of fire of your Egrip. The only thing to remember is that even fully upgraded the performance of your A5 will never come close to equaling a true high end marker and once your money is spent you could have just bought a better marker anyway. I've said this before but every time you feel like dropping some money on A5 upgrades put that money into a jar instead and save for something better.

Thanks all, I will probably not get the upgrade or the paddles. I will probably get a 68 or 72ci/3000 psi tank and probably the 14" jj ceramic barrel. And if I'll really get into the sport I will save up some money to get a real good marker.
