Question Question. Upgrade first? Cyclone or Internals?

Hey guys, I just got a Tippmann a5 (b5 mod), and had some questions regarding the barrel already have, and what to upgrade first?

What I have now:

Endgame compression Barrel- How does this rate overall as a barrel? It seems fancy, but I don't know how well this actually will help.

Tippman Low Pressure Kit (Regulator and Ex. chamber) - Do I need to upgrade this any further?

Now my question is, what should I upgrade first. I put the upgrades in 2 packages...

Cyclone Package:

Ratchet Kit v3.0 Metal Upgrade Set (Teflon coated aluminum)
Rap4 Quick Exhaust Piston Housing (both forward and back ports)
Rap4 Connecting Rod(aluminum)
Cyclone Feed Soft Paddles
Aluminum Reset Rod
Tac-Cap Hopper

Price: $55 New

Internals Package
JCS Red Hot Power Tube
Rufus Dawg Wicked Bolt
TechT Zero Kick Hammer

Price: $104 New

What I am looking for is primarily no chops, and the price of the cyclone kit sounds REALY good, so please let me know what you guys would recommend.

my suggestion is to buy a standard forcefed hopper that'll work on any marker.

In all honesty, I wouldn't bother spending much money on a tippman other than a new barrel.(the hopper I'm suggesting obviously does not count since it'll work on anything)

Standard hopper won't work because it's an A5. The B5 mod comes with the APE board so definitely upgrade the Cyclone the APE board can outshoot the stock Cyclone. Don't even bother with the other upgrades the bolt won't do anything and the only reason to ever replace your powertube is if it is broken.

the rap4 upgrades for the cyclone are ****.... get the techt upgrades more expensive but a million times better, also i'd recommend the shocktech supafly bolt over the rufus dawg one, much better quality

Will any of those internals increase the number of balls per co2 tank?

The TechT Cyclone upgrades will let the Cyclone operate at a slightly lower pressure so you will get a few extra shots per tank but there isn't much you can do to make a Tippmann more efficient.

Don't worry about the power tube as much as the cyclone. upgrade it as much as possible. The go with the superfly bolt. I would have to agree about the TechT stuff. It is bullet proof and I have used all of their parts for a long time with no problem. The only things I don't have by them is the fang trigger and the no kick hammer. I'm sure that should help a lot for the a-5. I think i will go with the rhythm innovations pro trigger system. I have the JCS adjustable trigger and it works very good and I have the TechT pin kit. Together they rock.
