Found a couple for sale at a place near me.

No problems withe stock hopper other than it's a bit bulky. Swapped out the paddles in the cyclone. For the recreational play we do, they work great. But always looking for a better barrel. We've got several fields here, but Paintball Explosion and CPX are the biggies, with several big games throughout the year. We usually go to a couple, but those are just killer on paint costs. Only thing I hate about the game. Love Capture the Flag, but really it comes down to the last two minutes. We put together a coordinated attack today at the end after being down most of the game and won. But we'll opt for the 15-20 minute games and rotate fields usually when given the option.
Yeah, the whisper. It was a Christmas present. If you want a good barrel, get a flatline. Big money, but worth it. They put a backspin on the ball, making it fly flat until it slows down. Then it actually goes UP, then drops to the ground. It increases range significantly. When viewed from the guy getting shot at, it looks like the ball is going much faster because it doesn't drop in elevation.

The a5 doesn't need a power feed because it already feeds the ball with the revolver deal thing.

220hp from a 400 cubic inch engine? The 2.5 liter (~150ci) in my sentra put out 175hp when it was stock; of course, there is MUCH less room for improvment through modification. SE-R doesn't draw the womenz like a classic muscle mass.

in 1978 in an American car, that was pretty much king of the hill in the HP department. sad, very sad. Pontiac in the late 70's was pretty much the last holdout in the HP game in the American market.

Don't forget "safety" features not required elsewhere; remember those crazy bumpers. Of course, it was FOOG, of course.
