A5 Internal Upgrades

Basically I am just wondering which are worth it and which are not.

I just purchased a nice looking A5, already has a freak bored barrel, a tac cap, and a weaver rail w/ red dot, but as far as I know the internals are entirely stock. I already plan to pick up the squishy paddles for the cyclone feed, but what else would you guys recommend?

NOTE: This is my first Tippmann since I started playing with a project salvo and I remember very little about the internals and the cyclone feed and stuff like that so if you are explaining something (anything) overexplaining it wont offend me.

So run it entirely stock? Don't even bother with the squishy paddles? The guys I know personally that run A5s have always told me "if you can only get one upgrade for your A5 get the squishy paddles"

techt is your friend as far as cyclone upgrades go .......but not always 100% reliable , my up'd techt cyclone went down on me at a big game - tippmann was there and replaced the parts with stock ones and i was back up and in the game in under 5 minuites - and had no problems the rest of the day .... i took home the techt one and sold it off and have been running the stock one with squishy paddles ever since .....

From what I've read the paddles and ratchet are worth it. None of the internal upgrades seem to offer any kind of noticable gains.

People speak highly of polishing the shells though. I'm in the same boat as you, just grabbed a really cheap a5 from ebay. The polishing is the only "upgrade" I think I'll do internally.
