05 Speed or A1

I am looking for a newer angel. Which should I get; an 05 Speed or an A1?

You might want to consider something in between. The G7 Fly gives you a great balance between reliability and weight, and the trigger is amazing.

But between the 05 Speed and A1....the 05 Speed is way heavier and they feel bulky to me. The trigger isn't quite as nice IMO but it's probably going to be more reliable than the A1, unless the A1 has the newest fly parts. The 05 speed also gives you the option of using the 90 degree frame.

Myself, I'd rather have the A1, and I'd go for the A1 without giving 05 Speed any consideration.

Got the A1.
Thought parts might be a little easier to get.
Thanks for the advice.

Somewhat. I had one of the original A1's and it had a valve leak. I tried to get a new valve stem but I couldn't find one anywhere since it had been replaced by the magno valve. My only option was to wait for old stock to appear somewhere, find one used, or buy the $70 magno valve.

So if I go looking for part what should I get for inventory? Can I get a magna valve? What about the rebuild-able valves?

Would the fly parts be better and are they interchangeable?

Thanks
DS

Go to pbsports.com
They have great deals. Buy the magno valve and elite stem. Problem solved. Might leak slightly until break in. Should have bought a g7 fly. I've owned several of each. G7 series is the only one I'd buy now. Besides an LCD if I did not need eyes.

Is this the kit I need?

Angel Marker Upgrades

Do I need a ram also?

Angel AR:K & Fly SB STR Ram

G7 fly was not an option for me at the time.
I will look around and see if i run across one to give it a try.
