Products Used:
The Tippman 98 is a nice gun, but at 4 times the price of a Victor II, it doesn't make sense. The Victor II is a great performer versus anything up to $300 guns.
Marker Setup: Spyder Victor II, Modified stock bolt, 3a Knock Out 14" barrel, electric hopper.
Get a new barrel as soon as you can. Accuracy with the stock barrel is fair.
The stock bolt is not bad on this gun....just needs a little home mod.
Get the electric hopper as well. This gun can only shoot as fast as you can pull the trigger so the $29.00 noname is fine.
Strengths: Well made / sturdy
Easy disassembley, maintainance.
Machining and fit is high quality.
Aftermarket parts available.
Weaknesses: Loud, but a new barrel fixes that.
Review: For $59.00 this is the best marker I have ever used.

It is well made, most of the parts are metal. The plastic pistol grip is thick and nicely molded, fits the hand well and makes for steady shooting.

The quality of the craftmanship, milling, and fit are excellent. It looks like a $300 marker.

I was chopping paint about once every 2 or 3 games, but that was before I modded the stock bolt and added a 3a 14" barrel.

I lube with transmission fluid and have had no problems with this gun.

On the field, I do not feel like I am at a disadvantage because I use a Victor II, in fact, my Victor II has stood up very well to every opponent I have faced no matter what marker the opponent had.

I'm very pleased with my Victor II and even more pleased about all the money that is still in my pocket!
Conclusion: Buy the Victor II. It is a steal at $59.00 American.
Buy the Victor II. It is very well made and is mostly metal construction.
Buy the Victor II. It is easy to maintain.
Buy the Victor II. It is easy to modify.
Buy the Victor II. There are millions of aftermarket parts and mods available for this gun.
Buy the Victor II. It will not break your bank.

Buy the Victor II. Period.

2 Qs --
1- why would you put an electro hopper on this gun? doesn't need it.
2- what modification did you do to the stock bolt?

1.yes, if you fire fast itll need it, ive seen people chop with this gun and a standard hopper due to fast firing can sand the edges, and polish it to get better performance

actually, you can buy a 98c for about $140, i have even seen them go as low as $125 at a local collectors store, and yes they were brand new and in the box.

The SP ion is a 300 dollar gun and this is nowhere near its level of performance.
