Review: If i say something in this review thats negative towards the 98C dont take it as me trying to make the gun look bad or something. I am a spyder user and all but i dont have anything against the gun like many other spyder users.

With that said, here goes nothing.

STRENGTHS

Extremely durable- You could run this gun over with your car, throw it, kick it, and you may be able to play under water with this thing.... the point im making is that it can take a beating and will perform how it did the day you got it.

Reliability- This goes along with durability, this gun doesnt just break down for some random reason.

Simple- Easy to clean, easy to fix, easy to use.

Woodsball- Its flat black, thats what you want if your in the woods.

WEAKNESSES

this is where im gonna get flamed but this is all true no matter what anyone has to say.

Low BPS- This is the case for all mech. blowbacks. The gun is simply slow. Good for woods, but its definantly a gun you dont want to get into a firefight against a electro pnuematic with.

Inconsistancy- This gun has no Reg or expansion chamber. Therefore, its inaccurate due to inconsistant amounts of air being used between shots.

This isnt really a weekness about performance, its just something i hate about tippies. I hate going to the speed ball arena and seeing 24685354643 people using tippies. So if your a owner and you have one your not going to be differant or unique in anyway. Some people most likely dont care about that, but personally i like to have something nobody has or seen before.
Conclusion: So in the end if you play woodsball or you are new and you want a gun thats not going to fall apart i recommend getting this gun. If you play speedball or just want something alittle faster id say get a imagine for the same price.
(it seems to me that when the gun was designed to was meant for the woods)

If i were you i would not get an imagine over this for any reason. About everything he said is correct and well said. Replace the trigger spring with a pen spring and cut it to size, you will be able to fire alot faster and easier trigger pull. The gun isn't consistant unit the temperature outside is in the 65-80 range. O, i like ur use of random numbers :)

The whole Spyder vs tippmann is kinda all personal preferance, some people want spyders, some people want tippies. Im not gonna sit here and compare and say what i like better because im sick of reading reviews that just flame one or the other. But, thanks for leaving a comment that was accually informational instead of some tippmann fan that flames me becuase i didnt give a 10 for the score.
