Review: I bought the 98 Custom Pro w/ RT about 6 months ago. I have only used it in one battle with my friend. He had a 98 custom with the flatline and a stock. mine was completely stock but i also had the flatline. The flatlines really sucked. I know that they are supposed to be used with good quality paint. We were using Wal-Mart brands. (Scorch and Wild Streak) But, in the end I was the winner. Even though both our barrels were covered in paint. This gun performed great when i was using it. I only had one problem with it. Sometimes when i shoot it fast for a while, i would have to pull the trigger thing again to begin shooting, but this rarely happens. Also the response trigger is so FAST.
The stock 11" barrel is also very accurate.
Conclusion: Overall i would recommend this gun to anyone. This is good for all types of players, can be upgraded to fit your needs. It also beats installing the RT on your gun.

ummmm...that lil prob you had when you shoot your gun really fast and then stop and you would have to recock it....i had to do that with my 98 custom....and all of my friends did basicly i think your gun is getting used to shoot really fast...

To lil marine hey man you will sometimes have to recock your gun, but if it happends often it could be that the velocity needs sdjustment i have this gun and with a little tinkerin with it this rarely happens. Plus if your shooting really fast then try short to medium bursts it will save ammo c02 and the hastle of recocking your gun and getting hit try it it works. lol itll scare em still though thats what counts lol.

Y dont you guys just fork over for nitrogen. It costs less in the long run, more shots, better shots, and it doesnt dammage your gun like co2. And yes the flatline is a sucky barrel. the only good thing I got out of it was the squeegee
