Review: on ebay i ordered cyclone feed for my 98 the month it came out. when it got to my house, the first thing i did was take off my old hopper and put the cyclone feed on, first thing i noticed was the flatline shroud was perventing it from fitting. i went in my garage and cut the flatline shroud a little bit to make it fit, it did. since i allready had RT, i called tippmann and asked to send me the special T-fitting. when that came to my house i pulled the air hose out of the old RT fitting, and cut the air hose on the cyclone feed. i hooked up both hoses to the T-fitting, fired the gun and it worked great. It kept up great with my RT. a couple days later, when i went woodsballing i had no jams. with my old gravity feed hopper i had to allways hit it to make it feed the balls into the chamber. (anyone with RT and a gravity feed hopper will know what im talking about). Cyclone feed uses no bateries so you dont have to worry about the batteries running out of power. cyclone feed works better on my 98 than my eggy did. and i got cyclone feed for only $50. Dont get cyclone feed if you shoot lefty because the wide mouth hopper will block your view. also since the cyclone feed hopper has a flat front so balls will allmost allways break when you get hit in the hopper.
Conclusion: If you are thinking about getting a electronic hopper for your 98, dont, this will work alot better.

What is a "T-fitting?

It is the special fitting that is required when you are using a cyclone and a response trigger together. Otherwise, only one of the two will be able to use your excess air, and only one will work.
