Review: Okay loader, shot it in my backyard the day I got it. No problems, took it up north one day and broke a ball inside the loader where the ball enters the gun. Major mess, pain in the ass to clean. Gun wouldn't shoot balls out until I took out a piece of jammed shell. I'm going to play saturday with this hopper so I'll see how it all goes. The loader does usually send in a round without problems and I couldn't outshoot it, but that time when a ball broke got me kind of shook up. It could have been because I was using old paint and a high velocity but who knows.

I also got considerably poor air efficiency with this. I used to be able to fire about 800 rounds with a 12 oz. CO2 and when I was up north I got about 300 rounds out of it. The tempterature was a bit cooler than when I usually play but it was still a low amount of shots for one fill.

I installed it on my Custom Pro and didn't even have to take the gun apart.
I just took 2 screws out of the elbow feeder, pounded the elbow off towards to the back of the gun with a screwdriver and hammer, then put the Cyclone on, took off a side screw and attached one that came with the kit and hooked that screw to the tube. (screw has a valve sticking out of it's side)
Conclusion: If you have 98 and you dont want your gravity hopper this might not be a bad choice.

Incredible the number of people that do not understand that the Cyclone and RT both use exhaust gas. Neither of these upgrades will decrease the number of balls you can shoot on a tank since they use only exhaust gas.

I know that's what the box says, but until you've actually used one multiple times you will notice there is a sharp contrast between the number of shots that can be fired with and without the Cyclone. You are an idiot, I bet you don't even have one of these.

I have the cyclone and response trigger installed and there is a considerable difference in the amount of gas used. I called tippmann and they even told me that it will use more gas with those two accessories installed. I only get bout 750 shots with a 20 oz tank now.

I do have a cyclone feed, and there is NO difference in the amount of air consumed! I would recommend an e-trigger over a response trigger if you have a cyclone.
