Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
none -- this is my first foray beyond semi auto.
Marker Setup: Qloaded Tippman 98C with ACT
Tapco T6 Stock
Strengths: Variable ROF (up to 15 bps according to the package)
SPPL legal
Weaknesses: None that im aware of yet.
Review: Installation:

First off the instructions included were for an E-frame and not the RT. about 15 minutes of googling and I was in business. The Tippmann website does not have the instructions easily accessible.

It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish to do the installation. It was fairly straightforward but if you're not mechanically inclined I would recommend going to an airsmith. For me installation was smooth and I had no problems.

Performance:

It has its ups and it has its downs.

I love that I can vary the ROF by pressure on the trigger. I am not locked into a certain firing mode. I can fire 1-2 balls or a whole pod of paint without switching modes. Oh and it's SPPL legal for all loader/hopper types. (SPPL limits feeders by ROF if you have an electro)

The only downside I have seen is that under sustained firing the "trigger kick"it gets to your fingers. It isn't bad just an odd feeling.


As for ROF I think the claims of 30-40 bps may be a bit exaggerated. I opened the valve up all the way and did my best to keep a high ROF and emptied a 100 rd Q-pod in about 7-8 seconds, which is about 13-14 ish bps.
**edit**
I wish to revise the ROF, I don't know what I did to make my 98 cycle so fast, but I was able to crank 20-25 bps out of it today, so much better than 15 but still less than 30
Conclusion: All in all though, I would highly recommend this to any players who play SPPL and have high feed rate loaders. Otherwise I would say go for the electronic frame because of the trigger kick. I'm rating this 9 out of 10 because it does a great job for what it's designed for, but there are other solutions that may be better.
