The stock trigger on the Tippmann 98 Custom, in my opinion, is nothing compared to the double trigger kit in the ways of rate of fire. Other then that, this double trigger kit is pretty similar to other kits.
Strengths: -Improved rate of fire
-Quite comfortable
-Easy to install
Weaknesses: -Interferes with the safety mechanism
Review: Let me begin by saying the Tippmann 98 Custom, stock, is a fairly good entry level marker. But as with anything, improvements can be made. The double trigger kit is a recommended upgrade because it will help you improve your rate of fire (it helped me a little anyways), makes it a bit more comfortable to hold, and, in my opinion, makes the 98 Custom look more like a paintball marker then some twisted kind of militaristic weapon.

There are some disadvantages, though. One of them was when I installed the kit it messed up my safety. After installing the kit, the safety became inefficient, and if you pulled the trigger with it on hard enough, it would sometimes fire a paintball, (in other words the safety wasn't reliable at all, and, after all, you should never rely just on the safety of your marker, always use a barrel plug/condom!!) and after about 5 months use, the safety became absolutely useless.
Conclusion: I would recommend this kit to the random hero that wants to upgrade his Tippmann a little bit. The double trigger, in my opinion, is a great improvement to the 98 Custom, and I think it will definetly help your game. However, nothing is perfect, and there are some problems involved.
