Strengths: Not too loud, light, good handles and grips, shoots alot, doesn't waste much air
Weaknesses: Alot of $, horrible accuracy, uses up paintballs
Review: I went to LVP 3 times and this was the gun I used, they gave you tis gun to use. Its crappy. This gun is alot of money...I'm talkin' $150-200 and not worth the money. Save up! I bought a $80 gun from Walmart thats better than this, Triton II, its not THAT bad, but just not worth the time :0
Conclusion: Good gun for practicing or messing around, horrible for normal play. Its alot of money and not worth it. Dont buy it. I got it as a rental and hated it. Your sure to lose with this gun unless everyone else is using the same thing

Dude... rental guns that are improperly maintained regaurdless of make fail after a long enough period of time.

In truth, tippmann 98's are bad with air, are inacurate and slow, easy to maintain, simple and are great guns to build on and they can become exceptional.

It is not a great gun but I wouldn't go that far as to say a Wal-mart gun is better. You used a rental gun, which is going to suck. Using someone else 98C wh actually owns it will be much better because they are probably going to be better maintained.

Well i think your starting out on a bad foot here. This gun isn't that bad. You said it uses alot of paint, well 6bps is definately not alot of paint.........And the inacuracy issue, well it does have an 8 inch stock barrel.....what do you expect........and loud....well.....know one really cares about that. The point is this gun is basicly meant for woodsball, and shooting fast isn't always key in woodsball, it's alot of strategy, and as far as cost goes, I got mine for $130, and I think it was money well spent, because I wasn't looking for something outrageously fast, and i liked woodsball from when I rented Tippmanns before, it's good for messing around with like you said, but it's evan better for woodsball, Tippmann is the leading woodsball industry, most all Tippmann owners play woodsball. Plus Tippmanns are the most upgradeable gun on the market, so it can be made into an instrument of high fire power and great accuracy. And you know most rental guns get beat and take ware and tear for long periods of usage, If you ever used a Tippmann product that someone actually owned, you might think of it a bit more higly than the rental that you previously used. Take into consideration that the place you were playing may not have propely taken care of all the rented guns. So that is just me adding in my two cents about what I have to say about Tippmann products, I think they are great and I love them. Triton II is a pretty good begginner gun also just like Tippmanns, but it is up to you and your opinion to which one you really think is better. You will probably chose Triton II of course because everyone likes their gun more than anyone else's. Well I know I will stick with my 98 Custom for quite a wile before upgrading to something better, just because of the fact that it works well and easily maintained. Well I just wanted to give you a few facts and maybe you'd reconsider what you said about them before, and maybe you could give them another try and review the things the comments have told you compared to your strengths and weaknesses in your review.
