Period of
Product Use:
3 years
3 years
Marker Setup: I use a 14" Smart Parts Tear Drop on my Tippmann model 98. I recently added a custom made drop forward.
Barrel...if you're really into speedball i'd get a electric hopper and a drop forward...
Strengths: Accuracy, easy maintenance, decent price,doesn't chop,durable
Weaknesses: Stock barrel
Review: I got this gun for Christmas two years ago and I didn't ask about or say anything about wanting one...i have always loved paintball though...This gun is awesome...I haven't had a single problem...stock barrel sucks...I'm thinking about getting a Truimph electric hopper for it...but the stock hopper loads fine...I don't like vertical feed so i really like this gun. It shoots nice. It can be a little loud but that doesn't really bother me...mine seems a lot quieter with the Smart Parts barrel. This gun is a must for woods ball! This is a very upgradable gun. I play woods ball probably 75% of the time and it rarely fails me with my SP Teardrop barrel. I don't like how people spend so much money on a gun and use the "spray and Pray" method. My neighbor put a lot of money in his Ion and I can still take him in the woods and on the speedball field. He's a got a Halo B hopper, 16" SP Progressive barrel, remote and other mods and It still doesn't make him a better player. Guns don't make the game unless you're just spraying paint like a chain gun on the speedball field.
Conclusion: Buy it... I recommend this gun to anyone...from beginners to pro's in the sport. The model 98 can either be a woodsball or a speedball gun...depending on how much money you're willing to spend.

It is listed as older because it is the origional model. They made a new model called the 98 Custom. Since that came out, this is considered the old model.

Thanks...I'm not a newb...I just wandered why they would list it as old seeing as that it's not that old...compared to a Brass Eagle Stringray...but I know
