Products Used:
Tippmann 98 Custom
Marker Setup: (MAIN)
Tippmann 98 Custom
Flatline barrel; Commando Stock; Cyclone Feed Adapter; Double Trigger Kit, 32 Degrees Coiled Remote w/ Slide Check
Tippmann 98 Custom Platinum Edition ACT (digital woodland camo)
Smartparts Progressive Barrel; Cyclone Feed Adapter; Double Trigger Kit; Response Trigger Kit; Ultimate Fusion Designs Coiled Remote w/ Slide Check
Top on the list of upgrades is a new barrel, the redesigned barrel is really no better than the previous version's
Personally I recommend the Cyclone Feed Adapter for and 98 model Tippmann
Strengths: Power Tube is ready for response trigger and cyclone upgrades, rail system
Weaknesses: Stock barrel, power tube comes loose a little too easy (IMHO)
Review: Purchased the new 98 Custom Platinum as a primary marker for my girlfriend, and as a secondary for myself.

The Good:
Ready to upgrade with air powered accessories
Rail System for mil-sim upgrades.
ACT system
Sling loop built into the end cap
Front sight spring is securely in place and no longer flies out
The ASA no longer needs loosening before disassembling the receiver

The Bad:
Stock barrel

The Ugly:
Nothing really, pretty good.
Conclusion: A great start-up to moderate experience marker. It also should revitalize the market for 98 custom upgrades and mods for those who just wont shell out the cash for a new A-5 or myself HA!
If only Tippmann would include a decent stock barrel, but then I guess they wouldn't be able to sell their 98 Custom PRO editions...
8 out of 10

I don't think it's fair for you to penalize the whole marker and it's rating simply because it came with a stock barrel. Technically the barrel is better because it now comes with a matte black finish which eliminates the old crumby situation of people seeing the glare off the barrel.
