Review: First off I’d like to say, this is a complete game changer for a Tippmann player. This trigger if installed correctly will put a model 98 A.C.T custom over ALOT of other competitive electronic markers. (In woodsball particularly for durability), a Tippmann is TOO Heavy to be a top competitor in speed/hyper ball. I’m going to try to explain what this trigger actually does.

This trigger has two “Trigger placement” screws and one “switch placement” screw or so I like to call them. The trigger placement screws allow you decreased the amount of travel between you first pulling the trigger and the trigger going back as far as it can go. Think of it as running from one side of a square room to another. The smaller the room, the faster you should be able to touch the opposite side. Same concept applies here. The switch placement screw allows you to set the actual switch position during that trigger travel. If there was a button in the room, the switch placement is where the button would be between the opposite walls of the room. My trigger is set so right when I slightly pull, the switch activates. Right after it activates, the post travel screw stops the trigger (actually I took the post screw out, the back end of the trigger housing stops my trigger, same difference…..). This minimizes the amount of time it takes for the firing mechanisms of your gun to reset which leads to less trigger walk interrupts and allows you to walk at a faster rate. I was WALKING around 13, I can probably push my tippmann close to 18 bps for a SPILT second (walking in woodsball is usually a complete waste, I focus on getting as many balls out there before my target can react, not painting whatever they are behind...)

The only downside to this trigger is the lack of adhesives needed for the screws to stay in place. When I first opened up the package and took the screws out, I noticed that the screws were loose. These screws need to be locked in or in my case, tightly fitted. I used Teflon tape to tighten the screws a bit and I have absolutely no problem. I would not recommend using anything that locks the screw due to the fact that it doesn’t give you the ability to adjust the screws at will. One other thing is the possible malfunction of the safety switch…You can either custom the switch(easy) or leave it out like me. (so I can adjust the top screw at any time…).
Conclusion: Most likely will be become a necessity to any serious woodsball player with a 98(even non electro) and field auto restrictions. This trigger is an awesome addition to your already great marker. The price is a bit steep, but innovation costs at times =). Be sure to get a hopper to support this trigger, your need it! 9/10 until Todd(owner) starts shipping this trigger with some sort of adhesive for the screws.
