Products Used:
Nothing. this was my first marker.
Marker Setup: Tippman 98 custom platinum series w/ACT
J&J 14 inch barrel
RT (response trigger)

14 inch barrel and nothing more. 14 inches is maximum peak of power and after that u lose accuracy but only increase distance in which paintball goes.
new hopper
optional- response trigger to drastically increase bps
Strengths: Great Price
Easy to clean
Easy to upgrade

Weaknesses: Kind of loud
If you have the response trigger you go through CO2 like crazy
Review: i started paintballing in January of '09.i have only used the tippman. i just recently put in a response trigger on my gun and it was working like a charm. i once shot a friends ego and it worked the exact same. it shot paintballs, had great accuracy, and is about 2200 dollars cheaper than my friends ego. 4-26-09 i went out to my local predator paintball park to play for the day. adn the first game of the day was the airball field. we played 5 on 5.i was on a team with 4 other people who were using rental tippmans. on the other team a dude all dressed up and had a high end gun looked my team and said to his we got this. they all have rental guns and the one guy who doesnt has a tippman. then he said this will be over in a minute. i laughed to myself and went to my side. we started off and i thought everyone on their team ran to the left side so i was going to run up the right. i ran up the right and i saw a guy in the very back behind a bunker. i kept running while shooting and when i got to the right of that bunker i saw the other 4 and unloaded on them. the game was over within 45 seconds. the 3 refs and the owner were standing there and they said "Holy Crap.' One of the refs said to the guy who dissed me " Dude Chris you just got murdered by that guy you dissed. and you have a freakin dye. you dissapoint me." this just goes to show that you can have the fanciest equipment on the market but that doesnt mean you are good. anyone can shoot a gun but it takes marksmanship to hit something. a tippman is good for experienced and novice players.
Conclusion: i highly recommend this product because it works like a charm after minor upgrades. you will shoot much better after getting a 40 dollar 14 inch J&J barrel. easy to use, easy to clean and just overall fun to shoot. always look on the bright side of things. most people cant afford high priced guns so they buy the lower end ones like i did. using tippman saves paintballs compared to those high end guns where people unload a case of paint like its nothing. remember this u can be facing someone and all it takes to win is one shot. not 200. remember that when shooting it will save you money.
10 out of 10
