OakvillePB Monday, June 1st, 2009
Period of
Product Use:
2 years
2 years
Products Used:
Tippmann 98 Custom (Rental)
Marker Setup: Spyder Pilot or Sonix
Modded Viewloader Force Eyes or VL200 gravity feed.
16" 2 piece Evil Barrel
20 oz CO2
No current mods on the markers, soon to come though.
New barrel. The stock one just doesn't get it done with the accuracy.
There isn't really any need for an electronic hopper, I really only have one for the Pilot. You won't outshoot a gravity feed hopper with the Sonix.
Strengths: Very Reliable
Efficient air system
Very little chopping
Weaknesses: Accuracy, though a better barrel solves this.
Review: Honestly, a very good starter gun IMO. For 130 bucks I got the Sonix, 12 oz CO2 tank, goggles, and a gravity hopper. Everything you really need to start playing. It was the first gun I bought, and a still go back to it every once in a while. Very reliable backup if your regular marker stops working (i.e. my Pilot dying randomly). I think in the two years I've had it I have chopped maybe 3 balls. The only true downside is the barrel, but that can be solved with a quick trip to your local paintball outlet or ebay. Another thing: You may have to clip the spring when you first get it, because most indoor fields I know of limit you at 250 fps. I was up to about 320fps, and me being an idiot decided to let the ref have a go with it. He tried to unscrew the velocity adjuster, stripping it in the process, with me still shooting 300 or so. I then clipped the spring a little and ended up at 230 and in need of a new adjuster. Thats the only real mechanical flaw in it.
Conclusion: You get what you pay for. Reliable, good starting gun. Enough said.

Overall: 9 - Simply for the barrel.
9 out of 10
