The accuracy of this review is disputed. Please see discussion below.
Period of
Product Use:
2 years2 of 4 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
'98 custom , A -5 , some x-7 tests
Marker Setup: tippmann pro-carbine
after-market barrel
Strengths: Reliable
light even with paint and air
easy to maintain
Weaknesses: Not many mods .
Heavy trigger pull but that can be fixed.
Review: I first used this gun when my '98 broke down on the field some one said why don't you just barrow one of the pro/carbines . now over the years I had come to look down on those who used the carbine . it wasn't fully automatic , it wasn't a mod-out gun what you saw was what you got . Boy was I in for a surprise . the gun came with an after-market barrel . I took it out on the field and played one gane and came back liking the gun some what . the next game was the same way . that day I cut my paint consumption in half and more than doubled my kills .
Now , I maintain the theory that its not the gun , but the person that makes the player , but in this case the gun helped . alot .
Now two years later I'm rolling in with my pro / carbine and the younger players always look down on me and my carbine . That is until the first game . then loathing turns to fear .
Conclusion: its light and easy to use . you almost never get any problems out of the gun and I haven't yet seen this guns equal. buy it
10 out of 10

This is a review for a pro carbine, not a pro lite.

they're the same thing . the only thing different is the air through grip . If you don't believe me open them up .

They are almost the same thing, but the pro carbine has the CVX valve like the model 98's have.
