Products Used:
Spyder Electra, Spyder E-99
Marker Setup: Tippman 98c w/ RT Dye Stainless Steel 12inch Richoket 2k Hopper
Strengths: This upgrade will improve your Tippman's ability to perform on the field 200%%. Honestly lets face it, paintballs are in noway accurate unless you have a complete sniper set up. The RT makes your 98 keep up with all those fancy new electro's that have been coming out lately. And absolutely nothing is better than seeing those guys with cockers and angels at the field start running for cover when you unload on them with your 98.
Weaknesses: I personally had some trouble installing the RT kit, some people say it only takes 10-15 mins which is true if you have the right tools. I however did not and I had to wait about 2 weeks for a friend of mine with the right tools to do it for me.

Also if you have a stock barrel, you'll need a new one obviously. More balls mean more break chances, and breaking in a game is unacceptable. So get yourself a stainless or a boomstick or a teardrop and your ready to rock.
Conclusion: The RT is WELL WORTH its cost. Any 98 owner that doesn't have one is not giving their gun its full potential. Also many people say that you must have a agitated hopper to use the RT, this is not correct. If you see above I do have a Rickohet 2K but i only bought it because it looks really badass. I played with my RT for 3 months before I got the new hopper, and broke like 1 out of 2500 rounds.
10 out of 10

I am thinking of purchasing a RT for my gun... I am just nervious because i dont want it to break alot of paint! right now my gun never breaks paint, and i dont want that to change. But i do want the speed of my balls to come out quicker and faster. Does the RT require better paint and does it break more balls?
