Paintball
Experience:
2 years
Similar
Products Used:
Model 98 is the only gun that I have tryed that shoots like the Pro-Carbine and go figure they are both made by Tippmann :-)
Marker Setup: 1.) Brass Eagle: TigerShark - Tightened the trigger, custom ported the barel(Hand drill)
2.) Tippmann: Pro Carbine - Lightened the tigger pull, custom made stock, silencer, laser sight w/toggle switch inside the fore-girp, and quiter hammer. All in all a snipers dream.
Recommended
Upgrades:
-Stock
-I found the stock barrel became more accurate if you cover the porting.
-Some sort a sight; laser, red dot, scope
-Remote (espicaly if you have a stock)
Strengths: -Durablity
-Accurate out of the box
-Never breaks balls
-650-700 shots on a 12oz
Weaknesses: -The stock hammer is loud (easliy fixed)
- Rate of fire
Review: Good Points:
-Never Breaks balls:
I only broke one ball and that was beacause I uncocked it then recocked it thus leaving two balls in the barrel.

-Durablity:
I admit that I have hardly swamn through a swamp but I think if I did the gun, with a quick shake, would fire. It never miss fired or didn't shoot and when you do shot it feels like the difference between closing a door on a GMC compared to a Toyota.(Toyota doors don't shake the whole car!) Also the nearly the whole gun is metal!

Accurate:
I think that the stock barrel is more than accurate enough for me.

Co2 Usage:
The Pro Carbine has great Co2 qualities. I get 600 shots easy off a 12oz.

Bad Points:

Noise:
The stock hammer is rather loud but is easly fixed by getting a mouse pad and cutting a circle of the the foam and putting a hole in the middle then putting on the valve face.

Rate of Fire:
I play the sniper role in paintball so rate of fire is really not a problem for me but I guess one could, if they want, put the response tigger in the gun. I find I'm able to get about 4-6 bps.
Conclusion: I think this gun has to be the best gun for me out there. I think anyone would be happy with this gun.

all barrels are less accurate if you cover the porting.

you think the pro/carbine sucks your using a Spyder e99, one of the most unreliable, inaccurate, short ranged guns ive ever used.

A pro/carbine shooting 7bps will easily eliminate you and your spyder shooting 14 bps from twice the distance.

Hmmm... my P/C and my 68-carbine w/Cyclone both shoot around 15bps and last I checked it owns all Spyders, Cockers,.... wait... it owns all you guys with your shiny guns! Sorry, better luck next time!

Mann get a tippmann an autococker and a spyder on a woodsball feild and the spyder just plain doesnt work right of the bat. Then the tippmann player kills the autococker player. On a speedball feild same thing happens to the spyder but I'd say a cocker wins
