Review: The Tippmann M98 is by far the best entry level marker on the market today. It's built tough to handle anything an inexperianced player could throw at it. Because of this, many paintball fields today use this marker as its rental model. For example, I work at Rush Paintball in Poughkeepsie, NY (shameless plug) and we use tippmann 98s as our rental. One day the sliding door on our supply van wouldn't close, so we used a tippmann m98 to hammer it closed. THE MARKER WORKED GOOD AS NEW AFTERWARDS! In addition to its sheer duribility, the M98 is easy to take care of and clean (just lube it up and hose it off), its line of upgrades is unending, and it has the ability to keep up with markers 5X its cost.

However, the M98 does have its drawbacks. It's stock barrel is terrible, and with out a drop forward, its really long.
Conclusion: If your new to paintball and want a reliable marker to get you started, or your a veteran whose looking for a rock solid backup, the Tippmann M98 is for you!
