dude, if u paintball like 1nce a week or more, GET THE A5!!!
i was a good paintballer, i was about 2 get cocker but then iread about tippmann a5's, the a5 is the best gun for the price!!!
but if ur beginning, get the 98 pro, u dont want a way god 1st gun, because you cant use it to ur advantage, my 1st gun was a VL tried, ROFL, worst gun ever!!! well it was accurate with the 14 in barrel, lol, i shot my friend in the elbow, he still got the scare for 2 yeras ago,
