The FANG Trigger is the highest quality, best feeling trigger available for Tippmann 98's, 98 Customs, and the new 98 Custom Pro E's.
The trigger has been designed to work on all models of Tippmann 98's from the old to the new.
The Fang will work on all mechanical 98's as well as the electronic models.
When designing the Fang our goal was to:
1. Make a trigger that works on all 98's.
2. One that would make the 98's trigger pull as smooth and fast as any Angel, Timmy, or Shocker.
As with all of our products, this trigger was designed to be the highest performing trigger on the market. We feel confident that we achieved that goal because the Fang is the smoothest, fastest, best feeling, and sexiest Tippmann 98 trigger available.
The Fang triggers are three point adjustable, and allow for the shortest trigger pull possible. Walking the trigger will be easier than ever before.
No other Tippmann 98 trigger offers this level of control or adjustability.
You will be able to fine tune your mechanical and electronic trigger pull to be shorter than you ever thought possible.
The TechT Fang Trigger is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Some flaws on mechanic Tippmann 98 (see review), no trigger guard included,
I got 2 Fang triggers for my two Tippmann 98C. one is electric (E-Bolt) and one is mecanic.
First the mecanic one:
The silver coloured Fang Trigger looks awesome on a black Tippmann 98 Custom!
The Fang Trigger works very well on my T98 (newer Version). I can achieve high fire rates and never feeled like I would need a response trigger. I had to do some milling and drilling before that was the case. The Trigger had a too small hole diameter at the big hole that limits the trigger movement. Therefore it could not release the sear. I wanted to tune the mech trigger anyway and drilled it out untill it worked. This problem may also been caused by the high tolerances that Tippmanns normally have. There are some sharp edges on the fang Trigger which cause the Trigger to move tight. I milled some of them only a little bit and achieved perfect smooth movement. The Fang Trigger is not slippery like the original Tippmann Triggers but this is also a reason of the tolerances in the marker case and not so much caused by the triggers itself.
I used a washer on one of the pins and got almost 0% clearance (make sure the washer does not interfere with the hammer or hammer seal). This is something that you should try out yourself and sometimes it is better if a mechanic marker has some clearances.
Another thing that I am not very happy about is that Tech-T did not drill a hole for the second trigger return slide dowel pin (the small pins that are installed inside the original Tippmann trigger, I use the same term as you can find in the Tippmann manual Item Nr. 98-18 , 98-19 on newer Manuals).
In the mechanic Tippmann the lower slider pin actually serves as a bearing for the slider and makes it smooth-moving. The slider is pushed forward by the sear if you cock your marker not releasing the trigger. After releasing the trigger you can hear a "klick" that is caused by the trigger return slide moving back to its original position. Your Tippmann is always operating in this way because you cannot release the trigger before the sear locks the hammer. The slider movement is not as smoth with the Fang Trigger and what I don't like on my mech marker is something moving stiff. The pair of a small, spring loaded steel surface moving on anodized alloy is rather bad. So far my mech Tippmann with the Fang trigger works fine but I am planning to drill a hole that let me install the second dowel pin and get rid of that stiffy moving return slider.
The Fang trigger receives a 7,5 Rating for mech application.
The Fang Trigger on electric T98C:
This is the reference trigger for electrified Tippmanns. There was no milling necessary to make it move smooth. May be my older Tippmann has different clearances in the case. The Fang trigger is produced under very close tolerances in comparisation to the Tippmann die cast marker shells.
Since the trigger return slide is not moving in the electric Tippmanns (older and newer versions) there is no problem with the missing dowel pin in this application.
The Fang feels perfect for "walking" and can be tuned to the same movement that your microswitch has. Everyone who triggered my Tippmann is impressed about the Trigger.
I give the Fang trigger a 10 rating for electric T98C application.
For both triggers:
the adjusting options are nice but I dont like to stick this small pins or set screws into my marker especially into the power tube. This is not a good solution because it may damage your marker. You have to use locktite to prevent the set screws coming loose. I prefferred to tune the Trigger using nylon screws and changed the spring to a magnetic return.
Tech-T now offers a set of different pins for Trigger tuning which is a very clean way to get the best out of this well crafted trigger without messing around with setscrews which can come loose and/or damage your marker.
Very sad that they do not offer any kind of trigger guard. I had to purchase a crappy Tippmann Double Trigger because of that so the price is Fang Trigger + Tippmann trigger.
Rating: (7,5+10) / 2=8,75 >>>> 9 Points
PS: Sorry for my English. I try my best.
I recommend this trigger as the best for Tippmann 98 with E-Kit (E-Bolt or Sear Tipper). It is durable and perfect for "walking" e-markers. In mech markers it still needs some tuning but everyone who want to tune a Tippmann should have some craftmann skills. The Fang Trigger is the best starting basis to do a trigger job on mech Tippmans for people like me who don't like the Response Trigger.
I will upload pictures soon.

This trigger is crazy good!! It looks awesome and helps your 98C shoot A LOT faster! Works really well with the cyclone feed system. Haven't run into any problems, even using the pen spring mod, it doesn't feel weird. If your tired of the stock single trigger pick up this beast.
If you want a double trigger, go with with this one.

I hated the stock Tippmann double trigger because of the sloppy side to side motion and the contoured for two fingers trigger. I went looking for a all metal trigger and found the Fang trigger. The price was very reasonable compared to similar triggers. I was pleasently suprised at the quality of the trigger when recieved. I noticed the 2 set adjustment screws, the bottom one was useless to me so I just took it out. The top one actually strikes the e-trigger. After the first use I noticed how it moved inward on its own and was sticking. A little bit of blue loctite fixed that and its been good ever since. I used it at first with my stock Custom Pro then upgraded to the e-trigger. It worked excellent stock and really shined with the e-trigger. I think the pull is right on and love it. It also got rid of the slop of the stock trigger. I highly recommend this as a great upgrade to any tippmann.
I highly recommend this product because of the quality of workmanship and how well it works with my gun. They should include a recommendation on using loctite on the little set screws since they can easily be lost if they come out. Plus it isn't a weak plastic trigger.

Ability to set pre/post fire travel and set switch activatation point. Reduction in wobbling.
CAN NOT effectively use out of the box.
First off I’d like to say, this is a complete game changer for a Tippmann player. This trigger if installed correctly will put a model 98 A.C.T custom over ALOT of other competitive electronic markers. (In woodsball particularly for durability), a Tippmann is TOO Heavy to be a top competitor in speed/hyper ball. I’m going to try to explain what this trigger actually does.
This trigger has two “Trigger placement” screws and one “switch placement” screw or so I like to call them. The trigger placement screws allow you decreased the amount of travel between you first pulling the trigger and the trigger going back as far as it can go. Think of it as running from one side of a square room to another. The smaller the room, the faster you should be able to touch the opposite side. Same concept applies here. The switch placement screw allows you to set the actual switch position during that trigger travel. If there was a button in the room, the switch placement is where the button would be between the opposite walls of the room. My trigger is set so right when I slightly pull, the switch activates. Right after it activates, the post travel screw stops the trigger (actually I took the post screw out, the back end of the trigger housing stops my trigger, same difference…..). This minimizes the amount of time it takes for the firing mechanisms of your gun to reset which leads to less trigger walk interrupts and allows you to walk at a faster rate. I was WALKING around 13, I can probably push my tippmann close to 18 bps for a SPILT second (walking in woodsball is usually a complete waste, I focus on getting as many balls out there before my target can react, not painting whatever they are behind...)
The only downside to this trigger is the lack of adhesives needed for the screws to stay in place. When I first opened up the package and took the screws out, I noticed that the screws were loose. These screws need to be locked in or in my case, tightly fitted. I used Teflon tape to tighten the screws a bit and I have absolutely no problem. I would not recommend using anything that locks the screw due to the fact that it doesn’t give you the ability to adjust the screws at will. One other thing is the possible malfunction of the safety switch…You can either custom the switch(easy) or leave it out like me. (so I can adjust the top screw at any time…).
Most likely will be become a necessity to any serious woodsball player with a 98(even non electro) and field auto restrictions. This trigger is an awesome addition to your already great marker. The price is a bit steep, but innovation costs at times =). Be sure to get a hopper to support this trigger, your need it! 9/10 until Todd(owner) starts shipping this trigger with some sort of adhesive for the screws.

I, like many others, hated the feel of the Tippmann Double trigger so I took action. After reading nothing but good reviews, I went online and bought this. I adjusted the trigger so it was VERY short and light. I took it out to test fire some shots and accidentaly put my 98 on full auto. The trigger stuck the switch down, resulting in $4.22 in CO2 to go up in smoke, and it wore out my drive spring, resulting in massive shoot down. I now have made the trigger pull very long, killing the point of the new trigger. I still like the feel of the trigger, but it still isn't as short as my liking.
::EDIT:: I adjusted some of the settings on the board and it made this trigger work like a dream, I was shooting ropes with my Tippmann 98 Custom, it was unbelievable
::EDIT 2:: Use common sense when adjusting this trigger and it will work wonders. Do the pen spring mod and its almost as good as a speedball guns trigger.
Overall good trigger, but don't set it too short unless you like dryfires.
7 out of 10 because of the full auto incedent caused by the trigger
EDIT: 8 of 10 much better trigger when you have the board set up right. Great for rope shooting and semi auto
EDIT 2: Use this with the pen spring mod and its pretty sweet. 9.

$35 For a trigger is a little high but not too much.
i bought this trigger because i was feeling spendy. i put it on when i got here and it was very light, very comfortable, and it matched the flat black i painted my 98. this trigger reminds me of the UL frame trigger but feel the fang trigger may be slightly more comfortable. im keeping my tippy mechanical so i cant tell you what its like on an egrip but i feel this may help even without electronics.

This is an excellent trigger. I have looked at pics and reviews of other 98c double triggers, and none really allow you to even get close to walking the trigger. After installing this on my gun, I don't even think I'll need an Egrip or RT on my 98 now. Also, this trigger is made of metal, unlike most other 98 triggers, including the stock one. Right out of the box, the Fang fit my 98c perfectly, and there was no grip cutting required for the trigger guard to fit, unlike many other 98c double triggers. I was eager to gas it up and see how it fired. Once I did, I was amazed at how fast I could fire compared to the stock trigger.The pen spring mod to lighten the trigger pull helped immensely, and so far has stood up to an outing's worth of hard play and a lot of target practice. I keep an extra just in case though. However this trigger has some downfalls. First of all, there are no instructions in the box, nor is there any indication that the instructions are available online, but I found them after 5min with a search engine. The trigger guard is sold separately, costing you another $13. Also, some people may need custom milling for it to fit their guns. Some people may not like a light trigger pull as they use more paint, but if you weren't looking for increasing ROF for your 98, why did you buy this trigger?
Overall, if you want to get more ROF out of your 98c, or just get a more durable trigger, buy this. It is infinitely better than the stock trigger

See review on weaknesses---\/
After using the double trigger, i decided i like the Tech-T after reading the great reviews on it.
Its made of metal(aluminum or something like that)
its flat, sleek and very light.
trigger works very well with the E-trigger, and very customizable.
-> there are 3 screws. one at the top for height(i think..)
one in the middle to adjust how far you have to pull it,
and the screw on the bottom, which i took out, since it just seemed to get in the way.
the trigger is very durable, and because of its construction allows for very high ROF's
the middle screw likes to move out of position when rocking the trigger, and so i would suggest using loctite or similar to keep the screw from moving when its being used.
You also have to buy the double trigger to get the guard for the trigger. i was lucky, and was able to get the guard in a set with the tech-t i bought on a auction site. for very cheap. so that saved the hassle of buying 2 separate things.
Its a great trigger for the price i got it for. worth the money buying from a store as well, but the double trigger guard not coming with it is a problem.
overall i give it an 8. because of the screws and the trigger guard. if it wasnt for the guard it would have been a 10.

Easy installation , solid material, great trigger
Hard to make trigger pull short, a little pricey
i recently bought a 98 custom pro. When i first used the double trigger i thought it was the best. i then realized that the trigger was made of cheap material ( not to beat on tippys , i love them ) and wobbled a lot. i then started looking for a better trigger. after a little searching i found the fang trigger. i realized it was a little pricey. once it came in the mail, i spent only ten minutes installing. as soon as i was done i tested it out , it was awesome ! i love it ! highly recommended !
I highly recommended this trigger, although a little pricey well worth the money !

Best trigger out there for e grips
None, except for that screw that makes no sense
I just got this trigger and my e grip today. Took about 10 minutes to install both. The trigger is super sturdy, dead on and doesn't wobble. As i said before the screw closest to the bottom was useless for me. I suggest putting loctite on the center one(the one that actually touches the solenoid on an e grip). The very top one i never tinkered with. I just kind of screwed it in there. There trigger has a very light light light light pull. I recently did the pen spring thingy and that may be why it's so light. So i never got to test it with the stock tippmann spring. So i can bias an opinion on that. With my e grip on semi auto i have the trigger set to where you can damn near blow on it to set it off. My ROF is limited at 30 BPS which is obviously what the gun maxes out at, i definitely don't think i've come close to that on semi auto, i may have been somewhere along the lines of twenty. If you have an e grip turn your debounce down to .10ms it really goes alot faster. I've shot a hella lot of speedball guns and this trigger is just as light as all of them, no sense in buying a 500$ gun when you can easily upgrage you 98 like this.
If you have an e grip then definitely for sure get this, it's well made, cool looking and super effecient
