The Tippmann E-trigger is an electronic trigger that aids firing. With a Tippmann Cyclone feed for the 98 C or a Halo hopper, the E-Trigger will work well but withought them it will chop balls like crazy. This is a god mod for people who want their 98c/Pro to fire faster and own the compatition. The downside is with the E-trigger, you will go through paint and CO2 like crazy burning a hole in your wallet. But for those who have the cash to spend on paint and Co2 this is a good mod to purchase. The price is also pretty cheap for a electronic trigger since you dont also have to buy a grip as well. Changing the battery is as easy as pulling the trigger.
Tippmann 98 custom, seclusion 3D camo on gun, collapsable stock, e trigger, cyclone feed, flatline, expansion chamber
Easy to ramp
Tricky install if the inside isnt cut out
I got this e triger for christmas. I went to the workbench and started to install it. The direction were self forward and the pictures on it helped alot. I had a little trouble fitting the battery in but i got it in ok. It took me a couple of hours but it was worth it. If i were you i would let a paintball shop install it for you because it would be way easier. I havent shot any paint with it but it works and you can still fire it without co2 or paint. so hopefully i will shred up my woodsball competition this summer. All in all this is probably the best upgrade i have gotten. BUY IT!
Buy this, i love it. Installation wasnt the hard. If you have an older 98 custom then have someone else do it because it probably doesnt have the cut outs for it. This is one of the best upgrades out fro the 98. So have fun with this becasue it is really sweet!

Manual hard to understand how to program at first
At first glance I didn't know what to expect from the E-Trigger. The Tippmann website says it's fires 15-17bps, but with the programming feature you can set it pretty high. I had mine set at 22bps and I emptied an entire hopper, no chops, and no misfires. I was worried that the Tippman mechanics themselves, like the bolt and springs, wouldn't keep up with the trigger. It performed beautifully. I haven't tried it yet, but I think the max setting is somewhere around 30 bps.
Make sure you have a hopper that can keep up with it or you may have some misfires or ball chops. With my Rip Clip and the Tippmann's Anti Chop Technology, it's a perfect match. I haven't encountered any problems yet with the ball chop or mis-feeds.
The programming can be tricky at first. There are 4 settings that you can program:
1)Dwell - Time the Solenoid is Active
2)Debounce - time the trigger has to be stable before registering another pull
3)ROF - Rate of Fire (Balls per Second)
4)Firing Mode - (This wasn't really explained in the manual, I had to figure it out) - This feature lets you choose which of the 5 firing modes you want the marker to default to when you turn the E-Trigger On. So instead of defaulting to Semi-Auto, you can default to 3 round burst Ramping. It's nice when playing speed ball; less time to mess with the trigger.
All of the settings apply to every firing mode. You can't program seperate things for each individual mode.
All together this is a great purchase. You'll finally stand a chance at speedball and your woodsball friends with terrified haha. Once you get used to the programming features, it's a very simple trigger to use, just doesn't have anything fancy to it. I would recommend this to any Tippmann owner. It unlocks the true potential of the 98c. Just make sure you have a good hopper to keep up! =)
