The electric kit is a drop-in kit for the 98 custom. This kit provides you with a light trigger pull, an adjustable rate of fire and uses common 9-volt batteries. The electric kit uses an electronic control board that controls a solenoid valve and cylinder to trip the sear. After being inactive for 30 seconds it will go into sleep mode with an instant awake on the first trigger pull. This means no more dead batteries because you forgot to turn the marker off. The battery is a common 9-volt that is located outside the grip for easy battery changes with no disassemble.
This item is no longer in production!
The Tippmann Electronic Seer Kit is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
cM98, e-bolt kit, J&J 12 full tilt, Double trigger, Dropforward, Expansion chamber, 12 oz CO2, Ricochet2k hopper, alot of 2 9v batteries.
This is the best upgrade you can put into your c98. It improves your rate of fire greatly. You don't even need all the other modes. But it gives your the option to use them. My favorite is the turbo mode. Especially if you want to use your response mode for feilds that only allow semi. It goes from semi imediatly into response mode.
7 features but only 1 is mainly allowed of feilds (not bad because you'll be shooting fast enough on semi). The pools (circular units on the board to change ROF) are solf rubber and if your don't use a really small screw driver they shred. everything else is great. Batteries become a problem but i've used mine for playing on the weekends and and i haven't drained it yet. you'll probably drain your hoppers before you drain your guns. :)
SIMPLY PUT: IF YOU DON"T HAVE THIS YOUR MISSING OUT ON THE FULL EFECTS OF A TIPPMANN.
The RT trigger can shoot approx. 25 balls per second in burst of .5 to 4 seconds. At slower rates it's far more stable. The electronic trigger ALWAYS fires at the selected rate. Either 6, 8 or 10 rounds/sec.- continuously.
Flatline, Compressed air, Revolution X board hopper.
Very light and fast trigger pull in semi-auto. With this kit, the trigger is only used to make a microswitch. Can be made to feel like a mouse click!
In full auto, holding the trigger down will fire a hail of paint with ease- exactly 10 balls per second until the hopper is out of paint.
Tippman will install at no charge.
Cost $240. A lot of people feel your cheating when you use full auto. Make sure you can use at your field. I use a LOT a paint when in auto. Went from 500 to 1500 per day. Wears out the sear to bolt catch faster.
Took me 90 minutes to install. Requires a pin punch to knock out some plates and a Dremel tool or a lot of filing. Its a tight fit. The wires, piston and board are difficult to pack in the grip. - Have Tippman install 4 free.
It does what it should and does it well, so I'll give it a 9. For me, it's not worth $240. The stock Tippman 98 has a light enough of a trigger.
The full auto and burst features are fun, (if your target shooting at trees) but are not for a fair, team game.
I have this kit installed on my model 98custom with the lp kit, freak barrel, and 12v hopper. the kit works good. lots of choices of fire(better than ebolt system). also works with lp kit(ebolt doesn't)
chops paint when set on 10rds sec with 12v revy.
overall good product, might not chop paint with powerfeed, but can't use red dot sight with powerfeed installed. works well when set to 7rds sec or any other setting
Tippmann 98 Custom w/ Flatline and electronic seer kit
Extreme increase in fire rate
Shorter trigger pull
HARD TO INSTALL!!!!
Well I've had this re-installed in my gun on numerous occasions and to this day it still does not work. Installation is a B*%$#. Once you buy this product, make sure to send it and your parts to the Tippmann Proshop. But when it works, it is heavenly. Just to have that ability of the disstance of the flatline and a higher rate of fire makes it a perfect st up for back players.
It's great for an upgrade, buut be ready to spend about a week, before you can use you gun again.
ok, here is an update. Broke the trigger microswitch this weekend. Called tippmann and they said they will either refund the money or exchange the sear kit for the ebolt kit. They now say the ebolt kit will work with the lp kit. I like the model 98 so I will go with the ebolt kit.
sear tripper kit is hard to install. I have played with it for three weekends and it has broke each weekend.
If you want an electronic model 98 go with the ebolt system. It is supposed to work with or without the lp kit
