The 98E is 98 Custom with GTA accessories. For those interested in an electronic gun, the 98E comes equipped with the extremely popular E Bolt electronic sytem. With variable bursts patterns and fully auto capabilities, this is one of the most diverse electronic kits on the market. Included in the 98E, is the Double Trigger system. This insures lighter trigger pull for extended use without fatigue. Topped off with the 14" sniper barrel, the accuracy is improved to new heights, which is ideal for tournament play.
The Tippmann Proshop 98 E is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
model 98 with e-bolt
dye sticky grips
12 volt revy
tippmann low pressure kit with palmer reg.
3000/68 pmi carbon fiber tank with dye cover
tippmann double trigger kit
I've noticed improvement with all, but would say the boomer and 12v revy are a must to get the full benefit of the e-bolt.
mega kick butt fast
dosn't break allot of ball's
easy 2 install
made by tippmann 4 tippmann (super rad tech support)
it's a 98 on crack, turbo: put fear into the hearts of those with cocker's.
adjustable light trigger pull
I have yet 2 find anything bad with the e-bolt. I guess for those that don't have great jobs it is a little pricey.
the electronics r hard 2 get at 2 switch modes(grip must b removed)
If you have a 98 custom and want to make your gun into a cool sleeper, get the kit. If your new 2 the sport u may not b supper accurate, but with this kit u can spray and pray. This really can make those with the thousand dollar cocker's mad when their offed by a guy with "just 98 custom"

if you're lookin for a good fast reliable gun, buy it!!!!!!!!! U wont regret it
Was'd impulse- better
Tippmann A5 w/egrip- just as good
Spyder with CAMD- not as good
Silver 98 custom
Tippmann Low Pressure Kit
Ballistic Sports Blade Trigger
Smart Parts Freak Barrel
Crossfire 114/30 tank
Lots and Lots of MODS
Fires almost as fast as a high-end electro
Eliminates some of the blowback
Doesnt fire as fast as some of the Really high end electros
When i first bought this product, i didnt know what to expect. I had heard mixed reviews here on pbreview.com. With those thoughts in care, i ordered it. It didnt take long to get here, but it seemed so because i was so excited to install it. When it finally arrived, i took it out of its package and read the instructions. It was farley simple to install, but the wires got in the way a little. After a day of play, i found the ebolt on/off switch to be loose, and the gun not functioning correctly. I took it apart and i found a broken switch and disconnected wires. I dont know why the switch broke, but i had not installed the wires to where they wouldnt get squashed by the other reciever. A quick trip to radio shack fixed the problem, but im just glad i know how to sauder. This turned out to be an overall great product, and i recommend it to all those who play or plan to play tournament paintball.
I just hope the equalizer board or a new aftermarket board comes out soon.
This is a great product by tippmann. It will transform a low-end tippmann to a high end electro. Install with care.
This is a great product, but the wires were a problem in the begginning, so i give it a 9
9 out of 10

98c with 14inch sniper barrel ebolt kit, psychobalistics drop forward. halo feeder.
new barrel, fast hopper.
it makes the tippmann incredibly fast. its trigger pull is a microswitch and is adjustable. its feel is similar to a mouse click, and is comparabe to the impulse and busmasters. it uses a pneumatic ram contolled by a 2 way solenoid which is regulated by a LPR which taps gas from the tank instead of a heavy hammer to hit the valve pin. the lpr is adjustable and if you have a lp kit it is highly possible that you will be able to get this thing to bounce off paint. altho i dont have on and cant experiment this... yet...
its quite expensive the cheapest i found it for is for 205. but most places you find it it will be 240. unless you have a halo or warp. the ebolt is so fast the blow back cuases the thing to chop. and since it dosetn use any blow back gas to push the hammer back when you do chop there is a chance that the forward bolt will jam in the barrel. and you wll have to slighty unscreew the barrel to unjam it.
very good upgrade for people that arent ready to give up their 98cs yet. i recomend it for people with cash to burn only. i give it a 10 becuase it is the best most well designed and most effective upgradde for the 98c, cost not being a factor
Standard 98 Custom
Kingman Spyder e-99
98 Custom w/ E-Bolt, Ballistic Sports Drop Forward, GTA Double Trigger, Tippmann Raised Sight Rail (chrome, just for looks), 14" Custom Products Barrel, Dye Sticky Grips, Empire Reloader
Custom Products barrel (light, quiet, and accurate)
Crossfire nitro tank with blue regulator
Quiet, accurate, and fast
Most tanks are preset at 800 psi. This gives you a minimum fps of 275
A must have for all position players. This marker honestly out-shoots all paintball guns except for the highest end markers (Angel and Intimidator). Making the gun pnuematic makes it quieter than the standard 98 Custom. It is marketed that it shoots at 13 bps. On a fresh battery, you shoot about 15 bps. My only real complant about this marker is that it has a longer distance between trigger and the foregrip than must guns do. This balances the weight nicely, but it sometimes leads to bizarre shooting positions.
This may be the best marker under $1000. I highly recommend it for both novice and experienced players.
Even though this is electronic, it's very easy to keep clean and basically take care of. It's not like all of the other electro markers. They're all very compilcated and most of the time you have to take them to a pro-shop to get them fixed. But the Tippman 98-E, you can take it aprart and put it back together in no time.
The only thing that I dont like about this gun is the length. It's very long. Depending on the nitro you have, it can get very heavy. Some people like heavy guns, but I dont.
Overall this is an excellent gun. I've used better, but for the price and just being a tippman, it's worth the money. I would highly recommend getting this gun as soon as you can get it. The only problem is, is that not a lot of places carry it. You'll probbaly have to buy the 98 Custom and put the upgrades on ur self.
tippmann 98 custom e " custom with double trigger ebolt tippmann gta dropforward and tippmann gta 14" sniper barrell"
maybe a flatline expansion chamber and a stock
very fast shot
easy trigger pull
and excelent accuracy
could be a little more powerful
needs better accuracy
i have only played two games with this gun but i will tell u this i feel that in any game whether it be against an a-5 or and auto cocker the 98 custom e could kick the best guns asses this gun is amazing i nailed one of my aponents in the head while he was behind a bail of hay from about 75 yards away. so i have said it once and i'll say it again this gun in my personall opinion beats even the most expensive cockers or bushys on the market.
if u have $1,000 to spend on a gun buy this gun and spend the other 500 on paint and maybe a nitro setup.
I have 2:
Tippmann 98 w/ E-Bolt, 14" Nite Stikk barrel.
KAPP Flame Cocker with Boomstick.
new barrel, I suggest Nite Stikk, Boomy, or tear drop
faster loader, i suggest evlution
Fast, accurate, dosen't break alot of pballs, by Tippmann.... reliable gun, 7 firing modes
bit heavy with tank, paintballs and hopper.
This gun is as good as an Autococker. It's fast, looks mean. To be honest with you, I like this better than my cocker. The 7 firing modes and the mean look is what got my attention. The 7 modes are semi, reactive,turbo, full auto, 3 shot burst, 5 shot burst, and user programmable. You can alwaysexpect something from Tippmann to blow you away, like Cyclone Feed System, E-Bolt. This gun is a really good gun, I have never broken a paintball in this gun. This gun is good for anybody. You all know Tippmann makes reliable, durable guns and equipment, except the people who think Angels and Spyders are, because I don't think that. I have broken about 11 paintballs in 2 games with my cocker and haven't broken one in my Tippy. I use Diablo, RPS, and Nelson paint. I don't like Spyders or Angels but I like everything else....except BE.
I reccomen this to any paintballer that has played for quite a while. This is a great gun. Maybe the price is a bit high ( 200-400 dollars) but its cheaper than some cockers and believe me I like the 98 EBolt better.
7 Firing Modes
Tippmann made it.
This gun is awesome. It's selection of firing modes is out of this world.
Semi Auto- One shot per trigger pull
Reactive-Fires on trigger pull and release
Turbo- Starts out as Semi Auto then when fired 5 shots or more it switches to full-auto.
Full Auto- Fires until trigger is released.
3 Shot Burst- Fires 3 shots in one trigger pull.
5 Shot Burst- Fires 5 shots in one trigger pull.
User Programmable- Capable of firing 13 shots in one trigger pull.
Is that great or what??????
This gun is definatly worth $400. Get it. 7 Firing modes to choose from. Tippmann has created a monster.
