The Ebolt (electro-pneumatic conversion kit) uses a electronic control board that controls a solenoid valve. The solenoid valve operates a pneumatic hammer that opens and closes the valve. After being inactive for 10 minutes the system will go into sleep mode, with an instant awake on the first pull of hte trigger. The Ebolt has the following burst patterns: Response: fires on the pull and the release of the trigger Full Auto: 4 to 13 shots per second Turbo: starts as Semi Auto, goes to response mode as trigger speed increase past 5 times per sec. Burst Mode 1= 3 shot bursts Burst Mode 2= 6 shot bursts.
The Tippmann E-Bolt Kit is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
98 custom, lp kit with reg. , ebolt, double trigger,flatline, physco drop forward, lapco power feed,macro line kit hpa 4500/91 cu tank
speed easy to use
battery wires can get pinched in between receiver halves
this is by far the best up grade for the 98c. the awesome fire power provided by the ebolt is well worth the money. its very very fast. you will need a 12volt revy at least to keep up with it. a halo would be better. its better to use it with nitro than co2. the ebolt shoots so fast the co2 cant expand fast enough to keep a consistent velocity. i use it with my flatline and nitro set up it is truly great. it is as fast as any gun out there and at much less expanse, with the flatline this set up will compete with any of those over priced markers out there( cockers, angles, bushmasters, mags, ect..) check ebay you can usually get a ebolt kit for about $150
this is a great up grade for the 98 custom becarful of those battery wires they can get cought in the receiver halves and get broken. i did this and had to send my gun back to tippmann to get it fixed.( they did it for free :~)
Model 98 E-bolt system-low pressure kit, freak barrel, gen-x reg
2001 STO Autococker
Green to Yellow fade Intimidator
Runs at a very low pressure (150 psi w/upgrades), very fast, never breaks balls (i broke about 3 balls after 1 year of use), nothing has ever gone wrong with it because it is made of quality durable parts
gun is heavy and has a very "plain" look to it
difficult to maintain because the gun splits in to two parts but are still connected with cords
The E-Bolt system is a moderately priced electro gun with good speed and consistancy. These guns are very reliable and accurate. I recommend the e-bolt because of it's various modes and rates of fire opposed to electros with only semi-auto/turbo.
-doesn't chop balls
-Smotth trigger pull
-it an electric kit put on a classic gun that's kicks booty
-Colbalt, U need to buy one of these, Joe
Nothing at all, I mean U can't be as rough with it as I can with my Woods one but for speedball this is great, I Have taken so much crap at fields about how crappy a tippmann is from guys with angels and E-mags, they can whine all they want, I got both of those dikes out one game
Tippman 98 Custom...E-bolt...14 Inch All-american... double trigger... drop forward(soon)... Revolution
fast, Tippmann reliable, 6 modes of fire, competes with high end electros, little trigger pull
money, cant run on CO2(i had compressed when i bought)
I have been playing paintball for 7 years now and i have had the tippmann model 98 for like 4. I traded it with a friend for a Custom 98 recently because i want the ebolt. let me tell you, this is the best upgrade i have ever seen for a gun. It turns the 98 from an industry standard into a high quality gun. It still has the tippmann reliability and doesnt break. This means you dont have to fix your gun in every recycle or staging time :). ITs fairly simple to do it... its basically drop in... took me about 45 minutes. It has 6 firing modes... Semi, Full-auto, 3 and 6 round bursts, Turbo (If the trigger is pulled more than 5 times a sec than a ball is shot on the pull and release) and response(shoots on pull and release of trigger unless is pulled and held for 1/2 a sec). Can shoot between i believe 5-13 bps... which is plenty fast for a tippmann. Just grab a faster hopper and some Compressed air and you are ready to tear through people.
I highly recommend this to anyone with a tippmann looking for a new gun... i got mine for $200 but i know they seel for more other places. save your money and spend the 200-300 on the ebolt... you wont be let down
