The Electronic Trigger and the Cyclone Feed System is a must if you want to be able to compete against good players, firing one by one is worthless when paint is raining on you.
Tippmanns are Tough and get the job done
Sorry i have not found one weakness in my gun yet.
I love the way you can customize your marker any way you prefer, there are so many mods made for tippmans you can drive your self dead broke buying stuff. Tippmanns are very efficient scenario weapons, because the paintballs travel further and and still have an effect in great distance. Even tho they came out with the A-5 and the X-7, the Custom Pro is just as good the only difference i've found is that parts and mods are cheaper on my Custom, and dont think is worth spending over $300 on a marker that will do the same as yours. You can definetely intimidate other players just by the look of your marker and that is why i love my Custom Pro E.
If you are new to scenario paintball and are thinking about what marker to buy, spend your money on a semi automatic Custom, and if you like the sport you got the perfect weapon to modify and kick some serious butt with.
Gun shoots very accuratly and is very solid has nice firing modes no problems yet
Played many games it with no real problems. I like this gun the most out alot of the guns i used. it isnt as bulky as the a 5 that i have used in the past and fires nicer than my jt and spyder put together i also like the offset that the hopper has besides for the a5 my guns never had that and its nice
Tippmann 98 Custom Pro E
E-Grip - W.A.S. Board
Halo B - w/ Rip
Different barrel needed
Fast hopper (Halo, egg..)
Very fast and accurate right out of the box. Very durable and reliable. Very costumizable.
Price is pretty high. If your willing to spend the money go bigger, go better.
First off.. its a tippmann. Its built like a tank, you dont have to worry about breaking it. Mines been throw around and beat up and it stil works wonderfully. Althought its a great gun out of the box you need to buy certain upgrades and everything adds up. In my opinion it's not worth the money. I would rather put the money into a better gun that you dont need to worry about upgrades with.
Woodsball players would have a field-day with this gun. The would own the place. On the other hand, speedball players would find it alittle heavy and would probably find it to be a hastle diving and running. Its a great gun but it depends what kind of ball you play.
new trigger spring
lightened rear hammer
maybe a new barrel
milling to take some weight off
Has the capability to shoot fast
Easy to use and maintain
Great starting marker
Side feed (personal opinion here)
Eternals could be better polished
First off before I start this review I strongly recommend you get an electric hopper unless you want your gun to become a blender.
This marker is a great starting marker for any paintball beginner. It is a very simple design that anyone could figure out by just looking at the internals. The marker helps to ease beginners into the game giving them confidence in their marker. Tippmann has made it very easy to dissemble and resemeble without very little doubt as to where each piece goes. Anyone should be able to figure out how the internals of the tippmann work with just taking ten minutes to look inside.
The maintence on the marker is extremely simple as it only requires you to lube two o-rings on the front bolt and the rear hammer. The marker probably doesn't need even that amount of maintence after each game. It is extremely durable giving everyone secound chances when it comes to forgetting to oil your gun after long games. The side feed is nice in that it allows you to easily access to the bolt with taking out one screw.
The marker has the capability to shoot pretty fast but is held back by it's trigger. I found it very difficult to walk the trigger because of the spring, but I swapped the original spring with a spring pen to fix this problem. Since the cycle rate on this is over 25 bps a new board such as the W.A.S. equalizer will unlock this potential...tippmann is now selling the boards in their newer models.
The biggest problem i found with the tippmann is the heavy hammer in the back. The thing gives the marker so much weight along with it's heavy body. Furthermore, during high rates of fire the kick from the hammer is rediculous and I found it hard to keep on target at times. Drilling holes in the hammer or purchasing a dark horizons hammer will help to alleviate this problem and allow the marker to cycle faster.
Another problem with the marker is the length of it. My arms just feel so spread out on it when I am trying to snap shoot with it. The marker is not suited for speedball but is definetly a good canidate for woodsball. I would never take this out on the speedball course.
Another reason I wouldn't take this out on the speedball course is the side arm feed. It sticks out giving you a larger profile to be hit. For woodsball enthusiasts this can be a plus as you can look straight down your sight and put a scope on your marker.
The last thing with this marker is the polished internals. They don't look very well polished and the job looks pretty crappy. You can alleviate this problem by taking some polishing anointment and repolish the internals with steel wool.
This is the perfect marker for any beginner looking to get into paintball. The marker is easy to use and is extremely durable. The several flaws I found with it can be easily fixed with a little elbow grease so nothing really too big. I strongly recommend this marker to any woodsball enthusiast or beginner...you can't go wrong with a tippmann

This is a fast gun. Its a bit heavy to monvouver around but its cool. My friends sometimes chops and when it does u need to clean it right away or it will get really nasty. You would own in a game of woodsball because of its low profile and fast shooting. Its even pretty cheap and tippmann in a name you can trust. The trigger on that thing is awesome, its sooo light and it pops right back up allowing about 15 bps.
Cool gun and reliable. Great woodsball or tourney.
