98 costum act..cyclon feeder,RT triger,flatline,pmi 48/3000 steely with remote,Triumph eXT-straight out of the box
for the triumph id recomand an aftermarket barrel(my 98 will fit---wooooohoooo...what a pluss)
Inexpensive, has e-trigger, internals are same as 98, has expension chamber built in
Hard to dissamble for cleaning...color
Ok.... I got the marker last friday and the first one i took home had a e-trigger problem, but the retailer exchanged it no problem...So on sutarday I went out to the field and tried it out....the gun is acurate within 20-30 feet beyond that shots started to weir off a bit but that could also have been the cold and the paint used( was not using winter paint yet)Off course this was with stock barrel so an aftermarket barrel will also help this.I w as using the gravity hopper that came with the marker and found that it is fast enough at least for my needs.So over all i was more then satisfied with the performance of the marker( comparing oranges to oranges)...its not my 98 but for the money it costme its a great deal(I bought it brand new for $47.99)When i got home started playing with it and found that changing out the sear to the 98's and adding triger return spring and slide the gun turned into a mechanical marker(since i plan to put the e-triger into my 98...hehehe)
I recomand this marker for any newbee or as a beater marker....becose of the color and thehard to dessasemble i give this marker a 9/10
Tippmann 98, A5, eXT, XT, XL

Pure Energy co2 20z
New Boss Barrel

Get a good Loader for this, its great. really
Please read my review
Not much color selection
This marker is really real worth for you money. my first impression, damn this marker is funny. so i get myself one to test around the perfomance.
yes its really fast, although you could not compete with DM7 (lol) but could your finger shot faster than 15bps anyway?
Many Firing mode
4 firing mode, but it still a good one for it price
compare to 98 and maybe even better than A5 for me
very much than the bulky A5
yes it is, dont judge by it look. feel it
Intergrated Drop Forward
needless to say, look it yourself
center feedneck, fit most of my e loader without any problem
like the 98
No maintenance required
yes not much, one of the most reliable low end e-marker
out of 1 case 2000 round pb i tested, no chop at all.
this is one of the marker that i considered "classic", i dont know about you all guys. but i have no regret getting this marker. eventhough it just for my collection (most of the time i used my Smart Parts's marker), but for people out there who op for budget marker nor beginner for paintball tournament, this is a good one for ya.
I would give 10 because of it price < perfomance.
it really suite many paintballers budget
Remote it is way much easier without the stupid tank in the way and a nice hopper to feed it to the intimidating 15bps( try for a hopper with break-beam eyes cause the gun itself doesn't have any).
Cheap, good performance, 4 modes of fire , expansion chamber, relatively durable
Eats batteries, no eyes, occasionally uncock self in burst, trigger is lazy, no marked products
The tippmann is the dream speed-ball gun of the american cheapskate or shallow wallet. Though unable to beat an Ion (trust me I have tried and have only got him 5 out of 50 tries) it still has the fire power to trade shots with any rookie or Spyder (ha). Plus the sound is like a heart stopper if someone hears these shots then they are either A out or B running for cover or C you are missing them completely.
This gun is a good waypoint into the world of speedball and woodsball with it price you get some bang(no pun intended) for your buck.
8 out of 10

CO2 annoying to fit on
(Tested with an electric Halo-B hopper)
Tippmann made a valiant effort when trying to reach the Tournament players, but they failed massively.
The Triumph is a Tippmann 98c in disguise. i tested this out after my uncle got it. First i noticed
For a tournament style marker, this thing is massive, almost the 98c
it took me maybe 3 minutes to finally get the CO2 on the darn thing
When i was firing it(using nel-splat spec ops) almost every 10th ball would break.
this marker is loud and only moderately accurate.
Holding it is a little annoying, its bulky size and weird looks make it for even weirder handling.
when i finally got my Uncles apart to look at it's guts it looked almost exactly like the 98c. just without A.C.T. there is like 4 different sizes of hex wrench sizes on this thing.
not worth your 150-200 big. If you going to get a Tournament marker get something like a Spyder Victor II or 3(in the same price range, most likely cheaper), or a Cyborg(about 350-450$) I'd expect better from tippmann.
4 out of 10 because it does fire, and might hit your target.
