The 98 Nitro is a 98 Custom with GTA accessories. The 98 Nitro comes with our sought after Low Pressure Kit, which after extensive research and development, gives the 98 Nitro less recoil and consistant shot to shot velocity. This kit includes the GTA secondary regulator, and a highly durable 47 cu in./ 3000 psi. GTA Nitrogen bottle. Accompanied by the Double Trigger system for lighter trigger pull, our GTA Raised Sight Rail is included for superior accuracy. The 98 Nitro is geared towards tournament and speedball associated events, but performs equally well in recreational play.
The Tippmann Proshop 98 Nitro is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
ICD Freestyle red to black fade with an evo II. used to have a tippmann 98 Custom with a response trigger, J&J 2 pc. stainless 14 inch barrel, Viewloader Revolution loader, low pressure kit, Crossfire 3000 psi 68 ci preset, and double trigger
if you dont have anything for the trigger get an E-Bolt or a response trigger but the MUST is A NEW BARREL!! the tippmann barrel is too short, extremely unaccurate, and chops like crazy. Also get an electric loader.
This marker is very durable, good for rec use and okay for tournaments.
Slow, bad air efficiency, and chops. Always bringing back to Eastern Paintball to get fixed
The tippmann was the first marker i got and i loved it. I was only into like woods play back then so i just had a good barrel and loader on there. After i put the r.t. on it was extremely sensitive so i changed it and somehow it became fully automatic. The tank only lasted me a little less than 2 hours.This marker is great for a day in the woods out back and can take anything from being smacked against a tree to getting shot up. The only problem i had with this marker was i had to keep on bringing it back to the local shop ( Eastern Paintball) to get fixed.
If you are'nt really into the tournament scene this marker is perfect for you.

front grip=piece of junk
bolt gets dirty
co2 tank impedes sight
bolts= rusty junk
i am in love with it. i have used a 'spyder compact,' a 'JT whatever-the-bone-they-are's,' and an old pump shotgun-looking deal.
the tip has proven to be the best of these. plus it keeps constant enough to keep up with my friends more modified '32 degrees,' and standard tpmn A-5; while playing "back yard" ball. i have yet to play with it at an open field.
the feature that drew me to the gun is its tank like strength and micheal jackson like ability to be customized. its durable enough to roll around in the dirt with not worrying about plastic or metal breaking; with the exception of the front grip, the material of the gun is quite thick.
however, the two-hand design makes it hard for me to hold it while peering around a tree; if you use the tank for a stock, it makes the distance between eye and sight uncomfortably far; and the bolts, mine rust, and it bothers me.
i did not find the weight to be an issue, and any forward imbalance was corrected by my 20oz tank.
also, the barrel is poopy after fifty feet or so, but it stays consistent at shorter range - no matter how fast i fire.
durable, customizable, and sleek style make for great fun.
i bought the gun to last me a while, and so far it is fairing well [except the bolts].
ooh! ooh! almost forgot, it has never miss fired. so far, the ball is always set by the time the bolt sets.
Tippmann Proshop 98 Nitro changed barrel to flatline
MORE POWERFULL , More consequtive powerful shots. works great with flatline.
NOTHING best thing ive ever seen for a tippy along with my flatline
This is the best way to buy this gun. on the field .. no lie this is way better than any of my friends expensive autocockers... if ur looking to buy a good gun from the get go .. GET THIS!! I also suggest FLATLINE works like a charm with this.. never broken a ball.. balls dont sail.. hit EVerything!!!!! Great for snipering.
Buy this product definately.. best thing ive seen with additon of flatline!!
er...hmm...it's just a 98 with some upgrades...special about that? Hmm...what compares..lots of stuff outdo this gun, but then again, we're then comparing it with guns that cost 2-5 times what this one costs....
don't feel like writing this, too lazy, maybe later
RT (not an e-bolt, e-bolts are expensive and useless; you could get a whole new gun for the cost of the -ebolt)
Well, it runs on nitro, it's much quieter now becuase of the lower operating pressure, the sniper barrel tippy puts on looks pretty cool and I can't complain about the preformance, er, hmm, different tank, with a 98, a 47/3000psi tank isn't enough...well, I was using a 88/4500 (cough, cough, melon) cause it was an upgraded 98 and not the package, but get a bigger tank
I think that the barrel could've been better, like a bigshot if you want extreme accuracy or maybe the J&J Pro 1 or 2-Piece or Ceramic...but the sniper barrel thingy tippmann does ain't a bad barrel...much, much better than the stock barrel actually
this is a good gun, but I'd do some other things to it...overall, for price-cost preformance ratio thingy whatever the heck ya call the thing, I'd give it a 7.5 cause, while it's good, it ain't great...for the price of $400.00 (or $500.00?), you could get some nice stuff that would put this gun to shame, but preformance was a 9. Oh, and this gun doesn't shoot any farther than a normal gun
with a better barrel it has a long flat tragectory, comes with an ok tank, has a second reg. Has a 2x trigger. If u put a boomstick, aa, or any good barrel, a better front bolt, a drop forward, and a revy this gun can keep up with anything.
I Have used pirana's , all of the brass eagle line, and most of the tippmann line as well as some spyders.
I curently use the Tippmann modle 98 custom with the flatline and responsive trigger upgrades.
I recomend the flatline and responsive triger and if you arent poor by the time you have these additions then you may as well get a nitro kit as well.
It is the only gun i have used that can fire so very far and go straight. It goes about 250 feet with out having to lob the balls. Also a very accurate gun, even with out the upgrades. I can shoot people through a crack in a wall of tires.
I can only say the bad thing about this gun is the price, and the additional costs of the upgrades.
In conlusion i would say that it is not the most pretty gun. It does not come with lots of little air tubs and neet buttons like the auto cockers, or the spyders, but then again you dont have to worky as much about droping it to hard.
A very good gun. Worth my wile to write a review.
