98c, Drop forward, Double trigger, Flateline, 2Ooz tank,commando stock
I purchased the double trigger a few months back and noticed a great deal of improvement in my game and speed.I was able to get on the high end 12bps which was a vast improvement over the stock trigger, This worked great when i Incorporated it with my flatline which allowed me to have both the causalities of being a front man clearing bunkers and a sniper
I recommend this to be one of your first upgrades simply due to the price, and the overall boost in performance it is a must have
Very comfortable, fingers never get tired or sore, cheap
Messes with safety, trigger guard wobbles
This is a good uprade if you have an e-grip or a response trigger because you just hold the trigger but if you have semi automatic, it might be easier to stay with a single trigger. this messes with the safety, but if you put it in just right, everything works. The trigger guard also wobbles just a little but it doesnt bother me when i paintball. Some people say they got this upgrade expensively, but i got it for $15 and it wasn't even on sale.
This is good for an e-grip or a response trigger but there are better double triggers out there.

Nicer looking than stock.
Trouble with the safety.
I bought this trigger to replace the stock single trigger on my 98custom. Installation was very quick, took less than 10 minutes. After i installed it and went out to test it, i found that it was very hard to turn off the safety (after a while of use and working it in, it becomes easier), as well as the trigger is somewhat flimsy. I was impressed however because it feels really good, imo, to be using both fingers. Also i was able to shoot somewhat faster.
On a side note, if you do the pen spring mod (cutting a pen spring and replacing it where the stock trigger spring is) you can shoot a bit faster as well.
I would recommend this product to anyone in the market for a double trigger, as long as they can find it for a reasonable price. overall....9/10
The stock trigger on the Tippmann 98 Custom, in my opinion, is nothing compared to the double trigger kit in the ways of rate of fire. Other then that, this double trigger kit is pretty similar to other kits.
-Improved rate of fire
-Easy to install
-Interferes with the safety mechanism
Let me begin by saying the Tippmann 98 Custom, stock, is a fairly good entry level marker. But as with anything, improvements can be made. The double trigger kit is a recommended upgrade because it will help you improve your rate of fire (it helped me a little anyways), makes it a bit more comfortable to hold, and, in my opinion, makes the 98 Custom look more like a paintball marker then some twisted kind of militaristic weapon.
There are some disadvantages, though. One of them was when I installed the kit it messed up my safety. After installing the kit, the safety became inefficient, and if you pulled the trigger with it on hard enough, it would sometimes fire a paintball, (in other words the safety wasn't reliable at all, and, after all, you should never rely just on the safety of your marker, always use a barrel plug/condom!!) and after about 5 months use, the safety became absolutely useless.
I would recommend this kit to the random hero that wants to upgrade his Tippmann a little bit. The double trigger, in my opinion, is a great improvement to the 98 Custom, and I think it will definetly help your game. However, nothing is perfect, and there are some problems involved.

Hard plastic, easy to install if you know your way with 98's
Can't walk it easially
the trigger guard is nice. no need to cut grips. the safety problem did not happen when i installed it. the only thing i had to do was put the trigger pin in before i re mounted hte halves of the marker together. it can't be walked with ease, but still ALOT easier than the stock 3 punds of pull to trip the sear. all around good upgrade though!
Its not perfect, but with a little pratice, it will work like a charm

Affects Safety Function
Doesn't Work With RT
This trigger left A LOT to be desired. It didn't work at all.
The trigger is cheap but it doesn't work. At least you'll have money to spend elsewhere.
It's made of heavy duty plastic. It seems pretty tough.
This is the biggest shortcoming of this product. It doesn't fit at all. I compared the profile of the stock trigger and this, and the BT Designs trigger was much larger. This lead to a menagerie of problems
-Affects Trigger Function
After installing this in my marker I gassed it up and went to test it. I was very disappointed. I squeezed the trigger back to where it stopped and my marker didn't fire. I held it for 2 seconds and it finally fired. I have NEVER had this problem with the stock trigger, so the problem lies solely with the BT Designs trigger. No matter what I did the trigger preformed in this way.
-Affects Safety Function
Another problem I was able to associate with this trigger was he fact that it affected the ability of my push-button safety to function properly. After installing the trigger the safety refused to budge irregardless of the amount of pressure applied to it. I had to press down with both thumbs just to get it to move. Once again this problem never occurred with the stock trigger.
-Dosesn't Work With RT
In addition, this trigger affected the use of the RT. Considering that the trigger hardly worked on its own, it made the RT completely useless. The RT hardly shot over 5bps with this.
I would not recommend this product under any circumstances, unless BT begins to make them better.

Light Trigger Pull
No Cutting, Easy to install
Hard to get used to
This Trigger is good. I just got it. If you don't want to spend alot of money find one on EBay, I got mine for $18.00. Everyone says the safety does not work and i've experienced that but after that I took my gun apart and put the safety on and then put my gun back together and it worked. The Trigger pull is light but even lighter with a simple Pen Spring where the stock spring is. I just got it but I had trouble shooting Fast but its just me. This Trigger is very easy to install, no cutting the grips (not hard anyway)

Actually makes my safety better
Side to side wobble
Hard to install
Ive barely used this but it seems pretty good. shoots much faster than the stock trigger and is easyer to pull. it really prevents ur finger from getting tired. it was hard to install, but it was worth it in the end. side wobble and the cheesey plastic r a disapointment but not much else is. although it made my safety button harder to push, it makes it better because it is mutch harder to push out making it safer.
Good item, but im sure there r better oens out there

Made of Plastic
This is a great product to buy. It makes shooting so much easier. You can get up to faster rate of fire. i love the way my marker feels with this trigger on it. If you are tired of your single trigger then get this. You will not be disappointed. Even thought it is made out of plastic the only way it will break is if your a noob and you don't know how to use a marker and not screw it up. It is so easy to put in that a Noob could install it. Just take off the left receiver, take out your single trigger and pop in the double. Then go and have fun.
Buy it. It is good upgrade. You will not be sorry. But nothing is perfect so i am giving it a 9.

Cant Short Stroke it
Well, i got this at my local pro shop becasuse i heard this was basicly the same trigger as the Tippmann one a MC, but you didnt have to cut the grips, so i got this one. Well, yes it was very to install, just take the top plate off, and replace the guard and trigger, and your done. No cutting or anything. And if you like, thanks trigger guard, you can still use it as a single trigger if you like. Anyway, this only has 2 flaws. First is its kinda pricey for two little pieces of plastic. And if you try to short stroke it without a RT, it will lock up on you, until you pull on it a little.
