Tippmann Custom Pro
J&J Full Tilt 2-Piece Ceramic barrel
20oz Pure Energy CO2
The stock barrel is not bad at all but a better barrel is worth the money. An electronic hopper would be a nice addition as well.
High ROF for a mechanical
Like any other mech marker, sometimes inconsistent.
This gun is great. High ROF's can be achieved with the RT and it is adjustable and can be turned off by replacing the screw which is good when certain fields will not allow it. When using it in the woods with friends though, you can rip with this. With an upgraded barrel (A JJ ceramic for me) this gun can shoot through the occasional ball breaks that will occur. This is a very reliable gun so far, and it is a Tippmann so it can stand up to everything that you will put it through. Overall a great gun, especially for the price.
It is a great gun overall with the reliability and ROF's it can achieve w/ a good hopper, with a few upgrades can be a very reliable and good marker.

nothing this is my first time shooting a full auto
20. oz co2
hopper FOR SURE!!!....barrel shoots great
Rather cheap... Looks awsome...Shoots great....
When the velocity is turned down it freezes up sometimes and stops shooting.
i shot the gun for the first time with one of my freinds today and it was our first time shootin a full auto and it was crazy...the r/t is way much better then e-grip, it's cheaper and capable of everything that is...and it is super easy to find the sweet spot, all u have to do is hold the trigger back and it shoots like crazy...hwen we shot it the velocity was way downso it sahot like crap...but when it's turned up it's AWSOME...everyshot is pefectly straight and when the gun hops around form the recoil it gives it a nice pattern...this is a great gun for n e body..and i don't think i'm ever gonna have to buy a new gun.
This gun is everything u need to dominate the field...It's the ultimate woodsball gun!...10-10 for sure man!
My friend just recently puchased this gun and i knew it was a Tippmann (noob friendly and will never break) but i saw it and my first impression was wow the drop is plastic but thts not too bad we aired it up, co2 (my frend isnt rich thts y he got the Tippmann)
we put some paint in his revi and proceded to shoot a big tree in my yard i held the pulled the trigger a couple of times and i was like wow pretty accurate i held the trigger down to use the response and i was like not too slow i dont know exactly how fast but the box said 15 im guessing 13-14 then we took the stock barrel off and replaced it with some kind of empire barrel with 2 backs ( he got it for like 50$ and it was like a 90$ barrel cuz sum1 stole one of the backs) and i shot a few more and it was very accurate.
another major strength is it is fairly low matenince( i know i spelled it wrong its summer bite me).
My conclusion of this gun is its not a bad gun, very good for a woodsball player that wants some extra performance or someone who is just getting into paintball
To many markers to count
Most spyders(not favorite)
Tippmann custom pro response
Smart parts 16 inch progressive barrel
Power full, very accurate
Fast rate of fire
Good on co2(consistent)
None except the stock barrel
I have used many markers Many. This is by far one of my favorites, it shoots very fast and unlike many markers that are inconsistent and loose accuracy when shooting fast this marker puts tight groups where you want them. When i first used my new tippmann i was amazed by its speed and accuracy, me and my friends went to fun Gun's paintball field last week and there was no competition i blazed past everyone well except for this guy with a full auto piranha but we both put up a heck of a fight.
Over all a great gun for newbies and more advanced players.
If you want an intimidating marker that will outperform many other markers of the same or even higher prices this one is for you save a few extra bucks and get the custom pro r/t
you will be glad you did i have used many high end markers and have been playing for three years and this is by far one of my finer choices please don't buy a regular custom you will spend much more money for upgrades the pro already has its wonder full.

I bought the 98 Custom Pro w/ RT about 6 months ago. I have only used it in one battle with my friend. He had a 98 custom with the flatline and a stock. mine was completely stock but i also had the flatline. The flatlines really sucked. I know that they are supposed to be used with good quality paint. We were using Wal-Mart brands. (Scorch and Wild Streak) But, in the end I was the winner. Even though both our barrels were covered in paint. This gun performed great when i was using it. I only had one problem with it. Sometimes when i shoot it fast for a while, i would have to pull the trigger thing again to begin shooting, but this rarely happens. Also the response trigger is so FAST.
The stock 11" barrel is also very accurate.
Overall i would recommend this gun to anyone. This is good for all types of players, can be upgraded to fit your needs. It also beats installing the RT on your gun.

Tippmann 98 custom pro response, 14" Smart Parts Proggesive. 3000 psi compressed air, 32 degrees remote coil, and 4 100 pods and a harness
New Barrel, probably compressed air, and definetely a new hopper
-stock with 11" barrel, custom drop and double trigger
-still has tippmann pull
-barrel isnt great
-RT wastes air
I just got this gun a couple of months ago and i love. The RT increases the speed greatly, and many places will let you play with it as long as it doesnt bounce. But when you play in your neighborhood or woodsball you can let this baby rip. The only thing is, you will need to get a new hopper to go with it. The regular hopper it comes with isnt good. Ive only broken one ball , but ive never actualy used this guns full potential.
I would not get this gun if you are a tourney player. I would get this gun if you are a kid who likes to play speedball and woodsball who doesnt want to spend a gigantic amount of money.

A longer barrel.
The responce trigger really inproves it's speed
The targeting of the marker is "OK" about a 6 out of 10.
Ok this gun works nice but also the targeting stinks and i hate the tippman triggers there not that easy to shoot fast with not like a spyder or a ion, this gun is't so bad it shoot fast and would be great if you like to play indoor but horrible outdoor because of the accuracy but like i said up there this gun is not all that bad i liked it when i used it but now i like spyder's or faster shooting guns not like tippmans but the tippman A5 works great that is the only tippman i work use.
