Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
The main feature is the ease of customizing the marker. The 98 custom combines all the great features of the model 98 with the ability to accept drop in kits for the Response Trigger, Electric kit, Flatline Barrel System, Double Trigger and Low Pressure kit. All of these kits can be installed with same tools that you use to disassemble the marker. We are sure the 98 custom is the most customizable marker you can buy.
Product Availability 
The Tippmann Custom 98 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Products Used:
spyder compact 2000, My opinion is that any brand of icons suck, they are like any other spyder clones. Black maxx, Tippmann A-5, pump guns, autococker, Impulse
Marker Setup: New 04 impulse
Freak(stainless steel inserts)
evo w/ z board
shocktech freestyle bolt
On the break Frame
Psycho drop forward
Lpr
91/45 Dye Compressed air tank
Recommended
Upgrades:
i recommend the responce trigger/ or the E-bolt, and the double trigger
Strengths: It_is_a_tippmann!_Tippmanns_are_the_best_and_most_affordable
_semi-auto_guns on_the_market_under_250_bucks! Its only $150, even though more upgrades will be better.
Weaknesses: Besides problems field stripping it there are no problems.
Review: It is a tippmann! Even though you cant field strip it , it is still a great gun and if you have friends who have crappy spyers or pump guns, i know you will outplay them. It does not compare to the A-5,because in my opinion it is better.and it is half the price. Also it is an easy gun to carry and it feels food in your hands.
And remember, IT IS A TIPPMANN ! !
Conclusion: Buy this product because it is cheap. This product with any after market upgrades will out-play almost any other gun.

Products Used:
Pro-carbine
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98c
Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel, revi, lp kit, regulator and hpa...
Strengths: It does what it was ment to do... it is a perfect platform for a newer player to start on...
And can be a very nice marker with a few upgrades...
As my grandpa would say, "It'll take a lickin' and keep on tickin'..."
Runs very well on co2...
Huge amount of aftermarket parts availible for it....
Quick release for the elbow... makes running a pull through a breeze...
Gets you some respect when you end up being up to par with the guys with all the spendy guns...
Weaknesses: Stock barrel... horrible accuracy...
The reciever halves are press aluminum... and thus are very hard to anodize... leaving you with the plain looking dull black and/or silver...
People with higher end guns look down on you because its seen as a "newb" gun...
Review: I believe the good and bad are review enough... so I'm not going to repeat that stuff...
Tippmann was one of the first companies to produce paintball guns... you won't get poor quality merchandise from them... With a few upgrades it can compete with any other gun out there... [i]Tippmann Effect[/i] uses tippmanns in the pro scene...
Conclusion: Perfect gun for any level of play...with a few upgrades of course...

*tippy x chamber
*ricochet ak hopper
*sweet paint job (chinese dragon)
Recommended
Upgrades:
first and fore most a new barrel, or at least polish the stock one, x chamber, electronic hopper, and if ya want rt or full auto kit
Strengths: i love my 98 C. it has been very reliable. nothing serious has ever gone wrong with it. easy to take apart once you get used to it (wouldnt recomend doing this on the field.) some say its ugly, but i think its beautiful (kinda looks like a m1 thompson). if you are new to paintball and want a marker that wont quit out on you and is easy to maintain, go with this. HAPPY SHOOTIN
Weaknesses: ive had my tippy for about a year and a half and the only problem i had with it was the rear bolt, it would sometimes stick and not recock after i fired, turns out it was just a bad o ring (had small rip). replaced it and sicnce then nothing has gone wrong with it
Conclusion: very reliable, i have played against brass eagles to angles and it has never let me down. get this gun. you will love it

Products Used:
Spyders
Marker Setup: T98C with double trigger, air system, the standard barrel.
Recommended
Upgrades:
A new barrel (i bought the flatline first, it sucks, so I use the standard).
Strengths: Stable, easy to open / clean / repair / etc, few ball breaks, never leaking.
Weaknesses: If the screws are tightened too hard, you might not be able to release the elbow.
Nothing more bad.
Conclusion: This marker is very good, for beginners and also when you get more experienced. Perhaps you need a better marker when you get into more advanced play, but for two years it has been great. It shoots far, seldomly has any problems. New to paintball? BUY IT!

Products Used:
Viewloader Revelation-if I made a commission for every broken ball, I wouldn't have to work.

Spyder Victor-great realiable little gun-highly recommended.
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 Custom
Flatline barrel
Tippmann expansion chamber w/ vertical adapter
Tippmann double trigger
Psycho Ballistics drop forward
Rocket Cock
Lapco rear velocity adjuster
Evo 2
Spyder pressure gauge
20 oz
various trigger mods

Viewloader Revelation
System-X 14" 1-piece barrel
Revvy w/ x-board
System-X expansion chamber (w/ adapter)
20 oz

Spyder Victor (completely stock)
Recommended
Upgrades:
New barrel-I like my flatline
Double trigger(cheap upgrade)
x-chamber
Strengths: Very reliable-always works, every time
Best product support in the industry
Many upgrades
Flatline barrel option
Swing-down hopper adapter for easy cleaning
Easy to do "homemade" trigger mods.
Although it's a popular gun, it's unique, and kind of a "cult" gun...lots of spyder clones out there, but everybody on the field with a Tippy is comparing their guns between games, and sharing mods/advice.
Weaknesses: Not easily field-stripped.
Plastic "power tube" valve cover can crack easily
Power tube screws easily stripped
Flatline barrel has a cheesy plastic shroud
If you're wimpy, it gets heavy w/ lots of mods. Mine is known as "The Monstrosity" because it's so heavy.
Conclusion: If you purchase this gun, I highly recommend the flatline barrel. You can install a different barrel and it'll perform just like any other gun w/ an aftermarket barrel, or you can opt for the "unfair" extra distance the flatline offers. Don't believe the ball-breakage stories. They must've installed it wrong. 10k balls thru mine w/3 breaks. I'd heard of the "legendary" Tippmann product support, and recently had the pleasure of experiencing it myself. Last weekend I was having major velocity variation problems (280-140-130-270), and upon disassembly, discovered the power tube was cracked lengthwise. I called the 1-800 Tippmann product number and described the problem. The lady asked when I bought it (november) and if I'd sent in my warranty card (of course not)...she said she'd go ahead and send me a new power tube, and to try and send in the warranty card as soon as possible. Now that in my mind is a company standing behind their product. I also find it amusing that I can stand out in the open and with my flatline barrel pick off people w/ guns costing 4x as much with impuntiy, while their 15 bps bounce at my feet. It's just a game, but it's SO much fun. Autocockers and Angels don't give you a magic force-field. I'd give this a 10 if it came apart as easliy as an A-5 (my next 'gun)

Recommended
Upgrades:
Double Trigger
Any barrel
Strengths: This gun is awesome. Its that simple. If you want a good paintball gun get this one. IT DOESN'T BREAK PAINTBALLS. It is very accurate and has a range of about 175 ft. I play people with more expensive guns and I don't see any difference (Custom 98 price is around $125.00).
Weaknesses: The only bad thing is the stock barrel. You can increase range and accuracy by buying even a $50.00 barrel
Conclusion: BUY THIS GUN and get your heart pounding with a Tippmann

Marker Setup: tippman 98 custom, stock barrel
Recommended
Upgrades:
12"-18" barrel(i like the flatline$100-$150 but it is quite expensive), Expansion Chamber(not really needed for preformence.......just helps conserve Co2) Rocket Cock(keeps dirt out of gun)
Strengths: Everything about it is good(except the stock barrel) it's nice and light weight and is fairly quiet to start out with(without upgrades)(the rocket cock also helps to quiet the gun). IT IS EXTREMELY EASY TO UPGRADE BY YOURSELF.
Weaknesses: The stock barrel isn't great but it isn't bad bad either
Conclusion: I would suggest this gun to any newbie or expirienced player because it will last for a long time and is very very very very good for price

Products Used:
None except for a brief using of a Brass Eagle Raptor, which, might I add, was pretty much a waste of time. Brass Eagle Raptors are awful, let's leave it at that.
Marker Setup: I use a Tippmann 98 Custom with the original barrel, which I hope to get changed very soon, a normal Viewloader 200 pb. Hopper, and a 20 oz Co2 tank.
Recommended
Upgrades:
New barrel... Definately...
Strengths: Almost everything. Great accuracy and range, even with the original stock barrel. I do great with this gun. I reccommend it to pretty much anybody who wants a good paintball experience at a very low price. The grips practically molded into my hands. And this gun can even be upgraded to almost anything!
Weaknesses: It's a bit heavy, but a lot of it is because of my C02 tank size.
Conclusion: Anyway, this gun is great for beginners. Go! Buy! Now!
