Experience:
More than 5 years

Products Used:
Custom 98, A-5
Marker Setup: Alpha Black (Bravo One) Tactical
E-Trigger
Cyclone Feed
16" Progressive Barrel
Recommended
Upgrades:
Out of the Box, the Cyclone Feed would be the obvious choice, to handle the excellent 3 shot burst mode and full auto modes.
Strengths: Looks
Durability - Tough as nails!
Price tag is sweet
Weaknesses: Difficult to mod. (Lacking Scope Mounts etc.)
Heavy.
The stock barrel is a little short.
Review: I have used Spyder clones since I owned my first marker, and finally decided to go for something a little different.
A true woodsball marker, this thing is awesome.
Sure, it's a little heavy for some, but I am not a small person, so I can handle it.
It is tough as a bulldog, and can handle being dropped.
It has a nice matt finish, which doesn't give away position while crawling in a bush with a bathroom tap might do.
It's not quite up to the league of the A-5, but it sure can hold it's own in a fire fight.... and at the going price, you cannot go wrong.
In my years of experience in paintball, I have always found one problem, you get what you pay for..... I was pleasantly surprised so far with this marker, as it is cheap, reliable and strong.
I have put through plenty paint, and only when the battery on the E-grip failed, did I receive problems... but that was my fault.

Conclusion: If you are looking to start woodsball, and want a strong, reliable marker, then get this one!
Do yourself a favour though, upgrade to a Cyclone feed for peace of mind when you need to offload a full hopper in under 20 seconds.

Products Used:
Tippmann98 Platinum ACT, Tippmann 98
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 with Rufus Dog power tube,Empire barrel kit, Extreme Rage Auto Hopper. And Tippmann Alpha Black Tactical E-trigger (still in testing stage)
Recommended
Upgrades:
Cyclone Feeder, Tippmann has one that is just for the ALPHA BLACK now.
Strengths: Tough,reliable
Weaknesses: Just wish the eletric firing modes were easier to change.
Review: I have abused this marker, and have let friends use it, and no problems yet. I strongly recomend getting a Cyclone feeder for it if you have the E-Trigger, they do not add the weight to it like the electric hoppers do. It's a little heavy but it's not a problem for me.
Conclusion: This gun is awsome in Woodsball, I have upgraded to the cyclone feeder and a 14" barrel. It's looks are awsome, I also recomend using a remote line, it gives you the freedom you need with this gun. It is very affordable especialy if your starting off, You will not find another Tippmann with an E-Trigger for this price. This is a Fun Gun!

Review: After playing with Spyders my whole paintball life and putting way too much money into upgrades only to see every other tippmann out shoot my E-99 I decided to sell off my Spyder stuff and jump two feet into a Tippmann. When I saw this marker for the first time I was sold just on looks, then I saw the really low price tag and thought I couldnt go wrong. Its pretty accurate and has a really nice feel to it. Yes it is heavy but when your running around the woods your not going to be paying any attention to that anyway. The e-tigger is rated at 15bps and my cheap little Ricochet could not keep up at full auto. The maintance is a little tricky compared to a Spyder but its not too bad. The one bad thing I could say about this marker is that the inside where the striker and the bolt slide on the receiver seems to be pretty rough but hopefuly after acouple of days of playing it will wear down. All in all good marker so far.

Update: The Egrip can be hard to use. This is a very basic grip that includes 4 firing modes semi, 3 round burst, full auto low (12BPS), and full auto high (15 BPS). It can be difficult to use the full auto at times because it requires you to fire 4 shots in 1 sec and hold the forth to activate full auto. This was a pain just test firing the marker, I could not imagine counting on the full auto feature to get you out of a bind and have to to fire 4 shots just to start full auto. Also the little switch in the the grip makes it a pain to change firing modes and impossible if your out in the woods and cant find the right stick. Just something to think about before you buy.

Update 2: I finally got a day to play with this gun and I had a blast. I had no problems with this marker at all, not even a chop! While playing I did not notice a problem with the E-grip at all. I wont say anything about accuracy because I had to use less than perfect paint but I still managed to get plenty of hits. Also I took a hard digger turning away from incoming paint and landed right on my gun. I picked it up, ran like heck and engaged another target with no issues. All I can say is Tippmanns rule woodsball. 2 ABTs, 1 A-5 and 1 old as heck Pro-carbine (the best marker out there) had no problems. Stacked tube blowbacks, uh, not so much.
Conclusion: Awesome marker!
