Hey I just got a Tippmann 98 Custom with a 9 oz CO2 Tank and I'm wondering how long the tank would last in 1 game? Like if I would just use a hopper full of paintballs, how long would that last. Would it take me 2 hopper full of paintballs? :huh:

it will probably last you 2 hoppers or a little less, ye but as everyone else is saying get hpa, but personally i would save up to get a carbon fiber tank i got a steelie and i wish now that i should've just got a carbon fiber.

probably about 1-2 hoppers. But for 40$+ you can get a nice hpa tank. It will save you money and your gun.

My friend has one of those, and they do not last long at all. Unless you are very weak, either get a bigger co2 tank or get a HPA tank, because HPA tanks are getting very cheap these days.

You could get the one that xcinimodx recommended.

Okay, thanks man. I'm going to look into that HPA tank. I was already planning to get it actually but I don't have any money right now but that'll be the first thing I'll buy if I get enough money. Thanks.

a 9 oz on a stock tippy 98 should go 2-300 shots depending on temperature and how good of a fill.
The lesson here is love your gun dont give a shit about what people say about it.. if it fits you keep it if not move on. I get enough crap from kids who think autocockers are shit when most have never shot one. Every angel I ever shot was smooth but they were out of my range so i went with an autococker instead. Now I have a couple and they are my babies. Love the sport Love your gun whatever it may be and Love yourself .. maybe not in that order. CockerOwnerClub
