Tippmann 98 custom
Posted 11 January 2013 - 06:30 PM
So I am brand new to paintball and have played twice so far. I currently have a stock Tippmann 98 custom and wanted to know what some good (low budget) upgrades for it would be. I will be playing a mix of woodsball and indoor rec. play. I've done some research on it and have come to the conclusion that I should probably buy a cyclone feed and response trigger and that I should probably upgrade the barrel too. Any suggestions are welcome and of course if you can give an explanation as well I am always looking to learn more about the game and equipment.

what marker would you recommend?
No idea, ive just been reading up on upgrades and a lot of people have suggested new barrels for distance.
Only flatline barrels and Apex barrels do that.
Barrels do not add accuracy and the Cyclone feed sucks. Save up for a new marker.

Tippmann is the workhorse of the industry, they can handle any abuse and still keep going.
This makes them one of the favorites for fields to use as rentals.
Tippmann barrels have a lousy factory finish, but with a honing & polish can be as good as any aftermarket brand.
Tippmanns can be upgraded, but the cost of those upgrades equal or exceed the price of a marker more suited to your needs.

I personally would not reccomend doing a whole lot to it. Maybe get yaself a 14" apex 2 barrel, a good 68ci4500psi tank (FAR FAR better than CO2 for shot to shot consistancy and thuse accuracy) and a good loader (NOT THE CYCLONE get something ya can use if ya upgrade guns latter maybe a Pinokio as its very fairly priced).
and if you desire a bit moe fire power the RT is about all you will need.
That setup there will do absolutly anything you need in paintball for many many years with the exception of turnoments.

probably 2-300 atm, more if I sell the tippmann and ill be able to work away at upgrades.
What is your budget?

I was one of the first people to get it. You know, not rubbing it in or anythjng jurzy;P
For $300 you can find a used Axe which I REALLY recommend.
If you want to buy new and keep playing mech I really like a GoG Enmy. I want to get one for myself.

If you look hard enough you can get a hopper for 15. A uses in shops shape flatline. 10.
Maybe a remote line and belt like holder with a 5+1.

I played with my 98 for two years. Then went a5 with upgrades. After a few years I went to a nice set when I knew I would be playing at least once a month every year. Just FYI
