Yeah...Like 2 more. gg.

Id say carbine, but i just flat out like the carbine more. Higher quality, better looks, better feel, easier to work on, easier to mod.

Both have high quality, Better looks only if you like the rifle style more, Better feel again only if you like rifle more, And the one thing the 98's good at that you can upgrade it to woods ball or speed ball. pro carb your stuck with woods.

Varies your Style, if your all-Natural(Woods) the Carbine would blow the 98c out of the Water... if you like the speed and Woods thing then go with 98c.

Besides E-bolt, and LPK, I cant think of no Upgrades the 98c has over the Pro/Carbine.

Think!

98C - Customizable until the end of the world

P/C - Ehh, not too customizable. Enos put alot of work into his, but most are homemade mods.

I'd say a 98C.

Go Pro!  I've had them both I like the Pro Carbine much more and a plus is you won't become one of the bazillion people with a 98.
