I don't know much about it but I do know that it looks better,  but if you like the rifle grip obviously the 98 would be a good choice.

I don't use the sights either but I would rather have the original sites than those cheap ones that look bad. The 98's shroud wobbles too. I don't know about the A-5's. All I know about the A-5's is it looks better... But everyone has different opinions.

like being able to drop the hopper and run a pull thru

barrel. Inorder to clean my A-5 flatline I have to keep
the front screws loose so I can pull the barrel off to
clean it.
Are you serious dude there are squeeges that work for the a5 flatline.  you dont have to take your barrel off dont make it hard on your self.  the squeege costs like 12 bucks save you time man.
98 custom= $134
Flatty= $117
Remoteline= $34
hopper= $5
20oz co2= $23

I never use the sights on the 98c Flatline, I use my own eyes.

The 98 Flatline shroud makes you use its crappy sights. At least with the A-5 you can use the original sights.

Theres one other thing between the 98c and the A5 Flatlines, the A5 Flatline is loud as heck compared to the 98c Flatline and the reason fer this is...the A5 Flatline doesnt have a muzzle break like the 98c Flatline.

The shroud on the 98 is cheap. Unless you pay 45 more bucks to get the aluminum shroud, I will always like the A-5's more.

The A-5 Flatline is shorter, easier to "install," easier to clean, easier to remove for use of other barrels, and impossible to screw up.

Clearly better.

Well, the 98's Flatline looks better than the A-5's.
However, the A-5's Flatline is said to be improved over the 98's.
That help?
