I'm loving the new Custom Pro.... 





Wow, looks like all you need for it, is a Regulator w/Vertical Adapter, MAYBE a Rocket Cock. and it's all finished for upgrades.

but is there any internal changes other than the electronic trigger? if not, i dont consider it a new gun. just a 98 custom with a few bells and whistles. and if their goal was a speedball gun, they did a bad job. the 98 design is just too bulky for a practical speed gun. they should have stuck to woodsball guns. im disappointed.

Its the internals of the Pro Custom is what all the hype is all about.....whoopty dooo!.....when all this talk about Tippmann comin out wit a new marker, I wanted to see different a body design and what did they do, kept the same body design of the 98c and created electronic upgardes....

Why change what is working? Creating a new body would raise the price of the product.
A-5
E-Grip
JCS Dual Trigger
DOP X-CORE 8 stage x-chamber
Lapco Bigshot 14" Beadblasted

Optional setup:
R/T
Dead on Blade trigger

Meh, Ion > Custom Pro

I was gonna get one, but with the Ion out now and only $285 for an electro-pneumatic with break beam eyes, I'll get that instead as a back up.

Ion will probably own every gun that is Released in 2005, unless WGP, WDP, or Kingman/Raven  Produce somthing like it at the same price if not lower....  If this new Ion is as tough as they say it is, some companies are ganna have to fallow SP's example, and produce Extremly tough/Fast Electros, at a low price, and leave out all the milling, and Hype....

I think this new Ion has Helped Set a course for No more extensive milling for hundreds of dollars more...  So we may see guns get choppier but there price tag will be next to nothing.

The Ion is going to rock, even if it is from the Smart Partz Nazis.

The Pro Custom isn't built to compete with it.  It's Tippmann's answer to all the low-end Spyder and Spyder clone electos...  And at $239 for the E-Custom Pro, it's not that bad at all...

Take the Power back! It's time to Take this forum Back from the 1337 flamers, immature idiots and know-it-alls.
