i don't know much about spyders, except that when i see them at the store i see them and they are brigth silver and light blue, and i wonder why i want my gun to catch some sunlight and reflect, giving off my position. anyways...i found out a guy i work with plays and he has a spyder, its his 4th one in 3 years and he just bought this one like 2 days ago. i brought my A-5 and showed it to him, the next day he shows up with a A-5, took the sypder back, and his two other buddies did the same. what else can i say

My puny Tippmann with it's Flatline upgrade looked like a kindegarden piece of art compared to his Michael Angelo contraption. The the thing is his Spyder looked much more stronger and durable than my plastic metal disaster. The Tippmann guns are far too ugly beyond belief. Ick disgusting...

 I think tippman should bring a whole new wave of body works to the market. Not just brand new markers but peices of hard manufactured parts constructed of strong durable material and not the paintball players nightmare (PLASTIC)

 Parts like, Strong Metal Barrel Handgrips, Mag Kits, Strong metal Rails to expand the width of the Body of the 98c. It bothers me to feel like I am shooting a stick or a twig with a tree growing out of it(The Hopper...)

Most of all Make there parts of Strong Metal materials that way the customers actually get what they are paying so much for...

Ok first off i think tippmanns look bad ass especially the A-5 and and second off if you own a tippmann your probly playin woodsball (recball) so if your friend has a spyder your tippmann should be able to stand up agensed most spyders especially with some upgrades. if you dont like yer 98 then why dont you go buy your friends pretty little spyder no one is forcing you to use it.

I suppose you're right. A 98c could never be made into a milsim...

I was looking at expensive guns the other day, and they were all just flashy paint jobs and some electrial bull**edited** I'll never need. 
The 98 Custom looks like pure evil with the flatline barrel.  I'll never have to worry about it breaking.  Rain or sun, that guns going to be at 100% all day long.  Why would you want anything else?

Why do people by nikes and expensive clothing. I mean some expensive things are more durable. But just because something is expensive doesnt make it better.

I let a friend use my 98C today, we were playing woodsball.  After one game he said he was going to sell his other paintball guns and buy a 98C with the flatline barrel.

If you think tippmann's are ugly then that's fine beacause you will never see one before it shoots you in the face.

I think this forum has served its honorable purpose for us tippy lovers to wail on FireStrorm89. I think we should leave it at that and move on to more productive stuff, oh and Homer J, that pic of the 98c mod was AWESOME!!!

Apparently Armotech/Warsensor is gonna make a WG-47 AK47 MilSim soon. That should be pretty seet, a stock MilSim that isn't an M4 or an MP5 clone... Engler's prices are pretty prohibitive. Hopefully the other MilSim manufacturers will get on the ball and follow suit with some other new designs.
