okay, im a starter, ive been looking at the tippmann 98 costum, and I found 1 brand new with a hopper and mask for $155. Is that a good deal? Is it a descent gun for a starter like me? About how many feet per second does it shoot?

Thanks

hey buddy no offence but its pretty obvious your making new usernames to act like more ppl are on yur side i dunnop bout u but i started wif a spyder immagine worst gun i ever had i had walmart eradicators that were better then that also ya tippman are pretty cheap if u realli wanna play speedball then buy a speedball gun like a Ion or Impulse  not saying the tippmann isn't better or worst any gun can have only the perforance the player gives to it so ya after i got rid of my immagine i bout a 98 can u say amazing sniper fast gun i still need to buy a better barrel but holy it shoot pretty straight with a stock barrel when i was using it and it was pretty god damn windy so to all the haters of tippman kiss my a$$ and to all the lovers have fun wif yur tippmann and hope yur perforance improves like mine has in these last few weeks (TIPPMANN ROCKS)

(In Game) ok guys watch out one at 21 dorito and back middle one, one just made a move for the snake shoot em are you their shoot him at the snake.....(big pause looks back) omg are you jokin 3v1

I agree with both sides here. The stock triggers on Tippmann markers do suck balls, they are not adjustable, the trigger pull is crap, and the springs are a pain if you don't know what you are doing. But Tippmanns are the king in the woods, you will never find a gun that is more reliable than a Tippmann, not even $1000 markers can compare to the durability and reliability of a Tippmann 98C. If you are a speedballer then yes, stay away from Tippmann if you don't feel like upgrading... a lot. If you play woodsball a Tippmann will be your best friend. It all just depends on how you play.
What I got:
   Tippmann A-5
   Flatline Barrel
   E-Grip
   Comp-Air System
   88ci 5000psi Evil Scion
   Psycho Ballistic's Z-Drop
   JT Proteus Sportz Comm Mask

^paintball freak^, i agree that tippmanns are VERY reliable, but i dont agree that the stock triggers are crap and the pull is crap. personally i like the stock trigger.

and also, felix, ur not going to change anyones mind by saying "Tippmanns suck........dont buy them"

mattie5960, that deal is decent, but i wouldn't buy it. The mask is probably gonna suck, and the M98C comes with an hopper anyways....it would be better to just buy the stock M98C and buy a mask you try and like.

Also, basically every paintball gun can shoot the same speed, it's really irrelevant since the fields mandatory limit is nothing over 300fps. So even if you had a gun that could shoot 1,000fps, it would be pointless.

But just for your info, you can make almost any paintgun shoot pretty damned fast...I know for Tippmanns you can just get a stronger drive spring and easily get into the high 400fps and even over 500fps...but like I said it's pointless.

speedball, usually smaller area than woodsball. Usually hide behind balloons and are shooting most of the time.

woodsball- in the woods in a bigger area. It is more of a camouflage/stealth thing.

okay, what would being in an open field thats maybe a 200 yard square with nothing for coverage except bushes, and 3-4 foot deep holes fall under? speedball or woodball? Also what would being in the woods fall under? is a Kingman Spyder Xtra a good gun for these conditions? Is a Tippmann 98 custom good for these conditions?

^Mattie, it sounds to me like the style you are playing would be sort-of a woods/speed hybrid.

Personally, I wouldn't buy a Spyder. Despite the look, they are not much more compact than a Tippmann and weigh basically the same, but the Tippmann has better balance so it feels lighter. The Spyder may comes with more upgrades for less money, but the gun is more prone to malfunctions and breakdowns that a Tippmann.

Basically, the Spyder is not a bad gun, it's just not as realiable or durable as a Tippmann.

I feel like Spyders may have more options for the same price, but those options aren't done well....the Tippmann isn't as flashy, but it shoots just as straight and fast and far, and is gonna do it without giving you a headache.

Some people love Spyders and have good experiences, so don't take my word as gospel.

But the overwhelming majority of people that have tried and/or owned both will tell you they feel the Tippmann is more hassle-free, in the longrun especially.
