ok if you have the A-5, deffenetly get a stock and remote coil....but if you have the 98c..stick with the drop forward...Why? because A-5 looks and feels way cooler then when it has remote coil, and stalk, and its hecka light.....and about the 98c....i just like drop forwards for it better....so sorry, i cant vote cause i like both equaly

Stocks are pretty usuless.... They just get in your way. Keep in mind if you buy the remote, you are going to have to buy the harness too. I would buy the drop forward, a Bullet to be specific. They balance out your gun and look great. Also, if you ever start to get in to speedball your gun is neutral and you can go both ways. With the remote you are going to use that for just woodsball.

Buy a drop with an "on/off". I have a remote and used it once. It gets caught up in the brush and the tank feels awkward on my back, especially when you need to hit the ground quick.

A good drop can balance out your gun making it just as easy to carry.

It all depends on preference.  I love my remote, though.

I'd say dropforward. Remotes in the woods get tangled up a lot unless u stay in one spot and in speedball you are limmited to shooting only one way without bringing the remote up over your head so you dont get all tangled up in it. Just my 2 cents

My remote never gets tangeled.  Maybe yours was too long.  I've never had a problem.  I love mine.

Just remember if you get the remote, you are going to have to buy a harness to put your co2 tank in.

Would you stop bumping this? You know what I would do? I would make a drop forward. That is cheap and easy to do.

My remote has worked great for me. It never gets tangled. The only
problem I have is removing the tank sometimes. It gets pressurized quite
a bit and can be a task to take off.

If you get a remote make sure you get one with a slide check it lets
you degas your gun between games, handy if you have an e-grip and
need to change something or replace the battery
