I dont see why you need to shoot so fast, I can keep someone down shooting 5bps....I dont need 15+.

Does Tippmann make 21" barrels...I know they had 14 and 16 Sniper barrels, but dont think they have 21".

Why do you rag on stocks? Does our military not use stocks...maybe if you knew how to fire a gun properly, you wouldnt mind it.

actually yes I am 35.

And my home field specializes in 98's as rentals. this is it...

www.skirmish.com

Now...Impulse is right that both stink as stock markers.

TheGuy posted this: Go buy Natural Newbie's 98. Its been modded with a double action ram, and an Intimidator board set-up. So its not a Tippmann that shoots just as fast a Timmy, which would be faster than a spyder without a similar set-up.

what is this and where can I see pics/specs of this marker?

model98.net


You know why I stopped using my spyder......

It would be because I snapped the gripframe on it. The handle broke right off.

Tippmann's don;t seem to have problems like that. Kingman pretty much told me to go screw off and buy a new grip after that happened.

this is the funny part..."sniper barrels"...the are NO SNIPERS IN PAINTBALL...only ACTORS...

because our military isn't using full face shields that are interfered with, by the lower half of the face-shield

I've used a 98 with a stock on it, and the stock never interfered with my mask.

And I know there arent snipers in paintball, and it is obviously a marketing tactic to get noobs to buy the barrels. But atleast Tippmann doesnt pump out a new gun every other week where the only difference is the paintjob and a sight rail.

I fail to understand why your field uses 98's as rentals, while you hate their guts and worship Spyders? Why not rent out the Spyders?

because they are cheaper to fix when things break...remember that the tippys are more 'durable'...as you say

Uh...wait a minute...between the 98, the 98C came the a5 and flatline. except for the a5...they are the saaaaame old boooooooring marker. and they ARE heavier...no not to the point where it feels like you're hauling a spare tire around...but i play all day. and the spyders are lighter...even with co2. They use better metal...aluminum not white metal (screen door handles)

That's one person's attempt at being different...and if Im not mistaken, I believe it was spec ops or ariakon that designed it first...this would just be a copy

Uhmm...actually, Tippmanns use higher grade aluminum than Spyders. And if their metal is better, how come you can run over a tippmann with a car and have it work perfectly? Or smash it against a tree by the barrel? Try that with a Spyder.

This is the only picture of NN's gun that I have. This was his first version. But this picture does it no justice.

Oh, and model98.net went down for some reason, no one know swhy.

and I never said I used their rentals...I use their fields because the kick tail. 700 acres and 52 fields...yes, most are wooded-but I don't just play in the woods. Of all the markers I've seen since 1986 (87?). theirs are the most whooped POS's Ive ever seen. Do they work? yes...they can lob paint down field and if you're lucky, hit someone before they move out of the way of the 5 balls per second you cannon-balled at them. Ropes are harder to get away from. And since I'm on the subject of ROF...all of you scenario players...you'd think you'd embrace the sheer speed of a Kingman electroframe over the Tip...simply to simulate the machine-gun nests...

same old boring marker.........

haha you make me laugh. Every Spyder is the exact same gun. They just come with different milling and different accessories. They throw a drop on the gun and call it a new gun. Or slap a gas-through grip on it.

Tippmanns have all been innovations. Tippmann made the first full-auto and semi-auto. Also the firtst gun to run off of a Constant Air source. Next came the beginning of the carbine line. They used semi-auto with a hopper. Then came the rest of the series, each gun was an improvement over the previous. The F/A allowed the use of mechanical full-auto with the use of a regular hopper thanks to the star feed system.

Then later on came the 98 and 98c. The 2 most upgradeable guns ever made. The a-5 also came with new stuff, like the cyclone feed, and moveable front grip.

letsee now. The first Spyder I can think of was the TL+ which just came with a beavertail and expansion chamber. My compact came with nothing. I had to go buy a bottomling kit just to run it effectively.

Lob paint downfield? Tippmanns and Spyders have ssame power and distance (unless Flatline i sused). 285fps is 285fps. And I never said i couldnt shoot faster, I said i didnt need a billlion balls per second.

Ok, Found more on NN's gun. Link.

If I remember correctly, He first put a minimorlock board in, eyes, Timmy noid and custom ram. He then upgraded to a trix LCD board with BB eyes. (If I remember correctly, I would talk to him about it cause I was very close to doing this to mine.)
