Have you considered the Ion?
What kind of paintball do you play?
What is your total budget, including accesories, air tank, etc?

if you are new, get a basic custom pro or maybe just a regular custom.  deside if you wanna play enough to get serious.  good luck.

dont go spending tons of money at first...start off basic with something customizable...but dont start customizing until you are sure that you want to continue playing

my friend bought a $400 autococker used it once and has not played since...now he just loans it to other people

98s are the most abundant marker (at least where i live).  the prices to get them repaired (if you can't do it yourself) are dirt cheap.  plus, they don't have any polymer like the a-5.  not that the polymer is not durable, but it's just not as durable as aluminum....  also, because of their popularity, alot of upgrades are available to suit your tastes....  i wish i would have gone with a 98 instead of my a-5.... but that's just my tastes....  A-5s are still great markers.
