The main stumbling block for Tippmanns are the heavy internals which means heavy recoil.  This leads to inaccuracy compared to many other guns.  Sometimes it's just fun to pull the trigger on a 98 and have the gun bouncing around all over the place in your hands.

Depends, they're both rock solid.

I haven't been on these forums in a long time. I was just fooling around and seeing if I could pick up an electric sear tripping 98c since they have those kits now instead of ebolts. I thought it'd be real fun to put my proto in the bag and come out with a 98c on full auto with my VLocity. Even better if I had one with PSP ramping.

It'd be a solid loaner gun and fun to play with.

Overall... A tippmann is not even close to as good as a dm6, you'd be nuts to think so. It might be able to throw paint as fast with upgrades, but otherwise they are in 2 different leagues. Anyone that thinks otherwise has probably not shot another gun.

Yeah, you DM lovers are right it doesnt stand a chance on the speedball field. Thats why there are two perfessional teams that use Tippmanns.

the guy at my pro shop thinks tippmanns are the best guns for woodsball and timmy's are the best speedball guns. which i agree i wouldn't care for a tippmann if i was playing speedball i'd want a evil pimp or something like that.
Canadians do it on top.

Kinda interesting how they aren't D1, or D2, D3 (right...?) and they are not even very good for a D3 team!

Tippmann sponsors them. The team will use whatever "free" gear they are given.
