    Posted: 14 January 2007 at 12:48am

I am deciding whether to keep my 98 custom (all stock parts) and add onto it or buy an A-5 with the upgrades that i want (birthday is comin up) I want a gun that has accuracy, semi-auto, powerful shots, and comfortable.  Anyone want to suggest which one is better overall and what parts i should add to which?  Thanks

It's all personal preference. Since you already have a 98c and plan to stick to woodsball, I would keep it. Look into a cyclone, new barrel, RT, etc for it and enjoy.

although this has been asked numerous times, i'll say whats good and bad about both.

The A-5 has the cyclone (which i don't really care for), its a little bit more upgradable than the 98 custom but its also a little bit heavier (which i don't mind)

the 98c is easy for a beginner, its a little easy to strip and clean IMO and is a little bit more dependable than the A-5. It doesn't have the cyclone (like before, not too big to me) but its also lighter than the A-5

but in your situation i would just keep the 98c and add stuff to it, if you really want to, get an A-5, but all your really getting in the A-5 is a bulked up 98 custom with a cyclone and possibly an RT of E-grip

edit - or you could of been a little less lazy and read the thread sticky-d above this.

It's best to restrain yourself from talking back to noobs, they're very territorial and easily angered. Then they will attempt to abuse you, with back up from other noobs, because they work in packs.
