Pros: They don't break. Ever.
Cons: The stock barrel is a joke. Seriously.
So, I have been using a tippmann all my life. My dads original tippmann 98c it's about 10-12 years old now and it still works like a freaking charm. It is name proof. I have bought a new one now but my older brother still uses "ole reliable" to great effect. Oh, and I forgot to mention. My dad never cleaned it. Not once. When he officially gave it to me I instantly took it apart to see if he has done anything under the hood. The only thing I found was ten years of built up paint. It didn't slow down the 98 at all. I was the person to take it apart in ten years. It hasn't even been oiled!!!

So yeah, it Is worth every penny! And you can turn it in to whatever you want!!! Just buy a new barrel!

Even with water dripping out of my gun it still shoots without a problem and dead on! I would recommend this gun to everyone who wants to play!

The Tippmann Custom 98 is THE industry standard rental marker. If you ever have rented to play paintball this is likely the marker you will get. That being said the Tippmann 98 is tough marker. It was built for woodsball, parts are cheap and easy to replace. The marker is a veritable tank of abuse for many. There are many different types of upgrades available and the marker can be purchased for $50 at resale.

Overall I think the gun is great. I've had it for 2 years and i can't recall every chopping a ball. Really good on air. Cleans easy. Very affordable.

Its kind of heavy. The stock barrel is pretty bad. The feedneck could be upped as well.

The most common rental gun that you see on most fields, the Tippmann 98 Custom is one of the best woodsball/starter markers out there. Having owned a 98, I realized the simplicity and reliability of this marker. Great performance also comes with the sheer amount of customizability, and by purchasing upgrades like response trigger, e-trigger, stock, expansion valve chamber, drop forward, cyclone feed system, flatline barrel , double trigger, the list goes on.

Pros:
-EXTREMELY DURABLE (what could you do to a 98 to make it STOP shooting?)
-Ease of use right out of the box
-Reliable and cheap at the same time
-upgrades make it a new gun
-AMAZING woodsball gun

Cons:
-Not the best gun for airball, when you're shooting 5 bps.
-Nothing special about a bone stock 98.
-Upgrades cost a fortune when added up, put more weight on it, and makes a high profile.
