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.

The Tippmann 98 Custom is probably the most common rental gun on most fields. This is because of its simplicity, durability, able to customize it, etc. There are PLENTY of upgrades available for the 98. These upgrades include stocks, expansion valve chambers, the flatline barrell , response trigger, e-trigger, cyclone feed system, to name a few.

Pros:
-EXTREMELY durable
-plenty of upgrades available to make it a complete new marker
-Reliable performance, espically for the 98 A.C.T. (Anti-chop technology).
-One of the BEST guns for woodsball

Cons:
-Cost of upgrades will start adding up to be hundreds of dollars
-Nothing special about the stock 98.
-Upgrades make the gun heavy and have a high profile.
-Not the best gun for airball, when you're shooting 5bps.

I've been playing with my 98 Custom for about 10 years now, and I surely love the thing. It's always there when I need it, it never quits, and it still shoots fools in the mask. Upgradability is ridiculous. The perfect solution for woodsball and scenario players alike. Also great for anyone who doesn't want to have to fiddle with their marker too much.

Plain and simple great marker. this was one of my first markers ever owned, great reliable marker for scenario and woodsball and even a slow paced speedball game. They only problem I have ever had with the marker is using c02 which well c02 sucks and the cheap screws they used to hold body together.
No it's not fancy or any crazy milling but just a great reliable design that you can customize and throw in your gear bag to have as a fun backup or spend the money and have a pretty neat primary. Would def buy another one if ever needed to.
