I've owned a few 98's in my life and this marker has never let me down yet. It will take a beating and ask for more. Ive played in the rain, snow, mud, sand and the marker never let me down. Parts are easy to come by and usually cheap. Tippmann customer service is also top notch, so even when a problem does occur, they are always there to help. There are lots and lots of parts to put on the 98 custom. This marker is a great marker for someone starting and most hardened vets still have them in the gear bag. Pick one of these up and go have some fun!

I own the 98 custom pro and it is amazing. Sure it doesn't meet my current tournament style play but for a beginner, best gun to get. Low maintenance and extremely reliable. I have the ACT system in it and it rarely breaks/chops any balls. If you know someone getting into paintball or plan on giving someone a paintball gun, this is your best bet.

Cons: Hammer gets a little jumpy
This was my first marker. It was a little inaccurate with the flatline, with balls flying in quite a few directions, but it worked and was reliable. It has one of the most consistent Co2 firings I've seen. But, the hammer on the side can get messed up and it shoots air full auto. Never seen it chop paint before, and you can even play without a barrel! (Ish.) Overall, good beginner/rental gun tos start with.
