Getting started

I have a tippmann 98c, bout to buy a J&J 16in ceramic barrel and a empire reloader. Next I'm going to buy a response trigger. I play woods ball and I'm bout to start playing some speedball. For woodsball I'm going to get a flatline to swap out. For speedball ill have the J&J. Should I keep upgrading my 98c for speedball or buy a cheaper ego and slowly upgrade it for speedball and just use the 98 for woodsball??

Buy a cheap ego for speedball your best bet would be 7 or 8. Keep the 98c for woodsball.

personally id go with a cheap dm but anything from 07 or 08 will be cheap(er) and will work just fine. although the reason im getting a dm 12 instead of anything boblong is because my feild has multiple dm certified techs while bl id have to send back if anything went wrong. you should check with your feild see what guns their techs know and whatnot because having them do it for next to nothing or free and having it same day is much better

take it from a guy who spent money on a a-5 response and flatline. GET A NEW GUN. They're honestly not worth upgrading and any speedball gun will fair much better in woods than any tipmann. Repsonse trigger and flatline will be near 200 installed....just GET A NEW GUN.

agreed.

I would suggest an 07 ego best older gun out there. Easy to maintain and shoots smooth as can be. has a little kick but you can play with the dwell on it and lower it and tune it to what you prefer. Anything planet eclipse you really cant go wrong with. I wouldn't suggest the etek because of resale value though. Etha I have not shot yet so that I don't know either.

I wouldn't get a 16" barrel either. Stick with a 14. Especially on a tippmann. The gun is long enough already. The ceramic is great. If you get any breaks you can shoot them out. I used one for years on my automag. You need a tighter setup for Speedball so I would definitely get a used ego our DM.

I wouldn't use a 98 for speedball, although you can. I don't play speedball often, but when I do, I use a double trigger on my A5 and it seems to work just fine. Get a good electropneumatic and you'll do fine! I think the ReLoader you have is fine for speedball. Keep playing!

Yeah dont keep on upgrading the gun. Just for future reference look to buy guns that have upgrades in them already. For instance, I remember when people bought Ion (Smart Parts) and upgraded everything from boards to barrel. You are better off just buying a high end gun with all that money spent.

Dont know what kind of tank you are using now. But buy a compressed air tank instead of using CO2. It is cheaper on the long run.
