So I've been looking for good beginner's gun and I think I'm gonna go for a tippman 98 custom or similar gun.

so here are a few I found on rs or craigslist, assuming they are as good as the seller claims them to be.

RS 98 Custom

craigslist 98 Custom

craigslist 98 custom 2

no idea what it's max fire is at, i have the Reloader B2, so technically my gun should be rated at over 30bps, but I cant walk it that well so i would have to test it on ramping if anything

i just rock semi auto anyways for woods, when i'm playing woods with the reloader set at high speed it costs too much lol

yeah if your ganna ramp wit max rate of fire dont lol. cap it at 15 or 20bps or else its ganna be messy and alot of ball breaks hhaha i tried it. yeah running uncapped wit a halo to feed 35bps is a BIG PAINT BILL... especially for speedball lol

don't buy walmart/cdn tire, those guns don't shoot any straighter or efficient.

IF i were you (and if you don't want to buy an ion), just but a Tippman 98 barrel, and bring it to any rental place, and just swap the barrely everytime you play.

The only reason that rentals sometimes don't shoot straight is because their barrels are dirty and abused.

Your wasting your money if you buy a starter kit. you might as we light your 20's on fire, that'd be more fun.

so everyone here is a woodsballer?

ugh.


I play IPL, and next season hopefully MXL... now ex-girlfriend has an airball field and a big bushball field on her property. Speedball is expensive, but it helps having sponsors paying almost cost for everything...

even with that, last season i dropped 5-6g's into paintball.

i got a A-5 RT for sale with riser and red dot scope and 300 round hopper.

My 1st gun is a Tippmann A-5 and i love that thing to death i've had it for 3 years and it has served me very well never had to visit a tech booth during games, and if you drop it or scratch it you won't cry about it. I also picked up a 2010 PMR for christmas with a free rotor and that's my main gun now even though i'll never get rid of my A-5 i still use it to warm up for a few games before going to my PMR.

if there's anything i learned from when i was first starting my kit. I would'v egone with a good mask Like any JT spectra lense. they never fog. it doesn't matter how good your gun is if you can't see cuz you're lense is fogging up. also i would completely skip the Co2 tank and just save up for an air tank even a steely will do. why? because if all you need is a tank most fields will let you borrow an air tank for free or in exchange for ID instead of using CO2 with your gun. and 3 save up for a mid range gun anything above 200 brand new will do a-5,x-7,G4,PMR,etek,don't buy a mini.
