Tippman 98 modding help?

Hello everyone, My buddy has a tippman 98c and he wants to get an etrigger on it, but he doesnt know how to, does anyone have a link to a tutorial or can just write a quick one with a link to a trigger.
also not sure if he should use a mech or electronic?

Thanks in advance.

From what I quickly found on teh Googlez -


An eTrigger for a T98C runs about $100.
A Response trigger for the same marker is roughly $70

The marker, new, was about $120.


Your buddy is looking at putting almost 100% of the purchase price of his marker, back into the same marker?

No matter how polished and glossy and nice you believe you can get a T98 to be, it will always be a T98. It will perform its function, but will not be anything special. Pumping money into marker upgrades for the sake of upgrading a marker is probably the single worst use of finances in paintball, especially at entry level. For $100 more, your buddy can look into a used FEP Quest, Invert Mini, one or more of the Smart Parts markers (though I'm not openly suggesting them) - all of which will shoot, function, and perform significantly better than a T98C

A Spyder Fenix/Azodin Blitz is roughly $50 more than the eTrigger, and includes firing modes, electronics, an electronic trigger, eyes...

With the T98c, you get... a run of the mill rental marker.

The only suggested upgrade for a T98 would be a J&J ceramic barrel. Beyond that, push your money into buying paint, or saving for your next marker.

You can only polish a turd so much...

Okay, Thank you for the input, we were kindof thinking the same thing might be the case.
I'll let you know how it goes!

i agree, if he wants more performance now the best solution would be a spyder fenix or azodin blitz as they are both right around $150, have e-frame and eyes, regulator, firing modes, double finger adjustable trigger and are lighter and easier to work on than the tippmann.

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that makes a firearm better makes a paintball marker worse. They are 2 very different worlds with nothing except a trigger in common
