Old paintballer getting back in

So, I was really into paintball like 10 years ago. I had a Tippman 98 custom with an auto-response trigger. I had a tactical vest with remote co2 supply, a Rikochet AK feeder, and a DYE boomstick. I haven't touched my rig in about 4 years and was wondering if any of the stuff is still "good"? I mean could I go out and shoot some woods ball and not just get laughed at (well other than rusty skills).

Thanks. Do you think I could switch from co2 to Compressed air without any problem? I'm thinking compressed air is the way to go nowadays.

so long as you don't use a low pressure tank regulator, it's not any problem.

LOL I just read this and realized I am almost in the exact same boat... been about ten years got my old 98C, DYE barrel, vest, no richochet hopper though. Yeah definitely want to see what has changed in the last 5 years in paintball.

lots, as always but the 98 is still being produced (not quite as nice as it was 10 years ago but it still shoots paint) even though Ben Tippmann is now heading up BT not Tippmann

i wouldnt say its in the crapper but just that it doesnt live up to what the company was founded on either.

I was not impressed with the phenom when i shot one. way too much money for what it is and how it shoots. if you want a milsim marker in that price range i say go with the TM-7 instead
