Threading that'll fit a Tippmann 98C....

Turned 19 today...Went to the local paintball shop and got myself a Tippmann 98 Custom (Don't even think about saying anything...I did my research and read for weeks of mixed reviews) Anyway...My ego eclipse barrel doesnt fit. What brands can I find in 14-16" barrels that'll fit into my Tippmann 98C? I know winters coming so fast, but I'm trying to get the gun all set for spring. Thanks for your help in advance.

-Ben

Nah. I'm really not a newbie 100%....I started playing last year and had a friend give me his ego eclipse barrel (14") for my spyder sonix. Decided to get back into it, get a tippmann for my woodsball craze, and let my girlfriend/brother/friends use the spyder. I played airsoft prior to paintball. and I'm not talking crap plastic. I'm talking 300.00 full metal replicas....I have an interest more for paintball now.

That's it. It's an Eclipse. My bad. Also...this finding of a tippmann barrel is much harder than I thought. I saw a cyclone one but then I look at J&J's ceramic photos and the threading isnt the same...I also saw a Werks barrel....can someone link me to someone that will fit my 98C? And a decent one at that? I don't need a super expensive, but I need something decent.

if you take care of it it should be just as reliable. yes theres the looks argument but i havnt noticed that the OP is really going for the looks. and at any rate the spyder is still going to be used in the woods just by someone else
