Hey guys, today i saw my friends new A-5, and he was showing me how great the cyclone ffed worked. I really liked it. Well, I've seen the tippmann cyclone feed kit for the 98 custom. I think I would like to buy it. Theres one problem though, how difficult is it to install, I'm just really scared that ill mess up, or that it will be extremely difficult to install. So basically my question is:

How difficult is it to install the Cyclone feed kit on a tipppmann 98 custom basic ACT (Basically, the newest line of 98's)

ALSO:

Does the cyclone feed work with a response triggger, i wanted to get the response, but ive heard of people getting really low psi's when combing the two.

Thanks in advance.

its not crazy difficult to install but its also not that good of a hopper, it is very hard on paint and will turn into a blender if you try to use high grade tourney paint, it uses gas so you will see a efficiency decrease and is a fairly large target on the side of your marker

whatever tippmann wants for it you can get a better hopper for less money.

entry level markers like your 98 are not worth upgrading and sinking tons of money into, for the price of the RT and the cyclone plus a little extra or the money you would get for selling the 98 you can easily pick up a great mid level marker that will out-preform the 98 stock

look into a standard hopper, right now the empire magna is selling for $50 which is a great price for it and then look into a good 4500 psi HPA tank. the hopper will make sure you are not getting chops and if you want to go onto a mid level marker the HPA will be required and will help the performance of your 98.

if you get the cyclone on the other hand, it has to stay with the 98, the magna can be taken off the 98 and go onto whichever marker you get next, same with the HPA tank, RT can not

THanks trbo. How much do 98's sell for anyway? and is the empire magna a good hopper?

depends on how upgraded they are, stock and in good shape you can generally get around $100 for them though

magnas are basically a empire reloader with the magnetic clutch system, empire reloader is basically a sound activated halo B. great hoppers and at $50 a really good deal. i have a empire reloader with a suicide shell as a backup

Cool, thanks for all your info trbo, I apreciate it. That magnetic clutch system looks pretty sophisticated, i was reading about it and how it works.
