This is just an idea that I came up with while shopping for a new gun. My plan is to buy a 98CPro-E ACT and instead of buying an expensive electronic hopper to go with it I would buy the Cyclone Feed System for 98s. I figure I don’t really need a high dollar system for the gun since it has ACT but I would probably end up buying an electronic hopper anyways. Buying the Cyclone feed system saves me money on batteries and is less likely to break since it doesn’t involve any electronics while an electronic hopper would be able to be put on any other or future guns that I get. And since the Cyclone feed system is only $60 it is about the same price as a decent electronic hopper. I just want to know what you guys think about this idea and what would be the better decision. Any input is greatly appreciated.

Here is one more option, I could get an A-5 with an E-trigger for just a little bit more than a 98CProE and cyclone feed. The only downsides to this is that i already have a J&J Barrel for a 98 and that A-5s are a little bulky in speedball. Also I have had experience with a 98 and know their quality and durability while I have never had any experience with an A-5 and dont know how they compare to the funtionality of a 98. I was planning on getting a gun that is both a speedball and woddsball gun which is why I am going for the E-trigger. Durability and fixabilty are also very important which is why i am getting a Tippmann. Any imput is still greatly appreciated.

I'm supposing you've investigated the other guns available? I'd stay away from the A-5. To many people I know are having probs running them on HPA. The 98C is a good gun that will run on HPA well and the Cyclone is an easy upgrade. Overall the Cyclone is nice on the 98 but the fact that you can get a Halo B or Empire B and use it on other guns is fairly attractive. Another thing. If you can get a 98C without the ACT for a better price don't hesitate. If you run a Cyclone or E-hopper you won't chop anyways.

I am planning on running the gun on CO2 if that makes any difference besides maybe having to get a low pressure system for a 98. Also the ACT and non-ACT gun are the exact same price where I am getting it from. Thanks for your input.
