he said that he is getting one not that he did. how much do you want to spend? if you are buying one new then there are other guns that you can get for the same price that are better like a used ion. look around and look at the specs.im getting a Tippman 98 custom and i was wondering if it is a good gun.
there are many, many reasons that there are better starting markers than a tippman. You, however, seem stuck in the ways so I'm not even going to bother dignifying you with a proper response.why are you guys telling him he should get a different gun? the 98 is an excellent gun, and has been for over a decade. it's also perfect for a beginner as it is well known so help will be easy to find, it's also a relatively simple as far as the mechanics go and anyone can figure out how it works and how to clean it and all. it's a very reliable gun on top of that, and the upgrades available to it can make it match most any marker out there in a woodsball game so i don't know why people keep saying "keep it stock, don't waste money upgrading it"...it's been teh most well known name in paintball forever for a reason...98 with e-grip or response trigger and a cyclone feed with good barrel can drop bodies all day in the right hands.
so you guys can take yer thousand dollar guns and shove em right up yer pompous ... ok, i'm getting carried away now, but i'm right
lol, i'm not stuck on the 98 custom...i don't even have a 98 custom, i used to have a spyder, and i've used ions before,among other brands. i don't claim to be the paintball guru, i just think you guys talk down to these poor beginners and act like they've made a mistake when they made a fine decision.there are many, many reasons that there are better starting markers than a tippman. You, however, seem stuck in the ways so I'm not even going to bother dignifying you with a proper response.
fire with fire..
the people bashing beginners and sending them packing with incorrect impressions about certain productsWho's the asshole now?
well... The Tippman is the rental gun at the paintball place where I go...So...Usually rental guns are supposed to be bad or worst than a players own gun... But in this case they would be the same... so I would not suggest it... Like some of the others I would suggest Spyder Guns but... That is just me...
hardly. you can win a game with anything if you know what youre' doing. This discussion is about the value of products, not "this will make you play better."Yes they are well Known and easy to use... but if you are going to WIN some games... then you need a Good gun...
no, that quote is what you should do...but those words are quite a twist of the reality i'm speaking about.So telling them that there is something out there that performs similerly, if not better than the 98c to try and help people make their own informed choices is now considered being an asshole?
Brian.Damage... Whats ur problem... A tippman is an okay beginner gun i guess but due to its poor Accuracy and very poor Bps... Y would you ever want it... Like I stated before... The tippman 98 custom is the rental gun at the paintball place that I go to... Meaning... Its a very poor gun...
