new player + tippmann model 98 = HELP

I started playing about 3 or 4 months ago with my boyfriends spyder, but I decided I should buy my own and maybe get some of my girlfriends to play.
I just bought a tippmann model 98 about 2 months ago. I'm using the original 8.5" barrel with the regular Co2 intake and everything and realizing that it needs a lot of upgrading.

Suggestions PLEASE.

Get a new barrel. A J&J Ceramic is a great one. I have a flatline for mine and its incredible but the only thing is, it costs a lot. I think its worth it though. You should try getting a double trigger for a faster fire rate. Or if you have a lot of money try a responce trigger. That will really increase your fire rate.

I say get a decent barrel first. J&J or a teardrop will be good (50ish dollars)

Barrel is always the big first upgrade for most guns, but mostly for the 98c. What kinda play are you into?(speedball or woodsball)

Barrel first (J&J ceramic 14")
12 Volt revvie (smoke shells are sexy)
HPA tank (can be used on your next gun)

Also Check the Tippmann Super Stickey it has alot of priceless info in there.

new barrel, I recommend the 32* whisper barrel. IMO it is one of the best 1 piece barrels out there
