what should I customize?

Well I just recently started playing paintball, mostly backyard stuff, we got a bunch of land to play it on. We set up makeshift bunkers and we have fun. I have a tippmann 98 custom, we all do, me and everyone i play with which is family, and I am looking to upgrade it but I wanted to know what would the best choice be for an upgrade, my uncle already has a 14 inch barrel, which we saw made a difference in the power and distance in the shot. I was just wondering whatyou guys (being the more experienced players) recomend.

Barrel is good for starts. Do not get above a 16in barrel. Also I am not sure about the power and distance your uncle saw. Unless he turned up his velocity the "power" would be about the same. The only way to increase "distance" is to get a flatline barrel which put backspin on the ball. All guns will pretty much shoot the same distance becasue of gravity. Barrel mainly increases accuracy which the stock barrel is very unaccurate.

Barrel first then get an agitating hopper then get your tank antisiphoned and get a vertical adaptor with palmers reg.

If i were you i would get

A 14" J&J ceramic barrel (The one piece unless you have lots of money)
A Delrin bolt to reduce breakage
And an expansion chamber

I would suggest a barrel, a double trigger, and an electric hopper.

maybe a drop forward if your gun is heavy on the back side when you have your tank on.

Is putting a reg on a tippy really worth it when you think about it?

The reg is easily removed. It's probably the best way to keep the velocity constant, HPA aside.

If you are running CO2 you should run a regulator if you want ANY kind of consistency
