First, Read the stickys if you havent yet
second, its all personal preference and depends on the situation
for me, i like the 98 custom, because i can stay on a low budget and still play some decent ball with a reliable marker.

they can be made to be pretty similar. Out of the box, the A5 is best, followed by 98 custom pro.

custom pro. They preform way better than a-5's. I took mine stock and tested it against my friends a-5 stock and the custom pro performed better. ALso the custom pro comes with a drop and double trigger for cheaper than a stock a-5

But it is your choice.

Custom Pro is last on my list, It is a 98 c with bad upgrades, and about $50 more.

If I had to chose between a stock 98c and an A-5, i'd take the A-5, BUT for the same price as the A-5 you can get a 98 c with an e-trig.... So i say get a 98c with an e-trig.

I like the 98C better. I think the halves fit better. I also think the valve is better. I also don't like the cast tombstone on the A-5. I also don't like the extra height for the cocking handle. That upper tube.

I just got a tippmann 98 Custom pro and that is one hell of a good gun. Shoots solid, love the Double trigger. If i wasn't so broke i'd slap on an E-trigger.
