Need upgrade advice on my -GODLY- Custom 98 (E-Bolt)

Current mods:
Barrel
Magazine attachment (looks)
Response Trigger
Stock
Cyclone Hopper
Carrying Rail

I need some advice on my next upgrades. I've tried a variety of barrels on my 2 Tippmann Custom 98s. Flatline, J&J, AA, and a couple cheap others. Nothing gives me as straight a shot as the one I'm currently using. So I'm definately NOT looking for a barrel upgrade.

I'm running on HPA.

My response trigger works awesome, but the last time I played, mid-day, the refs told me I couldn't use it, because it was firing full-auto. Is there an easy way to make the response trigger shoot slower?

I would like to get an E-bolt and remove the response trigger. Does the E-bolt have a single-shot mode to it? Or is semi-auto and 3 shot the lowest settings? I'd hate to have the refs give me more trouble at the place I play. Also, I'm having a hard time finding a place to purchase an E-bolt, but lots of places are selling the E-grip. I'm aware that the E-grip is for another Tippmann gun, the A-5 and model, and the E-bolt is made for the Custom 98 (which I have). But, someone who contacted Tippmann told me that an E-grip will work with a Custom 98 which has a serial # above 893000.
Is this true?

Also, another upgrade I want to get is a double trigger. I've read in other places that the brand doesn't make a difference. However, the JCS double trigger is marketed for use with E-gripped A5s. Will this trigger work better on my E-bolted, or if possible, E-gripped 98 Custom? Also, do the double triggers come with the housing for the trigger? The metal part that goes around it, cause I imagine the double trigger to be longer, and come further down than the stock.

I'm currently using a cyclone with my Custom 98. It's working pretty well so far. But as I said, I'm taking out the response trigger soon, and going to add an E-bolt or E-grip (if possible). Probably will keep it in semi-auto mode. But will the Halo B give me any advantage over the Cyclone? If so, I'll get it.. I don't mind putting as much money into my GODLY Tippmann as it takes. Thanks. Please give me some good advice.


PS. I don't want a remote line, drop forward, scope or laser.

So does yours meet the serial number requirement for getting the E-grip? If so, I would get the E-grip for the 98. It's different than the A-5 kit.

If you find an E-bolt, which was discontinued a while ago, that stock will be coming off because the E-bolt ram attaches in the same place (replaces the end cap).

Where's the serial number? Also, from all I've read, I don't know if I should take this guy's word that the E-grip will work on my Custom 98. I'm hoping someone here can testify to it working, and if so.. tell me how it compares to an E-bolt on a Custom 98, if there's any difference.

I believe u can now get e-grips on 98 customs but I'm not positive. If you're going to get it I'd say get a double trigger, any will work. I'm pretty sure all of them come with housings but with a few you have to cut off a bit of the grip. Also, if you're going to get an e-grip and you think you can outshoot your cyclone (15bps i think?), then go get a halo B.

It works on the new ones. They're the same casting as the custom pro's.
Serials used to be on right side above the grip, by the 'this is not a toy' stamping.

If I'm not mistaken that sear style is E-grip compatible.
