I am going to get my 98 custom rebuilt, I'm just wondering if, one can the 98 custom sill be effective in woods ball. Two I believe the power tube is broke, there's no good average on the crony.

Yes a 98 is still a good woods ball marker. I still have mine even after almost 9 years of use, abuse, and tinkering with the darn thing.

As for the problems your averages over the crono, alot of it depends on a few things.
1. What kind of condition is the main spring it.
2. How clean the internals are.
3. And if there is a the right kind and amount of lube used.

If you think that the power tube is broken go a head and take the 98c apart and check for any cracks on the skinny end or the back end.

I think that I'm going to buy the new 98 custom, I got the accessories still and its not too expensive for me. I got the save up for all the mics. but co2 guns work best in warmer weather.

Why get a new one when you already has on that might need just a little work and you have all your accessories that work with it.

Also the newer 98c have alot of changes from the old ones. For example when Tippmannn added the ACT to their guns they changed the design of the rear bolt, added a new spring, and redid the end cap. This means that if you got a stock then it might not work with the new gun.

It might just be easier, not to mention less expensive, to replace the power tube then to go and buy a new 98c

Sometime the velocity screw can completely fall out of the power tubes, especially if you have to adjust a lot
Get a flashlight and see if it's still even in there (you should see the hex head if it's there, you'll only see threads if it's not)

if you have never taken it apart and cleaned and lubed it, that could be your problem


98c are good guns, if you like it, you can get complete rebuild kits

You can go to a local shop if you have one and they probably have the parts.

Thanks for the site klutz, you just saved me alot of money and time. I can name and fix, replace any part on my Tippmann, only thing is I have no idea about the power tube assembly or the Valve. I know its tricky to change out.
You guys got any advice because my local pro-shop said it was fine, but the guy was clearly stoned and they aways are.
