Tippmann has been setting the standard for entry level paintball guns since the beginning of time. The Tippmann 98 Custom Platinum has to be their flagship gun as it can be seen in just about every store and paintball field in the world. This paintball gun is the field owner's rental paintball gun of choice, as it is one of the easiest guns on the market to maintain and fix if anything does go wrong. These guns are meant to withstand any condition - rain, sleet or snow. They have a great feel in your grip with the front handle setup away from the hosing.
Now, let's go over what makes the ACT just a bit different.
Tippmann 98 Custom ACT Benefits:
The Tippmann ACT system, which stands for anti-chop technology is patent-pending technology. This technology has truly made the 98 an even more efficient gun.
It does so by drastically reducing ball chopping (paint breaking when you shoot). Essentially what it does, is makes it so the bolt is much softer when it hits the paintball. This reduces the number of times you need to stop during play in order to clean out your barrel. Nothing is more annoying than chopping paint and the ACT reduces the headache of cleaning out your barrel. With the 98 Custom ACT, that's time you can spend in the game!
Not a bad little piece of technology for just an extra $20 bucks.
