a-5 all the way, you all are whining about how much heavier it is, i personally cant tell the difference. Hmmm, maybe that means im getting stronger.....=) The a-5 doesnt block any targets off for me (im a lefty if it makes any difference.) Yous said its too much a target so get the sleeker r-5 hopper and its padded inside so you wont make alot of noise when running. Now when upping for just speedball the 98c is better because you have the ability to make it shoot faster, since the a-5 pretty much maxes out at 18bps. The a-5 on the otherhand can be setup for both speed or woods like mine currently is and i own all in both (unless you got like ppl with dm5's lighting up a bunker and keeping you pinned.)

TH1, that is the same I was thinking. All these members keep yelling at P8ntBallKing10. It doesn't seem like he even cares what we are telling him to do as in not upping old threads.

Perhaps he didnt get your point when you threw lauging smilies and ignorant remarks at him. He obviously was confused about what he was doing. Almost flaming if you ask me... Me and ghost are helping him ourselves though, so thank us for improvment, dont thank yourselves...

I owned the 98 (not 98c) and A-5, they have many similarities, and a few differences. My vote goes for the A-5. It is simple in design and easier to break down and maintain then the 98. I like how the top of the 98 is closer to the barrel, not as far offset as the A-5. Also the front sight that gives you access to the chamber is cool. But these are the only ups on the A-5 that the 98 has to me. The most reconizable feature is that stock the A-5 comes with a good hopper. If you are going to buy a hopper for the 98 to get it up to the level with the A-5 remember, you can mod the A-5 to use a different faster hopper as well. Most people find the cyclone satisfactory. There are so many 98 out I understand people voting for them, but if you look side by side and then use them the A-5 has advantages. I would not go back to a 98. If your complaining about the weight difference between the A-5 and 98 I must say don't be such a vagina. You can do things to make it lighter if it makes that much a difference.

See....he has experience first hand both markers....most of us havent (i have)....and i really dont see too much of a weight difference in the guns...so dont make that such a deciding factor.
