I had a 98 and it wasnt bad. Actually liked it. Had a few a-5's. No problems except with an rt trigger. But no problems with the cyclone.
Alot of it will depend on feel. I prefer the rifle type. But now I dont know after playing with cockers so long. I am getting a procarbine since I found my old all american barrel that will fit it. So i will have to find out.

well if you want to try speedball dont get an a-5 from experience... the cyclone sticks way too far out the side...
pmi black maxx -noob walmart gun
pmi piranha- next level up noob gun
cci phantom- pump marker, still play with it on occassion
98 custom- great marker, but it didnt keep up with my playing
2 a-5's- well i needed two and still wasnt happy
and finally my sp-1 which i find works the best for me, i do alot of running around the field, and where we play it's extremly rocky so i needed something durable and light... if you havent checked out the sp-1 before you totally should
anyways it totally depends on what you're using it for...

1. Has less Internal Parts
2. Easy to Mod (reshaping the whole body)
3. Is more Air/Co2 efficient than the A5
4. Much Lighter than the A5
5. Cheaper to purchase than an A5
EDIT: I forgot one....any hopper can be used on a 98.

However, if you feel dedicated to being a Tippmann fan I would search for a Pro/Carbine. Provided you aren't into spraying out the paint it's built using far nicer materials. It embodied the "reliable" image Tippmann built up before they started coming out with cheaply made mass produced clamshell designs.
