I am mostly low budget (15 in high school with no allowance) and already have a 98c that hasn't given me any unfixable probelms, should I buy an A5 as the next step up, or keep the 98c?

yeah. hold out with the 98 until you can save more and afford a better marker.

I have just seen how many more things the a5 has on the market, compared to the 98c, but i don't want to waste my money being tempted by things that I don't need

98c + cyclone = A-5

So dont waste the money on the a5, just buy a cheap elctronic hopper or the 98c cyclone and you will have the same thing. Or save for something better.

If youre 98 is not giving you any problems now, save up....because sooner or later, problems will pop up.

It depends on why you want the A5. If the only reason you want it, is because of the cyclone feed don't get the A5. Instead just get the cyclone feed upgrade for the 98C.

Either spend your money upgrading your 98/making it your own, or just save up for a higher-end gun. Its not worth it to go from 98-A5

Defintely stay with the 98C. I have an A5 but have used my 98C's quite a few times since I got it. I still love my 98C's

Keep the 98 for sure. Definatly do not upgrade to another lowend mech. Is that even an upgrade?
If you want a new gun that will actually be an upgrade, get a mag.

to be honest, i missed my 98 when i got my a5. theyre so much lighter.
id say test whatever marker youre thinking about before buying. i traded my a5 for an ion(s), and i hated the ion too. i just hated the batteries. im now trading the ion for another a5. im willing to make the sacrafices that you get with tippmanns.

I already have bought the Cyclone, but I don't use it on auto because it's a ball monster in my hands. If I were able to upgrade to an automag, what would you suggest for me, since I am so prone to single shot, precision along with mobility. (I am sort of a sniper/commander/light rifleman, biggest on the rifleman though)

mags are pretty much good to go right away. you can get them used for about 100
