Hey man whats up..well I have a tippman 98c with an R/t, and a 98pro with an E trigger. With these set ups I have compared and used both many times. I do prefer the response trigger. I've encountered only to flaws, it doesn't work all that well in colder weather, and you have to recock it sometime during fire, "jams" so to speak, but I added a hopper that could keep up with the response trigger turned up, it rips pretty well. The e-trigger is nice don't get me wrong, doesn't freeze in cold or jam at all, but it is a different feel, i like the response trigger cause you can easilychange your ROF, or BPS in seconds, easier to turn down than an e trigger, you can get different BPS rates than an e tirgger. They both are good, I play scenario and love my response trigger. to be honest if I had to do it all over, I would have just gotten the a-5 with egrip. That thing rips.

I would have to say it depends really, both are a good buy. The thing is, what do you want more, more options or more durability? The R/T is far more durable where as the E-Grip has more options and is easier to use and tune.

Just an update.
I ended up going with the R/T, and other than the fact that I'm using up a bit more air that before, it's working pretty well.

We were out yesterday and it was pretty wet. I was having a kick watching all the guys with electrics trying to keep their components dry.

I love Tippmanns.

Good choice. I have an R/T and it hasn't let me down even in the worst conditions. Make sure you get a lot of practice with tuning it and finding that sweet spot. After a few matches you'll feel like a pro with it.

Recently, my gun froze up substantially on a cold, humid day when I was really laying down a lot of paint with my 98 with response trigger and cyclone, which I love. But, when it froze up, I started losing range, the more I shot. I assumed it was because of the co2, so I've tried going to an HPA, now I can't get the response trigger to work, and I can't get the gun to fire more than about 260 fps. I've posted this frustration elsewhere and don't have any responses yet. I really love my R/T, but don't know why the air isn't working right. Any ideas?

R/T's dont eat gas... I like mech only markers so I support the R/T. I personally thin the R/T is way cooler then the E-Trigger. Its cheaper too. And you dont need to move your fingers around on the trigger and find the sweet spot really. The R/T can be adjusted and tuned so you can just squeeze the trigger harder/softer in pretty much any spot and it will either shoot faster/slower, depending on how hard you pull the trigger.

You could have ruined the little O-ring on the RT.

Orpackrat, I checked the o-ring on the RT and it looks OK, however, the o-ring on the connection from the line to the cyclone feeder is pretty chewed up. Could this be causing the problem?

I'd just like to point out that in the Mods & Upgrades Room, almost every single help thread is about problems with the E-grip, not the R/T.

i would say go for the cyclone and the ape rampage board. the only problem is you will have to get hpa and upgrade your cyclone

If its leaking air, how will it push the piston forward. O-rings are not meant to be chewed up, replace it and see how it goes.

Quick thing to point out. With the E-trigger/E-grip, you have some options. When i picked up my A5, it had an E-grip. I think it was one of the originals and it has a screw that you had to use to change the settings. I replaced it with an APE Rampage board. The Rampage board is waterproof and easy to change modes. The only thing you have to do is depress a button and you change modes.

Full auto, you don't really need it. You will just waste paint and are more prone to breakage.
