Tippmann Custom Pro Review!

Tippmann custom pro review from experienced player: I've been playing paintball for about 5 years now and i have NEVER scene a more reliable gun, this was the second gun i had (after my spyder broke) and it broke down after 5 years for the first time on my fault of not oiling gun, which is an hour at your local paintball store (the trigger spring/trigger board was loosened) it may not be the best gun as far as an experienced player but if your going to go once in a while or don't want to get serious especially with cash you don't need to its about $200 for basic set (gun barrel, gravity hopper, neck, dropforward, and the gun itself) as far as what else you need for it would be a CO2 (basic tank and cheaper) or if you want to have a good gun with a somewhat serious player get a HPA/N tank (high pressured air/nitrogen) it will cost about an extra 100 bucks (68ci/3000-4500psi) over a 20oz CO2 tank, but you will get a better tank with more shots (about an extra 500) easier refilling, and most importantly when you refill you will never break O-rings (when an O-ring breaks you have to send the tank to get fixed caused when you do not properly take the tank off right) because they have a 2nd refill valve that can be used if while it is in your gun.


Overall I would rank the gun as:

Reliability: 10/10
For more experianced players: 4/10
Beginners: 9/10
Woodsball overall: 9.5/10
Speedball overall: 5/10 (lacks high BPS)
customability: 9/10
Air efficiancy: 6/10 overall but 9/10 for price
Overall: 7.5/10

Other suggested guns:other tippmanns,BT guns, Army guns, Smart parts (more for serious players, you will have to get them used since they closed) NEVER SPYDERS, a great way to check if it is a good gun brand is simply go on-line if every website has them(the ones i listed above)i may have missed one or 2.

Phrases that may confuse you: ACT-anti-chop technology get it, it keeps from you shooting your gun and the ball chops, or breaks in your gun. Response trigger- has multiple settings these are the guns that are non-electric that you would like extra settings then semi-auto. they will give you semi-auto 3 shot burst, rebound or ramping (shoot 5 bps, or balls per second and it goes to a higher bps (10-17) BPS-balls per second. Marker-same as gun. E-gun-electric gun.

E-trigger- same as Response trigger.

Pods/guppies-a plastic tube to hold extra paintballs.

Hope this was helpful to you and worth your time.

Good post

It's true that all the Tippmann guns are probably the most reliable on the market. Sure they aren't the best PB guns out there but if you want a good, solid, starting gun but don't care about performance too much, I would definitely go with Tippmann.

I agree

I also have a custom pro. I've never had a problem with it or any other tippmann brand markers. They never break down and never break paint. Good metal construction unlike spyders which tend to break very easily.
