Review: I have been very pleased with this hammer. The first thing I noticed, other than the weight was a marginal increase of about 10 FPS over polished stock internals while running at 250psi. I also noticed a slight reduction in the kick of the gun, although the kick of a paintball gun isn't that large to begin with.
Conclusion: Overall I believe this is a good product, but the question remains is it worth paying $40 for? For myself, it was as I run a LP setup, but for someone who isn't planning on using LP or is on a tight budget you are probably better off just polishing your internals and using the $40 on some other upgrade or paint.

If you have so much extra money to buy upgrades for your gun, you should consider either one of two things: The $65 T-Board (which makes any good spyder shoot 36 pbs, and it gives your spyder an eye) Or if you have a lot of money, and you want to make your marker the closest it's ever going to get to an intimmidtaer clone; buy, $200 "The One" upgrade. (It will make your gun shoot 30 pbs, and make your spyder a fully electro gun. The Creators of The One upgrade, put the setup on a spyder victor and had it shooting 20pbs by the end of the day)

Those are my two suggestions, and hgihly suggest you save up for one of them.

Well your suggestions are just that suggestions. I personally think the "One kit" is crap, I'm not paying $200 for stuff that I already have or have a close proximity to. Second, I don't really care if my gun caps out at 13bps or 30bps. I can't put the trigger that fast anyway, so again that's a waste of my money. If I want to spend $300 on upgrads I would be better off getting a BKO or a Cocker, as they are quality guns that fall into that general price range.

Well, a spyder can cycle 30 bps, so whether or not its a electo pneum doesn't matter.
