Period of
Product Use:
1 year
1 year
Products Used:
Spyder Xtra
Marker Setup: Spyder Xtra w/ 20 oz CO2, I use both the stock barrel & a 20" Stonecold II by Taso
New grip, maybe a barrel (not a must but helpful), all aluminum parts wood be better.
Strengths: Price, looks, weights not bad, accurate w/ the right paint, short trigger pull.
Weaknesses: Paintball picky, plastic parts, not field strippable
Review: I bought this gun as a backup & so I could take friends with me if they were new to the game. I bought it in a package for about $100 with mask, goggle, co2, & ball hauler. This was a great price considering the gear & it has an x-chamber & drop forward. I was disappointed that it has a plastic body, I have not had any troubles with it after 1 year of use. The grip is hard plastic, but can be delt w/ if you have good gloves. Now this gun is VERY paint picky. If you use PMI balls they are too large & you will bust some. If you use Diablo paint it seems to be a perfect barrel match & then it shoots very accurate without chopping. This gun can be upgraded, but it has a weird thread on the barrel. I contacted Zap directly & they told me that J&J could make a barrel for it. This can be a bit pricey. This has a very short trigger pull for fast shooting. This could be a very good gun w/ enough up grades or leave it stock for a good entry level gun.
Conclusion: This is a good value. it is not a top of the line gun but is a good entry level marker. It took some trying to find out what to shoot through it, which is why most people probably don't favor it. If you use Diablo or similar paint it will shoot very good. It could be better but what do you want when the whole kit cost $100. I give it the 7 of 10 do to its quirks as listed above & no lower because it has been reliable. The most important thing about this gun as with all of them, oil it before you play the first time, there is only enough lube in it for shipping.
7 out of 10
