Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month16 of 19 people found this review helpful.

2 years
Products Used:
Model 98
Marker Setup: Spyder Fenix ACS
J&J ceramic-coming soon
Dye Sticky 3 grips- coming soon
Motorized Hopper- to keep up with the gun

New barrel- stock is horrible as are most, im getting a j & j ceramic to quiet it down but i here that the CP 1 piece is also a really good low priced barrel

Anti siphon co2 or better yet, N2- helps increase consistancy and preserve the seals

New grips- i recommend the Dye Sticky 3 Grips, I've heard good things about them and im getting them soon.
Strengths: ACS Bolt
Speed! Stock board up to 20 bps
Trigger- good for walking
Weaknesses: Loud-with stock barrel
It's a Blow Back
A little Heavy
Review: Strengths:
The ACS anti chop system bolt doesn't chop nearly as much as the old fenix bolt or most other bolts. It has a spring inside the bolt so if the bolt hits the ball the spring compresses and the ball doesn't break.

This gun is the fastest stock spyder on the market, the stock board is clocked at 20 bps. The trigger also makes this gun fast, you can adjust it in two spots and make it so the trigger pull is about a millimeter. The flat trigger is very good for walking.

This gun comes stock with a Regulator, it isn't a very good one but it is a regulator.

It looks pretty awesome.

It is really loud stock but a new barrel will fix it.

It's a blow-back.

This gun is pretty heavy because it is made entirely of metal, not the best for a frontman in speedball.
Conclusion: If your looking for an entry level marker that looks good and doesn't need to many upgrades then this is the marker for you.
Just get a new barrel and an electric hopper and you've got your self a great gun.
In my opinion it's one of the top 2 stock spyders.
10 out of 10

the best stock spyder, like # 1. Its the best spyder if all of the spyders were stock.

The J&J Ceramic Is a KICK Arse Barrel!! I have one for my cocker, and you can barely hear it... Reason Im not going to use it unless it fits paint is because I bought a Barrel Kit.. (7 Peice)

The Spyder Pilot and this marker(he fenix) are tied for first place in fastest Spyder marker. Both boards are capped at 20bps on semi.

I don't think a spyder being a blowback should be held against it. It's a spyder.

You think it's fast with that frame? Put a rocking trigger frame on this baby and you can fly.

all spyders are the same except the em1. now some have the acs, which sucks, and some are a fake electro and some mech, o and this board cant do 20 bps.

I got a fenix and i loaded up a co2 tank and i screwed it into the bottom and all of the co2 exploded out of the attaching cord. How can this be fixed?
