Products Used:
Black spyder E-99(Exact same, except the Icon is a little better)
Eradicator (Not really comparable)
Customized 98-Custom(okay, better than a normal 98c)

Recommended
Upgrades:
Nothing really, besides shorten the trigger pull, and maybe a new barrel but the stock one works really good too.
Strengths: Rate of fire
light
Made of metal
3 round burst!
Tournament lock.
Weaknesses: The dip switches are kinda hard to get to when you're on the field.
Review: This gun shoots great, this is the second gun that I own and I love it. Not only does it look really cool, it fires really good too. I have mine on three round burst, and it rips pretty nice. I've used an E-99 which is almost the same thing, except for I found the Icon to be a little more accurate (when both were stock). I'm buying a 14" Quiet Riot barrel, which is going to make this gun even more awesome. If you're looking into buying a tournament -level gun that can stay up with the competition, and don't want to spend to much buy this gun. This gun pretty much has no weaknesses to it at all, besides the dip switches which is not that much of a big deal unless you're playing in a tournament. But for rec. play you don't have to worry about the rate of fire that you're shooting at. Trust me you won't regret it, it's only $119. Great gun for Rookies all the way up to Amateur players. Great gun, great price. I give this gun a 10 out of 10.
Conclusion: Buy it if you are wanting a gun that shoots more accurate and faster than most out there for under $200, if you buy it make sure you get an electronic hopper with it cuz you'll need it. This gun is definitely a ten out of ten.

i dont understand why you would want to shorten the trigger when a double trigger allows you to shoot faster by walking it with two fingers. thats why a double trigger is an upgrade rather than a downgrade.

They are talking about the actual length of the pull not the length of the trigger ( there is a bit of slack in the trigger before it makes contact). Your not supposed to be fiddlin with the dip switches on the field ( tourny consideration)...

Yes like BOBO said, you don't shorten the length of the trigger up and down, but you do shorten the pull between the trigger and the button that it touches. And no you're not suppose to mess with the dip switches during regular games, but you can during tournaments. That's why I posted that as a weakness, I thought that more people knew about these things.

hey to adjust it take the grip fram off and screw that screw on the inside part of the trigger up a bit you can adgust it so that it is already pressing on the button a little bit and walk it way faster than it can shoot on auto
