Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month95 of 111 people found this review helpful.

1 year
Products Used:
Spyder E99 Avant, Spyder Imagine
Marker Setup: Spyder Pilot Running 4500/68psi compressed air.
Stiffi barrel
Evo hopper
Barrel, compressed air.
Strengths: Light, fast shooter, good looking, pretty accurate, easily upgraded, easily repaired. Probably very durable!
Weaknesses: Barrel.
Review: I have not used it that much yet because I just bought it. The reason I bought this is that the A5 is great for woodsball, however, I wanted a faster firing, more nimble marker, that had some of the same qualities ( low or no chops, durable, easily maintained) that the A5 has, for playing speed ball. So far this thing really rocks. I have only fired about 3000 rounds through it, however, they were as fast as I could shoot. NO CHOPS! Not bad. Accuracy was not bad even with the stock barrel. It did lack the distance that a flatline provides but was no where near as picky with regard to paint. So far I really like it, and would have to say, it is well worth the money. I still can't get over the fact that I shot as much, and as fast as I did, with no chops. ACS must really work.
Addendum 1/12/05. About another 6000 shots through it and it just does not chop.....Maybe a total of 4 in the 6000 I shot. About 3 of those were when I somehow forgot to turn my hopper on and out shot gravity........Really impressed with this thing. Have not used the A5 since I got this. Even for Woodsball
Conclusion: Buy this Gun! It is very reasonably priced and really performs! I will update this after I use it a little more but so far this performs very similarly to my son's E99 Avant and that gun has been very durable.

I just got mine in the mail. I want to know what paint you were using because I chop alot of balls. I've got a evolution ll loader also. Is there something wrong with my bolt?

you sure you got the ACS...and with the evo2 hopper you can adjust how fast it feeds...make sure its not turned down.

You talked about as much about your old A-5 as you did about the Pilot ACS.

ilikebunkers: Maybe something wrong with your bolt I used all kinds of paint.......That is one of the things I liked about this gun.....Not very choosy when it comes to paint. Spencer has a good suggestion, when I did chop it was because I forgot to turn my hopper on. It will chop if you gravity feed and shoot fast.

Crazy Nut: You crazy nut, read the report, all I do is compare it to the A5. That's what people want to read about in these reports, "comparisons and opinions". if you don't like it don't read it!

how many shots does your 4500/68psi tank hold?
