Review: Ok. I was wondering what a good, not too expensive, electric marker would be for me. So i came hear to and found my answer. The Spyder Pilot. This is a great marker for a great price. I got mine for $170.

*Weakness's: The pilot has very few weakness's. One of the main weakness's is the trigger. It isn't that short for an electric marker and it is plastic. What I plan on doing is getting a sweetspot trigger. If you don't mind the fact that it's plastic and you are creative you can try gluing a washer or 2 to the back of the trigger. That will shorten the pull. But it's alot shorter than my triton. (Boy that thing was hell.)Another weakness is the feed neck. I recommend getting a lapco clamping fed neck. looks good too. And of course the barrel sucks.

*Strengths: About everything on hte pilot is a key strength. (it's like every part has it's purpose and works great together.) The pilot is a fast marker. About as fast as a shocker. You can buy an ACS(anti-chop system) for $30 which puts the pilot up to
20 bps.
Conclusion: Get this. Or the spyder fenix if u want a different look.
10 out of 10

yah but it's still not short enough. i can shoot 14bps w/ it but i'm going to get a ACS for it so it will go up to 20bps. Therefore i need a new trigger

The acs bolt allows you to shoot 20 bps? I thought you had to have a faster trigger frame to accomplish that.

A acs bolt won't make you shoot faster. You will need a new board since the stock is capped at 13-14.

why are you using Co2?

Actually the spyder pilot can't shoot as fast as the shocker, unless you got a new board.

pilot = 13 -14 BPS
Shocker = 22+ BPS

The pilot has nothing on a shocker. The shocker will shot 25 easy and is capable of higher rates of fire with a new board. Plus it has eyes so you don't chop and I heard the ACS doesn't work that well. The shockers trigger, barrel, and board are great and trigger is very adjustable. You can not compare a spyder to a shocker at all.

first of all, the pilot comes stock at 20 bps, and i got mine from second of all, what does it matter, tournment leagle is only 15 balls per second anyways.... and the bolt has nothing to do with the fire rate, especailly on a spyder-clone marker (or spyder in this case) the double tube idea is the fastest shooting physics as far as paintball guns go. Mainly since its high preasure. and yes, dont use C02 with the gun, i know air is expensive at first, but it will save you a lot. c02 will ruin the braided steel line and the temperatures that it creats might damage your electronics. oh, and get an electrnic hopper, please!

I got a rocking trigger for my pilot and i can above 20 bps no problem and i can shoot faster than my evo2 with y-board so easily so if you really want to shoot faster either get a rocking trigger or.... you can get the new spyder vs2 or vs3 those are pretty sick.

actually the old one (the blue ones) are capped at 14 semi, you must be thinking of the new ones that have black to red or blue fade, those come with acs stock and are capped at 20, but the old ones are 14
