Period of
Product Use:

6 months
Products Used:
Spyder e-99 avant, tippmann a-5, some other crappy spyder gun, commando 2
Marker Setup: Custom pro with default 11 in. barrel and drop forward plus boomstick and empire 2 reloader on the way
Get a barrel! I accused my friend of cheating and turning his pressure up a hundred times until i tried his barrel and was like, oops...just need a barrel.
Strengths: Tough outsides-hard to scratch
Easy to take apart
Weaknesses: Breaks balls until you get an electronic hopper unlike a-5
Review: Well I've had my baby for 3 months and it still rocks! I love this gun because i can forget to clean it and open this puppy up 2 wks later and it cleans up to brand new condition. The 11 inch barrel that comes with it is nice and drop forward is a nifty starting feature. It runs great on CO2---i would never waste the money to go nitro unless i had a LOT of cash.
However, I shoot paintballs (xball gold) that are 60 bucks a case and i still break balls! I have tried many different and xball is the best...only one break a case on average while others were doing 2 or 3 breaks a case. This can be fixed by getting an electronic hopper (my friend had the problem and now he never breaks balls since he got his halo).
Conclusion: This gun is great, but until you buy an electronic hopper to stop ball breaks (or at least minimize them) and get a longer barrel, it insn't able to keep up with mid-range guns.
However, if you just want it for woods ball every other week, its great. I'll round this up to a...
9 out of 10

If you really want the breaks to stop then you should get the new cyclone feeder upgrade, i've shot about 25,000 balls with no breaks and they were stryker balls, about 40 bucks a case.( But even before I got the cyclone I wasn't breaking)
