2 years
Products Used:
spyder imagine led 05
VL Triad
Marker Setup: spyder mr2
Thru Fligth ``16
20 oz tank with remote
halo TSA
JJ ceramic ``16
New barrel
Strengths: Great looking gun, Tougth
Weaknesses: Weak ball detent, hard to aim with the mask on
Review: I had a lot of problems, first to got mine mr2 because spyder was out of stock, when it arrived out of the box i love it, shoot nice and its very fast, so fast that my halo TSA didn`t feed even on 3 burst. I only had a chop on 3 burst ,but that wasn`t the problem. That nigth i connected it to charge and i noted a plastic burned smell in the grips, i thougth ``that's it, im done`` but i talked to a friend who buy the same day and had the same problem, and it was nothing bad.
Last saturday i went to a Field and there`s were the problems appear. When i was shooting fast on semi in the first round the marker chops bad, and put some paint in the hopper, that was a disaster and i lost 10 min. cleaning it and keep ed chopping all day long. A user of this page INTERCEPTOR88 advised me of this problems and he told me about the weak ball detent and he was rigth. Well io had to wait 3 weeks to get the intimidator BD and fix the problem.
Bad mistake from Kingman Spyder, because its a factory problem.

Update 03/05/06
I finally replace the BD, spyder send me one that made not any difference, so i had to buy an tymmy BD ( Bob Long),
now the chop stops, but i had lost 2 month.

Tube muchos problemas con mi mr2 el primer dia, si bien sabia que el Ball Detent era una falla de fabrica de la partida, jamas pense que me complicaria tanto la tarde. Ahora tengo que esperar 3 semanas para que lleguen los Intimidator BD /de bob long/ para poder darle un buen uso a la marcadora. Por lo demas pareceria ser muy fuerte ademas de extremadamente rapida, tanto, que se termina convirtiendo en un problema para conseguir un hopper que alimente mas de 20bps.
Bueno espero que le sea util a alguien esta recomendacion como lo fue para mi.

Update 03/05/06
Me llego la solucion al problema, al reemplazar el ball detent o ball stoper por los tymmy de bob long dejo de romper pellets dentro del bolt hacia el codo, lastima que la solucion tardo 2 meses.

Conclusion: I would recommend this gun if u know the risk of a factory defect, i think when i solve this problem i`ll be happy with spyder again. BUY A NEW BALL DETENT

I agree with everyone else here, you can see from my review I had the exact same problems, all the way to the burnt diode in the grip frame puffing out white smoke after only charging it for the second time. too much time and effort to get this particular gun to work properly, just too many headaches and down time. Sorry I don't want to be cleaning my barrel every 5 mins or recocking every-time it doesn't feed correctly. For some of you newer players, that may be ok, but allot of us, that down time and the time wasted fixing problems is the time the "other" player is getting the kill.

same here but i changed the bd like in two weeks,bought a fasta and it works like a charm. gordoconcon, to aim better with the mask on simply cut the superior part of the stock and your aim will improve
