Review: I bought this kit because I wanted to try to increase my bps without spending a bunch of money on an e-grip and hopper. This kit did everything I'd hopped, and more. The stiffer trigger spring means that it takes very little to trip it, and the lighter trigger spring means that it takes less effort to pull the trigger. With the addition of these 2 springs, pulling the trigger went from taking a concsious effort, to a hard thought. The 3 new main springs (1 lighter, 1 about the same, and 1 heavier then stock) help adjust velocity more then the stock spring does, which is nice, though not essental, and the lighter valve spring means that it doesn't take as much force to open it (which is nice, since it takes a little more Co2 to push back the stiffer springs, though not enough to be noticeable).

As I said before, I mainly bought this kit in an effort to increase my bps without spending a lot of money. It did this beutifully. This kit turned my Spyder Rodeo into an entirely new gun. It shoots just as rapidly, maybe even more so, then my friend's Tippmann A-5. I can't quite double finger it yet, but I almost can, and with practice, I think I will. I put the stiffest of the main springs in, which helped conciderably with velocity (in fact, I think I'm gonna have to put one of the lighter springs in to get my velocity down to a resonable level).

Now for the draw backs. The most noticbly draw back is the kick. With the stiffest spring in it, it kicks bad enough that if you're not holding the gun tightly, it'll throw your aim off. Also, the sear spring is EXTREMELY hard to replace, as the one in this kit is about 3/8 of an inch shorter then the stock one. I had to use a peice of light fishing line to pull the spring back far enough to hook it over the pin it attaches to, then melt the line with a match.
Conclusion: Dispite the few draw backs to this product, this is perhaps the most cost-effective upgrade you can make to your gun. Buy this before you go out and spend a bunch of money on almost any other upgrade. Due to the difficulty I had in installing the sear spring, and the few other minor problems, I gave it an 9.
9 out of 10
