Paintball
Experience:
4 years
Similar
Products Used:
Ion
Marker Setup: Spyder Electra 06 with eyes, 16in. all american barrel, Halo w/ Victory board, PMI 68/4500 HPA
Recommended
Upgrades:
Fast Hopper (halo), barrel (although the stock barrel isn't too bad) that's about it.
Strengths: Rocking trigger is awsome, eyes, fast as hell!!!, good reg., and it looks cool.
Weaknesses: None so far.
Review: This is the 3rd gun that I have owned so far in my 4 and a half years of paintball, and this gun is undoubtedly the best so far. The rocking trigger is incredibly fast and can be adjusted in many ways. It is advertised as 30bps, but on semi auto I got it up to 17bps. Do I think that this gun can reach 30bps STOCK? No. but with some upgrades, you might be able to get around 25, but definitely not 30. In my opinion, no one on this planet can shoot 30bps. Who really needs to shoot that fast anyways? I give this gun a 9.5 because nothing is perfect.
Conclusion: I think that it is rediculous that this is in the "low-end electronic markers" catagory. I think that the 06 Electra is in my opinion a high end gun. Finally, Spyder comes out with an incredible paintball marker. Now I know that there are a lot of Spyder haters out there but the only reason they bash them constantly is because they are AFFORDABLE, durable, and unique. That doesn't sound so bad to me.

May be this marker is considered low-end because it's a sear-tripper. No idea what else is considered to put as low-end, because honestly, the price doesn't speak of an entry-level type of marker hehe.

Autocockers and Automags are also sear trippers.

its becuz of the type of operating system it uses, like most higher end guns use RAM operating with a closed bolt, this is a blowback open bolt

That doesnt make it any less of a marker at all, however.

What I am trying to figure out is why the ION and Autococker TRILOGIES are in the high end category, and Electras are in the Low end category. It makes no sense!!!!!!

the ion and autococker are put above because of company, smartparts sells 250-1000 dollar guns, and autococker are up in price too, but the kingman is a high quality low price gun, but i am wondering also why this ONE gun cant be up, it is amazing! I am gonna get it soon, or maybe win it in a contest hehe

I thought most guns, other than autocockers are openbolt, I'm almost positive.

The spyder electra is a really great gun. I own one at the moment. The accuracy is amazing if you use my trick. There is a little black screw right under the clamp of the hopper. Eye that where you want to aim and it hits right on.

And I was wondering if there is anyway to fix and over sensitive rocking trigger...
