Review: I'm an old timer (33) I am also new to the sport. The field I play at is mostly inhabited by Tippman lovers. I am one of 2 people who have chosen an E spyder. I can't say enough how satisfied I am with my MR3 as it is set up. Just yesterday I had a Tippman guy put his flatline barrel back on and consider the purchase of a body kit and e-grip for his A5 (after seeing my MR3). I spent a good deal of the day answering questions regarding my MR3! One A5 carrying fellow paint slinger made a comment on the issue of MR series spyders having chopping issues. Rather than go in to a long speech I simply fired off 400 balls on full auto to demonstrate that there is no issue!
Conclusion: In conclusion with the very narrow but proper setup the thing is a firehose!
9 out of 10

Thanks for getting one of the first real reviews here. I was wondering if you noticed any difference in performance between your MR3 and the MR2 you used. I use an MR2, as does another friend and the other uses MR1, we're all pretty curious about the new 3 which is about ~70 bucks more than ours, from where we get them.

The only real difference that I have noticed is the level of comfort. In addition it's very reliable. I have only broken 2 balls! That was before the ACS bolt was properly broken in. On my scenario team my role is Heavy machine gunner. So I shoot a lot of paint. I strongly recommend the set up I have. I promise you won't be sorry.

Thanks for the follow up, I have one more question but off topic: I was wondering how you feel about the apex barrel on your MR3. Right now I use a J&J 14 incher on my MR2 and was considering the Apex as a future upgrade. The one thing that gives me pause is the supposed reduced accuracy: obviously the long-distance shots are going to suffer, but how about at normal ranges, or when the flatline mode is disabled? Basically, do you think I should go for it?

Well I really can't compare, I have not used the "J & J " but what I can say is the Apex will definitely reach out and touch someone. Normal range shots comparable to Flatline. It still performs well at medium to short ranges. I prefer to keep it on flatline mode or what's called super flatline mode. Again if you buy it and you don't like it you can always sell it. I doubt you will though. Good luck and above all have fun.

the chopping issues are only in full auto with a crappy hopper because the eyes are turned off on full.
