Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
My other guns were a(n) JT Excelerator 5.0, a(n) Icon E, and I have also used a Spyder Shutter, Veiwloader Genesis, Tippman 98, and a Tippman a-5.
Marker Setup: Spyder MR3 (w/ Stock barrel)
Ricochet Rhino Hopper
Remote Coil
20oz. C02
NXe 4+1 Pod Pack (w/ Draxxus Pods and suspenders)
Recommended
Upgrades:
Personally, I couldn't say for sure but get a great electronic hopper that can do at least 15+ bps (which mine isn't, a 15+ bps). Also, it's a little heavier than your average paintball gun so having a remote coil for your C02 helps to reduce some extra weight. And maybe a better barrel.
Strengths: Stock barrel is accurate
Nice feel
Good feed neck system
T-bar system
The "eyes"
Weaknesses: Without stock, bolt is open
Heavier than an average paintball gun

Somewhat loud
drop/curve
Review: It's a great gun. It's made by Kingman (Spyder) which means it will be customizable. I think that it is a little heavier than an average paintball gun, but if you have a remote coil it helps. It will, in my opinion, be an okay gun for speed ball/air ball/hyper ball. But, if those are the main types of paintball you play then don't get it. It is a milsim marker so it's not exactly made for those types, but it still will work. I play most all types that why I bought it. It has great qualities like the anti-chop "eyes", the carrying handle/sight rail, easy-to-switch fireing modes (semi, semi w/ "eyes", full-auto), it has the new delrin spyder bolt, and it has an off-set feed neck. the bad things are that if you have the stock off the bolt is wide open, the grips are hard and somewhat open, and it's a little heavy. Overall, it's a great gun to buy. But, if your a starting player I wouldn't recommend it for you. It's a little complicated with it's new technologies, so if you're a noob it will be harder for you. If you want an overall good gun buy the MR3!!!!
Conclusion: I think this is a great gun. The price is a little spending, but it pays off. Though, it's heavier than an average paintball gun, I think it will still work for speed ball/air ball/hyper ball. I personally think that if you do a speed ball/air ball/hyperball game with it you should be back. Overall, I would say that this is a great but, but not for starters.
