Review: I got my VS2 today and I hooked on my 72/3000 and dry fired it a bit. I noticed leaking from the macroline and I wiggled the tube a bit and it stopped for a bit. If you can get stainless steel because once you put it on you don't have to mess with it again. Although it doesn't look as good as macroline it performs better for the gun. Anyways, It kept decocking and I looked at my guage and it was at about 80 and I kept turning it up and it wouldn't change. I then took the air out of my gun and it still was at 80. I went to my boss and he told me the guage was broken. I will still shoot fine, but it won't read how much air is being put into the gun. The feedneck doesn't fit the Halo's and Egg's very well at all, but once I find out what threadings it is I will let yall know. This gun is very quick on semi though. I adjusted the trigger how I liked it and it shot ropes. The price for this is great being $190 for the Scythe trigger which is cheaper and better than the Ion. The quality is great too cuz Spyders will last you a life time and this is just a great gun. The eyes are pretty good. I didn't chop too much other than when they were double feeding and breakin in the breach. The stock barrel isn't that great, but alot better than the other spyder stock barrels I've shot. The detents on this gun suck. They are too soft and even an Egg was double feeding on this gun. They should be coming out with harder detents later on though. You can also buy body kits for this gun making it your own.
Conclusion: I would definitly recommend this gun to anyone thinking of buying a ion/wrath. This is a great beginner to tournament gun with the right setup. There are some problems with mine but they will be fixed and I will edit this. Until then I give it a 7.

sounds like hes judging it based off his guns recocking issues more than bad detents, besides, it may be a good thing if he makes a note on his bad detents, espescially if it becomes a widespread problem like the 1st generation detens on the MR series

Im with you, if it has a problem i want to know. I got blasted for giving it a bad review when mine did not work out of the box. Thank you for not sugar coating it like all the cry babies out there.

Judging by bakerskater124's sig, he's moved on to another gun but for the sake of others, the threads on the feedneck are the same as an Ion. The stock feedneck fit my unsanded Halo feedneck just fine. You just need to make sure that the locking ring inside is not compressed when you first insert.

ya, the feedneck will fit anything if you adjust it right. first, unscrew it all the way, second, make sure the inner lock thingy is set in there loosely, third, start screwing it in(not very far), fourth, put your hopper in, fifth, titen till you can't, sixth, get some pliers and titen it one more turn. you won't beable to pull that hopper out of the feedneck for anything.

If you are wanting better detents, a small local company in Phoenix sells upgrade ball detents. The name is Hazmat Paintball. It comes with two small springs and two metal ball detents. I have them in my Spyder VS2 and it work like a dream. It only cost 13$ and it's a much better investment in your gun and is much better than replacing those rubber detents. Their email is hazmatpb@yahoo.com
