Products Used:
my buddys pihrannah no idea what model though
Marker Setup: Marker-Spyder fenix ACS
Loader-viewloader quantum
barrel-16'' nightstick
Air-20 oz with remote coil
barrel 12" or higer, accuracy is a real issue with this puppy, also the fenix weighs like a bagillion pouns without a co2 tank on it so i reccomend a remote coil for maneuverability, definately if you plan on playing speed ball.
Strengths: She looks real perty, other than that its just your average 700 pound marker:) jk
Weaknesses: Anti chop system my @$$, this sucka chops more than a japanese sushi cook,
Review: No, seriously the fenix is the heaviest spyder ive ever held. and the thing chops like nutz, if you fire over like six bps. im trading her in for that new PMR, im waiting till it coms out in red, anywho as long as you dont walk too fast or stick to 3 rnd bursts you should be aight. accuracy is a huge issue with the fenix, stock barrel of course, i reccomend a spyder fitted 16" nightstick. then ya set. and dont waste expensive paint in this thing either, i reccommend monster or stryker, save you diablo and dynasty paint for a gun that wont sh*t out liquified paintballs. Im also gonna tell you that you might as well have a simple vl 200 or a quantam cause theres no point of feeding fast if you cant shoot fast. all around the fenix is alrigt im selling mine by the way after this review yur proboably not gonna want it but if ya got 300 bucks, email me at to give me an offer 200 is the lowest ill go but it comes with a 16" nightstick a 12oz tank, a stock barrel and a vl 200, ill throw in a bag of paint too, oh and a jt head shield. i got it souped up so its more accurate,its good as a semi sniper.
Conclusion: Good for a beginer,a 300 lb benching beginer, no the things friggen heavy! peace
6 out of 10

It weight 3 pounds 4 ounces. You don't need to be a body builder to lift this! Also it's slightly heavier than most because it has more custom milling made out of thicker metal. It also has a custom milled trigger guard which is very thick. I wouldnt be surprised if that added 2 ounce to it's weight. How fast are shooting. Oh sorry I looked at your settup 1# your using 1 vieloader QUANTUM that loader is rated at 8bps and the highest i've ever seen it feed was about 7. This gun is rated at 20bps man thats a 13-14 defrence. That defintly causes at least 70 percent of the chops. #2 your using c02 it's winter and cold outside c02 had spikes when its cold possibly putting too much strain on your balls. #3 what paint do you use? This last point has nothing to do with the gun but why in GODS name would you use a remote coil for speedball! in everyone on this planet that speeballs im gona give an estimate of 200000 most likely none of them use remotes. There for woodsball! Woodsball games are long and your gun gets heavy that why remote lines were invented. There seems to be alot wrong with this review.

Dude...Either you got a messed up Fenix (Which I Doubt) or Your just incorrect about everything. Id Go with everything DmzBoy Said.

1. Dont Expect Much Outta C02
2.The Fenix is Heavy But Get some strength you weakling.
3. Iv used 3 Diffrent ACS Bolts, None of all 3 had ever given me trouble.
4. Get a better Hopper, try a Ricochet, its better then ur POC Viewloader Quantum.
5. Woods ballers use Remotes, Not Speedballers.
6. Good luck for 300 Bucks, try 180.

preach brotha, preach lol no seriously this review was crap ur setup is all wrong fer this gun, a vl quantam? i can outshoot it with a mechanical gun and co2 is crap too

First - Good luck with the PMR - very sweet and light OMG but I don't have the money.

Second - The quantum sucks and CO2 is pretty bad unless anti-siphoned or on a remote line (I'm surprised that having it on a remote didn't help out though....) Once you get your PMR setup with a good loader and HPA, try them both on the Fenix before you give up on it. You might just keep it for a backup or at least not be so disappointed with it.
