6 months
Products Used:
TL-R and older Xtra's.
Marker Setup: Spyder Xtra - stock except icon e-trigger.
Nothing mandatory
Strengths: Easily upgradable, stylish, shoots well right out of the box.
Weaknesses: Off-set screw holes for trigger upgrades, nothing else.
Review: I'm no pb guru so I wanted a marker that would fit my budget. After reviewing other markers, I came to the conclusion a Spyder Xtra or TL-R would suffice. I wasn't fond of the long trigger pull so I was convinced to upgrade the entire trigger assembly, which has worked very well. The trigger is ICON, it does have fully automatic capabilities, however, this stock marker is not prepped for such a feature as it will break balls.

The velocity adjuster is conviently located in the rear and does not require an allen key like some markers, a simple turn of the knob and you're set. This particular model has the curved body and bright blue aluminum shine. The tail on the top of the marker is useless and probably only useful to protect your body.

The marker shoots very well, this of course always depends on what type of paint you're using. I've used a variety of paint and quite honestly Whack paint shoots well out of this marker. I've used diablo heat during warmer weather and that works well too. Whack doesn't cover well but the balls are half decent for the price.

This marker disassembles easily, it does come with a parts list and shows you how the marker is assembled, a nice addition for us new guys.
Conclusion: Recommended for new folks to the game, a down right reliable marker.
10 out of 10

This is not a reliable gun at all. The review doesnt show anything about the Xtra at all. You're a noob. this gun deserves a 7

Obviously I'm a "noob", I don't contest to that statement. The Xtra model I use on the field is reliable for me and my shooting abilities. This is exactly what a review is meant to be, my experience with the Xtra. So, you have all the right to rate it a 7 based on your experience with it, just in my opinion I believe it deserves a 10.
