I have varying experience with the following markers:
Tippman 98 Custom -- Little Experience
Spyder Pilot -- Little Experience
Spyder Xtra -- Lots of Experience
An Unknown Piranah (Spelling?) that was pretty beat up -- little but too much experience...
Stock Spyder VS3
Kingman Fasta LCD Hopper
Barrel that fits...
Accuracy (even with stock!!!)
Easy to use
The only weakness I noticed was that it fits very, very, very few barrels...
The Spyder VS3 was my step up from the Spyder Xtra... So, naturally, I am overawed with this product. As i have a bit of knowledge of the Spyder Pilot and its performance i am incredibly impressed with he VS3. The best feature of the VS3 is that is is crazy fast on Semi-Auto allowing you as a player to pop off 1 shot or 25 shots with good accuracy in a short time frame, the firepower can be great intimidation and is great for suppression. My only recommendation would be that you use decent paint.... Shooting as fast as i could i broke a paintball (MONSTERBALL Brand) in my hopper's spinner the first time i shot my marker. The only vice to this marker is that ninety five percent (estimation) of the barrel mods out there will not fit this gun... I am not talking threads... They physically will not fit due to a horrible design error of a stylish front end of the hopper... I can only imagine how this marker would shoot with a good barrel...
I highly recommend this marker to anyone who wants a cheap but amazing low end (relatively) marker. BRAVO! BRAVO! Kingman, You SCORED!!!!
