Review: You can't go wrong with the 2007 model Spyder Classic line. It is THE BEST entry level marker out there for several reasons: 1. They are nigh indestructable 2. They are highly upgradable 3. They are THE MOST EASILY maintained marker available (the quick strip bolt allows you to clean the bolt and upper tube without having to worry about springs and other parts going AWOL from the lower tube assembly). In fact, you could probably get away with cleaning it in-game if you needed to. My only concern with the marker is the new design does allow the potential for dirt to enter the lower tube of the marker from the top of the gun (since it it partially exposed). This isn't necessarily bad though, since you can now oil the striker without taking it out of the marker. Also, if you do take apart the lower tube... lining the striker up is a bit of a hassle when you reassemble it.
Conclusion: If you are worried about dirt you obviously play woodsball... a bright red marker (like this one) is probably a poor choice (might I suggest an MR1 instead... it's black and come with a stock). But if you are getting into speedball or paintball in general... buy one of the 07 Spyder classics, they are comfortable, upgradable, and easily maintained.
