Recommended
Upgrades:
Doesn't really need any for what it is. If you want more, save up for a better marker.

Although, I do use a J&J Edge barrel kit with it when the Spyder is broken (which is most of the time) and that works quite well.
Strengths: Reliable
Low price
-(The complete package was $69 when I bought it.)
Lightweight
Weaknesses: Not much to grip on to on the front.
Review: When my son and I only had the 98C and the E99 (which chops and jams constantly), I wanted something inexpensive to keep around as a backup for the E99 and for friends without equipment to use, and the R6 package (which came a mask, hopper, and CO2 tank) has worked out very well.

The gun is very dependable. The only thing I've ever had to do other than oil it is replace the little rubber ball detent ($2 and 1 minute) about a year ago.
Lots and lots of different people of all ages have used this gun without complaint and all I ever do is put in a few drops of oil before each day of play (so, I like it).

The gun is very light which is good if you're spending all day at the park walking from field to field or in the woods.


Conclusion: Although the price for the package looks to be close to $100 now and has a 9oz tank (I think I got a 12oz), I still think the Player Pack is a great deal for the beginner on a budget or someone looking to keep an extra setup on hand for family and friends to use (after all, the more the merrier!).

If you only want to play speedball, you should probably save your money for something else. The R6 will work of course, but it is slow compared to a 'real' speedball marker.

I'm going to maxout the rating because I think 7.8 for what you get for the money is too low. Plus, I've been very happy with it's reliablity and the deal that I got.
