Products Used:
Hard to say.
Marker Setup: 1995 Spyder custom (back when I was airsmithing).
WGP trilogy tactical, JJ s2 10" barrel, 14" 32 degree whisper, CP Flame drop foward, Shocktech superfly bolt, Empire grips, Palmer reg (older), adjustable trigger, lighter back block, nexus valve and Palmer ram.
A longer barrel possible 12" to 14", and compressed air.
Strengths: Reliable marker, Comfortable grip and lightweight.
Weaknesses: The barrel, its accurate enough but not a tack driver.
Had problems with CO2.
Review: My overall opinion of this gun is good. I like the feel the looks and the wieght. The sound is a little loud, kinda reminds me of the old prolites. The marker was comfortable and handled well in the field, I had no problems moving around in the bunkers or around trees, vines and anything else out there. The rate of fire for me was to slow, this will not be a problem for the novice player, but for us with speed in mind and the trigger fingers to match will easily out perform this marker. A upgraded board would be needed for use in a tournament setting. This marker does not handle well of CO2, when the marker "freezes up" it will not even fire. This can be a problem if your being charged at the time it decides to do this. But for those who love CO2 it will do fine, I say this because we could not tell if the marker was on the CA seting or the CO2 setting (it helps when you test a marker if you have the instructions). We did not experience a chop in regular game play, so we made it chop a ball. We had ordered some spyder paint from 2 bags had broken paint in them and had begun to swell (the company said they would send new paint asap, if they don't I will update this so ya'll know where not to shop). The paint was shooting just fine though, I was reloading and a couple broke in the hopper and gravity took it to the bolt. So we finally got the result we were seeking, its accuarcy suffered greatly. At 10 yards you would be lucky to hit an elephant let alone a person. But keep in mind we gave it "bad" paint and it didn't chop it, I broke it loading it. So this marker is of very good design and quallity in my book.
Conclusion: Good marker, good price, very reliable, go with CA over CO2 and buy one for a backup or scenrio marker.
10 out of 10

I never have had a problem firing mine on co2, and i use a remote line , maybe you had the dwell setting to hpa, i dont know. Also i have noticed that when the battery starts die the gun will not fire properley, i first thought somthing was wrong with the reg until i put a fresh battery in and everything seems fine, I think a battery indicator led would have been a nice feature
