Products Used:
Spyder Electra ( my only other electric marker ). If I had to compare the two, I would have to say that the only hand up the Electra has over the VS2 is that the Electra is a little bit lighter. How ever, the Electra is not even close to being as comfortable or durable as the VS2 (the Electra's plastic sided grip shattered after taking a direct hit ). The trgger systems on each are on two different planes. In short the VS2's trigger is ALOT better.
Marker Setup: I have 4:
Spyder Classic (oldest type):
-Wooden grip ( yes, real wood)
-14" custom barrel

Spyder TL:
-Rifled 14" barrel

Spyder Electra:
-Halo TSA hopper

( I did other minor things to the guns but they really aren't worth mentioning, how ever I will say that the Classic is the gun I can rely upon no matter what, even in pro matches )
You really don't need any but if you are picky about colors, get a body kit and barrel upgrade ( relativly cheap, about 50 bucks for the both of them )

If you REALLY get into it , get a Freak Barrel Kit.

Review: ***Strengths***
-Rate of fire
-Anti-chop ( works very well )
-Weight ( not too heavy, but it could loose some weight)
-Trigger setup (pretty sensitive, but not DANGEROUSLY sensitive , so it's all good. )
-Nice balance (if you hold it with your thumb in the upper corner of the trigger frame, index finger behind the neck, middle and ring after the neck, and pinky under the low pressure chamber, you can hardly even feel any weight difference...I hope you understand this is only when there is no hopper or Co2 tank, but even with a tank and Halo TSA hopper fully loaded, its pretty nicely balanced)
-The feeder neck fits nice and snug on most hoppers
-The on and off air tank regulator thingy ( not sure what it is called but it is really handy in taking off the tank and screwing on a full one )
-Easy to clean with the Delrin bolt ( AWSOME! )
-Pretty quiet
-Easy to take appart and clean/oil ( Very easy actually...)
-Comes with 9.6 rechargeable battery (if bought brand-new atleast... )

And most of all...looks sick...

There really aren't many flaws , if I had to be really nit-picky about it, the batter that it comes with can get really messed up if it charges for more than 8 hours so be carefull with that , and Spyder makes their batteries them selves so you NEED to get theirs for it to fit in the gun. But that really doesn't matter because all you need to do is plug the gun in ONE night when you go to bed, and when you wake up, unplug it...Dont charge it again until the battery dies! And as for the battery being only spyder, just make sure it comes with it when you buy it ( if brand new, it will come with it ).
Conclusion: It is a great gun, and a must have for Spyder fanatics. The price tag is very reasonable for what you get and it is legal in the paintball tournies unlike the VS3 (Dual trigger system's aren't allowed *cries* ). So yeah, buy it if you have the cash (which if you work part time and can save 50 bucks a week, you will get it in a month at the most... ) get it. Sweet gun....
