Review: Ooook. How should i start... Well ive played since 2004. Back then i had a Pilot, then a Ego05 (lol), then i stopped for a long time.

I then got a MR1, then like 2 moths after that, picked up a VS2. Ive loved it ever since. Its get great effeciency after some tuning with a spring kit (Which i reccomend getting. You can use the compact valve springs, but there are currently no aftermarket main springs) SO I'll start with the individual parts.

Barrel- It's eh. What do you expect from a stock spyder barrel? I mean really. If you cant get a Barrel kit, then i would reccomend a J&J Ceramic Barrel.

Eyes- They do thier job great. Nothing else to say. (but be careful when reassembling the marker not to pinch your eye wires)

Striker- Smaller, Allows for much reduced kick. And better air efficiency.

Valve- AMAZING improvment on the stock vavle my GOODNESS.

Trigger- Bit sloppy. Can be fixed useing some small washers. Or get a CP trigger. They have bearing to allow for a very smooth trigger pull, and almost no slop.

Board- Only 2 modes. Not that great. But it does the job. If your going to play any tourneys at ALL even local ones, i would reccomend getting a new board.

Frame/grips- Pretty comfortable, a little sloppy, they could have been better. There are no aftermarket grip that fit the vs2 (Hybrid did make grips that fit the vs...but now they dont make anything R.I.P!!)

Reg/asa- It works, i guess. I really dont like this. I would recomend changeing out the reg, and because you cange the reg, you must change the asa. Also, youll have to buy new fittings because the ones already on are metric.

Feedneck- the feedneck is alright. I would like a clamping. If your going to be diving at all, i would highly reccomend changing out to a low-rise clamping feedneck.
Conclusion: This is an overall great product. You can get them for fairly cheap now (-$150) Also, i would still reccomend getting the VS2 OVER the RSX if you were planning to get the RSX anytime soon. I say this because you can get A new VS2, a new reg, asa, fittings, board, and feedneck for the same or less than a RSX. On the RSX, most change out the feedneck and air through anyway.

I would deffinitelly reccomend this product as a back up, a beggining marker, or pretty much anyone. You wont be dissapointed.
