Products Used:
spyder e99 / tl-r / tl-x - fun and easy all around

Marker Setup: upon using this marker, this was the setup for a short time:

Upgrades:
a 14" barrel, but stock barrel(11.5") is ok
just match the paint with any barrels u have, really.
altho stock is managable; new trigger and grips if your picky.
Strengths: Looks
Low cost
Very balanced with tank+hopper
Fast

Review: this might be alot to read, but its well worth it. discusses problems using this marker, as well as benefits.

got this bad boy a week ago. price-matched from a website for $135, originally $195. using this marker makes everyone freak out, apparently.

bps / ball breaks
to shoot fast, u need a fast hopper. my hopper does up to 14bps, gun does up to 20bps. apparently the feedneck has a gap where balls sometimes break if you dont adjust how the hopper sits.

trigger / eyes
wobbly trigger, but still manageable and easy to walk. very sensitive. the trigger frame had loose stock screws. no chops. just from feed neck gap, i think...

balance / accuracy
it was extremely balanced with hopper//tank, accurate with (diablo formula13?) to 14" SM AA barrel. basically match paint to the barrel. 14" tribal stix work well with stingers..

i do have to say, it is a good gun, but very high maintenance......
Conclusion: if this will be your first electronic marker, go for the SP ion over this one. if u play woodsball and in those bombed urban locations (broken brick builds, big dirt mounds, abandoned mills, etc...), u can probably have less aggravation using another marker. this marker has been a disappointment for me.
