Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
2 years
Products Used:
tippman 98, and some old pumping ones.. lolz
Marker Setup: mr2/eyes, trinity clamping feed neck for eyes, MR twist 16" barrel, and a wrap around grip... everything else stock, i'm still currently using a reg hopper, still in process of upgrading...
the feedneck, the barrel, get the wrap around grip, a faster hopper for full auto mode, and a remote to tank to keep weight off.
Strengths: Accurate, love the 3 modes of semi, burst, and full auto.
Weaknesses: I'll explain in the review.
Review: This gun comes outta the box.. like every review says.. it looks great.. makes you drool.. yes it's alil heavy and loud when you handle and shoot with the gun.. but real guns are heavy and loud... lolz..

*weaknesses... i would say.. the original handle/grip sucks... like every other review says.. it exposes the circuit board and battery in the handle... this could be fixed by buying the rubber wrap-around grip to replace the orignal handle. (i guess it's a gimic for spyder to make more money by selling parts/accessories to make it better)

soo don't get it wet.. if you still have the original handles

**I also replaced the feedneck... the original plastic elbow adapter feels like it can snap off if i bang into a tree while i'm in play, but after i installed the new feedneck/elbow with clamp.. i kinda over tighten a screw and wore out the tread or "teeth" (i dunno the term for it) and that screw wont stay in anymore.. but the two other screws is holding it pretty tight.. soo i'm pretty statisfied and relieved
I wished spyder warned us about over-tightening screws.. (all they say in the manual is tighten screws because they might get loose during play from vibrations).. soo i tighten them as much as i can... big mistake i guess..

the gun is to be full maintenanced, after each day of playing.. we should lubicate the bolt instructed in the manual...

generally just keep it in top shape... try treating it as a baby when you are not playing and treat it like a monster when you are playing.. lolzz

I know alot of ppl say.. buy a better hopper or a E-hopper to force feed...

*** i personally think.. if you are playing in fields that only allow semi-auto only... then you dont really need a better hopper... a reg. $5.99 hopper is enough... to feed it 1 bps (paintball per second)...
Conclusion: I think this gun is good, not great, and it will get the job done... maintenance is a must... try not to get it wet... i would recommend it to beginners and i dunno about experts, because.. experts will definately say.. this gun is too heavy for speedball...

any other questions.. i'll glad to answer the best i can... if you think i said something wrong.. correct me... no one is always right...
9 out of 10
