Review: alright here we go.
i got this marker with a package (i wouldnt suggest you do that cause usually the package isn't what you want in the end and you spend more on buying the things you want anways)

i read all the review on here and on the website that i bought it from, it looked like a good deal from what i picked out. i got:
the marker, 20 oz co2, barrel sock, 2 masks, and podpack all for about $160 (give or take) anyways back to the review.
i got it in the mail and the first thing i did was took it out of the box and admired it, it looks alot better than the older spyders it has great annozdizing (spelling?) i got mine in matte black so it looks nice.
now to the pros and cons.

Pros: great begginer marker, easy to maintain, easy to learn how to use a paintball marker accuracy is alright with stock barrel, everything is mechanical which means you can take it apart and not have to worry about wires and electronic stuff, the package includes 1 marker, 1 barrel plug, 1 allen key, the plastic feedneck adapter. so basicly just add paint, air, a mask of course and a hopper and your ready to play with it. but first crono it as it shoots hot but ill get to that in a second. now this marker as i said before is a great started gun its semi auto, which means 1 pull of the trigger shoots out 1 paintball easy as that, cant get more basic than that, oh and it also has plenty of up grades for it.

Cons: slow rate of fire (ROF) its a semi-auto so one pull = one ball out of the barrel, its heavy, but not as heavy as a Tipman. the feedneck is just crap, i think i used it once and decided to get a clamping feedneck, which works a lot better.
its hot right out of the box which means it will shoot above the legal limit of 300 FPS. the barrel which is alright if you go like once a month or something. it is very loud, but then again its only i think 100 bucks. if you want to upgrade it you must buy spyder threaded barrels, which suck but its doable, but you can also turn this gun into a electronic marker with the spyder upgrade but i dont know if you want to do that cause its upgrade is almost as much as the marker its self haha. oh and one more thing the box doesn't come with any type of lube for the gun
Conclusion: all in all its a great little marker to get into the sport of paintball, its not the best but it will do for a little while.
however with that said i would just go and tell you to buy a electronic marker something simple like the smart parts vibe (nice little gun) or even if you have a little more money buy a Proto SLG, but the Spyder xtra is a great little gun will last you a long time, plus you have a great company to back you up (spyder) easy to maintain and clean.
im giving it a 10 because the only problem was the feedneck and thats just an easy fix .
10 out of 10
