Products Used:
Tippman A5, 98custom, X7 Spyder E99 evant Spyder Electra
Marker Setup: Spyder MR3 : Apex barrel, FASTA 18V hopper, Remot line, Co2, Red dot tactical sight.
Upgrade the barrel and make sure you have a hopper that can keep up with your fingers or the built in full auto.
Strengths: Very adjustable, durable, easy to clean,
Weaknesses: Gets loud using Co2, compresed air helps a lot. Little heavy.
Review: This is a very durable gun from my experience. I play woodsball in a very sandy enviornment and never had any problems with this gun, even jammed packed with sand from diving into bunkers this gun still fires with no breaks. Ive used a fair share of every mode on the gun semi eyes on/semi eyes off/ and even a lot of full auto in the heat of a fire fight to take a base, its never let me down. The way i tested this gun for satisfaction was i got a box of $28 low end paint, filled a 20ounce Co2 tank, rigged a tube with all 2000 paint balls to the top of my hopper, set it to full auto and held the triger till it wouldnt fire anymore or i ran out of Co2 or paint. The conclusion was it went throught the whole case of paint with no in barrel breaks and no missfires. A few broke in air and the spread on the target was about 4 feet (80% majority being with in a 13 inch spread) at a distance of 35 feet. (keep in mind this test was done with low end dimpeled paint) . The only disapointments with this gun are that it cant use a standered 9 volt batterie (some people say if you buy a good quality one it will work but ive had no such luck.) and its a little on the heavy side. The 9.6volt batterie it comes with lasts me about a day and a half in a senario event. About 3800 to 4600 shots deppending how much idle time you have the gun sit on durring the game. To solve this i just went and got a secound 9,6volt batterie for $10 and problem solved. This gun is more structured tord senario and woodsball, although it is perfectly capable of being a very effective speedball gun. Clean it after every game day and it will be there for you when you need it the most.
Conclusion: Its not perfect and their really isnt a gun that is but overall this has been the most reliable paintball gun i have ever owned. Sure its a little heavy but with a remote line you wont even care. You wont be disapointed with this gun.
9 out of 10
