Products Used:
tipmann 98c,a5,x7,jcs launcher,spyder pilot all fall short in comparison
Marker Setup: i only insist on the sp-1 now. 98c stock adaptor, carr stock, clamping feed neck, pinokio loader, virtue board, tech t upgrade bolt, c-series stiffi barrel with apex adaptor,apex head, custom paint job
techt bolt, virtue board
Strengths: Great price low pressure accurate!!!
Weaknesses: Eats alot of batteries with the stock board, but not with the virtue board
Review: i was having alot of trouble with my many tippmanns,and was brlieveing i was victim of a gypsy curse when i said to myself, its time to try somethingnew. i went to my local p b retailer intending to buy another spyder, but the dealer showed me the sp-1.i was very skeptical, knowing how idiosyncratic the ions can be but he let me take it out to the speedball court and give it a try.the first thing i noticed was how comfortable this marker is compared to my enormous x7.he showed me the different firing modes and i smirked while putting it on auto thinking, here goes theaccuracy. but holy moly,it stayed right on target!! he took an air tank off of a 98c that cycled down, put it on the little sp-1, and continued to shoot. never saw anything like that before!!!so needless to say i didnt walk out of there with a spyder, i bought the little sp-1.i have had no problems with it since i took it out of the box, i cant say that for my tippmannsi have since put a clamping feedneck on it, a halo loader(kinda heavy for it) a virtue board, and a tech t bolt upgrade in it,a tippmann stock, ar15 swat scope mount, and of course a red dot scope on it. im firing 20 bps and its a holy terror now. i spent over 1000 on my x-7, and it still doesnt even compare to the stock version of this marker! oh,did i mention that i am so HAPPY with this marker that i bought two more? UPDATE- I bought a Trinity fake supressor barrel for my sp-1 ( I even named it Maybeline!). This barrel does not have the best range, but it is extremely QUIET on the marker!! I usually will play a stealth game, but with this I can unload and people still can't tell where the sound is coming from!!!! One of my friends is upset that his automag longbow is no longer the quietest gun on the field!!!!
UPDATE: I have added a Pinokio loader since initially writing this review, which works SO much better with my high rate of fire due to capacity. Also, in front of the regulator, I have added a Metadyne Havoc launcher. While these two items make the sp-1 heavy, there's still nothing quite like my dreaded "Maybelline" at my local field. The havoc creates alot of confusion when combined with the sp-1, as the silenced barrel of the sp-1, and the loud boom of the havoc screw with those who hunt by using sound signatures. I guess my overall point is that the sp-1 is such a small gun for woodsball, that you can add onto it and it is still not cumbersome. It is only two inches longer with the launcher, so squeezing around corners is still a snap.
Conclusion: You are not going to find a better marker for this price! Add another 200 bucks and you have a high end tourney gun as well.It is quiet, accurate, and perfect for those tight places commonly found on the woodsball field. I doubt that you will find better even in a higher price this gun and you will not be disappointed!!! Add a better barrel, and a blackheart/virtue board, and get ready to sow some chaos!!!
