Review: Here are all the key points that are required in every gun.......

For all of you snipers or whatever who like to be ball on ball, I would get an upgraded barrel prefferably a 14" two-piece. I have an all-american and it works like a beast! It blows the "accurate" Tippman out of the water! preffered upgrade.

Tadoa is really one of the best board makers in the buissness, and i was really surprised at the quality that spyder put into the RSX.
It has 5 modes of fire-
-Semi auto
-3 shot burst.
It also has a "debounce" menu. Debounce is when you are actually firing more balls than how many times the trigger is being pulled.

Honestly, I have to say I was dissapointed with the feedneck this gun has. I thought Spyder had it all right this time, until I saw this. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET A NEW FEEDNECK! My jr. litteraly fell off of it when I tipped my gun to the side.

OK, maybe its just mine, but the power buttons were a pain to turn on the first couple of days i had it. I litteraly had to take an allen key and turn the gun on that way! Afer a few days of breaking them in though, you should be fine.

The bolt is starting to scratch up the inside of my breach, and I have to lube this thing up every time after a day of play. I think this is the reason why the gun has kick. It's optional, but Im getting a new bolt.~~~~~~EDIT~~~~~DONT LUBE THE BOLT MY MISTAKE IT CAUSES THE THING TO SWELL THUS DAMAGIING YOUR MARKER EVEN MORE!!!~~~~~~

They are working like a wonder, not a single chop yet! Im very happy with the eyes.

Be prepared to buy a lot of these, because the RSX will shoot them out fairly quickly. They are not screw in you just place them into these holes. They still work fine, though.

Im kinda puny, but still its not that heavy. By the way i see things, It is the lightest Spyder out there. Not a problem at all.

It's ok...... I find it really hard to get on to but still it is very light and adjustible up to 3 points. The max I can fire on semi is 15.


These are all of the highlights of the gun.
Conclusion: Spyder did an amazing job in producing this gun! It is by far the best Spyder out there and is definatly worth the 270 bucks I payed for it! A solid nine due to the feedneck and slightly to the bolt, and nothing is perfect. but I was blown away with accuracy, consistency, and speed! I would preferre it to any level player out there who wants a decent gun.
