Products Used:
Tippman 98 Custom
Marker Setup: Nothing new, but I'm getting my 20" barrel shipped right now, when I get a chance to test it, I'll post an update/
New Barrel, Turn the power up (mine came out of the box at 100 fps), maybe a new stock, and you will almost certinaly want a better sight.
Strengths: Looks good, acuracte, feels good, stock out of the box, never chops, Original look.
Weaknesses: Distance, Power, Screw come undone to easily.
Review: I love this gun. I have been using around twice a month and normally put about a thousand rounds throught it every day I play and I have never had one break even though I use the cheapest paint available. It has a stock right out of the box which I think is awesome, because I haven't seen any other guns there aren't some sort of special package. It's one of the cheapest non-off brand guns on the market.
The Spyder MR1 is widely known as the Tippman 98 Customs biggest competetor. Well, I've used both and I can tell you that the MR1 is not on the same level as the Tippman 98 Custom, it is on a much higher level. The Tippman has a very crappy barrel out of the box, no stock, and is used by EVERYONE... Not to mention it just doesn't shoot as well. The only place the 98 Custom beats the MR1 is distance.
Conclusion: The MR1 is a great woodsball or speedball gun. It looks awesome, shoots awesome and cleans easily. But I do have to take a point off for distance and the screws coming undone to easily. But still gets a really good review from me.
9 out of 10
