Period of
Product Use:
3 months
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Various spyders
Jt Excellerators
Marker Setup: Automag RT with Flatline Reg
Barrel kit for improved accuracy (stock barrel is nice however)
Spyder e-grip for higher fire rate (will fit, some with a bit of modifying.)
Strengths: Very well built, easy to field strip, easy to get hardware for
Weaknesses: Lack of optional mods due to not being made anymore
Review: I've been collecting some of these for a while now, and I am impressed with the quality. It functions just like a spyder, however the aluminum is machined much better and the stock parts are nearly bulletproof. The hardware can be easily found at a local store that sells machine screws, and the o-rings are mostly compatible with spyders.

I enjoy this marker, because it's built right and I'm never worried about anything breaking. I can take a spill on the field and know that my marker will keep working. It's all mechanical, so it's not fast by any means. It makes up for it with decent air consuption, durability and reliability. I've gotten one in a trade that was sitting for years in someones garage, it turned out like new after I took it apart and just cleaned it.

You can add a spyder grip to the marker, some without modifying the grip. That is if you want a faster marker, but there are better choices if you really want speed. I like this marker for what it is, and I use it on occasion when playing rec ball with friends in the woods.
Conclusion: Great marker, built right for what it is. I would take this over a spyder anyday, even if it is a clone. If you look around, you can also get some stock replacement parts from one of the makers of the marker. He'd be happy to help!

10 because it's the best for what type of marker it was built to be.
