Period of
Product Use:
3 months
More than 5 years
Products Used:
Angel LCD, stock spyder with wicked trigger job
Marker Setup: Spyder 2000, Low pressure mods, palmer stab reg set at 335psi, 12" cp barrel, 12v revy xboard, lapco drop forward, 16oz anti-siphon co2, mako storm electro frame
Strengths: Bolt this grip onto a spyder that's capable of handling the rate of fire and you have a marker that can shoot as fast as any marker available. I keep it set at 12bps with NO chops with my 12v xboard revy. Virtually eliminates ball chops because it allows you to limit the ROF. The grip is built from machined metal instead of cheap cast metal like the stock frame. Looks stylish and feels very solid. Electro grips give you the ROF advantage of a true electro but without the complications of a fully electronic valve system--if it goes down you can always attach a mechanical frame and your back in business.
Weaknesses: Quite frankly, this grip frame won't work as designed on a stock spyder with co2. If you were to even try to take advantage of the ROF available your marker would either freeze up, shootdown horribly, or sputter and "blend paint." You need HPA, or co2 that's regulated down to 450psi. Make sure your low pressure setup is free flowing as well, kingman regs or micro lines will cause nothing but problems. The only mode that you can count on using is semi-auto, cuz most fields ban the other moes. However the VERY short trigger pull coupled with the vibration from firing creates a reactive trigger effect that allows you to shoot as fast as you'd like in semi mode. If you are using a high operating pressure or a stiff main spring be prepared for a lot of kick, my marker uses light springs and runs at a low pressure so the kick isn't much, simular to that of an Angel LCD but not near as smooth as an impulse or shocker. It's not waterproof and I would not use it in wet conditions. I've never heard or seen a mako frame where the battery level meter actually worked.
Conclusion: A great upgrade if you have a spyder that's capable of taking advantage of the ROF. I highly reccomend low pressure mods to be used in conjunction because running at normal operating pressures is quite jolting and will likely hurt the lifetime of the spyder and the frame.
