Paintball
Experience:
4 years
Marker Setup: Spyder Shutter with Mako LCD, PTP Warp Feed, 12V revvy w/ x-board, PMI reg, 68 cu in PMI nitro, WDP drop forward, smart parts stainless 12 in barell
Strengths: This badboy made my first gun ever, a spyder shutter, go from a rental-caliber gun to a full-on electric gun. i decided to invest all my money into this spyder rather than buy an impulse (or any other e marker) because of the wonderful results i got from the boo yaa. i was shooting better than any of my friends with this set-up, and then i got a warp feed for it which i also highly recommend. the shutter can support about 14 rps, although i tune it down to 12 or 13 to let the gun recharge. either way...12-13 rounds with a 150 dollar gun!! i also recommend using turbo mode (fields will not let you use full-auto for safety reasons). the turbo mode is just like an RT trigger you would find in an automag or a tippman, however, its electric and you can set parameters to how you want the gun to shoot.
Weaknesses: IT AINT WATERPROOF!!!!! meaning that it cuts my playing time down to only happy sunny days....but what if i enjoy playing in the rain, or what if i have to wade through a river (as ive had to do before)? i havent found any sorts of grip frames to buy for it, i suppose i can mod my sticky grips. (siigh)
also, i put in a fresh 9V battery, and the darn thing last about 1500 rounds. i dont want the thing dying on me in the middle of a fire-fight (and no i will not carry on an extra one, because either way i have to unscrew the frame to install the battery..and its impossible to do all this and not get shot).
mine did not come with a rechargable battery, or a charger....but im not fretting about it.........o well, very few setbacks with this frame.
Conclusion: overall, the most worthwhile upgrade you can make for your spyder. ive seen them on automags too, and i dont forsee any complications should you choose to use a boo yaa (or mako) for that. it will make your gun shoot fast, even if you want to use a semi-auto trigger your trigger pull will be very VERY small because you are essentially pushing a small button....its fractions of a cm, almost too sensitive.
the only major drawback is that it is not waterproof, and you must remember that subjecting your gun to heavier use than stock (youre firing 13 rps instead of 5), it adds up over time and you will wear down your parts quicker, so stock up on parts kits, just in case. GET IT if youre thinking about and you have the money. an electronic hopper is an absolute must (x-board highly rec.), and the warp feed, well...its just so i can say that im the only one crazy enough to put a warp feed on a spyder. heh

I have a Bob Long Millenium (basically a spyder clone) and i got this for it. I've got the same problems as you...I love playing in the rain. But with my egg2 hopper and elcd trigger it just doesn't happen. Damn lack of grips....grrrr. I'm about to make my own. Turbo is the best mode and i'm thinking about a warp feed. My friends are already jealous about my pimped out gun. But i did invest in 3, count em, 3 rechargable batteries and a charger. I always have plenty. It's worth is to invest now for unlimited batteries. Paintball is da best, wish i was good enough to live off of it.

the shutter can support about 14 rps- warpfeedspyder

Actually a stock spyder can last with rates up to around 46rps.

a 32 degrees eframe fits spyders, shoots the same speed, and has reactive mode, one shot every pull, one shot every release, and u can pull the trigger about 12 rps in semi mode which makes it 24 rps in reactive. also has 3 shot burst and full auto, and is only 80 dollars
