Paintball
Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
Talon(horrible still), Spyder Sport(IT'S HELL ON EARTH WITH THIS GUN!), Spyder TL( not TL Plus)-works only half decent, my brother's Tippman Model 98(old style)- it works great, my Tippman Pro/Carbine- I'm happy with this gun alone-even though it has no upgrades.
Marker Setup: Tippman PRO/CARBINE w/ stock barrel still( I need to save money and wait for a decent barrel), JAVA 20 oz CO2 tank, and JAVA hopper. I want to find a butt plate that will fit my tank. No aftermarket upgrades. Will get new barrel soon!
Recommended
Upgrades:
NONE! THIS WON'T TAKE ANY!
Strengths: My first paintball gun ever. Gives me priceless memories(sarcastic)

Very few "pros":

Cheap($20),

found lots of places(like Walmart),

and for beginners. Great for those who want to experiment with paintball like kids, older people, entire families, and the most popular- weekend warriors(mostly people w/ white collar jobs).

They do make some hilarious stories for paintballers with better guns and newbies(you'll see later in my review).

not too much else...

...I had to think hard for the pros in this gun.
Weaknesses: When I used it for the first time too many bad incidents happened. A LONG LIST of the "cons" of this gun:

-Plastic body-it'll crack in 2 if your not careful. After a while we threw away many cracked and broken blades.
-brakes balls. Even when you shoot slow. It's crazy! Unpredictable!
-balls can get stuck while you pump it.
-only takes 12 grams. You'll maybe get 20 or so shots in there.
-leaks CO2 in the ASA adapter.
-inconsistent velocity. It would shoot normal once but sometimes it would have a ball pop a few feet in front of you-on a fresh CO2 cartridge!
-bad range in this gun,in my first game I couldn't get a guy from up a hill or even down a hill! It falls short of your target all the time. We couldn't get each other! IT WAS FUNNY!
-no sight! You can't aim- the feed port blocks the way.
-the bad hopper-my first game the yellow cap got lost in the woods. I wasn't alone other guys did too!
-the paint where it says "Blade" on it scratches off easy.
-for those who know what an auto trigger is, it doesn't work. It pops a ball a couple feet and you see it roll away!
-It looks so FUNNY. LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF THE SCI-FI CHANNEL. I TAKE 1 LOOK @ IT AND I START MAKING FUN OF THE GUYS ON STAR TREK.


Conclusion: We chip in money, go to Walmart, have an adult buy some Blades, masks, 12 grams, and paintballs, put on a bunch of t-shirts, go to the woods @ night and have some fun. We come back dirty, w/ welts, paint in our barrels, and cracked guns.It's no good. Start off with a decent semi. What better place to find out the quality of a gun than here @ pbreview.com. Thanks alot pbreview!
