Marker Setup: spyder imagine, 14" tear drop, ak ricochet hopper, 32 degrees universal drop forward,48/3000psi HPA Tank, check it products slip on feed, check it products assult block,sweet spot trigger, shock tech super fly bolt, macro line set up
Recommended
Upgrades:
New barrel( **this is needed badly**) The barrel that comes with it is a 9.5 inch barrel that just doesn't shoot far enough for me in speed ball, I found without an elec hopper i would not chop balls, but jam one every once and a while( not really a problem, just recock the bolt) But you should have an elec. hopper.
Strengths: Fast, fullauto is sweet, the gun is electronic




Weaknesses: Barrel, and offset frame
Review: This gun is great. It is electric which has a fast semi response, 3 round, and full auto (high and low) The gun is nice looking, durable and light. Down falls - short barrel, offset type trigger frame, and the grip should be more water proof. But all in all, the gun is awesome, got me threw a lot of wars and sticky situations, it never failed me and is running strong after about a year of use (I use it every weekend) If ya want a fast gun for a cheap price, get the imagine.

Conclusion: Get this gun
Great for beginners or anyone who are not hardcore players, even if u were hard core, i dont see why this gun couldnt be used
Good tournament entry level gun
Fast
Fun

a 9.5" barrel will shoot just as far as say a 18" barrel.

actually it'll shoot farther than a 18" barrel. since it's longer, it has a greater distance to travel. by the time it is finally shot out of the gun, it'll have slowed down alot due to air resistance and what little friction is in the barrel

what kind of gun do you have? if it is a spyder/spyder clone the only way to get those is by getting a electric trigger frame. the ESP is great and is only about 80 online.

True but not true....why do you think snyper barrels are very long. Also longer barrels have good accuracy

it is not true that a longer barrel has better accuracy. it has been proven by paintball experts(dale price, proff. john, ETC.) so you are an idiot dont post crap that you cant back up.

why dont u all stop worrying about ur spyders barrel size, and save ur money for a real gun...
   

eat evil paint Tuesday, April 13th, 2004 | 8:39 pm PST
first off superdude, not everyone can afford a 1,000. an second spyders can compete with anny other gun out there, look at bad company. they dropped there 1500 impulses and went to spyder AMG's and starting wining allllot more......

superdude - if you're going to post crap like that, don't bother posting at all.

I've seen spyders do a number of things - feed tube suction, recocking at 70 psi - and there are replacement boards and other things you can buy to basically make your spyder kickass. A spyder with a breakbeam antichop eye, no BPS cap and an operating pressure of 300psi will eventually cost you about $500 - less than a vision impulse.

And the only reason BC started using spyders is because they're Kingman's factory team.

damn, a spyder running 70psi, thats crazy. and the new spyder board, (i think it called the T-board) is able to get 36bps,(humanly impossible to walk that fast unless your have seizures) and it comes with a pretty good eye from what i heard for only around 80-90 bux. what a deal.

what is a feed tube suction muzzmastah?

guys 21 inch berrels are a little more acc. but if your playing airball then your screwed

If you bought you're gun from walmart like I did, open up the light-side cover on the grip and look for the two wires that are orange and yellow, then keep looking down next to the battery and there should be two metal prongs sticking out and thats where you put the jumper and it works perfect. And you can get a jumper from a junk computer or radio shack for a few cents.
P.S. You don't need to buy any kind of tournament chip so don't waste youre money.

if your playing at fields dont even bother, they don't allow modes........

Actually longer barrels do give the gun better accuracy because the longer barrels are slightly curved a little which gives the ball a back spin when it leaves the barrel.a back spin on the ball makes it shoot straiter

Also wut are some good upgrades I should get for my spyder imagine(besides a barrel and electro hopper)
   

kmacdaddy Friday, July 23rd, 2004 | 8:00 pm PST
u kno its offset for a reason..so if u get a drop forward the c02 rests on ur upper arm to shoulder
   

bunkerbuster007 Tuesday, December 12th, 2006 | 3:40 pm PST
how do u find this able to compete with higher end guns when u have a stock bord which capps out at around 12bps

ohh yea that compets just fine with a gun ramping at 20 bps
