More than 5 years
Products Used:
spyders, most spyder clones. (high end guns also, but they arent really very similar are they?)
Marker Setup: Bob Long millenium spyder body. AKA turbovalve, AA messiah reg w/ dye gauge, drilled vert adapter, MAKO electro frame. macroline. Xgen A.S.A. w/ custom 4 inch drop forward. 68/4500 Warped Sportz HPA tank, Eggo2 clear hopper, And 16" nickel CP barrel (and no, a longer barrel doesnt make it a better barrel, i bought it long cuz it looks better).
TO ALL THE NEWBIES: Venturi doesnt do diddly! in fact... if u want to make ur gun low pressure, u need to take out the venturi in ur bolt. so to get ur gun shootin tourney style like mine: buy a new trigger frame, a reg, a valve and C.P./Lapco Bigshot barrel (there u go newbs, those are the best 2 barrels if u wanna go low pressure dont listen to anybody else, i promise, actually freaks are just as accurate, but they are too ported an cost $$$). theres more junk, but thats the key stuff u'll need to cough up the dough for.
Strengths: vert feed. very durable/millable body. fat bottom for low pressure. cocker ball detent.
Weaknesses: decent beginner marker, but nuthin special if u dont upgrade it. pain to clean
Review: This is just like any other blowback spyder clone. Except where it counts, the body. This is THE BEST SPYDER BODY YOU CAN BUY. And if you want to upgrade, you'll need it to get the lowest pressure and the fastest ball feedage. The thing is, the body is thicker (You can make more pronounced milling designes) the ball detent is better (any little thing helps, ur spyder clone IS going to chop when ur shooting 15bps with ur mako frame. because it doesnt have a vision eye and it will begin its life with high pressure, and it is a blowback openbolt, so, any little thing helps). lucky for you, as soon as you get it low enough pressure (mine is in the high 200's while a stock one would be about 850) it will usually pinch the ball instead of chop it, then you can just pull back the bolt drop the ball back in the chamber mess-free. The biggest bonus of the Bob Long Millenium, is that the bottom tube of the gun is fatter, which means, more airflow and consequently lower pressure (better efficiency, more quiet, fewer chops, slightly more accurate...). Of course, there is also the bonus of it being verticle feed, and no, powerfeed is not the fastest (even if it does have the word power in it lol). Also, this site has turned into newb central, a lot of stupid comments. oh yeah, this is why its a pain to clean: you have-to remove the gripframe and the screws (most guns have the pin, which really is easyer) just to oil it up. On your newer spyder for instance, you just take out the pin.
Conclusion: if u want a spyder type gun to upgrade, this is the one. IF YOU THINK THERE ARE SUCH THINGS AS SNIPERS IN SPEEDBALL, THAT LONGER BARRELS SHOOT FARTHER AND WITH BETER ACCURACY, THAT BOLTS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ACCURACY, OR THAT HPA MAKES UR GUN A TRILLION TIMES BETTER then read everything i have written above so u dont go around soundin like a newb anymore. I give it a 9 because its a major pain to clean/polish/oil, and its not that great stock.
