Only get upgrades if you play alot. If you do play alot get a Teardrop Barrel (14'') It will make your electra accurate as hell, and of course get an electric hopper(revi or richochet 2k it will save your wallet) and a rechargeable battery(that is one beginners should consider also). Take off the sight rail. Trust me taking off the sight rail makes it look cooler(kinda like an bob long intimidator) and its a bunch of extra weight you dont need. Besides how are you going 2 use a sight rail when it has a vertical feed. If you're a real run and gun kinda guy get a check it products sweet spot trigger cuz the stock trigger is kinda flimzy. This gun works sweet without upgrades so don't get me wrong when I bought lots of upgrades I just play tournaments.
Strengths: Light . Doesnt Chop Balls . Accepts Co2 or Compressed Air(Nitro).Reliable. Cheap. Accurate
Weaknesses: none (besides the wait for it 2 ship)
Review: This gun is just hella sweet. Buy it you'll love it. It beats a Raven Nexion any day trust me. I have used it for 6 months in 12 different games and havent had a problem. This gun has a lot of bang for the buck and is intimidating as hell. For only $180 its a good buy. I took this gun out for a rec. woods game and played capture the flag 2 vs.2. with my friends. The person on my team had a Raven Nexion (bad ass gun) and we both had camo from top 2 bottom. Our opponents had a Tippmann A-5 with a response trigger and a Spyder Flash. Our enemies also had Jt jerseys on and were insanely easy 2 see. I set my Ricochet 2k electro hopper for a 15 minute game. 3-2-1 The game started we had no bunkers just trees and brush in the woods we played in 2 get behind. There was one flag in the middle of the woods in a fairly open area. Me and my partner moved up field and we were playing with 3-burst R.O.F. I got in a fire fight with my friend that had a Tippmann A-5 it lasted for a hefty while(or so it seemed) until I got a lucky shot through the thick brush into his chest. Then only one opponent was left and my team mate was still with me. This is when it became a piece of cake. We moved up field and used team work to get the flag. The man with the spyder flash had co2 problems and thats when I made my move got the flag and brought it back to my base. That was the first time I used my $180 gun. I love this gun for its price and reliability. I can out gun many autocockers with it and it cost half as much. So don't be stupid and buy a cocker-sucker.
Conclusion: Buy an electric hopper for fast fire rates and thats all you really NEED(not want) You will have people with higher priced guns eating paint in no time. I give this gun a 10 out of 10 because thats what it truly is.

hey, good reveiw and i agree with everything except the part about the sight rail and it only ways about an oz to me not a "bunch" and even though it is vertical feed the sight rail helps a little bit, but it does look like a dye matrix without it

Hey good review but spyders dont even compare with autocockers. Autocockers are the most accurate guns on the market. They are one of the most upgradeable guns also. Now i can out shoot my hopper time to time when im messing it can be just as fast. Also im counting in the e-blade....they can shoot over 22 a sec. Spyders shoot like 13 tops, so they arent even close. Dont mean to burst your bubble but you dog autocockers like that.....especialy if you dont have one
