Products Used:
I've Owned:
-Avenger (really good beginner gun)
-Piranha EXT G3 Pro (current gun I own and use, I love it to death)

I've Used:
-Spyder AMG (good gun, but you need to charge it, which can get annoying, but you need to expect that from a electro gun)
-Spyder TL + (good gun as well, but i've used better)
-Prolite (1st gun I used, rental, can't remember much bout it... except being durable)
-Impulse standard, with regulator chamber (accurate and fast, but heavy, and alittle on the expensive side)
-Impulse worth around $1200 (won't chop a ball ever with vision eye, extremly fast firing, acurrate but heavy and very expensive)
-98 custom(kinda complicated with the tons of little parts, really durable though.)
model 98 (step up from 98 custom, pretty good gun)
Marker Setup: Piranha EXT Pro G3
12v View Loader hopper
5000psi 68cu Pure Energy Hopper
Freak Jr 14inch Barrel
Recommended
Upgrades:
whew, I've tried just about everything posible, and they didn't seem to work.
maybe a chainsaw? or maybe at the bottom of the ocean where no one can get really pissed off when using it.
Strengths: -Best lookin gun out there
-Cool adjustable stock
-Really Nice Expansion chamber
Weaknesses: -Barrel
-Bolt
-Loud
-Trigger is very stiff
Review: Just like the person before me, this is as honest as they come. I'm not exagerating anything about it.
I don't know if it was just me that had these problems, but man, did it have problems.
It just plain out, didn't work for me.

-It did have a really cool adjustable stock
-the gun looked reeeally cool in my opinion
-the expansion chamber was great
-LOOKED intimidating

- I dunno if that has anything to do with the problems I had with it.
-The place where you hook up the co2, was completly screwed up. It would destroy my -co2 canisters. I took it somewhere, and they supposedly fixed it, but I dont think they did, bc they same problem occured.
-it would cut almost every paintball. I even tried a few different barrels on it, and it still cut every, so it had to have been the bolt.
-I tried taking it apart, and it was just impossible. The parts were in there soooo tight, not even the "Strongest man" off of Espn could take it apart with out breaking it even more than it already was.
-The trigger was really stiff and you could maybe get 2 paintballs per second, if it wasnt cutting paintballs.
-It was a very loud gun. If you shot it, it was almost as loud as a real one... lol.

I gave it a 3 for the minor good things about it...
Conclusion: I sold it to someone on ebay. They replyed saying it worked great for them, so I guess it was just cursed for me or something?? or maybe they havent experienced the problems yet. Like I said earlier, I don't know if I was one of the rare people who got a messed up Gt Commando 2, all I know is that, if you were to go by what I experienced with this gun, the bad out weighs the few good qualities by tons.

Good review, I've owned one of these pieces of junk. I can't believe they are still making these cheap SPyder Rip Offs.

thanks. just being completly honest. yeah, the gun didn't work worth crap for me. when it would chop paintballs, it would literally pour of the elbow and push out the black feed thing hooked up to the elbow bc of all the paint. it was very dissapointing... i'm glad i got rid of it and got my piranha. works great and rarely have any problems =D

how is the model 98 a step up from the 98 custom? I think you have confused the two...

the custom has more parts and also allows for more upgrades

No. He said that the Model 98 is a step up from the 98 Custom...which doesn't make any sense.

The reason it is a "step up" is because it comes better stock then a 98 custom would. Yes the model 98 is older and doesn't have as many upgrades you can do with it, but for just out of the box, it is better.
