Review: This is one of the best Spyders I have ever used! This thing rips for a Spyder! 14 BPS! I suggest you get a hopper that can keep up with it! Not only that it looks great too! The stock barrel is "meh" I suggest an upgrade. The decently priced Teardrop I got works great! I can easily place 3-5 shots within an inch of each other from about 80-100 feet. I was playing speedball with a bunch of top end guns and was able to keep up with thier rate of fire, and ruled all when I went into the Recball arena. No other Spyder compares! They definately made a great affordable marker this time around! I have put about 2000 balls through it already and only had one break (and it was my fault since I accidentily fed a cracked ball into the gun and it was cheaper practice paint)
The fire modes are very cool, although you'll find Semi-auto to be your best friend since it is in that mode you can achieve 14 BPS, not in full auto. Does not have 6 shot burst, I dunno why sites list it with that. It has a very nice 3 shot burst with adjustable ROF. I like the 3 shot because if you click once it will only fire once, you need to hold it down for 3 shots. So really it's like a Semi-auto/3 shot combo setting. Very useful if you want to group a few shots quickly. Full auto isn't really necessary, you won't use it other then while your at home, and it's not as fast as semi can get. Sometimes the bolt will slip too. Just stick with the other settings they are WAY cooler.
Conclusion: Overall this gun is very well priced and is more then worth the money. I recommend it for anyone who is starting off or someone who is more experienced and is looking for a reliable and inexspensive E-marker.
