Tippmann 98 Custom - Just as durable, but not as easy to clean
Spyder Sonix - Few features
12 Inch J & J Ceramic
20 oz. CO2 (sometimes i hook up my remote)
Aluminum Feed Adapter
I plan on getting a Vertical Feed WGP Autococker sometime too
Some kind of Aluminum Feed Adapter - its not necessary but you will never have to worry about broken elbows anymore.
A new barrel - I like J & Js but a new barrel isnt necessary if u dont have the $$$ to spare
Maybe a new drop forward
Maybe a new Regulator
Basically its all about preference
Comes stock with a lot of nice upgrades, Great Price, Nice feel, Works on CO2
I took it out of the box and I was taken in by the desgin of it. Its better than most Spyders. So i hooked up some air and started firing it. I got it to fire pretty fast for a semi thanks to the light trigger pull. It was kinda loud but i didnt have a barrel on at the time. As for accuracy, I bought a new barrel right away just beacuse i love J & J barrels so i havent really tested the stock barrel. It does seem good though, its a lot better than my friends stock barrel from his Sonix. The regulator got a little cold but that is to be expected with CO2, plus i had it laying horizontal on my shelf prior to firing it. When i took it out a second time after sitting vertical overnight, it washardly cold at all.
This is an extremely nice gun for the price, only $130 online. Spyders haven't always been my favorite guns but i was impressed with this gun. Whether or not you should get it is up to you. This is currently a between autococker gun for me, but it does make a high end begginer gun or a nice regular gun if you add some upgrades to it.
This gun is excellent. The second I opened the box i knew this was the one. This gun is a top rated non electric and comes built strong. I am yet to have a problem with this gun and it works like a rock, never has it broke or stalled, and never breaks balls in the chamber. This gun come with a gauge, dropfoward, and pretty decent stock barrel. Also, this gun is unbelievable when it comes to Co2. I usually go paintballing for about 4-5 hours when I go, and no exaggeration, I maybe hav to get the tank re-filled once. Thus gun is excellent and I highly recommend it to anyone.
