Review: I got this gun after doing tons of research on it. I was not dissapointed at all, the rodeo murders my opponents with no effort, my best friend has his own feild so i play all the time.
Things to do right out of package- Sand down the beaver tail i cut my thumb and then got hit a few times in it(not fun). Take gun apart to see how it works if ur a begginer. Oil down the trigger because mine was very noisy. Besides that it comes ready to shoot right out of the box. It did not give me the right tool to adjust the regulator took me a while to find all my collection of the tools.
Paint- i have shot lots of kinds of paint through and i have been very pleased.
I play every weekend and in the past 4 weeks i think only 1-2 balls broke in my gun.
Draxxus midnight- works great none broke in my barrell
RPS- NO problems exept it did always break on opponents bodies
PMI premium- my friend gave me a thousand of the paintballs and at least over a hundred broke- not a problem with the rodeo cuz 4 of us were usin the paint and they all broke- i believe that they broke the least in the rodeo.
BIG BALL- worked fine no problems
I&I house paint- I think i have only broke one out of a few thousand but my friend shot the bag incedently and broke one of the balls so that might have been the reason.
Last monday i was playin this kid and hit him 5 times and not one of them broke (annoyin cuz it hurt so much that he stopped playin, funny he was wearin like 5 shirts and i hit him far away, no more wastin paint on him)
ZAP recreational-no problems but im gonna stick with the housepaint when i play at my friends house.
The regulator is great but the gauge is not as accurate as i would have liked.
My friends think the bolt is hard to cock back but i dont have a problem with it besides you basically only have to cock it back once.
This gun is good for everyone if u fire fast or if you conserve paint .

Some 6th graders that go on my bus heard about the gun and like 4 of them bought it, they love it ( i think it is annoyin cuz i tell them some things and now they think they r pro at pb, but i love killin them on the feild)
Conclusion: If you are looking for a great gun get this, it is available for lots of upgrades like most spyders. Sand down the beavertail also because it will scratch your lense.
I have not had any problems with it at all, works perfect ever since i got it, my friends electra is given him some problems(hose broke,won't cock back even on a full tank unless his velocity is either high or low i should check(it could be he got a hard new spring, we should check it out, he also has to play compact right now because his new bottomline screws keep comin out,) very easy to clean , good camo if ur playin woodsball. It did not come with all the right tools so ur gonna need some small wrenches.
