Products Used:
All sorts of spyders and tipppmans. Shoot my friends cocker alot too.
Marker Setup: Raven Nexion w/ a HPA 45cu 4500 psi tank, 14" longbow barrel, and a VLrevolution hopper. Came here to see what else I should get.
Barrel. Paint to barrel match is hella important, but an upgrade barrel gives it that extra muzzle velocity to get it out there.
Strengths: Auto and burst modes have never failed me. Easy to clean.
Weaknesses: Semi leaves something wanting. Jams are common, but hell, I live in the desert.
Review: I like this gun overall. I play about twice a week and I have to say that I haven't been disappointed by this gun save for once or twice. I;m sure the Arizona dust plays a part in some of the jamming problems I've had. ANd did I mention the jamming only seems to occur on semi fire mode. The times I've used auto and burst modes the nexion was flawless. I would use auto exclusively because of this, if I weren't so strapped for paint all the time.
To summarize:
Weaknesses: Semi firing mode gives me all sorts of problems, which doesn't seem to make sense. The jams in the field are common here, but I can't speak for everywhere. Once the RT kicks in it either seems to jam or chop a few.
Strengths: All other firing modes are awesome, and the markers electronics make it easy to customize the rate of fire etc. It is really easy to clean, very, very, very similar to other spyders. Overall its a good fixer upper, and with a few little upgrades I'm sure it will perform excellently.

BTW, while typing this I figured out my chopping problem. My VLrevolution only feeds 10-11 rps, and the default non-adjustable rate of fire on semi for the nexion is 18 rps. SO I guess that once that once the RT kicks on the hopper just can't keep up. SO I guess I see a HALO B in my future....
Conclusion: If you are considering buying this gun, do it. Just be prepared to fork over some more money to make it better. I bought this gun for $319.99, and have so far spent a total of $800. I'll be spending more thats for sure.
9 out of 10
