Review: As a follow up, now I have used this marker in summer & winter I have found that the X-chamber is not good enough to run Co2 in the winter if you are able to fire faster than about 8-10 balls per second. I over came this by getting an air system. Running it now on low pressure (about 350), getting 850/900 shots out of a 0.8 3000 psi steel tank.
Conclusion: I am very happy with this marker, even with it's faults (that are probably only applicable to me). Well worth the money (£170 inc. delivery). If you want to do upgrades the parts are easy to find. I think that there are some that might like a few more colour choices but I would have gone for the blue anyway. I found it very easy to get use to the trigger, & the amount of adjustment on it would suit most.
I would give it 9.5, but am rounding it up because it is as close to perfect as e-markers get.

Spyder Imagine with Stock and Freak 14" barrel. With the stock barrel its no competition for the DX, but with the Freak 14" I would put it on a par with the DX for capability.
Marker Setup: Spyder Electra DX,. VL Revolution 12v Hopper.
Recommended
Upgrades:
After Market Barrel, Dye Boomstick 14" as a direct replacement for the stock barrel.
Strengths: Performs well straight out of the box, decent stock barrel accurate and good distance.
Weaknesses: Screws not all fully tightened when you get out the box.
Review: Let me start by saying that this is a fantastic marker. Of course you are going to get the people with their autocockers and their £1000 setups knocking a Spyder, itís inevitable. So letís not get involved in one of those debates. I am going to review the gun for what it is, what it does and how well it does it.

Looks wise it looks the dogs bollox, the matching barrel and smooth pale blue colour compliment the gun nicely. Once you get a VL Revolution and your gas bottle attached. This thing looks menacing. First time I used this marker was a couple of weeks ago and people were genuinely impressed when I set it up.

The looks are one thing, and to a degree influenced my decision in the purchase of the marker, however performance is what we are all here for at the end of the day and man does it perform. This being an electronic marker means that you can get a serious rate of fire from it. I had 1000 paintballs to start out with and by the end of the first game had gone through 400. I found myself adjusting my trigger happy play by the end of the day and being a little more conservative, as 3000 rounds in one day seemed a little excessive to me. Some people have passed comment on the stock barrel being inaccurate etc. but I have no issues with it, yes the boomsticks may perform better, but the range and accuracy with the stock barrel, I was heavily impressed with. I managed to pick a few people off from a distance and in very few shots for example.

Another important factor is chopping and I can safely say it isn't an issue with this gun, it fires consistently and within those 3000 shots I did have one ball break, unfortunately this was broken when I filled my hopper, but it did mean that for a short period I had paintballs spinning off in all directions.

The other great thing about this gun is how easy it is to strip and clean and it doesnít take a genius to put it back together again.
Conclusion: Having never used every single paintball marker out there, I cannot give this gun 10/10 as that would mean it is perfect and there is nothing better out there. I give the gun 9 as it performs well, the stock barrel is accurate, no issues with chopping. Like I said earlier though, you will want to tighten those screws before your first outing.

JT Excellerator, good gun, very fast firing semi auto. I like the LCD on my JT a whole lot better than my Electra DX, but the overall performance of the spyder is far better in my opinion than the JT.
Marker Setup: I have a Spyder Electra DX with a 20 oz Co2 tank, V force shield mask, and a Ak ricochet hopper.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Definitly an electric hopper and a 16/20 oz co2 tanks because with this baby your goin to be firing a lot of balls. Also a new barrel.
Strengths: 1. Its got a great appearance
2. Its really easy to clean
3. It has four different modes: semi auto, 3 spurt, 6 spurt, and full auto
4.The LCD menu is easy to figure out but I would definitely suggest reading the manual first.
5.It has a decent drop forward but I would suggest upgrading
6.The customer service is awesome
7.It looks so intimidating that it scares away the competition!
Weaknesses: 1. The gauge sometimes is inaccurate
2. The manual stinks. It is roughly translated from some foreign language. but like I said earlier the customer service makes up for it.
3.The barrel it comes with isn't that great
Conclusion: Over all this gun is great. I absolutely love it and I guarantee if you buy this gun you will be more than happy with its performance!
Happy shooting!!!!!

Products Used:
Tippmann Custom 98
Spyder Compact
Sypder Esprit
Marker Setup: Spyder Electra DX
12v Revvy w/ X-board
12in Dye Ironman Boomstick
Psychoballistics Chrome Drop-forward
Recommended
Upgrades:
1. The ONLY thing that i seriously recommend 'upgrading' on this marker is a 12v revvy. I wouldnt shoot the gun without one. It's hard to appreciate its lightining fast speed without a loader that is up to par.

2. The first thing that i would do to this gun is to purchase an after market barrel. Don't get me wrong, I think the stock barrel is just fine, but if i had to choose, it'd be the first thing to go. In my opinion a 14 in Dye Boomstick is the only way to go.

3. Secondary upgrades that i would recommend for this marker are only if you want them and you have the money lying around. The drop forward isnt huge and the expansion chamber is more of a grip than a functioning component. If you want optimum comfort and efficiency out of this gun, a bigger drop and x-chamber would be great, but not necessary.

4. Lastly if you want something sweet to show off to the boys in the neighborhood, id look into a sweet spot trigger. It is true that there is some side-to-side motion in the trigger; but thats not why you would replace it with a sweet spot. The sweet spot trigger gives you that hair-clicking angel fast speed, and for 20 bucks its at a price thats not to tough for you to squeeze out of your mom.
Strengths: Reliable
Fast trigger
Accurate
Beautiful
Efficient
Balanced
Multi-Speeds
Weaknesses: None noticable
Review: I would recommend the Electra DX to anyone who is looking into a high end E-marker. The Electra DX is a fast and reliable marker. Coming off of a Tippmann Custom 98, i had high standards in terms of durability and dependability. The Electra has met both of those requirements. The only problem I have encountered with this gun is a leaky hose, and that isnt even a fault of the gun.

The Spyder E-markers are all around great guns. They are ideal for neighborhood fun in the woods as well as weekend tournament play. The DX is sleek and fast, and fully capable of 13 balls per second. With the multiple firing modes (semi, 3-round, 6-round, full auto) you have an array of firing capabilities, literally at your finger tips. Unlike the E-99, the Electra DX's firing modes can be easily accessed at the push of a button on the back of the trigger frame. The LED display is simple and less complicated than the light display of other e-markers.

After experiencing the mouse-click firing of Spyder E-markers, i would never go back to anything else. The Electra DX is just another testament to fast and affordable Kingman guns.
Conclusion: The Electra DX is a total package. Its everything any player wants and more. Four firing modes at adjustable speeds, expansion chamber, drop forward, verticle feed, and stock 14in barrel! This gun is perfect for all players, it will transform your game.

Marker Setup: Im using a spyder electra dx right now just got it 3 weeks ago. I have a 12" carbon fiber barrel on it and a freak system for it. I run a short 16oz co2 bottle on it, and a black 12V hopper.
Recommended
Upgrades:
A carbon fiber barrel or a freak barrel system.
Strengths: It shoots accurate, it is quiet, its a fast shooting marker. The body milling looks great, and the matte blue color looks good. I think the price was good I got it for $250.00.
Weaknesses: It needs a better barrel from the factory, its needs more distance. Other than that nothing.
Conclusion: Overall it is a great tournament gun it shooots fast,and is accurate with a good barrel.

Upgrades:
BARREL!
Strengths: * Very attractive marker (Very)
* E-Frame and marker is well made
* Same general design as all Spyder markers (many upgrades)
* Very fast marker

Weaknesses: * Cosmetic problems right out of the box (irregular chrome around trigger)
* The plastic grips on the E-Frame sux it harshly
* The barrel is not micropolished in anyway....wont even try to use it.
Conclusion: Ok...the barrel is crap but that is to be expected. The other issues I have with this marker are cosmetic mostly. After seeing the beautiful anodizing and body milling, I had expected better quality for the grips.

This marker is well worth the 220.00 I paid for it.

Regular electra(better grips a little sturdier feel)
Marker Setup: spyder electra dx, 12volt revy,pure energy 20oz, freak kit, immune to all disease
Just got it 2 weeks ago, plan alot, like always.
Recommended
Upgrades:
barrel, and modify the trigger, it suks......bad. It has a lot of movement side to side
Strengths: It is an affordable electro, with an adequate rate of fire. Easy to clean, and change from semi, 3, 6 shot burst, and fully auto. It is also very easy to change rate of fire. Very good gun for beginner, and first electro(maybe).tournament velocity adjuster is also very nice when in the field.
Weaknesses: Dx grips on the E frame are stupid (innapropriate word before I had to change it). Hex nuts that hold E frame come lose in extended periods of fire along with the phillips head screws for the "stupid" grips. It really pisses me off. As I said before the trigger has to much side play. You can't really use the bum sight rail. You also have to use a good paintball, no crappy walmart paint cheapskates, fork over the cash. Not accurate in full auto, better than most if not all other syders though. Also has a double anti feed mechanism that reeks, will have to work on eventually.
Conclusion: This is a good gun for a player with a year of experience, or a little less, probably not for young players. It is fairly accurate, and pretty fast. Also, the milling is not that impressive. Haven't used long enough to have any problems with mechanics.............venturi bolt? The crappy spider guage?
