Spyder Xtra 2004(TL-X w/ rear cocking) w/ Spyder Rocking Trigger, twisted volumizer, CP Medium Regulator, macroline fittings, and Delrin ACS bolt. Evlution II w/ Z-board, Bulldog 47 c.i. 3000k.
O-Ring. Comes without one, and I went through 5 different ones before it finallysealed.
Well, just from looking at the image provided, you wouldn't think this thing would look appropriate on a gun.... I just got mine a week ago, and slapped it on, and instantly, my gun looked MUCH cooler. Mine's black of course, because I'm killing out the silver on my gun, and it simply looks sick. In many reviews, people go on about how much louder this thing makes their gun... er.... I didn't notice a change in volume at all. Also, it comes without an O-ring. I took the O-ring from the one I already had, and put it on, and the seal leaked like mad. So I went into my local paintball storefront(Paintstorm, CHECK 'EM OUT) and one of their trusty employee's and myself went through 5 O-rings before we found one that fit, and actually sealed it. You can still hear her leakin', but it's nothing serious, very minor.
All in all, very sexy piece to add to your gun, though it takes a bit of 'tinkering' to get it in, and sealed. Didn't notice any change in volume... but worth getting just for looks.
Not a whole lot to review here... a volumizer does just that - adds volume. If you don't have a volumizer on your gun already you may notice a slight consistency increase or a slight efficiency increase, but in general the performance will remain the same. On the other hand, it looks reeeeeeeeally cool and the milling is very fine.
If you want to add a finishing touch to your spyder then go for it. All in all, it's not worth $30 in a long shot, but it sure does look neat.

Eye candy on your gun, Adds volume to your gun.
Price kinda high for a piece of metal
This thing on your gun is just down right sexy man. I'm not sure how much more air it can hold in it but it is very appealing to me. The price seems kinda high for me but hey i think it was worth it. Just make sure you put an o-ring on it to keep it from shooting off, And yes it does happen ppl say "oh it will just leak b/c its threaded, Wrong, it strips the thread and send it shooting a you or your friends.
SAME AS ABOVE

Tippmann 98 Type-R(broken) Kingman E-99
E-grip(for sale) Sweetspot trigger
Adjustable Stock X-chamber
Cyclone feeder Some sort of regulator
Vlocity Jr. DXS Air tank
Not much to say here except that it adds a little bit more shots/lower pressure thus making less likely to chop. It looks really good under my e99 and it does add a little bit of intimidation factor. Mine doesent leak or anything and its cromed. I think thre should be more colors
-Looks Absolutly Amazing
This volumizer is absolute secks to the eyes. The twisting design looks great on any marker.
-Adds Some Nice Volume
Better than the stock volumizer, for sure.
-Way To Expensive For A Stick Of Metal
It's a volumizer. If you change it, it won't drastically improve performance towards anything. It's mainly eye candy for the marker. For that reason, 35$ is a bit too steep for a stick of metal.
Not needed, but adds a great accent to the marker. If you have some extra cash, get one.
- Does lower the pressure a bit.
- Looks really sweet.
- Leaks with stock o-ring.
- If bought new.....really pricey....check ebay
When I put it on it leaked....alot. I went to the hardware store and got a new o-ring which did lessen the leak but it was still there. What did stop the leak was a WHOLE lot of teflon tape. It appears that the volumizer does not screw in far enough, rendering the o-ring useless. Alot of teflon will stop the leak and then it works like a charm.
I would only recommend this product if you want to add a visual upgrade to the gun....it did lower the pressure but not significantly. It looks pretty sweet, thats about it.
