The Spyder RSX Marker is built for the player that requires the very best in performance featuring the TadaoÂ® Technologies Circuit Board combined with the operational benefits of the "3G" Technology Balanced Valve System. Designed to perform at the highest level of competition... 30 BPS Rate of Fire, low operating pressure, and customizing capabilites that were previously only available on high end markers. Operational at 250 PSI the RSX runs at a low working pressure reducing premature paintball breaks from air impacting the surface of a paintball. The "3G" Balance Valve System is designed to use Compressed Air only as a propellant to obtain maximum performance. Manipulation of the air pressure through the Fast Charge Inline Regulator provides the RSX with a steady air flow for consistent shot to shot velocity even at extremely high rates of fire. A completely independent Vented Pressure Relief On/Off CA Adapter maximizes the flow of air supplied by the compressed air system.

The Kingman Spyder RSX is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
48 ci 3000 psi tank
all american barrel
Easy to pop out bolt
Its a great marker and has everything and more than what you expect from a spder marker. It is basically like the Vs2 but it has more features like the tadao board. The eyes worked very well and it is very reliable and cool looking. It also already has a silver "body-kit" so you dont have to buy a vs2/vs3 body kit. Has an on/off asa which is awesome! 30 bps! BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT!
This marker is GREAT. I would not hesitate to buy the RSX
View Loader Force feed hopper
Crossfire Fixed High Pressure N2 Tank - 47ci 3000psi
Clamping Feed Neck a must
Drop Forward but thats personal.
StockBarrel is decent
Easy to use
A little Heavy
I pick up this gun mostly because i am yes a spyder lover. i haved used alot of guns in the price range and own alot of guns in the price range. Yes i have a proto SLG and i could honestly say that the Spyder RSX is better.
SPEED this gun on uncapped semi- auto is getting you 30 bbs. i have only reached 23 so far but have seen someone get 30. The ramping modes and semi auto you get 15bbs without trying.
ACCUARACY i was shooting a few targets in my back yard about 50 meters away and it hit 8 out of 10 shots. Stock barrel was doing pretty good.
RELIABILITY i let this gun ripp threw 2000 Wal-Mart brand Deep Impact paint and didnt get a single chop so it isnt picky on paint. The eyes were working perfectly making sure there were no chops.
EASY TO USE classic easy to use spyder. simple on and off. a little confusing at first to change modes but easy when you get the hang of it. also has a Vented Pressure Relief On/Off CA Adapter.
FEEL the gun feels nice in my hands sits nice and i feel comfortable this is with a drop forward still feels good without though.
This gun is a little heavier than most spyder. Electra 08 is way lighter than this gun. The Proto SLG is also lighter. You also might want to invest in a clamping feedneck for this to because stock feednack sucks.
I love this gun Best in the price 170 to 600 dollars to me. You may think otherwise but this is what i think. This gun can hang with some of the more expensive guns to like the EGOs. I would reccommend this gun to all paintball players but hey thats what i think. BUY THIS GUN!!. I would like you to get it but if you wanna buy a ion and proto go ahead. it will only be easier for me to woop you guys.

I have a RSX and used it 4 times now, each time playing for a couple of hours. Shooting some 4000 balls am guessing.
It is very reliable and as fast as you probably want. I am using a HALO loader and HPA tank. Have not had a single break, and only once experienced that it did not cock properly.
I am a beginner at paintball and this is my first marker, so don't have much to compare with, but it is easy enough for me and so far very reliable. Even when using the ramping modes.
A couple of issues though. The feedneck(?) is too wide for my HALO loader, so I had to put tape around the HALO neck to make it stay attached to the marker and prevent it from falling off. The difference is quite big, the loader does not fit at all unless you roll a few rounds of tape around it.
Second issue, the ballstoppers fall out. I have lost three already and have only one left (if you don't know, there should be one pair of ballstoppers inside the "chamber" to stop the balls when coming down from the loader). The marker still works now with only one left, I have ordered new, but find it annoying that they would fall out so easily. Will try to glue them I think.
Finally, the balls seem to drift to the right at the end of their trajectory if you shoot at long distances. This is quite consistent so you can still aim somewhat by adjusting to the left, but it puzzles me. Have a friend with an RSX and he has the same issues as I have.
Been wondering what causes the right drift, the only thing not symmetric are the small air holes at the end of the barrel, wonder if that is what makes the balls drift.
Sorry if I used some wrong words, I am used to real guns and not quite into the paintball lingo yet.
I assume seasoned players may have higher needs, but for a starter and semi dedicated player this seems to be very good value for money with the tadao board making it a very fast and reliable gun.
I am rating it 9 and not higher simply because I know there are guns out there costing more than three times as much as this, so there must be room for improvement. But if you factor in the cost I guess this is good 9.

Q lock feedneck, new barrel.
This gun is a good buy for they beginner. I would recomend this over an ion, but for a few bucks more, you could get a really good gun. For the rec player I would personally say to get the D.P. G3. I see alot of short cuts that weremade. For example the bolt is HORRIBLE. Its the most simple a cheap bolts I have ever seen.It also chops paint alot. I choped at least 1 ball every match. If you are spending the money, get something a little more expensive.
It's a good gun for the rec player, but if you are a little more serious, get something better.
clamping feed neck, but no hurry, the twist lock feedneck works great
Trigger is a little shaky, but nothing to worry about
This is a great gun for more serious players, and tournament players.
Deffinantly a great gun.
This is a great gun for mid or back players, you could use it for rushing, but i wouldnt recomend it.
The Tadao board makes this an extremely good gun, with psp ramping, 3 shot burst, semi (uncapped), semi (capped at 15 bps), and mallineum ramping.
I deffinantly recomend it

Cyclone 47cu 3000 psi Compressed Air Tank
Rocking Trigger Frame
Kingman Battery (?)
The accuracy is pretty good on this marker because of the 14 inch barrel. It can shoot pretty fast (30 BPS) and the trigger is adjustable. If I had a little extra money sitting around I would get a rocking trigger frame to make it even faster. This gun has never chopped paint so I'm pretty impressed. It's not an air hog because its operational pressure is 250 psi. Some poeple are concerned with its weight. I guess it's a little heavy compared to high-end markers, but it's not all that bad. Once you get playing and your adrenaline gets rushing you will never notice the weight. One of the true downsides that I see with this marker is the Kingman battery. Sure, it comes with the gun so you don't have to pay $30 for it, but it would be nice if the gun ran on normal 9 volts so that you don't have to worry about running out of battery. Don't get me wrong though, the battery life is great. This is such a minor inconvenience that I'm not going to count it against the gun.
This is a great gun that I would recommend to any entry-mid level player who is looking for a great gun at a low price.
I've used several spyders as well as MANY other guns. been playing for 8 years.

Cant' Find 1 and I shoot it a LOT
I absolutely love shooting this gun. Not only is it one of the smoothest guns I've ever fired, but it never fails to rage people when you roll them with a spyder and it's better than their angel for a fraction of the cost. I would recommend this marker to any level player is they are looking to dominate the competition on the field and enjoy playing to the max.
I am the only guy on my team that NEVER has a single problem with their gun... Every time we go to the field... Every match all day long... Every chrono... Every ball. Perfect.
Yes. Flawless marker. In the top performance on the field. Super accurate. Never chops. Durable. Hands down amazing marker.

I will tell all the details in the review......
if your all accuracy, get a new barrel
for me, the buttons!
a little heavy, not much of a problem
Here are all the key points that are required in every gun.......
For all of you snipers or whatever who like to be ball on ball, I would get an upgraded barrel prefferably a 14" two-piece. I have an all-american and it works like a beast! It blows the "accurate" Tippman out of the water! preffered upgrade.
Tadoa is really one of the best board makers in the buissness, and i was really surprised at the quality that spyder put into the RSX.
It has 5 modes of fire-
-3 shot burst.
It also has a "debounce" menu. Debounce is when you are actually firing more balls than how many times the trigger is being pulled.
Honestly, I have to say I was dissapointed with the feedneck this gun has. I thought Spyder had it all right this time, until I saw this. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND GET A NEW FEEDNECK! My jr. litteraly fell off of it when I tipped my gun to the side.
OK, maybe its just mine, but the power buttons were a pain to turn on the first couple of days i had it. I litteraly had to take an allen key and turn the gun on that way! Afer a few days of breaking them in though, you should be fine.
The bolt is starting to scratch up the inside of my breach, and I have to lube this thing up every time after a day of play. I think this is the reason why the gun has kick. It's optional, but Im getting a new bolt.~~~~~~EDIT~~~~~DONT LUBE THE BOLT MY MISTAKE IT CAUSES THE THING TO SWELL THUS DAMAGIING YOUR MARKER EVEN MORE!!!~~~~~~
They are working like a wonder, not a single chop yet! Im very happy with the eyes.
Be prepared to buy a lot of these, because the RSX will shoot them out fairly quickly. They are not screw in you just place them into these holes. They still work fine, though.
Im kinda puny, but still its not that heavy. By the way i see things, It is the lightest Spyder out there. Not a problem at all.
It's ok...... I find it really hard to get on to but still it is very light and adjustible up to 3 points. The max I can fire on semi is 15.
~~~~~~DOES A VS2 SLING TRIGGER WORK FOR THE RSX?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These are all of the highlights of the gun.
Spyder did an amazing job in producing this gun! It is by far the best Spyder out there and is definatly worth the 270 bucks I payed for it! A solid nine due to the feedneck and slightly to the bolt, and nothing is perfect. but I was blown away with accuracy, consistency, and speed! I would preferre it to any level player out there who wants a decent gun.

All in all this is an amazing marker for players of any level. It fires fast and accurately. It is inexpensive compared to other markers as good as it ($225 at action village). It fires up to 30bps and chops almost no paint. I have about 5 cases shot through it and haven't chopped a single paintball.
