Spyder/Java Titanium hammer is 56% the weight of the stock steel hammer.
This is a direct stock hammer replacement — no drilling or machining required.
The titanium surface is almost as slick as the surface of a non-stick skillet.
The lighter hammer weight reduces cycle noise and kick at the same time increases gas efficiency, accuracy and cycle rate.
Our hammer costs less and weighs less; the surface is slicker and more resistant to rust than plated stainless steel replacement hammers. Why pay more?
The Dark Horizon Spyder/Java Titanium Hammer is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

This hammer puts the stock hammer to shame.
It is a lot lighter, therefore recycle time is faster making it easier to achieve higher B.P.S
In Combination with an after market bolt will greatly improve B.P.S. and accuracy due to less recoil and faster recycle time.
When Cold it makes a high pitched ding sound like when a coin hits the floor only louder.
This Product is worth it if you are willing to spend the extra money. It has greatly improved my gun's preformance

Weighs less than stock, produces less kick-back which helps accuracy
Well, I bought the DH Hammer/Striker due to an article I read on Otter SC Customes and how it can be used to help make a LP marker.
I noticed a good drop in kick back while firing which helped increased accuracy. You can tell a wieght difference between the Titanium and the stock steel. Very good optional part if going to Low Pressure.
I would suggest in dropping the $39 into buying the DH Hammer/Striker. It's worth the money.
Buy the product, it's worth it's weight (well, lack of weight).
Fenix, Maddman valve, spud bolt, DH ti Sriker (now stock striker), check it 15 degree assualt block, Bob Long Topr Reg, System X drop with on/off, Freak System, IS board with eye and a 50g Switch, Slasher Trigger (modded to fit by me), Dye stickies 3, Crossfire 68/4500.
I bought this in hopes i can get LP on my marker. Well since i put this striker in i have had nothing but problems. Maybe this striker does not like the fenix frame. Maybe they sent me the wrong one. No matter what PSI i used, the gun would start burping if i shoot fast and cause me to chop paint. As low as i could get this to recock was 350PSI. Now thats not to bad but if i cant get it to stop burping it is useless. I poped the stock striker back in and the gun worked flawlessly and the PSI i could drop down to 250 and still shoot 290fps. This weekend i ran a half case of paint with the DH striker and i spent most of that time cleaning my gun as it would burp all the time. I put the stock striker back in and now i was shooting hot as hell. Had to drop the psi down to 250 and it worked perfect. I did not chop one ball with the stock striker. I dont know what i was doing wrong. I used the O-ring it came with, also tried a red striker oring and a nylon on ring. Nothing seemed to help. I did how ever think the feel of the gun with the DH striker was amazing. Just to bad i could not get it to shoot. Even at 500 psi it would burp. I used this DH striker for about month trieing to go lp with it and there is major wear on the striker. The stock striker i used for 4 months shows no sign of wear.
at this time i cant recomend this for a Fenix.

This striker is a good buy if you are someone who likes to mess with thier gun. installation is easy but getting your marker to shoot it's best requires alot of work and a spring kit. even with the otter modded version you still get a drop in fps due to the hammer being so light. another issue is wear. my hammer looks pretty worn after 6 months of heavy use. but most of the wear occurred in the first 2 months. after a certian amount of wear. the rate slows down. i don't notice the wear getting any worse now. if you are strapped for cash though this isn't something you want. you can mod the stock striker and use a spring kit and get pretty close results for free. definitely a rich man's mod.
Get this only if you are willing to spend hours tuning your marker and you have already done all other upgrades.
