i was at a camp 2 years ago and we used these markers for pball. I went out for my first time with this gun and thought it was a good gun but i didnt know anything about them. so now that i know a lot about pball markers, i can write a review on them. ok now to the details. i have to say this has a great stock barrel which has excellent accuracy and range. i can shoot over 100+ feet with the stock barel at only 250 fps! and i can hit a 5 foot wide tree from 50 feet away about 7/10 times. the trigger pull was very long as with most low end mech guns.
overall a great beginer gun to use and or buy. i would say it is a very good deal...and u can even get one at walmart for like under 120 bucks with the extra 12'' barrel...dunno know if it is good though...GO FOR IT!!!
Home modded TL-X, CP 2-piece barrel, with a 20oz CO2 tank.
-Aftermarket regulator (for CO2 preferably a Bob Long Torpedo or a Palmer's Male Stabilizer)
-If you can afford it, HPA, if not, at least anti-siphon. This combined with a regulator will help with the velocity spikes.
-Spring kit. Really inexpensive for the job it does.
-Finally, some easy home mods.
-Reliable, when well maintained.
-Simple design,good starting gun
-The price. It's very affordable.
-Not the most gas efficient.
-Mech and long trigger pull
-Somewhat large kick
This is my first paintball marker and already I'm attached to it. I do not regret buying a spyder, but I do regret getting a mech spyder over an electro, such as an imagine. As far as low-end mechanical markers go, though, this has not disappointed.
Before owning this marker, I did not know jack about paintball, but now, thanks my TL-X, I have a much more extensive knowledge about how markers work. In other words, this gun is great for beginners just learning how to get in the game.
It's very upgradable too. Just because it's original cost is cheap does not mean it's not worth anything though. With some smart upgrades, such as a new barrel and skill, you can hold your own against players wielding BKOs and Cockers
Overall, I'd say this is definately worth the 80-100 bucks, especially for a beginning paintballer. It's reliable so long as you use it as a chance to learn how to properly maintain your marker. However, unless you know you want a mech gun, you might want to consider getting an Imagine. It's very similar to the TL-X, except it has an electric frame and only costs maybe 20 dollars more. Whichever Spyder you decide to go with doesn't actually matter because after upgrades they all perform nearly the same. Nevertheless, Spyders are great for beginners and intermediate players who are price consciencious
