The Sonix Pro is only available as a prepacked retail kit in major sporting goods stores like Dick's. It is not listed on Kingman's websites and is not the same marker as the Sonix, Sonix Value, or "Sonix 05". The Kingman Sonix Pro paintball marker is designed for the intermediate player and is the only mechanical marker made by Kingman which features a vertical (90-degree) trigger frame. The Sonix Pro marker is a top-cocking marker with a vertical ball feed and a large expansion chamber. It is only available in a black/red paint scheme, packed as a kit which also features V-type goggles with flexible face protection and anti-fog treatment, a 12-oz aluminum CO2 tank with a safety valve, and a 200-round hopper.
The Kingman Spyder Sonix Pro is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
Stock Spyder electra 08 w/empire reloader b and 20oz. co2 tank
Spyder sonix back-up.
Good for the price
Stock barrel not great
This was the first marker I bought. Out of the box it was a good beginner gun and had good velocity adjustment, and was accurate enough. The first few times I played with it, it held through and was always a great marker. It was also one of the more quiet guns I had used. It was also effecient. It gets about 800 shots per 12 oz. co2 tank. This makes this marker very cost effective.
On the other hand, it has a cheap design. The handle is comfortable but designed out of cheap plastic. And the asa is screwed on with weak srews and is attached to the cheap handle. This caused problems. My brother screwed on the tank to tight and when I screwed it off, the asa completely ripped of the handle. Therefor I had to screw the asa back to the handle without putting the screw through where the gas goes through. I don't think this was a freak thing either because I had bought to sonix's and The other one developed a crack at the asa and handle and eventually ripped apart. So I dunno. Besides that, the gun had a good design.
I would recommend this gun to a beginner or someone tight on cash. I would also recommend it to someone who wants to mess with it and modify it. Overall it is a good gun in terms of bang for buck.
barrel and if you got a bit of cash to throw around e grip,acs bolt,new feedneck,and a speed loader
Fast does not often chop very upgradable cheap
Long trigger pull stock barrel
this is my my first ever semi auto marker i brought it on trademe as a referb for 102 nz$ took it out shot it a few times found it wasent very accurate spent 30 nz$ on a new 16 inch barrel and its alot better.I hear the grip breaks easy but mines fine and iv knocked it round a few times.i have had it for almost a year now and no problems
overall i think this is a great gun if your just starting like me and if you really wanted you could upgrade it to a mid level gun if you have the cash.I gave it a 9 due to the barrel
Not really any considering the level of play its intended for
for starters lets get one thing straight, I bought this gun used from a friend, and he was only selling it cause he recently bought an ion and I needed a better gun from what I had.
So I finally got to use it, a few times in both woods and speedball, it held its own in both against mini's, ions, A-5's and even an ego. While it obviously didnt keep up with any of them, It allowed me not to get bunkered to @$%&#! and also let me make a few kills of my own in the process(it should be noted I had the 16" progessive barrel on it, however it also did its job more than adequately with the stock barrel). It never chopped once and I put about 1000 triumph paintballs throught it. This thing could be modded to become a decent woodsball marker, but it plays both rolls very well, this marker is a good one to buy if your just starting out
P.S sorry if the review is incoherent, i'm very very tired
Spyder (easy to accessorize and get parts)
Loud (if you care)
Stock barrel short.
Not a "Cool" name brand
Nice entry level gun.
I bought 3 Sonix Pro, along with the VL Triad and Imagine so that a bunch of us could play. All guns perform equally. Let's face it...if you are looking at the Sonix Pro, you're not a pro and you are interested in recreational painball. The first ultra-cheap batch of balls that I had chopped around 1/50 in all of the above listed guns. The Monster Balls from Walmart haven't chopped a single ball since...I know because I clean all of the guns after our games. We have gone through 5 boxes each of 2000 balls.
The Sonix is maybe a little bit louder than the Imagine, but I haven't played in a game with anyone who had a gun so silent that you couldn't tell where the action was. I can't comment on the CO2 consumption; no one has run out of air yet in our 1/2 day series of games.
The Sonix Pro lacks the E-trigger, but few recreational games allow full auto. The E-trigger is a hassle if you don't need it, because when your battery goes dead your game is over (I've seen it happen).
I recommend it for what it is...a reliable, all-metal, affordable Spyder.
I think buying an entry level gun and sinking 5x the cost into accessories is rediculous. You really don't need to change this one up for some fun games.
All 3 of mine have been 100% reliable for 6 months. You don't need to upgrade to have a basic, though great recreational gun.
Kingsman Spyder Sonix Pro and no acessories yet until i get into paintballing team or something
Longer Barrel 12" or more
Shoots up to 1200 paintballs with 12ounce co2
Accuracy - Only Accurate up to 20 yards
Expansion Chamber keeps Leaking
When i first saw this Spyder Sonix Pro Package first thing i thought was CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP !!! it was only 100 bucks for the paintball gun , 12 ounce co2 , mask , loader , and fixin tools.
The Bad thing about this gun is that its only accurate up to 20 yards so i reccomend getting a longer barrel. Also when i first tried out this gun the co2 leaked out of the expansion chamber so i had to exchange it and the new one i just got the co2 leaked out on that one too so i had to fix it with wrapping around some strings over n over again until the air way was blocked
But the Bright side to this gun is that its cheap also its pretty powerful i get some recoil back when i shoot. Getting a 14" inch barrel would be great for this gun would be really accurate probaly up to 40 yards
If your a begginer you should defnitely get this gun cuz of its great price, light weight , durability , and its very powerful But if your looking for a gun to just play right when you get it with only 1 upgrade this is a gun ur looking for
Fast, cheap, looks cool, cheap, comes in with a mask, a co2 tank, a hopper,
A little loud
Nice gun. Its only 100 bucks witch the gun is worth every penny. It was a nice look. Its black with some red stripes. Light weight and durable. i dropped it down my stairs and not a mark was on it. I saw it a dicks sporting goods and my friend had it so i thought it would be good and i was right it was amazing! Buy it if u can! 10 out a 10
Buy it if ur a noob or just gitting in to paintball. Its a good starter gun!
SPyder Sonix pro
12" Viewloader carbon barrel
20 Oz. Co2
Upgrade features of the Tippmann 98 custom
The accuracy of the barrel varies and is loud, replace the barrel
This is a great gun for the novice player, with the upgrade abilities of the 98 custom. This makes the possibilities of customizations endless. A good thing is the external tournament velocity adjuster. I have used this gun for a little over 3 months now and i have tourneyed with it and has not failed me. The weakness is the barrel abut a upgraded one comes cheap and is well worth it. This was an awesome starter pack and my hat goes off to kingman for the great deal and value of this package.
you CAN NOT go wrong with this set up, especially for under $100
Smartparts ion, autococker, tippman 98 custom. Ion shot faster,was lighter, and had more upgrades but had problems. autococker didn't get to use to much it shot faster but had alot of problems when I used it. Tippmman was very good wood ball gun had better accuracy didn't shoot to fast but never had a problem. The spyder sonix I've used for about a year shooting and using it at least twice a week never had a single problem ( accept a little chopping but nothing big).
Smart Parts Ion-
1.Freak barrel kit
2.Ion red body kit
3.Dye sticky grips
4.Aim paintball skyforce drop forward (red)
5.Halo B loader
6.New disigns roller wave trigger
prolly some other ups too can't think of any now
doesn't have problems or anything
Great gun for bigginers
accuracy is GREAT
Slow shooter (not a big deal though)
needs better feedneck
grips are pretty bad
The gun is a great gun. A REALLY good gun for bigginers not so good for the little more advanced players. This was the second gun I ever got (first being a veiw loader maxis). When I got it I took it out and started shooting it in my back yard. It shot very good the accuracy was great I shot my friend from about 50 to 75 feet away I could hit him about 70% of the time. First time I went to an arena it shot fine even got shot a few times right up the barrel just used a squeegy and it worked like new.
I'll give it an 9 cause of it's weight and how slow it shoots. It never had problems and it's very cheap price. I would recommend this gun to any biginner paintballer it is a great gun never has problems I took the whole thing apart MANY times ,learned alot about paintball guns, and put the whole thing together piece of cake.
9 out of 10

Very small in size, Extremly light compared to other guns its style
Okay, so I got this for my friend as a gift, he is just starting to get into this sport. And MAN I wish I could of gotten a deal this good when I was first starting up! The gun is extremly small, and light I was very suprised when I took it out of the box. The gun really does shoot fairly consistent, for a gun that cost 100 in a package and a stock barrel I was amazed! Very good for the fast, or front player, but I really recommend getting a faster hopper cause you will want to shoot this gun as fast as you can! I am very impressed with this guns performance and reliability.
Great gun/package for the begining player, very solid gun. Light, Small, Accurate, and GREAT price! Look no further.
