I have used the spyder Xtra, SE, TL plus, 2000, and Compact. Also the Tippman 98, and PiE2 Black Dragun
PiE2 Black Dragun with smart parts stainless barrel, 48ci nitro tank, and 12 volt revolution hopper
For this gun I would truley reccomend nothing- dont waste your money, but if your intent on buying this marker, I would suggest a venturi bolt and revy (to stop ball chopage)
The stock barrel is pretty good considering it is stock and the gun looks beuatiful! It is pretty durhable compared to other guns and is easy to field strip (but not compared to newer guns)- no tools required to feild strip. When it is shotting correctly I guess it preformed up to par. Barley though.
Where to start. The trigger pull is really long and the gun comes only with a single trigger. Its kind of heavy and you need tools to change the velocity. But the main problem, the thing that makes this gun a low number on my scale is its unreliabailty and incrediable ball chopping rate. I was chopping balls like crazy. Every game. The ball shell would be trapped inbetween the bolt and chamber and it would not only get paint everywhere inside the gun, I could not reock it and would have to call myself out. The manual (which is good actually) told me that my hopper was not feeding fast enough. So I got a 9volt reavy. Even this and a later addition, a venturi bolt, would not fix the ball chopping problem. This would cause the gun, even If I shot through the break to have horribly erratic accuraccy. The rof fire sucks, but no one excpects high rof from this gun. Did I say the trigger pull is long. I am giving it a 2 because I have to save one for a marker that falls apart when I pull the trigger.
This gun really is a piece of garbage. I see no reason why anyone should get it. It has no advantages to speak of. All it does is chop paint and cause problems. There are much better markers for in the 150 price range. Seriously, dont buy this marker.
