spyder fenix. rodeo, sonix pro, tippmann 98 custom, tippmann x7, and various others
Lets see... it might make an effective club, granted it stays together
when I got it, most of the stuff was junk
i bought it for $40 and it started leaking C02 immediatley. the bolt, expansion chamber and all o-rings were shot. there is no ball stop (at least on mine there wasn't) and the paint fell right out of the barrel, thoroughly coating my friends garage floor. the local expert said it was hopeless, being the fact that there is almost nowhere to get replacement parts in our area. 32 degrees may make a good barrel, but i think the gun making should be LEFT ALONE.
avoid it like the plague. Just a spyder rodeo knock-off
This is a very good gun, and its very cheap to get it fixed if it breaks just ship it in and you just pay the shipping Ive used this gun for a while and it broke then i found a where to ship it to and it just cost me $8.50 and that was the shipping

Horribly put together
Broken in box
I decided to buy the Extreme after not alot of thought, I really wish I had known about this site beforehand....
The Rebel came in a boring box, although that's not extremely important. After taking it out of the box and screwing c02 into it, I realized that just about every part on the gun was actually leaking. I quickly took the c02 out and used my n2. Still, everything leaked. The gauge was leaking, so i had to screw that thing in without scratching the paint. Just about every possible screw and bolt was leaking, so I had to go and tighten all of those items up. This was a bit disappointing, because when you screw your air into your gun for the first time you ray to God that everything works. So, I finished up with the bolts and whatnot, put my air in, and everything appeared to be working well. I loaded up my paint, and started to shoot. The balls flew about 5 feet at max before shooting. Being quite a noob at that time, I called nation paintball supply, and an irritable guy comes on the phone and starts talking after being on hold for about an hour. He tells me that the bolt is in wrong, so I fix it. It is RIDICULOUS that a gun comes in assembled incorrectly. Then, after a few games, the ball detents stop working, and so does everything else. I fix it all, play for a few more games, and it all breaks again. I swear to God, if you want a gun to practice fixing, just grap this piece of crap and start playing with it. It doesn't even shoot straight. I did like the barrel, however, and it wasn't horrible for a stock. The settings were nice, along with the trigger.
Although there are some nice parts, all of that is oblivious when all the parts fail to work together properly. However, now that you can buy this thing at 888paintball for 100 smackeroos, its really up to you on whether or not you want to spend the rest of your paintball life fixing a gun that you got on discount. A 4 out of 10
From when I used it better barrel and maybe a better dropforward
-Doesn't chop balls
-Good stock trigger
-Good gas efficiency
Nothing that upgrades wont fix
Kinda a battery hog
Leaks when its cold outside
Its an awesome gun, you'll love it the first time you pull it out. Its looks AWESOME AND SEXY. You'll have no problem working it. All you need is a better barrel (but all stock barrels are bad), and a better dropforward and you'll love your experience with it. Its got an awesome rpm and its easily maneuverable. But with all the good, the bad is still there. Leaks CO2 like crazy in the winter. With the upgrades on performance and the way it looks.... it'll give you something to brag about.
Not here to bore you, read the review. Overall the good outweighs the bad. Good for intermediate and beginner players

I have a rebel 02 xtreme with a 32 degrees 16 inch ice cold barrell and remote kit
get a barrell for it, the added accuracy is incredible. Also bore out the co2 inlet holes going into and out of the expansion chamber, this really makes the gun sing
I have done everything in my power to torcher this gun and it still is like the day i bought it. it is a great buy and fun for the whole family. this gun will make you the king of the paintball field, that is if you are any good at all.
Buy this gun and watch the enemy die....... so to speak

Hmm-- it can look good
Perrty much everything
This gun was a piece of crap
it was my friends. all it did all day was jam, break, and well not work. mabye a bad gun i really don't know. it worked for about 10 minutes of the first game- didn't work after that
so i think you should buy a different gun in the price range -
imagine-- my teacher has this. it is a perrty good gun. that is what i would get
or you could save up and buy a used mag or cocker
Don't buy it-crap- maybe it was a defect but i wouldn't take any chances
tippmann 98 custom and a5, spyder pilot, spyder e99, and spyder victor
spyder e99 evant
not worth it
Nice looking, i guess.
Broken bolt pin, horrible springs, bad power-feed cap, hard to strip, bad ball detent.
Well this was the first gun I got as a newbie, and it just went downhill from there. When I got it for my B-day I took it out to the fields right away. my friends with worse guns than me were pretty jealous and I felt really good, then it started to break. First the power-feed switch fell out and got lost on the field, then when a ball broke and I had to clean it, some how the bolt pin snapped so i had to order a new one, then after a couple a months of not playing the spring went bad making my velocity horribly low so i just gave up ordering parts and just bought my friends E99 which is a million times better.
It is pobably a good gun but not mine. Buy a tippmann or a spyder.

Not sure, only used a few times. Maybe a electric hopper because the one i tested broke balls
Fairly quick, looks, strong (durable) , didnt seem to use lots of co2
Broke balls alot, HUGE trigger pull
This gun seemed quite good. It was my brothers who played a few years ago. I liekd it, but this weas before i started to play PB, so i didnt konw much about anything. The gun seems well built, liek it would last a long time. It is fairly quick, was very consistent, not air consuming either. I love the look of it. If you get a good rythm youll start to be able to get it shooting fast, I just dont like the fact that the trigger pull is so long. It did break alot of balls though. Soo ill have to take the rating down a little bit.
Overall, I would recomend this gun. Its sexy, built strong, and worked great. Its not a bad price either. Go buy it, you wont be disappointed.
Chops with bad paint, Stock barrel sucks, Dropforwards is horrible.
When I got this gun I wasnt into paintball that much. I played at the local fields with rental guns but I was fairly good. I wanted to step it up a notch so i wanted my own marker. Well I got this. Its a fairly good gun and it has its strengths. But i would reccomend getting a BTB or a PsychoBalistics Silver bullet.
Good starter gun. Great with some mods. Looks cool.

Its a great gun for any new or moderate player of paintball. The two bad parts are cheap ones to get easy to find and easy to fix too. Ive used it for about 2 years now and i love it. With the right mods its a very intimidating gun. The only part thats ever broke on mine is the sight rail because i wasn't paying attention when i took it apart one day so when i put it back together i ended up breaking it so my rail wobbles a little now. Its a very dependable and durable gun.I give it a nine because its a great gun with a few minor factory problems.
Its a great gun for any new or moderate player of paintball. Its a very dependable and durable gun. Id recommend it to anyone thats just now getting involved in paintball.
