Barrel (J&J), New expansion chamber. But then again you don't need anything considering this gun already rocks.
Look at review.
Yeah there were tons of weaknesses... NOT. THERE IS NOT ONE! THIS GUN ROCKS!
PROS: FAST!!!, quiet ,looks, weight, most upgrades already on gun, ability to change speed and settings,counts amount of balls shot,easy to field strip, accurate, reliable, uses any kind of paint=no breaks, rate of fire.
This gun is one of the best out there. It has tons of upgrades all ready on it. If you bought a 98c and upgraded it to have the same upgrades the flash has you'll be paying twice as much. I don't know why they discontinued it. You can find it really cheap on ebay now. Like $40 with an electric hopper and new barrel. It's crazy because this gun is the best!!!! It deserves a lot more than it's receiving.
The best one out there! Go buy it! EBAY!!!!

This was the first marker that i ever owned, i think it is probably the most under rated marker ever. I have used a-5, custom 98, an angel, and a few auto cockers, as well as a zeus, and, for the price, it is a great gun. Besides the barrel there are few modefications that need to be done. I have used this marker for 4 years, and it has been nothing but reliable. It is easy to clean, and easy to strip. Most of the problems that people have with this marker can be remedied by just cleaning and oiling regularly. I recommend this marker to anyone that wants a low end electro, although they will be hard to find because they are discontinued.
For anyone thats strapped for cash, and wants somthing quick *notice didnt say fast*, and reliable i would recommend this marker. Great product. Very durable. I am giving it a 9 because it can chop when firing quickly.
Tippman 98 Custom
Worr Games Vertical Feed Auto Cocker
-Spyder Flash LCD
Some good derlin bolt
14' Smart Parts All-American Barrel
PMI 68 4500 psi
Deffinetly a NEW BARREL (stock barrle the worst thing i have ever used)
HPA is very nice but CO2 works almost just as good
ROF very fast (adjust trigger pull)
accuracy with new barrel
with CO2 not as amazingly accurate but good
a little big
This gun is really a great gun especially for beggingers and intermediates. I adjusted the trigger pull by loosing a skrew in the frame and i am able to fire way fast then all my friends. When we go to paintball fields i am able to keep up with the Auto Cockers and Impulses. The Flash LCD is also very cool with the LCD screen being able to see how many balls u have shot and being ale to put the gun fully auto. Its a pretty sick gun.
i would recommend this gun to anyone who wants a very competitive gun with out spending $500. Very upgradeable and well worth the price. I would give it an 8.5 because its deffinetly not the best gun out there but well a very good gun for someone who wants a good gun.
This is a great gun and I love it but it has it's problems. At first my gun would only shoot over 200fps and it's hard to hit a guy with a 200fps gun. Also the reg and drop forward SUCKS @$$!!! But you can buy a PMI reg and a Bullet Drop to fix that, and if you do let me know how it works.
Not a bad gun for a Rookie but I would save up and buy a Cocker
All types of spyders, plenty of the k-mart guns, autocockers, tippmans
Spyder Flash LCD
16' Dye Boomstick
48cu 3000psi Pure Energy
PhyscoBallistics Bullet D-Forward
Shocktech Superfly Bolt
Evil Valve Kit
Worrgames Black Magic Reg.
Dye Sticky 3 Grips
Revy (or faster loader)
Runs alright off co2
Spyder (lotsa upgrades)
Hard to match colors
Needs fine tuning
OK this gun has a great rate of fire ...the stock isnt really as bad as most people think it is ...the barrel is pretty crappy but if u were to adjust the velocity and tune it the balls would go alittle better ....one of the biggest changes ive seen is when i put in the spring kit ...the gun was extremely accurate with an incredible speed ...it was throwin the balls like rocks !...I mostly use this gun for woodsball and it is great for storming fox holes/bunkers and other places where people try and hide ...the gun is loud off of co2 but preforms pretty well off of it ...to make the gun alot quieter i would suggest a new valve (LPR valve) ..This gun overall is a great gun ..ive had it for over a year and it has served me very well...the only bad thing is that it needs alot of upgrades ..thats if u want it to be quiet,extremely accurate, efficent, and fast ...just like my setup...thats why im giving it a 9...just because its gonna need some expensive upgrades ...ive put more into this gun then its worth..but i plan on keeping this gun for a long time ..so im satisfied
Good gun if ur an intermediate player or novice in the game ...the only down side is its gonna need expensive upgrades
14 inch all-american
12 volt revolution w/ x-board
68/3000 nitro tank
blade sweet spot trigger
new barrel- allamerican works very nice for me
very fast ROF
quiet and very accurate
requires much cleaning
This is an ideal gun for the entry level player and can be turned into a tourny level with a few upgrades. I have only chopped one ball in my 2 years of use with this product. it is very good for speedball because of its amazing rate of fire which can be increased with a good trigger, which i highly recomend. I new barrel is a good idea because the stock barrel is very loud and inaccurate. I have a nitro tank but it is not required for this gun to reach its peak performance.
Overall this gun continues to serve me well and I highly recomend it.
spyder flash lcd
91 cu 4500 psi bulldog tank
smart parts all american barrel
shocktech superfly bolt
quiet if u get a new barrel
loud and not accurate with stock barrel
with CO2 its very loud
i would buy a nexus or karnivor autococker
nitro is probaly the upgrade you would need the most becuse it makes your gun more accurate and quiet
the barrel is another key factor in this gun because the stocker barrel is too short, loud, and not quiet at all
another good thing about spyders is that they make alot of upgrades for them, so you really can make your gun alot better
its ok if you buy alot of upgrades but that cost some money
buy it if you dont plan on playing in tournaments

mech piranna and friends tippmann 98c only things even remotely simalar
other than that, a raced blackmagic cocker,
dye, and gen-e ,nyx ,shockteck matricies, angel 4, angel 4 fly, ir3,dm4, various timmys and countless other markers i cant think of just now
my main gun
dust blue 2k3 gen-e lcd matrix #22155
ardvark : slam bolt/valve system, ak-47 volumizers, trinity lpr
smart parts: 16in allamerican freak system, newer style old 88/45stubby maxflo
mac dev: gladiator reg
custom products: roller trigger
chiply custom machine: ccm no rise
oddysey: halo b victory board ripdrive
and gen -e installed eyes
a standered asa and drop
check it 15* asa
shockteck electro spyder tigger
good cheap beginner electro compleatly ready out the box just gas it up and go
-fairly heavy rechargable battery only lasted a year or so before it stoped charging
good solid gun good noob gun farily heavy but thats in comarison to the other high end markers ive used (apples to oranges) but hey ill own the field with my spyder just as easily as i would my trix as fast as an old lcd angel(as well as lighter and esyier to rip on ) trigger pull is verry heavy for an electro but still fealls feather light compared to a mech marker ( wish u could change out the spring maby u can but i havent found it )
but the switch is still fairly heavy LOUD!!! very loud!!! but over all a great marker
good value for the money the best choice for an entry into tourny ball without blowing bigg bux on higher end guns buy it if u dont have the cash for higher end but if u can wait and save up for something better like a matrix(trixes r the best gun ever PERIOD...)
spyder flash lcd w/- pmi razzor barrel, more on the way
a new barrel, a delrin bolt to reduce wear and tear on the internals
shoots FAST- as fast as you'll ever need, easy to use lcd- many options
the stock barrel, and you must be careful with the velocity adjuster- it will move
I've been using this gun for well over 2 years, I don't understand why spyder discontinued it, it's an awesome gun. The menu is easy to navigate, and the semi lock is good, so you won't hit it by accident. It has a timer, a shot counter, adjustable rate of fire, semi, three and six round burst, and full auto. The knob velocity change can be a pain if you don't set it up right, I chronoed it a week ago, and velocity spikes were limited, even with co2. Be sure to take care of it and it will serve you well. Shorten the trigger pull and it is beast.
if you can find this gun on ebay for a good price, go ahead and get it. I like it because it's simple, reliable, easy to clean, and the stock barrel is pretty dang accurate compared to other stock barrels
Pretty much every other spyder, nexus, pmi.... all the same design
Spyder Flash LCD. Air America Vigilante Reg. Check it 15* Vert Adapter, 2003 SP All American Barrel. Dead on Pro Drop. 4500 psi 88ci PE Tank. 12vt xboard revy
Barrel is pretty much the only thing you really need for this kind of gun. All the other upgrades just make it efficient and sort of more accurate
Electro Hopper is a must. Will chop at high ROF
Great gun for beginers
works well out of the box
Accuracy is weak, but a barrel will solve this
I like my setup, i like it a lot. Out of 8000 rounds of paint I didnt even break a single ball and i was using not so good paint (old RPS Big Ball) With all of the upgrades i put on it, the efficiency is great and it is a lot more accurate. Also the upgrades give the gun a unique look. Some bad things about the gun is the quality of the LCD. The paint on mine is wearing off in the spots of high use (front and top back). Currently I have not had a single problem with my gun. Just keep good care of it and it will last ya for a long time.
Great gun IMO. I love it. The stock parts are worth upgrading if you are planning to keep the marker for a while. The speed is great itll keep up with those boys out there with mags, cockers, and maybee a few angels (maybee). Id recommend this to beginners that are starting out that need a reliable gun that wont keep you out of the game due to technical difficulties.
