The Kingman Spyder Imagine is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Spyder imagine, ricochet 2k hopper, 20 oz c02 tank, PMI razzor 14", and 32* drop forward
New agitated hopper, new barrel, and drop forward
fast ,good trigger pull, 13 bps, good price for an electro
stock barrel, and no drop forward
This gun has all the features of a pro tournament gun but it's price is much lower. It's a good gun for someone who wants a good electronic gun on a budget and it has a good quality manufacturer (not a crappy clone). I play against my friends who have flashes e99s cockers and I still take many of them out. BUY THIS GUN YOU WON'T REGRET IT
buy it and have fun it's fast and cheap you will never regret buying it
I guess they're not really similar but they are markers: Piranha BL and a Tippmann Pro-carbine
Green Spyder Imagine, CP chrome 12" barrel, CP chrome flame drop, ACI Silver Vert Feed Adapter, CiP Silver Sweet Spot Trigger, shortened trigger pull, eVLution II hopper, 20oz CO2.
IPI (push-button fire-mode switch)
easy to clean and maintain
O.K. stock barrel
trigger frame not waterproof or water resistent (not surprising)
Overall this is a pretty good gun. easy to clean and maintain.
Though you might need to cut the velocity spring a bit if you got it brand new, well that's almost with every new gun so yeah.... When i first got it i was shootin 304 fps. i chronoed it down to about 290 and then the spring was starting to be visible. so at an arena, one of the employees gave me a more flexible spring so it could go down to about 260.
if you shorten the trigger pull (if you don't know how to do it, ask a paintball shop employee or somebody to do it for you)
I haven't chopped any balls yet. i dunno what's wrong with yer guys' imagines that are choppin lol.
a new barrel is suggested
With my new CP 12" i went to an arena and it was shootin hella accurate. no wind also help too, but you know.
overall a pretty good gun, it's pretty low expense too, i recommend this to noobs and novice alike.

spyder imagine, dye boomstick 14", bandit bolt, 15 degree assault block, 5 inch drop forward, turbo valve, dye red dot sight, ricochet ak hopper
you must replace this stock 8" barrel.. it's hideous
the electronic trigger
no drop forward out of the box. very loud
this gun is a decent gun for someone who wants to get started in paintball. you'll definitely need a barrel upgrade b/c of the often inaccurate 8" barrel that it comes with. the bolt isn't that hard to cock back like some others have complained. the sight rail isn't really that sharp so don't worry about it. it's a sweet looking gun and well balanced if you add a nice drop forward and a longer barrel.
i also upgraded the bolt to a lighter, faster bandit graphite bolt and noticed that the gun became much louder. so loud that i've startled people when i test shot in ranges.
overall, i think it's a decent gun to start off with. once you upgrade a few items, you'll find that it's an enjoyable gun for an avid player, and an even more enjoyable gun for a newbie. not to mention that the price has dropped significantly too. i've seen some for $124 complete. i give it an 8 b/c there is a ton of aftermarket and is also a great value. good luck.
Orracle E-class auto cocker, soon to get many upgrades
AA barrel for spyder,
Good price, durable, excellent for beginners and advanced players.
Barrel, battery life, trigger frame and button system.
I woulda have to say I am speechless. Its a great gun and thats all I have to say. well okay..it also comes in two excellent colours and its from Kingman so you know its quality.Buy it, get a few upgrades and you will simply dominate the field.
Its a great gun, great price, and great for anyone.
-Shoots fast, far, accurate
-Three round burst and full auto
-Balls break a lot in the barrel
-Kind of heavy
My friend just bought this gun and let me test it out. I loved it as soon as I shot a couple of balls. It didn't give me any trouble like some markers. It didn't jam the whole time he was using it. The responsive trigger allows for pulling of many shots in little time. Obviously the three round burst and fully automatic abilities are awesome. The only problems with it is that it ways a little heavier than I'd prefer and about 1 out of 30 paintballs break in the barrel. It could have just been his balls though. Anyway this gun really impressed me.
I recommend this to everyone. This gun shoots fast, far, and accurate, it rarely jams, and it can go on three round burst or full auto. It's a great paintball marker.

-Green Spyder Imagine
-All-American 14in. Black
-12volt VL Rev. Black
-20oz CO2 tank
-JT nVader Thermal
-Redz 4+1 Pack
-Dead On Pro Style Drop Forward
-32* Remote (Don't use it)
-Trigger Job (side-side)
-Clear Macroline Kit: 90+180
New barrel, an electric loader, drop forward, and maybe a regulator
Cheap, Upgradable, Electric
Doesn't come with a drop forward
Since this is my first marker, I'm very satisfied with it. With my new barrel, All-American 14in. I can say that it is one accurate gun. This can easily compete with other higher end guns considering the entry level price. With the right upgrades, you can count on this marker to grow as your ability and interest increases in paintball.
It may not be the best marker, but ain't all spyders practically the same?
Save the 30+ and get an Imagine instead of the E-99, and use that to upgrade.
Coming from a beginner to you guys, who are probably just starting out like me, I highly recommend this gun to anyone that wants to jump into paintball and be able to grow without having their marker hold them back.
Spyder Imagine w/ a 14" dye barrel, a shoulder stock, and a barrel stock (dupod)
new barrel, drop forward, electronic hopper
Super good accuracy (w/ new barrel) new barrel is just better, quiet, cheap
doesn't come w/ drop forward, the chip inside is water sensitive, no 6 round
This gun is just a total bad a$$! It kicks my friends butts, and they have e-99, tippman a-5, and spyder electra's. nice accuracy stock, better upgraded, stocks add a nice touch if your like me, and you are a sniper. the trigger pull is super sensitive, and once you get used to it, changing it from semi - 3 round - fully auto is a breeze. don't play in the snow?rain, chip is expensive to replace, but that goes w/ any electronic marker.
BUY THIS GUN- it is cheap and efficient, and if you aren't willing to spend over $300 on a nicer gun, this is the gun for you
spyder imagine with 20 oz. Co2, straight metal elbow, regualer hopper, stock barrell (good)
straight elbow, electric hopper, new barrell
fast, push button change, electric, rechargeble, durible, pretty good stock barrell, and relieble.
this is the best gun its freaking awesome i only got it for 120 dollars brand new at acadmy it has 3 burst which i love to use and fully auto but most places iv been to dont allow fully auto but still i like to shoot stuff out back with it. o and of course it has semi auto.
best gun ever made for low price and very durible go and by it now!!!!!!!!!!! (at acadmy for $120)
Tipman 98 and Diamond GT. Neither is close to the level of this Spyder.
10" Ceramic Barrel
Red dot sight
Soon to have an Empire Reloader hopper
Gun works well out of the box. Seems to improve accuracy a little bit with the barrel change.
Quick firing, 1 ball break in over 1,500 balls.
Easily cleaned, and maintained.
Useless sight rail, as the hopper is directly in front of it.
In my opinion, this marker is an excellent choice. It fires fast without breaking balls even with the regular hopper. Comes with all the "bells and whistles" right out of the box for a very reasonable price. I changed my barrel to a JJ ceramic 10", to gain some range and accuracy. Although the "stock" barrel is not bad at all. The sight rail looks very nice, but is useless due to the hopper being in front of it. You can use a red dot sight, although I don't feel they work well at all.
Excellent! This is an easy marker to operate and works very well.
Spyder 2000 (Much lighter, but much slower)
Tippmann ProCarbine (Didn't like the position of the forward grip)
Diablo Inferno (Again, lighter but slower)
eVLution II loader
20oz CO2 with anti-siphon and on/off
J&J Ceramic, 14in
Smart Parts All-American, 12in
The stock barrel is not that bad. The lack of porting makes it much louder than the aftermarket barrels I have. A fast loader is a must, even in semi mode you can outshoot a gravity fed loader. The eVLutionII is more than fast enough.
Does not chop
No drop forward
I bought this marker because it offered the best value for the money. I got mine for $120. For that price you get an electronic trigger frame, low pressure chamber, small expansion chamber, battery, charger, a pretty good stock barrel (pretty loud, but the accuracy is not bad). You must get a motorized loader or you'll be choping balls on their way down the feed. I've shot several cases of Marbz through it without a single ball break. The rig is pretty heavy. If the walk to the field from the staging area is on the long side, you'll have to swap the gun from hand to hand to avoid getting your right too tired. In the middle of the game I do not notice the weight at all. It's quick to get on target and you can easily move around bunkers.
A great value for the beginer player. You get all the things you need on your first marker.
