this a good gun it neavr breaks paint it shoots fast you can scare you friends by puting it on full otomatic and now i have to fill space so o me o my i think i'm gone a die . what do you get when you fall in love.
this is a great gun for the price and i think kingman did a good job making a n electro gun the people that don't a whole lot of money
Blue Kingman Spyder Esprit with 12" Smart Parts barrel, Chrome PMI Pure Energy in-line regulator, 9v Revo w/JMJ impeller, adjustable drop forward.
As with any marker, NEW BARREL. I like Smart Parts barrels.
Cheap and excellent product.
Shoots fast, light weight, simple design.
I sold my ANS Autococker and bought one of these. I had owned spyders before and liked the simplicity of them (not as finiky as the Autocockers)
Get a new barrel, motorized hopper, and a drop forward and your done!
I didn't like the clear grips, and nobody makes aftermarket grips for these markers.
The specs say 13bps but it is misleading. At full auto, high ROF, it doesn't come close. If you read the fine print it states that the trigger mechanics are capable of producing 13 bps if you can pull the trigger that fast on semi-auto.
The mode selection is a bit slow and it loses it's setting if you turn it off.
I run CO2 and after some long full auto shooting sessions, this gun is getting cold, but what do you expect at 13bps!!!!!
Fantastic marker for newbies or pros alike.
Cheap initial price but lots of room for upgrades!
I give it a 10 because it works great and is an amazing value.
Spyder Esprit, Empire 12v loader, spudnukl bolt, 14" All American 2 w/ freak front, X-Core Expansion Chamber, low pressure chamber and Flame dropfoward
New Barrel, Expanpsion chamber, 12v Loader, Bolt and a bottomline.
Very cheap, Electrictrigger, Many upgrades. W/ a 12vloader u can shot upto 13bps. This gunexcellent!!!!!!!!!
not many: no bottomline and not a verygood stock bolt or barrel and no lpc.
Even though there are some minor weaknesses not any gun is perfect. However these weaknesses are in most anyother marker.
I have not once chopped a ball
Its comes in red. (cool color)
nice looking gun
not many ppl have them
many upgrades are available
the trigger is adjustable
The gun worth mmore then wut u pay for it!!!!!!!
Very good gun for money. I say it worth getting over the imagine or e99 b/c they come w/ the same features. y pay more when in the end the esprit w/ upgrades will be better then those two other guns and still wont put a hole in your wallet.

Spyder esprit,whisper barrel,richochet ak hopper,gas thru grip bottomline set up, 20 oz tank
if you want a bottomline set up get a inexpensive gas thru grip because this gun barly shoots snow so there is no need for a regulator an x chamber. You might want a new barrel but it already shoots pretty good. if you want to shoot full auto get electric hopper. thats all so you could get start playing right out of the box.
fast and slow changer
good safety turn on
nothing this is a great gun to mee
great looking gun
semi (single shoot
3 shoot burst (fast and slow
full auto(fast and slow)
great gun for any type of player
just get this gun it is the best i have ever used out of all the electric rentals
i got it for 100$ usa
you get way more that you payed for
this gun will last you a long time
i liked this gun because it is the best i have used
Spyder E-99 Spyder Xtra, Espirit with and without teardrop barrel...
Spyder Espirit All Stock ( for now)
Teardrop barrel, perhaps a regulator
Very versitile, plenty of manuverablity and the gun is very flexable in different climates..
Barrel could be quite a bit more consistant on its accuracy.
This gun is an excellent choice for the novice and amateur league players... It's price and design are legendary. I would recommend this for the novice paint-baller and perhaps for low end amateur players. But do please buy a barrel for it, forget the expansion chamber they do next to squat.
Got little money buy it. Got lots of money.. buy a shocker impulse or something else maybe even an angel.
I have a Spyder Esprit Red with everything stock because I just got it and a 20oz co2 tank for it
I am a sniper so I would reccomend a larger barrel and a large co2 tank. I would also suggest a silencer or something that will quiet the gun down a bit because it is pretty loud.
This is a gun for both the backyard player and the serious player
The accuracy on the could be better but that is just the stock barrel
This is a great gun for every type of player from the new back yard player to the veteran team member. I have been playing since September of last year and just got the spyder Esprit and love it. I am currently trying out for a team to become a sniper and the gun is working great. The only problem with it is the accuracy with a stock barrel. But that can be fixed with a barrel probably 12 inches. This gun fires fast and everything. This gun specifically suits the aggressive "Trigger Happy" player. One major upgrade besides a longer barrel that would help is an electronic hopper. This gun when it shoots sounds like a real paintball gun it is pretty loud but that is nothing that cant be fixed. I
This gun is great and i suggest that any paintball player that has a budget look at the Esprit. It is a great deal for the money I got mine for $94.95 and a 20oz tank for $16.95 so i didn't spend to much for a great gun.
smart parts all american-black
checkit 15* ASA-black
checkit stick trigger-black
custome products flame drop-black
custom products on/off airport-black
bob long torpedo regulator-black
32* spring kit
extreme rage titanium turbo valve
ripped ventury out of bolt
custom grips, made in my shop class
custom external velocity adjuster, made in shop
base upgrades for budget kid:
barrel (smart parts progressive)
expansion chamber (ACI 6 chamber)
bottomline setup (steel hose, any airport)
low pressure upgrades, like me:
small bore barrel
large hose (steel or macro)
good marker for learning about the mechanics of blowbacks
stock barrel licks
not much else
excelent buy for the price. If you already have a non electro spyder or piranha, than this marker is for you cuz all the parts are transferable. like barrels, asa, airports, velocity adjuster, valve etc...
although if this is yor first spyder or spyder clone than you might want to go with the imagine, or E-99
I had a piranha for a while, then i got a spyder real cheap. Then the electro craze hit my hometown and it was a better idea to get a whole new gun for $90, than an electro trigger frame for $75. All i did was transfer all my previous upgrades from my other markers to my new spyder, did some custom work in school, and i had a sweet GUN.
i opperate around 225psi at a locked fps of 295, it varies 294 - 296, i told you it was sweet.
sweet marker to UPGRADE to, not to start with!
i gave it 9 only cuz nothings perfact

None really... I have used other markers but not like this one
Spyder Esprit, Bottemline/Expansion Chamber, 14" TearDrop, Evolution II
Does not use alot of CO2.
Wont chop many balls.
The barrel could be a bit better
This is a good gun, it will not chop any balls on any mode most of the time. If you get the setup I have for it you will be unstoppable (as long as you have a good strategy of course). I have used this gun for a long time without being dissapointed, balls NEVER break in the barrel (at least it seems that way). Also the gun is very durable and accurate. Not compleatly field strippable because you need a screwdriver to be able to put the ventury bolt back in.
I recommend this gun. I will probably use it a lot longer before I upgrade and get a better one. This is an excellent marker and you will not need to upgrade for a long time. It is even decent to carry into a tournament! 9 out of 10 because it has a crappy stock barrel. 10 out of 10 if you upgrade the barrel.

agitating hopper is a must if you want to use the high speed setting of 3 round burst and full auto, a new bolt and barrel because the stock ones kinda chode. an expansion chamber and bottomline if you want it, I prefer to not have it.
fast ROF, light, easy to clean and stuff.
GET A NEW BARREL AND A NEW BOLT! then your set.
This is the third gun I've gotten and so far I love it. Its light and shoots REALLY fast, well compared to a Stingray II. Pretty accurate even with the stock bolt and barrel, though upgraded ones perform alot better air use and accuracy wise. Plus it has the full auto and 3 round burst if you want to use them, though most courses don't allow it. Its still a great little gun.
its good for anyone whose just starting the sport or has been playing for a while, its pretty cheap for an electric gun and its worth more than every cent.
used only my modified VM-68 until a month ago when I broke down and bought a lighter gun.
Esprit 10" Custom Products 2 piece barrel,32 degrees blow forward block,12volt xbaord rev hopper, Xtreme Enterprise X-10 Drop Forward, ACI gas through foregrip, 47 / 3000 cross fire C/A tank.
right out of the box I would recomend the bottom line. If you have a C02 setup go for the Xchamber helps make the most out of your air and gives a nice look to the gun. I went with the grip because I have no use for the Xchamber but got used to it so.....
next I'd say get yourself a upgraded barrel, then If your planning on taking advantage of the AWESOME trigger response get your self a rev hopper. or you can just open the box and go enjoy this great gun AS IS. But thats not MY style = D
PRICE,QUALITY and upgrades available
A little light....other than that none
Great gun for any caliber of player. Fun to upgrade comes very plain jane so your able to personalize the hell out of it. Although it is still nice enough out of the box for new commers to the sport to enjoy without getting caught up in the never ending modifications available.
If your new or youve been around awhile this gun is WAY worth the dough.
