4 piece spring kite for Spyder, from weak, normal, medium strong, to strong. Nice concept and great product for any one who wants to make their Spyder low pressure. However, there is no documentation whatsoever in the kit. There is no way to tell which spring is stronger, even though they were color coded. Multiple phone calls to Shocktech and left two messages and no answer. Finally I got hold of one person, and he told me the following order from weak to strong:

Silver (weakest), Green, Gold, Red (strongest)
Product Availability 
The Shocktech Spyder Spring Set is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Marker Setup: Kingman Spyder Xtra w/:E-Frame & Dye Stickey 3Shocktech Superfly-Long BoltLapco Feed NeckSmart Part's 14" Progresive Barrel
Strengths: Very nice spring kit, could probably fix two guns with one kit.
Weaknesses: None I noticed.
Review: I bought this kit just to have spare spring laying around for my teams guns. Since we all run with spyder guns it works out great. I would recomend this item for anyone who might goto a tourney and play as you have to have your gun chrono perfect. And your spring could wear out on you at just the wrong time. I carry mine in my paintball bag at all times :)
Conclusion: Buy one for a handy spare if you own a spyder and play a lot.

Marker Setup: Spyder Xtra

ShockTech Spring Kit
12oz./16oz. CO2 Tanks
Strengths: - 4 different tensions
- inexpensive
Weaknesses: - none really...it does what it's supposed to
Review: I couldn't really adjust my velocity with the stock Xtra spring...no matter what, the gun would shoot hot. The ShockTech Spring Kit allowed me to use a lighter spring and get my velocity down. It helped to try the different strengths and see what works.

Here are the strenghs:

RED - Heavy
GOLD - Heavy/Medium
GREEN - Medium
SILVER - Light
Conclusion: For $15 it does what it is supposed to...get it if you need it.

Review: For some reason, the stock spyder springs (in my experience) were too hard. Out of the box, the markers would shoot hot (e-99 & xtra used in this example). Spring kit solved that, plus it helped when i did some lp mods on the e-99. the xtra flat out wouldn't shoot below 300 so the stock had to go (would wear down eventually but impatience got the better of me).

Red spring in the e-99 (second hardest spring in kit, just enough to keep the valve open a little longer) & yellow spring in the xtra (softer than stock, just enough to get it around 285 which is the limit at the fields i play at). Which reminds me, i sold the xtra to a coworker & the spring is still in there - Operation: Retrieve Spring will be underway shortly.
Conclusion: Good for those wanting to change out the stock main spring for whatever reason. Would be nice if there were a valve spring or two but i did pick this kit up for $7 so i never regretted it.
