12" aluminum barrel,
Regulator with gauge,
tournament velocity adjuster,
sight rail with beavertail,
2-finger double trigger,
bottom line, drop forward,
Works with Co2 or compressed air.
The Kingman Spyder Rodeo is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Longer Barrel(The stock barrel will work for a while but get a longer barrel to increse acuracy).
Easy to Clean
I started out playing on a friends 98 custom, and i soon found that i wanted a marker that could be bought with many of the upgrades that the 98 came without. I think that the rodeo is a great marker for woodsball and is very good with a long barrel. A new bolt mabye a good idea to. I would recomend this gun to anyone. The only problem is that the orings wear out fast on the rciever and need to be replaced often. But it isn't a problem because I can field strip the gun easily within 5 minutes. This is one of the few quality spyder markers out there. This and the Mr's are the only guns I would ever recommend to paintball players. This is a gtreat marker.
Get this marker if you like playing woodsball and you want a reliable marker.
Aluminum bolt (wears out internals)
Beaver tail is kind of sharp and flimsy
this gun is amazing! i used to only use electro guns but i have now changed my mind this gun shoots almost as fast, and is way more reliable... no more pesky 9v batteries to carry around, and no switch, trigger, and circuit board problems... i love this gun and its only 100$ brand new!! i couldn't believe i paid that little for this gun. It has very consistent shots and accuracy, it hardly uses any air, and it never chops.
recommended paint: draxxus dusk, super swirl, big ball, almost anything... never chops
I give this gun a 9 out of 10 because the feedneck it comes with is a pain to use or replace but overall it is the best gun for the money you pay.
SPYDER XTRA ,ELECTRA ,VICTOR , BT4 COMBAT VL TRITON II
12oz PURE ENERGY TANK
A 18'' BARREL CAN WORK DANM RIGHT
Affordable ,very accuracy durable easy to repair and clean
This is one of the best guns i ever tested with a 21'' barrel and a sight can work very well like a sniper gun or just spread balls all over the place because this goddamn gun is ...fast... very fast...
is a nice gun with the mate finish for those who like woodsball
is easy to clean and disarm thanks to its fast release pin
If you are medium or you want to start with this sport this is one of the most recomendable cuz is easy to use and clean if you have around 160 bucks buy it you'll be glad with your exellent gun

I got the Rodeo for my girlfriend. I have owned Spyder before and they are a great product. If you don't want an electronic gun, get this one! It is a nice gun. I think it is great looking and solid. I did order a Smart Parts Teardrop barrel for it (looks awesome on the gun) ad the stock one isn't the best. This gun shoots well. I have never chopped a ball with it. It is not a fast shooting gun, but still fun to use. I say regulator (possibly) as a weakness cause I am torn on it. I think it does its job and is good (cause the gun does shoot accurate), however, mine seems to be very inconsistent with holding the psi steady. Still, I have never had a problem with this gun. Your going to want to get a new feedneck too. It seems to me that most guns have bad stock feednecks. I like this gun so much I have an interest to maybe upgrade it.
I love this gun. It does awesome for my girlfriend and even when I use it. I run Smart Parts gun and still have fun using this gun if that says anything. I got mine for $75. WELL worth it!! I will give it a 9 cause not every gun is perfect. I wish I could do 9.5!
ESP Trigger, ACS Bolt, some sort of locking feedneck, and a barrel (Stock is fine, but aftermarket barrels are better)
Built-In Regulator, Good Stock Barrel
VA is not threaded, so it doesn't take threaded regs without a different VA.
I've used this gun several times and it's always been a good gun. Great shooting, never fails, and since I've put in the ACS bolt, it's only chopped a couple paintballs out of probably 5 cases, and that's all been cheap "AffordaBall" paint. Overall I would say this gun's a good gun for the money, and worth the extra money stuck into it to make it shoot slightly faster and more accurately. I use it as my primary gun most of the time, either my Rodeo, my A-5 or my Kingman Hammer are my main battle weapons.
Buy this gun if you're looking for a good gun to tinker with or for a good backup gun, with a little modification this gun can keep pace with much more expensive markers!

worrgames trilogy pro
black richochet hopper
autococker big daddy barrel

Fast for a mechanical marker
The pressure Guage
I love this gun!!! I think one of the best mechanical guns out there. It is completely dependable. I like as much as my WGP Pro. i have a 5 person team 2 of my buddys use these for woods ball. I switch with them sometimes and this gun is so good for its price. tehy got for 107$ at kmart. Like for teh price and how durable it is i say it is a must buy. this gun owns and u can drop in water n jus keep going. Try that with the electric guns. I prefer this gun Oon the fact that it is extremely accurate with a new barrel. The stock 1 is accurate. it is fast for a mechanical gun. It take 2 minutes to clean. i am completely shhocked and pleased with spyders product. This is amazing gun for any one who plays senerio games and woods ball. It is great fro beginners. and i say BUY!
Spyder TL-R (Rodeo is much better)
Piranha R-6 (Rodeo is SO much better)
Stock Spyder Rodeo, 20 oz. Pure Energy CO2, and 12V Revolution with X-board
Electronic Hopper would be a plus, as well as an electronic trigger frame.
Accuracy and dependablity
Can only pull the trigger so fast
I purchased this marker nearly a year ago, and it has been solid. I've shot close to 15,000 shots with some low-quality paint with this gun, and I've only chopped one ball (when I was using a VL200, not an electric hopper). Since I've purchased the marker, I have not had to disassemble it because of a malfunction once. It has never even malfunctioned. However, one guy I play with also purchased a Rodeo and has had nothing but problems with it. It could be random chance that mine worked great and the other guys worked so poorly (considering we both purchased our guns from the same store on the same day), but I still feel the Rodeo is a terrific marker. For me, as far as out-of-the box guns go, the Rodeo is a very impressive model. Even though I just purchased a Promaster, I wouldn't even fathom getting rid of this gun.
If possible, I'd rate it a 9.5 because it is a very durable and dependable gun.
I highly recommend this marker, especially for those just beginning to play the sport. It is a very durable gun.

Will make you buy a better gun
Teach you to clean your gun
Upgrades are costly
Chops paint frequently
This was the first paintball gun I ever bought, and believe me, it was an adventure.
Never at one time was my gun fully operable and reliable. I spend hundreds of dollars on upgrades just to make this gun passable on the field.
It chops paint frequently, the springs are not hard enough to shoot at 300 fps out of the box.
The gun constantly needs O-ring lubricating and replacements.
Chopping paint is a DISASTER. You have to rip apart the bolt and clean the entire bold, barrell, and hopper feed system in order for it to shoot correction.
Will ALWAYS malfunction if weather is not perfect (worse in colder weather).
In order for this gun to operate properly, you must have it cleaner than a baby's butt at all times, make sure the weather is around 65-75 degrees, and have a squeegie on hand for barell cleaning WHEN you chop a ball.
This gun tested my patience, but I did learn something from my experience with the Rodeo and Dual-Chamber Spyder guns in general: SPEND THE MONEY ON A BETTER GUN!
Preferably a Tippmann, or an Ion.
This gun will teach to how to take care of your marker, but I do not recommend purchasing one. If you are new to paintball, buy a Tippmann 98 Custom. And I am not the biggest fan of Tippmann markers, but my brother's tippmann rarely chopped paint and was reliable on the field.
Do yourself a favor, do not put yourself through the torture!

20 oz CO2 tank
32 degrees remote line w/slide check
Nothing that you absolutely need right away, but almost all stock markers need a new barrel.
-Built in expansion chamber, regulator, pressure gauge, and drop forward
-Beaver-rail in way of bolt(can remove)
***All Of My Reviews Are Edited And Re-Edited***
I bought this gun used from my cousin. I don't know how long he had it or what he did to it. This gun hits an 18" circle target from about 50 feet away. I got the same accuracy from the stock barrel as i had with an old 12" J&J ceramic barrel i used to have. I have shot many thousands of paintballs, they were White Box Paint and Draxxus Midnight. Read my review on the Midnight
This gun is awesome, especially with all the stock upgrades. I was so pleased with it, i am giving it a...
