Tippman 98 custom, tippan pro carbine, Spyder x, automag.
dye excel barrel, electronic trigger
barrel, electronic trigger
Accurate, very powerful.
Very slow and long trigger system.
I play lots of woodsball and it performs well all the time. It is the best semi auto i've ever used. Very reliable and sturdy. You have to be careful when you play speed ball, i like puttting on the stock barrel for short distance. I would highly sugest this for intermediate to advanced players. A must try gun!
It is a very cheeap gun for what you get. If you want great perfomance and great results, get this sweet gun.
Most deffinitly get an elec. trigger, and a barrell
Very accurate,durable,and powerful,good looks too, the gun is great for all players
I have found one the only thing is the trigger
The only bad thing i noticed is the long trigger action wich can be a bad thing but no big deal!! if you are a regular player you would love this gun i am used to shooting auto mags and tipmans but this spyder is off the chain im am not finished hoppin this gun up yet but hopefully soon.
Very good gun! I have had spyders before but none up to this scale
Ive used a pmi and the kingman spyder tl-r shoots streghter and faster than it.
Streight shooting and balls never break in the gun.
I think that all starters that like spyders should get this gun. Its cheap and comes with everything that you need to get started. (ecept for paintballs) I shot about 1500 balls out of it and none broke so far. i bought this gun for 189.99 dolars at dicks sporting good.My freind has a tippman 98 custom and this gun shoot just as fast as it.
I think that this gun is good for starting of with .Its acurate and balls dont break in it.

Squigee in kit did not fit in barrel
This is an excellent gun for any player wether begginer or or you play a lot. This gun is very cheap for what you get in it. You get every thing u need to start off except for paint, air, and a place to shoot it. Although my gun shot far it was no match for my friends tippmna w/t a flattline. So i bought the boomstick(amazing) and once i started i couldnt stop with the upgrades. I basically cant buy any more. Now in some speed ball games im takin out kids shootin 30 balls a second on a $1200 gun with a $400(with all the upgrades) shootin 16 balls a second.
My firends said i shoulda bought another gun because they all bought autocockers. They didnt say that to me after that last game though!
Overall this is an amazing gun. If you have the money buy the more expensive ones but if ur cheap like me buy this gun.
I give it a 9 because it needs some upgrades to become a ten.
The TL-R has proved to me that it is an excellent marker for the price. I have broken not one ball in it out of probably 3000-4000 shots, and have only once needed to re-cock the gun during play. Spyder has once again shown that they can make a competitive for a much cheaper price than it's competitors. Also, I can hardly believe how durable this marker is, I've dropped it on pavement, stepped on it, thrown it into bunkers, and pretty much anything you could imagine and nothing has failed to break or even give signs of malfunctioning. The only thing that could be improved is the speed of the gun which could probably be improved with better trigger pull.
Buy this marker. It is clearly worth the price, I've played with 98c's and this gun keeps up no problem. Between a stock 98c, and this marker, personally I would choose this gun, with parts on a 98c, well thats another story. Overall an excellent marker worth more than its price.
spyder tl-r with nyte stikk, c.a.m.d. electronic trigger, and halo b
electronic trigger new barrel and electronic hopper
The spyder tl-r is like the spyder tl-x except better. when i went paintblalling it was raining and muddy but the gun still worked fine. Its been stepped on and is still good its really durable. This gun has really good accuracy. From 150'away i was hitting a 1'x1' target 8 out of 10 times. It has good distance and shoots straight most of the time.
I would recommend the spyder tl-r for begginners and even intermediate players. Im giving this gun a 10 out of 10.

The key strenghts are accuracy and power.
The weakness is a very slow shooting gun
The Spyder TL-R is a very good gun. Is very powerful, accurate and is very durable. Not a gun for beginners lots of fun. A gun to use at mountains fields courses. Have the advantages over many players when using this gun. I recommend this gun to intermediate and advanced players who want to play and to win.
I really enjoy this gun. Its durable and a lot of fun to use.
