Zap Amp Generator: Lower marker then the Electa but was a starter
Spyder Rodeo: About the same with a mechanical trigger instead of the rocking trigger
Spyder Electra ACS 05
Flame drop down with on/off
Halo B with Victory Board
HPA tank. It WILL NOT fun effectivly on Co2 because of freezing. If your buying this marker your buying it for speed, and I found it freezes up right away on Co2
Fast, Easy to use, Sexy
Freezes up with Co2. Needs a spring kit like any spyder.
First thing. You will not be able to get 31pbs out of it like people say. Your fingers can't go that fast and neither can the gun. The trigger is said to be able to put out 35 and the body is said to be able to get 30pbs. But the ACS bolt for the way the gun is made can only get about 25pbs MAX out of it. You do not want to shoot paint that fast anyway so it's nothing to worry about. If you can move your fingers to get 25pbs out of it you'd only want to do that at a tourney to keep people down. You'd want to shoot about 17-20 anywhere else where you'll have no problem with it and it will still outshoot about all your friends topend markers. With my experience with it so far it's a really good marker, I've had no problems with it besides when I used Co2 when it froze and I knew it was going to happen. But HPA on this baby and it's the best bang for your buck you'll find out there. The only thing that could be nicer is that the tournament switch in it could actually be a switch instead of the removable fuse. But that's still nothing to worry about. The gun has semi auto, 3 burst, 6 burst, and full auto and I've only used the 3 and 6 burst and full auto 1 time. You'll love the rocking trigger in semi to much to care about any of the other modes. Buy the gun if your looking for a marker that doesn't need to be mantained all the time and can still outshoot your friends markers. Spyder REALLY had some good ideas when they made this marker.
Diablo Mongoose LCD w/ eyes- Not nearly as fast though!
Tippman 98 custom- only comparison is accuracy.
Smart Parts Ion- very similar
Spyder Electra 05, Revvy, Smart parts tear drop barrel 14"
A fast hopper!!!!
t-board and eyes!
maybe a better reg
lighter bolt even thopugh anti-chop works great
HIgh pressure nitro/ or comp air tank
simple to use
good stock barrel
Doesn't work great on low press
grips on handle are crappy
its a spyder
I bought the spyder electra as my first intro to speed ball and it was a great buy! It basically got me on a team, which I am now switching to an angel speed 06. If i had my way, i would still be shooting the electra lol. In about 5 cases shot with it:
-i chopped maybe 2 balls, which were barrel breaks. had no prob cleaning them.
-Had some probs with the handle, it came loose after some play.
-and it tends to uncock at times while using it with a pmi 68/3000 fiber tank (it is a spyder after all)
besides that its been great to me:
-outshoots my revvy big time
-everything stock on it is pretty good
-2 piece barrel is nice
-rocking trigger kicks butt (really good for beginners learning the way of trigger bounce)
-pretty strudy gun
I recommend this gun to anyone who wants a good speed ball marker but doesnt want to spend too much. Great entry level gun.

spyder electra 2005, freak barrel system, crossfire air system (4000 psi 92 ci) Evolution II (egg).
freakin fast hopper this can go up to30 bps
None, except its kinda loud.
I dont know why this is considered a "Low End" marker........
it can hang with anything ........
its good for intermediate-pro players
I can get it to go 17 balls per second, but my friend got it to 23.
the anti-chop bolt works like a charm, i was at a Young gunz tourny and used this gun,i went through 2 cases of paint without a chop,
This Gun IS tourny legal, i dont know what those other people are smokin.......
I would recommend this gun to anyone i've used it for abouta month, but im gunna use it for a long time.

The first gun i had was a spyder xtra it was not the best.It was hard to shoot it was cheap , but you can do a lot with it.i like the spyder electa acs. It is a good gun. It can shoot 30 bps, it kicks butt.
spyder electra acs w/halo w/rip drive and v 35 board w/16'' freak kit dye stickeys ccm low rise pure energy compresed air tank 3000 psi 48 ci
fast electronic hopper,also i recomend the halo b with ups
1 Super fast
2 Nice looking
4 Cool colors and really nice designs
Some times the bolt will go forward to where you have to recock to shoot.
This is an awsome gun for the price, it shoots super fast. All i have to say is it is one cool gun. It is also very light so in speed-ball it is very easy to run with.Best gun i have had.I was playing a woods ball i ran up on a guy and he didn't even notice. It was the gun i could be so much more quiet because it was so light.
If you want a butt kicking gun buy this one.THERE IS NO DOUBT.

Pmi Pirahana EVO-primary GREAT GUN
2005 spyder Electra ACS
20oz. Co2 pure energy
9 volt viewloader revoloution tripod
-An Evil pipe kit or driver barrel
-The rockin trigger
My friend just bought one of these guns and he was really excited by the rockin trigger frame. he thought the barrel would be crazy accurate. But when i tested it the gun the barrel and frame began to freeze up and after awhile of fast shooting liquid Co2 began dripping out of the porting on the barrel. All so the barrel is not accurate i was shooting from the fifty at a guy in the back and the evil midevil paint i was using hit the bunker in about a 7 foot spread. The bolt after fast firing would sometimes uncock and i would have to re-cock the bolt i checked the Co2 and he had just filled it. I have to say though the rockin trigger is pretty cool but, some thing that fast really needs eyes, not just a little ACS bolt that does reduce some chopping but not all together. On the positive side the gun is nice and light and some what compact. The millings was a little scratched out of the box. Scratches easily.
I would not recomend this gun too anyone. Instead i would suggest the PMI Pirahana EVO. It is only a little more and sometimes you can find it for less.It has eyes and is very fast. But it is your choice. For the price I would want better performance especiallly from kingman.does shoot fast though.

I decided to buy this gun over a WGP Trilogy Pro Autococker and a Smart Parts ION. The first reason was because of the AWESOME Rocking trigger. This trigger can be walked like a dog on a leash, I don't know if I can actually get 30bps but it is DARN fast. The Delrin bolt was also a big selling point. It stops most chops. Keep in mind no bolt stops ALL chops. The 2 piece Aero Twist rifled barrel is quiet but not as accurate as I was hoping. The silver milling on my marker is already schratched up after only a few days of use. It still looks fine. This gun is great, if you're interested GET IT!
Update: The feed neck on this gun is very wobbly with my Halo B on it. I had to wrap the bottom of it with some tape to keep it still. Now it is wobble free. Other than that it is 99.9% perfect. Well that's not perfect but it is great. Thank you.
This gun is great, if you're interested GET IT!

05 Electra ACS
All American 14"
Crossfire Red 68 4500
Egg or better
Barrel (Stock is decent)
HPA if u got it
New drop forward if u use a bigger tank
ACS worked for me
Better milling then older Spyders
Rocker is fun to use
Bad air effenciency
This is the funnest spyder I have ever shot!! Its so fun to use and it does RIP as far as Spyders go. Still uses the same blowback technology as every other Spyder or clone but the rocking trigger makes it a trip(fun) to use. Rocking trigger is easy to get used too and I think its great for beginners to start practicing walking the trigger, although it is much different then regular walking but it keeps them from vibrating their trigger with a single finger.
Its pretty fast and I havent chopped a ball yet. Just make sure the ACS bolt is loosened a bit. May need a force feed type loader to prevent chopping or having the ACS un-cock the gun if a ball doesnt make thru all the way in(Bolt will keep moving since there aren't any eyes, but the ACS will do its job). When I used it with Co2 I suffered a shoot down, after rapid fire, since there isnt any type of reg on it, but swithing to HPA made this marker really consistent and alot quieter.
The Electra is the same as any blowback so it will have that blowback kick that we all "LOVE" so much. Older Spyders are alot less lighter i.e. Imagines and e99s. Best and fastest Spyder I have ever used to date! Nice ROF for any level, less chops if any and a great marker for rec players.
If yer a Spyder fan or just want a great new marker this would be a great choice. If yer an existing Spyder electro type owner just get the ACS bolt and a rocker trigger(with or without Scenariop Dreams board) and your set. Kingman didnt change any of the eternals with this one. Although it isnt high end or new technology the Electra looks great it, shoots great, and finally its so FUN to use... even for the PROS. Yer allowed to put our timmys, Angels, and Dms down to still have fun too u know =) .
Ill give this a 10 for its "class". So dont hate Ion folks before we all boycott you guys for hating on every >300 dollar marker around, LOL. Every forum I go to I see you guys there defending your beloved IONS. Their great markers too but the users are giving us a nasty taste in our mouths, not the marker.

I use an Sypder Electra with rocking trigger and know accesories apart from a vl 12v hopper.
Electric hopper 100%
Quiet, light, good for begginners, intermediate and pros, very durable
In my opinion none.
Fantastic gun, i used to have a smart parts ion, horrible, leaks gas and is very loud. then i found this gun fast firing with up to 30bps, light, quiet and it looks amazing. You can lay down paint like anything, it gives you a clear advantage over the field dominating every game you play. Also its fairly cheap if seen it for $290. the best tourny gun in its price range. It also is well up there with some of the best markers such as the Angel fly and the DYE DMC
100% worth it. Why? because it KICKS ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Spyder Electra ACS 05
Viewloader Revolution / x board
Nitrogen Tank, Electronic Hopper
ACS, push button to switch modes, rocking trigger.
Battery compartment cover
excellent gun for the money, stock barrel worked great for me,..no chops whats so ever. keep in mind even the best guns chop and break balls if you are using cheap or old paint,...thats brittle or dimpled.
no need for a crazy hopper like halo B for over $100 unless you are planning on using it on full auto and want to go through 4000 rounds in a day.
my viewloader revolution worked just fine, and kept up. do you really want to shoot 30 bals per second? i dont think so.
hopper mounts right onto the marker so no need for elbows.
trigger definetly rocks, excellent new concept from spyder.
this model is mmissing the pressure gage, not sure why.
battery compartment cover doesnt tighten all the way and has small spaces, hope dirt and moisture dont get through
Would definetly recommend based on price and quality. If you are looking for a good gun but dont want to spend an arm and a leg.
