Light Modes are hard to see in daylight
Loud when fired
The Spyder Electra is a awesome gun if you want something affordable. So far I havent chopped a single ball but have woken up my neighbors in the morning when practicing. The rocking trigger frame is great as long as you toggle with the sensitivity a bit. Reaching 30 balls per second is hard to do but getting between 17-25 is no problem at all( with an electric hopper). Like I said above thier aren't to many things wrong with this marker other than the loudness and the Light Modes being a little hard to see in daylight. Otherwise this is a great marker and will make your friends with tippmanns jealous ;p
This gun is great and will not dissapoint ;p

Spyder Fenix, Spyder Imagine, Dragun T.E.S
Some kids spimmy.
Pure energy 68/4500
Halo with Victory Board
Halo b, shorter feed neck, unimount.
Cheap, Looks sick, fairly light for a spyder,
It's a spyder, for the same price u could get an ion.
I currently shoot a dm5 so i'm not going to say that this is the best gun ever like some of the noobs do...
However i did like it alot.
I went down to my pro shop to check it out and it was pretty sick.
The rocking trigger takes getting used to but when you do it's pretty nice.
The body looks like an old 2k2 timmy body with dm5 milling.
The barrel looks like a freak barrel with a teardrop tip.
i'd say spyder has alawsuit coming from the three biggest companies in paintball...
Spyder Electra ACS 05' stock everything. Halo B, Pure Energy 20oz C02 tank
You really want a fast hopper, the halo did great on mine. Going to air would be a great thing because I was out shooting my c02 tank regularly. (see below)
Hard to see light modes on grip in daylight
Well I have been playing paintball for a few months now, and wanted something a little
More then just the Spyder Xtra. I was looking at an AutoCocker and a Smart Parts Ion. The major turn offs with the ion is that a lot of people said it was like holding a toy, and on top of that requires compressed air. (I donít have the money to get a compressed air tank). I also do some playing at non-paintball parks where refilling it would be impossible. The Autococker was really cool, but was a lot of money and also didnít (technically) require Air according to the Worr website but everyone I spoke to who had Autocockers only would run air through them.
So six days before today (May 22, 2005) I found out that Kingman was going to release the Electra ACS 05 with all the trimmings for a spyder. And since I loved my Xtra, I figured it would be an Xtra on steroids! (Same internal mechanisms just with nicer guts, ex: the delrin bolt) And it was, and I love it. One of the main sellers of the gun was that it runs on c02, because I donít have the funds to go to air. I figured I wouldnít get the Ď30 balls per secondí as advertised but hey, itís going to be faster then what I have now.
It really feels solid, the rocking trigger takes some getting used to but once you do, you either hate it or love it, myself I adapted to it just fine, however my wife hates it. I out shot my c02 supply a few times by going really fast. But hey I figured my c02 was going to cause a bottle neck anyway (Get it?? c02 bottle, bottle neck! I am a riot!!!) Anyhow the thing is a tank, I tripped out on the field and hit the concrete and the gun smacked an iron support pole and then landed on the concrete. Oh NO!!!! Not a scratch! And just for grins I took it to the chrono at the park and shot as fast as I could, hey, it worked great!!!
The rechargeable battery is kind of a strength and a weakness, its cool that I can recharge it, but at the same time I wish I could just have 3 9-volt batteries on hand in case of one dries up. But, shooting a case and a half of paint and playing for 4 hours, it didnít indicate the battery was low, so I am optimistic. It charges with the normal charger in 5 hours, and with a rapid charger around 1 hour.
Anyway, the halo hopper fit great on it, and functioned perfectly. I couldnít be happier with the combo of the two. The barrel is was pretty good, I am used to a tear drop, the barrel that came with it did fine. I canít complain, I donít really want to spend more money on it then I have to.
Would I recommend it? Hell Yeah!
Its sleek, its Sexy! It shoots fast! Its strong as hell! Itís a fast shooting marker that runs fine on c02! The grip lights are a little dim in the sun light, but you soon learn that you turn the grip on, and click the button and you are in semi-automatic mode with the safety off. It isnít hard.
I turned some heads on the paintball field with it, and I am proud to use it. I think Kingman did a great job on it.
No, its not an Angel, its not a $1000 marker. Itís an ďIon CompetitorĒ as a friend of mine put it, and as one it does a great job!
You wanna shoot fast & have a metal gun? Want to run c02 because pumping out the cash for air and not having the availability to get compressed air all the time? Then this is a marker you will be happy with, I adore mine.
DIABLO WRATH, HALO B, PURE ENERGY 3000 psi air tank, 14" DYE BARREL
really fast! ACS
I dont know if it is tournament legal, doesn't have LCD screen, shooter counter
The gun is probably one of the best guns ive ever held in my hands. The marker looks beautifull in dark blue. The anti chop bolt provides well no chop. The adjustable trigger makes the 30 bps come true. I highly recommend this gun especially for this price.Got this gun in the mail recently and i am impressed. I love the ACS. It does exactly wat it says. ANTI CHOP. Get a new hopper. THATS ALL U NEED. GREAT GUN for under 200 bucks. BUY IT!
