tippman pro carbine- rental gun at my local paintball field. curves balls after about 20 feet.
spyder sonix '05
all stock parts
Stock hopper feeds paintballs fast enough.
Comes with mask, hopper, co2
Little to no chopping
Kind of loud with the stock barrel.
i went paintballing yesterday with this gun, and it was great. the gun didn't chop any paintballs (i shot about 600 paintballs with no chops) . the hopper feeds about 9 or 10 balls per second. i blended in pretty good because the gun is glossy black. the gun is low pressure (i have a 12 oz CO2 canister, and i paintballed for 4 1/2 hours. the canister is almost a fourth full after all that). the barrel is pretty accurate. you only need a new one because the stock is a little loud. and best of all: you get a mask, hopper, and CO2 canister (empty) with the gun. the kit is only $ 100.00 at sportsauthority.com
BUY THIS GUN!!! it is great for the price. i am giving it a 10 because it is a great gun and preforms as well as more expensive pirhanas and tippmans (except for the A-5).

Is a great reliable gun
Nothing to bad
This gun is a fun gun to play wit. for the price its a great gun for beginers and is realy esey to upgrade. i love havin this gun as my back up gun b/c i know its very reliable, and sometimes i give the pilot a break and just pull this gun out for a few games. this gun is fun to play with in woods balls, and if upgraded, can become very fast. i recamend if u get this gun to bye a acs bolt b/c it chops every now and then, but it will never chop wit a acs bolt in it
I highly recamend this gun for someone just starting out, b/c it is pretty good and very cheep
Sonix, 16" J&J Ceramic One Piece Barrel, 20 ounce Co2
A barrel. Thats about it.
Decent rate of fire
Stock barrel kinda' inaccurate but easily fixed
Long trigger pull
Well I have been using this for 3 weeks and really like it. It is pretty small and light which is really great in speedball. I also noticed it has a pretty good rate of fire for a semi-auto. About 6-8 bps. One thing though is that it has a pretty long trigger pull. But if you are like me who go for the one shot kill instead of the spray and pray this is not a problem. It also has nice looks. The curves flow nicely with the gun. But most of all the price is what is good. I got it for $80 at sports authority. I only recommend a new barrel but most stock guns could use that anyway. That's about all there is to say about this gun.
This is a great gun for beginners or tournament players too. Great gun, Good price. Buy it if you want a nice gun to play with. I will give it a ten.
Spyder Sonix 05
12 oz co2
maybe an electric hopper
Easy to maintain
long trigger pull
The gun is pretty cheap to buy. The gun is pretty loud compared to many other guns. The mask that came with it sucked. I like it for it's simplicity. Ive put about 2000 balls through it and it hasn't chopped one yet. The barrel is kinda short. This gun is pretty good for beginners.
Kingman has done it again.
I would get this one. I would recommend this gun to anyone who is new to the sport. It is simple and effective.
There are some problems but they are minor.

Viewloader 200 ball hopper
24 oz tank
Drop forward or coil system
good for beginners
stock barrel sucks
Pressure chamber isn't all that good
This gun is great, it is the Single best marker i have ever used. it just doesn't stop amazing me every time i use it. It is very upgradeable and i suggest you buy it right now. the price is very affordable. If you get a new barrel the chopping and sound will go down and the new drop forward will help balance out the weight
BUY IT NOW!!!!
Believe me, its worth it.
Tippman Custom 96
Spyder Sonix red/black - currently stock
20oz and 12oz co2 tanks
200 round Java hopper
Price, craftsmanship, accuracy, looks, weight
Loud, but fixable
I bought the Sonix kit that has the marker, hopper, 12oz tank (nice to have over a 9oz) and mask. The first thoughts were, this marker looks sweet. It doesn't look cheap at all, even though the whole kit was $100. The craftsmanship is top notch and it looks amazing.
I gassed up and loaded a few balls (viewloader heavy metal) and fired off a couple shots. It's not quiet, I'll say that. Seemed louder than the Victor I've used. Even though I was using cheap paint (crappy paint by most ppl's standards) this marker is surprisingly accurate. I was firing a pretty close group at about 20 yards. A longer barrel and better paint will surely help even more. I pulled the trigger as fast as I can (about 10 bps) and didn't chop any balls and stayed accurate. I also liked how light weight this marker is, even fully loaded with a 20oz it's a very lightweight gun, but not in a cheap way. I haven't gotten a chance to play in a game yet with it, but I know it isn't going to disappoint. I prefer the marker closer to me, so I will be getting a drop forward, and also a new barrel to quieten it up a bit here after Christmas.
I have used extensively a Victor in battle, and have owned people with Tippman customs and even nailed an A5 a few times. So this marker should help me to nab the A5 even better and show them that a great marker doesn't have to cost a lot of money.
Top notch quality at a VERY affordable price. There is no reason not to get this kit. For quality to price ratio, this rates as one the highest in my books.

tear drop barrel
I've been paint balling for just over a year and i just sold my mokal fokusm to a nub that knows nothing wat so ever about paint balling. The gun was accurate and kinda fast but heavy as hell. Every time i went with that gun ma arm was killing me. So just a few weeks ago i tested the Sonix '05 it was amazing. I unloaded a 200 round hopper in less than 25 seconds and its semi-auto. It is a light gun with ok accuracy. So i bought the gun and i went to use it right a way it chopped a bit and it lacked accuracy but that night i went out and bought a teardrop barrel and both the chopping and accuracy was fixed. This gun was almost perfect. I recommend this gun for beginners or pro's.
This gun is great all i have to say is buy it. I would rate this thing an 11 out of 10 if i could. Kingman u've done it again
deadonpaintball bullet short co2 drop
new barrel would be the best
Fast, really cool looking, strong,
and its a really good beginner gun
Its really loud but a new barrel will help with that
Its a good gun, has not failed me and if you are new and paintballing, its a cheap but a really good gun. this is the first gun i bought and its going to be awile before i buy any more markers. this is my opinion and many people disagree with me but to me its a really good gun for the price that it is set at.
I think if you are just starting that the spyder sonix would be a good gun for you, its really cheap but has good quality and its not all high tech .
The spyder sonix strait out the box is an great gun for its price and its sleek design and the gun has a field strip pin so cleaning and fixing your gun is quick and easy. also even with its 9in stock barrel the gun still shoots pretty accurately. (but you will need a better barrel for improved accuracy)
In conclusion this is a hundred dollar gun that can be as good as any high-end if you get the right parts for it
Spyder Sonix (The older version like 02 i think)
Rockin trigger Frame
Rocking Trigger Frame
Mostly how fast i can shoot and accuracy really isnt a problem
it used to chop a lot before i got the ACS Bolt
This gun is a great beginner gun when i first bought it when it first came out. After that i started ssaving my money, and now i can keep up with the people with shockers, ego's, and ions. I upgraded my gun with the ACS Bolt, a Rocking trigger frame, and a Halo B hopper. Now that i have installed these upgrades, this gun is a shooting machine! i shoot loads of balls per second, and i never chop.
If you want to buy this gun, save your money and get the upgrades, believe me, they are worth it.
