none that I know of unless you are playing people w/ all e-mags
I bought this gun last year and have loved it ever since. It has not once let me down and me and her have chalked up more kills in one year than my whole time playing (not really but it feels like it). It is great priced and looks cool. All it needs is a new feedneck and you are ready to go. It shoots fast enough for me. I get 5-6 balls a sec but I shoot quick. I am an aggressive hunter and attack fast and with this gun I have mowed down 2-3 guys at a time, some with e-mags. It holds its own quite well.
Get this gun if you don't have a mommy and daddy to buy you an expensive gun. Very strong gun for the price. GET IT. GO SPYDER, SCREW TIPPMAN (except the hoppers)!!!!
Vs 2 Two Piece 12 inch Barrel
Empire Reloader II
Use Compressed Air
very accurate (with my new barrel)
Stock Feed Neck
Not much else
I just played with this set up yesterday, and let me tell you, it was amazing. I never had a misfeed, so i only chopped maybe 2 or 3 in 1000 rounds, but that was only cause i had a little problem with my air. Anyway, we played scenario all day and the gun works. Its durable, the trigger is decent, the grip is comfortable, and it is so upgradeable i had hard time making up my mind. If you dont need to shoot 20 bps or something like that, this is a great gun. I got mine for 70 and it is well worth the money. The stock barrel is ok, but i strongly suggest a new one, and the stock feed neck absolutley sucks. It serves its purpose, but i wish it werent so high profile. Also, my friend has an mr1 so i wanted to be able to get a get as good or even better than his, and i did, and its a great gun to have. i'm not giving up this baby for a long time.
Its a great gun, so ill give it a nine, cause nothings perfect. But i strongly suggest this gun for beginners and intermediates who dont need an electro to be good.

Verry accurate, light, shoots well with out breaks, easy to cleen
I went out to play with my friends right after i bought the gun. I shot about 2 cases of paint (2000) balls with out a single break, then about 4050 balls came my first break. I took it appart to clean it and it was easy to do. Then I got back out there and did not break another ball.
I would buy a 16 inch barrel and get a acs (anti chop system)
This is my friends gun, and hes had it for a couple months, it works well. he had to take it into the shop once cuz something fell out and it wouldn't fire. He likes it, and I think its good too. It has a field strip pin so its easy to maintain too.
Its a really good gun but its not the best, but in its price range its good
And comfortable to hold
Everything is nice about it
Hey guys I got a Spyder Sonix in the mail for $90 and it came with all the equipment I
needed. It's a pretty good gun and the stock barrel isn't so bad. I suggest though that you get a new barrel but all and all this is a very good gun. So if you want to spend little money and get a nice gun this is definetly the gun for you!!!!!
i was running a viewloader genesis before. it was really heavy and really loud.
j&j 14' ceramic
9 oz co2
a longer barrel that's it though. an electric feeder is not necessary. nor is a drop.
Light, easy to maintain, looks good, price, reliable, fast stock trigger.
None what so ever.
I bought this marker because i was looking for something light, cheap and reliable. From the moment i picked it up in the store i knew that this was the next marker for me.
The first time i used it it didn't chop a single ball out of 500 balls. I got through the whole bag of paint without having to refill my 9 oz co2 tank. The stock barrel was kinda loud so i swapped it with my 14' j&j ceramic. This made the marker very quiet.
6 months later im using the same marker and its just as reliable as it was when i bought it. Bottom line is if your a renter and your ready to take the next step, a sonix package is the best way to go. Also if your running a heavy gun that your not enjoying the spyder sonix is also a good choice.
Spyder Sonix with a Smart Parts linear barrel, a Viewloader Revolution, a good expansion chamber and a Psycho Ballistics drop forward with on/off.
A new barrel, electronic hopper, drop forward, expansion chamber and a macro line kit.
Accurate, doesn't chop, light weight and doesn't cost $1000.
Slow r.o.f , long trigger pull and lines leak.
Over all this marker is good but the fact that the rate of fire is slower to a $60 electric marker and the parts are expensive to upgrade it has some weak points. I would definatly change the trigger frame or even buy a new gun to compinsate the price of the trigger frame.
Tippmann 98 custom
16" trueflight barrel
Shocktech SuperFly Bolt
9,12 and 20 oz Co2 tanks
Barrel like A J&J Ceramic 14"
1200 shots for 20oz tank
Trigger Frames feels cheap
Well my bother go this gun for his Birthday. We tried it out worked great, accuracy wasn't to great at all. Never had any problems with the gun. Trigger frame was very cheap compared to the other spyders. But around this gun works great in all weather conditions. This gun would be nice to have the ACS bolt. Just something nice to have.
Please Remember to rate this reveiw. Thanks
Work great for that first timer or as a secondary gun. This gun can be bought for about $65.00
spyder victor II (sucks....badly)
spyder sonix 2005
tac-5 (dont spend $30 more jsut get a sonix its better)
Spyder sonix 05
14" progressive barrel
48ci 3000 psi pure energy hpa tank
-Acurrate with stock barrel Sorta
-Trigger pull a little long
Well i bought this gun about 1 year months ago and when i went out to go test it. I can easily get up to 10 bps no chops ( and im using really cheap paintballs) BE wild striker paintballs $18 for 1000 pballs. The sonix is a great wood ballers gun. I dont recommend this gun for speed ballers a little long trigger pull. The stock barrel is very accurate not all that silent ( i recommend a 14" barrel not to expensive $30 at paintball shops) to reduce the noise and improve the accuracy a lot.
This gun doesn't chop nothing. I recommend it for anyone that wants there own gear.
One of the best looking spiders out there at only $99.99. I mean how better can u get with a accurate,Doesn't hog co2,Need to fix the loudness (unless you don't care). Buy this gun!!! trust me its worth more than it costs performance wise

Pure energy 45cu 3000psi air tank
Veiwloader evolution (egg)
A new barrel
Probabley an e-grip
Maybe an electric loader
New feed neck
Recommend running it on air
Good accuracy for a stock gun
The feed neck is very high witch i hate.
The barrel looks very stubby.
When i first got this gun i wasn't thinking it was going to perform to well, but it suprised me very accurate for stock no chops at high fire rate. i have never chopped any balls with this gun exept for the time my hopper broke open and about 175 of my balls fell on the ground, of course im not going to waste them seeing how cheap i am, and they were stingers so im very cheap, hehehe. anyway i chopped about 13 of them because there was pretty much leaves comming out of my barrel other than that ive never chopped any balls and im suprised because ive only ever run stingers through it, and in the past ive broken millions of them in my previous guns. i don't really see many bad things about this gun.
I would recommend buying this gun, but be propared to upgrade it.
