Rear Bucket changer
Stock class stick feed
Daisy electronic point sight

Cheap, light, low profile, has two brightness levels, can be used with both eyes open
Cheap, not that bright, would probably break if hit
I actually use just the regular Daisy Electronic point sight, pretty similar, the size of the lens makes no difference, in fact, a smaller lens makes a smaller chance of getting hit. Anyway, I like the reflex style because it can be used with both eyes open, and the dot looks like a laser when viewed with your dominant eye. I use this sight on my Stock Class phantom, and it helps with aiming a lot. I can hit a 5" circle at about 75' 70% of the time with the help of this sight and the Phantom's great barrel. The low profile is no problem on my SC feed block, and it is very light. It can be hard to see in bright light, especially if you are in sunlight. If you want, this sight could have the lens covered to prevent damage and be used as an occluded sight. That means that you see the dot with one eye and the target with the other, and your brain just makes the two pictures one.
I recommend this product because it is so cheap. You might as well give it a try.
This sight is great! The dot is so bright so you can tell where your shooting really easily, the battery lasts long (i accidentally left it on for two weeks, and it was still shining at least at half), and I've actually stepped on it twice with boots on and its never broken. and you can get it for $9!
If you want a sight, buy this! $9 for a quality piece of equipment.

-Better than stock sights
-Accurate when adjusted
-Battery cover falls off easily
-Doesn't take much mess up alignment
I'd say if you want to be cheap and buy something that just "works" then this is a great product. I found that it was very accurate when adjusted right, but nearly any rattling or bump will set it off a little bit. As is everything else made by Daisy, it's made mostly of cheap plastic. But it still gets the job done.
Buy if you don' t want to spend extra cash on a nice sight. It'll do what it's made to do. I would still say i'ts merely average, so I'm giving it a 5 out of ten.

16" J&J Ceramic Barrel
Daisy Max View Scope
more to come
Very accurate after calibrated
Uses a watch battery
takes a while to line up if youre new to it
I bought the Daisy Sight about 2 weeks ago and I havent gone without it since. It uses a red light and lines up with the crosshairs on the sight to aim. It takes a while to get used to if youre just starting out with it but after you DO get used to it, it kicks absolute A$$.
Probably the best part about this sight is that it is cheap as hell. I got one for less than $10
Ive heard stories about how hard this thing is to calibrate. Its not that hard if you read the directions first. You just turn the screws it says and it modifies how high or low the scope is sighting. It took me about 35 shots to actually get it right on. Not so bad if you think about it.
The only problem this sight has is that it uses a watch battery. THe batteries last quite a while, but it would be more efficient if it used AA or if the sight came with extra watch batteries.
If you are a kind of sniper or would just like to goof around and use a cool-looking scope, then get this. Its cheap and reliable.

Cheap only $8.84 at Wal-Mart
Can be calibrated
Easy to install and use
Hard to calibrate
Hard to clean
Hard to remember to turn off
This is a good sight. Its easy to install and use. I got mine for only $8.84 at Wal-Mart. Its cheap so if it breaks its only a couple of dolars. You can calibrate it but its hard and takes a while. When I used it I kept forgeting to turn it off so I wasted a lot of batery. Overall this is a good thing if you have a accurate marker and like to snipe.

Very durable, strong, has a battery cover
A little hard to clean, easy to leave on
I take this one over the brass eagle because the daisy one has a battery cover. its strong and durable. a little hard to clean if hit directly. easy to use and sight. unfortunately its easy to leave on or turn on accidentally so i make a habit of taking the battery out after each day of playing. also the batteries are a little expensive but there watch/hearing aid batteries so wht do you expect.
Overall i like this site. buy this one though and not the brass eagle one not because it says brass eagle cause their both made by brass eagle but because of the battery cover. and its really only $9.99

See Paragraph 2 below if your worried about batteries.
Ive used the sight now for a while and at first my only problem was the battery life was mediocre and batteries were about $2 a pop but.......
I just bought a 30 pack of the batteries on EBay from "discountsalerus" for 3.99 "Buy it Now". Heck yeah now that I have so many batteries for so cheap their is no weakness for this sight.
You can get the sight at almost any Walmart for like 10 bucks which makes it very convenient too. Just buy the sight their order the CR2032 batteries from the guy above on EBay and you are set for a long time.
If you have a vertical ball feed you can attach this thing to your ball detent housing easily. Then you just adjust 2 screws for Vert/Horiz adjusting.
nothing really. mostly i just look down the side of my gun to aim. half the time i dont even aim.

COMING SOON: ECLIPSE EBLADE
I had this sight on my old spyder
1) The dot is easy to see because it is bright
2) the dot is projected on a seethrough backgroud, which means no funky occluded sight
3) it can be calibrated, although it is tricky
1)Pain in the butt to calibrate
2) has batteries that will die
3) the mounts will scratch your sight rale unless they are insanely loose when you slide it on
If you think you need a sight, something cheap lilke this one is the way to go.
WHAT I SAY BELOW THIS LINE IS ABOUT SIGHTS IN GENERAL. IT DOES NOT EFFECT MY RATING IN ANY WAY.
I see no use for sights on a paintball gun. It will take you too long to line up the sights for you to do anything. If you practice a little, you can shoot something without aiming at all, you just have to practice. What i do is i will sit in a chair and pick something on a wall, say a light switch that i want to aim at. Hold the gun at eye level but to the side. Point it where you this it would be shooting the light switch, then shift your head and look from behind the gun. If you keep doing this and make it come naturally, you will be able to do this with no problem. It will help immensly in speedball, by making you have to expose less of your body.
This method is really effective, because after a little while i was able to shoot a can from 20 yards by just pointing the gun, not aiming. After a while you can do hip shots to and impress your friends.
Anyways, thats my little schpeel. If you think that you need a sight, then i would go with this is you have a side feed(duh). If you put it on a stock spyder sight rail, the circle you look through is above the feed tube.
Spyder TL, bottom line, 12oz (all that matters is the bottom line really).
its a sight that when u line it up it actually is aimed there every time. Very inexpensive so if u break one its only $9.99
well nothing really its not like im going to go out and by an ADT $200 sight that Delta force uses
Well people want to know how this product is used. Well u need a feed that doesnt get in ur sight rail. and it must be at least end width of your thumb up above the gun if u got a diaginol feed.then you put the sight one and turn it on. then u line up the crosshair in the plexi glass forend and the red dot and thats the aimming part. the red dot is projected from behind and the red dot reflect off and into ur eye looking like its on the target down range really cool. Its only 9.99 at Wally MArt
