Good and fast for its price range.gas efficient
Not much problems with it
This was my first guni ever got. its about 60bucks online new. its a really good gun for a beginner. its easy to use and upgrade. its a spyder so its reliable. that only thing u really need is a new barrel.the trigger has kinda long trigger pull but its pretty light.i got about 8-10 bps on it when i was shooting my ffastest. its a great gun for beginners.it is also gas efficient, i got about 700 shots off a 12oz co2 bottle
Its a good gun for its price range and its gas efficient.

16'' smart parts linear barrel
ultra shock orange bolt

Stock barrel is actually decent. Shots pretty fast.
Velocity is very low even when it is turned up. Unbalanced
I bought my gun from badlands paintball as my 4th gun in 2 years which isn't bad but not great because i spent over $400 dollars on different guns. So i did some research on a gun that was in my price range (spyder xtra) and i thought it was going to be a decent gun and i was right it is a very good gun if you are willing to put some money into like a barrel, bolt, hopper, and a compressed air tank. Last week i played at badlands indoor field and bought 1000 paintballs for the day and in total it broke 3 paintballs all day.
This gun is a great gun if you are willing to spend some money.
The air tube helps a lot. It's kinda a heavy gun with the paintballs in it, but the tube takes off the weight of the C02.
Easy to cock
Doesn't use a lot of C02 per shot
None so far
I really like the Xtra, its a good gun. before this I had a Tac 5 Recon which absolutly sucked. I decided it was time for a new gun, so I went out and looked. I went online and found this gun. I had used a friend's Victor, and decided I really liked spyders, so I got one. I've been using it every weekend, Saturday and Sunday, its been shot probably a million times and still nothing is wrong with it, which makes me happy. I would recommend the gun to noobs and amatures alike, pros probably already have better guns than this. My friends are really jealous of my Extra, and say they want one too. So all in all a really good gun.
Very good gun. I like it a lot. Recomennded to noobs and amatures alike. Dont get a Tac 5 whatever you do. get this gun!
16 in truflight barrel
s0 oz co2
bullet 6 step expansion chamber
rocking trigger with acs bolt
viewloader egg 2
a new trigger if you can
gun is good on co2 but an expansion chamer if you want
a new barrel
Good on gas
Cheap in price
Can be unreliable at times,
needs a new barrel,
not much besides that.
i have owned a spyder extra for two years and ive upgraded it about as far as it goes. it is a very good beginner gun and can be turned into a gun for and intermediate to expert player. ive had one problem with the gun. damaged the hp valve and i fixed that in about 5 minutes. if you keep the gun clean and take it apart right things like that wont happen. the stock barrel is a little short and loud, not very accurate either. Once you get into playing more i reccomend upgrading the trigger and getting a loader for the gun. also get an expansion chamber because the fps is everywhere, not very consistant.
This gun is good for beginners, good for experts if upgraded, and is cheap. I stongly reccomend getting a barrel. Begginerse to experts, you should all have fun with this gun.

I had to fix it allot
OK maby i got a bad 1 but when i used this thing it worked ummmmm OK i guess, but i haddent played paintball allot when i used it . the barrel realy sucked but it shot, after i ran out of co2 i unscrewed it and tryed to attach another one ... thats when the problems started!! for some reason it wouldn't recock... so my friend who knows allot more about paintball than i did at that point let me use his tippmann for the nex game while he fixed it .. after the game i came back to find that he had not ben able to fix it. but i played with his gun for the rest of the day,he has like 10. i nevery could fix it so i gave it away. i got a tippmann and that has never broken so i like tippmanns better, but now i have an ion and that is faster but not necessarly better.
Ide get a tippmann!! but they r a little more expensive, but worht it
The Spyder Xtra was my first marker and I love it. Ive been using it for over 8 years and have been kicking much ass with it. I love this marker. I have done a mech trigger job on it and now some people think its auto due to how fast I shoot. Ive used this marker for years with little problems and have had so many parts added that i never want to get rid of it.
- cocking is easier then cocking the shutter
- vert feed
- take apart and put back together in under 1 min (much practice needed)
- huge trigger pull
- chops if you try to shoot real fast
- takes a while to break in the bolt
- sight with beaver tail can break if you bend it.
Get this if you are getting into paintball as a beginner marker!
The Xtra is a very accurate gun but trigger upgrade is needed!! I have only played with an Xtra and if you are a begginer like me this is a starter gun. With a trigger upgrade you will take this gun to the next level. I like the gun alot and i think you definitly will to. So you will get alot of gun for your dollar. Cheap gun i got mine for $89.
This is a good stock gun but if you get a trigger upgrade you will rock the house. Overall i give it a 9.
smart parts ion, tippman custom pro, tippman 98 custom
Smart Parts ION
Dye ul 14 inch 2 piece barrel
CP drop forward

if ur going to keep it: a barrel and/or trigger frame (rocking is real nice)
Stock upgrades (drop, double trigger)
Size (very big vertical)
The Spyder Xtra was my first gun, im currently using a Smart Parts ION. Where i live, EVERY kid had a 98 custom and didn't want to join that club. so i went out to my local sports authority and picked one of these up for $80. I was very surprised at how well it worked out. i played with the gun for an entire year maybe a total of 20 times and only once did i have a problems and it was a little bit of leak. I never did put any upgrades on the gun because i was planing on eventually getting a new one but even with all the stock parts it shot decently straight and held up good. The only down sides to the gun are the trigger and the size. The trigger has to be pulled a long way before the gun shoots, making it hard to shoot fast. Also, when u put a hoper and an extender on top of the gun, it is very very tall. But if ur a beginner or rec player and im guessing anyone buying this gun is, these problems aren't that big of a deal and u'll very well get by. And next to all the other spyder guns (i have played games with kids who had them) mine was always fine while theirs (sonic and victor 2) experienced countless problems. this is the gun to get.
If ur just looking for a low priced beginner gun, this is it. Especially if ur looking to buy a new gun in the future. If ur looking buy just one gun and stick with it, the Tippman is probably a better choice because of it has more upgrades. Im going to give this gun an 8 because there are better mechanical guns out there, but this one is the best for the money
electric trigger, stock , and atleast 16 inch barrel
It looks awesome, it is a great tactical gun
you have to be very careful with the O-rings keep em' oiled
This gun is great. you can get plenty of balls out in time only problem is the way the hopper sits on the gun. It sits very high and sometimes gets in the way. If you could get a shorter or off set hopper adapter you'd be good. a longer barrel woudl make the gun more accurate. It isnt the worlds most accurate gun.
worth the money and very reliable. ive had very few balls bust in the barrel adn only had to change o- rings on it once. This gun is just all around a good gun.
barrel:stock is worthless, get a smarts parts progressive
hopper: the gun cant go fast anyway so dont waste your money on a electric loader
tank: cant run on nitro get c02
Stock drop forward
Cannot walk trigger
overall this gun is good if your are getting your first gun and are a begginner. I advise you to get a n ion instead they are only 100 bucks more but 700 times worth it. Extra is a good gun if you are arent serios about paintball.
this gun is loud. thats all i have to say
accuracy is iffy . not bad but should be upgraded
trigger is too far away from the frame so i cant walk it.
one of the better low end mechanicals
Not bad spyder but i know you can do better
5 out of 10
