i'd still say buy a used highend but if you're going between the 2, i say spyder. they've gotten alot better with their new valve and ram designs
What are you smoking, unless your talking about the very first ego ever made. Not to be a dick or anything but you cant compare an ego (of any year) to an Electra. Buy a used Epiphany if youve got the money. I may have one for you...

An Epiphany is basically an Ion with a couple of upgrades (Metal Body/Frame, Firebolt, Trigger, Etc.) and an Etek is decent gun depending on which one you are talking about.

I had an 09 electra and i wasnt very impressed. Frame holding the asa broke off a dive. It shoots okay and would be possibly an okay backup.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there... your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth.. live it.. love it.. Paintball 4 life..

I use an Ion. I used spyders before, and they were the worst hunks of metal I have ever fired in my life. Please save yourself a headache and get something other than spyder, sorry for all you spyder lovers out there but those guns are crud to me, from my experience.

Also, if your going to get a gun, splurg a little. Get somethign thats going to cost you a little more than what you want to pay so you can avoid shelling out more money to upgrade later.

Dangerous Power G3
Invert Mini
Proto SLG
or ever a PMR are all good guns to start with and you won't really have to upgrade anytime soon.

Edit: I am now taking the liberty of reporting people for tryign to pawn their stuff outside of BST. Come on guys we know the rules.

Your giving up horrible and moving on to average...but hey....its a start right?
Franklyn, im sorry to say but...i cant agree with you this time. ): Electra's are better as a BEGINNER gun. What i think most ppl dont understand about SPYDERS are that they're built for people to understand paintball, learn about guns and their internals, and how to walk the gun etc. Then you move onto a better gun.
