Smile Spyder fenix review

I don't get why people say the spyder fenix is bad. Can someone tell me y? I think the gun is great. The only thing I would upgrade is the barrel. The stock barrel is still OK but not great. DO NOT USE C02!!! C02 broke my gun but got it fixed at tanks paintball for $15. There are 3 modes semi,psp,and memilinium. The gun is kinda light.
My set up-
Fenix
Kingman fasta
48/3000 ninja
Cp 1 piece 12 in barrel

People hate on Spyders and Tippmanns in general.

I own a 2012 fenix and it's a good gun, I wouldn't call it great though. How did CO2 break your fenix? The only thing CO2 could damage on the fenix is the o-rings and those are cheaply replaceable.

The Fenix was my first speedball gun, it's not a bad gun at all. I had it for 1 year, and I lend it to my lil cousin and never got it back. He still uses it till to this day.

You air up your marker, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed that test, that your girlfriend broke up with you, 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.. play it.. Paintball.

98% percent of ballers wipe, if your part of the 2% that has some sense of honor add this to your sig

Hmm, my fenix came with steel braided hose, macrolines are not meant to be used with CO2.

I love my Fenix although I did make the mistake of using CO2 for the first couple times. For the price I would say it is a GREAT beginners marker. I myself have a 14" CP barrel and Halo Too hopper. Its easy to navigate with the modes. Also maintenance on the marker is so simple and easy. Love it. I almost don't want it to be my back up ):

There is nothing wrong with using CO2 on a spyder.

Haha theres nothing wrong with shooting HPA through your Spyder. As long as you have an awesome regulator (dual regs in my opinion) Co2 is the way to go when using a Spyder. They are hella efficient.
