Just can't get down with em- especially the clown colored ones. Those are for DB's. look at the majority of pros: no clown guns. And I'm really sorry but if your gun(not you personally John) doesn't have a mark on it - ya ain't playing with it- your just showing off and braggarts get bonus balled.

While it may not have the flowing lines of say Dye or some high ends I actually like the clean look of it. From all the friends who have the held the GT or played with it have commented how awesome they feel in the hands. While I would love to see them take it to the next level aesthetically I think how a marker performs and feels in the hand are far more important than how it looks.

As MacDev continues to grow in popularity and market share I truly believe that they will take this issue and run with it! I'm really interested to see what MacDev does with the rumored new Cyborg.

You must not have used the three I mentioned, they lack the function too..

So you're saying a high-end Spyder wouldn't have eyes?

"High End Spyder" is an oxymoron.

Exactly- glad you got the point. But stack tubes are Spyder derivatives. No matter how you look at it.

An oxymoron (plural oxymora or oxymorons) (from Greek ὀξύμωρον, "sharp dull") is a figure of speech that combines contradictory terms. Oxymora appear in a variety of contexts, including inadvertent errors such as ground pilot and literary oxymorons crafted to reveal a paradox.

I don't recall bob long having a stack tube before spyders very first run of guns. If so then the Spyder is a low end bob long- ying yang right??

Bob started with a custom spyder millennium . The original intimdator was made from spyder blanks, hence the extension cosmetic block to extend the lower tube to cover the sleeves.

That is simply not true. Spyders and other blowbacks predated Bob's guns.

No, that didn't happen either.

Ugh- finally a historian. I'm sure about angel history but not bob long guns ....I'm sure everyone that took issue with my Spyder / bob long crack is a pe shooter or bl shooter. Take bets?? Lol

Oh and I have a pe gun so I'm won the bandwagon . Lmfao

Different strokes for different folks. I think MacDev guns look nice and besides you thinking it is ugly, they get ridiculously high praise.
