Post a thing about spyders.

i posted in the spyder forum, to see if the people were happy because many have said that spyders are not good

all 100% said they liked their spyders so this has put to rest the aguement that spyders are not worth the money...

what do you say about that Python

Exclamation Spyder's

A good thing about the spyder is that you dont have to pull the trigger all the way down. , it's reliable! !

I've owned a spyder for a while (6 months now I think) and not ONCE has it properly worked for me. so to me I'd rather shoot a spyder clone then an actual spyder. glad I'm gettin it to fatty that thing is a pos.

Just a little statement... If you posted it in the spyder thread all of the owners are going to say they are happy... I could have a talon, and you could post somthing about it... of coarse im going to say I like it if its my only gun....

Thats not what Im saying.... Im saying if you own the gun, and have never had any other experience of coarse you are going to like that gun.... What do you have to compare it to? ( Im not trying to sound mean or anything... but thats just the way I see it... I see where you are comming from... thats the exact same reason everyone hates B.E. )

I had my spyder for a year and a half. It worked great while i had it. But then i got my cocker After i had my spyder for about a year. It got to the pit I had no need forit. the cocker was better. It was better in almost everyway, it felt batter, it looked better, it was just better. The cars in my family are all good cars, and people that see them on the street think they are good, but then havent actually driven them. my car is a chrystler seabring limited. Most people thnk it is a nice car and it is. But then i will get in my stepmoms lexus, and it makes the chrystler seem like a talon. They are both cars, both have engines, and both work (except when mine gets stuck in 2nd cuz the damn auto-clutch never works). But im usually only in there when Im with the family. But then say my father and I got paintballing, we take his car. he has a porsche boxter. That car makes the lexus feel like a spyder, but they all work the same way and do the same thing. My dads car would be my cocker, and then there are better cars out there that could be compared to a timmy or an angel. Eventhough all guns are different and do the same thing, sometimes the way you biuld them dictates how they work, and eventually your upgrades wont matter, because you've topped out that guns performance, and it cant get any better.

I had my spyder TL for a a year and a half and I REALLY liked it. It was my first marker and it rocked. Never had a problem and fel good. But then I got my cocker and loved that more. It just was an overall better marker. Now I have my Angel and well I like it the best...

I can't see how people can bag on Spyders so much. They really aren't that bad. I shot a TL+ with a few upgrades for a little more than a year until I sold it to get my Bob Long Autococker. For the price, they really are good guns. Saying they suck compared to Cockers and Mags and so on is like apples and oranges. They are two completely different classes of markers. As long as we're using the car bit, here is my version of markers to cars:

Spyder: Ford Escort (not too flashy but gets the job done)
Mag: Eagle Talon (flashy, fast, not too expensive)
Cocker: tricked out GTO (customized to hell, a mechanical beast)
Angel: F1 race car (fast, fast, fast)

If you look at it this way, the Spyder really is a fine marker. It just can't compete with the high end markers in terms of quality, price, and performance and it wasn't meant to. It's an entry level marker designed to be cheap and get the job done. This it does rather well.

great comparison but 1 thing needs to be changed

spyders and tippmanns can be upgraded to kick angel guns

how is it that upgrading the gun is going to make it kick an angels ***? If the player sucks then the gun will suck. That was got to be the most ignorant statement anyone can make. "X gun can be upgraded to be better than Y gun" you just admitted that y is better, and if your upgrading x, you could also upgrade y. So if y is better than x, and upgraded y will be better than and upgraded x.
