well i am a spyder man myself. but if you are choosing between a m98 and a sonix i would go with the 98. if you get a slightly better spyder i would go with it. but m98 and spyders are great guns and alot of people know how to work on them so you should have no problem if they mess up.

I personally don't like spyders too much so I am biased towards Model 98's. I used to be rough, real rough with mine and it NEVER had a problem.

Try posting this in the Model 98 forum. People will jump all over it. You will get replies here, but I think you SHOULD get a ton of replies in the Model 98 forum.

Hope this helps.

go with the trusty tippamnn because out of 4000 balls i played with and someone of them where one of the worst havent busted a ball yet.
Also where are you going to get the gun at Evil-Mart?????
If you are planning to get the sonix there i wouldnt!!
Then gu has alot of problems!!!
So go with the Tippmann CUstom 98!

Yeh i lend my tippy out to friends when they wana play. IT never breaks balls, and its great on c02. We roughed it up a bit. ITs hard as a rock. ITs got one of the lightest mechanical triggers. Like 3lb or sumtin and with a double trigger or RT u can get some mad bps. They aint much longer then spyders, and my friend has gone thru 2compacts and 1shutter and finally saw the light. Spyders suck, and everybody i know hates them. They break balls, arent accurate, theire expan chambers are plain jokes. And theres no point in "tricking" it out cus it will suck no matter what. MY opinion is all from expierence. I highly recommend a tippy98, they will actually LAST when u play.

Go with the tippmann its a very nice gun and is also very easy to upgrade i still have my tippmann and it is still a great gun i actually just got done doing a trigger job on mine and it has a lighter pull than my friends spyder plus his spyder sucks breaks paint and is very unaccurate and like waka waka said there expansion chambers are jokes

Ur the retard. The first gun ive ever owned was a spyder compact. I bought it off a friend for lie 40$. ITs plain ****. MY other friend with the shutter, and welll over 100$ in upgrades and it still sucked. ITs VERY unlikely u can get 10bps with ure 5inch long trigger pull. And actually i do know what im talkn about
