This is such a great idea! I wish that we had the player base for a tournament like this in the Northeast. Heck I'd like to just have a mech/pump day at a local field.

This is awesome. It's one of those ideas that I can't believe people are not doing already.

I also thought no Tippmann's... That's weird. But when I thought about it, you would probably get Tippmann's with low pressure kits and so upgraded that it wouldn't be close to a "cheap gun".

Wacky Warriors West in St. Louis MO is putting on a new sort of mechanical event. In the spirit of the old Spyder Cup, it's a cash prize 3v3 event, except now its opened up to more than just Spyders, but any Mech Stacked Tube Blowbacks (STBBs). Azodins, Piranhas, and any other clone of those types are allowed, as long as they're mech of course. If you're not sure, ask below and I'll tell you if it qualifies or not!

CASH PRIZES

1st Place - $1000.00 Guaranteed
2nd Place- minimum $300, max of $600 if event sells out
3rd Place- minimum $150, max of $300 if event sells out

+ Gear giveaways at the event!

To register your squad, hit up Wacky Warriors on FB or email.

Tippmanns are kinda a ‘cop out’ gun to me. Too easy. Too boring. Not in the spirit of the Spyder cup. It takes a bit more skill and patience to get the best performance out of a STBB.

So yeah, no tippys.

I spent an uncomfortable amount of my free time in the spyder/kingman and voided warranty forums back in 2004-2006, and I can't recall seeing any heavily upgraded mech spyders. LOTS of stupidly modified electro spyders that could very much keep up with higher end guns, but I'm drawing a blank on anyone going all out on a mod'ed mech spyder. Mech just wasn't really a thing people sought at the time. Mech cockers were fading in favor of eblades, and mags were starting to become pretty rare to see. Outside of scenario play, it was all electro.

All that said, now I'm tempted to pick up another E99-era spyder and make a sleeper mech.

I made this one. It's an Icon Z (32 Degrees badged mech E99). Upgraded the feedneck, and deleted stock drop.

Very nice. Strong nostalgia right there. There were some spyders with drilled out VA's, low pressure valve and spring setups, regulators, etc. Obviously not pertinent to this mech discussion, but some people were even drilling eye holes and putting in new boards.


This is unfortunately the only picture I can find of my E99. ACP trigger and dye stickies pictured along with some super cool metal spikes. Also had ACP blue bolt, polished/trimmed/cupped rammer, upgraded valve with low pressure springs, drilled out VA and expansion chamber, macdev reg, clamping feedneck, unimount, J&J barrel kit. I spent way too much money on the damn thing before realizing I should just buy a new gun.

i couldn't tell you if the ones i saw were mech or not, id lean towards not. bu i have definitely seen aka parts for spyders.

if any one is looking for spyder barrels ive seen Dye UL backs for them cheap on ebay and amazon recently

HAHA this is awesome and I wish I could play it! Yet it kinda feels like we can't get new players into paintball so we're just getting old players to look like they're new players.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
