Stop Bashing Spyders

look for all the people that dont have spyders please dont bash the fact that we have spyders.first of all a lot of you say "or you could have just saved up another 100$ and got this other brand gun". well with that other hundred dollars i could make my gun almost or better than yours. second i got my spyder because i like what i get for the price and a lot of people dont want to spend 4-500 dollars on a better gun when so far from my standpoint my spyder works awesome. so just please stop the little comments about spyders i like mine and i will just keep upgrading it thanks.

Just remind the losers bashing your gun or anybody elses that it's all about the skill, not your gun's price tag.

That's why I'm happy with mine. I had enough cash thanks to a tax refund to buy whatever *mega highend* gun I wanted but the Imagine at it's price point couldn't be beat. There are a couple of useful items on high-end guns like eyes but for the most part you get diminishing returns once you get past $300. It seems like many of the Spyder bashers feel the need to justify purchasing a gun 10x more expensive by putting down people who see the value (price/performance) of E-Spyders. Personally I feel better about eliminating people when shooting a $120 gun then I would with one that cost 10x as much. Would you rather someone blame you or the gun for getting them out?

Thanks! Playing pump with my PGP takes that to a further level. For some reason I tend to get as many eliminations (over a 50% ratio) with it as I do with my Spyder. It's really fun to see BPS maniacs' expressions when they get taken out by a single shooter.

Honestly, just don't worry about what other people think. Having their comments get on your nerves is just going to satisfy them. If you simply ignore them, it'll all die off.

And yes it is great when you get the arrogant kid with the $1000+ marker out with your Spyder or P.O.S. (so they call it). It totally makes me day.

I bash non Spyders!!!

Seriously, I cannot imagine spending hundreds on a single paintball gun. I've always said I'd rather get real firearms (have a few).

I love my spyders, and I plan to get even more spyders in the future. However, I do plan to buy an electro pneumatic when I finish building my Xtra. I'll probably start out a BKO and build it like I did with my Xtra.

I find that 50% of the fun with paintball is tinkering and upgrading and tuning your gun. Sure playing is great, but knowing that you were the person who made it shoot so well, and not some guy behind the counter, makes it that much sweeter.

^^Amen.

I personally have never shot somebody with an Angel or Timmy or some other high-end gun. So I don't know this feeling ya'll are speaking of, but I can bet it's great.

If I had gotten a second job, and spent as much time doing that as I did tinkering with my Imagine and (recently) Trracer, I could have bought me an E-Cocker or some other overpriced weapon of paint. But, this was way more fun, and much more rewarding.

shawn b. - check out the one kit, its by dragun and it turns your sypder into electro-pneu. So that way you can still keep the spyder hotness.

everyone else- personally i like the looks of a spyder, like it looks cool but not over done. I like the more flat metal look than that of a molded timmy or the dm4s....

i don't bash spyders, nor why anyone would, besides their actual flaws. people who just say they suck without any justification are wrong. but i don't think you should jump to conclusions about how high-end guns aren't that "high-end". i recently upgraded from a spyder to a timmy, and the differences are immesurable. (however, i did buy my timmy used, with a very nice package, and for cheap, so I didn't pay a fortune for it).

True outlaner, but one thing I always loved about my old spyders was the fact that even if my gun went down, I was back playing again in like 15 minutes beacause that's all it takes to fully strip, diagnose, and repair almost any spyder problem. That, I like.

I've checked it out before, and I've even played around with a ONE. I, personally, would like to keep my Spyder blow back and just get a BKO. The BKO is much smaller and tighter than a Spyder, and I think I'm about ready for a new gun. Don't get me wrong, I love my Xtra, and I will probably never sell it, it's just that I don't want to turn my gun electro-pneu. I'd much rather buying a gun that is electro-pneu out the box.
