Thumbs up Spyder upgrades?

I have been paintballing with friends a few years now but never really messed with my gun, I want some good upgrades.

I currently have a Spyder Xtra with a 16in smart parts tear drop barrel.

What else should I do and why?

Thank you

-Darrell

ive heard from a couple of sources that any barrel above 14 inches creates more turbulence and is less accurate. Don't get a 21 in barrel. Just get and esp frame and a nice hopper

uhhh an ESP frame is an electric frame or an e-grip that makes the trigger pull a hella lot lighter... and sexier and jus plain nicer... i dunno how much they run for maybe around 80? i dunnno a reg makes ur co2/nitro shoot more consistent by only letting out wat u need and not more or less ittakes a way the snowo r watever that white **** is after u shoot
hope i helped and a 21 in barrel is jus fugly and gay and watever and 16 in sry to say is still a bit longer than needed 12-14 great

A paintball only needs 8-10" in which to accelerate. People go with longer versions so that they can push into inflateable bunkers. 14" is a pretty standard length that allows you to push in, but isn't overly long. 21" is excessive.

Good call chief. I hail you a rep point for that word.

Negative rep points for all you kiddies who took that seriously.

an expansion chamber helps the liquid co2 to expand into a gas, while the regulator regulates how much of the gas goes into your gun
