no guys the one isnt a "TES" with the one board, or a "new TES".
the one is like a TES only its not a blowback.. its elecropneumatic, meaning it doesnt need to be cocked, like a bko or a high end marker. you just plug air into it and its ready. there are kits available for spyders and TES's to get them electropneumatic, such as the Zip Kit. it costs around 180 but its a good upgrade. you wouldnt have to worry about uncocking, and all the problems with that. also it reduces the blowback [kick] so it's easier to shoot fast and aim better. its a great upgrade

Get the Imagine. Its cheaper, and has all that less crap that you dont need. OMG DOOD! I have a one kit, and it comes stock at 20 bps! You dont need all of that. You need a gun, barrel ,and hoper. Nothing else.

Why would you want something that was eyes that do jack squat? BEcause they advertise.

Don't waste you money on **** like the evo. Wow, my bolt stops moving so it doesnt chop. Big ****. I dunno, but I could buy an imagine, and reloader for cheaper.

Just what I think. And these are almost the exact words of the loacl proshop. The guy Chris plays for sonic rage, and the kicked the living **** out of dynasty useing mech cockers.

Its a better gun so spend a bit more and get a better gun plus barrel and hopper.

The eyes dont do jack squat. on mine i havent chopped once. well i did chop once because i turned the eyes off.

Don't waste you money on **** like the evo. Wow, my bolt stops moving so it doesnt chop. Big ****. I dunno, but I could buy an imagine, and reloader for cheaper. Evo isnt **** but there are better hoppers yes. why not get the one AND a reloader? reloaders are only like 40-50 bucks more than an egg

Just what I think. And these are almost the exact words of the loacl proshop. The guy Chris plays for sonic rage, and the kicked the living **** out of dynasty useing mech cockers.just because this guy's good at paintball doesnt mean he has the winning opinion on everything

i dont get what everyone sees in dragun...i have one friend that bought a TES and my cousin had "THE ONE"...they both suck...they break all the time, i dont know about my friends TES but i know my cousin took really good care of his gun...the eyes dont do anything either...i personally dont like dragun products...you would be better off with the fenix ACS...I have an evo2 hopper and it works great on my fenix...i have only chopped one time and that was in my back yard when i was on full auto...and the only reason i chopped (i dont have the ACS) is because in full auto there is more co2 going up the feedneck wich slows the feedrate down and can result in a chop...with the ACS you wont have to worry about chopping because the bolt has a spring in it so it will NEVER chop a ball...the evo2 feeds 16bps without zboard and 20-23 with zboard...get the fenix ACS and then with the money that you would be saving from not buying "the one" you can buy a new barrel and a trigger...maybe even more...the fenix ACS is capable of 20bps

simply said..get the fenix ACS, evo2 or halo b(the reloader b isnt much different and is twice as much as an evo2 and 30-40 bucks more than the halo b), a nice barrel, and maybe a few more ups

what do you mean. the eyes didnt work? like they chopped? mine didnt.
you would be better off with the fenix ACS...
if you get a spyder get the imagine. theyre all basically the same, except for the milling.
and the only reason i chopped (i dont have the ACS) is because in full auto there is more co2 going up the feedneck wich slows the feedrate down and can result in a chop...
i dont understand what you mean there but it wont slow down the feedrate of your hopper.
with the ACS you wont have to worry about chopping because the bolt has a spring in it so it will NEVER chop a ball...
hmm.. it seems a few sentences up you said that you chopped. conveniant cause you have a fenix ACS also.

i said i didnt have the ACS...and it does slow down the feedrate because with blowbacks co2 goes up the feedneck wich tries to push the paintballs up...in full auto there is a lot of co2 going up the feedneck wich is trying to push the paintballs the other way thus slowing the feed rate down...not by much but enough to chop and i dont have the ACS...and yea their guns always chopped...we checked to make sure that the eyes were on and everything and they were so i dont know whats up with that

EDIT: and also the imagine and the fenix are alike in many ways but not all...the fenix has a C.A.M.D. (color access mode display) display, the fenix has a different style bolt, a clamping feedneck, an actual regulator and not just an expansion chamber foregrip, and the fenix has a better stock barrel...but all stock barrels suck on lower end guns

i didnt say that there were a lot...but its worth the extra money in my opinion...and for a stock regulator the regulator works really well...the fenix is pretty much an upgraded imagine...not with many ups...just some...stock

plus i think it looks cooler

I agree with KidPaintball to a extent, because it does help to tag out a player with a 15bps paintball gun. The reason I chose a spyder is because it's the cheapest most durrable and reliable paintball gun out there and (the ones I have) dont ring up the paintballs cash regester. However if you have the money and want to blow it on the coolest fastest paint thower, go right ahead I'm not stopping you. I would suggest a old imagine with a palmer regulater and a nice long drop forward W on/off swich. BTW the palmer is the best around if you get the on/off drop you can un-screw the hose and use it for blowing off dust from your computer ro somthing like that, use your imagination maby a potato gun or a pipe bomb launcher there is more then one purpose for a CO2 regulater.

EDIT: you should not need a electronic hopper I dont use one and have only broke one ball (even in full auto).

well... I havent achualy used my regulater for any of those I was just suggesting som things you could use it for. I just thought of another one.. if you are useing air you can go free diving with it for extended times, lol. also a portable air brush, portable air rinch and a portable bike tire pumper I guess you could also use it for regular car tires. that's all I could think of now, maby you can think of others.
