Has anyone had a chance to compare the two? I am wanting a purely mechanical Spyder or something similar that I plan to throw a barrel, on/off ASA, and a few other odd things on. I don't want to get into replacing internals. The look of the '09 appeals to me more, but is the difference in the supposedly new valve on the '12 a significant improvement? I had also considered Azodin. I see mixed reviews on everything, so nothing is a slam-dunk. I just want a marker to play rec with every once in a while.
