if you can get a free spyder extra go for it...that way you can get better **** for it..depending on if ur playing rec ball or tournaments...id def get a better barrel 14" (J&J ceramic, Custom products one piece, dye boomstick) it all depends on ur price range...get an e trigger if the xtra dont have one and a e hopper and you should be fine for now
get the free xtra, and buy an imagine, and us ethe xtra for backup. I was suprised with the quailty of the 05 imagine, and how i could adjust teh trigger to almost nothing. THe new imagine IMO is one of the better spyders out right now, and for only 108, its a huge bargain
I'm gonna have to jump on the band wagon and tell you to go with the xtra. I had one for a while and it served it's purpose very well. Easy to clean and maintain. Eventually you will need to upgrade but use that xtra for a long while and when you have plenty of experiance you can move up. Good luck with whatever you get.
