Should i get a high pressure nitro system or a low pressure nitro system for my spyder xtra? Also, what is the ideal psi pressure for spyders (for example: 800 psi, 850 psi)? Please help me!!!

Higher pressure=better efficency but louder and some more ball breaks

Low pressure= Inefficent but quiet and less ball breaks

High pressure is cheap to. Around 600PSI is a good area to run it at. Kinda in between.


but if u go LP then u have to get high flow internals. Thats about 100$ in total. Give or take.

Get a HP tank. and the optimal psi for spyders are around 800psi so don't worry if you have to up it a bit once in awhile. It could take the bang

The nice thing about running at 600 like Fiki said is that it can be done with all stock parts except for a spring kit. (And a regulator of course!)

You want a HP tank. Your gun will not be able to recock off a LP tank which most come set at around 450 and you need at least 600 psi with stock internals.Theres really no advantage to a LP tank. A HP tank can be run on any gun. With a LP tank you have a much greater chance of getting shoot down or........um a.......I forgot the other one. Well then whats the point of a buying a LP tank? Well there isnt.
