Close but not quite, the balanced valve has compressed air on both sides of the poppit opposed to only on the front side of the gun. This effectively decreases the amount of force the striker has to overcome to open the valve which allows for a smaller/lighter striker and less main spring tension.
It's very similar in design to the Empire poppit for 2nd/3rd gen. Intimidators, the only difference is the Kingman one works.
In any case, to get back to the OP's question
I like the G3 Balance Valve much better, though the VS2/3 and RSX are heavier than the Electra and such
If you can get G3 internals (The valve, striker, and spring), and put them in a lighter Spyder, then you'll be golden

So I just bought a used 05 spyder electra acs. It has a regular 9v in it and i was wondering if it needed a spyder rechargeable one. I have seen people say it does and people say it is doesn't matter. So I just want to know. Also where would I get one I cant find them for sale anywhere?
So I am probably sounding like an idiot here but I accidentally pulled the pin out of the back of my 05 electra and shot the innards all over my living room. I think I found them all but I have no clue how to get it back together. can someone please like make a video or just describe it in...
