Not necessarily. Spyders may not be highly thought of, but they work and they work well for what they do.

i dont know why there is so much smack talking about other guns such as the spyder. do you happen to know the cheapest made gun? (price to make) tippman is the cheapest. its like $12 - $25 to manufacture 1 gun. besides its nobodys business who does what with their marker. its all about having fun. i HAD a spyder when they first came out and it was just as accurate as my cocker. oh back in the day brass eagle used to be awesome!

Spyders arent turds. Spyders are reliable, tough, and take a beating. they are the best for there price, in my opininon.

Although I dont see the point of a spyder longbow. Any gun can have a Qloader put on it and you have clearence for your sight.

Really? A 12x12" sheet of aluminum (plain, no texture), only 0.08" thick, is almost $20. Now, to get a solid BLOCK of aluminum to cut a 98 or A-5 out of, it would cost way more than $12 to $25. And then there's processing costs, and making a profit off of them.

Ive been looking for this, and thus far its only the PVC "magazines" they are not true longbow in the respect you cant change them easily.

I am working on a design for such a item targeted at offsets, but its slow going. Untill, your imagination is your most potent weapon.

You are entitled to your opinion...But EVERY Spyder I have ever chronographed or seen HAS to have a new spring put in it. That's a good many Spyders too. Also, they just seem to break a lot...Screws always falling out, especially the feedneck messing up, and then the O-rings blow all the time. That is just my personal experience though. Maybe you have had all good experiences. With Tippmanns, if it isn't working, put 3 drops of transmission fluid in the ASA hole. Shoot it a few times and it will work 95% of the time.

tranny fluid isnt good to put in there since it eats away at rubber.

Honestly I think you could piss into a broken Tippmann and it'd work. It really wouldn't suprise me.
