09 February 2009 - 01:06 PMHey guys. Just adding to the reviews section to make it larger. Below is my review for the Spyder Victor.
The 2007 Victor is very basic paintball marker that's great for new players on a tight budget. There are quite a few upgrades for this marker, and it doesn't take much to turn it into a reliable paintball spraying machine.
*Durable - I have beat the daylights out of this gun
*Easy to maintain - It is very easy to clean, even in the middle of the game. The bolt is field removable (see pics below). You can clean a chopped ball out of the gun in under 10 seconds. Very easy to take apart and oil.
*Lightweight - the marker isn't the lightest thing out there, but it's considerably lighter than a lot of the other markers I have played with.
*Stock barrel's bore is a very nice size. Measuring in at just over .690, this barrel has fit most of the paint I use (RPS Polar Ice(cold) and Sterling Pro(warmer))
*A little on the loud side
*Very low velocity out of the box, so you'll spend a little time at the field chronographing your marker for the first time if you don't have your own.
*No fore grip may be uncomfortable for some people
*Stock feed neck is not great
This gun is very nice, even as a main marker. The only things I have upgraded on the marker are the barrel (14in Freak Jr Kit) and the Hopper (Empire Invert Reloader 2) and I love using this. Its surprisingly accurate, incredibly reliable, and ridiculously durable. I have gone through about 3 or 4 cases of paint in the past couple weeks and have only broken one ball. It makes a great marker for a beginner and it's many available upgrades can make this marker great.
Showing the field-strip-able-ness(new word much?) of the marker. All the way through the marker in one shot. The bolt is removed by pulling up on the pin on the top of the bolt and then sliding the bolt right out of the back.

06 February 2009 - 11:34 PMHey all. I am new to the forums so I thought I would do my part to better it. Here is my review of the Empire Invert Reloader 2.
First let me start with the advertised features of the loader:
*Magnetic lid, no more snapping!
*Automatically adjusting sensitivity
*Auto turn off after 30 minutes
*Low battery indicator
*Push button on/off
*10-12 balls per second
*Holds approximately 200 paintballs
*Operates on 2 9V batteries
The magnetic lid on this loader is great. You don't have to worry about making sure that your lid is closed all the way. The lid also has a magnet near the hinge to keep it open so it does close shut on you while you are loading. Power the device on and off is a snap. The loader's sound activation works very well and is very consistent, not to mention fairly quiet. The advertised feed rate of 10-12 balls is fairly accurate. I had this loader at a consistent 16 BPS with brand new batteries. Low battery indicator is bright enough to be seen in full sunlight. The agitator doesn't allow balls to get stuck underneath it. The loader holds 200 rounds as advertised. The battery life on the unit is excellent. Good price. Very durable.
The unit is a little on the heavy side. I was not a fan of the 2 9V batteries it runs on but the battery life makes up for that.
This is a great loader for the intermediate player. I was very surprised at the durability. Last weekend I slipped on some ice and it smacked against the ground and kept going after that. I have hit trees with it, dove on it, dropped it, and it still keeps on trucking. I would recommend this loader again and again.
