So I got the Spyder Opus and have used it for playing woodsball with some friends..but i'm contemplating going to LL6 and don't wanna drop a ton of $$$ on .68 paint...so that got me thinking, what about the Spyder Advancer?

Does anyone have it? If you do, what do you think about it? Have any problems? Or would it just be better to get the G.I. Milsim G.I. 50???

I believe the paint at LL has to be bought from CPX and no outside paint.

LL6 should have .50 cal available to you. I know mike used his nano for LL4. As for guns, the advancer is solid and you can pick them up new for cheap right now. I don't know anything about the low end GI gun, however the nano is nice, but I wouldn't put a ton of money into a .50 cal gun right now since its mostly a fringe market.

If you want to get sponsored, present yourself as a mature adult, not a four year old with a crayon.

If you have an Ego or Etek, just purchase the .50 cal kit if you're really that interested.

I had a nano and absolutely hated how the gun shot

There is also this:
And this:

Both of these are sub-$200 and are available today.I say get the micro because of the double trigger and it will be easier to shoot faster.But,if you are only going to use it for scenarios,then the GI 50 should be ok,since most scenarios allow full-auto.
Don't forget that you will also need a hopper:
Mike(as well as the reviews)have said some good things about this loader.

CPX does allow .50 cal. Mike used his Nano in LL4.
You gas up the marker, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field... It doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last nite, all that matters is your in your world next 2 hours. Live it. Love it. Paintball <3

Old thread, but, important question. According to the CPX site, you can't. I'd be surprised if they changed that for Living Legends, as frankly, it's one of the ways a field can stay open:
