Watching an episode of Barter Kings tonight, these guys have a Home Brewery set they put up for a trade. They ended up getting an offer for a paintball gun, which I thought "Oh boy, this oughta be good"...


So they show up to this guys house, firstly he is shooting it in the back with no facial protection, stupid first of all, but whatever. But then they show the gun, which the guy valued at "800 dollars"....

It's a freaking Spyder ESP Imagine. I just about died laughing. His exclamations were it had a "custom trigger" (stock trigger), "custom loader" (It was an Eggy), and that it could change the fire settings and was "Banned in Competitions" for being able to set the velocity lol.

Looked it up, things worth like 35-40 bucks lol.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share a chuckle.

Where was this filmed? lol Sadly, I have friends who would try something like that.

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

I don't think I could even get 800 off my gently used ego 11, let alone a spyder imagine. Do these guys have no access to internet/ google. Major face palm.

Yup, I saw that too, or at least the later part of the episode. I tuned in when they were at the zoo with the snake. I think it's really impressive that they could trade a $50 setup for a $1500 snake.

Yah those shows are all BS, my in-laws were watching storage wars and they found these two Star Wars figure sets that they valued at like $1200 each. I know for a fact that they are worth less that $50 in brand new condition.

Saying the marker is banned from tournament use because you can adjust the velocity on it is hilarious. Kinda tempted to call them up and let them know what the real value of that marker was.

Haha I'd still rock an Eggy if I didn't have a back up loader already. I loved those things, they always looked ridiculous, but they worked (in my case anyway).

If you watch more of this, I would say they came out on top. They traded it for a huge python, which I'm assuming is worth more than a spyder. But then again, this stuff is probably fake anyway.

Upon looking and carefully inspecting I have found out if I am correct it is the Spyder Flash, they probably got the "banned from tournaments" line from the fact that they read up on the spyder rocker trigger upgrade which is banned from tournys and they could say "upgraded" hopper because of the fact that it came in a set most likely with a grav fed. Also the anno on it is most likely not stock which would have costed a bit of money but actually hindered it value so I say that setup since there's an air tank with it $100.

Old spyders back then came with funky annos like that.
The anno is most likely stock.

The guy thought his upgraded trigger was the rocker trigger, so that would make sense why it was banned like MrBk said.
The tank is a cheapo C02 that you can get from walmart for 15 bucks.

$50 at most.

You guys are totally missing what he said, he didn't say anything about it being banned because of the frame. He said it was banned because the end-user can change the velocity on it. He claimed absolutely nothing about it being banned because of the grip.

No one would pay close to $100. That gun would have to be forced on me for more than $20.

^^^^^^^^^^^

This.

ALso, he didn't say it was an "upgraded loader", he said it was a "custom" loader. Custom means 1 of 1 (or one of few). Correct me if I'm wrong but Eggy's ain't that rare lol.

A working Eggy without the loading door broken is extremely rare. Rarer than those special edition Ego and Geo combos that went for $10k or so. :P

I highly doubt he meant BPS. If he knows paintball well enough to know about velocity, I'm sure he meant velocity.
