I need help choosing which gun to use. I have an azodin kaos stock parts with proto primo hopper(can switch that to the gun I will go with). I am getting a spyder flash (maybe with LCD?) from a friend who is giving it to me with a stock barrel and another one. I know I didn't give much info but which one should I use. Also I use rps heat if that makes a difference.

Spyders suck.


Electronic blowbacks just have a lot of problems, shred orings, and are unreliable. My first marker was a spyder and I almost left the hobby because it would always leak.

There's nothing wrong with Spyders, they'll perform as well as any other blowback. That being said, the Flash is an older gun, but it'll easily outshoot a mechanical Kaos.

He already has the Azodin, and he is getting the Spyder for free. What better marker can he get for free and where?
Reading, it's important.

E-grip on an A5 and you're gonna have a bad time. Besides, they're loud, heavy, inefficient, kicky, and over priced.

Welcome to TechPB. I dont know about everyone else, but i would reccomend the smart parts vibe. You tcan get them for $80 refurbished here and it will out perform the kaos , even at stock and you can get the blackheart board for $100 more and it will perform just as good if not better than most $250 to $300 new guns.

If you shop it on ebay, you can get an invert mini for just a little more than that. $225 about. It's a common gun, lots of people know how to work on them and it performs extremely well for the price point. It can shoot any paint you want too. A5's are a good gun, it's just overpriced loud harsh etc. Get a mini used!!!

No at that point, id say either extcy (or rail) over the mini, or save up and get either a new or used axe or alien invasion.

That's the absolute best thing you can do. You're the one who is going to be using it, so your opinion is the only one that matters.

Just some tips for a flash.
Lube your o-rings often.
Make sure your fore grip is good and tight.
If you are using C02 try to stay out full auto and shoot at a slower pace because your tank will freeze up.
Also you'll need a feed-neck adapter if he doesn't give you one.
If I didn't buy so many guns for the sole purpose of fondling them i'd be a very rich man.
Am I the only one that when they see FEP QUEST they read it as FAP-QUEST then chuckle silently?

Thanks I will keep that in mind. Especially the full auto one because I was so close to doing that until I realized that I don't have any co2

Welcome to TechPB
If you like tippmanns your going to have a bad time.
Ok let's go on, I have to say that your Kaos would out perform the spyder by a lot. If you want a new good look around the BST for a good gun. You just might get lucky(I never do :( )

It's not liking it that's the problem. It's recommending them. Unless it's the Crossover, you're going to have a bad time and everyone else is going to have fun arguing.

how so? Tippmanns are tanks! They don't just "not work" unless you burried them in the mud for a few years, took a dump down the Breech and JB welded the ASA shut. That may make it not work... maybe., and if I was a newer player I'd want my gun to go bang every time instead "hold on guys my gun is leaking" or "Why can't I chrono over 250?!"

They just don't work as nicely as most other markers, and they don't give you any relative advantage whatsoever, especially for the price they are sold at. In this day and age, markers shouldn't have any innate initial issues, or any issues for the matter, as long as you properly maintain them, which, as long as you aren't an ignorant and irresponsible 12 year old who doesn't care for their marker, shouldn't be an issue. Its the same reason why we don't recommend the DP G4.

STOP THE TIPPMANN DISCUSSION HERE. Don't turn it into my 1,000th post topic again.
