I got a 2008 spyder electra, and i hate it so much, it chops like a mofo, horribly inconsistant, and is inefficient. So, my list of guns that i looked at:

DP G3

Invert Mini

Ion XE ( :lol: )

PMR SE

Smart Parts EOS

or any other suggestions for under $550. NO SLG's

thanx

Look on ebay!!!
you could get a DM6/7 for that much. Maybe a PM8. Or 6/7 ego
but that would be the full 550

Any of the above sound good, or you could switch it up and go pump and get a phantom or somthing.
But yeah check ebay if you wanna stay semi there are some incredible deals on there.
This is a killer deal not sure if the site is legit tho..

DM7. Easily one of the best purchases you can make with 550$, I've seen them go as low as 400$

i bought i hardly used vice for $500
i normally would NEVER buy a used gun but i saw it, shot it, and fell in love lol
dont get smart parts (i own smart parts so i can say this). personally my ion never failed (alot of peoples has tho) but you ae going to have to invest a lot of money to get it good.

my best recommendation is to check online on like criagslist or even go to your local shop or field and see whos selling anything.
You say under $550 i would go with the protoge because it almost the same as the vice. but any of the other options poeple suggested are all great guns


sabre made my image to big so it got stolen by kitty. Then sabre was such a cool guy that he made me another one without me knowing it was deleted in the first place

Get something like a DM6/7 or a PM8 with that money, stay away from the Ion...
My sig was edited / removed because it was not within the rules. Images used in signatures are to be less then Width of 600px, and height of 160px. Only ONE image is aloud in the signature, and it must be 30k or less. Only 5 lines of text are aloud. No text larger then size 2 is aloud in the signature.

My image was over the 30k AND My text was too big I really am a muppet

yes, i suggest taking a look at the proto_slg it is a great gun, so is the sp ion XE. if you get the proto rite away you want to get a metal back cap and a clamping feedneck. (the plastic back cap it comes with brakes easily and usually needs replaced rite away) and the stock feedneck is shite. the ion also needs a feedneck, the ion XE is a BOB marker that is much easier to maintain than the old ion.

*alot of people will tell you what you should or should not get just remember in the end it will come down to what YOU like and what YOU think. the player makes the marker essentially.*

OOPS I DIDNT SEE THE NO SLG's part. my bad
