Personally, I hated the old spyders, circa 1997-2000. They just had shitty, long, heavy, swept forward triggers. The new spyders are actually nice guns for the price. Only problem is the velocity adjustment range, but a spring kit will easily fix that.


I have a 08 Spyder Electra and I have not chronoed it yet, but will the velocity be below 300 fps or can I change it so it is under 300 fps using the velocity adjustment thing? Or is my only option a spring kit?


First, be careful about cutting off the quote tags in your posts.

Second, try it first, but don't be surprised if you need to buy a spring kit or cut the stock spring. Spyders are adjustable, but the adjustment range is pretty small.


Yeah sorry about that. I'm kinda new to the forums and I didn't mean to do it on purpose.

But anyways do you recommend getting a pocket chrono so I can make sure its to field standards before I actually go to the field?


If you're playing AT FIELDS, I wouldn't bother. You can chrono there. If you're doing a lot of tinkering, or playing outlaw, it's worth the money.

FWIW, I had one of the yellow/black handheld chronos, and it broke after being used less than a dozen times. It will work if I pull the electronics out of the housing, but it something is screwing it up when it's assembled. Just a word of warning.


Yeah, but I'm saying I need to know if its at field standards before I go to the field and its over 350 fps so I need to know if I should buy a new spring kit or not.
