Hi everbody im new to the fourms and relativly new to paintball. I play woodsball and I'm thinking of getting my own gun because the one I borrow isn't all that great (not sure what it is) I was thinking of buying the Spyder Xtra, Tl-R, or Tl-X because i do not play a wole lot and they seem a decent price. What one would you buy and why?

I have both, and play mainly woodsball. They're basically the same marker, except for where the cocking lever is located. The XTRA is rear-cocking, and has that "beavertail" guard in back to prevent the cocking lever from hitting you in the mask. The TL-R/X are top-cocking.

I happen to prefer the rear-cocking models. I also have an older Aggressor, which is also rear-cocking. Some folks don't like that beavertail in their face. It really doesn't matter much.
