I just got a spyder xtra with a rhino hopper and I want to do upgrade but don't know what parts I need. I read the ottersc website and it was helpful but theres some parts I don't get. If I upgrade to get a on/off asa. what other parts do I need? regulator? lines? drop forward? any help? thanks

congrats on the gun!
and welcome to the forums!!!
there is alot of stuff to learn here, and ask questions, because were here to help! but dont forget to use the search section.

If you search Ultimate Research Thread....there should be a long thread i made on alot of parts and what they do and recommended parts...
check there!

I would suggest to get a reg, and macroline. you will then need 2 fittings and a little adapter made by CP i think, that wil let you use the holes.

thank you. I never seen that. it helped a lot. I'm probably going to get a cp barrel, 32* spring kit, and striker and hammer. then a drop forward and regulator. the lines and adapters for the asa, drop forward, and regulator though where could I find them online?

Look inthe sales corner for some of the stuff. You can find many many things for a smaller price.

Check your pms.

There are many many different paintball sites you can buy the stuff from also. Look here. Boom (http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=3841)

Don't get a new striker. Just polish the on you have now. The "how to" to that is on Otter's website

you need to make sure the screws on the drop/asa match up with a spyder pattern, the holes are slight offset on the bottom of the grip where most screws are inline.

I have a CP drop and it works great, they should note if it has the spyder offset.

also I would go with Macro line and a CP reg. they look good and keep the weight down (make sure you get high pressure macro as well.

Sounds like you got a good start, now you should post pics ;)

Be sure to do a trigger job too. And polish the internals the whole gun behaves alot smother if you do.
