I need some suggestions on what to add to my setup. I just got some cash around 90$ and i was thinking about picking something up for my spyder MR2.

I dont want to buy anything that i have to take anywhere to get installed, just an accessory or something.

help me decide?

Well, going by you setup in your sig about all that would be needed is a good regulator & spring kit.

I was kinda thinking about getting this stock http://rap4.com/paintball/os/spyder-paintball-skeleton-butt-stock-p-3778.html
Like I said, I don't want to get something that i need to bring somewhere to get installed, I'd rather get something and be able to put it on myself

If you have allen wrenchs & an adjustable wrech you could install a reg. Springs, if you can take your marker apart you can put them in.

But with the reg, wouldn't I have to undo my macro line and put it back into the reg?

I'm technically challenged so I don't think I want to do that + I have a game coming up this sunday and I dont want to mess up my gun

or maybe get a new valve madmann or turbo valve

Maybe, I was also thinking about making my MR look like a M4A1 Silenced, by getting a barrel with a handguard and a lapco suppressor. But idk, i think i might buy a skeleton stock

your setup is fine. I would reccomend getting a barrel kit in the future but what you have is fine for now. (If you ever get a barrel kit get a hammerhead)

Oh man, I would want nothing more than a hammerhead, but they are really really expensive for a barrel. Currently I am looking at this barrel from trinitypaintball http://www.trinitypaintball.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=TR+343
If i get that, I'll throw a fake suppressor on that badboy to make it look mil-sim

Stay away from that stock, it's horrible.

I've got one here and it does not matchup with the marker very well.
-It's very sloppy and does not mount snug. Moves about an inch at the end back and forth, up and down wobble.
-The velocity adjuster didn't even work correctly doesn't even interface the same way as the MR2 does.

I sent an email to complain to RAP4, they did accomodate me and sent an aftermarket valve guide to go into the velocity adjustment body on the stock, but they way the velocity screws in, it only moves a max of about an 1/8 of an inch. So good luck dialing in your marker after installing this. they also told me to wrap teflon tape around the mount to get rid of the slop.

Point is, this stock was not made for the MR2 specifically and just merely a coincidence that it mirrors other spyder models that the stock will work correctly with.

I think you are better off trying something different unless you don't mind having to fix the stock before you can even use it.

Out of the box, scale 1-10< I give it a 2.

if you pick these up, you'll have to convert your marker to a low pressure operating system,

last i check high pressure over 400 psi would damage these valves,

O lord... take that money, and buy some braided line (actionvillage.com is a great place) i know a lot of people like macro... but man if your in a game, best hope your lines dont break at a bad time. Its like 5 bucks, but thats up to you! good luck (o and if its about shiney crap.. some shrink wrap can color your stainless steel and protect it, or something simpler)

I know, i got it in the mail the other day and it was crap.

I paid 22$ to get it shipped before my big game, so i pretty much lost that.

I'm sending it back

I heard the Pro F/X MR2 stock was pretty good, Im not real sure on that, but you can ask someone like pbgrandpa about it. I am planning on getting in in the not too distant future.

I've never once had macroline break in a game and I've used macro on every single marker I've ever owned. Braided lines are nice, and last longer than macro, but they can go bad just like macro. The cost of replacement for braided is way more than macro.

I have to agree with Shunut.

Macro line is pretty durable, I'd like to see anyone here attempt to break it or tear it with their bare hands, just not going to happen.

Also the ease of breaking down the marker, especially the MR2 with the front grip, using Macro line makes dissasembly a breeze, I'll have my "torn" macro line replaced by the time you dig out your wrenches to fix your braided line.

I back these last two posts completely. I've had a braided line with a pin hole in it and it cost 10 bucks to replace. I bought two macro fittings and hose for like 5 bucks and in 5 years haven't had problems with it. Every gun I've had since my spyder has had macro on it, and not a single issue.

However, if I do, macro at my field is like a buck or so a foot in any color I want (may be more expensive, but team discounts FTW...) Ease of removal and replacement is more than worth the cost.

:stupid: :grin:

macro is pretty strong stuff. just to cut it, i usually end up using big scissors or those flower-stem cutters.

Well, not to go against what everyone said but.....I have had macro burst. Then again it was during a long day sitting out in the sun. I completely agree with the fact that macro is way easier to use and much cheaper. But I can also see braided line being more durable in a Woodsball situation. Plus you can just use quick diconnects to make it easier for disassembly.

Either way both will work so just choose whichever one you think will work better for you type of play.
