Hello, I'm new to paintball and I'm getting the '07 matte red sonix value pack from a local PB store. I'd like to know any certain upgrades I should get. I'm already positive, though, I'm doing a custom paintjob to "make it my own :p". I also heard a "J&J ceramic '14" is the way to go. Help on barrels would be nice too. I'm thinking of the "E-trigger"?? Also, lol, any paintball terminology u could tell me would help considering I know about nothing. :)


Thanks for everything,
Sonix:)

If you want to get a more Woodsball oriented gun, why dont you get a MR1, MR2, or MR3?

A 14 inch J&J Ceramic is a great barrel to start off with. Just make sure that you get a bore of paint to match your barrel.

Can't afford anything that expensive + gear. MR1 was a gun I thought about, but decided Sonix -sigh-. Thanks on the barrel tip. Also, checking out the site now. Thanks again :)

have you thought about buying used?
Kingman (Spyder) guns have a bad resale rate, so you could play 125 on the sonix or you can buy it online used for about 60 dollars.

yeah, i thought about it.thing is, i got a mask + sonix marker + rubbish loader + spare stuff etc. for $80. was that a good deal? I figure marker 65 + mask 15 ish + loader 3-5 + spart parts 0 = right at about the right price?

You can buy a pilot ACS for that much. Upgrading a spyder IS a money pit so buy the highest upped out of the box one you can afford.
