Well the video is out and it looks like its a vs2 that runs off of co2 with and inline reg and an asa. the x has a tadoe board and andthe plattnum kit
i gues they stooped back down to co2:(

King-man.
You have to understand where Spyder is in the market. Yes they are trying to make new and better guns, but they are not targeted to the Pros. They are targeted to the beginning player. Not everyone has the money to go out and buy a HPA tank, and get a million ups for it. Not everyone wants it. And lastly, not everywhere fills HPA. It is good that they are using HPA and CO2, as well as have a Tadao board in it to appeal to the not so beginner-

yeah i am excited, i have nowhere that will fill HPA so i have to use co2, i might buy a rs

They aren't going to venture into the high end market because look at the competition. You have all these high end companies making great guns at super low prices. Kingman already pretty much owns the entry level markers but now with these companies lowering their prices it gets tougher and tougher. If they went into the high end range they would have to make an excellent gun at prices that can compete and that is easier said than done.

I think it looks nice and will attract more people because of the option to use CO2. Also the Vert. reg, on/off, and Tadao board are also big plusses.

Kenny_McCormic
01-15-2008, 03:58 PM
All of you guy putting it down for being co2 compatible are completely stupid. Co2 guns must be built much stronger and more durable than a HPA only gun. Co2 is a heavier gas that makes recocking easier. Many people own Hummers but only a handful use them off road.

01-15-2008, 04:02 PM
probably more in the 250-300 $$ range. only because of the T board.

I think that the RS is just a CO2 compatible VS2 + a tadao board and a few extras

Hob Hayward
01-15-2008, 06:03 PM
Thats exactly right newkid.

TBH, anyone who says Kingman is stooping down by making it work with CO2, is an idiot. CO2 compatibility opens the door for many players who aren;t willing to commit to buy a $200 air tank. And, in all honesty, I think CO2 is a better gas. Properly regged and anti-siphoned, it's cheaper, just as consistent, and as someone mentioned above, it works better with blowback markers in general.

The only thing it really means, is that the VS (RS is essentially VS + better reg as far as I can tell) has a robust construction that will take a beating and keep going. High end EP's can't tolerate the CO2 because of their pneumatic noids.

CO2 Compat = good.

01-15-2008, 06:19 PM
Hte thing Im disipointed in is the fact that it only runs at 300 psi, I had my VS2 below that, I think they should make it more low pressure.


*hard thinking* I wonder if you could put the VS Balance valve and internls in there*hardthinking*

th3_0n3
01-15-2008, 06:33 PM
I'd get the RSX.

What's so new about this Spyder? It's a VS-2 that runs on co2 as well to me. New trigger and normal regulator and on/off. But, it was Bad Company that mainly made Kingman remake the VS's because they were not reliable and they weren't reliable with many other players as well. (Including me. I had my VS-2 break quite a bit) So what did they do to make them good enough to work better and actually stay reliable? New internals?

isn't there two versions of the gun, the RS and the RSX, the RSX has a platinum kit and that tadao board. so the RS would be like what, $60 - $80 cheaper??

i know, but this makes be happy because this means kingman IS listening to us, i've been dreaming of eyes on my mr for forever,

the rsx is a vs3 body without the shroud, the bottomline on/off reg thing they've been doing for years gone and replaced with an inline reg. and it runs on co2 fine? and to top it off a stock tadao board, also all the new spyders have inline holes for the asas,

if the rsx has a standard threading for the reg, that just proves kingman has been listening to us and fixing most of the small picky things people been complaining about over the years

now only if they milled down the body of all that excess metal it be almost perfect

:) , i don;t know about yall but i see good things in the future besides overpriced highends with different milling

01-17-2008, 05:23 PM
Now BACK ON TOPIC!
Does anyone (DRAGON) know if they will have different internals, meaning like the bolt and stuff, I think it would be uber sweet if they made it with a delrin striker. And I also see on the website that it says 3G technology, well then why doesnt it run at the same pressure as the VS's?

chnk
01-17-2008, 08:24 PM
lower pressure might not always be the best thing, 200 psi led to some recocking issues in the vs

i thinking the inernals might be better judging from the vid the kick is lower

Nenkitsune
01-17-2008, 09:24 PM
According to the site, the RSX runs under 250psi while the RS runs at 300psi.

so SOMETHING is different internally between the two.

HeadShot
01-17-2008, 09:27 PM
....maybe those bad company internals that we soooo desperately want?? *drools*

king-man
01-18-2008, 05:48 AM
maybe the rsx will have the delrin striker and not the rs

whatever they did, i like it. if you want to go into detail as to whether LP is better or not, nerobro on PBN has a whole thread on it, and the specifics just boggle my mind... (he's trying to rebuild one of his old guns and the question came up.)

king-man, how far west are you in KY. i know of about 4-5 fields within a 1-1.5 hrs drive south of louisville, and as far as i know, they all fill hpa...

Kenny_McCormic
01-25-2008, 12:54 PM
Its more than a derlin striker, they claim that the RSX is HPA only while the RS can run co2. The two have different valve setups, if you read the description under the vid the RSX has a 3rd gen valve (VS2 style) and the RS does not.

Union County, If you look at a map, its the spot where KY,IL,IN meet, Louisville is about 2.5 hours away, they only field(in ky) that i know of within 1hrs drive is this place In Owensboro, KY. But i heard there fields suck becuz you play on old tennis courts. There is a place in IN, about 1 hour 1.25 hours away that has everything, i wish i could play woodsball though, then i have to drive forever, in Paduca i heard theres a good place but its about 2hrs, aswell as Ntense Sports in Bowling Green, any sugestions on place near me i would greatly apreiciate.

kramernator

the RS/X will most likely be over $200

IMO if you use HPA go with the SLG
If you use co2 go with the RS/X

The Spyder RSX Marker is built for the player that requires the very best in performance featuring the Tadao® Technologies Circuit Board combined with the operational benefits of the "3G" Technology Balanced Valve System. Designed to perform at the highest level of competition... 30 BPS Rate of Fire, low operating pressure, and customizing capabilites that were previously only available on high end markers. Operational at 250 PSI the RSX runs at a low working pressure reducing premature paintball breaks from air impacting the surface of a paintball. The "3G" Balance Valve System is designed to use Compressed Air only as a propellant to obtain maximum performance. Manipulation of the air pressure through the Fast Charge Inline Regulator provides the RSX with a steady air flow for consistent shot to shot velocity even at extremely high rates of fire. A completely independent Vented Pressure Relief On/Off CA Adapter maximizes the flow of air supplied by the compressed air system.

Standard Features
+ Tadao® Technologies Circuit Board
+ "3G" Technology Balance Valve System
+ Break Beam Eye (Anti-Chop System)
+ Fast Charge Inline Regulator with Rubber Grip
+ Vented Pressure Relief On/Off CA Adapter
+ Steel Braided Hose Line
+ Quick Release Delrin Bolt
+ 14" Two Piece Micro Ported Barrel
+ Twist Lock Clamping Feedneck
+ 3 Way Adjustable Saber Trigger
+ External Velocity Adjuster
+ Wrap Around Grip
+ Push Button Access Membrane
+ Micro Gauge
+ Low Pressure Chamber

Performance Features
+ 30 BPS Rate of Fire
+ 5 Modes of Operation (Semi-Auto "Uncapped", Semi-Auto, PSP, Millennium Ramp & Burst "15 BPS Cap")
+ Adjustable Trigger Debounce Sensitivity
+ Anti-Chop Eye System Functional in All Modes
+ Fast Charge Inline Regulator
+ 250 PSI Operational Pressure
+ "3G" Technology High Performance Low Pressure System
+ Operates on Compressed Air Only

Go for the PMR, it's worth it in the long run over the SLG. ;) As far as the RSX goes... time will tell, I have to shoot it first. It'll have a damn good run for its money compared to the PMR, though. Mine had almost no kick, very accurate, and quiet... all right out of the box. Biased? Not really, preference is more like it. A lot of people on these boards started on Spyders and like to keep the tradition going on this forum, even though we no longer own one. :D

its not a board its a chip, and if buy shipset you mean software, its a stock tadao board, you could add the musashi chip and get all the extra features i suppose, unless they changed something on the way it goes on but id doubt it, basically its the same as the regular and the chip is just if you want the extra modes, like full auto, me, im fine with uncapped and capped semi, psp, and millinium and burst. you cant use full auto in most tourneys so i dont really care for it or any of the other modes

Hey guys since the bodies of the vs3 and the rs are pretty must identical mirror and mirror do you think the vs body kits will work the same? the are $20 bucks right now any color and the spyder pages have rs body kits but not available yet should i just buy the vs body kit? the only question is the reg might be different but the eyes and feed neck and other stuff will still work.

i figured i would buy one now because then they will jack up the price and call it a rs kit. also the musashi chip does work on the rs boards thier is one video of the rs with the musashi chip on youtube shooting ropes of paint.

To spyderpro:
see if you could move the board closer to the mem pad side of it, i did that and now it the buttons work fine
To calisoldier85:
honestly what did you expect, RSX is way more advanced, 3G valve, sabre trigger which is alot better than i first thought it would be, the whole design is way cooler, teh on off asa, the fact that it blings when you bring it out and it blinds all your frinds, the Tadao Board, the actaully good reg, did i mention the blingness also?

I own the Spyder RSX and tell you the truth it run sooo smoothly and i have Crossfire 68ci/4500psi HPA tank and man im in love with my gun... Obviously it sucks if you dont have a place to fill it up but man uses less air but more shots... like CO2 where it runs quickly... RSX is awesome

I have a RSX and used it 4 times now, each time playing for a couple of hours. Shooting some 4000 pellets I am guessing.
It is very reliable and as fast as you probably want. I am using a HALO loader and HPA tank. Have not had a single break, and only once experienced that it did not cock properly.
I am a beginner at paintball and this is my first marker, so don't have much to compare with, but it is easy enough for me and so far very reliable. Even when using the ramping modes.

A couple of issues though. The feedneck(?) is too wide for my HALO loader, so I had to put tape around the HALO neck to make it stay attached to the marker and prevent it from falling off. The difference is quite big, the loader does not fit at all unless you roll a few rounds of tape around it.
Second issue, the ballstoppers fall out. I have lost three already and have only one left (if you don't know, there should be one pair of ballstoppers inside the "chamber" to stop the balls when coming down from the loader). The marker still works now with only one left, I have ordered new, but find it annoying that they would fall out so easily. Will try to glue them I think.
Finally, the balls seem to drift to the right at the end of their trajectory if you shoot at long distances. This is quite consistent so you can still aim somewhat by adjusting to the left, but it puzzles me. Have a friend with an RSX and he has the same issues as I have.
Been wondering what causes the right drift, the only thing not symmetric are the small air holes at the end of the barrel, wonder if that is what makes the balls drift.

Sorry if I used some wrong words, I am used to real guns and not quite into the paintball lingo yet.

I had the exact same problem. Called Spyder and they wanted me to send in the gun, but I didn't have time for that.

I fixed the problem myself tho, I'll post some pics soon. Here's what you do.

1. Get yourself some epoxy or JBWeld (I used JBWeld).
2. Use rough grit sand paper and just pass 2-3 times at the tip of the buttons on the circuit board.
3. put a dab of JBWeld on each button, to about 1mm-2mm thick
4. Wait until it dries enough to manipulate, but not full dryness, and sand to the required thickness. Don't wait till it's fully cured to do this because you don't want to be rough on those buttons, they don't look too robust!

Problem solved.

Moving the circuit board wasn't an option as it didn't want to move at all. The screws would just bring it back again.

man, i own both RS and the RSX, they are KICK ASS! they have only a couple minor flaws.

1-the stock detents, but we've put the hazmat detents in ours, and now there is no problem

2-valve o-rings were no good on ours.
