hi i have a mr1 and im getting a remote line but i saw at a store that theres a tippmann remote line and it only fits tippmanns so is there a spyder remote line or do all lines fit on all markers?

Tippmann may have a special type of asa... But any remote line will fit on your MR1.

that's where i'm gonna get my remote line. i would reccommend a coiled remote line over the braided steel ones.

No. And I would also recommend the coiled one. If you have a local pb shop like pevs or something they'll have one.

Why wouldnt it? all tank threads are the same regardless of make (tippy, spyder, cockerect.) So all remotes should be the same there wont be special remote just for tippmann.

Look for any remote line with a standard ASA fitting. Though I dislike remotes my suggestions are coiled line and one with a slide check. KEE under the PMI brand makes a pretty decent one but really anyone that you find will work great.

Oh, ok. You know more about air systems than I do so I'll take your word for it.

Correct. However I have the distinct memory that Tippmann also makes a Tippy specific kit that replaces the ASA and feeds the line straight into the marker. I may be wrong seeing as I havnt been around my shop in a while so I could be mistaken.

But that doesnt hook to an ASA, if it does they will be universal.

Correct. I was just trying to put in perspective what he may have seen as a Tippy remote line.

My son had a tippmann coiled remote and used it on his vs1. The asa and tank threads should be standard. One end screws onto your tank threads the other into your asa this side had a quick disconnect. If the quick disconnect section was missing it wouldn't work and definitely look wrong.
