a pair of 5 pound dumbbells. If you cant lift your VS2, you really need to start doing something to strengthen yourself. sorry if this sounds harsh, but its reality.

Play with a Shoebox Shocker for a while. That will give you the arm strength you need haha.

They're right, though. The VS2 is one of the lightest Spyders ever made. Heck, it's really light compared to Autocockers.

CF barrel. most aftermarket parts are going to be made of sturdy aluminum, so if anything, those will add weight. but really, your tank and hopper are probably 5x as heavy as your gun...

Naw DF LCDs were actually high pressure Angels, I think all through the IR3 were as well.

In reality the VS2 is a heavier gun compared to newer high-ends, but it's really not heavy at the same time when you compare it to Impulses and Bushys and stuff. Unless your marker is an absolute brick, then the true solution for making your setup lighter is to get a lighter hopper/tank.

Get a 45/4500 carbon fiber tank and something like a Vlocity Jr if you want light, that's what I have right now.. or just lift some weight and deal with what you have :P

you are right, in a way. even though high end guns are lighter, they arent that much lighter. If you cant lug around a say, 5 pound gun for a game, thats when you need to do some kind of workouts. 5 pounds isnt alot, and you have breaks and you get hit say half the time. OP, you better get to sports authority!

No, the Vs2 is still really light. At (what? 2.5-3lbs?) It's not that bad to lug around. My Cyborg weighs 2lbs flat, and that's a high-end. A half pound is really good considering what the difference between a Tippmann weighs and a high end.... ;)

Also, ALL Angels can run HP tanks. You just have to know how. :)

Get a unmilled viking, play for one game then see what you think of your Vs2:p
