Please only people who know what their talking about lol.

This VS1 is less than a year old. It doesn't have one scratch on it. I upgraded 2 things. The feedneck. And I got a VS2 infiniti trigger for it.

I spent:
$140 Gun
$20 feedneck
$7 Trigger

Total $167...

Tell me what you think its worth. I did the little paint job myself. But I think its looks ok and shouldn't really affect the price. I just wanna get a general idea of what its worth. Thanks

In my experience, both selling and watching sales threads on Spyders, the general rule of thumb is to reduce the cost of your gun by 60% of what you paid for everything right off the bat (for spyders, that is). That's what you start asking for, but understand you won't usually get close to that price fo it. Unfortunately, that's the way resale on Spyders usually works.

Unless you get lucky and someone will pay you more - I'd bet that's about the best you can get, give or take 20 bucks...

$100 TOPS is my quote, as it's a VS1.

Cool enough. Thanks...

I wouldnt even give it 100. If someone were trying to sell me one, I wouldnt pay 50 bucks for one. well actually, I wouldnt take it even if they gave it to me....

Good Luck trying to find someone to buy it

Ok well, Its just that I spent so much. I know people don't think much of the VS1. But its a great gun for beginners like I used to be... Its been an awesome first gun, but I'm advancing and have to keep up with the opposing teams...

But just come to my house, I'll kick your butt with it lol...

it's not that it isn't a good begginer gun, it's that spyders have super bad resale value

technically it doesnt matter about the gun its how you feel with it....ive seen guys with egos get nailed by guys with mavericks......in the tourneys that i go to i use my mech. i get laughed at for it but when it comes dopwn to it the gun and i operate as one.....but it is your decision to upgrade honestly i think it would be good to keep it and keep upgrading it......put the vs2 trigger on it up grades board but still keep it
