They are both quality guns. Im sure you can find a ton of used VS2s online which can save you some dough. I would suggest the Electra simply because I have an interest in seeing what they are like, with this "new age" of spyders.

the electra is better than the vs2, but if youre on a budget and can run HPA, go for the vs2

Thats probly due to the 09 may not be able to get yet and in 08 the VS and RS and RXS got more add time. Will you yous the gun stock or are you looking to do some mods. I like the VS2, dis like stock reg. sweet LP 220psi.
With stock internals.

and for your wall of text.

Looks
The Electra has a much slimmer profile while the electra is a larger bulkier gun. They both are milled for good look but Electra pulls it off better in a slimming black.

Electra's Updated Features
Well she not only looks hot but is the single most updated kingman ever and even pulls away from even the recent marker such as the VS2.
Generic "UPs"
-Clamping Feedneck
-Top cocking Quick Strip Bolt
-Delrin bolt
-decent quality 2 piece barrel
-rubber grips
Pulling away from the VS2
-Claming instead of Twist-lock Feedneck
-Tadao board with several commonly used modeds
-Blade trigger with magnetic return
-Inline Reg
-ON/OFF ASA
-Reg uses the standard reg threads (ASA)
-Frame Forward + Shortend Body (allows for better perfomance

Valve Performance
Now the question is to balance vavle or to SE valve. Someone along the way may have lead you astray and told you that the VS2 couldn't work on CO2, well they lied. While using CO2 on the VS2 may void your warrenty its will still operate like any spyder or gun for that matter on CO2.

Electra not only can use CO2 without voiding the warranty but the valve is far more efficient. With the balance valve your paying the price for a even sub 300psi Lower Operating Pressure and will probably only ever expect to get 1300-1500 shots per 68/45 tank/ 20oz CO2. On the other hand your have a SE valve operating around 300psi will expect to stretch that to 1500+ shots per equal tank. VicReschke of Pbnation has properly tuned his RS using the same valve and see's consistently 1800+ shots using a 20oz CO2 tank that is anti-siphoned.

My Thoughts
Well both guns are Low pressure spyders capabilities of meeting or exceeding your needs as a spyder enthusiast. While you can pick up a VS2 for less than 100 dollars and the Electra can be bought for MSRP still I would say that the Electra is a clear win. Everything you want in a spyder is in this very spyder to some degree or another and very little if any money will be spent on so called "upgrades" when your purchase your Electra.

the electra, would be the new 09' electra ?
any info on the rsx ?

thanks

the only difference between and 08/09 electra is the feedneck.

The RS is actually very similar performance to the electra, has a SE valve, but in a VS2 body and frame. RSX inline reg and on/off

The RSX is basically an "upped" VS2/3
-VS3 style body (but dark grey and the works RSX)
-VS tadao board (doesn't have the M7 chip you would have to buy it.)
- Blade style trigger, spring return
-Inline Reg (better than VS bottomline but not as good as some aftermarket regs)
-On/off ASA same as RS and electra iirc

otherwise the RSX uses the same bolt and balance valve for internals which means it has the even similar characteristics as the VS2 and VS3

then the rsx is not much of a difference from the vs2 right ? just alittle here and there upgraded ?

tell me if this is worth paying for in beginners terms. thanks

RXS Has improved reg, on off ASA and improved board (req.9.6 volts) Same internals as VS 2&3. It is a good marker as is.

i found this on ebay. what are your thoughts about it ?

I'd say RSX of Electra, both of them are better then the VS2, I'd look at the specs on them and decided which one you like the best. Shoot them if you can, it's mostly about which one feels better to you.

oh coool. thanks now i have to decide on getting the electra or RSX =/

anyone know how much would it be with the electra/rsx with a 68/4500 tank, good hopper(maybe halo b?), redz/nsx/rap4 haurness, luggage, and paintballs ?

thanks.

All new?

Probably around $500ish? Could be a bit more or less I'm not 100% positive.
