03-25-2006, 10:33 PM
I've been a proud owner of a rodeo for about 1 1/2 years now, by the way i want to join that club u guys have, and im thinking about getting an electronic trigger. I would like to buy an e-marker and use the trigger from that, so that i have a backup or i can sell it to a friend. Which marker should i use? I thought about an imagine just coz its cheap. also, any other uprades i should think about?

First of all, Welcome to the forum! You won't find a better bunch, who are more willing to help anywhere.
My suggest, if you just plan to buy another gun for the trigger frame, then sell the rest of the parts, is just to find a used trigger frame. You can find them pretty easily on the B/S/T forums here or on pbnation. Usually they go for about $30-50 used.
As for other upgrades, if you don't already used compressed air, I'd go with that. Really thats the only upgrade that you might find necessary. Well if you get the electronic trigger frame you might also want an anti chop bolt, as well as an electronic loader, if you don't have one already.
Also if you haven't already you might want to check out OtterSC Customs (http://www.ottersccustoms.com), he is pretty much the spyder guru and most information that you need to know about spyders are on his site.

You might want to pick up a new barrel if you don't already have one.

Ok, ive changed my mind. I'm not going to cough up the $150 to eframe my rodeo. i just dont need to be firing 14bsp. I'd rather go 1 shot 1 kill. Ok, back the upgrades. Ill prob go with HPA if i can get it cheap. Any ideas?

eh actually .... the e-frame costs only about 25-50 ... But the 1shot 1 kill rule is good still ...
Also, for HPA ... you should save for a carbon fiber tank .. probably a 68/45 ... it'll probably run you about .. 80-140 depending if it's new, or used, the company of the tank, and also the hydro date of it ...

the frame i want is the CAMD 2. I can buy it new for $90, but i have a deal pending at $75. Plus ill have to get a hopper that'll keep up with the frame. Not to mention the added cost of paint. im thinking about an ACS bolt, but i dont break a lot of balls, mabe 1 or 2 in about 2000, so i dont think ill do that. any gun upgrades i should consider using with HPA?

is there a big different between a 3000psi HPA and 4500psi tank??
03-26-2006, 04:12 PM
yes, the amount of shots you get ... 3k tanks are about 10 shots every CI and 4500 are about 15 shots every CI ... so if it's a 68/3k it's 680 shots and a 68/45 is about 1020 ... big difference huh ?? ... there are just estimates though ...

do you know of any places/websites that sell HPA tanks for cheap?
03-26-2006, 08:14 PM
lol......HPA isn't cheap unless you buy used off of Nation...or a 47/3K steel tank...
03-27-2006, 06:06 PM
Yeh, but i would like a 68/45. Plus, isn't steel really heavy?
ah, i can come up with the $180 to buy one, since ive heard that it drasically improves the performance. I can sell the 2 CO2 tanks i have for prob $20 each, kinda good since i found one of them, and it still has 3 years one hydro.

Get Fiber Wrapped (much Better)

Get Fiber Wrapped (much Better)
Well actually the air coming out of the tanks is the same, so it can not be better. The fiber wrapped tanks are lighter and offer a larger size selection, but if all you can get is a steel HPA tank then it is better than using C02.
So get what ever you can afford.
I prefer fiber wrapped, and that is what I have. A 68/45 and 45/45. But again HPA is HPA and the tank that holds it is just personal preference.
