I have a new Electra I have Tried several brands of Paintballs, and I bought a Odyssey barrel kit. I can not get the gun to shoot straight. I have not Chrono the gun yet so I do not know at what fps I am shooting. the only other gun I have owed is a Xtra so this is my first Electric gun, and the first gun with a regulator. can some one point me at some good links or give me some Ideas. is there any good books that I can read to help me understand how every thing works and what effects what.

I really would Chrono your marker. If it is shooting hot (above 300) it can really effect the paintball as it flys. I once read than above 300fps the ball can actually deform as it comes out of the barrel, and an egg will never fly straight ;). If you need a Chrono I have one for sale. Just PM me. I have not listed yet in the B/S/T.

well I guess I need to turn it down I lowerd the regulator down to 500 thinking that would do it but I guess I was wrong I will try adjusting at the back of the Gun.

When I bought my Electra, the guy at the shop told me to keep it cocked for at least a week to get the velocity down, because Spyders always shoot hot new. That way I wouldn't need to cut the spring, or buy a spring kit just to lower the fps. Hope this helps

Watcha mean? Every Spyder anyone of my friends has bought always shoots hot, sometimes even 320 fps. So why not leave it cocked for a while? Explain.

Plus, I know this guy, he knew what he was talking about. He wasn't just some new guy on the job BSing me.

I am guessing it would take some time to compress the spring enough to lower the velocity.

I agree with you on the hot shooting out of the box. I would recommend a spring kit before keeping your bolt cocked for a week.
