The 06 Electra has a 2 piece barrel. Do any aftermarket tips fit the stock back piece? Also, has anyone heard if spyder plans on making other tips for it?

Thanks guys,
Matt

hey just go and buy a dye ultralight for your electra. if you really want some awesome accuracy buy either a 16 inch or 14 inch. another good barrell is the evil pipe 16".

Quoted from the spyder bible...

"Also, do not get a barrel longer then 14" or shorter then 10". A paintball will need 8-10" to get the desired fps. The remaining 2-4" is needed for guidence. No more. A short barrel will hurt accuracy. A longer barrel will use more gas."

I was wondering about that though. If someone is running LP a longer barrel may use more gas so maybe they might have to run @ 350 psi rather than 250 psi. If that is the case would a longer barrel still be more accurate?

Maybe that bible quote is geared toward people who don't want to run LP or for those just starting out in the game. What do others think?

With all due respect guys, thats pretty off topic here... I completely agree with how good those barrels are, but itd be nice to save some money if you can use the stock tip or back. Anyone have and knowledge of how the spyder back or tip will work with aftermarket pieces?
