i didnt know that they were doing it, but when you think about it, you need one gun to play paintball, but you fire off 100s or 1000s of rounds right... thats why there are soo many paint companies. and with there new products comming out, they are trying to make better stuff, so why not get into paint

I'm liking those prices! I hope its good!

Looks to me like Spyder is implementing a whole low cost good product thing, we have the VS, cheap, reliable and good. The Fasta claims to be good, and its cheap, this paint if its good, is also cheap. I hope they live up to the claims! Especially the fasta, that thing would be a SICK deal if its really as good as they say.

and if you buy more than 100 dollar you get free shipping. I just tried to buy 4 cases and went through the check out and it offered me free shipping. I need to buy some and try it out

Red is tourny grade, so it's good if you have a gun that can handle that (not many stock Spyders can... around here, at least). The black is a general rec-grade paint.

Thick paint? God.. I hope its never shot at our field... that stuff is hard to whipe off bunkers :(

Considering that its spyder branded I bet its tough enoug to shoot out of all spyders.

you're right they do sell just about everything now, but none of the stuff that they make is the best, its just average. but hey i guess if thats what you like then you shouldnt have a problem

Seems to me that the Kingman line is for the average rec player that goes out a couple times a month for some good fun and still wants decent markers and equipment, but can't justify or can't afford the higher end equipment. Which makes the product line perfect for someone like me just getting started - not too expensive, yet it is good enough to go have a good time and still be a bit competitive.

Yes, actually I am very new to the sport I have spent two weeks reading this forum, some over at PBN, and otters - I have been out paintballing twice, and my wife got me a refurb pilot off ebay for christmas, and we got our two teenagers some cheap viewloader kits from wal-mart for christmas so we could all go out whenever we wanted without needing to borrow or rent equipment. My brother-in-law just got a classic autococker from a pawn shop for his first marker (with a vl electronic hopper, two barrels, tank and case for under $100), so we are going to go have some good fun.

Here is my first thread: http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=7867

I have to wait until next Monday to get my marker, and I don't think my wife knows I know she actually got it, even though I picked it out.

so yes, I am a noob. I am learning. I see kingman, spyder and to me it is the same. And as my sig notes - soon to be marker: bone stock spyder pilot. :) as my avatar says stock spyder pilot gonna get you. :)

Kingman breaks off into Raven and Spyder. It's not a big deal, just a finite detail that some choose to pick at.

ok, it is still kingman. kingman is the manufacturer of the spyder guns and such. i am confused because spyder.tv says the fasta is spyder but all the other sites say kingman fasta.

btw, since when is kingmans motto thing "unstoppable".

I just saw this paint today. The funny thing is that I saw it when I was at Frys Electronics looking at mp3 players, I would have never expected to see paintball stuff there. I went up to the sales guy and was like, you guys sell paintball stuff? But I guess they just had the paint. I'll have to pick some up and see how it shoots.

lol, the first time i saw it was at fry's last week. I went in to get some speakers and i knew they had spyder markers but then i saw the red and black boxes and at first thought they were the fasta loaders, but then i saw it was paint. I'm curious as to how well they shoot also.

Well they have a low price so thats good. I doubt it'll be tournament quality but regardless i'll probably pick a case up and use it at an open game soon

I was at frys again today and picked up some of the red box spyder paintballs, now I have to wait for it to quit pouring rain so I can see how they shoot.

Do they look good? like good round shape, and do they break if you drop them. I want to try them but I don't think any place near me is selling them yet.
