first of all delete the other two threads and do not thread spam please
but yes you can you will need a HPA tank for your spyder and fill it only with HPA(N2, nitrogen,air all the same thing). works just like co2 but its much better and more consistent

Kthx /on this topic
As far as hints to get it "working good", this forum is FULL of things to help. Just browse around, don't expect an answer the second you ask, decide which direction you want to go and start! Now, if you were to ask a specific question, we could help more.
For starters, here's Vike's top 5 things to get your gun working great:
1. New barrel
3. Motorized loader
4. Clamping feedneck and on/off ASA
5. Nitrogen (yes, you can use it on your pilot. All guns are able to accept HPA with no upgrades required.)

Ok, wow! Man, my eyes hurt after that last post! :smileysanta:
Here we go - HPA WON'T help you win. Practicing, playing smart ball, shooting straighter, faster and better than everyone else will....
Now, as far as size goes, that depends on you. If you can afford a 4500 psi tank, and have a place to fill it, then go for it. The preferred size is a 68 ci 4500 psi tank - gets about as many shots as a 20 oz Co2 will get you, more or less, depending on your gun and setup.
Also, the actual size of the tank is a factor, depending on how big a person you are. Some people can't use a big tank and actually prefer a smaller tank, say in the 45 ci 3000 psi. Of course, you're only going to get about the same number of shots as your 9 oz Co2 tank....

yeah i use a 47/3000 tank and i get ruffly 470 actual shots and about 30 more with major drop off (like effective range 10 feet).
you might want to try out a 45/4500 due to your body size (i dont know how big you are, but when i was 14 i was like 5 feet tall :/) but if you like to play back/not run too much and you can support it (plus youl grow into it) 68/4500 is a good idea.
and btw on dragos post id get the clamp neck b4 the electric hopper

well know this is a spider site bt i know a friend that can get ion smart parts from wARE I HAVE NO IDEA AND HE CAN GET ME ONE WITH A HALO B HOPPER AND A COUPLE OF 16 OZ C02 DO U THINK I SHOULD SELL MY PILOT AND BUY THE ION FOR ONLY $200 FOR ALL OF THAT STUFF... TELL ME THE TRUTH..THANKS
12-15-2006, 06:18 PM
welcome to the forums and im 14 to but im only 4ft 10in and i got a 45/45 tank and i think its perfect butif you buy the ion youll have to buy n2 but its all about preference
12-16-2006, 12:56 PM
yeah i would not recommend at all shooting co2 through an ion, better off getting a gun that can handle co2 or getting a co2 reg is a risky option...
12-16-2006, 02:13 PM
no because the ion internals cannot handle co2 that well
12-16-2006, 04:28 PM
thanks i want that ion but i dont know anything about paintball dont call me stupid for this question, is ion smart parts electric
12-16-2006, 04:36 PM
12-16-2006, 04:52 PM
dont feel stupid about question (unless its completely insane like for example: i dont own)
i had a lot of questions when i first started playing, but i just ran around pbreview, pbnation(not really the nicest place), and here and know i know just as much as the average guy

well do u think i can still take back my gun if i shot it like in one paintball war i can just say that it broke or somin cuz i still need money fo that ion i think they will take it back cuz its from wal-mart
12-17-2006, 09:55 AM
thats very dishonist and i dont think they will since it is used,
looks like your ether foruming it/ebay
12-17-2006, 02:58 PM
well i didnt shoot it yet but i can still take it back but i was going to shoot it some but they might not take it back
12-17-2006, 03:10 PM
if its out of the plastic or wrapping or whatever it came in, your chances of getting money back is slim.
ebay is gonna be your answer, and you arent gonna get alot from there
12-17-2006, 04:59 PM
no i didnt take it out of the package and i dont got an ebay account and my mom hated the intenet so she wont bu anything off there...lol...
12-17-2006, 05:01 PM
then you should be able to return it if it hasnt been opend yet....like any other item
12-17-2006, 05:14 PM
If its still in the plastic then you can probably return it. Also If you get the ion you NEED A HPA TANK. dont use co2 on it because you will definitely break it.
