Re: Spyder Product Lineup for 2009/2010
VS has been discontinued from production since the RS/RSX. The RS and electra are very similar and it appears that they put them both out on the market at the same time to see what got better response.
The balance valve looks like its days have been numbered. The "SE" valve or should i say valve pin is to replace it as a cheaper alternative. You get quality LP performance for cheaper is what looks like has been done. The cost of having an entirely different valve assembly probably didn't pay off as well as they liked. with the SE all you that is different is the valve pin and maybe a lighter main spring, maybe, otherwise the electra uses the same valve body, striker, and main spring. The VS/RSX internals are have a differently valve assembly, mini striker, and hell even the main spring is shorter.
