Default Re: VS3 or Electra

if you want Co2 use the electra

if you want HPA use the VS3 (i don't think even an anti siphon tube is completely safe for the Vs3, if your gonna use it get HPA)

Not N.O.S., which by the way is a brand name (Nitrous Oxide Systems), N2 or nitrogen gas.

VS3 - HPA or N2, period. As far as I know, the warranty is void if you use CO2

Electra - CO2, HPA or N2, depending on what you use.

Angry Re: VS3 or Electra

to tell you the truth. I would choose the electra , the 06' . it has eyes, and the board is fine. its capped @30 bps. has a wrap around grip, which is very nice. Co2,HPA,or N2 ready right out of the box.

[Rant and Rave]
there's more ups for the Regular Spyder Frames than the Vs frame series.

like springs for instance, with the electra its just a drop in tune and go. for the VS its size springs up, cut your new springs to size, drop in , tune and go.

oh and the valve..I have a rocket valve in my electra, I'm shooting 280-300 fps @ <120 Psi with no shootdown.

VS has the balance valve..thats it. no other valve...sure you can put your cut springs, front block, real reg and a real asa on/off, and you can put a different striker and bolt in it..heck even a T board. with a 25 g switch and a delrin trigger..

the gun is still going to be the same, its still going to need that 200+ psi, and it's still going to feel the same. That valve is a weakness to the VS, because you can't swap it with a better one. nor are there any aftermarket brands (that i can find i have looked for one) that make valves for the VS. what I'm saying is that even with all the ups to it, its still the same performance wise, even with a different board.
[/Rant and Rave]


there's just way more options to go with the electra over the VS.

I tell ya what man as a suggestion , If I were you I would wait for the RS - RSX to come out..if you have the money, its definitaly going to be worth the wait.

My vs2 is running at 170 psi now. So they can go under 200 psi but just require a few nice ups and lots of shots need to be put through them.
