the trigger isnt a bad upgrade but before you upgrade it you should get a feedneck, better hopper (i recomend a vel jr), and a compressed air tank. you dont really have to upgrade the board unless you plan on playing in psp or something like that

ok first off the board is for the vs series markers
get a t board if you want to upgrade boards but it shouldn't be top priority

I would upgrade in this order
feed neck
hopper
barrel
tank

barrel is a very important upgrade on any spyder, all stock barrels suck. a j&j ceramic 14 or 16 would be good, I would get a spyder fasta 18v hopper, If you are just getting into the sport don't get too complex too fast the board upgrade is expensive, and doesn't make you any better just shoots faster. The stock board is actually pretty good, got 3 rd 6 rd burst and fully auto. I would get me a good barrel, feedneck and hopper, and get a good exp chamber if you are using co2, or upgrade to air. I have some barrels if you would like to purchase one, 20 for a 14 j&j ceramic. lmk

The barrel is alright for stock, but you will want a better barrel the stock barrel bore size is much bigger than most paintballs and you will get alot of curves, a j&j is much smaller and works better on most paint. get a feedneck and good hopper first or it won't matter what kind of barrel you got , you will be shooting slow because of gravity fed hopper, and the stock feedneck sticks the hopper up like 6 inches off the gun, makes it hard to hide behind bunkers and have your gun in the ready position. once again i recommend the fasta 18v led hopper it works great and is easy on batteries. It will feed faster than that gun will ever shoot. And I do have a 14" j&j i will sell for 20. and the part of it saying tournament barrel. Well spyder tl stands for tournament level, and it isn't even close. It is better than the stock barrel on some spyders but not what you will need to be consistant with shots. lmk if you want the barrel.

Good upgrades get a set of sticky dye grips action village had some I got one on ebay for .99 and 9.99 shipping also get a stronger spring don't use the low presuure one though it will chop balls like crazy it is to strong those upgrades will keep you up with ions I have people tripping when they realize I am shooting a Pilot. Find a good paint to to go with your barrel and you will jam
