Don't rush it. There's prolly tons of them on your local field. Tell someone with one you'd like to get (fill in the blank) but you wanna shoot it first. Ask if you could shoot some of your paint through theirs. You'd get a better idea of the markers performance and feel if you shoot paint through it -

make sure you use your paint.
also, respect their equipment. If you go to any field usually people will let you try their gun, but dont run off with it. usually people are very nice and respectful, but if someone says no dont worry about it, and dont ask them/the group their with.

If your wanting to spend a few extra bucks, the PM6 is a huge step up IMO. you can get them for around 250 just like STRIKEFIRST said.
Check out Our BST. I know theres at least one there. check it out!

Well I just got back from my local paint shop. The bodys on these guns are beautiful! Now the stock trigger and frame looks like it was made out of recycled plastic! Is the UL frame made out of the same material?

And yes the PMR did feel alot better in my hands then the SLG. So thats next on my list of guns. I did also notice the SLG has HUGE travel before it hits the trigger switch. Thats something I didn't like on the SLG and the size isnt all that different. Now I do have to say if theres one thing spyder is good at is the material used in the frames. Yes it might be heavier but i love the feel of it.

I got home and held my VS3 and it feels alot better then my Ion, autococker, and the protos I held today.

The UL frame is metal, and IMO worth the cost although it's not a performance upgrade. However, don't be fooled by the looks of the stock frame - it's VERY durable and strong. You won't break it!

Dragon is absolutely right on the color thing. I almost got an olive after I bought my black one (they didn't have any other color at the time I bought mine. Just black.) and it's a goldish color - not olive.
