Exclamation What we want Kingman to know about what we want in a new marker

Here are some subjects that I believe Kingman should address when constructing a new model of marker. Obviously, these are my opinions but feedback from everyone will go alot further. I know I'll miss something so please, leave intelligent suggestions and opinions if i do.
BTW...you can vote for more than one thing
Thanks.

Why change a good thing? Kingman has the low end/lowcost market by the horns, they have for a long time, why enter into a different market and have a higher end gun that noone will buy because "its a spyder...".

Personally, I'm for performance issues. Many people buy Kingman products for their ability to be "tweaked" to their liking.
All of the OS Kusa peeps know that I tweaked the crap out of my Esprit. All the mods I did to it were for performance, save one for cosmetics (removing the top of the vision window). We all know the rampant opinions of Spyders when we walk onto the field. I can say that I have changed quite a few minds and opinions with it...Bomberpilot07 did too (since he now owns it). Everything I did enhanced the operation of the marker and how it felt in my hands. I personally don't care what it looks like, so long as it acts the way I want it to.

Barron, yes they have the market by the horns...but it's human nature to strive to be better. Why settle for being "The Dollar Store" when you can be Macy's?

I agree 100% Druid but... the thing that one would fail to notice is the price increase that would be inevitable if the marker was a contender out of the box, Kingman makes their guns affordable by only supplying what is essential in a beginners gun. I too have had my fair share of modding spyders, and to me that is what make a spyder fun, I would never buy a higher end spyder because to me that ruins everything I believe a spyder should be.

i voted for lighter microswitch/trigger setup, because that makes the gun much better without any real extra cost to kingman. frankly, i dont realize why they havent put a lighter one in already. all the other stuff would cost to much for a low end marker. if you want that other stuff in your spyder, you can do it yourself, but most newbs dont want that.

I agree with barron. No one will want to pay for the price increase of a Spyder when guns like Ions are usually only a bit more..

Kinda true...but remember everyone's reaction to the "Tupperware" shell...how they hated it, blah blah. Then there was the "...you mean I hafta completely disassemble it just to lube the bolt?!?!?!!?......" fiasko. Well, here's the chance for Kingman's techs to come up with something original, innovative and give themselves the task of finding comparably inexpensive alternatives. Make them work for their money. Create a reasonably priced marker that performs awesomely, yet looks good to the envy of all...
