Default Which Gun Is better for me?

I am a beginner and have only been paintballing a few times, but I'm extremely fascinated by it and love going. I have decided to invest in my gun, so and i narrowed it down to 2 choices,

1) 09 Spyder Pilot w/ Eyes $164
2) Spyder MR1 Sniper Set $135

Whixh one would be better for someone like me?

Thanks,
Eriizzle

There both really good guns to start with but what do you enjoy playing more woodsball or speedball or both equally?

dirt doesnt really matter for a marker as long as you keep dirt out of the breech. the eyes will avoid chops but you should definately invest in an electric loader

So, to my understanding, the guns are equally good to start off with?

pilot = electronic with eyes
MR1 = mechanical with no eyes
(eyes prevent chopping) the MR1 is slower but the internals are practically the same

^Yeah that. I would get a Pilot but be sure to invest in an electric hopper. You can find used Halos on PbNation.com for under $50.
