So the forums are slower AND I'm having probs with my browser. I'm having this same problem on a couple of other forums and I don't know how to fix it. If anyone's got any suggestions... I'm using the latest version of IE and Firefox doesn't like being on my laptop. I've got these forums cookies authorised aswell.

I hope you can get back on them sometime. I'm on other forums and it seems almost all the decent aluminum killers have stopped doing what they'd done so well.

That's not the news I was hoping for but kinda what I'd thought was up. Again it's kinda the same story on other forums.

Just found out it's IE9 that's not liking these forums I frequent and I cant downgrade to IE8 because Windows 7 can only use IE9. It's also likely that it's causing the conflict with Firefox so I'm just going to have to put up with it.

I haven't tried Google Chrome. Is it good?

google chrome is fast but it's quite a bit different than IE. I used IE all my life and when i switched it took a little while to get used to but i love it now.

Chrome is what I use, when I'm not using Opera on a slow network.

Hmmm, I have Windows 7 and am on IE8 and Firefox with no issues whatsoever. That's odd it says you cant use it...

ASU sent out an email, shortly after IE9 was released, telling all student not to upgrade or download IE9 because there had been many reported issues with ASU's site and IE9 users.

I just installed 7 on 3 machines and all came stock with IE8, so you should be able to downgrade to IE8 no problem.

How to downgrade from IE9 to IE8

I've used the forum recently with IE8 (on a Windows 7 machine), the most recent version of Firefox and Safari (on both Win 7 and OSx machines), all work fine.

Thanks for that. I tried it but now neither version of IE works. They keep crashing. I did, however, manage to get Firefox working again. This forum, and others, work just fine now.

So back on topic I guess

I vaguely remember the VS/RS series being released just before I took my break from paintball and now it looks like they're gone. The valve & striker setup was different on them IIRC. Longer valve and shorter striker I think. Now there's the MR series. Do they use the same valves and strikers as the VS/RS series? And what's up with the Classic series? Do they use the same lower internals as the VS or are they the same as the old 'slim' internals?

the MR and classic series uses the same regular internals i believe the new pilot and electra have a different valve system in them though

There is the regular old Spyder valve, the Eco Valve and Balance Valve. I couldn't tell you exactly which ones are in each Spyder. I think the Balance Valve was a VS/RS thing though.
