Default Is the Rodeo worth it??? MR1 or Rodeo

I have a spyder special edition now but the bottom line blew up in my face last night, so I am looking at maybe buying either a MR1 or a Rodeo. I dont like electronic triggers so I would like to stay with mechanical. I had my SE for a long time and it never gave me issues until a couple of weeks ago. I think it may be time for an upgrade. What do you think?

Default Re: Is the Rodeo worth it??? MR1 or Rodeo

it's really all personal preference ....

But the mains are ... are you willing to upgrade ??
... and are you willing to clean the gun properly ...

If your gonna upgrade ... go for neither .... go for a cheaper spyder... since all spyders are alike until their aftermarket parts show the difference ...

If you won't clean your gun ... get something cheap like a winchester ... so you don't have to worry about wasting your money ... or asking questions like ... "why won't my gun work" after 30 pounds of sand's poured down the chamber into the internals ...


But ... out of those two .. i personally like the Rodeo better than the MR1 ...

What would be a cheaper spyder to start out with and what mods would you do? I've played for alot of years, so cleaning and maintance isn't an issue.

He said he doesn't want an e-frame marker.

If you are definitely going to upgrade get a Xtra or Sonix (even used you can find them in B/S/T all the time), but I would still get the Rodeo. It is not that much more and you can wait a little on the big upgrades, like VA and Reg.

The Rodeo comes with a Reg, not s great one, but at least it has one. That way you can get things like a barrel and feedneck first.

OH and Welcome to the boards!!!

the rodeo is an awsome gun i have 2 and they are great the reg on them is a nice feature so u have time to upgrade other things before the reg and va but all spyders are basically the same so u could get a cheap one from b/s/t or a remanufactured and have extra cash for upgrades instantly its all preferance
