The different spring tensions let you tweak the gun. An example would be on a cold you would want to use the heavier spring to get the velocity up and vice versa on a really hot day you might want to use the black spring. The striker springs let you control how hard the striker hits the valve. The valve springs let you control how long the valve is open and how much gas is let through.

valve open longer=more air to the bolt so you can lower operating pressure (with an inline reg)
valve open shorter=extreme measure to reduce psi/fps in an un-regulated gas flow

i believe all spyders use the same spring kit. i think, (someone correct me if I'm wrong) but i have a mr1 and the springs look the same on the striker, but a little different on the valve, it is shorter. i probably just made this more confusing then it is, sry hopefully one of guys that have been around here longer will have a better answer
