Go with the tippmann. My local pro shop owner saz that he sees more spyders for repair then he does the higher end more sensitive guns. The only reason to buy one is to turn it into a super spyder.
I have never played with a pro/carbine but i have played with people that do and they swear by them.

I definately agree. I'm not going to rip into the Spyders, but you'll definately have less problems with the Tippmann.

Defiantly go for the Tippmann. It might not have the speed of the Spyders but it defiantly makes that up in reliability.

I agree with Alienbow13: My local pro shop owners says he works on alot more spyders than tippmanns. Go fo the tippmann.

tippmann spyders=trash
98% of ion owners think ions are better than any high end gun. If you would like to bonus ball these idiots put this in your sig.

Well, I would say get the procarbine no matter what you play but spyders are more speedballish, while Tippmanns are more woodsballish.

I would say go for the Pro/Carbine if you want to play woodsball.  Then look into the pen spring mod, because I hear that the trigger pull of the P/C is VERY heavy.  If you plan on doing both, go for the 98c.  It's dependable and can be upgraded to a high end tourney marker.  It has a lot of upgrades to fit your needs.  If you play only speedball I would deffinetly get the 98c and upgrade it to your needs.

EDIT: By the way welcome to the forum.

I've used and abused my P/C for 5 years and still shoots like it's right out of the box. It's great for milsim mods (if you're creative enough) and an excellent woodsball marker.
