seriously though, you'll be more happy with the Tippmann in this case.

Tippmann forum rule #1: Asking for the public to not do something is the surest way to have that thing done.
 
That said, I'd go with the X7. Spyders are more of a tinker-toy and a loaner than a main. And that's coming from a big Spyder fan.

Thats like asking should I go for the Ford or the Chevy on a Ford Forum.  If course we are going to say go for the tippmann...they are reliable, easy to tear down, many upgrades available etc.  I do like the Spyder rocking trigger though...not the gun.

Not always true.  alot of people here recommend many a marker over the tippmann.  personally out of those 2 though i would go with the tippmann.  i have never been a big spyder fan in general. 
Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...

But you do have to admit the X7 looks cooler.
 
Personally, my classic valved Automag is my favorite marker.

Yeah, im on the tippmann forum all the time, and im not a fan of them. In this case, get the X7. Itll be a better performing, main gun. They are just built better, and have many more options.

Tippmann v. Spyder

Tippmann more reliable  The most reliable paintball guns made
Tippmann much longer warranty
Tippmann many more mods and upgrades
Tippmann guns do not require special air fittings to change out parts or add drops
Tippmann repair parts are cheaper

Spyder lighter weight
Spyder some cheaper options on the low end
Spyder many more designs out of the box to choose from
Spyder not bad guns really.

I dunno, man. As tinker fodder, the Spyder is capable of so much more. Tippies have it for bolt on aftermarket though.
