About Spyder .50 Cal.
The Spyder .50 Caliber paintball brand was started in 2010 to introduce a smaller, lighter and more efficient product line by reducing the standard .68 Caliber paintball to this new .50 Caliber size. All related equipment is smaller and lighter than .68 Caliber gear like the marker, loader, tank and paintballs but is capable of delivering almost twice the volume of ammunition. Players will be inclined to carry more paintballs and enjoy the game longer.
This all new reduced size Spyder .50 Caliber paintball creates a smaller ammunition which means greater accuracy and efficiency, less mess, less impact and less cost for the consumer. Length of time spent on the field is increased because players do not have to reload their pods/tubes or tanks as often.
Since the paintball has less mass the energy carried during impact even at 300 feet per second is tolerable and less likely to cause excessive bruising of the skin. Impact energy at 300 feet per second is rated at approximately 5 joules compared to 13 joules from a .68 Caliber paintball fired at the same velocity.
