Need some help, looking for a CHEAP light marker.
So my youngest daughter started playing paintball with me at my last event. And she is a tiny little thing. A week after the game she said her arm STILL hurt from carrying around the Tippmann 98 that I had her use...
I guess putting a 20 ounce Co2 tank didn't help with the weight...
It got me to thinking, I use mechanical markers, as they are cheap and reliable. Her 98 froze up on her once while playing, (weird since it wasn't that cold) but I need to get her something CHEAP that is much lighter. (as I have to buy a bunch of other stuff, and Christmas is coming). I can always just use the 98 again, but I figured I'd let you guys school me on low cost markers that would be much lighter for her to carry.
I have some old school markers, but they are pump, and that is too complicated. I need a low cost (something I can get off craigslist) that is LIGHT and semi auto but will work well in the cold, since we play in the fall/winter/spring, I don't really like markers with batteries, as it is just one more thing to deal with... Having straps so I can put a gun strap on it would be a plus.
Any ideas? I know nothing about paintball markers, other than the Tippmann's 98, and A-5's. I see spyders often at my field, but they are always leaking in the cold, so I stay away from them. I've seen some pro carbines, but don't know if they would be any lighter than the 98 she has now?
Any help would be appreciated. I have about $40 so far that I could use for this...

The new spyders are supposed to be light, that and a 9 ounce maybe?
The only place that a spyder could really leak from is a cup seal, or the gas lines, both are easy fixes. With a new gun those issues should not ever come up.
Switch her to a 9 ounce tank. They're dirt cheap and never run out of hydro.

If you're going for mechanical I'd look into the GOG eNMEy as its pretty light, can use Co2 and you'll be able to upgrade it to electronic if its ever necessary.

My wife uses a Piranha R6 with a 9oz. I got a 50/4500 to go with it too
