Are you kidding me? He tanked Big Bang Impact and ended up with nothing more than a broken arm. What is Feitan's puny little umbrella-lance going to do? And the chains - Uvo was complaining about the nen in those chains. Kurapica wouldn't even need chain jail. He'd just whip lash the hell out of Feitan. If the chain so much as brushes him in the shoulder that's probably his whole arm gone.
Chrollo is the wildcard. He has potentially all sorts of interesting and nasty conditional abilities with weird status effects. It could see him shrinking the chains with fun fun cloth (then probably realizing that they're conjured Nen - that is, assuming he didn't notice with Gyo from the beginning).
even with feitans speed if hes hit once by the regular chains hes probably toast, and kurapika showed great range , in fact impossible range with those chains
i believe several people on this board believe kurapika is weak for some reason
the dude is a flat out monster
Wow!! Slender build Kurapicka was faster than the Hulking Uvo he's sure is some speedster. So speedy he even caught the Spiders leader and could have killed him.
Lol Chrollo's dialogue of Uvo's recklessness when fighting Conjurer's; Nor does an unsuspecting hotel black out slowing Chrollo down mean nothing to you.....Kurapicka was never strong enough to kill the Spiders head on.
He plans and plots and maneuvers......Ya Act like the spiders are gonna sit there and get wrapped up in a chain. Ya act like everybody ain't read the same manga were Kurapicka's knew he couldn't approach them directly.
Kurapika is 15 and?? we're not guaging his potential or debating how strong He can become. Kurapika was faster and smarter than Uvo and had a hatsu designed to defeat his whole crew, but more specifically if he can't beat it no one in his crew can..Kurapika's powers are Plot Induced.....Stupidity.
Because what togashi wrote shows that kurapika Made uvo his little bitch, and chororo looked like a lost little puppy wrapped up in kurapikas chains
kurapika had mercy and that is the only reason chororo lived, kurapika managed to kill two spiders and render the boss unable to use nen (for a while anyway)
And all of this with 6 months of nen training
kurapika > the spiders, and its not even close
you sound like you have a personal grudge or pis plot induced sadness
because togashi made kurapika a beast
I think people must have forgotten that according to Neon's prophecy, 6 of the Spiders are supposed to die and it's not clear if they were able to kill Kurapika in the process. Most likely not because Kuroro was told to seek the aura remover while going east, and we know he didn't find someone that could've removed aura from a dead person. Kurapika is supposed to annihliate the Spiders. He's so overpowering that he can afford to make his abilities suck and still dominate. Do people not pick up the fact that Chain Jail sucks as an ability intended to kill? As Shalunark pointed out, all you have to do is make chains paralyze on touch (much easier condition), and then he can just kill the guy while they're paralyzed and then move on to the next one. Unbreakable chain that forces zetsu is massive overkill, probably because Kurapika intended to capture the Spiders alive and question them. Otherwise he can just Chain Jail someone, punch them in the head and instantly kill them (a guy in Chain Jail can't move and is in Zetsu, so no possible way they survive that), and then repeat.
The Spiders have to be caught by CJ for their fates to be sealed. Kurapicka Caught Uvo in CJ due to outsmarting him and outwitting him during combat by misleading his Nen category..When that happened he already used IN on his CJ chain and connected it to Uvo......Togashi screws Uvo into not using GYO so Kurapika got a free sample on how CJ is going to work once he captures them.........Don't ignore this fact because it is a Fact this is backed up by Chrollo explaining how and why Uvo would lose and he lost exactly the way he explained.....If you ignore this fact you are just heavily biased towards Kurapika.
The Prophecy was specific on how they died just that they died. But it was pretty clear Kurapicka was picking them off. And Hisoka was trading their abilities for Kurapick'a cooperation in helping him have an audience with the Boss.

you obviously have something against kurapika, and you cannot accept that he is better than the spiders, if a 15 year old boy killing two members and disabling the boss, (with plenty of chances to kill him if he wanted to) doesnt prove he is better to you, then you are obviously biased

That question would be easier if Kurapika goes up against a spider now. Kurapika had the advantage of suprise and deception. He fooled Uvogin into thinking he was different nen type which led him into lowering his guard. Would that work now given they know all about it now? If kurapika went straight up against Feitan would it be so one sided? Not so sure. The spiders are all realy good nen users so I wouldn't put it past them to be able to avoid it in a straight up fight.
And little minor thing, Kurapika is 17, mostly like 18 by now.
Christ let's assume Uvo knew the chains were conjured so now he puts up Gyo. Well great, then Uvo goes 50% and Kurapica curb stomps his back and attaches his chains anyway. It wasn't even In that did him in.
In fact the whole thing doesn't make sense. If the chains were attached at that stage, then the whole smokescreen trick shouldn't have done squat. Kurapica could've just yanked him out of the smoke and immediately activated Zetsu. His stupid ability would be more acceptable, and the entire sequence would make more sense, if the zetsu effect could only be activated after the target is wrapped up in the chain for a period of time.

its his own fault for being to stupid to realize at that point, in the car that he could not use nen
if he was better at analyzing the situation and his opponents nen ability he could have went into the fight with kurapika already knowing about chain jail
its his own fault for not breaking it down and realizing it when he was captured initially
