If you do end up getting one of those I suggest correcting your name.

Don't know much about this marker.  Owner of the local paintball store said he played around with one and said it was really quiet and priced at or around $300.  I'd consider picking one up as a decent backup for my A-5 (or a loaner for a friend to use), but only if I can get more info on it.

Haha Ions= aluminum POS. I used an Ion that of a kid on our team has and it was a POS. It had constant problems, the internal hoses blew it leaked every which way you could imagine the thing was just a worthless POS. Save yourself the trouble and don't waste your money.

scar, maybe your friend sucks at taking care of it, becasue every Ion i've shot has worked perfectly.

Granted there are always bad batches, look at omens, some never work..., but still, Ios are great.

Go to pbreview.com for more info on it

Been there done that. I've tried many Ions and so far they've all turned out to be a POS..I really don't think thats a coincedence it shows just how bad there. When the kid took it apart to try to fix it the thing look like some cheap plastic toy made in China. Those things are horrible I would take a E-99 over a POS ION.

Well I am willing to wager my Xtreme that you have only shot one ION, that or you are just a dumbass becasue one, they aren't plastic, only thing plastic *inside* an ion is the trigger, which can be changed.

Wow I think you've finally proven your own stupidty. The trigger is not the only thing thats plastic try the entire body. Also that reminds me the trigger is made of plastic it looked like SP cut a plastic spoon in half and glued it together. It feels like if you fart to loud the trigger will break. As I said already I have tried many IONS and they've all turned out to be a POS. Since this statement "plastic, only thing plastic *inside* an ion is the trigger, which can be changed." proves you have no idea what your talking about I would suggest you go climb back into the little hole you came from and don't talk if you don't know what your talking about. I have to wonder if you have ever shot or even looked at a ION. My sides are stilll hurting from laughing at your stupidity.

^^^Read it throughly jackass, he said inside the Ion. The body cover is on the outside. And who gives if the shell is plastic, then it doesn't scratch, is lighter, and can be made/sold cheaper. The Ion is a cheap, good preforming gun, and that's all it's meant to be, not some super gun.

I've had my Ion since 4 days after they came out. Some 10 cases through it now, and the only "issuse" it's ever had was the battery died, whcih happens on all guns. My trigger's never broken, reg hasn't blown up, noid hasn't crapped out, eye's havn't chopped, hoses havn't leaked, nothing. It sounds like you just have a blind hatred for them so you spew garbage to try and sour their reputation. Now my Ion is just a back up to my DM5, but a great back up it is, because I've always been able to count on it. Maybe you'r issuses with Ions, if you really have even used them, are rooted from the marker being smarter than the player. I find it assinine that you would **edited** about their hoses, when your beloved Timmy's ARE EXACTALLY THE SAME.

Stupid Ion Hater n00b!!!!!

JK, but I personally isnt a big fan of Ions. I just dont like the feel of it, but you discribed is some unheard of. Tons of people in this forum got Ions, never complained. I can only remember 1 thread made "Ion help" Outta 142 reviews on PBreview, it got a 9.4. Technically, the body, nor the trigger or plastic, but composite, which is used in the military for many items and equipment. Now Im sure its not military standard composite, but it pretty hard to make weak composite. Try PMing some of the members on the forum that accually own an Ion and see what they think. I really think you are just being ignorant.

You call the Eagle, Eagle does the rest.

count it.

I like the ion, its a great gun for entry level tourny players. It the best bang for for buck. Nothing beats it for 300$. The trigger felt funny, but that can be adjusted.

Except the Intimidatpr doesn't have a POS reg that constantly leaks, a POS hose that will randomly blow on you, A cheap vision system, A cheap noid a cheap trigger and all the other problems with it. Blind hatred huh..I think your just to blind to see just how much of a POS IONS really are. I'm not sourning thier reputation Im spreading the truth that they're trash. It seems your to ignorant to except the truth.
