Get the bushy. I got mine in April and it hands down  rocks, and it will out-perform the ion anyday. I can't believe how low the prices have gotten on them. In March they were 500 dollars, now they're only 300 dollars. That's an unbeatable price.
I Have a B2K and a 98c.

I like them both. I'd say Bushy though.

98% of ion owners think ions are better than any high end gun. If you would like to bonus ball these idiots put this in your sig.

That's spam, my friend.

Check eBay.

Those sites don't guarantee you a gun-they just use a ladder, so that say 4 people pay $1400, the first person to pay gets their gun.

Basically, I wouldn't trust them.

I'd suggest trying them both out. Either way, you'll need to get some upgrades, but probably more for the Ion. However, B2k4s are going for about $70 more than an Ion($320 rather than $250).

Shoot 'em both, then decide.

what ever fits you best ion- small light fast / bushy- a little heavyer but wont need as many upgrades in  the long run ions also have alot of cutom mods that can be done to them whereas the bushy does not
arguing on the interent is like running in the special olympics, even if you win you are still retarded

It's a stock barrel-it's a requirement that they suck.

That said, my autococker stock barrel was suprisingly accurate.

Like I said, shoot them, decide then. They'll be pretty equal in speed, it's mostly about feel.

"Have you looked inside a bushy,   there are toooooo  many wires. any ion could kill any bushy in speed, accuracy,and range.We stopped carrying them a week after they got in, selling them at $199.00 just to get rid of them." - my proshop owner

Your shop owner is funny.

Omg there's too many wires in a B2K; no more than what is in an Ion: Eye wires, Noid wires, Battery wires. Wah.

Bushys are capped at what, 36 bps, and an Ion is capped at 17 bps? I fail to see how an Ion could win in speed.

Accuracy has very little to do with the gun; all that really affects accuracy is good paint, a stable air source, and a barrel that is clean and fits the paint. Again, an Ion is not going to be more accurate than any other gun, provided it suffices the points above.

The whole range thing really makes me giggle. All paintball guns (with the exception of a Tippmann or Cocker with a Flatline) shoot roughly the same distance, provided both have the same velocity.

I would like to personally slap your local shop owner. He is a hard core moron.

Have a lovely day.
