Ok well I have a Ion and I have a chance to trade it plus $175 for a red Emag with ULE body and the newest software. I have never shot an Emag before so I need your opinion.

Trade
Or keep ion

Or on a totally different note I could sell the Ion, buy a 03 matte black cocker and save for upgrades over a long period of time.

go for the e-mag just because i am anti ion. and the emag blows away a ion
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.

Oh, I like your other idea. I am a huge fan and previous owner of an 03 vf cocker. I'd say keep it and up it over time.

The emag is 10x better than the ion. Trade it. The Emag is faster, and while it doesn't have eyes,  it has level 10, which, IMO, is better.

You could always trade for the emag, sell it for more. Take the money and buy the autococker, and have alittle extra for upgrades.

ok now why is the e-mag better then an ion...i have a mag...i dont hate make i love mine but give him reason why....now this is my list....

 

mag(not e-mag)cons-

only get 600 shot out of a 68 3k tank

upgrade are alot of cash and not every proshop carries them

in my hyperframe you can not adjust the tirgger pull

if you want somthing done on it most likly have to send it away(seeing you are new to them)

pros-

reliable

doesnt break balls(lvl 10 bolt)

same size as a ion( dont know about e-mag)

can shoot fast...

easy to take care of

 

ion pros-

break beams eyes- no chop

17bps cap

trigger adjustable

light

not bad on air

cheaper

cons

people claim the wiring bad

the internals are not that great

we truly dont know how reliable they are yet...

 

this is opion only

If you keep your ion get a better reg, like a karni reg.
BTW that efficiency that you get out of your regular mag isn't that bad... ideally you'd get 680 shots out of it.
