What's the difference

A shocker is a balanced spool, that was aimed at the higher end crowd.
Between the two, I believe the shocker is definitely better. Kinda like comparing a DM to a Proto, in that one is/was high end, and the other is/was low end.

The Ion is a blow-forward spool, meaning that the gas that moves the bolt back and forth is also the gas that fires the gun. In its stock configuration, the Ion is the more efficient of the two.
The Shocker is what's called a balanced spool, meaning that the air that fires the gun does not come from the same chamber as the air that operates the bolt. A stock shocker is more quiet and smoother of the two, but less efficient*
Now, if you had a Shocker with the Lurker Eigenbolt that was tuned properly, it would be more efficient than the Ion, or most other spools for that matter. (1500-2000 shots per 68/45, and yes, there's proof)
Edit: damn you, wookie!

Using a gun that's been hardly maintained and tossed from person to person more than a village whore is hardly a fair way to compare the marker.

it doesn't have the boomstick barrel, but, it does have a freak barrel and I'm not sure if it's the whole kit or not.
