Rock for reliability.
Ion for throwing, no need to waste a good rock.

Rock owns. You can actually "eliminate"(hahaha) someone with a rock, and not always an Ion...

Wow! has peoples experience with ION's been THAT bad?
I have one and the only problems I've had were my fault.
But then again, I don't play speed ball (not bashing, just saying) so my requirements aren't as stringent.

I don't own an Ion and never have, but there are worse guns out there. Other than the fact that you basically get ripped off pricewise because you still have to throw a bunch of upgrades in it, it is still not the worst gun on the market. And if you look around at the field its mostly little kids using them, or at least it is at my field, they don't know any better. So I say play and let play, are they really bothering you that much?

And let he whom has never been hit by an Ion throw the first stone... and if you haven't, you're not playing a lot of recball because there are a ton of them out there.

To all the people who ask me what gun they should get, I always tell them to pick up a used Ion or new Vibe if they are close to your max budget. There really isn't a whole lot in that price range. Seeing that they would have gone to Wal-Mart and paid more for a mech Spyder package at Wal-Mart, I'd say it's not a bad decision. The only upgrades you *NEED* on an Ion would be the feedneck. It's capable of ramping and semi out of the box. What else do you need?

I dont se why every1 rips on ions i got an Ion XE and it shoots, fine i havent upgraded anything after 5 months, it still shoots like the day i opened it AND it seems to get more accurate every time i use it B)

and if you're wondering why i havent upgraded it its because im getting a PM8 in a couple of weeks B)

Ok, honestly, if anyone came up to you and said here, you can have either the rock, or the Ion, EVERYONE would say Ion. I am definetly not a fan of the Ion, but a free paintball gun!? Come on, you gotta take it.
My sig was edited / removed because it was not within the rules. Images used in signatures are to be less then Width of 600px, and height of 160px.

My text was too big.

:angry: Why are people saying rocks are effiecient and more accurate? unless your chuck norris i dont think using 1 rock will be able to take out the other team.

i mean ciome on, the ION is a solid gun, admitedly im selling mine but thats for a PM8 so im allowed :lol:

but iv used the Ion xE for months and its never missed a beat, never leaked, never needed any maintanence. all in all its a good gun for beginners so dont knock it.
