BKO, Dark Shocker, Vapor B2k, 04 WGP Pro Stock, IR3 Angel
Dye Boomstick 12"
Shocktech micro drop
Halo b (fits in stock neck, take o-rings out)
Barrel.....Boomstick or ultralite
When I saw this gun I ordered it without even thinking twice. A Smart Parts gun for $285. I also have a Vapor B2K and a new 04 cocker but have been wanting a Shocker. This looked similar so I decided to try it.
So far I have played with it twice, At a team practice and yesterdays tourney. The first thing I noticed was the great feel. Its light and great at snap shooting. When I got on the field with it I was suprised at the range and accuracy it has. It seriously is almost as accurate as my cocker. My teamamte has a dark shocker, the Ion can send the same line of paint as the $1200 Dark Shocker.......shockers are still nicer though
At the tourney it was great. I did chop a few but it was because my boomstick kept coming loose. I noticed a little drop off with the stock reg but it was still very good. I was the only Ion at the tourney and everyone wanted to see and shoot it. Everyone was very suprised.
I personally think it is better then all ICD's including freestyle, better then Imps, but the Shocker is still the king.
I think that this is a great backup gun for anyone, even good enough to use as a primary. It doesn't feel cheap, the plastic shell is fine, don't let it be a turnoff.
Don't ever buy a BKO again......the Ion beats it in every area. It has even replaced my Vapor B2k.
Not a Shocker but the perfect backup for one. Gets a 9 because the Shocker is the only 10.
