Review: I had bought this marker about a month ago from my local paintball shop for about $349.96. Being only $50 more than the stock Ion it is a very good deal. My ion came with a new drop-down that is very small so it doesnt even drop down very much, its more for looks. I did like the On/Off switch though which was very helpful, although some people dont need one.

The Jr. Freak barrel is a very nice barrel made by smart parts. Since it comes with a larger insert size it is very accurate. Deffinitly get other inserts over time and great your own stash, this way you will always have the most accuracy when playing with random paint from differant paintball courses.

The only problem I have with the gun is the feedneck. There are differant types of Ion Pro's so I will explain mine, its basically a twist clamp. Twisting it locks the hopper into place. It may be my hopper, but every so often my hopper will just fall off. I am writing this review because just today I was playing paintball in the woods behind my house in the snow. I was walking across a bridge made of wooden planks over a stream for safe crossing and my hopper just fell off. Right into the freezing cold water, thankfully not breaking my hopper. So beware of the twist feed! I would reccommend buying a clamp feed to insure your hopper does not fall off.
Conclusion: A very good high-end marker for only a little over $300. Cheap, Accurate and a good marker if used correctly.

what hopper were you using? and you can solve that by roughing up the hopper with sandpaper/slashing it with a knife to help it stay in the feedneck.
