Smart Parts Ion
12 inch Freak Barrel kit
Higher max rate of fire
Easy to program
Some people think it's hard to program the modes.
This is one of the best upgrade boards out for the ion if not the best. I got it from a local shop and when I got home i took it out for a test drive. The new higher rate of fire is amazing compared to the original board. There are also a lot more programs in the balckheart for you to program. When i first tested it it was good but when i unplugged the nitrous, my bottle only had 1000 psi left when five minutes ago it was at 3000 psi. I looked in the manual and found out how to reprogram it, which i think is exremely easy. Some people say that the manual is confusing but they are probably newbie's because i think it is pretty strait forward. But anyway, the dwell on the new board was up all the way making it very poor with gas efficiency. I am extremely impressed with this new board from smart parts. They have really gone out of their way there to try and make their guns better. I am mostly impressed with the number of programs you have control over with the new board.
I would recommend this product to anybody who has an ion and is thinking about paintballing a lot. If you don't go paintballing a lot, don't waste your money on this board. I would definitely get it if you are thinking of going to be a tournament player, or just go paintballing a lot for fun. Please post if you found this review helpful or not.
