once your learn the stock trig, get a new one, upgrade to a barrel, UL's are pretty decent, longbows and snappys are the best. If you cant fire 17 BPS, no real need for a new board. get detents either orange or kila's. Halo or Eggo for hopper. I got the reg becasue im a low pressure freak, thats also why i got the Techt L6 bolt-lighest most efficeient on gas. but in all honesty i played through 2.5 cases of paint with stock ion and i was really impressed not one ball chopped or downed gun.
Strengths: ROF(with new trig)
Weaknesses: The stock parts are not gas efficient
Review: solid elec marker. you can get thrown into a competitve speedball match and actually compete with the ion. the upgrades are for more serious tourny players and who know what they are doing. if your a guy ust starting out play with the ion and get to know its stock parts, then upgrade once you have the cash and experince. The accuracy is decent with the UL but the rof in most cases can make up for it. It comes with a .693 freak but i never used it...not really a fan. maintence and customibility are also strong factors that make the ion pro a solid marker
Conclusion: I got it as a trade and am very pleased. nice thing about the ion and most elec guns is that u can take it in the woods, scenario, or speed ball, but somtimes with guns like a5, or 98's you are limited to the type of games you can play. Smart parts makes solid products as long as there is paintball there will be smart parts. the more advanced players should check out the nerve.

I would expect you of all people to be a Q.E.V. freak. After all, they allow you to reduce, dwell, and input pressure, making your gun faster cycling, and lower pressure. To be honest, when it comes to Q.E.V's I don't think you know what you're talking about.
