Period of
Product Use:
Only tested4 of 4 people found this review helpful.

3 years
Products Used:
Regular Ion. Would take ion over pro anyday.
Marker Setup: SP Ion
CP Micro Drop
ST Clamp feedneck
SP 360 Qev
PMI 72/3k Steel Tank
Halo B
Dye C6 Gear
Full or Jr Freak Kit, Qev, Trigger of some kind, different asa, and a clamp feedneck
Strengths: Basic upgrades
Weaknesses: Read Review
Review: The basic idea of the ion pro is just awsome. Has a feedneck, asa w/drop and freak jr barrell. But that's my problem with the marker. The Asa just froze my o-rings in a snap (yes i was using hpa) the feedneck isn't a clamp, (but i saw some with clamps and those a q-locks which are good but i prefer a CCM, or a NDZ one over that), and the Freak jr barrell is way too oversized. (.693)

If smart parts really wanted to impress me they would have installed a qev, a trigger (anything but the Shocktech one), a smaller bore freak jr. barrell, an asa from Custom Products or NDZ, and Hybrid grips ( the grips aren't all that bad but they could use some).

in my opinion this marker is ok for the people who don't know the basics for upgrading, but if you do buy a regular ion and go from there
Conclusion: Well i would say if you don't know how to upgrade the essentials then get this, otherwise go with the regular ion and buy the essential upgrades
7 out of 10

dude u know your paintball Paradox seeing as the Ion Pro comes with a freak jr stock... hence the black barrel saying freak when u open the box....

He was talking about the Freak Jr. insert kit, not the barrel itself.
