Products Used:
ive played on the field with almost every marker made. and most of them like any other had some upgrades to fit what the customer wanted. the ion razor out of the box is most likely the best value out there for $250.00 bucks it rocks and with a few upgrades it's as fast and worthy of any high end marker...even better!!
Marker Setup: ive built 4 razors this month alone and all have the same setup. i milled the frame to fit the ion warrior wave trigger. i found most after market triggers wont fit do to the 90degree grip frame. the trigger wont swing.. then a virtue board installed,ez-button,cp razor drop,cp/onnoff, CCM no pro feeder neck, cp 2piece 16", 68/4500, z-board eggII cut down so the hopper sets on the back strap of the marker. the lowest hopper to marker i know of.and then a set of hybrid grips..this is the fastest setup ive ever seen and most reliable

Upgrades:
if you want to have a great time. leave it alone.BUT if you want it to be as on the edge fast as it can be...use the setup i described above. its autococker quiet and ego/dm6 fast........... the accessories just happen cause you will want to make it yours and accessories are the only way to make it yours dm6 or ion it wont matter!
Strengths: Light , Fast , Great feel , Nice finish and upgrades galore. no kick
Weaknesses: Tear down,magnetic trigger,barrel,feeder neck, on/off none
Review: Ok i got it out of the box. i looked it over and noticed first thing, its a very sexy hotrod like looks the markers finish was great. dust silver. i went ahead and tore it down cleaned it and regreased it.i put the barrel on, its ok installed the tank turned the marker on went ahead and dry fired about 20 shots. put the hopper on and checked out a few shots with the chrono 245/255.. the trigger return was to strong AKA" the magnet. for my likeing. and yes mine came with a clamping feed neck, i know most come with the factory feeder. now i noticed the feel was great. now ive got big hands so the trigger guard is always a concern. the guard had plenty of room for my gorilla fingers. the duck bill however was so close to the bottom of the marker i had trouble with the tank being in the way especially while running. targeting was easy . i like a longer barrel however it shot pretty good in its stock form . air eating wasnt to bad, it could be better with some adjustments and a QEV. then it happened the reg seemed to drop out and when started to adjust it the guage pegged out and ruiened it. now thats a set back so back to the chrono to set the fps it worked fine the rest of my day at around 295/300 fps.the next few months was fun to say the least with the razor as i upgraded it she just got better and faster.. and i noticed no first shot drop...I LIKE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Conclusion: the razor is in my opinion the best bang for your buck. i played last year with 2 ego's and a proto back up. this year ive done up 3 razors and i play tourni ball for the TEXAS "NTO" and we all shoot the razor's now . now the ion has surely knocked the bigballer $ wise markers for a loop. and the ion is like the harley davidson of markers. theres more upgrades by more company's for this marker. so you can buy a $1200.00 ego and still upgrade to your likeing. or spend $250.00 and up it to the max for a total of $500.00 and still have money for a tank, hopper, paint, and players fee's and still have lunch money...theres players that have the big money guns that say the ion is not any good. but its hard when youve blown all that cash and get smashed by a ion. its the player that makes the points not the marker its just one more part of the player package...play safe....
