Products Used:
Tested other ions - almost same performance, but less comfortable and worse air usage IMHO
Marker Setup: ANS Razor Ion, Egg, full Freak kit, Black CP rail and red CP on/off, 45/3000 tank
On/off - any good gun needs an on/off, it's much simpler and easier on you.
Barrel - stock is okay, but a decent barrel kit helps
Strengths: -Comes with QEV, clamping feedneck, great trigger, and 90 degree frame. Great upgrades for Ions.
Weaknesses: - Regulator isn't the best in the world
- stock barrel can be bothersome
Review: Overall the Razor ion is an excellent buy. I personally hate the looks of standard ions, so while I began looking for a decent marker for both speedball and woodsball, i didn't focus much on Ions. I had shot them, played with them, and they seemed fine, but I still could not get over the plastic outer shell. I saw this, bought it, and was very impressed. Unlike most ions, i feel like i'm picking up a very durable gun. Don't get me wrong, i never saw people having problems with other ions, but this one FELT more reliable. The trigger, frame, feedneck, body, and QEV are upgrades almost every ion owner grabs soon after purchase. Why waste that money (unless there's a certain look you want) when you can buy almost the entire package together? It does bug me that they could not put a little more effort into a decent barrel and throw on a good asa. Maybe not an on/off, but no stupid duckbill. Performance wise, it's great for intermediate players, and if you're just beginning speedball it'll help you learn the basics and show you the ropes...
Conclusion: I recommend this over other Ions because of the value there is in it. The Razor Ion is a great buy, and perfect for intermediate players beginning speedball or recreational players who love both styles. A great start into the electro guns for any player.
9 out of 10
