Upgrades:
New feed neck, probably use a lighter hopper like a Vlocity Jr and a light tank
Strengths: So freakin accurate and fairly fast
Weaknesses: It's an ion mostly, a heavy one with a heavier tag
Review: I took this thing out of the pro shop and shot a hopper plus a little more. The stock barrel is sick, I loved how accurate it was and hit wonderfully down range with an incredibly tight patten. What you will like- It's fast enough for the average pb player, it's very accurate, and I didn't chop while shooting so I'm sure you'll like that. The all metal body and frame is strong and durable. It's attractive as well. What you won't like- For 400 bucks, you are getting a nice up'd ion, a heavy one, the all metal construction makes it pretty heavy compared to its less expesive brother, It has the same board as the original ion with a few convenient upgrades that would make me choose it over an ion for the 200 dollar difference.
Conclusion: It's an incredible gun, great price, I would recommend that you personally test it yourself and compare it with like guns (the PMR or a Mini perhaps), I myself tried all three and chose the PMR because of the weight and speed I got with the PMR as well as it's maker's reputation, I thought I was getting more for my money and I did. The guys with the 1200 dollar guns might want to pick this up as a very nice backup. I do recomment that anything you buy that is attatched to the gun be the lightest one you can find since the gun is moderately heavy. It almost got a 7 for being too close to an ion and its weight, but I'll give her an 8 for it's accuracy and consistency.

The Epiphany is 6oz heavier than an ION. Why does everyone make it sound like the gun is made from pure lead. No offense to you, I still liked the review.

6 oz is almost half a pound, I do agree with you though, although the extra weight is all in the body of the gun, so it feels much heavier in one part of the gun.
