Review: I was as skeptical as everyone else. I wanted to see the "ION on Roids." Everyone said it would be better to upgrade an ION. People are haters!

My goodness this gun is sweet. I paid $350 for the gun itself. This is the best mid-level gun with high end performance. The body is magnesium, the trigger and grip frame are completely redone. People say big deal but when you're carrying it and rocking the trigger it makes all the difference in the world. I haven't changed the stock Freak Jr because the reach is enough and the accuracy is perfect. My game has improved tremendously and it's because the gun has proved itself to me and I have a great deal more confidence.

I'm not going to list the upgrades and costs needed to get an ION to an epiphany level because I think enough posts have been made that prove it is more costly.

Note: Do not add a QEV, current QEVs cannot handle the operating pressure of this gun.
Conclusion: Do it...buy it...you know you want to.

No product deserves a 10 out of 10 so...
I have to.

I am curious as to what you would have to add to an ion to make it an epiphany. And if you can get more than 17 bps with a stock board.

To your first question, an on/off asa,firebolt,new adjustable fire chamber,Freak barrel,roller bearing trigger,regulator and solenoid to handle the higher pressure(plus the obvious,body kit and grips if you want). To your second, the answer is no. The board is pre-set at 17BPS.

Ticocuban,

Great review. Good add about the QEV, SP told me the same thing when I inquired about one for my gun.
