THE ZACHARIAS Sunday, June 17th, 2007
Period of
Product Use:
3 months
3 years
Marker Setup: SP Epiphany
Freak barrel
XSV VLocity
Pure Energy 45ci/4500psi tank w/ DYE C7 cover
Strengths: Fast
Weaknesses: Feedneck
Review: This is a great marker. It makes a little more noise than some markers 3x the price, but a different barrel will fix that. Everything I upgraded on mine was purely personal preference. Some players may want a small drop forward or a new feedneck, but it will be about their own comfort, which cannot be addressed with a mass produced marker, and is not a negative on the marker or the company. Luckily, theres a huge number of parts for the ION that will fit, so theres no limit to what you can do to it.

Unfortunately, the ion virtue board will NOT work with the Epiphany, so we will just have to wait for virtue to make a board for it. Again, this isn't really a negative; just informational so you don't go out and assume that EVERY ion upgrade is compatible.

It will work with a high pressure tank, but a low pressure tank will reduce the strain on the internals and the regulator. I had a problem with my Virtue QEV leaking, but it turned out to be my fault.
Conclusion: Without a doubt, the best marker in its price range. Awesome out of the box. Lots of available upgrades/ alternate parts. Good enough for the pros.

1. The lp tank will not put any less stress on the marker since the reg adjust the psi of the air going into the marker
2.Lp is only meant for angel after the IR3 and yes there are a few markers here and there that can run off of lp but really most markers are going to run Hp
3. Your lp tank will have horrible drop off rates as well as bad consistency and recharging rates unless you do some major mods.

freak jr is the stock so the new barrel has to either be a freak or a dye precision cause the freak jr is pretty good itself
