AsphyxiateHeart Sunday, December 14th, 2008
Period of
Product Use:
1 year
3 years
Products Used:
Diablo Wrath, Smart Parts Sp-1
Marker Setup: Smart Parts Ion Xe w/ BlackHeart board, Pure Energy HPA 88ci 4500PSI w/ remote coil, Special Ops Tactical Vest. Empire E-vents mask.
Blackheart Board is all there really is, but it isn't necessary, it helps greatly with battery life. Possibly an Apex barrel which will be my next investment.
Strengths: Speed, lightweight, Extremely reliable in all weather conditions.
Weaknesses: Lack of upgrades. (Which may be a good thing)
Review: I've loved my Ion ever since they day I pulled it out of the box. It has consistantly worked for me when all other guns have failed and even pulls through in the cold weather. The Xe version of the Ion makes it very simple to clean as well. I have taken this gun through rain, I fell in a sinkhole out in the swamp at Michigan's Hell Survivors field, and it rolled down an icy hill with me in the winter. This gun can take a beating and keep on ticking. It is extremely accurate as far as a paintball gun goes, and on a normal day I get no breaks in the barrel (except if I get a case of bad paint). The low pressure firing makes is very delicate on balls and makes it so you can even use cheap wal-mart paint and be accurate. (Though I don't, but I have when I first got it just to see.)
Conclusion: For scenario players and speedballers alike, This marker is reliable and will always be there when you need it. I reccomend it for all players, however don't expect to be fighting against a flat-line unless you pick up an Apex barrel for it. A good gun for players old and new alike.
