It depends on what you think of them. I'm actually considering downgrading from my angel to an ion again, because I like them that much.

Anyway, back on topic, I would just play with the setup you have for awhile, find out what you like and don't like about the marker, read the upgrade info on these forums and at www.nicksdistortion.com, and then decide for yourself on your next upgrades.

You have to be kidding me, you have to be the most sp biased person i have ever seen. I don't discount that ions are good guns but from a angel to an ion is just really stupid. Ions are good guns, but can you tell me why you would ever want to downgrade from a angel to an ion, unless it was a older model angel.

Personal opinion:
I'd say drop the remote for a better hopper such as a halo or a reloader b. If not a better hopper then get a better feedneck such a q-lock or a CCM. Mabye change to a 68/4500 instead of the 72/4500, also pick up a tank cover and mabye a new ASA.

Well seing as your user name is tippmann balla, i see why such a bias opinion. So go post in the tippmann forums..

You have a nice setup, but as previously recomended i would also the ditch the HP remote line. Also some nice upgrades would be a Board,QEV, and a bolt. It all preferance so do what you want.

I would try to sell that 72ci tank and get a smaller tank. I can see why you are using a remote, as 72ci tanks are pretty overwhelming on a gun. So if can get a smaller tank, then get it (maybe sell your 72ci), ditch the remote and go own people.

I like them.... so what? My angel has broken so much more paint than my ion ever did. Besides, if i trade i could make the ion guy add a bunch of gear or whatever. Besides i might get something other than an ion, I don't know right now though.

ok back to the dudes question,

Smart Parts Q-Lock feedneck *sooooo much better than stock*
CP Reg would be nice
new trigger helps increase firing rates, i sugest a shocktech or a NDZ
and i love the Smart Parts Max-Flo ASA but the CP ASA is nice as well
and the Dye Stick Grips are nice as hell,
these are my personal preferences
and finally if you want ur gun to rip, then go for the blackheart board

none are really necessary but they all are really good for the gun in their own way.

a t-board is better IMO, but there are lots of boards that are good. look under ion upgrades, then hit boards on the review section of the site to see your options.

Get a feedneck, on/off, and trigger if you don't like the stock one. That's enough to make the gun satisfactory, don't bother going much past that or else it really becomes pretty wasteful once you look back in a year at how much you've put into your gun.

Those 3 were the only things I thought actually HAD to be upgraded/replaced, honestly the rest is bearable enough.

yeah a tboard is great but my preference is the blackheart and a cp reg is a good investment because you could throw that on most guns nawt just the ion so if you wanted to get a beter gun later on then the cp reg will come in handy

that's a lot of pods... I can't figure out why you'd want 2 body kits but that's up to you. as previously stated, I would also ditch the remote and grab a smallter tank. you could probably get a straight up trade if you wanted.

hey di$, what kind of angel is it? I have a friend that might be interested.

The first thing I upped on my gun was the feed neck. Then the barrel. A nice barrel makes alot of difference. There is really no need to spend the money on a new board unless you play for money.

I don't get why people are saying get a smaller tank... 72/4500 isn't big... Its 4 ci bigger than a 68/4500... unless they are thinking its a 72/3000 steely...

Here's what I have on my ion
Clippard style QEV
TechT L7 Bolt
CP Roller trigger
Clamping feedneck
Freak kit (just because I had the kit already, I just needed an ion back)

I'm shooting at 110psi, 12 blinks of dwell, @ 270fps... Around 90psi for 250fps (indoor field by me limit)

Its THE quietest marker I've seen so far.... Almost silent...
Lowering the pressure and having a barrel with lots of effective porting are the 2 best ways of making it quieter....
