Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
The Foehn from Deadlywind is a fully sculptured, 4-axis CNC milled aluminum body "shell" for the Ion. We start with 6061 aluminum and carve it all up! Rid yourself of the plastic jinx, for good.

The Foehn body shell includes the aluminum mainbody, aluminum tail plug (all black), and SS retaining screw. The 10-32 retaining screw can also be used to bolt your choice of "snatch grip" to the tail of the body, if desired.

Weighing in at 5.3oz, it is aerodynamically designed for a low coefficient of friction to help you move faster on the field.

We removed more material on the underside of the body than the stock Ion plastic shell, so you should have more room to mount your QEV without cutting or trimming the body*.

* Depends on the size/type of QEV
Product Availability 
The DeadlyWind Foehn Body Kit is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.

Review: Pretty straight forward review. Ordered the body direct from DeadlyWind using paypal and it was shipped almost immediately. Big props to them on the shipping; I think I had the body kit in my hands 3 or 4 days after I ordered it! Installation is very easy, especially if you've already pulled the gun apart for any cleaning and maintenance. It is a direct replacement for the stock body...no mods required.

Basically it is an aesthetic upgrade. I don't see any performance increase from it. The weight increase is neglible. I can't tell the difference.

The anno work is very nice and the look of the gun is completely different now. Actually it's quite funny because the shape of the DeadlyWind body makes it look even more like a Shocker so it throws a few people for a loop when they first see it.
Conclusion: Quality product, fast shipping, great looking upgrade. The price is stiff when you consider $100 upgrade on a $300 gun but worth it if you're not into the plastic look. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and recommend it to anyone who wants to drastically change the look of their ION.
