Smart Parts Ion w/ 14" Teardrop Barrel
Crossfire 68/4500 HPA tank w/ Empire tank cover
'07 Dangerous Power Fusion (Limited Edition)
HPA tank (if you don't already own one)
Weight (incredibly light)
Can't shoot through breaks
This is honestly one of the best guns I have used, either for someone who is just starting the game or a veteran player. It has a rate of fire of 25 BPS, anti-chop eyes in the gun's breach, and 6 different firing modes. No upgrades for the gun itself are needed; it's ready to go straight from the box. It already comes with a great trigger, clamping feedneck, a small drop for the tank, and a totally innovational on-off valve for the HPA connection. The price is also incredibly reasonable - I got mine from a local shop for $275. With a limited edition, other than different color choices, you get a lifetime warranty from Dangerous Parts, which I think is a great bonus.
The first day of using mine, however, I broke a ball (one out of 300 using old paint, not bad at all) and it shut the gun down. The Fusion just can't seem to shoot through breaks. This is easily mendable, however - pull the bolt's pin and slide it out of the back of the gun. You can then run your squeegee through the entire gun. That's right, you don't even have to remove your barrel (providing, of course, that your squeegee is long enough). Yet another neat touch that Dangerous Power has thought up and added to this already-great gun.
This is a great gun for anyone, especially new players or those who are on a tighter budget.
I havn't owned any other speedball gun other than the Dangerous power fusion
Stock Dangerous Power Fusion
Draxxus Pulse Loader
Pure Energy 68 4500 nitrogen tank
I think that the DP Fusion is good as it is, but i would recommend getting a new barrel, or a barrel kit, because it can get inaccurate sometimes when shooting.
Unique on/off air valve
Great stock board
I LOVE the DP fusion. Going from an A-5 was a big transition. I really enjoy having the ability to walk a trigger for once. I really like how it has a unique on off air valve. The bolt system is great. The oinly problem I have ever had with the gun was when playing in a scenario match, it was raining a little, and a ball was jammed in the marker. I couldn't un-jam the ball from the chamber, so I had to call myself out. It took me about 2 weeks to get the damn shell out.
I would highly recommend getting this gun. It is a good gun, and for a starter in speedball. It starts with 25 bps maximum, and it is extremely easy to walk. A great marker, for a reasonable price.
Egos are just plain cool, they perform better than the Fusion, but are also more expensive **EDIT** at this point in time, i'm sure you can find a used Ego6 that costs only a little bit more than a new Fusion.
The Freestyle I've used is effing amazing. Best gun I've ever used, so yeah, it performs better then the Fusion (but you better know how to tech one of these, or you're screwed; lot's of maintenance)
Fusion > Ion hands down. Fusion is a little more pricey, but with the amount of ups you're going to need to make your Ion decent, you may as well just get a Fusion.
-CP Rail, CP On/Off
New trigger if you don't own the LE version, possibly a new on/off.
And once Virtue releases its Fusion board, get that, too.
Very easy to maintain, great out of box.
Low resale value, not many upgrades **EDITED**, loud, and has a bit of kick.
-great out of the box
-fairly accurate stock barrel (Draxxus Blaze and Rec-Sport)
-well-made, very sturdy
-easy to maintain (just pop out the ram cap, wipe down, and lube up; also clean the regs every once in a while, look at the website below for tips on how to disassemble)
-not many upgrades **EDIT** so, i pretty much fail here. the Fusion does have quite a few ups going for it; aftermarket rams, bolts, regs. yeah, i'm a nub.
not sure what else to type, except if you have any trouble cleaning or teching a Fusion, go to http://www.fusionowners.org/forums/
This is an excellent startup marker. If you're new to the sport, and you want a great gun, or if you want a reliable back-up, get this.

If you don't have v2 board, get it. Same with RAPS
Accuracy with stock barrel(14in 2 piece)
Extremely Air Efficient
Little Heavy(2.5 pounds)
I am going to try and keep this short, simple, and to the point. I'm going to start off by telling you the only thing that I don't really like is its weight. Other then its fast, air efficient, and is on the cheaper side. Also try to stick with low weight barrel, hopper, and tank. GO BUY IT. TRUST ME
Honestly the stock barrel is fine, if you got a v1 maybe upgrade to a v2 board and personally a hyper trigger, RAPS is a nice upgrade as well
price compared to Proto matrix rail, looks, ram, and fast
Kick and cost on hyper kit
I bought this for 310 used on pbnation.com
it came with black hyper kit, raps, custom grips and red beam eyes.
i tested the whole gun and i love the trigger the weight and the looks
i played with the gun at doodle bugs everett and I was walking the trigger really fast that a few people thought i was ramping
it was astonishing i love this gun because it doesnt have much orings to lube
easy to disassemble (but the reg)
and they give you a allenwrench kit as well
Dangerous power customer service is wonderful i think personally its the best customer service i ever had
If you got the money to buy this gun go ahead but now since the f8 is out id prefer the f8 over this but id perfer the fusion over the pmr any day
If you want to buy a pmr id perfer a Fusion because its cheaper
DP LE Fusion Gold w/ Black accents
Black Virtued Vlocity Jr.
45/45 PE tank w/ hybrid free agent tank cover
nothing really maybe a barrel
Shoots REALLY nice
the feedneck but very very minor
A little kick
I have owned two fusions and i must say that these guns are sooo nice and shoot extremely nice. The milling is very intricate and it comes with everything you need. You don't really need anymore upss besides a barrel kit. The consistency of this gun is very good and it only goes +/- 3 fps. This gun is not very known but thats good. When i went to the field people kept asking if it was a borg. This gun is well worth the price and it shoots as well as the high end marker. The anno on the gun is also nice and there are many different colors. Also there customer service is unbelievable!!!!!
Ion good gun, hard to turn on/off and clean otherwise very good gun, I still own it.
Spyder shutter ; good to loan to friends who dont play : )
Pirahna EXT Pro ; nice gun to loan also: )
Autococker trilogy camo sf ; good sniper gun.
1 Brown Hybrid Fusion,halo V35, pure energy 68 3000 fiber tank, Redz barrel kit
2 Red and Blue Fusion LE, halo,48 3000 al. tank
3 Black and silver Fusion,Halo V35 w/ rip drive, carbon tank,Redz kit (brothers gun)
Magnet kit for trigger, feels smoother, no spring friction.( Rendition)
This gun rips, 25 bps,it ramps very fast.
Excellent customer service.
Made in Taiwan. Resale drops fast. Few upgrades.
I started w/ an Ion a good gun that never chops, but I wanted more.After a lot of research, mostly here, I bought a Brown Hybrid Fusion, I cant be happier. This gun just rips, that is once it got broke in at first it broke paint, now that its dialed in its perfect. I liked it so much I bought one for my Brother. He is now selling his Autococker. I found a really good price on a Spiderman colored fusion le yesterday that I had to buy, im going to have it laser engaved w/ Spiderman logos.
I used this gun in a group setting 30 on 30 in a corn maze, people asked about this gun all day, and not just because it looks good. Refs, people w/ egos, dms, anyone who got to see this gun blast people made comments about this gun.
Very easy to use this gun, easy to clean,turn on/off (unlike Ion), eyes on/off, change settings, I like a gun w/ a pressure gauge(f-8).
Full-auto is brutal on this gun dont use it on someone: ) I have an Egg loader w/ Z board for my Ion, it cant keep up w/ this gun.
Let this thing rip it will bring a smile to your face guarantied, its almost shocking!
Get one, unless I have to face you, then dont get one. As you may be able to tell I like these guns, I was going to get an ego until i saw the comparison side by side. If your really rich, and you want the ability to set your dwell, then an ego may be a good gun for you. Or buy 2 fusions,2 loaders, and 2 tanks for the same price.

Great stock, but a good barrel helps with any gun.
Nice Big Trigger guard
Ummm... I got nothing.
So, I have shot quite a few markers in my day, and my favorite up to the point of my Fusion was my AGD X-mag, which I loved, and would constantly be dissapointed with markers because they weren't anywhere near as good as my Mag. But, the Fusion did a great job.
The Fusion is a very fast, very efficient, very much so a great marker. I love how nice and big the trigger guard, it easily allows me to get my nice meaty fingers in there and walk the trigger with ease. This marker is probably the only marker I have ever left stock, and it did a great job. Got me few several tournaments without any problems. I could get almost a full case on a tank.
This is a great marker, and I was VERY pleased with it.
I have just got my Dangerous Power Fusion, After reading the guide and loading it up took it out and let some paint fly. It seamlessly pumped out paint, with little effort and with no chops. The paint I was using was over a year old and it went through the marker with no problems. I Chronograph-ed to 280 FPS and shot several hoppers. The markers stayed rock solid, recharge was great and chrono stayed consistent throughout. Firing the same amount with my promaster (similar stacked design) it was less efficient on air, greater drop in overall pressure between the two for the same amount of paint. The eyes seemed to work well I checked them with the three different color paints I had (one dark and the other two lighter shells) and it had no difference in performance.
I have only shot this marker today and my first impression is it feels rock solid, easy to maintain and looks like it will be a great marker for me. I would recommend it to any one to try this marker, I don't think anyone would be disappointed.
