Exclamation !!!!help Me Please????

Well ive been deciding on what i want to do. I currently have an ion with a cp reg, check it asa, clamping feedneck, and freak. I wasnt really happy with it when i went to the field. The gun itself was ok, but everyone and their uncle has an ion. I found this RAT Impulse that looks pretty nice. Here is a pic of it,
http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=3/7621152794.jpg&s=x11
It has a vision cricket board in it, which i really dont know much about. Rat IMPS have been catching my eye lately, and i want to try something new. I just dont know if this is a good trade. The guy is willing to trade straight up for my ion, but i dont know what to do honestly. How many bps would i be able to reach on this thing, anything better than my ion? The pics of my ion can be found in my sig. Id really appreciate it if someone would help me out and maybe give me some advice. How is the trigger pull on this thing? Similar to the ion? Weight for someone playing back? Easy to clean the marker? Also, how much would it be to get ECS done to the board(from what i read its a good thing), and would it be worth it? I paid 270 for the ion..so what do you think about the trade?

to be honest your ion will perform better than that imp they way they are. However if you plan on putting money into that imp than it can become very nice. The thing is that imp is all stock, and many people have put hundreds into imps to make them sick. An imp is alot heavier than an ion, which isn't a big deal for a back player. The trigger pull is a bit harder (not much ) than an ions, but that trigger is better than a stock ions. That stock board is capped at 13 where are the ions is 17. Not that you'll be shooting that fast. If you really want to trade tell him that you want to keep barrels, that's one less thing you'll be buying later on. Imps are a but easier to clean than a ion seeing as how you can pull the pin and get the bolt out. ECS is good but i'd look into getting a used WAS board. They are kicking around here for like 60-65 bucks and are well worth the money.

don't do it, even RAT imps are some of the most upped from the seller, this one in the picture has a regular SP bolt, that tells me that perhaps the seller may have removed some of the upgrades,
IMPs are IMHO outstanding when compared to IONs, ease of maintaining, use and upgrades are the pluses, negitives, weight and age,
but now ask yourself this, look at the b/s/t/ electro marker forum, how come so many ions for sale if they are really that good?

Smitty is a great guy and his Imp would be the better trade. True, it is the stock body, but with $62 for NDz Ram Housing Assembly and I think like $100-$200 worth of milling, that gun would be schweet.

Imps are a dying breed, and the only thing you have to ask yourself is, do you want a gun that won't sell for anything once you stop liking it?

My advice would be to go to your local field and try and trade guns with an impulse guy, and play for the day. An imp for a game isn't that bad, but to play with it a whole day will definitely make you decide whether or not you like it.

My Impulse wins.

But, if you don't count my Imp (Dominator of Impulses) then the second one will destroy the competition in a hail of bloody gunfire and welts after its tuned in.

The FBM also has a i-frame on it. Many people like them and are generally very fast triggers. Sometimes a bit bouncy. That doesn't look like my JHII though, it may be an older JHI.
I would prefer the Rat. They both have the same board, bolts, maybe valve, etc. The Rat has a bit better ups and I like the milling. The FBM is a good looking marker though.
