Its faster, Lighter, more durable, comes with parts youd have to upgrade for an ion, and is better looking. Also, I wanted to be different. I dont wanna be in the about 50% of everyone with an ion. They cost about the same, and all you need for a Promaster is as ASA, maybe a feedneck, and in my opinion a new Regulator. So before you buy an ion, check out a Promaster. You wont be disapointed.

hoq do promasters shoot?

Before this gets closed as a vs. thread, I'll add my 2 cents.

There is nothing wrong with the Ion, they shoot just as accurately as ANY other gun on the market. They also shoot faster than what is legal in any tournament in the world - without any upgrades. (A stock Ion will shoot 17bps, as long as you have a hopper that will feed that fast and your fingers are that fast.) I have not heard of any tournament series, Pro or ameteur, that allows more than 15bps, unless the gun is on semi. (And hardly anyone can go over 15bps without cheating by using bounce.)

Now, on to cockers. Autocockers are my favorite guns, and have turned out to be the most reliable and durable guns I've ever owned, and I've been playing a long, long time. Certainly, autocockers are more durable and of a higher quality build than an Ion. Mechanical cockers are not as fast as the new breed of electros, but I can shoot a pretty constant 10bps out of mine. 10bps is a lot faster than most people think - and a lot of people think I'm shooting faster than that with my mech. With my electro-cocker, I can keep up with any gun on the field, and it NEVER lets me down. I can't shoot 30bps like some guns, but as I stated earlier, 15bps is the limit at nearly all fields and all tournaments, and my gun has no problem shooting that fast all day long. With the ugrades I have, (the slik bolt and back block kit), the reciprocating mass of my e-cocker is about the same as a brand new Ego - so it's just as accurate at high speeds as any of the "modern" speedball guns. Anyway, it's all preference, and I personally wouldn't trade either of my cockers for 3 of any other gun out there. They may be old, but they get the job done, and nothing else shoots the same, sounds the same, or looks the same.

Exactly, get what you like, not what everyone else likes.
