Upgrading an icon x?

I have an icon x and i'm okay at paintball but not great yet. I want to know what I can upgrade on it instead og just buying a new gun which I don't want to do. I think I need a bigger barrel but other upgrades info would be great.

The only upgrade I would consider for that gun would be a better barrel. I personaly like the 14" J&J ceramic barrel. They arent too expensive and they work great...

Aside from a barrel....the best thing you can do is just get out there and play more. Spend your money on paint and field entry...dont waste it on upgrades for a gun that you will ultimately ditch in the future.

i got an icon x for free from a friend, and i have another guy willing to sell me his rocking trigger frame for $50 i already have a halo hopper, and new delrin bolt. i know the frame fits the gun, but will it work properly?
i have had some people tell me that it is a good cheap setup, and some tell me that i will just keep chopping balls. PLEASE HELP ME!

i have an icon x and my upgrades for it are::: a quiot riot14 inch barrel, an eggy 3 with a custom speed feed (trying to sell some), and a spyder rocking trigger frame 2.0...i recomend buying all of that but u can just get a different hopper if you dont wanna pay $60 for an electric hopper. And also i got my rocking trigger for $70 at amazon.com

Icon X is a perfect Spyder Victor II clone

Get a new barrel, 14 or 16 in.
Get a stock if you want, i think its worth the money. They are hella useful.
Get a new hopper once you train your finger...if u dont want ur balls to get chopped if ur really fast. Get a E hopper.
New CO2, 20 oz is good, or just go with a 12.
Get a remote, it saves a lot more air.

All you really NEED is the barrel, but i reccomend at least getting a barrel and a remote.

hey......

im gunna save your but a big amount of money....
go for a new gun....
those guns will have many problmes in the future so just get a new one ......
and when you get a new one get a fairly darn nice one and when you wanna step it up a notch again .... save alot of money and get an uber nice one....

dont buy the same type of class of gun over and over ... same pricees, same problems, same loss

in other words... get a new gun that will last you a long time and then really go for a nice gun ... i wish i knew that when i started

cause if he buys a freak kit he can just get a new back if his next gun is of a different thread.. and it will save some moeny then.. i know u said u dont want to buy a new gun but u could get a spyer vs3 and on pbgear.com right now u can get a vs2 trif frame with it.. so that way ud have a rocker frame and a reg frame but the vs frames are diff then reg spyder frames...
