well dont have us tell you what to do.

But IMO, keep the ion. Tippmanns are great guns dont get me wrong, i started off with a a5 and still have it. ITs a downgrade in my eyes.

Ions would destroy X7s in woodsball and speedball. Just cuz its more a speedball gun doesn't mean it can't be used in the woods.
The way I see it, you have more of an advantage with an Ion in the woods. Light, compact, and fast compared to a heavy gun with the only advantage being it looks like an actual gun.

Also, FYI: The X7 is nothing more then an A5 with a very ugly (imo) cheap plastic body kit. My field rents the 98c, A5 and x7 and i laugh every time i see kids pay the extra 5$ rental fee to get the fancy plastic on their gun, lol.

And as the other guys have said, you will never outshoot your ion w/ that x7. But it is also personal preference.

probably. and imho, the x7 is the worse of all the tippmans. it's a piece o' crap gun. plus like previously stated it's got a plastic non metal body.

wait no, the plastic body has one actual use, to carry tools in the bananna clip out onto the field! soo you know you can jack up your velocity! great idea i think....gets you kicked out of some fields. i think if he were to trade the x7, upgrade the cyclone internals AND got a egrip the thing could only get to like 23 bps max, cyclone really limits it. and the cyclone is a magnet of being shot at since its on the side of the gun.

if ions have horrible resale value, i would assume tippmanns have even worse resale value since tippmanns are looked upon as the most basic brand to get. The starters choice.

actually tipmanns hold there value decently well cause they never change, and are nuclear bomb proof.

you just have to find the right demograph, and obviously the ION thread isnt going to say, GO TIPPMANN!

I'd say no go on the trade. I get shot up a whole bunch when ever I used my tippmann, a friends so I don't like em' and rather have an ion over it.

Funny thing that is...because that stupid bananna clip falls out of the gun every chance it gets too, lmao. I watch these kids use them at the field and constantly see them stopping mid run to pick up the clip that just fell out...as they get lit up by the other team

If you really want a tippmann for its durability then save some money and get the A5.....the x7 is a POS in comparison.
