Ion vs. Spyder vs. whatevers >$50

I'm looking into getting my first electro as soon as I can. However, my budget is going to be very low; $50 give or take for the marker itself. So far in this price range I've seen Ions (everyone and their dog has/had one, id like something a little different) and Spyders (an electric Spyder scares me). Which is better? Anything else in my range? Btw if it can run on CO2 I can go $40 up.

Ion over spyder for sure. If you can get one though, try for a smart parts vibe in that price range.

Proto slg IMO my ion has broken down every game I've played with it. Maybe I just had bad luck but the slg is a great gun if you can get t that cheap

I'd get an Ion over anything else in the $50 range. It's nearly the same gun as the eXTCy, which is a $250 gun new and you can customize it in any way you want later down the road.

*And everyone has had an Ion because it's a great gun for the price.

Ion because it can be modded to hell and back and parts/upgrades can be had for cheap. A fully upped Ion is actually a fantastic gun.


If it was a stock Ion vs Stock Blitz however, i'd probably go for the blitz. Still, if you have enough brains to find used upgrades and install them yourself, the Ion would be my choice.

BTW, I just want to point out that when you say >$50 you're saying greater than $50. We are assuming you're looking for a sub-$50 (<$50) marker.

Yeah, I know I saw that about three seconds after I posted it.

Serious facepalm on my part.
