I would say...

Get rid of the ion, because they have shootdown at high speeds. Even with a maxflo, there is shootdown. Don't get a shocker, they are nothing but a pain because of all the lube. Get a timmy or a matrix. If I had time to play, I would get rid of my ion and get one of those.

I don't know if you can say that for all of us...mine doesn't have shoot down even when I'm on rebound.

ok, i have both guns, and i can honestly say, if the ion was out b4 the shocker, and if i had to do it again, i would buy the ion. For the money u buy the ion for, u can upgrade just how U want it, and have it better than a shocker, for the same money

i have both as well, and both of them shoot nicely. Personally, i think that the stock reg on the ion, is indeed better than the vert maxi on the shocker, because when they made the new maxflo for the shocker, they just tried to shrink everything that was in the vert maxi for the impulse, and it kinda made it worse. Vert Max-flos have the tendency to screw up, but I have a shorty CP reg, so I dont get that. I would take the shocker, because while the ion is small and fast, the shocker is smaller, and FASTER

the shocker is smaller barely, barely, and the ion is almost as light, and with a halo b and 91/4500 tanks on both, i dont notice the difference, but u pay what 800 more for a faster stock sp bord? no, no, no, just buy an ion virtue bord for 150 when it comes out, and it blows away a shockers bord

Remeber the stock shocker doesn't have eyes... even if you have a halo b you can still chop really easily. And since ion's and shockers are hard to take apart quickly i would suggest the ion. Plus upgrading is so freakin more fun! but lets see i would say it would cost 500 dollars to really pimp out your ion. So go with the ion.

Thats why he said hes getting a stock vision shocker.....

Look in B/S/T Here and find a nice Gun. Sell your ION for $230 and use that to buy a gun, just make sure the seller has lots of good positive Feedback. AIM me at cowtipp3r213 if u have questions.

Ion w/ups. Get a new barrel, qev, regulator, board, feedneck and bolt and you're looking at about the same price as the vision shocker, but the perfect "sleeper" gun.

Its depends. Can you even afford a halo to keep up with the shocker?

If you need more than 17bps stock then go with a shocker.

I would go Ion with ups unless you could afford a hybrid shocker, which is the only shocker I would buy.

I LOVE my Ion, but in all honesty I'd buy the shocker.

if you have the money get a shocker. nicer feel to them. but if you are on a budget like so many of us get an ion and upgrade. check out the quickshot shocker on ebay. everything you'll ever need. wish i had the money for it

I would buy the shocker, but only get it if it can see. If not its a bad choice. Im not going to bash on the Ion but the shocker is just an all out better gun.
