Cant decide... Better Deal???

Well i have been planing on getting an Ion for a while now...... I found a deal that came with a NIB ION w/72ci/3k tank and a Egg 2 w/zboard for $390
Well today i found out i can get an ION with nothing for $280 then buy an egg 2 w/ no z board and a 68ci/3k crossy fiberwraped. Well i chose the second option only because in the first one, the tank is a steel tank (heavy, pmi).

Well now i am regreting it because the second deal is causeing me tons more (for everything, it is $460)

Do you think i chose the right package???
Well i started buying some of the stuff and found a cheap hopper. Egg 2. Well my friend said it was an Egg 2 but when i got it, it looked different. I now find it was an Egg 1..... the original. I got it for 30 but i dont know how well it will compare to the Egg2..... Anyone know???

Please Reply,
Hontz

i dont know about eggs ... but i do know they dont compare to the speed of a halo b ... but the halo is heavier .... anyway ... i would get the package ... but you can find LNIB ions on pbnation for like 245 and tanks cheap too ... the size of your tank is personal prefrence .. i have a pmi 68/4500 ... i dont have an ion tho .... yet

no. I think you should have taken the first deal, sold the tank and bought a new tank. Would have been alot cheaper... also you can get a NIB ion any basic color for like 240-250 easy...

well the ion i found in the second deal is at my local shop. I make a bit every week and for the wait of an ion online for 250, i would rather spend the extra 30 for it in my hand earlier. But i am still kinda stuck on this Egg thingy. The tank is nice fit and the fiber wrapped deal just is it is lighter and i think i would be better fit for it.

first of all no you didnt choose the right package because both packages had there faulties, what you should have done was gone with package one, w/o the egg then you wood have gotten it for like 340 at most and then since the second package was 460 use the extra money for a halo, halos on here are lik 80 bux brand new, you will be disappointed with an egg get a halo there funner

I was at my friends house, that was me on Spoon_Fish....

I am trying to say that all though i already have the deal, the hopper i just bought today is not a EggII. It's an original Egg. I dont know the difference board wise but i know there is different paddles and stuff that make the performance slugish. NO, i am not getting a Halo. Thay are useless on an ION seeing that the ION is capped at 17bps. An Egg is capped at 17bps and not only that i am a slow shooter and an Egg will do me just fine. And who sayd you can get a Halo for $80..... Links to prove your point????

if your question is ultimately about the hopper (since you have already spent your money) it would probobly make sense to ask in the hopper forum. I agree with what was said before however, my egg II does not load 17 bps stock. I finally got it to 18 by doing the paddel mod and three battery mod, but my halo still gets the job done alot better. The captain of my company's sponsored team uped his egg II to a z board, and it hangs with his ION no problem, but stock it came no where close.
