Yeah, but I only spent 150.00 (total price) on mine, I haven't added any ups, they were already on the gun when I got it. Thank god for local Surplus store that mainly sells Tippmanns, they didn't know what they had.

The Ion however, has hundreds of upgrades, with the possibility of you making your own custom look for your gun
Were you dropped on your head when you were little, or just plain stupid? Why would you upgrade the hell out of an Ion when you can buy a better gun with the money you use to upgrade the Ion. I'm not knocking the Ion but don't go spend like $400 on it in upgrades.
What's funny is nobody read what the poster said. "...making your own custom look for your gun." Not about making it perform like another. And you upgrade because you want to. Period. ****, I wish people would stop asking that. Why do you get rims for your car? Why did you go with a pillow-top mattress instead of a coil-spring? Why'd you buy leather shoes? Let them! I am glad you wrote that there's nothing wrong with the Ion though.

We all will forever disagree what marker is the best, because there's too many variables. Just like cars. So quit bashing on each other for how much money they spent on their gat - it's not ****ing yours!

OP; Getting an Ion for a first gun is awesome. Ion's are certainly worth having, or they wouldn't have sold tens of thousands of them. Your parents did you a favor by upping you into a mid-range gun, instead of entry. Enjoy your Ion, learn to work on it, and get out on the field. Remember that it's not the gun, but the player.

more like a stupid roommate haha. College life for the win. Stick with the ION it'll serve you well as long as you keep it happy and feed it lots of paint.

this really is the bottom line. If your good enough you can take on advanced players with more expensive equipment than u and beat them as long as you have the skill. Likewise if you buy a $1000 gun there's a good chance you just threw away $1000 if you aren't good enough or experienced enough to manage it and use it to its full capabilities. That statement really can end all arguements.

halob54 helped look for balloons
with the ion and vibe, no one of these guns is better than the other
they both have their advatages and disadvantages
ion has a metal frame, longer barrel, better board and eyes
vibe has a better trigger, feedneck, and bolt out back, and i prefer the vibes asa(just because my tank is so long and i don't need that extra inch)

so if everyone would just stop arguing and accept that they are very similar in quality and have there own good things and bad

and so the argument is re-opened

btw a longer barrel only uses more air.

anything more than that just uses more air. personally after shooting the vibe stock barrel and a linear barrel (basically the ion stock barrel) there is minimal difference. point is both guns are great options, especially with upgrades.

Vibe

I say the Vibe.
I have a vibe and it has not let me down. the only thing is that sometimes air leaks out of the fron grip.
But besides that it is great.

And they stoped making Ions so I dont think there will be many upgrades for it.

interesting, since Virtue just came out with a OLED board for the ion recently. so ions do have upgrades coming out, just not as much as the last 2 years.

guys stop posting in here, the OP already has an ion and judging by this thread he won't go through the hassle of trading it in for a vibe. if you don't stop posting now we will get people flowing in here that just love to start fights arguing about which gun is better, which performs better, which looks better, which has more upgrades, which is faster, and other stuff no one cares about.

in essence, you're contributing to posting in here when you just told us to stop posting in here.

both guns have their ups and downs yes but it all comes down to personal preference of each person.

your right, next time i won't say anything and let this thread continue to 10 pages of an ion vs. vibe flame war. My post urged people to stop posting, yours only continued the argument and reiterated what has already been said about 10 times.
