.................................................. ..Normally I'd say thats the stupidist thing ever....


But when I read SPYDER ELECTRA then I actually had to come to my senses and say get the Ion XE...

Your giving up horrible and moving on to average...but hey....its a start right?

the new electra actually shoots well
shoots like an ego.
i'd still say buy a used highend but if you're going between the 2, i say spyder. they've gotten alot better with their new valve and ram designs

New bolt. Electra's are decent. And I like em more than any kind of stockish Ion/Vibe.

SP is going down. I wish you luck trying to find new replacement parts if you get the Ion XE.

Ion parts are extremely easy to find and will be for a long time. No need to worry about that.

Extremely easy to find whole markers, that have some slightly wrong with them to be used for parts. I've never seen anyone just selling stock parts on here, new or used.

i would go with the ion but if you buy used from here you can get a much better marker used then buying the ion new.
