Vis. Imp VS. ION

Out of concern for my vision impulse and whether or not I should keep it, I just talked to a smart parts sales rep directly over the phone, like im sure alot of you have. They said the gun was not maid to nulify the impulse in any way. The ion was only made as a cheeper alternative and is in no way better than a vision Impulse (stock). So the resail value is all we impulse owners are going to have to deal with, because we can still as of right now, shoot faster.

make new board same size, or mabe an upgraded board will require you to send the gun to smart parts for them to install it, of course after paying them a certian fee

There you go. If someone came out with a board like that, they can price it pretty much however much they want and still get it.

Have you ever considered that its not the Board thats capping the ROF. On punisherspb it hints at a 3-way similiar to a BKO, which is why the bko can "only" cycle about 18bps. The actual bolt/valve design itself may also be the limiting factor. I myself will probably be picking one of these as a backup for our team, depending on peoples experiences with them.

You get one case with the gun.

As for your Impulse shooting faster, not really, since the average person can't shoot over 15bps without any type of software aid, its pretty pointless. The Impulse will further decrease in resale because who's going to want to buy some old beat up *** Impulse when they can take $300 and go buy the ION? Honestly ... sell your Imps while you can and jump on the ION bandwagon. Its going to revolutionize the electropneumatic market. Especially since the gun isn't pneumaticly limited to 17bps, just through the board operation. Custom CHIPS/BOARDS will be out probably before, or by Cup so plan to see these things all over the damn place.

The ION is going to bring people back to Smart Parts, and that, I'm sure, is the intended goal.

As far as I can tell the demand for Shockers is on a rise. Especially the newer releases that come with the Nerve board from the factory.

This gun uses the same spool valve design, and a modified Shocker style bolt. The only thing that should ose any concern to the markers actual performance is the new solenoid design. I'm sure it will perform adequately for the $300 price tag.


OMG ITS THE LAUGHING MAN!!!! I THINK THERE IS A GHOST IN MY SHELL...
