All the Ion Bashing?

Come on guys, it hasn't even been released. Personally, as someone who doesn't like Smart Parts and think their stuff is overpriced, I actually see potential.

Although the milling leaves much to be desired, I like the overall concept. Lets just see how well Smart Parts can market it and improve its design.

I don't think you could ask for anything more from a $300 gun.

Even tsome of the same people returned...

Think about it like this any team almost can have there own covers. I would assume they will have a few pro teams plastic mill jobs!

No offence, but I don't think any pro teams will use this gun. Why would they when they could use a Shocker?

I guess it might be a good gun for its price, but what do you people honestly expect from a $300 gun?

the only reason its so cheap is cuz smart parts NEEDED to bring people back to their company. they had lost so much respect that it was rediculous. I honestly think they couldve msrpd this for arond 420, but they just need people to flock back to SP. and since they have so much money, and power. Why not?

I dont expect it to last long at all.

edit: even if it is nice, and great grand and wonderful.

And yes, my imp looks better!

looks are a lot! you cat be pimpin an ugly gun!

This is going to create so much controversy... I think what SP is trying to do is make it so prices in the paintball industry lower which really is what they should do. I mean come on guys to make a brand new shocker is probably costs SP like 2- 300 dollars. They sell it for like 750. That is a HUGE profit. On a single gun. Really prices of PB guns should be way way lower. Not saying they will though.

its called marketing. when all the little kids see some of the top teams playing with 300 dollar markers they are going to want to get them. and you can bet your *** that if a pro team shoots it, it will prob be a totaly different marker underneath the skin. im not saying that dynasty and all are GOING to use them, but if they did it would be for marketing most likely.

wow can u guys gtfo? This gun might be sweet. No one knows yet. Lets wait till ppl actually try them out before we all say how crappy it is because it costs 300 dollars. Like i said before there is no reason that PB guns should cost 1000+ dollars. Its such BS. You can buy a computer for that much.
