i am searching for another gun and i am interested in smartparts. I tried my friends ion and loved it. I would like some opinion though. since the eos came out, should i go for that one or go with an ion or ion xe?

i think the eos would be the better deal, even though it is more expensive.

i think that the weight does not really make much of a difference as it is only 8 ounces.

thanks for your guys input

alright well the Ion is a money pit so I can't really suggest it all that much even though I myself own one. however I would not buy an EOS either, since they cost 389.99 new. I say this because you could purchase an Invert Mini, which is a vastly superior marker for 325.99 new.

The only reason you should purchase an EOS is if you only have access to CO2 since it has a regulator that can accept CO2

try at all cost to avoid markers that are money pits. It does you no good to buy a $200 marker and put $500 worth of mods into it. For the money (again i agree with galihad..so what if its not original) i would try to get a mini.

Out of your choices i would prefer the Eos although i believe there are better markers for the price.
