SP Ion
Blackheart
QEV
Apex
Shroud
Bipod Grip
EV 3
110ci 4500psi
Tank Cover (not pictured)
Home-Made Drop (polyethylene, needs to be painted)

Doesn't much look like a woodsball machine, but it serves me pretty well as a medium rifleman. I can send a LOT of paint very reliably, and very accurately with the stock barrel @ 260-270fps. Apex accuracy is not so good, but has it's advantages depending on the field.

I have the shroud mounted directly to the Apex so it can be twisted with the fore grip. A little easier to use than reaching out to the end, smoother and steadier control too.

Perhaps it's just the way the light falls, but everything looks like a target to me.

I've never really seen anything quite like that. A new body kit might blend a little better with the hand guard.

yeah, a blackcell body kit might make it seem more flush with the rest of the marker.

It's gotta be that big to balance out that huge front shroud lol.

Really is different from most Ions, but doesn't look to bad actually. Maybe a blackcell body and stock like others have said can add to the look you've got going now.

Cool, thanks for the advice. That's exactly what I was thinking, Blackcell body and a nice gas-through stock then go remote. Need to save up some $$$ though...

I just got that tank recently and tried playing it with a remote on, but not having something to pull the marker into my shoulder made my aim HORRIBLE. I missed six kills because of aim, that's BAD for me, so I put the tank on the marker and I'm doing better now. I find having the marker anchored makes a HUGE difference.

I don't know how my wife does it, her marker is set up island style, that would make me nuts.

I'm getting 3/4 case of paint out of that tank, but I've yet to find a field that will fill all the way to 4500psi, (don't know why) and I'm still tweaking my dwell settings. I really should be able to hit 2K rounds with that if I keep my velocity around 265.

My wife's VERY modified Spyder Sonix. Say what you will about Spyder markers, but besides being heavy and kicking like a mule this marker is GREAT. Dependable, easy to clean, indestructible. She's a small grrrrrl so I turned the tank around for her. More manageable that way... Anybody want to give me some tips on how to reduce kick? The bolt is already light, replace the striker too?

Rocking e-trigger (you can send an unholy amount of paint in a very short time, makes me feel like Jesus Christ for a few seconds)
Delrin Anti-Chop Bolt
Freak Barrel
Can't remember the model of expansion/regulator ATM
Some silly drop forward
12 Volt Revolution (can't keep up with the trigger...)
Trinity clamping feed neck

My stepson's VERY modified Spyder Sonix.
E-trigger
Anti-Chop Bolt
Apex Barrel
Trinity Stock
Trinity clamping feed neck
Adco Sure-Shot Sight
One of those pneumatic hoppers (pretty cool unless you have a need for speed)

Both of these are a ton of fun to play with once in a while, but I love my Ion. Too bad they're such a b*tch to tear down and clean.
