I currently have an Ion with a carbon fiber barrel and a 72ci tank, which, needless to say, makes the marker INCREDIBLY back-heavy. If I were to run my tank on a remote, it would really make it a lot easier to maneuver and aim. I know that the sticky says to run the air on-gun rather than on a remote and I never hear any posts about daggers using remotes, but why?

...I know what you are probably thinking- "Wow why would you buy a heavy tank like that as a dagger" but I usually play in my yard, so I need the air to last all day (that and I got the tank for $50 with a cover)...

It's just a guideline, if it's heavy for you, go remote, there's nothing wrong with it. People say the remote gets tangled, but if you string it up right it's perfectly fine, and I've been thru heavy brush with mine before, no problems.

did I die for a second there?...

Use one if you think it will work for you, as stated those are just guidelines. I barely use the position/don't use that system. Just do what you want.

t0ast hates me! :( :( :( :(

I loved the remote when I used it, but the thing about it is that you need a stock or your accuracy goes to hell in a handbasket. Do they even make stocks for Ions?

I'm not a fan of the remote. Even if it doesn't get tangled, you can't switch hands well. It just complicates things too much. I like air on gun myself. You can distribute the weight by tucking the tank into your shoulder.. it provides a better shooting platform anyway.

I play with a remote and it made it a lot easier to carry the gun. so far I havent had mine get tangled, but if it does its easy to get a remote cover.

I can entirely understand why you're using the heavy tank and, for that size of tank, you would definitely want to run remote. At Elite Weekend and half a dozen other times, I have run remote and actually loved it. Ok, the downsides are 2 things. 1) You can't switch hands. I don't do that much anyway so it doesn't bother me. 2) It might snag. See below.

The positives are that it's MUCH lighter, although you definitely want a simple T- or L-stock to retain your accuracy. To avoid the downside of snagging, I recommend one of two things. Either use a HEAVY duty remote coil as in a large diameter macro-line (my preference) or a remote cover.

There is o reason why a Dagger cannot run remote but it all comes down to "try it and see if it works for YOU".

I have one and i play dagger.I also have a 3 foot long gun(BT4 Banshee).I like it and if u find ur gun is heavy then deffinetly get one.I havent had any problems with mine.But its up to u if u could try one and see if u like then go for it.

I also dont switch hands so thats not a problem for me, also i never had mine snag on anything.

I personally do not like remotes. Whenever I used them it would catch on trees and what not so I gave up on it. I did like how much faster I could move..but I didnt think it worth the trouble.

Well I tried it out just the other day and it was a bit too effective at taking weight off the back of my marker- instead of being back-heavy, it really shifted the weight forwards (because of the hopper). I'm crazy to complain about the balance with the remote, but I honestly don't like it as much now... It was a lot harder for me to slide because I was worried about landing on the tank and it raised my profile enough when I was crawling so the other team could actually find me.
