Can you explain to me how in ANY WAY a POS Tippmann is superior to an ION??? Did i fall asleep and tippmann became a high quality company or somthing?

Ion:

Electronic
Eyes
Vert Fed
Double trigger
USABLE barrel
Low pressure operation
Single tube
Inline Reg
(I could go on)

Tippmann:

Mechanical
"ACT" (if you ahve a 98, otherwise blind)
Side Feed (unless u have an A-5, then it has a huge target, oh wait they call it a cyclone)
Single Trigger
POS BARREL
High Pressure operation
HUGE gun
No reg

THe Ion kills Tippmanns. Most people here are Tippmann fans and will say Tippmann which is crazy. The Ion has so many better features. Totally Ion.

Ion if your rich.

Tippmann if you want an extremely durable gun with good functionality for cheaper.
I can't believe I ate the whole thing.

You don't have to be rich to get an Ion. Here is a nice setup for $305 + free shipping: AVI Smart Parts Ion Starter B Paintball Gun Kit - Black. And FYI, Ion kills Tippmanns of any kind. I've owned a 98 and after wasting money on upgrades, I sold it to buy an Ion. Best thing I have every done. The problem is, most people associate Tippmanns with woodsball because Tippmann has dominated the woodsball marker market. Since SP came out with a low priced electro, it's really heated up the comp. Bad thing for Tippmann is, they don't realize it and continue to rely on their brand and legacy. Which is fine, but those that are willing to cross over are not looking back. The other side is that most people associate an electro as being speedball only. Especially when considering the Ion. But for me, the Ion has all the qualities I have been looking for in a paintball marker and a few that I didn't care to have but turned out to be nice to have.

P.S. And one other thing that I wanted to point out after reading MM's post. Just because the Ion is electric and can pull off 15 bps stock, doesn't mean you have to. It's quite capable of shooting in semi-auto mode with 8-9 bps which is about all I can pull off since I'm not accustomed to the dual trigger and I also don't care to shoot that fast. I am a conservative when it comes to slinging paint. Unless I'm trying to keep someone pinned, I don't care to shoot off more than 3-5 shots before moving to get a different angle.

Well, that depends. If it's your first gun, go with a tippy. If it isn't your first gun, and you know how to take care one and how to use it. Bump up your gun to the next level and get an ion. However, the reliability of a tippmann will be better than that of an ion, simply because it is a mech. A tippmann will hold up through most anything, and an ion is rugged, but not as rugged as the tippmanns.
