Now I know the shockers better thats what im getting but I just want to know why its better my friend is pretty much putting 900 into an ion and my shocker will be about 1200 when its done. But the speed and everything will be almost the same so I just wnated to know what specifically and internally makes the shocker better than an ion. I guess what Im realy asking is what makes all these high end guns better than eachother I understand like better regs or barrels but if you plan on up grading those parts anyhow why spend the extra money on say a dm6 instead of a shocker.

The shocker is just manufactured with tougher constraints...thats why its more expensive, it has to pass tougher quality control.

Not necisarily...it just means that the parts are a higher grade...

Think of it like eggs...Grade B eggs dont get you any less of an omlet...

The material for shockers isnt the greatest alumanim(sp) it dosnt hold ano the best and isnt the toughest. Basicaly shockers are bob and slightly smaller then ions and thats kind of it. If there is a 1000 doller ion and 1000 doller shocker they will perfrom sortof similar since the ion has better eyes and desighn wise i like it more. Its hard to say realy i need ghost soldier.

Bolt Out Back...the back unscrews allowing you to take out the internals without removing the grip or body.

I'm not saying that the Ion is better...I'm saying they're about the same. Its a matter of personal preferance really...

I agree. Both are single tube,both have a simple desighn,both are not heavy. The ion has better eyes and the bolt concept i find is much smarter but at the same time the ion is harder to clean and less quality. Its preference in my opinion since any gun with 700 put into it will be nice.
BOB is bolt out back i should have said that but put bob.

Of course the Ion is going to have a better bolt system...its newer than the shocker...

They had to save and scrimp in some places to keep the Ion low priced though...Like the body...

Look at this

l6 bolt 50
evolve pi reg 60
lucky kit 90
q lock 30
cage body 80
ndz trigger 30
detents 10
t board 50

this is all 690 and there are more ups you can do and this is a nice setup.

All the pros shoot Shockers over Ions, so just take it on faith... :dodgy:

No, the Shocker is sharper looking IMO, and is just made from better materials. The Ion is nice stock for the price and even nicer after upped. Outside of the obvious "Shockers are made better", my advice is to get a Shocker instead because everyone hates Ion owners, for the most part.

I dont hate ion owners i hate idiots and it happens that on the ion portion of pbn there are alot of idiots. Dosnt meen ion owners are half retarded. I hate pompous egos(not the gun) so if you own a dm5 or nexus ego and thing your better then anybody else then yes i hate you and it turns out people who own nice guns are usualy hated by me since of there egos.
