Is a SmartParts Ion a good gun choice for a Broadsword? ;)

yea it can lay paint fast enough only thing i don't like is no bigger hopper sizes love my 330 on my A5 but yea I'd say the ion is a good choice as long s you can keep it fed.

Good gun but an A-5 with E-grip and Flatline would be better.

It could be done sure... but I wouldn't do it. My 2 main reasons being I prefer the flatline over the Apex(my opinion so keep flames to yourself) and hopper capacity...

*edit* posted twice for some reason

I think it's definitely a good choice. Just stay away from the evolution hoppers. get an apex, qev, a new bolt and a better regulator. you'll need the apex for the extra distance broadswords normally play from and the other upgrades will keep you from having recharge problems.

Get the Ion, great gun. Other than all the previous upgrades, I would get a smart parts blackheart board. This board can set to uncapped BPS. I know this, because my dagger friend danny has an Ion with Blackheart.

forget blackheart, go APE rampage, Lucky, or Tadao. More options with all three and they're only about $20-30 more.

I just fired up my ion for the first time today and I'll tell ya it's a great marker for us good ROF but again the only thing I could hope for is more paint in the hopper at a time mine seemed to eat paint like it was going out of style but none the less a great marker might have to work on a black cell boradsword.

So, only boards made by Smart Parts have the UNCAPPED godlyness of super speed. Besides 20-30 bucks where I live is an extra bag or two of paint so I would rather shoot more with a board that has only 7 modes instead of shooting less with 12 or so modes.

Don't get defensive. And nope, the blackheart is the one made by smart parts and it's definitely not the only one with uncapped firing modes. In fact, everything I've ever found on the blackheart says it's CAPPED at 20bps. I'm not saying anyone needs to shoot that fast but......Plus correct me if i'm wrong but the blackheart doesn't have the option of using a membrane. Membranes are definitely great to have if you're going to spend the money on a board upgrade.

I play just about every position there is except sniper. If I'm not a broadsword what would YOU classify me as?
