07 August 2008 - 12:51 PM... if you ever thought it was funny to tape a 9v to your frame just so you could say 'see it takes batteries'.

He would fit right in at most games I've been to.
07 August 2008 - 12:31 PMKeep in mind I'm not a big fan of SP. I dont like the things that the company has done buisness-wise in an attempt to monopolize the industry. I also think that they were wrong to market the ion as they did... it was poorly designed for an entry level marker. That being said I'm actually impressed by their new entry level markers the Vibe and the SP1. I even bought one myself.
Honestly, the SP1 and the Vibe are better constructed than the Ion... (the banjo bolts were made inhouse this time as opposed to buying them and trying to mod the design) Have a reg that blows off liquid co2 (it actually works. I tried to get CO2 into the valve to see the effects... direct bottle at 90 degrees down. The blow off works!). And only has 3 parts to remove for replacing o-rings and lubing . The board is easy to figure out what mode it's in (only has 3) and is limited to 11 bps. Also it survived the noobie torture test for 4 months so far. (Handing it out to new kids to play with and seeing if they can break it.)
An electro-pneumatic spool valve marker for less than $150.
Simple hardy design.
Can work directly off of a CO2 bottle.
Simple board. Red light means single fire... slow flashing means 3round burst...fast flashing means full auto.
Capped at 11bps. Meaning it works pretty well with any type of loader... even non-electronic.
LOCKING FEEDNECK STANDARD ON A LOW END SP GUN!
Consistant velocity with CO2 and HPA.
Holding the barrel down causes the 9volt in the frame to push on the trigger and cause sticking on inital shot.
Asthetically switching out the tac-barrel for another dosnt work so much.
Cannot get the D@*& built-in flashlight holder open.
Somewhat of a gas hog (comperable to the ion).
Needs a better manual. Not enough information.
