In your opinions what is the worst marker ever made for the sport of paintball :?:


For me it has to be the ION its just to much work. You have to upgrade it right away, and it takes soooooooooooooooooooooo long to clean and maintain. Its just not worth it, especially now that there are so many markers that are better for the same price.

I would have to agree i think it is ALL smart parts guns. Like Mike said... They send you a EMPTY box.

It takes more time to clean an ION than it takes to drive to the paintball field. My main complaint about Smart Parts is their boards. Their boards are garbage.

the smart parts impulse requires a ton of upgrades. Figures another smart parts gun. Possibly the smart parts shocker too.

All SmartParts markers require upgrades right away. Their boards are horrible, and the shocker doesn't even come with a clamping feed neck. I could keep going but it would be a long post.

I think if anyone wants to know why "SMART PARTS" make such a horrible paintball markers for the price go watch Mike's videos he will go strait to the point witch just happens to be a list of things that you have to replace Shocked

Yeah I hate pbnation. I think the reason it was made was to make fun of people that don't have $1000 guns. People make fun of me for having a PM6? Thats an amazing gun...

I have an Ion, I'm pretty happy with it. It's been uped pretty good. but I bought it like that. I've shot almost 3 cases and havent chopped a ball. Whats up with the stock board you guys are talking about?

Like you I own a SP and am happy with it. Regardless, the issues with the Ion stock board are that it is not very adjustable, maxes out at 17 bps and only comes with semi, 3 shot and full.

I have an Ion thats been uped pretty well off, bought it like that though. It shoots fine I'm happy with it. I've gone through almost 3 cases now and not 1 chop, what the deal on the stock board??

I think SP was ahead of the game when it first hit the market. Offering a competitive gun for the good price. And the only improvement on the Ion is the XE with the bolt out back

The board doesn't have all the modes it should and if you say mikes video about the SP nerve boards, they tamper with the board so you HAVE to buy a new one if you want to update. You can't have it updated by a proshop.

Yea the stock boards are crap, well lets make a short list
-feedneck
-asa (strips tank threads)
-board
-trigger
-reg
and lets not forget all the work you have to do to take it apart.

Yeah my Ions O.K. but I did buy it with everything on it already. I feel bad for a person that bought there Ion completely stock, then having to drop another 2-300 hundred into it.
