Hey from ur guys aspects what do u think is better an Smart Parts Ion or a MR 1 spyder?

Ion .. since the mr1 is a mechy ... and ion has a lot more features
Really personal preference though .. since the mr1 is senario .. but the ion is more of an airball gun....

Hands down the Ion is better...but if you are looking to have a good MilSim experiance, then the MR1 cant be beat. Heavy marker (Mostly metal construction)...so it "Takes a licking, and keeps on ticking". The Ion SP8 is what I assume you are refering to is a composit shell MilSim (Plastic), Sorry...but I just dont trust "Plastic" and "PaintBall" in the same sentance. I have played with the SP8, and it did not seem to be made very well (Lots of flex and thin spots in the outter plastic shell)....I chose the MR2 because of this. ITS A TANK, tough, shoots well, fairly fast, easy to field strip, simple operation, LOOKS LIKE A KILLER....and the price cant be beat!

LOL i also like the MR1 because id you take out the screws for the grips on the handle, you can hide stuff in it. Its like a little box on each side its sweet. :D :)
