i was wondering does any1 have any experiences with the Smart Parts fighter jersey and pant series could i get your pros? or cons? or a used mostly stock ion what are some pros or cons? and finally anybody that has or had a freak kit is it worth it if you are just rec balling for now?

i recently got some money for keeping my grades up this year so far(4.0gpa) and know i want to spend it on paintball but im trying to decide between if i want to get some new clothes, a new(to me) gun, or a barrel kit as i cannot make my mind up...i will have a total of $100 dollars so i know thats not alot in the paintball world but its what i have right now...thanks for any info anyone has on these

It really depends on what you need, if you already have a jersey and pants I wouldn't get them. If you have a compressed air tank and a good hopper then I would consider getting the Ion.

If you do get the Ion and it's all stock you would probably have to get a feedneck for it, they are good guns and they don't require alot of mantinence.

I would put off getting a barrel kit cause if you do get if for a Spyder and then change guns (say an Ion or something with an Autococker threads) then you can't use it.

If he gets a barrel kit like The Freak, all he would have to do is buy another back for it & not burn that money if he decides to get another marker down the road.

True but backs are some what expensive aren't they?

Freak backs, anywhere from $20 to $45. I paid $40 for a front & back then bought another back for a cocker for $42 shipped.
