It was more then that. I added it up a while back and I almost passed out when it was over $1000. I have added like 5 things sence then including all the virtue stuff so i am scared to do it again:p

I really like the cheetah board when its working good. It eats batteries fast, it doesn't run good on low batteries it acts weird, a boost battery setup would help this alot. It is very pissy when something, even really small, is on the eyes because they are so senitive.

With that being said I am going to get a VL Vlocity in a few weeks and then keep what ever hopper i like better.

You need a gloss Freak back. The dust just throws it off. Other than that...pretty hott. I can't own an Ion just because of yours. I'd do the same thing and throw a ton of money in it. For that money I'd rather have an Ego or Timmy. Just me though.

I have a gloss black cocker threaded freak back already for my orracle so it would be easier to get a new breach then try and find a gloss black imp back.

hey can you get a pic of the bolt out back? does it actually pull it out like the deadlywind or is it just a screw off so you have to remove some stuff?

yes both the version 1(ion milled on sides) and version 2(the square looking cuts milled on sides) are bob.

I know probably 95% will disagree but I don't like the feel of shockers. One of the worst triggers I have ever used, I just don't like the way the trigger moves.

bad ass gun....by why not just go with a shocker? the design of an ion is actually superior to that of the shocker. they just made it with lack-luster heavy low milled parts to keep it cheap. ion has more triggers for versitility, and many who like breakbeam eyes prefer it to a shocker.

i think if i got an ion i would keep the stock body and beat the **** out of it. BOB is worthless imo, its not a spyder, when it jams the bolt pressure can overcome it. really the only thing you would ever need a BOB for is replacing a seal, and with lots of love (lube) you should only have to do that off field, and even then you should be doing a full strip. the only BOB worth it is the stage 5 body or the deadly wind ones, if you are really in a hurry for some reason those are the best. but others do make a hot gun.
