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.
