That plastic isn't my personal issue with an Ion, it's the rubber on top of the plastic that bugs the **** outa me. It's just hard to clean quickly after a game and keep clean on my shelf. Damned rubber picks up dust quicker 'n a *****.

As for Ted... He doesn't like the Ion platform being picked out as a "nube" gun. I think that it is not, it is merely shoddy SP quality that allows the guns to be made for so cheap. With aftermarket parts and the proper shooter, Ions will hang with the best. The platform that they created is one of the best done to date, and will most likely be one of the more prominent designs in the future. Don't bash the Ion just yet.

In that price range that the PMR's in (not going to read the whole thread).... Alias. Hands down. Best shooting gun for under $300. Save up the extra and bide your time. It will be worth it.

On second thought, wait a while longer than it takes you to raise the money for it. I personally wouldn't trust a 15y/o with one of my Timmies, just how I am, they're far more advanced than a run 'o the mill Spyder. I'd wait until about your birthday, then ask for money to get a gun. About that time, prices will have dropped enough that you can buy the gun and then go playing for your birthday. Your Pilot is more than enough for rec play... I don't use anything more than my Traccer normally when I go rec ballin'.

Bigred, I find your simile to be offensive to women. I rarely see any *****'s picking up dust.

Ion beats PMR. I've owned both.

Ive noticed an extreme hatred towards the PMR from Ace latly...
After I sell the $65 worth of stuff, it's a $120 ION with the following ups:
  • Dust back GC (Considered better then Lucky 5.1's / Private clone)
  • Blue Matrix eyes
  • Clamping feedneck
  • SP 360 QEV
  • NDZ Rake Trigger (I think... it's the one that goes straight and hooks at the end)
  • Virtue Easy On
  • GC Bolt
  • S-Rail
  • SP On/Off (wich will be gone shortly and replaced by a better one)
  • Stock reg (replaced by Hyper 2 in a bit)

I'd rather pay $120 for a more efficient BOB system that not only runs smoother (absolutely no kick with this body) but quieter than the PMR.

...and don't even get me started on how cheap the SLG feels to me.

My eyes skipped your second to last sentence... LMFAO! Only if they're ugly and fat, Claus, only if they're ugly and fat...


You be crazy TTam, a properly tuned Alias is better than any PMR any day of the week!

Troof.

He's speaking of personal preference... Maybe he likes leaks and inconsistency.
