Um, what are you looking for, a marker, or upgrades? AND BTW, delete your other post please, you have two of them probably by accident...

If your looking for a marker, get a spyder imagine, if your looking for upgrades... Tell us what you've got right now...

If you've got a spyder, get an ACS bolt, then get a new barel, maybe a hopper too. Thats all you need for a spyder, unless you want to spend tons of money.

Well, if your new, an ion might be too complicated, get a spyder if this is gonna be your first marker.

stock Ion should run you about $200 but cheaper deals can be found. Remember, the cheaper it is the higher chances of it being abused...

well, IMHO, i recommend spending that 150 bucks towards paint and play time at your local feild. also, 150 bukcs spent on a good couple days at the feild will make you a LOT better than buying an ion will.

just my .02 though....

For all of them.

All good thoughts.

You could take your money now and finish up'g your Spyder.

Pros
Cool to have an up'd not stock Spyder
You get experience from working on it
When you do get a new gun you have a nice backup
Cons
You are still shooting a Blow back marker
Since it is not stock there are more issues (potentially)
You spend $1000 on a Spyder

Or take your money add a little and get an Ion
Pros
Good entry level tournament marker
Less kick= better accuracy
lighter weight
Cons
You will need a few upgrades right off the bat (feedneck, and maybe a barrel)
Fast hopper and HPA not necessary, but a good idea
Most of your Spyder parts wont fit on it
You get made fun of for having an Ion (until you bunker them with it )

Or you could use your money and get paint, air and field time
Pros
You get mad skills using your Spyder and practicing
You have FUN!!!
Cons
a few welts here and there (still part of the fun)

OK that was my .02
