Default spyder or ion

Bear with me... im selling my outkast and am planning on buying some e-spyder after. But now that ions have gone down, im considering the ion. I barely play anymore and jsut need a simple marker that will get the job done. I only havea 47/3k nitro tank, so id be limited on shots with the ion, and i could buy a spyder pretty cheap and be able to get a few upgrades like feedneck and maybe reg, already have barrel. So what is your opinion and why

Ion for sure. Even if you left it stock, by the time you get an E-Spyder and drop the money into it to make it comparable, the Ion would be your better bet.

Ions blow like the wind.... There about as durable as a paper towel. I gaurentee if you play paintball for a year with the ion you will regret ever buying it =). Besides in resale people want Ions less then they want spyders.

Do you have any basis for that argument? An ion is very durable, they dont scratch up like anno does, you beat the crap out of it lube it every now and again and you are set. They are great markers for someone like xtra who just wants a kickbutt little marker for the few times he does want to play.

As for people wanting ions less then spyders I suggest you take a look around PBN's sales forums and see how high the spyders are selling for.

The thing with an ion is that i only have a 47/3k tank. Im not worried about its durability, i know its durable and know alot about them, but i just do not have enough air power for it and i will not have money to buy another tank. So yeah

Well the basis of my argument is i guess kinda of a wierd circumstance argument.... I dont know how many of you actuly do Superman dives but i do. In doing so sometimes you make a bad move and thus your hopper falls off..... If you have every gotten dust into your ion bolt chamber it sucks bad. Thats what im saying about badly durable.

I dunno if you get both you will be happy but me personaly i dont like ions.....
