Custom Pro or Ion

I was just curious. I like the Custom Pro, because you can run it on CO2. I like the Ion for speed. What's better overall. Including price. I just want peoples' imput.

Everyones going to say ION, but I say Custom Pro. Its got Tippmann reliability and durability. The design is time tested unlike the ION. Your going to go with the ION though.

I'm not getting this. I was just wondering. They seem like great guns. Overall, the Custom Pro would be cheaper between air and price.

Go Custom Pro. Boo Ion. Boo!

What is the difference between the 98c and a custom pro anyway? I say go with the Ion though.

I could go either way. If it was the Custom Pro or Custom Pro Rt, I'd say get the Ion. If it's the Custom Pro E then I'd say get that as opposed to the Ion.

Like you said, it'd be cheaper to own the Custom Pro because it accepts CO2 without any problems.

The custom pro comes with a lot of things stock that a 98c doesn't. It has a much better barrel, a drop forward, and a vertical adapter is already installed I believe. It also has the ability to have an e-grip.

the 98c can have an egrip, and it doesnt have a vert adapter, the barrel is a werks which still isnt very good, the drop is like an inch long and ive heard the internals are weaker than a 98c's, i would go with the ion

I believe that's what he was referring to when he said "can".

I'm going to have to go with Ion.


Its really comparing apples to oranges. Ion is double the price.

Custom pro E-250
Ion-280

You really suck at math ^pirate^'s
Sureshot3091

even though I AM a ION owner...I would have to say PRO if on a cheap budget....doesn't require HPA like the ION does if going above like what....10bps...so if you're on a cheap budget I'd say PRO

Yes, but it's what I was talking about. Embarassed
Glassjaw

So a custom pro is a 98c with a drop forward and vert feed attached?

Big whoopty.

I still say Ion.
cdacda13

Close glassjaw.
It a 98c with drop, new barrel, and e-grip. Theres not center feed

Either way, I still vote Ion.
rossy11223

I would just get a 98c and add all that stuff on extra. I vote for the ion.
thesh0rtk1d

Im goin with the ion mostly cuz im an ion owner. But if ur low on cash get the CP. On the ion u definetly need a fast hopper(evo2, haloB, etc) and a compressed air tank. I wouldnt ever run co2 threw it. Bad idea.
Psyrecx

Yea, even I dont like Ion's but between the two I would go with the Ion hands down.

Yeah. I know there was a guy at the Tippy Forums. Go to the Marker Gallery and search for Ion+CO2=Ice. It's a sad sad picture.

You would end up paying much more that way.
Kev

If you have to run Co2, you have to buy the Custom. If your willing to spend some get the ION..... .... ... .. .
RoboCop

The Ion will only give you 2 more shots per second above the Custom Pro E. If you buy the new equalizer board, the Custom Pro E can hit 30 bps. The Custom Pro E is also more durable and easier to handle.
Diceman

Custom pro was a waste of time
Jackal14

Both guns are compatable with co2, just in the Ion's case it HAS to have anit-s. tube in it. All in all the Ion is better because you have the speed, air effecient, good accuracy stock, good stock reg. Im also pretty sure its about a half pound lighter then the 98 E, and the Ion is more compact and alot smaller then the 98.
Roll Tide

I have a an Ion and a Custom Pro E, and neither has given me any trouble. I like the feel of the Ion much better, and it's easier to move with. I vote Ion over Custom Pro E.

The Ion also is fully electro pneumatic. The Custom Pro is still mech

My Custom Pro E runs at 400 psi

That's pretty good, but stock, it runs at 850, and the Ion runs at or below 200.
Nickodemus

The ion is probably the best deal going for a quality entry level electric marker. However, after spending $100 on a hopper and $200 on a tank, I would be inclined to spend more then the ion price on a better marker. I don't like the 98 only because everyone has them. I feel the same thing is happening for the ion with the new speedball crowd.
Apples and Oranges - depends on the player. I run CO2 out of necessity since I cannot get HPA filled, and I have kept it all mechanical to avoid breakage and needing batteries. As you see everyone has their personal preference.
g36 monkey

I say custom pro even though we all knew i was gonna say that. Its got the tippmann durability and its very upgradable.
P8ntBallKing10

i have a 98c but i'd have to go with a pro Cool
Ghostslinger

ion sucks compared to when ive shot it and when i use turbo on the Pro E! go Pro and get a Pro lol Salut but i say Pro cuz im a tippmann guy and i dont like how sp is makin it expensive for new ppl wanting a nice gun (HPA and loaders i mean)
