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

Custom pro E-250
Ion-280

You really suck at math ^pirate^'s
Nowhere up there does it say custom pro E
Yes, but it's what I was talking about. Embarassed

Either way, I still vote Ion.

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.

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

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.

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.

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
