this is true, but since everyone is sick of the ion, if dye made one, it would be the new thing. Then they would get sik of hearing about that gun and go back to the ion. Then dye would make its gun cheaper, then the ion would get cheaper. Pretty soon both would be about $100 each.

Even if competition does come up against the Ion, I doubt it'll go under $200.

High ends won't go under $300. All the other companies, including SP, will continue to make more expensive high end guns (Shockers, Timmies, Timmies, DM4/5/Cs, etc) and they will sell.

Ask anyone, and I think they would say they prefer to have an Ego than an Ion.

Worst comparison I have ever seen in my life. Of course I would rather have a Ferrari than a Chevy, but I don't have four times the money to spend. Not is willing to spend four times the money for less than four times the gun.

I think on tippy somebody had like an angel, ion, a-5, or omen i think it was. If your going to compare guns give them in at least a $100 price range, of course a gun $700 more is going to be wanted more, just some people dont have the money.
