Well I am wanting to take this pro and enter tournaments and other large events. I need a marker that can run on air and is electronic. I figure Ion is the way to go, cheap high end marker, highly recommended. If you have a reason why I shouldn't get it please state so. I can get the MR1 and the Ion.

If you can afford it get the MR2, or if your snipeing the Longbow. But for your needs I would go with the MR1 or 2. They are really good guns. And it is better to have a good one.

Spyders are the honda civic of PB guns; they're nothing fancy, but quite reliable and very upgradeable.
my main gun is a spyder but if i was buying a new one I'd get a tippman A-5, or an ION.
The ION is definitely the most bang for your buck if you like vertical feed speedball guns, it costs about $225 and is comparable to $1500 angels after you upgrade the barrel.
The Q loader is an underbarrel Helical magazine that replaces the hopper.
it holds 80 balls and can feed 30 balls per second, excellent for woodsball (my fave) but the lower capacity and slower reload make it shitty for speedball.
I want it because I'm sick of my hopper giving me a way and freakin up my ambush

You better clean up your act soon, we don't need random pointless posters on this forum and you can get banned. Clean up your spelling and grammer aswell, you arn't 10 years old.

Well I have been doing research and I find the ION seems to suit me the best, I just wish it wasn't vertical feed so I could add a red dot optic or something.

you can get an offset sight rail, this allows the use of optics set to the side of
the feed neck

It is based on the standard 3/8 dovetail which i believe the ion has.

Does the Ion even have one? All I see is the fancy body kit and no where to put any sight thingy.

Ah, dovetail is the sight rail. Why didn't you say that in the first place. I think it will be better just making a body for it because if you glue something on then you can't use normal bodies. Looky here: http://www.deadlywind.com/store/dti2/index.html
