I've had one for quite a while and haven't had any major problems with mine. Once or twice it wouldn't fire and I had no idea why then i just had to turn up the velocity. I don't know why it did that though. People say that the barrel scratches easily and my barrel deffinetly has some scuff marks.

All in all this is deffinetly a good starting gun he'll save money to help pay for a more expensive gun in the future if he decides he wants to keep playing.

Tell your brother to save up for a bottom-of-the-line spyder... $45 for a Victor II and he will have a gun that is far superior in terms of craftsmanship, and is a very good starting platform if he wants to add aftermarket parts to it. I've seen some upped victors that compete with spyder fenix's and pilots.

I have a Prodigy, no problems with it so far. Not a bad deal for $50 brand new.

I got it on clearance at Wal-Mart a while back. They go cheap on e-bay too. It's been just as dependable as any other pb gun I have. It is limited to 7 bps though, you can here it skip when you fire it. The stock barrel was just as good as the aftermarket one I bought for it. The Maxis is a little better if you can find one cheap on e-bay.

As far as the reviews go they have to be taken with a grain of salt. Some people just post crap to be what they think is funny and others don't have the experience to make the claims that they do. It's still worth reading though.

I would own a Maxis/Prodigy before I would get an Ion though. I despise belly button guns and people that jump on bandwagons so they can be part of the "in" crowd. I might get one when they are no longer cool and everyone is selling them off really cheap though.

No, not really. I believe they are probably a good design for their price but don't deserve the hype. They are being bought up left and right and some people I respect are getting rid of them almost as fast. It's not that they are bad I think just not what people expected. They tried them and don't want them anymore. I will buy one, use it for awhile and sell it when I am done jsut to see what they are like. After about a year or two more their price will stabilze a little closer to their real worth.

Back closer to the topic, the Prodigy and Orion I own are good pb guns but suffer from anti-hype. They do the same thing an Ion does; launch paintballs at 300fps. Unfortunately they were born on the wrong side of the tracks(VL/BE). They do the job though. Both my VL guns are backups and loaners now though, Tippmanns and the AMG Classic were more my type of guns and I enjoy playing pump also.

I do like to tear things apart and see what makes them tick, hence I will in my lifetime probably buy and sell one gun of every type sooner or later ( I think a cocker may be next).

I despise hype, I didn't watch Star Wars for about ten years because I got sick and tired of all the stupidity that went with the marketing. It was a good movie though. Mad Max was better but didn't even catch on until like the third movie was shown in the US.

I refuse to be a sheep, or at least I want to be off to the uncrowded side of the herd where it smells a little better. LOL
