From what I can tell, the Ion and the Vibe regs are the same. Stock, as OP stated. Someone correct me on this if I'm wrong. They're floating poppet designs, and excluding the pressure relief mechanism, usually have like 2 moving seals or so.

Just like the Palmer's Stab, which is also a floating poppet design. And has similar seals.

Which leads me to strongly question this recommendation and the previous claims. So be specific.

Especially when it means dropping $90 on a new reg on for no good reason.
He posts videos of himself on Youtube never leaving the furthest back bunker.
Even when playing against rental noobs, he is immobilized.
Logic and reason are anathema to him; but this does not deter him from prattling on.
He is the most interesting player in the world.

Stock Ion reg works great on CO2. As mentioned, the Vibe reg works even better - as well as being less stupid an adjustment method.

I've used both on straight CO2, from an antisiphon, and from a remote.

But, an antisiphon tank adds an extra level of protection. Cheap change to make if you can dedicate the tank to that setup.

For what it's worth I've had a lot of success using ion/shocker regs on a/s co2. They actually work really well for me on them, us em' on an old gen-e trix.
