Being a small business myself I am all for companies like Allen. Will say the Ion is one pretty stick.
To give an idea of the action, but understand there are differences, but if I were to fish my BIIx I would be inclined to take the Icon for a back up. If I were to fish my JWF, the AST would be the back up.
