HI, I was just wondering if anybody knows if there is a difference between a GenericIon and Ion in geant4. I am trying to apply a cross-section bias to the process "ionInelastic", and so far i only get the bias to work if i set the particle type to a "GenericIon" and not "Ion". Also, without any biasing at all I get a much higher reaction count when using "GenericIon" instead of "Ion" for the process I am interested in. I find this strange and I haven't had any luck finding a description of the eventual difference between the two. Any help would be appreciated.
