Umm I've owned a Mini and an 06 Ego at the same time, yes I bitched about the Mini endlessly because it was a pain to get working but I did get it working well and honestly I've shot them both one after the other, played games with both in the same day and I'll never use a Mini over an Ego....
Yes some people go with an Ego because it's somewhat of a fad but the Ego is a truly solid marker, very easy to maintain, very reliable, it's accurate and efficient and has never failed me. Quite simply what it comes down to is Ego = High end, Mini = Low end, you're comparing apples to oranges.
yea but your seeing this from the point of view of someone who could easily efford one
of course the egos better theres a 700 dollar difference at least
my paintball field is kind of in the middle of the hood and everyone sells all the own just to get a damn ego
thats what i was ranting over
i feel like its no worth it when you don't have the money to spare
