I'm hearing several good things about the Axe, but I love love love the design of the Reflex. The Axe may be a bit too small for me at 6'2, but I'm not sure. Which company of the two would I be better off with as far as support and what not? How decent is the maintenance on either of the markers?

Thanks for any help. And I'm also open to suggestions on any other guns in this price range.

I Really like my 2012 Reflex. One review that sold me on the Reflex was the SticktoDrum This guy loves his Axe(if you go back and look at his other vids you will see just how much he likes his Axe) and then goes on to say that the 2012 Reflex is a better marker. Bam, Sold.

Since I have had this marker, my first electronic, I have run about 15 cases through it. Last week ended up having an air leak behind the trigger, I investigated and found it was coming from the solenoid. The base was cracked. Instead of buying a new solenoid I took it back to Dye, since it was still under warranty they replaced all the shims in the regulator and a new solenoid at no cost AND had the marker back to me in a two day turn around. This marker shoots FF'nn lasers, ropes, whatever, I really enjoy it.

The Axe is a fairly large marker, but keep in mind that you can also buy a Nummech grip extender for it if you find it's too small.

axe, the gun has more potential, the proto rail bolt engine is kinda meh. The efficiency out of that thing isnt the greatest.

Let's be honest here, what do you want, a poppit or a spool? If you.want a poppit, get the axe. If you like spools more get the reflex.rail

I'm 6'3 and I am purchasing an axe as a replacement to my old marker soon, the reflex rail has low efficiency but is really smooth and if you want a reflex rail then get the 2012 model. The 2013 is $50-100 more and has no differences except for coloring
