i suggest the PMR.I currently own one,and it is good for the price.It is fairly smooth and super quiet.Overall,a good value for about $200 used.

Mini all day, coming from a guy who has multiple ions. I guess it's really more what you're looking for out of your gear. I like my ions for woodsball and walk on games. I actually just played with a mini two sundays ago, thing was amazing and shot ropes right out of the box.

Ion for woodsball and even recball


Mini if you're serious about playing hard :tup:

Meh they both have ups and downs... alot of peeps complain about the ions but there pretty nice shooters for the price and you can get an awesome fully up'ed one for the price of an azodin blitz...it would save you money and the options are limitless....The mini is a better out of the box shooter, but has less aftermarket parts but better resale....in the end its really what you want it for, and fyi ions are great back ups.

I'm having a tough time deciding between a 2011 Proto Rail and a Invert Mini. I found a place that sells them both at about the same price.

Get the Mini, there pretty nice guns. The rails are good but the Minis have better resale in my opinion.

Yes I would say the Mini, it a great gun but it's one of those guns where there is a chance of getting a faulty marker.

If your looking to go used for a great price you can pick up an Ion for like 60 bucks which is almost unbeatable. The mini is alright but skip it if you really want it and go to an Axe. If you demand new products check out the GOG lineup as others have said.

Minis are ok I guess. But the extcy I found to be a ton better. The mini I got to use from a teammate for recball, and I was not pleased. The extcy.

mini will be smoother than the ion and probably more efficient. the ion will need more upgrades to get it ti the performance level of the mini. If you have the extra money buy an axe (got mine for $380 bnib and its an amazing gun.

Im a HUGE Ion fan,I bought one when they 1st came out and have had a dozen Ions&SP8s,recommened to Ion XE or GoG models with the bolt out back versions,cheap,easy to upgrade
That being said to a new player I recommened an Mini version 3 with newer style reg and soleniod or Axe,if I were to buy a new gun i would invest in one,maitenece is easiest out there,air efficiancy is best for a currrent mid end gun.personally I HATE the look of them,gripframes arent my thing,i have man sized hands,they feel a little funny.About 1/2 the guys i play with have Axes or Minis,they almost never have problems
Dont buy a PMR,theyre super fussy and maintenaence sucks,double the orings to replace of most spool valve guns,total air hogs,kick like a mule, I have 2 of them,one I got with a Virtue board& TechT bolt for $80 and i still dont like it,they blow soleniods and leek constantly,Id sell it but my 12yr old nephew likes them,he doesnt have to maintain it thou I do
