i dont know if i should get a new marker or just keep my etek3 am. i have the ape rampage board for the etek 3. what are some pros and cons on each of the guns. is the reflex rail a popit or spool valve gun. what gun shoots better, smoother, efficient and accurate. and which one is faster

it's just a poppet VS. spool, determine what you want in a marker then go from there. if you do decide to go for the reflex i would suggest looking for an older used Dye Matrix model instead.. you can get a DM 10 for cheaper and it will shoot better.
