If you have 500 for a gun get an alien invasion. Best bang for the buck. If you need a tank and gun and your limit is 500, you could either get a used axe and a 68/4500 or a new G5 and a 68/4500. If you are comfortable working on your own gun then probably a new G5, otherwise a used axe.

Alright thanks for the reply man. Yea I already have a tank it's a Ninja 50/4500, it's just my personal size because I'm a pretty small person for my age. When i grow (if I grow) I'll get the standard 68/4500. Also, I just looked at the invasion it looks pretty damn nice and I've heard from people on my team that alien gear is really good so i might get that instead of the axe. I only put the axe in here because when i was looking around on the forums, everyone mentioned the axe even if it was a DP G5 vs Etha comparison or something like that.

Would you have any idea what feedneck the Invasion uses or if it's easy to maintain? The manual says it may be too small for some hoppers that aren't tournament grade.

The nice thing about an invasion is you do not need to upgrade it at all. If you live to upgrade guns the invasion is not for you. Buy it with the barrel kit (or buy it and get the kit of your choice) and you are done. What hopper do you have?

I'm sure that will fit the alien just fine.

I will say axe over etha every time. Realistically, an etha is just putting lipstick on a pig. It's got a shaft 4, sl3, & oops Asa. That's as far as it goes in the good category. It's got bad, not terrible, but bad efficiency, the kickiest out of the three, & the loudest. The axe, however, is relatively quiet, has decent efficiency, comes in an all metal construction with a platform that's going to last for years. The axe is also going to be smoother on paint. Haven't shot the G5, I have no opinion on it.

Axe > Etha ≥ G5
But honestly how it feels in the hands is very important, and all three of them have different "feels".
