Ok so I could get one of these for really cheap $200 and am thinkin of getting one (note most of the time woodsball/speedsball) just looking for a new marker to replace my v1 mini. So it is between this and a PE etha

Neither of those will really be an upgrade from your Mini. Save up for a used supergun.

For $200 you would be crazy to pass on the Cross Over.

My only problems is would it hold it's own in speedball with other decent markers

Then why are you asking us if youre going to defend your purchase either way?

How much would the Etha cost you? I find its superior to the Crossover but doesnt have a mechanical option.

I am not buying the crossover for the mechanical purpose and the etha is 390 or so

I'm with Playdoh on this, neither are worth you spending your money on, save up for a used supergun or used Axe. If you were thinking about an Etha, get a used Axe for $250-$300. Or save up and get a high-end used like an Ego or Geo for $600-700. A Mini will work for snake and the Crossover will not offer any important improvements.

I get were both of you guys are coming from and you guys are right but i will never own an axe cause i hate the feel of my mini and have been toughing it out for a couple years now so i will probably just get a bob long or a PE high end

Honestly, for 200 you are indeed crazy for leaving the cross over behind. It is pretty much the same as the Etha and will work fine. With the added benefit you can switch between mechanical and electronic on the spot. It is a good marker and should serve you well. You can then sell the mini and start saving up for a nice high end marker.

Also, there quite biased towards the Axe on these boards...

The Crossover and Etha are really nothing alike.

I beg to differ. They are both pretty equal to each other. They both shoot very well. I would say in terms of efficiency that the Crossover will be slightly better not to mention that the crossover would shoot smoother then the Etha. After all the Etha has a bit of a kick to it.


Also, I do prefer planet eclipse markers myself but for 200 dollars, I would strongly recommend the Crossover. It is not a bad price to pay at all for it.

The bolt systems are very different, one is macroless, the Crossover can go mechanical...

I would also agree that the Crossover is a good deal at $200 if its in good condition. If you don't like it more than the Mini you can always sell it.

I really do not see how I can be any more clear that these markers, that are both around the same price range, have an almost identical performance to each others, in terms of efficiency, kick etc. Macroless or not has no impact on the performance of these markers.

The internal operation of the markers insides, do effect how the marker operates and handles, however for low and mid level markers this is rather negligible.

Also you do know what the definition of "performs" is right?
