lookin to buy somethin within the range of 400 to 500, i was lookin at the etha and axe, lookin to hear from people whove owned the two and their opinions and if there is any other markers that youd suggest instead, and should i buy retail or used?

used is always a good option when available. I personally don't like the axe but, there are alot of people who do.
It is not my prerogative to please you.

2 things:

I would be more entitled to help you if you used correct grammar and spelling.


Second, if you buy used then buy from someone with HIGH positive feedback.

sorry about the language, may I have your opinion on markers like the drone and any other markers you'd suggest instead of those other two?

I have never shot the Drone or the Crossover before but out of those 4 markers I can say that the Axe is one of the best. The Etha is an overpriced little marker that does not come with notable features and the Tippmann just went down in price so I am just going to assume it is not as good as the Etha.


I would rank this:

Used BL Marq 6 > Used BL Protage OR Used Axe > Used Drone > Used Etha > Used Crossover



I have shot all of these besides the drone and crossover and the Marq 6 is my favorite. The Axe and the Protage are both tied but I would go with the Axe because it is newer.

Another wonderful option would be the 2012 Alien Invasion. You can buy it new for $500 off of the alien website. It is a highend priced as a midend marker. It shoots better than my friends ego10, and people say its comparable to a g6r.

It's controversial and it doesn't include the Drone and Invasion, but that's mostly my take on the mid-ends (read: Reflex and Etha are worse choices). Personally, I like the Crossover and the Axe both more than the Etek4. I've never gotten to use an Invasion, and the Drone is pretty nice except it has a very bad trigger. I find the Drone trigger to be worse than the Crossover. I like the Axe trigger the best out of all of them, but have found the Crossover has grown on me over the Axe - easier to maintain, same efficiency, and smoother shot. Now if only the Crossover was autococker threaded and had an On/Off ASA.
