hello to anybody reading this, i need your help. i am looking to make a large upgrade and im going to be purchasing a new marker. but i cant decide on what i want to get.

These are what i want in a gun:
  • Feels good in the hand
  • easy maintenance
  • id prefer a spoolie because they are more quiet and smoother
  • reliable
  • consistent
  • lightweight
  • id prefer it to be macroless(but if there is a gun that matches all other categories perfectly, i will consider it)
  • 300-450 price range

If i forgot a category please let me know and i will answer you.
Thank you to anyone who helps me out!

You can find a used axe in that price range. Matches everything you want

Yeah I was leaning toward that but I want to hear other people's opinion and advice. I'm open to any suggestions basically.

Except for the Spoolie part.

Edit: and the feels good in the hands part.

Axe + Lurker bolt = smooth as a DM with better efficiency and being SUPER gentle on paint.

Well the axe is an inline poppet so I know it's not a true spool but it's pretty smooth just like a spool. Also is easier to maintain than a spool because it has less orings than a normal spool would have. Some people actually like the feel of the axe in their hands so I would go to the store and see if you can hold it a bit.

If you really want a true spool you could find a nice used pm8, old dm, and maybe a drone dx. Only thing is they all have a macroline

Give a Tippmann crossover a try. When I was looking at em I was very impressed comfy little shooter with good ergos IMHO for myself. Seems to check off every one of you wants.

Well, its not a spoolie but the 2012 Invasion fits every other category. You can also tune an invasion in to make it as smooth as a spool. And maybe as quiet as well. You can find one used for 450ish and new for 500.

I really liked the Alien I had a chance to use, but that's a bit of an exaggeration to say the least.

According to Jack there is a way to tune it to make it incredibly smooth, but you lose consistency. He said he rather tell people how to make it decently smooth with better consistency than incredibly smooth and meh consistency.

Interesting, it would still have higher reciprocating mass than most spoolies and have the ram hitting the valve but if the one I shot was untuned its not unbelieveable that you could get one even smoother/quieter.

Well it could have been tuned, just a different way. You can tune it any way you want whether you want best consistency, most smoothness. Jack tunes them before he ships them for the consistency. Im sure as smooth as a spool is a slight exaggeration but definitely smoother than lots of poppits if you tune it right.

I believe it, the Alien I shot was smoother than any Etek or Ego I've shot.

An used axe and eigenbolt is probably the best way to go. if you like it to be more simpler swap the eigen for a boss bolt
