I have an offer for an angel A1 and a 72ci tank out of hydro for my Pm8. Is this a decent trade in my favor? How do the markers match up i really just want to know which one is a better shooter


sounds like wayne brady is gonna have to choke a bitch.

i would keep the pm8!! angels i have shot, but to me personally the pm8 feels better! will be more reliable! atleast mine was, my one teamate use to shoot an angel and it would have problems...parts for the pm8 are easier to find. the angel just is a weird design to me. i love the ergonomics on the pm8, and i also just think it looks better. i thought it was smoother, but i did tune mine! i don't know about the angels efficiency to compare but for 5 man the pm8 held up fine for me...i dont know what else to say. me personally would not trade, i'd keep the pm8

If it's a fly, go for it. A regular a1? hell no. I traded my pm8 for a fly and never looked back, (Except when thinking of getting another spool), however the a1 I had was just too much trouble. Fly<pm8<a1

NO, Pm8's are amazing, axes are not comparable. They are basically a slimmed down dm9,

I've owned both and the angel walked the dog on the pm8. The pm had an orange bolt, lucky board with m7 chip, laser eyes, lucky barrel and the angel was stock. The pm8 just felt sluggish in comparison to the angel and the pointability wasn't as good. Shot quality was about the same but I could hit a.higher ROF with the angel. Also the build quality, fit and finish on the angel was way beyond the pm8.

Frankly the pm8 was just a meh marker.

Are you sure you're talking about a regular a1? their build quality was trash! The a1 fly, even though an a1, had alot of extra trimming compared to the a1 (grips, breech, eye covers, reg) I am confused, smoothness of an stock a1? They are loud af, and definitely not smooth compared to the pm8, sure after tuning it alittle you can get it down to around a stock pm8 but it just can't be as smooth as a pm8. I'm a huge Angel fan but even I'm not to sure about what you stated?

It was a fly. What can I say, the damn thing shot good. The pm8 shot nice, but it wasn't particularly spectacular. But then spoolies never really did get me excited shooting them.
