I'd take the Ego... Hell I'd probably take a Ego 8 over a FX.

Ego 9 or a vice

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

I would go FX for looks. They are about equal i guess.

I like loud, kicky poppets. I am the last of my people.

Why would you give advice about something you clearly know nothing about to a new player? The Ego is a far better marker in every imaginable way.

With that said the Vice is an EXCELLENT marker for the price and there is a really nice one on the BST here.

If you get an Ego either get a 9 and plank and barb mod it or save up for a 10, the stock 9 had some issues.

I nean i have an AXE but i'd really like to sell it. Which is in the BST right now lol. But I'm just looking for a new marker and those two my friend has and is selling for a low price. But in your opinions, what are some good markers for a price range of $500-$650 used.

Youd be surprised how many people have no idea what the fuck theyre talking about.

The two shoot nothing alike and feel nothing alike. Thats not a knock against either but honestly theyre pretty damn different.


My advice to OP, hold all of these and pick the one that feels best in your hands amd that youre comfortable shooting. If you cant keep a marker working and it doesnt point well for you youll be VERY unhappy with your purchase.


I nean i have an AXE but i'd really like to sell it. Which is in the BST right now lol. But I'm just looking for a new marker and those two my friend has and is selling for a low price. But in your opinions, what are some good markers for a price range of $500-$650 used.


What dont you like about the Axe? $500 is much more than an Ego 9 should be selling for and WAY more than the FX should be.

Honestly, I don't like the way it feels in my hands anymore. I loved it 3 months ago and now, it just doesn't feel right 😕. That's my biggest thing with the AXE. And with the Ego 9, Cru PaintBall in Flint, MI is selling one for $575, and the FX I have heard was okay. The G6R I saw on TradeMyGun along with the Ego 11. I've always liked the ego line especially the 11 and the G6R looked and just keeps sounding better and better each time I see one.

Good lord, 575 for an ego 9 is a rip off.

If you're looking at that red and black g6r on tmg, I would advise getting it but at the same time I want it. Badly. Better beat me to it ;) 525 for a 2011 g6r is a pretty good price.

The fx won't compete with either. The damn thing vibrates a lot when shot, it's obnoxious.

I'm gonna drive out there in a few weeks and if that red and black one is on the wall, it's mine ;) if not, I will probably return to lurking bst forums. The black ones are nice too, but they only inspire half my boners as opposed to all of them. (Don't make it weird.)

Agreed, that ego looks really nice too. A little expensive, but still looks better than the average ego.

I'm really aiming for that B-E-A-UTIFUL Ego😍 but if the price is right, I'll take the black and red G6R or the Dust Black!

Okay made my decision... Trading my AXE plus $275 for the Red and Black G6R! and I was wondering, is the pressure tester REALLY that necessary? or can I live without it?

Yeah definitely get one. It makes tuning a g6r much easier.

Also, a tank that can run lp is normally recommended but some people claim it isn't necessary. I would personally do it to be safe.

Welcome to paintball. You might be able to find a used pressure tester for a decent price.

If you have a ninja tank with an adjustable reg you can easily turn it into a low pressure with spending any money. If want you can pm me and I'll look it up in the manuel and walk you trough it. The most important thing I can't stress enough is make sure your tank is EMPTY before trying anything. Always remember safety first.
