I also say the same, except for Invasion. I say that because they're incredibly uncommon, which means if you get a lemon, might be a while until you're playing again. Can't speak for Alien CS.

Depends on what youre looking for. Do you care more about low maintenance and efficiency or more about a smooth and quiet shot? We'll work from there.

^But once you have that sorted out,
It becomes between the Axe and Alien Invasion.

Believe it or not some people still like the Drone, Etek and Reflex...

Also the Invasion isn't on his poll, you guys could at least extrapolate on why you think its a good choice (good shooting for the price, low maintenance, good board).

To me pretty much all LED boards are the same. A good board has an OLED display. Just my opinion.

I just want to know which one you guys think is the best. I know that reflex would probably be the smoothest I haven't done a ton of research yet for drone so maybe its smoother. The etek I believe has best efficiency and matenance. The axe everybody says is just a good all around marker easy matenance, good efficiency smooth.

Personally I would narrow it down to the Axe or Drone. The Etek is a cannon, and the reflex is smooth, but SUPER in-efficient.

I say drone because axes are incredibly common, you wont have anything special. plus its australian :D . But honestly you cant go wrong with either. If the clone GT trigger is any representation of the drone trigger i love it. I dont see the hate for them it felt really nice to toy with.

I think the Etek is the best marker out of the 4. It is the most efficient, has the better packaging (spare parts kit, Really good case,shaft 4 barrel), easiest to maintain, is the most durable and reliable, has the most consistent regulator and planet eclipse is the best customer service. Also The Etek 4 is not a (cannon). It is loud for an electric gun but it is much quieter than mechanical guns.

The etek is as loud as my a5, and the GoG eNMEy is quiter than an etek, and they are both mechanical guns

The etek is very much a cannon bud. and i believe they all have spare parts and good packaging. well maybe not the axe from what ive seen. i believe axes are more efficient too. And while of the 4 i would go etek or drone, the drone or axe are probably the best two

Like a few said, Axe and alien invasion is where this falls. If you want a pure poppit, I say invasion, or if you want spool shooting like gun, I say axe.
Doesn't matter what gun you have, how old you are, what paint you shoot, who your up against, how bad of a day you had... All that matters is that your playing paintball now.

Unless you dislike the ergos on the axe. If thats the case, the drone is the best choice for spool/spool like in that range new

Drone also is a tad loud. There's also the reflex rail which isnt too bad.

I actually like the Etek a lot more than I used to after getting to play with a 4 but I would say MaDev still has the best regs in the game, the only one that might be better would be AKA.

Depends. I don't like the rails. But the Reflex Rails, hell, I would throw away all my ideologies on mid range markers, skip the axe and even the invasion, and pick one of those up in those sexy colors.

:blink: Reflex's are sexy. Actually got one from a trade, and I prefer it over the Axe I traded for. The Axe wins in efficiency and ease of programming (shockwave exclusive), but beyond that, I'll take a Reflex Rail any day. I abhorred the way the Axe feels although that's a personal opinion.
