-Both have easy maintenance
-Axe is smoother
-Invasion is more efficient
-Both are pretty ugly
-Invasion has a nice case axe has a box
-Invasion is basically a high end (Independence) in a better milled body
-Axe is basically a high end for a mid end price

If you want more efficient, go Invasion
If you want smoother, go Axe

Either way you will be happy picking between the best two markers in the price range

The Invasion is a Poppet valve... Traditionally  this means a hard, loud shot, and a very efficient performance... Now, on todays market, Poppets are getting smoother.... EX: G6r's, LV1's... The spool valve markers are traditionally smooth and not so efficient. So, pick between what you want...

 

AXE: INLINE POPPET (Basically a spooly...)

ALIEN: POPPET

Both are very efficient but invasion gets the edge, axe is smoother and quieter, invasion has better case, axe is macroless, maintenance is simple on both... Honestly, just hold them, choose whichever feels better and you can't go wrong.


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.
