I know everyone is going to say axe, but I want to know what why. What are the pros and cons between each marker

Axe:
+ Shoots smooth and quiet
+ Simple maintenance
+ Feels good in your hands
+ No "plastic" parts
+ Bearing trigger
- Stock barrel needs upgrade
- Stock feed neck needs upgrade
- Heavy
- Regulator not user serviceable
- ASA comes loose

Etha:
+ Shaft 4 2pc barrel
+ Eclipse packaging with manual
+ SL3 regulator
+ Well built, tough and reliable
+ Requires less upgrades out of the box
- Maintenance is easy, but more involved
- Shoots loud/noisy/springy (shot feels terrible imo)
- Feels cheap and "plasticy" in your hands
- Trigger uses a bushing and is sloppy
- Less efficient than the Axe

 

I found this looking online for 5 seconds so dont give me the credit lol.

I personally love my axe pro but its truly your preference. You could love the etha more than the axe or axe over etha...or hate both.

From what I've seen with getting an Axe is you either get one that will have an ASA that you'll have to tighten or one that will have a feedneck that you'll have to lock tight. I've never used the stock barrel on my Axe but I do know that since the bore on the Etha stock barrel is .693 that you might be very inconsistent over the chrono if you're shoot small paint. Compared to and Axe, the Etha has more of a "kick" which would take getting used to.

From what I've seen with getting an Axe is you either get one that will have an ASA that you'll have to tighten or one that will have a feedneck that you'll have to lock tight.  I've had to loctite something on about every gun I have ever owned.

 

I've never used the stock barrel on my Axe but I do know that since the bore on the Etha stock barrel is .693 that you might be very inconsistent over the chrono if you're shoot small paint.   Axe stock bore is .691. This is hardly a reason to choose one over the other...

 

Compared to and Axe, the Etha has more of a "kick" which would take getting used to. disagree

 

The Axe does not have composite parts and comes with a very good stock trigger. The Etha is slightly cheaper and comes with a 2 piece barrel and a case. To be quite honest with you, they are fairly priced as they are about on par with each other to my taste. I'd probably choose the Axe. Although some people dislike its blocky front portion, I like it in my hands.
