Right off the bat, I know they are both great shooters, but I can find an Axe a lot cheaper than a used G6r. The Axe would hace a redline and a full barrel kit. The g6r would be stock. I'm 6 ft. 2in. and I have pretty big hands. The g6r has a great reach from trigger guard to reg. Is the Axe really that small. Just want to know what you think, thanks.

The axe is not small, the mini is, i would take the g6r out of these. Its really efficient smooth and light plus it looks sick and i dont like the axes ergos. If you want thw axe make sure you hold it first.

The axe has the same length as the g6r it just looks shorter because of the massive foregrip

The Redline and barrels don't really do anything, unless its the same price as a standard Axe don't bother with it.

Well if you play in a bunch of different tournaments and at different fields then the redline is nice but otherwise just a stock axe with maybe a barrel

Well you are comparing a $300 vs. A $500 marker used...

I kept my stock axe over the g6r because it was easier to maintain and I liked the trigger on it more.

If you have different tanks that you swap between , with different output then dont bother with the g6r. The regs must be adjusted every time input pressure changes and you should use the pressure tester each time.

If that is not the case i dont see why you would shoot a axe over a g6r. G6R is lighter, Better trigger, Better ergonomics, Better battery life, Better efficiency, Much lighter, much sexier . Only other downside is "to me" that it is a stack tube .

The Axe may have a good sound signature when it has a boss bolt and if you dont like stacktubes its a single tube- 

I have owned both and would never pick up a axe to replace the G6R even though i love the mini\axe platform. The timmy is just that much better.
