is 15 cases too much for an axe? will i have any problems with it or is it just "broken in"

No you wont have any problems my Etek2 has 90+ cases through it.I dont think you can actually wear out a marker by shooting paint through it 


Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

Breaking in is a myth.  Markers can go through hundreds of thousands even millions of cycles before parts start failing.  You have not done anything negative to the marker shooting 15 cases.  I've shot 15 cases in a single day at scenarios if that means anything.

 

It's all about maintenence.

Oh yeah, my Rail has more than 15 cases through it and I've only had to change the reg seat. Just keep your markers clean and lubed properly. They'll last damn near forever.

15 cases in a day?

yikes....


The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

I'd be more worried about the hit to the wallet.
