I love the axe. I shot one all season in the 2012 psp season and will shoot them again in 2013. They're super reliable and easy to fix if they go down! For the price there is nothing better on the market hands down. The axe shoots great and the more paint you put through it the better it shoots. Just make sure you lube your poppit everytime you play and you're good to go!

Thus can keep up with a lot of high end guns especially if you have fast trigger fingers. It is a boring but simple design. No fanciness here just straight get down to business attitude. Setting up and breaking down are quiet easy. If you are looking for a no nonsense marker that can throw down with the best of them the Axe is a perfect choice.

Got this marker LNIB, with everything stock included. Tested out in my backyard, shoots ropes and is very accurate. My only problem is that I don't like the feedneck, it's a bit of a pain to use sometimes. Also going to replace the stock barrel as soon as I can. Haven't used it in speedball yet, but looking to use go play soon. Overall, seems like a great marker for the price!

I love this gun, I've had for a year now and I haven't had ANY problems with it, i can go a couple of weeks without cleaning and lubing and it shoots fine. The only thing that i don't like about the marker is the stock barrel, i think it's a .692 bore size, which is a really big. Back a few years ago that would've been a perfect bore size put now the paint is smaller, a .689 would be perfect. So if you buy this gun i recommend that you also get a new barrel.

Be forewarned, I'm an Empire Fanboy...

However, I have shot Dyes, Protos, Egos, Ethas and I love my Axe Pro. I picked up one of the limited Axe Pro's with the Infamous 'Dropping Bombs' stencilling. With a Redline grip or Virtue board this gun can hang with the $1250 guns easily, as evidenced by X-Factor and Infamous placing well all this past year.

As a larger player I added a Nummech Grip Extender for a more comfortable fit.

My only beef is that I fried my original Axe (over 2 years out of it though) after getting some water in between the grip and body. This shorted out the board. I ended up putting a Redline on and reselling it to a friend, and have not heard a single complaint.
