Im a newer player that hangs with guys that have played for years and have nice equipment. I was using a rental set up just to play. One of the guys at the field i play has a brand new axe so i demo'ed it for a few minutes and i was sold!

Just picked up my first marker and that being an Axe so now we have two at our feilds and the rest of the crew sit's in envy. Today was my first ligitimate battle day with it and i had 5 kills in one game just sitting back,snapping and dropping balls where they needed to go.

I did use a two peice barrel on it today and it is very stealthy now and deadly accurate!

I really do not have a complaint at all except i had to retighten a couple screws which took two minutes! Using the prophecy hopper with it and it's a great match up!

I did buy the green and brown and have no problem with the color for woodsball purposes

Consistent/Low Pressure - I use my ninja LP reg, very consistent fps/accuracy.
Light - It's pretty light and small - but larger than a mini.

The Air adapter (where you screw on your tank) seems to get loose quite a bit during practice, etc. It's not fun to tighten back up either.

Empire Axe good gun for the price but was not a fan of the board loosing its settings when removing the battery. overall the gun is fairly smooth and had good efficiency and is relatively quiet.

Originally bought a mini because I didn't have the cash for an Axe. I liked the mini but with my big hands, it was hard to hold. Tried my friends Axe and immediately traded in the mini for an Axe!

This gun shoots ropes right out of the box! I love this gun. It feels amazing in my hands and is light weight.

It is easy to program (if you have the shockwave or redline board). My Axe has never let me down! It rarely, and I mean rarely, ever breaks paint.

The bolt assembly is very easy to remove and clean. It takes me about 10-20 to clean it well.

I wouldn't trade my Axe for anything. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about getting serious into paintball if they're willing to throw out a little extra cash but this gun is worth it!

the axe is just a huge letdown. it feels like a larger more rounded mini in the hands. the ergonomics are terrible and the shot quality is nothing to rave about. the efficiency is decent but that's about the only thing going for it.
