accuracy just depends on what quality paint you use. And barrel to bore match. As far as kick, the Axe will be a little smoother. Both are great markers.

like bunkerking said - both r great guns ! if u r asking because u r thinking about a backup, then i would just go with another etek so u don't have to carry parts 4 2 different guns ! but i wouldn't b asking for reviews on any paintball equipment since everyone has there own opinions and it will get u know where. so like ppl said in your other threads, just go to fields or stores and try them out as that's the only way to get what fits u best.

I would say you really can't go wrong with either of the markers. I already own an Axe and I am planning on picking up an Etek 3 LT around income tax time as a backup.

I have the lt too and i like it but ive shot an axe and liked it also i just got the etek because of the parts that were on the ego's and geo's like the sl3 and so on the recoil is about the same, but the axe is quieter

Hey guys thanks for all your awesome comments! Here's what I will do buy an etek 3 use it see how I like it, trade it for an axe then use the axe see how I like it a d if I like the etek better I'll trade it back for an etek. And jasonzzz I'll be buying my etek at CRU.

trading is a sure way to lose money ! just try other ppls first as it won't take much to see what fits u better ! u buy a new etek and then u will lose about $100 on trade in and then u get the axe but decide u like the etek and now u lose another $100 plus the price they put on the used gun so say $50 and now u r out $250 ! doesn't make sense !

Have both, I'm usually at CRU on Sunday afternoons, you can try both of mine if you'd like. Etek3 is stock, Axe has some ups.

As Randy said most players are pretty great about letting you shoot their guns and maybe even use them in a game. It's the best way to make a decision and not be out cash in trades/shipping/etc. Then you buy the gun that best fits you.

That good will towards letting you borrow guns works at almost all fields in Michigan, and you should certainly try a gun before you buy it.

When I owned both an Ego 8 and an Axe, the Axe got more playtime by far.
That was my Axe in the vid posted by msonic above

true, when I'm reffing I immediately know when anyone is shooting an etek or an ego. Easiest way to catch little agglets ramping with the rec crowd
