the new shockwave is pretty cheap, so would that be a good one to put in it. i know the 1st version boards and poppets had some problems, so would that be my main thing to replace first?

Try shooting it a couple of times and just see if there are any issues with it. Your main things in paintball is to be consistant over the chronograph and have a good paint to barrel match. Try not to rush yourself into "upgrades" right away as it can take away from your cash flow and not enable you to play as often.

If and when you have issues is when you should look to replace parts.
With that said, I know on the Axe's the biggest thing to upgrade is the bolt itself, and this is done to quiet down the sound signature of the marker, enable you to run lower pressures and shoot more brittle paint.

Have fun and play often!

kind of the problem with the sport... people think you need to have a $1000 gun, and if you cant afford one then get every upgrade on a cheaper solution

I doubt you'll run into any version 1 problems. That particular batch was not a large run, and if you were in need of an updated poppit or board, Empire/Invert would hook you up, no problem. A friend of mine did a very comprehensive write-up on the poppit issue, should still be a sticky in the Invert Mini section.

I have a mini myself. And so far I have upgraded the Asa, bolt and a Stiffi barrel. And theres still a few more upgrades I would like to get.

If you are going to get a upgrade for it. I would say the first one should be either a new barrel, or a new bolt.

If you're going for a new barrel and don't plan on getting one with inserts then I would find a paint you enjoy shooting and is within your price range and then buy a barrel to match the bore size.

The Redline is a great idea, and I love the Boss Bolt

i personally have a mini with an upgraded barrel asa tech t bolt and spring kit and grips and the one i suggest the most would be the bolt it makes it whisper but if you want a lot of compliments on your gun then you can get some pretty sexy grips at ansgear
