Geo 2 and Ego 7 or 8 are solid choices. Owned an Axe and still owe a couple of Mini's for friends I take to the field. Enjoyed all of them. Piece of advice....
Buy a quality used marker and if it's not your cup of tea trade it for something else.

Dude get an Etha. PE Customer Service is the bomb and the gun works well. I have an Etha and it takes a beating!!!

If you want a pump it depends on what your preference. For a milsim pump the empire trracer is good but is not very air efficiant. Although what i recomend you do is buy a cheap trilidgy pump. Get a good single trigger frame and a cp regulater. You will have a great setup and since you are use to having a speedball gun than it wont feel much different.

If you have all the newest parts in your mini it should be firing pretty smooth. Honestly I'd spend the $$ on paint and focus on upping your game.

For what it's worth, I own a dm12 and love it. After using ego's for many seasons I wouldn't go back, don't like the noise level, felt recoil, or the ergonomics of the guns. Before my m12 I had a m9, m8, m7, etc.. honestly they all smooth very similar when properly tuned and broken in. Probably the same, but I'd like to tell myself the 12 is just a hair smoother

If your dead set on getting a new gun best thing to do it ask people at the field if you can throw a pod through their gun and see what you like the most.

The way I see it, you basically go big right away and spend $1000 on a high end marker, or you can work yourself up the ladder by starting out with mid-end marker and trading up.

For just a mid end gun I would look into a Planet Eclipse Etha or a Drone DX. Then get a Ninja 68/4500 or whatever size best fits you. As for a hopper get a Virtue Spire. All in all that would be around $810 if you go with the Drone leaving $190 for gear.

I'd say if you're a beginner, stay away from a Used Luxe. If there is a Luxe being passed around on here like a $2 hooker, I can guarantee you it's a lemon. They're hard to maintain for beginners. I personally own one myself, and I've been playing for years.

Good marker under 1000? If you don't mind tuning, a G6R, a used Geo 2.1 or maybe even a 3. Macdev Clone GT used... Etek 4's are nice too.

I'd take a look at some older egos. Ego 9s can be found for around 550. Great shooters and easy maintenance

used Geo 2.1 for about $650, reliable and smooth high end tournament marker,
nothing else. Only used markers over $1000 can overwhelm it
