Question Axe Vs. Drone Dx

I can buy 1 gun and have enough money for NECESSARY upgrades. I have heard good things and bad things but I have not seen or shot any Mac dev in person.
I am also looking at used geo 2.05, fusion fx.

NO BST HERE.

OP: Between the axe and the drone dx, I would recommend the Drone. It is a decent spool valve that has a simple design. It is very reliable, easy to maintain, and gets decent efficiency. Macdev also has great CS.

The axe is a good marker as well. It is an inline poppet instead of a spool. It is also reliable, will be more efficient and about the same reliability. The axe does feels weird to some people though.

If you look at your local field, I am sure someone has an axe that you can test out and see if you like the feel. For the drone, see if anyone has one or a clone vx or droid. While the droid and clone will be smoother than the drone, it will give you an idea of how the drone will feel in your hands. After that, then you decide which one you like.

On another note, the drone will be good stock out of the box. For the axe, I would suggest upgrading the barrel and looking into a different bolt (Boss, lurker, etc..).

I sold my Axe to buy a drone DX but I think I am just going to buy another Axe. The Axe is more quiet than the Axe which is a big deal to me. For no reason. Just that I like quiet. But I'm still not completely made up yet. I'm in such a bad position. In two things right now. 1 Axe or drone DX. And 2 iPhone 5s or lg g2.

My vote is for the Drone as MacDev makes great products and I cant stand the ergos on the Axe.

All the people at my field whom have owned MacDev guns have since sold them in favor of the Axe or something higher end. All of them had consistency issues with the reg. Same goes for DP guns as well. Two companies we will never recommend to anyone.

Never heard of consitency issue with macdev. They make one the best hp regs around. Personally I would look for a 1)used droid
2) drone dx 3) axe

I actually dislike MD HP regs. My problem wasn't the consistency, but rather the sensitivity when adjusting. I also think the lower part of the reg is kinda poorly designed and the seats are pretty sensitive to debris. I MUCH prefer the SL3 reg, which is why I put one on my clone.

All said, I've never seen an axe put up the same kind of chrono string numbers that I was able to put up with my clone or droid.

My Clone reg is pretty sensitive. But with the pressure gauge now, it doesn't matter. I just set it to my known pressure and it is always within 1-2 FPS of what the range was last time at that pressure.

Yeah, in tournaments I like to check between points and if, for whatever reason, it has crept a little then it seemed like just the smallest twist made my clone jump 10-15 fps. The SL3 with the low pressure spring on my clone was absolutely perfect.

Omg man the bezelles on the g2. ****. I want to go back to iPhone becauseci miss the smoothness. Currently I have a nexus 4 that I bought when I sold my iPhone 5. Now I think I will get the Axe again and the new 5s with fingerprint scanner. I like how the g2 has the snapdragon 800 and ois on the camera but I really miss that smoothness on the iPhone I think I'm going to do iPhone and Axe.

My VX'ed takes a good amount of rotation to adjust the velocity, maybe its because its the older style reg?

One had a Drone, the other had a Clone, the Drone was new, the Clone was used. The Drone's velocity was all over the place as was the Clones. The Drone was sent to Miami twice and was recieved and held for over 8 weeks before the tech said he got to it. It also came back with a missing membrane and a smart assed note saying he needed to replace it.

The clone was new, but it wouldn't hold an average velocity as it would be +/- 30 fps.

Both were sold, the drone owner bought a G6R, the clone owner traded for an Axe+ 400 dollars.
