Don't ever make a decision on gear based on someone else's opinion. Do your research, read reviews, and then decide. In my opinion, yes, it is a fine setup to play recball or tourneys with. Depending on what league you may play though, they may not allow it (example: Most leagues ban the color yellow on your gear because typically that fill is used for paint).

Nice setup, but you could always keep upgrading as you obtain more cash and have an even better setup. A marker is a marker, man. Don't let anyone tell you that their Ego or DM is "so much better than your Invert Mini". As long as it shoots 285 FPS consistently, and is well maintained, a marker is as good as the next.

Thanks for th feedback. My old setup included a ion xe so right now the mini has proved to be way better.

I'd pick up a used 4500psi tank instead of a steel tank though. Minis are great guns and with a boss or eigenbolt they shoot that much better. Also preference, but I like lurker eigenbarrels over CP barrels and they are cheaper.

You have to tune the marker after the new bolt is in correct?

Not necessarily, but it is highly recommended.

You almost certainly have to. Tuning on a mini/axe is super easy and I never mess with the dwell. http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3761332 The lurker tuning guide is a few posts down, but I use the main guide, but start at the lurker recommended pressure.

Oh is a new bolt really recommended? Or is the stock one perfect?

The stock one is ok, but on minis/axes I find the bolt to be a worthwhile upgrade. Boss and Lurker put out the best and they're both pretty cheap.

Yea, you don't have to, but the boss or lurker bolt will make a significant difference in your marker

What kind of difference though? Kick? Efficiency?

Yes. Both. It also makes your gun a little quieter and easier on paint.
