I say go with the G5. It cost much less and has a nicer trigger. It also has a nice bolt system. The FX shoots rough and has a terrible bolt/detent setup that causes more problems than it fixes.

I feel that the FX was a downgrade from the original fusion. It does not shoot as nice as the past fusions. I know because I have had both side by side.

The only thing the FX has on the G5 is the OLED board but the oled is overated. You can get an OLED when APE releases their board for the G5.

G5. I'm partial to spools. Smooth, simple, macroless.

The FX will get better efficiency and has the OLED.

You'll be able to get an OLED down the road with the G5 though.

The kick in a stock FX surprised me, getting LAW RAM for sure... alot more kick than the F7 and f8 or any other electro i've shot. Could be due to the lighter weight of the FX compared to it's parents.

I've shot a G3 and G4 and both were smooth... it's really preference and price to you.

If I could, I'd own both but I've always liked the fx look, also have an Etek3 and the FX is much lighter.

i just dont care for the random fx issues like detents causing the bolt to stick forward.. not to mention the kick and loudness.

I never really liked the APE stuff for the G3 or G4 for two reasons, the grips are hard plastic and the OLED is on the right side of the frame. I am right handed making looking at the display awkward.

My FX has the display on the back which makes it good for lefties and righties.

alot of people love the feel of the hard thin grips, thats why they are like that.

oled on the rear of the frame is in no way shape or form easier to view.


you can get a brand new invasion or drone for the cost of an fx. those are more bang for your buck at the $500 range. the G5 is killllling it at the $300 range.

my FX isn't loud at all, but I do have the LAW Ram, TechT Hush bolt and Deadlywind Fibur barrel. I own both markers and can honestly say I can't choose between the two. As they sit at this very moment, I'd have to choose the FX only because the G5 isn't broken in and butter smooth yet.

Fx is an ok gun.. Stock there is a lot of barrel rise and ping noise but once you get the hush bolt pro and the law ram it feels like a completely different gun
