Those egos would not be new. The axe isn't really a poppet marker in the standard definition that comes with stacked tube poppet markers. Yes, it qualifies as a pressure controlled poppet, but that is a far different beast, for better or worse.
In the stacked tube poppet range while selecting from new markers, you really are left with the Invasion, the Etek, and the FX under your price point. If the group the Invasion seems to be a fairly clear cut winner....unless you like to sell markers often, in which it tends to take a hit in the used market value.
If you are considering used I'd go for a Vice or Protege unless you need macroless in which case I'd go with the G6R. I don't think you'll do wrong with the invasion but the vice/protege is dirt cheap now and are internally nearly identical to the current g6r. You get the best bang for the buck with them. I prefer them to the Egos I've owned/shot.
