FX... It's a Stacked Tube Poppet so it is more air efficient. It's very easy to maintain. It's very light weight. It has a fully customizable OLED board. Best of all it's not a DP Dump Valve marker...

Also the reason why I bought my FX is because Techt makes amazing upgrades for it. Well worth it.

Don't know if you've bought yet but I would high recommend NOT going with the G4. Don't get me wrong when the gun was working it was fantastic. The problem is it only worked a fourth of the time! I finally for some sense and traded it and picked up a fusion fx because I'm a huge fan of the way they feel in my hands. I have not had any problems with the fx yet, but I've only had for a few weeks but seems very easy to maintain. I'd go with fx

I am entirely pleased with my G4 and am looking at getting a second one as a back up. I have given serious thought to the G5, but am rethinking that. I love the no Macroline feature. However, it appears to need a lower output pressure from the HPA tank. I want to make sure my tank is switchable between all my guns, and I want to maintain the higher output pressure.

I absolutely would recommend the G4.

The G5 isn't a joke, I've owned one for 1 year and It's a very nice gun for the price. Smokes the hell out of the FX but not sure about the Elite. Anyway it's a good gun, I only traded it because I upgraded to a Marq.

I feel like the G5 is under rated, I have really enjoyed mine. It's not the most efficient but it's fun to shoot. I was disappointed with my fx until I threw some techt stuff in it, now it's shooting much better and I am far happier with it now. I really like its efficiency and overall it's a pretty good gun. Depending on some different guns I have my eye on I may sell my FX that's all techt out. Pm me if you're interested.

Getting right to it....the G5. I own a G5 and a good friend of mine has an FX. It has a pretty good shot but the G5 has a much smoother and quiet shot. The FX probably has better efficiency being that its a poppet valve marker but I still think the G5 is a better choice. Plus the G5 trigger is one of the best around, I have shot many high end markers and I think it competes with them. It has zero side to side play. I think you should take the G5

If you can pick up a used fx there amazing, I have owned 2 since they came out and never have an issue with either. If your gonna spend the money on a new one then just get the fusion elite.

Honestly, depends on how much you want to spend. All three will work for you and each have certain plus factors. The G4 has plenty of upgrades our there for it, the G5 is the latest and greatest in it's design, and the FX will be more air efficient. But none of these are a for sure deciding factor as they're all three good markers.
I would recommend shooting the G4/G5 and the FX, then decide. I've had experience with all three and I currently own a G5 until my FE marker arrives.
