I have the option between a dust black and polished red Vicious Axe Pro or a all purple Ego 11 for around the same price around the same condition. I could get the Axe locally or the Ego elsewhere. Which option should i go for?

Reason: Spelt axe wrong
I've owned many axes (from stock to fully up'd pros) and I've had a few ego 11s. I'd easily take the ego over the axe any day. I feel they're most consistent, better efficiency, and I like the feel of them much more.
Axes are great starter / loaner guns, and I don't value a team edition or custom anno much more than just a regular edition one.
You'll also likely keep your value on your Ego a little better than on the Axe, as new team edition Axes roll out quite a bit with no real update, and they all tank in value after the seasons done.
The ego 11 is the better option by far. Way more efficient and way more user adjustable performance options than the Axe. Especially since they run from 800-900$ there is nothing really dragging the marker down by comparison to the Axe. For the price you get incredible performance and tons of features.
You do not know what you do not know
The efficiency difference isn't that significant. The ego11 has a much better board, more traditional ergonomics and superb build quality. The axe is much smoother and quieter, but has polarizing ergonomics. Like most high-ends, it's preference.
