Getting back into The game- Need help with Marker Choice

Ok guys been out of the game since 2010. Need help with getting a newish marker. Looking to spend 550 nothing major for a really nice used gun.
List of what im looking at:
Luxe 2.0 and OLED
BL Onslaught
Axe Pro
Geo 3.1
MacDev Clone 5 or GTI
Shocker RSX
LV1
LV1.1

If im missing anything please add to list and explain it for me
What do you guys think? I want something that is reliable, easy to maintain, and just a good overall gun. If I decide later I want to come back all the way then I might upgrade.. Please help
Thanks in advance guys

You have a good list here. I would only drop the axe and even look into a geo 3.0 the only difference between the 3.0 and 3.1 is the at pipe versus macroline. Plus you will save a hundred bucks. Stick a iv core in the geo 3.0 and you basically have a geo 3.5 without the quick release bolt. Youtube reviews are great for this sort of thing especially if you cant fire each of these. Ans gear does great reviews and some shooting videos. Your pb friend used to do good reviews. And hustle paintball made a 45 minute lv1 review that I can sum up in one sentence "buy this gun".

What about the Bob Long onslaught? IT doesn't seem like they are as high as they use to be.. The BOb long I bought used in 2010 was holding its value really well..

its all going to be preference.

Its a great all around gun. Very similair to the geo with lv1 efficiency. Its a nice mix so far it has been reliable and a gun I like alot for the price.

What kind of traits do you value the most in a gun?

Smoothest, quietest shot?
Simplicity, ease of maintenance
Air efficiency
Small/compact vs. longer reach

Stuff like that.

I would say something that is easy to maintain/tune but is efficient.. speed is ok not the most important thing.. I want accurate and consistency

When I played tournaments I used a spider shutter with upgraded boards, my gun now is. 2010 bob long intimidator. I like the look of the luxe and even the YouTube videos show it's got no kick and is quiet. But when I left the game bob long was top top of the line

No its a new gun. Used probably around 700. It's not fantastic for how much it is hyped up. The geo with an iv core will serve you better for cheaper.

Can you compare the Geo to the onslaught for me?

Pretty damn similair. I like the bob long oled board better then the geos. The geo is less efficient. They have basically the same shot quality. I would however pick up a onslaught instead of a geo becausse of the difference in efficiency. Having a spool shot with a poppet efficiency is crazy.

I bought it over a geor for those reasons. I just dont need it now since I have a ripper with a vis engine. And 6 other guns. The vis matches the shot with the same efficiency. Plus its a super unique anno so I had to choose between keeping a gun that does something I already have a gun for and getting a few bucks back to pick up a new gun.

ok so its down to the ONSlAUGHT, LV1or 1.1 and geo 3.1, all seem great. Onslaught is more efficient. So now it comes down to maintenance and easy tuning

Onslaught vs lv1 on that. I am biased since I own both. The only difference between the lv1 and the 1.1 is the one piece fore grip (which you can buy for 25 bucks) a different barrel front (50 bucks maximum) and a larger lpr chamber which gives it not too noticeable softer shot. It is more beneficial to just get a lv1 and save the extra 300 from the 1.1. Onslaught only has the dwell to tune no lpr. Lv1 is stupidly easy to tune even though it has a lpr. Geo is the same but if you want one look at a 3.0 and get a iv core its cheaper. The only difference between the 3.1 and the 3.0 is the at pipe versus the macroline.

You have quite a list there and such a wide range, it would help you narrowed it down to the type of paintball you play and how often.

So are you only looking at Spoolies? Or would you be interested in like an Ego 11? Can get a real nice darted Ego 11 for less than that.
