Best High end gun?

I have been into paintball for awhile and I've decided I want a high end gun. There are so many out there. Can someone tell me differences between them all. What are some better at than others. THANKS

Best is completely subjective. Let's start with what you are looking for in a marker. Can you rank for me the qualities that are important to you? Ease of Maintenance? Shot Smoothness? Reliability? What are the important attributes to you?

I have a review I started a few years ago that I will provide a link to later that you can look at. I would also check out the Review section here to see what other players like and don't like about the markers you are looking at.
Here are a few to look through:

I really like smooth shooting guns and reliable guns. I don't mind Maintance as much as long as it's not too complex. And I also like so special edition colors and things like that.

The M2 is smooth, easy to maintain, but not as efficient as others. It would probably be my best all around marker right now. The M2 just feels right in my hands and points very well for me. It just feels right.

The CS1 is more efficient, but not as smooth as my M2, and very easy to maintain. The ergonomics for me are not nearly as good as the M2, but still comfortable.

The ICE also feels great in the hands, it is as smooth as a CS1, but not as efficient nor as easy to maintain. That is not to say that the ICE is hard to maintain as it is not but the CS1 and M2 are easier.

Here is a link to another review I wrote covering many recient high-end markers. I'm going to port each to the review section here at some point.

they're all great, choose the one you like the best. IMO that would be the luxe or m2

I've owned everything except the M2. I've got to say for me the CS1/ CSR are the best all around. You have to see how it feels in the hands. The grips are on the fat side but I like it. Smoothness is in the eye of the beholder. I've shot Luxe,MacDev, vanquish, DM's. My CS1's feel every bit as smooth as any other high end but has good efficiency.

Probably going to have to go with the Luxe as well, however the CS1 / CSR is on par with shot quality and feel, thats a hard choice but im a little bias i suppose.

keep in mind high ends from 2011 are just as good as the ones that came out in 2016. Find what you like best and fits your needs and wants.

Luxe is nice if you want quiet and smooth. I bought and then sold my Luxe ICE. Efficiency was equal if not worse than my old luxe. The new coating does get rid of any bolt stick issues of the past.

Best is relative. I like my Cs1, but I play on a sponsored team. Easy to maintain, no doubt. Easy to find a tech if something goes crazy. Customer service is top shelf in the industry. Always important when you're spending big bucks. I really don't believe you could go wrong with any of the suggestions I've seen posted here so far.
