Have you shot an FX? If you can, you probably should first. Stock, they are meh, IMO but with a TechT bolt and ram, they are better. I still prefer an F8 over a FX though. Opinions will vary. In the end, it's up to you.

F7 and F8 > FX

I have had nothing but problems with the FX. Eye cover fitment issues, bolt issues, detent issues. Bolts snap in half, Poppet/valve pin gets stuck open, loud, kicky, bla bla bla.

meanwhile my Fusion 7 still shoots great.

I loved my FX when it was working. My two friends love theirs, when they work.

It is like the NT of mid range poppits.

I can not in good conscious suggest buying an FX.

Not sure why the negative comment. I love my FX

I owned couple highends, including the new GSL, 2013/14 VIS ripper splash, AXE PDD, DM's, 2012 reflex rail and FX. (Among other lower ends)

I never have issue with mine, i sold orher marker that i dont use, but hold on to this and my ION ever since i got it new.
I replaced the bolt amd the ram (techT) shoot great easy to maintain. Maybe open the ram every 2-4K shoots and lube the bolt at the end of game day. This isy back up even aftet playing with my GSL or during rainny day. Super work horse, easier to maintain than my axe as a back up.

So i guess its up to the individual preference.
GSL Prestige 2 214, Dye Dam Olive Green, 2013 bob long ripper splash, Empire axe PDD, Planet Eclipse Ego 11, 2012 proto reflex rail Dyecam, DP FX, fully upped ion, tippmann tipx, A-5 and carver one
