Geo 1 Thoughts?

I sold my empire axe about a year ago because i needed money, I loved paintball and want to get back into it. I found a deal for a Planet Eclipse Geo 1 for $275 and was wondering if that was worth the pick up or would i be better off getting another axe or etek?

Found a good deal on a Etek 3 AM for $300 so that is another option.

you could find better than that. I would go with a GTEK, Geo 3, or a used JT Impulse.

I would browse the BST; always deals to be had there. Planet Eclipse guns are solid choices. I, currently, have two. Owned an 06 Ego that never gave me issues, as well. Very good build quality.

I've been partial to the G6R. I feel like if you want a single tube option, a Bob Long Vis or VCOM Victory would be the way to go.

Not trying to sound like a troll or be rude, but I mean it could be because anyone that tried Bob long's hasn't taken the time to sweet spot them for the area, so they shoot like poop.

If you have a pressure tester, you can just set them to the recommended pressures and they'll shoot great (better than Ego11's). That takes 5 minutes, tops and you you need to do it just when you disassemble your LPR (once a year or so). If you want to go further, you can fine tune the pressures more, which usually takes me about 10-15 minutes at a chrono and a pod or two of paint. It doesn't make a huge difference, though. Bob Long guns shoot well at stock pressures without tuning.
