They're both good guns. Your better of flipping a coin that asking because there's alot of fans for both. I've shot both, they both shot nice.

From our standpoint, we see the Etek4 being better. Because you spend less time messing with your gun and more time playing paintball.

Both are great shooting markers dont get me wrong, but when it comes down to maintenance and common issues, the Etek is easiest to take care of.
The amount of Axes that come into the shop with 2 common issues:
1. Reg problems, because they are non serviceable
2. Eye board malfunctions, because people never clean them due to the amount of steps to access them.
Most people will just swab into the front breach or feed tube when there is paint on the eyes. But depending how long the paint actually sits on the eye leads, it will corrode the eye leads off of the board.

The only real problems that Eteks have is usually operator error. Or if an O-ring fails somewhere, which is fairly easy to diagnose. If it leak from here, check this o-ring.. leaking here, check that o-ring.

Really, it just depends on the reliability of your gun functioning well during the match, and I find the no one beats PE in quality. I've been a fan for a while, and I have yet to find any consistent problems in their markers

I've got both, and they're both great guns...you really can't go wrong with either of them. The ETEK is pretty much bulletproof but I love the quietness and smoothness of my Axe as well. I have never had any issues with either of them.

Go to your local field, see if you can borrow one from someone and sling some paint with them...it will likely come down to which one feels more comfortable in your hands and possibly which one you can get a better deal on.
