Wrong thread. Post here please.

This a VS thread. I know it is minor being between an axe and a mini, but it is agaisnt the rules.


In all seriousness, the axe and the mini are very similar, using the same platform. The axe is a higher level marker, having a better board, an on/off asa regulator, and better internals. Between the two, the axe is worth the extra money if you are planning to play tournament and use it alot. If you are going to play occasionally or lightly, save your money for paint and get a mini.

change the lube!!! DP's cant use the stock lube, also i think they put lube on the noid, take it off!

if i had to say, it depends on your hands, are they small? what position do you play? front or mid? or just back?

if your hands are small you'll b ok with the mini. its cheaper and the same thing, only just a smidgen smaller. the axe's only difference is the grip frame is widened. oh and the on off asa

AXE. The mini is being replaced by axe and is made to shoot real brittle paint. Plus it gets great air efficiency. It is longer and more stable

Toolless bolt and the on/off regulator make the Axe a no-brainer.

i dont see the performance difference between the G4 and the MINI, but the G4 feels much better in the hands than the mini does.

I would go with the axe. A lot of pro teams shoot them.

rather have a Victory or G6R than an ego but AXE is a great marker.
