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.
