Empire Axe. Easy maintenance compared to spools.

Extremely reliable. I haven't had a single problem that wasn't a two minute fix.

Best poppet valve guns are Eteks & Ego's

Etek : 2 , 3 & 4

Ego : 06 & up

For spools from what experience I've had I'd say Luxe , Dm series , Nt series , Mokal Aura , Machine Vapor Many more

I have a etek 3 and I love it. It's always reliable. And I bet u can find one kinda cheap now that the etek 4 is out.

I used to use a etek 3 it's amazing marker for the price point super reliable easy maintinence , it's a PE gun , and efficiency is alright, shoots pretty nice for a mid end to be honest

Most of the guns you listed are way out of the OP's price range.

The Eteks would be a good choice though. You can find plenty of Etek 3's on BST. Poppets IMO are easier to maintain. Less o-rings. Not everything is jammed into a single bolt assembly. Spools will give you a much smoother shot unless you are shooting an Ego 11 or G6R.

This. One of the best guns I have ever owned. Crazy efficient (over a case). Built like a tank. Just works. Minimal maintenance. I could do a full rebuild+lube in 10-15min. Used for $350-$450.

I would also pick the Vice over the Etek 3. Toss up between it and the Etek 4.
