I was just bein sarcastic. I completely forgot about the tool-less bolt on the Axe. I dont really mind removing a screw to get to the bolt, anytime i do remove a bolt, i'm typically sitting at home with my allen keys right next to me anyway.
Either way, i still stand by the fact that an Axe isnt a huge upgrade from a mini.. If you're buying new, its obviously cheaper in the long run to just go with the axe at the start, but to take a loss on selling your mini to buy an axe doesnt justify the differences between the two.
