For some this isn't an issue and maybe their markers never go down, but I definitely look at those issues too before I buy a marker.
Btw I have shoot the Axe it is a really good and popular mid range marker with plenty of aftermarket and service if needed. The only thing I replaced on it was the feed neck cuz I wanted a low rise. As for endorsement I traded my a few months back and have recently picked another back up. Solid choice.
Great point, but not even shops know how to work on he Axe or have parts for them.
Macdev has turned over this last year with upping there service and repair centers. We have been brought in to assure that the support is needed In forums, tech contact phone #s, events and to bring on more service centers. All manufactures require shipping the marker in for repair if a warranty claim is needed unless a store is a certified warranty center. A standard store can not administer warranty on any manufactures marker unless they are an approved warranty center. So you statement is untrue and is your opinion. Since you have never owned or even used a Macdev product you have not had to deal with a repair or service center.
