Changes from axe2011 to axe2013

I'm about to buy an axe but I didn't find a list of changes(improvements) that empire made on axes trough years. On empire website I didn't find anything about that.


What is the last version of the empire axe?
How can I identify just by looking the gun, there is some difference on the grip or something like that?


Thanks!

There aren't any differences to my knowledge. Most of the bugs were worked out with the Mini by the time the Axe was released. The only difference I've heard was that some have rounded edges on the trigger guard while some don't. So buy any Axe you can get your hands on, they will all shoot the same.

Oops I forgot about the Shockwave board. That's the biggest and the only really noticeable difference.

I think your correct. I want to say the "2011" feed neck was weaker than the "2012-2013" feed neck. I know guys were snapping off the older feed necks but I haven't had any problems with my newer axe feed neck

There havent been any "Omg I Snapped My Feedneck!!!!" threads in a while so I assumed what I heard was true

I just bought a Dark Axe new from Warped, I dont have it yet. Not knowing when it was originally made, can I tell visually if it has the shockwave board or not?

The actual board will say optimus or shockwave on it. Without looking at the board, I don't think there's any other way.

It will have the shockwave board with the standard, or the redline OLED board if you bought a pro.
