Nt11 vs. axe

Just wondering what you guys think. I can get a used nt11 or an axe. The nt has all the spacers and flow inserts, and isn't one that chops all the time. I have held the nt but not the axe, and it feels amazing.

Are you paying the same for both? I would go with the NT11 if you don't mind working on a spooly. The Axe is easier to work on and shoots about the same but is not built as well as the NT11.

I find it kind of funny how people won't touch the mini with a 10 foot pole but the axe is considered a god among paintball guns.

I personally hate the feeling of the axe. Just feels too thin in through grip frame .

I find it funny how haters will come up with any and every reason NOT to buy an Axe, simply because lots of people love them.

I'm not saying it isn't a good gun, I'm just look at the dichotomy between the axe and the mini. Also, how the TS is comparing an axe to a gun twice it's price. It's amazing what marketing can do.

Exactly, that is the mindset I'm laughing at:

Sheep: "The axe is the best gun to hit the market."
Sarcasm incarnate: "What about the mini?"
Sheep: "That thing is a piece of **** and whoever invented it should be sent to a special hell where they have to ref a 10-year-old's birthday party for all time."
Sarcasm incarnate: "So, the axe and the mini are two different guns, huh?"
Sheep: "Of course, they are nothing alike, it is like comparing a spyder to a g6r."

Bahaha... Right on. Given the OG minis had some issues, but a v3 mini is an axe with VERY minor differences.

I'd go with the nt. I heard that the most recent nt11's didn't have problems that the original one did. Also I just don't like the way the axe's foregrip is shaped.
