Didnt like my quest, thought my dm6 was smoother and much quieter. Protege/vice still the best value in the used market. Havent owned a g6r/ego11 yet so cant comment on those.
Course ive only owned a couple dozen or so diff types of markers since 97. I would follow the above advise and try shooting some of these. Might be surprised how little difference there is anymore.
