Backup Marker

I've just kicked off my first season in PSP with My Empire Mini. A ton of people have told me that I should probably get a backup marker. Now that my Mini has started to show some slight issues (recurring), I do see the sense in getting a backup. My question is, what's a good backup marker for a D5 player?

Why get a back up marker. Just by a reliable marker.

What's wrong with your mini? Did you buy it new?

get a better gun, and use the mini as a backup. Try an axe as your first choice or an older ego and use the mini as a backup.

This^ viable options for a main gun that are not too expensive are the ego7/8 platform (they shoot great and are reliable), an axe, or a bob long vice. If you are looking at spool valved markers i would recommend a macdev droid,

But the PSP season hasn't begun yet... Anyways, yea, I'd get an axe, or older ego, maybe a bob long vice or timmy, or even macdev drone.

Local tourneys bro...

I played a couple tourneys this summer with a Mini and didn't really have any issues, as long as you're good to it, it will be good to you. But if you want a backup, I'd suggest upgrading to the Axe if you like the Mini then keeping the Mini as a backup.

If you really need something cheap, I'd say pick up a stock Ion and set it to 12bps semi and just roll with that. They can be had for as low as $60 and just like the Mini will work as long as you show it love.

Get an axe
And mini for "backup"
Axe is pretty darn reliable
You might not need the mini
Sell and buy gear

The season HAS started for CFPS
Anyway, I think I may upgrade to the Axe and just use the Mini as a backup. A friend of mine has an Axe so I can see how I like it this weekend.
